  7. 7. LOCAL MEDIA The Changing Media Landscape  70% of Africans have experienced the internet for the first time on their handset: it’s the norm Source: Global mobile statistics 2012.  Activities such as blogging and social networking are fast gaining momentum as over half of those in Kenya (55%) and Tanzania (50%) have written their own blog or forum entry, compared to only 32% in the US Source: Digital Life, a global research project into people’s online activities and behavior.  Free to Air analogue terrestrial broadcast and satellite still dominate the African TV market, but new technologies such as online TV, programme streaming, VoD, Mobile TV, cable-fibre, MMDS and IPTV, coupled with the imminent switch to digital (DTT and DTV) means that this emerging broadcasting market will undergo great changes and increased competition in the years to come Source: Balancing Act African Media Report 2012  A third of US sports fans use smartphones to access sports content, and of those fans, 36% access sports content via their mobile device at least once per day. Also, a quarter of US sports fans are now using social networking platforms to follow sports. Source: Sporting News Media's third annual survey into US sports media Copyright Gary Rathbone 2013
  8. 8. LOCAL MEDIA An Appetite For Local Content Content generation with locally produced, relevant programming will take the TV industry by storm. The two-hour slot post the evening news, which is currently ruled by international soaps dubbed into local languages, shall be replaced with local programming. Nandkishor Buty, CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Africa Nothing resonates with audiences and advertiser like sport – and nothing has the potential to grow local audience like local sport. Gary Rathbone, Head of Sport, Zuku Copyright Gary Rathbone 2013
  9. 9. LOCAL SPORT Reasons to be Optimistic  The environment around local sport has changed dramatically in recent years:  Better facilities  Better administration  Better talent and talent development  The success of international sport in attracting a global audience has helped raise awareness for similar sporting codes at local level  More African sportsmen and women are achieving success at an international level. This in turn is raising awareness at a local level Copyright Gary Rathbone 2012
  10. 10. LOCAL SPORT A Range of Sporting Opportunities  It’s time to consider the full range of local sporting opportunities  Even smaller sports with a niche fan base can have great value to an advertiser if that base is the target for his product  We need to acknowledge the complexities that exist among sports fans in each market. It is not only about football…  Bringing niche local sports into the world of local television and media is a simpler and more cost effective way of getting sports content that can resonate with your market. If you build it…they will come! Kevin Costner in ‘Field of Dreams’ Copyright Gary Rathbone 2012
