Gashes, wounds and Christmas sweaters: DDB dips toe into fashion design for Fargo promo

For the launch of the second season of hit TV series Fargo, Neon has launched a hilarious campaign that brings together Mid-Western sweater fashion with the largely unexpected horrors that take place in the show. Called Fargo Woollens, the campaign features a collection of actual sweaters, which have been made specifically for promotional push. The products stay true to the ugly sweater style that is often celebrated by American families during Christmas time, but the design also feature gory elements in the shape of gashes, knife wounds and cleaver assaults.

24 hour tired people: Sky TV promotes its round the clock RWC 2015 coverage

Many of us have experienced late night/early morning sports games, either first hand or by association: the blue light flooding in from under the bedroom door, the sound of a crowd cheering, an enthusiastic commentator, and finally, the more familiar yell of a relative or friend who pretends the television screen is some kind portal by where the little men or women running on the field can hear them. Though these sounds should be obnoxious to anyone trying to sleep, much like heavy rain on a tin roof they are weirdly soothing. Sky TV has channelled this nocturnal nature of dedicated sports fans with its latest ads, made with DDB and Robber’s Dog, which promote its round the clock sports coverage of the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2015, and the lengths fans go to, to make sure they’re supporting their team.

Sky aims to woo fan boys and girls with launch of The Zone

Despite announcing record profits at last week's AGM, Sky does not appear content to rest on its laurels. The broadcaster recently unveiled Neon, its subscription video on demand (SVOD) offering, and from today it will be screening a new channel called The Zone. Designed to fill the sci-fi void in Sky's programming, the new channel will screen horror, fantasy, science-fiction, cult and superhero shows via Sky and SkyGo.

Orcon's FreeMyRugby petition won't cause riots, but it draws attention to the growing trend of sports broadcast bidding wars

Orcon is taking a leaf out of the ‘Politician’s Handbook’ by attempting to mobilise the Kiwi masses through a petition, which aims to break Sky’s hold on the broadcasting rights for live rugby games. The petition is hosted at a microsite called FreeMyRugby.co.nz and draws attention to the fact that only New Zealanders with a Sky subscription—available for $74.75 a month on a Sky basic and sport package—are in a position to watch the All Blacks play live. And while sharing this common knowledge is unlikely to cause a riot, it does draw attention to how the media landscape is changing and how this might continue to impact Sky's hold sports broadcasts.

Bad PR, good numbers: TVNZ announces big half-yearly profit increase, takes a bath on Igloo

TVNZ is having a fairly rough time of it at the moment in terms of PR, with the Shane Taurima saga, the fake abuse own goal, Brian Edwards' attack on Fair Go and, adding salt into its wounds, even a bit of a slap from overseas with calls from an ex-head of TVNZ telling the BBC not to replicate New Zealand's public broadcasting model. But, according to its half-year earnings report, the finances aren't looking too bad at the state broadcaster, with a net profit after tax of $20.8 million for the six months to 31 December, up 47 percent on the same period last year. Plus: TVNZ's disappearing Igloo?
