ESPN is further boosting its major sports coverage by producing a raft of extra material for golf enthusiasts at the US Open. And the outlet will be doing the same during the British Open, along with Wimbledon, the US Open and Australian Open for tennis. The network is employing a special team during the tournament (including some not normally involved in golf coverage) to supplement the main ESPN broadcasts with featured group and hole coverage, hole flyovers, shot tracking and more. Some of the extra goodies will appear on ESPN3, DIRECTV, and USOpen.com. All that means you might need to drag that extra TV out of the spare room, and possibly your Xbox, laptop or tablet. Who says watching sports reduces your attention span?

BT’s got much more important things to do than fill in the gaps in its fiber broadband protection, like blowing around & pound; 10 million ($ 15 million) on buying ESPN’s UK and Ireland stations from Disney.

Generally speaking, BT just understands ways to brighten our Mondays.

You may not be able to share those retrograde pictures of your dinner direct to your Twitter worshippers any more, but at least you can commemorate Kobe’s latest slammed-dunkings. ESPN has signed a deal with video sharing service Ooyala that’ll see highlight videos embedded inside tweets so you never have to leave the warm embrace of your live feed. Ooyala’s also offering its SDK for others to follow suit, and while the press release below talks of “monetization” and “optimized engagement,” we prefer to think the pair are doing it to fill that Instagram-shaped hole in our tweets.
Ooyala Delivers In-Stream Video Viewing on Twitter
Twitter Video Card solution creates new ways to discover, share and monetize video; ESPN first to adopt
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ooyala, the leading video streaming and monetization platform provider, today announced that it has developed a Twitter Video Card solution, in close collaboration with Twitter, that enables Ooyala customers a turnkey solution to embed videos directly into their Twitter streams for instant playback. Previously, users were only able to include a link to a video in Twitter. This solution inserts a thumbnail of the video directly into the stream so followers can click and play directly without leaving Twitter.
“Consumers today are at the intersection of social and mobile, and demanding easy and fast access to video content. Our ability to deliver video directly into the Twitter stream is a major step forward for publishers who want to drive viewer engagement in real-time.”
First deployed by sports broadcaster ESPN to better serve its 24 million online video viewers, Ooyala’s Twitter Card solution provides media companies, broadcasters and brands a new way to distribute and monetize video content delivered via Twitter across desktops and mobile devices. In addition, the solution can increase the discovery and sharing of video content and optimize engagement through social and mobile by eliminating the barriers to view content directly on Twitter.
“Twitter is a growing source of inbound referral traffic and outbound content distribution for online media publishers and broadcasters,” said Jonathan Wilner, senior director, business product management at Ooyala. “Consumers today are at the intersection of social and mobile, and demanding easy and fast access to video content. Our ability to deliver video directly into the Twitter stream is a major step forward for publishers who want to drive viewer engagement in real-time.”
As a result of the close collaboration with Twitter, the Ooyala solution has been certified by Twitter, meaning customers can quickly and easily integrate and distribute video content directly into their streams across all platforms — including desktop, mobile web and native smartphone and tablet apps for both iOS and Android — and trust that the player will work seamlessly within Twitter. The solution works via an Ooyala Twitter SDK and automatic hosting for Twitter Cards. The turnkey API from Ooyala automatically generates the necessary Twitter tags so that a video can be inserted onto a video landing page to enable Twitter Cards.
Powerful Solution when paired with Discovery
The technology works seamlessly with Ooyala Discovery, which enables video content providers to increase view-related revenue by algorithmically recommending highly relevant content within the Ooyala Player. For example, if a user watches a highlight from a football game within the ESPN Twitter stream, they could receive a recommendation to also watch highlights from the post-game press conference. Personalized content recommendations can further drive user engagement and monetization for each video share in Twitter.
Opening Revenue Streams
In addition to benefiting consumers, this technology opens up new revenue streams for Ooyala customers. It enables the distribution of ad-supported video content across client-owned and consumer Twitter properties, magnified by sharing tendencies of Twitter users. It also opens the door for video integration into Promoted Tweet advertising campaigns across Twitter.
Customers that take advantage of Ooyala analytics will also have extensive data on the performance of their videos through Twitter Video Cards, in addition to the data they already receive on their websites and/or apps, allowing them to further optimize their video content.
Ooyala delivers personalized video experiences across all screens and is the leader in online video management, publishing, analytics and monetization. Our integrated suite of technologies and services give content owners the power to expand audiences through deep insights that drive increased viewer engagement and revenue from video.
Companies using Ooyala technology include Telstra, ESPN, Pac-12 Enterprises, Miramax, Bloomberg, Telegraph Media Group, Telefonica, The North Face, Rolling Stone, Dell, Sephora and Yahoo! Japan. Headquartered in Mountain View, California, Ooyala has offices in New York City, London, Sydney, Tokyo and Guadalajara, Mexico. The company works with premier reseller and technology partners throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Japan and the Asia-Pacific region. For more information visit www.ooyala.com.

Some soccer leagues around the world have actually currently kicked off the 2012-2013 period, however there’s still some time before the ball officially begins rolling in additional parts of the world– unless, of course, you consider this previous Sunday’s Community Shield. In any type of instance, ESPN appears to have actually prepared itself fairly well for the future footie spell, revealing an all-new ESPNFC landing page and a full set of applications to accompany the fresh site– which will basically be changing exactly what we made use of to recognize as ESPNsoccernet.

Nokia has announced that it’s bringing another title to Lumia phones in its continuing effort to keep its devices differentiated from the rest of the Windows Phone pack. Today it’s ESPN Radio, which joins Nokia Maps, PGA Tour, and (naturally) the official ESPN app as Nokia exclusives. ESPN Radio will have similar features to what it offers on other platforms: 35 different broadcasts, live listening to the World Series and other big games, and offline listening — some of these features $ 4.99 on other platforms. Nokia has exclusives through May of 2013 on some of the above software titles and ESPN Radio presumably falls under the same purview. Nokia says it should be available in the Marketplace today, though as usual with these software…
ESPN had a presence at this CES like no other we’ve witnessed from the sports network and the last of the four letter network’s big events was Top Rank Boxing live from the show floor. The event drew quite a crowd and the 3D quality didn’t disappoint. The crew was using a Sony HDC-P1 camera system with 3D rigs by the Pace Cameron Group all sent through a Sony MVX-8000x production switcher. If you didn’t catch it live on ESPN 3D, we’re sure there will be plenty of opportunities to catch the 3D reruns.

Not sufficiently amped up for the impending release of Amazon’s first tablet? That could very well change as the Seattle-based company’s just made its thousands-strong app pot a little sweeter. After reminding the product-buying populace a few days ago that the newly birthed Kindle Fire is, indeed, a tablet with access to a boatload of Android apps, Bezos and co. are now upping the slate’s ante by announcing the availability of Hulu Plus and ESPN ScoreCenter. It’s an obvious swat at the Nook Tablet’s two greatest lures and could sway indecisive customers back from the brink of Barnes & Noble’s beguiling clutches.

Take that Mark Cuban. Everyone’s favorite HD network owning billionaire called 3D sports DOA after deciding there weren’t many people asking about a 3D Super Bowl, but now ESPN’s 3D network has queued up its second championship of the year, adding the NBA Finals to its previously scheduled slate of regular season and playoff broadcasts. ESPN 3D has been broadcasting around the clock for a few days now (unless you’re watching DirecTV) but while repeats make for easy demo material, if 3D is going to go from an interesting sideshow to an in-demand feature it will take more high profile events like these. If the Mavericks manage to slide past the Lakers or Spurs for a deep playoff run, we’ll check back with our friend Mark to see how he’d watch the game if he didn’t already have a few seats permanently staked out in the arena.
