Background – Local TV
"Birmingham Alabama has eight local TV
stations, despite being a quarter of the size
of our Birmingham that… doesn't even
have one." Jeremy Hunt, Former Secretary
of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and
Sport
" The Pothole Paradox and why local TV is
destined to fail….. there are many things in
our lives that are considered newsworthy,
but the very nature of these events mean
that they are only newsworthy to a limited
number of people.." The Economist

Background – the Second Screen
The number of U.S. mobile subscribers
watching video on their mobile devices rose
more than 40 percent year-over-year
between 2010 and 2013.
Projected growth in mobile video advertising
over the period 2010 to 2015 is 1000% for
national and 4000% for local advertising.
In the UK currently TV viewed on other
devices is a small part of total viewing
according to BARB. This data in terms of
on-line consumption represents either a
huge anomaly or a huge opportunity

Background – Digital Landscape
US Local TV channels deliver four “killer
apps”;
• News
• Sport
• Weather
• Travel
Services are streamed live with pre-reel
and conventional web advertising.
34 million people watch BBC TV news
every week - the highest figure since 2006.
Live linear is still the core of television
viewing today, accounting for about 85% of
total viewing across all devices and 89% of
total television viewing

Opportunities – Demand
• Live video follows the traditional TV viewing pattern.
• This might change as mobile operators provide faster
cheaper access to data.
• Video streaming services must track this usage pattern
to maximise returns.
• Making use of cloud scaling architecture is essential.

Trials suggest micro-revenue model
scales quickly when driven by
community relevant content and usage

SUMMARY
• Local TV presents opportunities for cross platform distribution
which addresses the “pothole paradox” through providing new
demand, new reach and new mechanisms for audience targeting
• “Crown Jewel” services of News, Sport, Weather and Travel are
ideal content to drive cross platform consumption of local media
output and to provide new business models around users analytics
and transaction-based services
• Projects over the past 12 months to overcome the technical
challenges around scalable streaming, sentiment analysis and
micro billing have led to the development of new platforms suitable
for L-DTPS services
• AIMES investment in a new 1.5MW resilient cloud computing
campus here in Liverpool has been made to help exploit these
new opportunities
