// Langste TV programma ooit

[this post is Dutch only]

Mensen die bang zijn voor de komkommertijd; ik heb een livestream van 134 uur voor je in de aanbieding.

NRK, de Noorse Publieke omroep, had afgelopen week de primeur om het langste tv-programma ooit uit te zenden.
Wat was het idee? Noren konden vijf dagen lang, non-stop, de 2.500 kilometer lange reis van het cruiseschip MS Nord-Norge van begin tot eind volgen. Resultaat was overweldigend: de helft van alle Noren (2,5 miljoen) volgenden de door 11 camera’s vastgelegde reis.
De stream kan in zijn geheel on demand worden teruggekeken. Dus wat let je?
(Bij ‘nedlasting’ kan je overigens ook gratis en legaal alle uitzendingen torrenten)

// Shazam goes TV

[this post is English only]

The last couple of months big TV networks all over the world are doing several pilots trying to find ways to integrate social media into their regular TV programs. (for example Al Jazeera).

And yes, we have another nice example:
A month ago NBC Universal made a deal to integrate Shazam into their cable networks (press release).
First for those who are not familiar with Shazam:
Shazam is a mobile application that listens and identifies songs for you. So if you are in a club, you just switch on Shazam and this app shows all the information about the current song you are hearing. You even can buy the track on the fly.

Last Weekend Spike TV and Oxygen launched their Shazam app in one of their shows. The idea is that you have Shazamable moments during programs which delivers extra footage or exclusive audio to viewers.

David Jones, VP Marketing Shazam, said: “Shazam for TV is revolutionizing the way we watch TV – no new gadgets or equipment required, just a smartphone with the Shazam App makes watching TV a more fun and interactive experience.”

The big question with those pilots is, are consumers willing to download several apps for several tv occasions. I don’t think so.
But I believe this can really succeed as a big chunck of smartphone users have Shazam already on their device. And if you stay in line with the experience of Shazam, discovering music, it really can add up.
+like.
