Statements from Picnic06; keynote 6

Music, Entertainment and Community

* Simon Guild, President and Chief Executive, MTV Networks Europe
(United Kingdom)

less than 10% cares about technology
but they don’t consider mobile phones etc as technology

start with what we are

M for music
TV for unique original content

Build a portfolio of channels (both analog and digital)

The forth brand element; how do we build an active relationship with
the audience

Product stretch to sattelite, to events, to interactive

mtv.co.uk/load

mobile is an imediately medium

huh? internet 2.0 is integrating video (mtv overdrive)

getting your stuff on television is still a sexy idea
Channel launch; Flux; user gerated content with the intention to play
on a channel on tv
mtvflux.co.uk

My conclusion; mtv is no frontrunner anymore, however probably a good
marketeer…
