The Italian antitrust authority has cleared Sky Italia of abusing its dominant position via the acquisition of UEFA Champions League and FIFA World Cup TV rights.The AGCM said that exclusive rights to the Champions League for 2012-15 were awarded through a competitive process and that Sky had subsequently agreed to sub-license the rights to the next two competitions to rival Mediaset, meaning that the games would be available on pay TV both on the satellite platform and on digital-terrestrial TV.It said there was no reason at present to doubt that the pair would strike a deal for sub-licensing of the 2014-15 tournament as well.The regulator noted in the case of the World Cup that the main matches would be aired on free-to-air channels, as guaranteed by a EU directive.The ruling followed a complaint filed by Mediaset in 2010.
BBC Worldwide’s Insights team is partnering with digital media startup CrowdEmotion to gauge how viewers react and behave towards BBC TV shows. CrowdEmotion, which uses facial coding web cams to capture emotions, was one of the six startups to secure backing from BBCWW this year as part of its Labs scheme.The new business partnership has seen BBCWW start a pilot scheme with 200 participants in the UK, which will use CrowdEmotion’s facial expression technology to measure happiness, surprise, anger, fear, disgust and sadness.A second wave of research will take place in Russia and Australia, followed by a third set of studies in six other international markets, with further monthly global research studies also in the pipeline, according to Worldwide.“This is the first study of its kind for BBC Worldwide to measure people’s emotional responses to programmes using a technology-led, neuroscience approach,” said BBC Worldwide Insight executive vice-president, David Boyle.“CrowdEmotion’s ability to capture, record and quantify our audience’s emotional attachment and engagement to our TV shows, places BBC Worldwide at the forefront of global audience research and ultimately determines what our fans love to watch.”CrowdEmotion were one of six firms to be picked by BBCWW to be part of its Labs starup scheme, which is now in its third year. The idea is to offer new companies guidance from industry experts and mentors from around the BBC, securing commercial partnerships without taking an equity state in the companies.
