New Viacom Study Finds Most Younger Viewers Actually Like On-Screen Channel Logos

A heavy majority of viewers aged 12 to 34 prefer watching programming with on-screen channel logos (BUGS/DOGS), as opposed to programming on plain, logo-free screens, new research from Viacom’s Global Consumer Insights unit has found!

The findings counter the widespread assumption that streaming services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu are eroding traditional TV brands, with millennials and Gen Y viewers eager to disregard the channel identity as they seek out what to watch. Many stakeholders in TV have also predicted a future in which the brands of individual shows are superior to the 20th century concept of a network brand filter.

With the help from a research agency, Viacom conducted a blind test of nearly 3,000 12-34s in the U.S. and UK, presenting them with video the company told them was part of a new and yet-unnamed on-demand platform. The company said the setup “had the look, feel and functionality of a regular service featuring premium content from across the media landscape.” Half of the survey respondents seeing logos and half the logo-free images, and then both groups were shown both versions side by side. In the end, 84% of respondents preferred the programming with logos.

The notion of channels serving as curators of programming is embedded in Viacom’s current overall strategy as it continues to pursue a turnaround. Since taking the helm of the company two years ago, CEO Bob Bakish has led a re-orientation of the company’s efforts around six flagship networks — BET, MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr. and the Paramount Channel — with the theory that it makes sense to focus company resources on core brands.

Exploring the viewers’ reasons for preferring logos, Viacom’s study found that viewers in favor of logos thought the interface was better designed, more innovative, had better discovery and had “more current, desirable content.”

The difference was especially notable among 12-to-17-year-olds, the company said. As a group, 74% of 12-17s favored the platform with channel logos, versus 66% who viewed the platform without channel logos.

Are you in favor of on-screen channel logos? Sound off in the comments below!

Nickelodeon Brazil to Premiere 'The Bureau of Magical Things' on Monday 7th January 2019


Nickelodeon Brazil (Brasil) will debut the enchanting new live-action series The Bureau of Magical Things, created by Australian television producer Jonathan M. Shiff (H2O: Just Add Water), on Monday 7th January 2019 at 7:00pm! Following launch, new episodes of The Bureau of Magical Things, locally titled O Clube das Coisas Mágicas in Brazil, will continue to air regularly Mondays at 7:00pm on Nickelodeon Brasil.

Filmed in Brisbane and the Gold Coast of Australia, The Bureau of Magical Things combines magic, mystery, and a unique mythology to tell the story of Kyra, an ordinary teenage girl who is caught in a clash between an elf and a fairy then becomes magically transformed. As a “Tri-ling”—part human, part fairy, and part elf—Kyra teams with a group of magical teenagers and learns to use her newfound powers to keep the human (insan) world safe from the surprising, funny, and sometimes dangerous effects of magical chaos. But when these young guardians uncover a threat, humans, fairies, and elves must unite to save both their worlds!

The series stars Kimie Tsukakoshi (The Family Law) as Kyra, a confident teenage Tri-ling who exhibits powers of both fairies (Peri) and elves; Mia Milnes as Lily, an optimistic and sweet fairy; Elizabeth Cullen as Imogen, a headstrong and ambitious elf; Julian Cullen as Darra, Imogen’s charming hipster elf brother; Rainbow Wedell (Terra Nova) as Ruksy, an orderly fairy and teacher’s pet; Jamie Carter (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Peter, Kyra’s longtime classmate and science fiction lover; Christopher Sommers (Hunters) as Professor Maxwell, a witty half-elf-half-human in charge of the local Magic School; Melanie Zanetti (The Leisure Class) as Orla, an elf agent working for the Department of Magical Intervention (DMI); and Nicholas Bell (I, Frankenstein) as Sean, director of the DMI and Lily’s father.

In the first half-hour launch episode, “A Magical Mishap,” ordinary teenager Kyra gets zapped when she touches a book that is the subject of a magical tug‐of‐war between a fairy, Lily, and an elf, Imogen. When Kyra wakes the next day, she can see and perform magic as a newfound Tri‐ling – part‐human, part‐fairy and part‐elf.

Nickelodeon has acquired the global rights to The Bureau of Magical Things (20x30'). The series made its debut on Nick USA on Monday 8th October 2018, followed by its debut on Nickelodeon in the UK and Ireland on Monday 5th November 2018, and is currently rolling out globally across Nickelodeon's channels and branded blocks in 170+ countries and territories.

The Bureau of Magical Things introduces a captivating fantasy world while promoting real world concepts like individuality, diversity and acceptance,” says Layla Lewis, Senior Vice President, Global Acquisitions and Content Partnerships for Nickelodeon. “We think kids everywhere will find something relatable in these characters’ journeys to finding their true selves, while learning to embrace and accept what makes them different.”

Season one of The Bureau of Magical Things is produced by Jonathan M. Shiff Productions, financed with the support of Screen Australia, the Queensland Government through Screen Queensland and the City of Gold Coast and will be globally distributed by ZDF Enterprises. The show was originally broadcast in Australia on Channel Eleven.
