Log In. IHS: new Bundesliga TV deal a game changer for Germany. The new deal to televise the Bundesliga German national football league whereby no single operator will hold exclusive rights will bring the country into line with other major markets says research from IHS.
Sky, Eurosport nets Bundesliga rights until 2021. Just as it has done with the English Premier League, pay-TV giant Sky has swooped to win the lion’s share of rights to show the German Bundesliga until 2021.
Following a successful outcome to the Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL) tender process, which it says left it as the disputed home of football in Germany, Sky will show 572 live matches a season from 2017/18 to 2020/21 across all platforms, meaning that it will continue to broadcast 93% of all live matches, including full live coverage of Bundesliga matches on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. For the first time, Sky will also become the exclusive live broadcaster for all matches of the Bundesliga 2 regular season, with an additional live match on Monday evenings. Yet gaining such rights comes at a cost. Log In. MIPTV report Fiction, formats, fronts & VR lead trending topics MIPBlog.

Traditional media companies successfully innovate on snapchat. Older media brands are succeeding in attracting Snapchat’s millennial users to view their content, made specifically for the social network, says research from Future Scape.
The analyst says that its survey of 1,117 US Snapchat users conducted for Variety magazine will reassure major media owners that their brands and content continue to be relevant to teen and young adult audiences on the social media network. Indeed the Snapchat Report found that American millennials view well-established media brands on the Snapchat Discover distribution platform rather than media which targets their generation. Millennials’ most popular news publisher was BuzzFeed, which leads the rankings with 54% of respondents saying they usually view its Discover stories.

Hollywoodreporter. Snapchat live stories - Variety PMC. Snapchat’s political coverage is the most prominent component of its growing ambitions to provide its distinctly strange style of programming to an audience CNN would envy: At an investor conference earlier this month, CEO Evan Spiegel reportedly divulged that his platform was delivering 8 billion video views each day worldwide.
The number is all the more staggering considering it’s comparable to the last estimated video audience offered by Facebook, which has at least 10 times the 100 million-strong user base Snapchat boasts. The company also claims that 10 million-20 million users watch Live Stories daily, and 41% of Americans aged 18-34 access the app on a daily basis; only 6% of that demographic watch the average U.S. TV network by the same measure. New Study Shows Millennials Prefer Short Mobile Videos, While Older Crowds Like Long-form. A new study says millennials who view videos on their phones resonate more with brands that take a short-form approach to spots, while older audiences tend to agree more with the traditional 30-second length.
The study, conducted by IAB in partnership with Millward Brown Digital and Tremor Video, found brands running 10-second mobile video ads have greater appeal and persuasion potential with younger audiences. However, a slightly longer, 30-second spot did better with those between the ages of 35 and 54. Researchers used 10-second spots and 30-second spots for brands in the automotive, CPG and quick casual restaurant industries. Participants then viewed the ads on either a desktop, smartphone or tablet before answering a series of questions related to ad receptivity and brand effectiveness.
