  • Here’s an example of how the green button will work PLAY DEMO
  • So that’s a quick summary of some of the research into DTR usage Now let’s have a look at some facts and figures about DTRs
  • 2010 revenue: TV = £4.3b (share= 27.7%) Press = £4.3b (share= 27.7%) Internet = £4.1b (share= 26.4%) Radio = £523m (share= 3.4%) Outdoor = £880m (share= 5.7%) Cinema = £182 million (up 1.2%)

  • In fact, we have been calling it the 3 rd Age of Television Tv has changed beyond all recognition in the last 30 years. However, that fact remains that it has, and will continue, to move with developments and stand the test of time. Nearly 95% of us are now digital. We can now interact with our tvs, download the content we want, when and where we want it and view over a variety of channels from the box in the corner to our pc’s, ipods and mobiles. That’s why we call today the third age of television…and it hasn’t stopped yet!
  • After all the fieldwork was conducted and the BARB reports analysed we spoke to a few psychologists about our project and some of the phenomenon we discovered to put some theory behind our findings. After all of this we realised that overall there are two main reasons why shared viewing occurs and why it will continue to do so. In a very basic sense, it is because of, what we’ve termed, ‘emotion’ and ‘interaction’ with differing shared viewing behaviours.
  • And for viewers? Can ‘own’ the content View at a convenient time – increasing the level of engagement Save and view as often as required, share with friends/family
  • The whole issue pf payback is something that TB takes very seriously. Indeed, during the back half of 2008, we staged an event on payback drawing on some of the best minds in the business. Here’s a taster of what we found and some of the main themes that we’ll talk about today.

  • TOPICS TO COVER: 2-screen viewing is highly prevalent. 1 in 3 of our sample claimed to engage in 2-screen viewing every day. Online chat is skewed towards a younger audience
  • Online is not the only technology that is good news for advertisers. There are various other technologies that at first some thought might be disruptive but actually have turned out to be a positive thing for TV People thought that the DTR would mean the death of the 30 second spot and that everyone would fast forward through ads. Actually what’s meant is that people have fallen even more in love with their TV sets. I’ll give you the stats in a minute People worried that on-demand TV would mean the end of the schedule and that everyone would be watching TV on demand instead of live Actually people mostly use on-demand for catch up so they don’t miss out on their favourite programme. This means they are more likely to stay with a series because they don’t ever miss an episode Finally, there were those that were concerned that YouTube would eat into broadcast TV but in reality YouTube acts as an informal PR machine for TV. I’ll give you an example. The week when Susan Boyle was viewed extensively on youtube, the next week’s episode of Britain’s Got Talent did even more ratings than the week before
  • So you can see from those clips how technology is enhancing viewing. People are able to get more involved with their favourite programmes by using the internet to communicate with each other The combination of TV and the internet can also be beneficial to advertisers Last year, we commissioned some research together with the IAB looking into how TV and online work together We studied 3,000 people aged 16 to 54 and each of them had to have digital TV and also broadband Also they had to be medium or heavy users of both media which meant at least 1 hour of internet a day and at least 2 hours of TV a day This sample represented the 25% most digitally enabled households in the country We found out lots of general information about how and why people use TV, the internet and both together and we also investigated 3 categories which were fmcg, automotive and finance
  • When we looked at this again earlier this year, things had developed quickly No longer just the early mainstreamers – nearly all broadband users were engaging in Tv and online activity simultaneously More than half on a daily basis – three quarters amongst the under 35’s And, as a result, just about every broadband user we surveyed could recall at least one online journey as a direct response to what they had seen on TV

  • So we’ve seen huge growth since – and more to come But let’s put it all into perspective – still less than 2% of total TV viewing time

  • And when brands get it right, it is marketing gold. Explain Meerkat 750,000 Facebook fans (+ 326 offers of marriage/256 offers of adoption) – great opportunity to create a dialogue Lots more brands beginning to make the link and use the two together
  • But the brilliant thing which has happened more recently since the internet has become such an important part of our lives is that we are now able to continue our offline behaviour but in a different space. Now we gossip at the watercooler about telly and we text and twitter about it and we discuss it on Facebook and MySpace and we share favourite bits of content on Youtube.
  • Here’s an example of how the green button will work PLAY DEMO
  • Including us at Thinkbox Our second ad campaign recently ran – got ot use TV to sell Tv It is about how a dog uses TV to demonstrate its product benefits SHOW VIDEO
  • Harvey has now become a big social media hit – almost a million views on YT so far plus tens of thousands of followers But that is not the goal – it is to do better business Website traffic +400% Planning requests +200% And we are a product they are not really interested in – just think what brands they might want to buy could achieve!

  • When research usually tries to tackle creativity – squeezes the life out of it (e.g. pre-testing) Always looking for the formula, when creativity should be anti-formula This is different Doesn’t try to change the creative process, or dictate how ads should be made Does open up insights that help us create big differences via small changes – often just a minor edit!
  • TOPICS TO COVER The 3 rd Age of TV is maturing – moving away from fragmentation towards integration. Content and advertisers can harness all touch points and coordinate them to create a community around their message App culture on TV? What apps will move to the television? (will we still be watching youtube on a laptop, or the TV itself?) Bit questions around how three screen work together in the future. Will people still need more than one screen at a time? Point about how Youtube on TV works as a sharing tool (to set up for later, so may be a natural fit for moving from laptop to TV

  • TOPICS TO COVER: Internet-connected technology means more capacity for enhanced red button services, such as ‘click to watch more’, see ‘behind the scenes’ and commercial purchasing However, due to the task-based nature of TV viewing, there is also an opportunity to task-unintrusive advertising: click to watch later etc. These new formats work in sympathy with viewing behaviour There are questions about measurement; a topic that will be covered in the following panel discussion

    4. 5. The first signs of the ‘TV is Dead’ movement “ TV is, at heart, a totalitarian regime. Its viewers...sinking into a passive stupor before the tube. Its overthrow will be a major force for freedom and individuality, culture and morality” “ Television is not vulgar because people are vulgar, but because people are similar in their prurient interests” George Gilder – Life After Television (1994) “ There is a fundamental shift in human behaviour going on – and the question is no longer if, but rather when more television consumption will occur via the internet than traditional broadcast or cable platforms” “ At the end of the day, people want to sit down the friction of having to sit down in front of a TV set at the appointed time” Michael Arrington – TechCrunch (2006)

    15. 16. TV pay back more than any other medium...and for longer TV payback across two years+ - most other media across weeks Payback driven by FAME and EMOTION, not rational measures TV builds brand value – more profitable TV boosts performance of other media...especially online Power = payback: 3 studies show TV most effective
