For those interested in Sky Creative Agency:
Young people are watching and engaging with more news content online via digital platforms and social media and traditional news media is falling behind.
• Choose one social media platform and come up with a creative design-led idea that you think will help drive
more young people to engage with Sky News content.
• We’re looking for interactive and engaging design ideas that will grab the attention of young audiences and lead
to them engaging with Sky News content, both through TV and our website.
• The more you can show us the consumer’s journey as they engage with your idea the better.
For those interested in Now TV:
We know younger audiences are increasingly watching on demand content, and have more choice than ever. How could
NOW TV best increase its appeal to customers between 18-25.
• Review the NOW TV service and make recommendations to our Product team to broaden our appeal to this customer
• In terms of a Marketing campaign to drive awareness and engagement, what key messages would you suggest would be
most effective, and what channels would you use to ensure maximum impact? Be creative with how you share your answers and
suggestions. We are keen for you to use examples to back up your suggestions.
For those interested in Insight & Decision Science:
Younger audiences now watch more content on demand and show a preference for content tailored towards their interests. How would you improve the TV experience to help create a more enjoyable experience for our younger customers.
• Think about the data you could collect on how young people interact/use online viewing platforms, think about what we could
then do analytically to improve that experience and service.
• We’d encourage you to use research about the audience and how they use streaming services to support your recommendations.
• We welcome any examples of innovations that you think have worked well in the content streaming (or other relevant) markets.
