Don't go there. If you analyse TV news down, it consists of an A4 page of information spun out to an hour. Lose the noise, and we'd have a 3 minute news bulletin.
I was interested in that. Stats NZ do a detailed survey of time use every ten years, and I wonder what the next one (in 2019) might show.
That’s not because companies (and the public sector especially) don’t want to market to under-25s, there are a huge amount of dollars spent trying to do that. (Not least because the cheap beer, mobile phone and banking providers they choose might keep them for a fairly long time, statistically).
It’s just that that they don’t watch TV3 and TV3 doesn’t make programmes for them.
Also, I have a suspicion that the reason they don't explicitly target over 55's is that the advertisers just know their eyeballs are locked to the TV 24/7 and don't need to explicitly serve them.
I assumed you meant taking the afternoon off to physically go to the ground and watch?
And I assumed that with online multi-player games there was some advantage in being among the first in?
But then, I don't do sport (other than my annual ski trip), I don't watch telly and I don't do games.
These guys whole SOP -
1. don't understand a new area of business
2. set up a flawed operation
3. get the government to bail us out
Remember Telecom T3G?
I think that for those three events, they can only be done at the scheduled time. The telly is the same if you watch it now, tonight, next week or five years in the future.
(If you wait five years, it has the advantage that the hype is gone and you can make a reasoned decision to stop wasting your time after 10 minutes).
You believe what you want to believe, eh.
Mediaworks wants to make lots of money in an industry where regulation (or lack of) has a lot of influence on how much money is made. It's owned by a private capital company that's culturally in accord with the government's ideology. Not to mention that in return for playing nicely, Mediaworks gets let off paying its bills on time.
I'd say they'd listen when John Key calls.
It's interesting how Netflix only filter by IP, rather than caring about where you 'were" when signing up, how you pay, etc. So, as that page indicates, if I access the service from NZ, I get the NZ content, but if I move (physically or virtually) to the US, I get US content.
That says to me that they, at least, don't really care very much about where their customers are.
See also the "www" which appeared on the front of a URL because an organisation wanting to make a web presence would set up a dedicated server and name this www.gradgrind.com to go with mail.gradgrind.com and ftp.gradgrind.com.
