Women’s Sports Insights and Eurodata TV conference in Los Angeles

2017 comes to an end and we have fantastic news for the end of the year and for the beginning of 2018: a new report dedicated to Women’s sport, an exclusive which will be held in Los Angeles, the new editions of our Yearly Sport Key Facts and Young Adults reports.

We are pleased to announce the release of a brand-new product in our catalogue: The Women’s Sport Insight Report. The Sports TV landscape has been in constant evolution over the last few years, being especially marked by the rights’ transfers of premium properties from Free-to-Air to Pay TV channels. These changes have offered less exposed events increased visibility and among them, women’s sports competitions such as the UEFA Women’s European Championships or the Women’s Rugby World Cup have clearly maximized this opportunity to reach new heights in terms of TV ratings. That is why we have decided to investigate the new visibility of women’s sports on TV in Europe and the USA and noteworthy results can be highlighted. You can read more about the results of the report on the first article of this newsletter. This November we will also publish the new edition of the Yearly Sport Key Facts Report which provides clear data of the TV consumption on major sporting events in more than 45 territories across 5 continents with more than 150 competitions covered.

For the first time in 2018, we will fly to Los Angeles and meet the American TV industry. Indeed, we will host a conference: New On The Air – “Content & usage: what’s capturing the audience’s interest worldwide?" on January 25th at the Andaz West Hollywood. This conference will be an opportunity for us to share exclusive insights into TV & video content trends and consumer usage worldwide. If you would like to attend this event, do not hesitate to contact us.

Coming also in November, the new edition of our Young Adults report. The report gives a clear understanding of one of the most volatile target groups in television, covering 10 territories from September 2016 to June 2017. If you are interested in this report, please contact us.

Animaccord (Masha & The Bear) – Victoria Bolotova - Senior Media Manager – Russia

Masha and the Bear has been a tremendous success worldwide, could you please explain to us what makes this Kids programme a hit?

Since its release in 2009, Masha and the Bear has travelled worldwide because it is a very unique property for many reasons:

First of all, it has an outstanding animation technique (3D CGI) - Masha and the Bear is one of the most expensive TV cartoon series ever developed with quality matching world’s best animation studios.

Also, Masha and The Bear is a unique idea about the relationship between a child and a grown-up, a universal topic that can relate too everyone. The author behind the show has a strong long-term vision and knows how to keep it exciting which makes the development of the programme easier.

If you have ever watched Masha and The Bear, you must have noticed that there is a lot of music and songs that are played in many episodes. On average, every three episodes of Masha and The Bear has a brand-new song, which children adore.

Masha and the Bear is a family show, it is not just targeting preschoolers. We can see that, thanks to ratings across various broadcasters and media platforms, parents also enjoy the show.

Finally, our worldwide know Kids show always delivers remarkable results. This has been proved by media ratings across the globe, regardless if it is watched on TV or on VOD platform or its country of origin. The show is a real success internationally and we are very proud of it.

What are your main projects for the coming months and especially for 2018?

For 2018, we are very pleased to announce that two seasons of the original Series Masha and the Bear have been already produced. This year will also welcome as well as two spin-offs - Masha's Tales and Masha's Spooky Stories.

Animaccord is currently at the production stage of the third season. For the moment, the first 15 episodes are finished, the remaining 11 will be ready in early 2019.

Of course, we are also working on some new ideas and hope to present them very soon.

How does the information provided by Eurodata TV Worldwide help you in your work?

Women's sports on the front line on television

The 2016/2017 sporting season, a year without major events such as the FIFA World Cup or the Olympic Games, has been a year of increased opportunities for less mediatised sporting events and competitions. Eurodata TV Worldwide has investigated the new visibility of women’s sports on TV in Europe and the USA and remarkable results can be highlighted.

The Sports TV landscape has been in constant evolution over the last few years, being especially marked by the rights’ transfers of premium properties from Free-to-Air to Pay TV channels. These changes have offered less exposed events increased visibility and among them, women’s sports competitions such as the UEFA Women’s European Championships or the Women’s Rugby World Cup have clearly maximized this opportunity to reach new heights in terms of TV ratings. The attraction for women’s sporting events has grown over recent years.

The 2017 UEFA Women’s European Championships has been one the most popular competitions in Europe.

In France, there has been more than 51 hours of live broadcasts on the France Télévisions Group of channels, versus less than 12 hours for the 2013 event, broadcast on W9. This represents an increase of +325% in terms of broadcast coverage. In Germany, a country where the Women’s Euro has already been successful, the volume of broadcasts has grown by +250%. As for men, women’s football leads the field. This was the case with the UEFA Women’s European Championships, especially when national teams were involved in the games aired. In France for instance, the national team’s games achieved a 3.4 million audience for a 16.9% audience share on France 2 and France 3. But the climax of this event came in the final round. In the Netherlands for example, the final aired on NPO1 achieving the highest sport audience of the year 2017 up to date (and the second of the year all genres) with more than 4.1 million viewers and an 82.7% market share!

Rugby is not only male skewed: the impressive performance of the Women’s Rugby World Cup.

Rugby in France is a sport usually known for being particularly male skewed. But after airing the Women’s 6 Nations tournament on France 4 for several years, France TV has dedicated more than 10 hours of the Women’s Rugby World Cup on their channels this summer, with two games airing in prime time on its flagship channel France 2. The Women’s Rugby World Cup also performed well in France, with the female version of the France vs England “crunch”, airing on prime time on France 2, being followed by 3 million fans on TV for a 14.6% market share. This game ranked at the 31st position in terms of sporting event of the year on this channel and the highest audience all time for a women’s rugby game.

Other sports have seen their exposure growing.

Among other events, women’s winter sports events are very popular in Germany: the highest audience of the Alpine Skiing World Championships in Saint-Moritz (Switzerland) was the women’s downhill, that reached a 3.8 million viewers audience on ZDF (23.8% market share). In France, the French women’s event organized by the Tour de France, “La Course by Le Tour De France” gathered together 2 million viewers on France 3 and a 16.9% share of audience. This race was also a success in the Netherlands and Belgium.

All the facts and figures from these analyses (and much more!) can be found in the Women’s Sports Insight Report, which will be released mid-November.

Scandinavian fiction growth: From “Nordic Noir” to comedy

Local creation of Scripted Series is increasing in Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Out of the 313 new shows launched in the region between September 2016 and August 2017, 34% were produced nationally or co-produced. More impressively, this part increased by 20 points in only 2 years. Local content is gaining ground in the Nordics, but Scandinavian fiction is also growing internationally

Scandinavian fiction is driven by the expansion of the “Nordic Noir”.

Mixing dreadful murders with beautiful landscapes, these investigation series significantly renewed the genre of police series, and settled Scandinavian drama as a global brand. “Nordic Noir” is still a winning formula today: launched in October 2017 on the first Norwegian public broadcaster NRK1, Monster doubled the channel’s market share in the Young Adults target. Set far up in the Northern hemisphere, in a world where nature and humans are merciless, this series will try to seduce Australian and American viewers, as it will be broadcast in both countries next year.

However, if Scandinavian screenwriters are still mastering in crime drama, they are today exploring new fictional genres. When comparing keywords used on our NoTa service, which detects all original Entertainment, Fiction and Factual programming on TV and online platforms in more than 45 key territories, to describe Scandinavian series launched in 2014 versus 2017, it appears that traditional Nordic noir narratives are decreasing for the benefit of historic dramas or comedies.

Period dramas have proven to be successful in rising audience shares in Scandinavia.

Mercur, a Danish and Swedish co-production, tells the true story of the rock and roll radio station Radio Mercur. Its first episode, broadcast on TV2 Charlie in Denmark, multiplied the channel average by 5. The Swedish series The Restaurant (Vår tid är nu), set up right after World War II in a family-run restaurant, was also one of this fall remarkable success. Broadcast on Sweden’s best performing channel SVT1, the premiere episode reached a market share of 47.2%, almost 20 points above the prime time average.

Scandinavian channels efforts to explore new narratives do not stop with drama.

Scandinavian channels are expanding their comedy offer to attract younger audiences. Local comedies are now broadcast in prime time, on main channels, and this is quite new. Broadcast in Norway on NRK1, Presten follows a radio star that decides to quit his popular radio programme and starts a meaningful life as a priest. It improved the channel’s market share in Individuals 15-24 by 80%.

Furthermore, Scandinavian comedies are also travelling internationally, even if not the same way dramas do. Indeed, as humor is something very specific to a certain culture, comedies tend to be adapted more than exported as finished programs. Emblematic of Scandinavian comedies success, the Norwegian Skam, launched in September 2015, will be adapted in the USA on Facebook Watch and on one of the France Télévisions channels in France. The Finnish dramedy Splitting Up Together was already successfully adapted in Belgium, and an American version is about to premiere on ABC.

Norway, Denmark, Finland and Sweden are very dynamic regions in terms of scripted content. Main channels are producing and offering more and more local content, often able to cross national boundaries to seduce foreign audiences. First led by the “Nordic Noir” trend, Scandinavian series are today successfully diversifying beyond the genre. Crime series remain key in the Nordic scripted landscape, but new narratives are emerging and attracting viewers, attesting of an increasing creativity and a new potential in these territories.
