Home will upend the unitary App Store model and end Apple’s smartphone OS dominance.

In March, ABC released a promo asking viewers to “save” its critically adored but low rated “Happy Endings.” It’s nothing new for show creators and stars to send fans pleas for help over their own personal avenues, but does this strategy remain an effective way to drive engagement when coming from a show’s network itself?
Yes
We’re in the Kickstarter era and fans love to be called on to pitch in and help.
No
A network admitting a show is struggling could be dispiriting to fans, and create apathy.
Depends
This was a great strategy for a self-deprecating show like “Happy Endings,” but wouldn’t work for just any series.

TV is officially going to the dogs with DIRECTV’s announcement this week that it will begin carrying DogTV on August 1, a channel designed specifically for canines. DogTV will also offer limited advertising aimed at humans, but will advertisers come calling to a channel for dogs?
Yes
Many people treat their dogs like children and will watch DogTV as a family.
No
People will turn on DogTV and leave the house. There is no ROI there for advertisers.
