View Along the TV App Landscape: The Early Innovators

Anyone developing mobile apps for TV should check out George Winslow’s excellent piece at CableBroadcasting, View Along the App Landscape, surveying TV apps from interviews with 25 TV executives.  While networks have had early successes launching second-screen apps that accompany TV shows, like the ABC Grey’s Anatomy app and The Royal Wedding by NBC News App for iPad, iPhone and Android that surpassed 200,000 downloads, executives in digital and mobile admitted to still refining the business cases for companion apps.  TV Everywhere apps are now taking the stage for networks like ESPN, CNN, and Turner, all of which continues to emphasize the complexity of TV offerings that fans need to navigate to access content and watch their favorite shows.

Programming Discovery and Personalization at TV of Tomorrow

In this panel at the May TV of Tomorrow conference top innovators in TV programming discovery and technology talk about helping users navigate the fragmentation of rights, new devices, subscription services, and the impulsivity of TV anywhere.  Finding new shows to watch has been determined largely by recommendations by friends and trusted sources and yes, the onscreen programming guide.   Discovery is further complicated now to decide when and where to watch – on air, time shifted on DVR, catch-up streaming, premium on-demand viewing.

Moving forward, personalized recommendations, the personal TV guide, the personal “what to watch, now” will be how we find and watch. As we like to say “Bringing TV to You.”

Yidio Office Opening and 3rd Anniversary Celebration – Check out the Photos!

June 8th the new Yidio office in San Francisco was buzzing with activity and excitement in preparation for our grand opening party. Our entire team descended upon Mission Street from across the country and, with over 200 RSVPs, the crew was ready to introduce our new space to friends, family and our comrades in the industry.

The evening was filled with great conversation and good laughs, it was huge success. We also ventured out for a Giants game and, while they lost by a run, we had a blast! Check out a few photos from the event and of our team.
