Cheddar Now on All US OTT Streaming Services Preps Primetime Programming Block

first_img Popular on Variety Cheddar’s linear streams also are available on Comcast’s X1 set-top boxes and on DirecTV’s internet-connected set-tops. It also sends out a live feed via Twitter and sells direct-to-consumer subscriptions (for $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year). All told, Cheddar reaches roughly 30 million homes through its deals, according to Steinberg.As part of Cheddar’s push to bring in more revenue with the expanded distribution footprint, the company will launch a block of primetime programming next month, Steinberg said. The weeknight lineup will include “reality-business programming” and a game show, he said. That will extend Cheddar Business’s original content wheel past its current live coverage from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. ET (after which the channel replays highlights from the day).Steinberg declined to provide details of its agreement with Sony for PS Vue or other distributors, but he said unlike other cable TV network startups, “We’ve never written a check for carriage.”The main revenue stream for Cheddar, which calls itself a purveyor of “post-cable networks,” is from advertising and branded content. Last year, the company generated $27 million in revenue (up from $11 million from 2017) and Steinberg is shooting to nearly double sales in 2019.“We are in these premium TV environments, next to CNN, CNBC and Fox News Channel,” he said. “It’s completely work-safe, high-value inventory delivered to young, affluent audiences.” Cheddar’s sponsors and advertisers have included Chase, Goldman Sachs, TradeStation and Fidelity, and Steinberg sees an opportunity to expand beyond the endemic financial-services category.To date, Cheddar has raised $54 million in funding from investors including Amazon, AT&T, Comcast Ventures, Raine Ventures, Liberty Global, Goldman Sachs, Altice USA, the New York Stock Exchange, Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video, and Lightspeed Venture Partners.Steinberg is projecting the company to be profitable in the fourth quarter of 2019 “and stay profitable,” he said. “I’m obsessed with keeping the company frugal. You should see our offices.” The company has spent $10 million on acquisitions, including buying RateMyProfessors.com from Viacom last year, and currently has $30 million in the bank between cash and accounts receivable, according to Steinberg. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Cheddar’s linear programming is carried on Dish’s Sling TV, AT&T’s DirecTV Now, Hulu With Live TV, YouTube TV, FuboTV and Philo, and went live on PlayStation Vue on Wednesday (Jan. 23).“We made it our goal to be on every one of these services – which is the future of television,” said Jon Steinberg, founder and CEO of Cheddar. That said, going the OTT route is an easier path: Steinberg acknowledged that “it’s virtually impossible to get traditional channels launched” on traditional pay-TV platforms. Cheddar now has 180 employees, most of whom are based in New York. Cheddar Business broadcasts primarily from the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange, covering business and tech news. Cheddar News covers general and headline news. On PlayStation Vue, Cheddar Business is available in the Access package, available to all subscribers. Cheddar News is available to all subscribers with the Elite and Ultra packages.Interest has surged among traditional media companies in next-generation streaming video plays: witness Viacom’s $340 million cash deal for Pluto TV, a free, ad-supported streaming service.Asked what Cheddar’s exit strategy is, Steinberg said, “I don’t think our exit is going to be someone writing a giant check for us.” He added, “I have no interest in merging with other digital companies.” On the other hand, it would make sense for Cheddar to be part of a local TV station group, or to combine with the news operations of a larger media company if those were to be spun out, Steinberg said.last_img read more

BlacKkKlansman Writers Tapped for CollegeHoops Drama Series at Gunpowder Sky

first_img Popular on Variety Charlie Wachtel and David Rabinowitz, co-writers of Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman,” have teamed with studio Gunpowder & Sky to develop “Madness,” a drama series about the world of college basketball.“Madness” follows the corrupt inner workings of a prestigious college basketball program through the eyes of its new assistant coach, and the repercussions the team faces after their head coach makes a bad deal. The creators describe it as having a “House of Cards” feel.“In ‘BlacKkKlansman,’ Charlie and David were able to tap into the current national zeitgeist through the artful telling of an unknown story from American history,” said Cody Zwieg, SVP of production and development at Gunpowder & Sky. “They are treasure hunters of sorts, seeking out and spinning the undiscovered stories that resonate with the social climate of today.” “BlacKkKlansman” received six Oscar nominations including for best picture, director, and adapted screenplay.Rabinowitz and Wachtel produced a short film based on the “Madness” concept in 2014 (although G&S wasn’t involved with that). With the “Madness” series, the screenwriting duo say they’re telling a sports story told through the lens of a crime drama.“In our world of college sports, there are rules to follow, a hierarchy of power, and real consequences for failure,” Wachtel said. Added Rabinowitz, “With ‘Madness’ we hope to shine a light on the dark underbelly of college athletics, from the morally compromised coaches to the conflicted players. It’s a story of opportunity, choices, and greed.”Rabinowitz and Wachtel are repped by WME and Jennifer Levy of Behr Abramson Levy. They also have a spy series — about the secret war between Fidel Castro’s Cuba, the CIA, the KGB and the mafia — in development with French production companies Païva Films and Mirador Pictures.Gunpowder & Sky’s deal with Rabinowitz and Wachtel follows other recent partnerships, including with Zelda Williams to adapt her short film, “Shrimp,” into a series, along with acquiring the rights to YA novel “Ms. Bixby’s Last Day” to adapt it into a feature film with Walden Media. Most recently, Gunpowder & Sky partnered with Tigerlily Productions to develop a new comedy series “Assets.”Based in L.A., Gunpowder & Sky was founded by veteran TV industry execs Van Toffler and Floris Bauer, with investments from the Chernin Group and AT&T.Pictured above: David Rabinowitz (l.), Charlie Wachtelcenter_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

KMCs Central Store to repair condemned vehicles machinery

first_imgKolkata: The Central Store of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has been given the additional responsibility of repairing condemned vehicles or machines that were once used by various departments of the civic body. Mayor Firhad Hakim has recently handed over this responsibility to the Central Store with the Entally workshop unable to meet deadlines because of small number of employees who are unable to take up such repair works. The Central Store is involved in the purchase of equipment needed by various departments from time to time. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe defunct machines or vehicles like handcarts are dumped in the “condemned store”. Recently, employees at the Central Store have used parts of such discarded handcarts to come up with five new ones. Such handcarts are used by the Solid Waste Management department of the KMC. “These vehicles will be soon handed over to Entally workshop for use. We are also floating tender for manufacturing more such handcarts from those abandoned defunct vehicles,” a senior KMC official said. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseIt may be mentioned that after taking over as Mayor, Hakim had initially kept the charge of Central Store with him but later due to work pressure, he handed over its charge to Member Mayor-in-Council (Drainage) Tarak Singh. It was Singh who obtained the nod of the Mayor in taking up repair of the condemned articles in the Central Store. The Central Store has also put into use five fire extinguishers out of 250 that were lying abandoned in the KMC’s condemned store. Tenders will be floated for refilling of the rest of the fire extinguishers. In fact, the KMC has planned that the vehicles on wheels that will be handed over to the affected garment traders in Gariahat will also be made by the Store employees. The Central Store has also restored a battery-operated cart for waste disposal out of a good number of such vehicles that were lying defunct at the condemned store. “If this job is carried out with seriousness then the KMC will be able to save its expenditure to a reasonable extent,” the official said. It has been decided that 16 CCTV cameras will be installed in the Store for security of the various equipment. The condemned store will also have CCTVs. The surveillance infrastructure will be linked with the room of Singh as well as the manager of the Central Store. The KMC also has plans of setting up a modern laboratory at the Store for assessing the quality of new equipment that are purchased.last_img read more
