The road to t-commerce

An Olympian effort illustrates the potential for turning TV into an online shopping portal, but nobody's yet grabbed the wheel.


As millions of U.S. consumers watched athletes compete this summer in the London Olympics, eBay Inc. was trying to cash in and advance the cause of so-called "t-commerce." That's the marketing shorthand for the concept that consumers watching programming on web-enabled TVs and mobile devices will buy via the web products related to the shows they're watching.


In this case, the online marketplace updated its Watch with eBay feature-which launched as an extension to the marketplace's iPad app in November-for the Games. Consumers could sync the app on the tablet in their lap to the events they were watching on TV and buy from eBay's network of sellers the same types of shoes worn by sprinters, posters featuring Olympic athletes and other products associated with the event.

Q&A, Mike Fitzsimmons, CEO of Delivery Agent


It's not your mother's home shopping experience. As the world of television changes, so-called TV commerce might be the next gold rush, and a slew of new platforms are vying for dominance.

The business model rests on the San Francisco-based company's partnerships with cable providers. Delivery Agent launched a History Channel shopping widget with Verizon late last year and this year has been expanding its relationships as well as exploring the vast potential of second screen shoppers with Shazam, digital couponing and more. We talked to CEO Mike Fitzsimmons about what he calls contextual commerce and why he thinks advertisers should act now or be the odd men out. Read More >>

TVGoods and TV Wallet™ partnership advances infomercial business through multi-channel roll out of DRTV products

Partnership With Delivery Agent Advances Infomercial Business Through Multi-Channel Re-Launch of AsSeenonTV.com


CLEARWATER, FL–(Marketwire – Jun 2, 2011) – TV Goods, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of H&H Imports, Inc. (OTCBB: HNHI) has entered into an agreement with Seen On TV, LLC to purchase AsSeenonTV.com and the toll-free number 866-AsSeenOnTV.


AsSeenonTV.com represents a highly trafficked catalog of direct response products with over two million customers, 700,000 email registrants and hundreds of thousands of unique visitors each month. Under the agreement, TV Goods intends to acquire AsSeenonTV.com and related intangible assets for $5,000,000, payable in cash and stock, and TV Goods has agreed to issue Seen On TV, LLC a minimum of 5,000,000 shares of common stock and a warrant to purchase 1,000,000 shares of common stock exercisable at $0.35 per share in consideration for the assets.


“We believe this is one of the biggest brands in global electronic retailing, a Crown Jewel of the direct response industry,” said TV Goods Chairman Kevin Harrington. “Together with our strategic partner Delivery Agent, we intend to take it to the next level, creating a new playing field to reach millions of new consumers around the globe.”


San Francisco-based Delivery Agent, the leader in transactional television, will handle all aspects of technology, including platform development and deployment — web, mobile and interactive television, interactive marketing, and operations. Delivery Agent-powered AsSeenOnTV.com enhancements include TV Goods’ live “Video Deals of the Day” with celebrity spokespersons, mobile applications allowing consumers to make purchases from iPhones and Androids, and T-commerce campaigns enabling TV viewers to “click-to-buy” directly from their remote controls. Delivery Agent’s proprietary transaction engine, TV Wallet™, which now powers interactive commerce for over 200 entertainment and sports properties including CBS, NBC, FOX, HBO, and many others, will be integrated into the shopping experience.


“AsSeenonTV.com is a big winner in the direct response industry. Dan Fasano knew this when he founded the site, and we are carrying on his legacy,” said Harrington.


Mary Beth Fasano, CEO of Seen On TV, LLC said, “My late husband Dan believed this was the premier direct response URL available. It is, and it’s a great testament to his vision that his friend Kevin Harrington and Delivery Agent have come together to take this property to its fullest potential.”


“The $50 billion dollar infomercial industry is a natural place for Delivery Agent to extend its transactional television platform,” said Mike Fitzsimmons, Delivery Agent CEO. “Thirty percent of U.S. households purchased a product from an infomercial last year. We look forward to making it even easier through the web, mobile devices and ultimately directly through a remote control.”

In addition to this strategic partnership, Kevin Harrington will be joining Delivery Agent’ s advisory board with a focus on growing the direct response market through all cross-channel platforms.

Rovi and TV Wallet™ Launch Shoppable Electronic Program Guides

New Guide Capabilities Expand Revenue Potential for Networks and Advertisers Through Contextual Commerce and One-click Advertiser Solutions


SANTA CLARA and SAN FRANCISCO – February 15, 2011 – Rovi Corporation (NASDAQ: ROVI) and Delivery Agent, the leader in multi-channel commerce for sports and entertainment, today jointly announced the first-ever contextual commerce capability within Rovi electronic program guides (EPGs) for television programming. With this capability, consumers will be able to buy products and services directly from their television program guides using their remote controls. Similar commerce capabilities are also planned to be available to consumers who access their electronic program guides through the web.


Powered by Delivery Agent’s interactive commerce engine, including its TV Wallet™, and its proprietary database of products mapped to television content, the new shoppable guides are planned to roll out next quarter with initial campaigns slated for hit NBC shows such as Biggest Loser and The Office and A&E Television Network series such as Pawn Stars, which airs on HISTORY®.


In parallel with the launch of commerce capabilities that allow consumers interacting with the guide to purchase products seen in and associated with related television programming, Delivery Agent plans to work with Rovi to offer EPG display advertisers the opportunity to add commerce elements to their advertising programs, providing a turnkey solution that includes designing, hosting and managing a fully-branded commerce and transaction experience.


“The electronic program guide is often the first point of contact a viewer has with a program on any given day and guide users visit the guide on average 9 times daily. The ability to shop-enable our guide by dynamically mapping products to listings can open up new opportunities for media companies to reach a highly engaged and active consumer audience. We believe that our valued advertisers, from entertainment to consumer packaged goods to auto manufacturers, will also benefit from the integration of Delivery Agent’s extensive suite of commerce tools,” said Jeff Siegel, senior vice president, worldwide advertising sales at Rovi Corporation.


“Delivery Agent’s commerce platform, including its proprietary database of 1M+ products seen in entertainment content, was built to close the gap between a consumer seeing a product on screen and a purchase opportunity. Today, through the collaboration with Rovi, and the deployment of shoppable program guides, we believe three audiences are better served: 1) consumers now have easier access to purchase contextually relevant product; 2) entertainment companies can monetize their branded content through the sale of products within the program guide environments; and 3) advertisers can commerce enable their campaigns within the guide, giving consumers a more complete connection to their brand. Delivery Agent is thrilled to be a part of this evolution,” said Mike Fitzsimmons, Delivery Agent CEO.
