Amazon explores TV project KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Share Online retailer Amazon has made a move into television, with the American firm working on a project to provide unlimited shows over the internet for paying subscribers. Reports last night put NBC Universal, Time Warner and Viacom in the frame as potential partners. The new service would compete with firms like Netflix that allow subscribers to stream TV shows and rent films. The Wall Street Journal said Amazon might tie-in the new project with its Prime service, which guarantees users faster delivery for an annual fee. whatsapp Tuesday 31 August 2010 9:30 pm More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com

It said a further increase in the supply of properties being placed on the market had edged prices lower but at the same time had increased sales expectations.The RICS UK Housing Market survey, released today, showed 32 per cent more chartered surveyors reporting prices falling rather than rising in August – the biggest negative reading since May 2009. Regionally, surveyors are now reporting prices slipping in all regions apart from Scotland. Expectations for house prices over the next three months continue to deteriorate, with 38 per cent more expecting prices to fall rather than rise. RICS spokesperson, Jeremy Leaf said the latest survey suggested house prices may be slipping but surveyors believed sales could begin to pick up as a result. “That said, there can be little doubt that the restrictive attitude to the provision of mortgage finance will continue to limit transaction activity in the market,” he added.

Tags: Online Gambling Casino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 5th May 2020 | By Josephine Watson For many businesses, a pivot from a mixed B2C and B2B model to an entirely B2B focus could appear a cumbersome task, with a great deal of restructuring and reorganisation involved. Ben Clemes, CCO at GiG talks through their transition Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Tech & innovation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Ben oversees the commercial team, with responsibility for commercial agreements with our various suppliers and pricing models for GiG’s ever expanding product range. His background is casino management, including MGM in Las Vegas, and head of casino operations for Nordic Gaming Group. Ben joined GiG in 2013, as head of casino operations and co-founder of Guts, and progressed to managing director of iGaming Cloud (a vertical in GiG now called GiG Core) in 2016, and was announced as CCO in late 2017.For many businesses, a pivot from a mixed B2C and B2B model to an entirely B2B focus could appear a cumbersome task, with a great deal of restructuring and reorganisation involved.For Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), however, it has been a smooth transition.“We really haven’t had to make many changes from an organisational point of view,” Ben Clemes, chief commercial officer at GiG says. “We’ve always been set up in three primary divisions, which would be the platform services – including managed services – and then B2C operations and our media agency services.“They’re all quite decentralised. So based off of that structure, the changes have been minor from an organisational point of view. We’ve always been decentralised in roles and functionalities within the organisation.”The new structure – Clemes says – instead allows GiG to focus more than ever on the goal it has always had: end-to-end customer delivery.“The focus at GiG has always been on end-to-end customer delivery and I think this is reinforced even more now that we’re a full B2B organisation,” Clemes continues. “Now everyone here is focused on B2B rather than any roles that sat between B2C and B2B. Everybody’s excited about having a clearer focus for the group.”The ease of this transition stands out even more when one remembers that a little over five years ago, GiG was an entirely B2C-focused business.“We launched as a purely B2C brand with Guts.com, but we wanted to own our own technology and way forward so we decided to build our own platform in 2014 and we built what is now GiG core in-house from the first line of code,” Clemes says. “That was the first real development towards where we are today.”From there the business stretched out, into both media and new technology to strengthen its offering to partners.“The next development along the way was when we started focusing more on the media side of things. We did a lot of mergers and acquisitions over the years and now we’re one of the largest media partners in the Nordics.“Our media agency side of the business compliments our platform solution, allowing operators to have peace of mind that they don’t have to have services such as SEO, affiliation and CRM in place from the start. We can offer this to them under our managed services.“And then over the years we’ve also diversified into building other products in house such as GiG Sports, GiG Comply – our marketing compliance platform – and GiG data, which is essentially a real-time data platform.” To build and rebuildContinued building and rebuilding has been a core theme of the years spent building its B2B product, with each new piece of technology intended to function both on its own and together with the rest of GiG’s offering.“We’ve always had the vision that we will continue to rebuild and rebuild,”Clemes said. “At ICE this year we launched GiG Data, our real-time data platform and GiG Logic, our igaming logic engine, which allows operators to build real-time rules without the need for code. Both of these compliment each other in delivering a real-time data solution that enhances business intelligence and sustainability.Although these products give a major boost to GiG’s offering right as the business moves to a purely B2B focus, Clemes said that was good fortune more than a deliberate decision. With many products taking as much as 18 months to design, the plans for GiG Data and GiG Logic were conceived of before any idea to sell GiG’s B2C arm was hatched.“Both of those have been in development for quite some time,” Clemes says. They’re also both part of our strategy to have an agnostic product offering. Before, everything was quite tightly coupled but now data and logic are completely agnostic.”That feature has been a conscious choice on GiG’s part, and one Clemes says allows operators to perfectly tweak their product to best suit their target audience, brand or the regulatory situation in a given market.“The strategy going forward is that we want to be as agnostic as possible,” Clemes continues. “We realise now that markets around the world are opening up with regulation, which is super exciting for us as the retail people who want to go online are the market we’re targeting.“Essentially the approach we’ve taken is that all of these products can be taken together as one or sold agnostically from one another. Essentially we wanted to make it so that you don’t have to be a core customer to take advantage of our data, for example.“The agnostic approach is allowing us to enter new markets without forcing partners to take the standardised offering.” Building products people needClemes says the smooth transition means GiG will continue to work in the same way it always has: by identifying a need and working to solve it.“Going forward, we always want to keep being innovative and ensure we’re developing products people need,” he says. “GiG Comply came out of ensuring that advertising is compliant and that your marketing partners are complying to ASA standards. We’re investing a lot into GiG cloud, our own cloud hosting system, too, which will not only reduce operational costs but also increase performance.”“So as we continue to evolve, we’ll enhance the products that we have, making them better.Overall, most of that’s a strategy that’s always been in place. It’s just going to be even more important in the future.” A smooth transition Email Address

Finally there are the foreign contingent. Playing fly-half in the win over Montauban was New Zealander Ash Moeke, who spent last season playing for Southland in the ITM Cup, while the pack contained a Spanish prop, two South Africans and Manoa Vosawai, the Fiji-born flanker who won 17 caps for Italy and spent the last two seasons at Cardiff Blues.Power player: Manoa Vosawai, here in action for Italy, now plays for Vannes. Photo: Getty ImagesThe emphasis, however, is developing local talent. In an interview with a local paper in 2014, club president François Cardron proudly explained that Vannes’ minis section had more than 300 members and that their youth sides had swept the board in the Brittany championships in 2012-13.Cardon said at the time that he believed Vannes could survive as Brittany’s professional club and in the process become the only club in the northern half of France outside the Paris area to play in one of the top two divisions of French rugby.Cardron has been instrumental in making Vannes financially stable, not an attribute one can say about all the clubs in the ProD2. On Friday evening he hosted 240 corporate guests for the match against Montauban, of which 70 were new partners, and the estimated budget for Vannes this season is €4.55m. That’s some way down on the likes of Oyonnax (€11.2) and Perpignan (€9.45m), but it’s still a respectable figure, thanks to their €1.85m slice of the broadcasting rights and the deals cut by Cardron during the summer with Brittany businesses. The suits at LNR must have purred on Friday night when they heard the result from Vannes. The ProD2 new boys had beaten Montauban 23-20 and victory had come in front of more than 7,000 spectators.That’s more than turned up at Beziers, Biarritz or Dax, three southern clubs steeped in history but whose attendances are in decline after sustained periods of failure. What a difference in the north-west of France, an area more traditionally associated with football.In France, Brittany is to football what the Basque country is to rugby. The region lives and breathes the sport, boasting four of the 20 clubs in the French first division – Rennes, Guingamp, Nantes and Lorient. But in recent years the LNR and FFR have woken up to the vast potential of an area peopled with hardy souls known for their independence and fierceness of character.Soccer mad: Rennes and Nantes are two of the four Brittany-based football clubs in the French top flight. Photo: Getty ImagesNantes hosted three pool matches during the 2007 World Cup, the semi-finals of the 2012-13 Top 14 were also held in the city and Racing 92 occasionally relocate there in a bid to broaden their fan base.But Brittany still lacked a professional club, a team into which this growing love for the game could be channelled. That was until Vannes beat Massy in last season’s Federale 1 play-off. Nearly 10,000 fans crammed into the Stade de la Rabine on that occasion – not a bad figure considering Vannes’ population is 53,000.Vannes venue: France take on England in the 2016 Women’s Six Nations in Vannes. Photo: Getty ImagesThe squad this season is a mix of local lads – youngsters such as 23-year-old wing Gwenaël Duplenne, who scored 13 tries in 18 matches last season, and veterans like 35-year-old flanker Francois Bourdrel, who’s been with the club for ten years. Then there are the French players released from the Top 14 like Julien Côme, who played three matches for Racing 92, and lock Etienne Delangle, who never managed to make it with Clermont. “The success of Vannes isn’t just that of a town,” said Cardron recently. “But of the whole region.”For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.
