Q&A With Twitter’s Robin Sloan: Tweets Transform TV

TV has a huge influence on what people are talking about on Twitter, but the opposite is true as well: TV networks listen to Twitter and use tweets as feedback. Robin Sloan talks to us about how Twitter works with TV programmers, and vice versa.

NewTeeVee Live: Comedy Central Gets 500,000 Online Viewers From HuffPost, No Joke

Erik Flannigan, Executive Vice President of Digital Media at MTV Networks Entertainment Group, shared some interesting details at our NewTeeVee Live conference today about the way his networks are utilizing online video. Flannigan’s job is overseeing the web sites of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, and these sites have been generating tons of video views for the network. Take Jon Stewart ripping into Fox News, for example. Clips like that receive 500,000 viewers from Huffington Post alone.
Flannigan doesn’t fear that people will shun their cable subscription for HuffPost’s embedded clips and ColbertNation streams. “Putting content online isn’t eating into your network ad sales”, he told the audience of NewTeeVee Live. Comedy Central’s online video traffic is always in sync with its network ratings. “That’s a good thing if you have hits and a bad thing if you don’t,” he added. Part of MTVN’s strategy for the future is to actually disintegrate these properties a little bit so online can have more a life of its own.
So what’s in store for monetizing Comedy Central and Spike TV content online? Flannigan said that he doesn’t see big changes ahead for some of it’s most popular shows. The network produces 160 episodes each year for both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, and he doesn’t see anyone spend 99 cents for each episode anytime soon. In other words: Advertising is where it’s at, and the cake is only gonna get bigger.

Online Video Rights: Why Technology Isn’t Enough to Bring About Change

[qi:_newteevee] This morning’s Video Rights Roundtable was, as we hoped, a rare opportunity for online video industry players to talk about their conflicts and collaborations in the wild — not in a courtroom or conference room.  In a (more than) two-hour discussion, the nearly 50 attendees shared their perspectives on the increasingly complex world of rights, responsibility and opportunities surrounding online video content. Complete liveblog coverage is available at GigaOM Pro (subscription required), and Ryan Lawler was on-site with some additional event coverage at NewTeeVee. More links below the fold (and full event video coming soon!).   Read More about Online Video Rights: Why Technology Isn’t Enough to Bring About Change

CSI Creator to Keynote at NewTeeVee Live

Anthony Zuiker, creator and executive producer of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” (and the producer of all “CSI” franchise shows), is going to deliver a keynote speech at our NewTeeVee Live conference that will be held in San Francisco on Nov. 13.
He will join Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, and Jason Kilar, CEO of Hulu, as keynote speakers for the conference, which will explore the importance of professional content as one of its major themes. Zuiker, as part of his talk, is going to discuss how the emergence of new platforms such as mobile and the Internet are changing the art of storytelling. He calls it cross-platform storytelling.
When I spoke with Zuiker earlier this week, he said he was working on games, digital books and video to create new kinds of entertainment experiences. He predicts that the future of content involves giving the user control, a sense of ownership over it.
To find out what else is on his mind, join us at our conference: check out the schedule, the speakers, and get your tickets.
See you in November!
