Survivor, an international popular format, follows a group of
people that are put through physical and mental challenges in order to
survive on a deserted island. It is broadcast by Telecinco, a channel
owned by Mediaset España, the leading private television group in Spain
in terms of audience share and advertising sales, and one of the most
profitable television groups in Europe.
Through the Mitele TV app, viewers follow their favorite contestants and
get daily summaries of the island's events, pictures and exclusive
content. Once a week, a live primetime program takes place in the
studio, during which viewers vote for their favorite contestant. Based
on the On screen graphics system integration, voting data is delivered
back to the studio, triggering LED display on the set to feature viewer
picture profiles, according to their vote.
Voting, and other broadcaster second screen activities, are accessible
to viewers on the Mitele TV app via the primetime social Feed. This
innovative product by Applicaster offers an aggregated timeline of all
show-associated broadcaster activities combined with social elements,
such as viewer comments, photos, tweets,replies and more.
"The introduction of the live votes and social interactivity for Survivor
creates a huge hype and excitement around the show in general, and
around the primetime programs in particular," said Ana Bueno, Director
of Multimedia Content, Mediaset España.
"We are proud to be one of the first TV players who open up the studio
for visual audience feedback and offer viewers intuitive means for
interacting with our programs and share their experience with their
friends," she concluded.
"Mediaset Espana is an innovative player in the TV industry which found
more than one way to connect the dots between TV content and the
audience," said Laura Tapias, VP of Spain and LATAM at Applicaster.
"This interactive TV experience offered to Survivor viewers is
magnified by the immediate feedback they receive in the form of votes
coming to life on the TV screen, tightening their emotional connection
to the show," Tapias added.
