  • AMC Networks finished 2012 on strong ad note
    AMC Networks in the fourth quarter generated a 16% rise in ad revenue to $157 million on total revenue of $339 million, a 10.8% increase compared with the same period in 2011. Distribution revenue grew by 6.8% to $182 million. However, AMC saw its profit for the quarter fall by nearly half to $15.2 million due to DISH Network's temporarily dropping its channels because of a disagreement related to AMC's VOOM HD network.

  • YouTube gives users choice of pre-roll ad or commercial breaks
    YouTube is in the testing phase of pre-roll ads that are similar to those on Hulu. Users can choose between having a longer ad of 30 seconds to two minutes before the video or several short ad breaks during a clip. If no choice is made, the clip will be shown with commercial breaks tied to its running time. TheNextWeb.com (2/26) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Nick offers new slate geared toward "post-millennials"
    Nickelodeon, with its ratings recovering among viewers aged 2 to 11, is putting a special focus on "post-millennials" -- those born after 2005 -- via new animated and live-action comedy programming, educational preschool shows and content for new platforms, executives said at its upfront. Among Nick's new animated offerings will be 26-episode runs of Ubisoft's "Rabbids" as well as "Monsters vs. Aliens," in partnership with DreamWorks Animation. Live-action series will include three family sitcoms and "Nick Studio 10," a live comedy that was originally developed for its smartphone-tablet application.

  • W+K warns of "liquid gold diggers" in Velveeta twist
    Wieden+Kennedy's latest work for Kraft Food Group's Velveeta takes an "edgier" tone in addressing modern moms, writes Karlene Lukovitz. Spots invent a category of men called "liquid gold diggers" who will suck up to women just for their Velveeta dishes. The "liquid gold" tagline is playing off a theme the agency invented last year for Velveeta Shells & Cheese and Cheesy Skillets.
