    Kabel BW to add HD channels
    Jörn Krieger | 31-05-2013
    German cable operator Kabel BW will add three new HD channels to its cable network serving federal state Baden-Württemberg: auto motor sport HD, Spiegel TV Wissen HD and Lust Pur HD.
    At the same time, the data rate of the fastest Internet access service will be increased to more than 100Mbps.
    To create the capacity for the expansion, Kabel BW will reshuffle the transmission frequencies on its cable network in June 2013. If the channels aren't automatically found on their new slots, customers have to do a channel search on their digital reception device.
    Further information on the changes, the timetable and the revised channel line-up can be found on http://www.kabelbw.de/info. The affected households will also receive information by letter.

    First Ultra HDTV 4K broadcast in Latin America
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 31-05-2013
    Media Networks and Telefonica Audiovisual Solutions (TSA) have carried out the first Ultra HDTV 4K broadcast in Latin America.
    Through the Hispasat satellite, the image was generated by Telefónica in Madrid and shown in Rio de Janeiro in order to celebrate that the Ka band is now working in Latin America thanks to the new Amazonas satellite.
    This is only the first step for the region, as there is no Ultra HDTV 4K programming as yet. "The first one will enter pay-TV in the Q2 of next year," said Loles del Campillo, TV productions director of Media Networks, at the event.
    However, this isn't the first time Telefonica has made an Ultra HDTV broadcast. TSA and Hispasat carried out the same kind of event in Barcelona in March during the annual DVB World Forum.
    TSA specialises in the broadcast of TV signals, as well as general solutions for audiovisual systems. The company is part of Spain's Telefónica Group and is integrated with Media Networks on a global scale. This originally Peruvian company is currently one of the biggest B2B companies for pay-TV and satellite Internet in Latin America, and is working in most of region's countries as well as in Spain and the USA.

    Mediaset's Telecinco to launch web series
    Parent Category: News | 31-05-2013
    Spain's Telecinco is to start broadcasting a web series on its online platform Mitele.es on Monday. The Mediaset channel has produced Nadia en Cuesta, a short series of seven episodes written and filmed by students.
    The series is the result of a Mediaset project started last year called Revolution Lab: Rodemos una Serie. Eight months later and under the direction of the filmmaker Chus Gutiérrez, seven students will now present Nadia en Cuesta.
    This is the second time Telecinco has attempted to enter the web series market, the first being the release of Con Pelos en la Lengua. The process in that case was different, however, as the series was initially released free on the Internet and, after having some success, was purchased by Telecinco and shown on Mitele.es.
    With Nadia en Cuesta, the process was supported by Mediaset from the beginning. "Every student wrote and directed one episode, working on it from the first idea to the last editing task," explained Gutiérrez. The students also had help from some of the most recognised directors in the Spanish film industry, with Icíar Bollaín, Gracia Querejeta and Alex de la Iglesia, who was president of the Spanish film academy, all advising the students during the process.
    Nadia en Cuesta's episodes will be released every Monday for seven consecutive weeks. The series tells, in a humorous way, the story of a girl in a low-paid job who is trying to find her way in the context of the current financial crisis.

    Microsoft maintains IPTV leadership
    Joseph O'Halloran | 31-05-2013
    Microsoft is still the only company to occupy two top slots in the regular snapshot of the IPTV market by leading analyst MRG.
    MRG's IPTV Market Leader Reports (MLR) aims to identify which IPTV systems and software companies are leading in six IPTV market segments: access systems; video head-end systems (VHE); video-on-demand (VOD) server software; set-top boxes (STB); middleware (MW); and content protection/digital rights management (CP/DRM).
    In the survey the IT giant has a leadership position in VOD and content protection, due mainly to its relationship with AT&T. VOD leadership was also driven by Microsoft’s relationships with large-sized IPTV providers in Western Europe. By contrast, in VOD in Asia is commanded by CASTIS and Anevia is top dog for VOD in the Middle East/Africa region for the first time.
    Tracking More than 100 vendors and 940 IPTV providers, overall MRG found that the growth in the number of new IPTV service providers has been slowing down recently because many of the leading providers have already launched services.
    The primary exceptions are the Middle East/Africa region as well as Latin America/Caribbean, which will likely see large growth in the next few years. Yet the analyst cautions that many countries in these regions have been slow to launch IPTV services, primarily because of government regulations prohibiting telcos from operating pay-TV services. Other countries, it adds, have run into technical hurdles and are busy upgrading their networks in preparation to launch their triple-play services.
    Even though MRG expects some closures at providers, it believes that one of the biggest trends will be companies adopting hybrid TV services, supplementing their IPTV services with satellite, digital terrestrial or even cable technology.
    MRG also notes that telcos are already offering additional services, such as over-the-top (OTT) video and TV, either as a separate service, or included within their IPTV platform. It suggests that the primary reasons for these changes are to gain more coverage in their regions, supplement their TV offerings and continue to gain TV subscribers. Hybrid services are becoming particularly popular in regions like Latin America.

    Digitürk for sale, Canal+ possible buyer
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 31-05-2013
    Turkey's Digitürk platform could be sold off in whole or in part after the Turkish State Fund Savings Deposit Insurance Fund (TMSF) seized all assets of the Çukurova Group, the majority owner of Digitürk and Show TV broadcaster.
    According to local reports, TMSF is to enter talks with Providence Equity Partners, which holds the 47% of Digitürk not owned by Çukurova, with a view to selling either Çukurova's stake or organising a joint sale of the company.
    French Canal+ Group is also reported to be among the possible buyers of the DTH platform. In 2011 Canal+ Group unsuccessfully attempted to buy Providence's shares. The company was then valued at around €1 billion.
    In a statement, Digitürk assured its partners that this move will have no impact on the platform's subscribers.

    French broadband subs pass 24 million mark
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 31-05-2013
    The number of French subscribers to broadband and ultra-fast broadband services passed the 24 million mark to reach 24.2 million on 31 March, according to figures published by telecom regulator Arcep.
    Net growth accounts for 260,000 new subscriptions over the first three months of the year, and 1.2 million year-on-year.
    The breakdown shows that more than 1.7 million of these subscriptions are for ultra-fast broadband, a 22% rise over one year (or 300,000 subscriptions).
    FTTH subscriptions accounted for 365,000, up 50,000 over the first quarter of 2013 and 70% over one year. 19% of FTTH passed homes are now paying a subscription.
    However, 22.5 million of the global subscriptions are for broadband, which predominantly goes through ADSL. 2% are using satellite, Wi-Fi, cable and Wimax technologies.

    Effective advertising boosts Atresmedia
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 31-05-2013
    The results of Zenith's report on audiovisual advertising during Q1 2013 shows that Atresmedia's channels are in good shape, revealing that its channels are the most effective in Spain with regard to advertising as their audiences watch the adverts for longer, instead of changing channel.
    75.2% of Antena 3 viewers remain tuned in during the advert breaks, while in the case of major competitor Telecinco, this percentage was only 69%. According to Zenith's report, Telecinco is also the channel with the highest advert saturation, with more ads per break.
    The report also gives an index regarding general effectiveness, which is calculated by dividing the number of adverts viewed on average by the number of spots broadcast by the channel. Antena 3 is in top position with a rating of 3.8, followed by Telecinco (3.7). Both are far above the regional channels (2.2), La Sexta (2.0) and Cuatro (1.6).
    However, these figures still show low impact, and point out another possible cause of the advertising crisis: Antena 3 featured 121 spots each day, but on average only 4.6 were watched, while Telecinco broadcast 136 and only 5.1 were watched.

    YouView starts to gain traction heading towards 400,000 homes
    Parent Category: News | 31-05-2013
    Despite the many delays, boardroom upheavals and technical obstacles that it has had to face, the YouView project looks like it is actually beginning to gain a head of steam.
    The non-subscription on-demand service — whose founding partners include the BBC, ITV, BT, TalkTalk, Arqiva, Channel 4 and Channel 5 — now claims to be the fastest growing TV service in the UK. Today YouView announced that it is on its way to reaching 400,000 homes across the UK, eight months after launch.
    Further viewing statistics have revealed that YouView now serves over 2.2 million video-on-demand (VOD) plays per week, with around 60% of customers viewing VOD programmes every week. On average viewers watch seven programmes a week – more than three hours of content – of an average length of 27 minutes.
    Undeterred by what has happened over the previous three years, Richard Halton, CEO YouView, described the stats as showing that the service had made “a great start”. He added: “We’re delighted to have received such a positive response from consumers. We’re already the fastest growing TV service in the UK and now we can see that translating into viewing. Seamless access to content is at the heart of the YouView proposition and we are delighted to announce that Internet channels are set to launch this summer as well as the extension of our app strategy to the Android platform. YouView is taking catch-up TV into the mainstream.”
    Looking forward, YouView also revealed that it will add online TV channels to the service enabling it to move from offering the traditional 70 free-to-air channels and open up the service to a theoretically limitless number of live channels. It will also launch within the next few weeks an Android version of the YouView app which will allow users to access a TV guide and use remote record functionality.
