    Mexico pay-TV continues to boom
    By Chris Forrester 02/06/2013

    Mexico is enjoying continued demand for pay-TV. Growth in the year to March 31st was at a spectacular 12.4 per cent, taking the total number of subscribing homes to 13.3 million.
    Mexico’s COFITEL regulator says the market has a “new dynamism” from the various competitors, both satellite and terrestrial, with a broader range of prices and offers coming into the market making pay-TV possible to a larger number of people on lower incomes.
    DTH subscribing is still leading the charge, and in the year to March 31st saw growth of 20.9 per cent. However, this is the lowest percentage growth achieved since 2009. DTH subscriptions stand at 7.1 million. But within the overall DTH numbers Sky Mexico reported 26.4 per cent growth y-o-y.
    MMDS viewing is fading to near-zero, falling in percentage terms by 21.2 per cent to just 156,000 subs.
    Cable grew 4.8 per cent to a total of 6 million subscribing homes.

    Heineken launching YouTube series

    Heineken the brewer is to launch a YouTube TV series. The online series, entitled Dropped, is part of the latest stage of Heineken’s global multimillion-pound ad campaign which continues with a new TV ad, The Voyage.
    Heineken described Dropped as a “social experiment”, with members of the public encouraged to live outside their boundaries and cope with unusual experiences, like the protagonist in The Voyage TV commercials.
    “We want to go further than inspiring men to be resourceful and open to the world,” said the Heineken global communications director, Sandrine Huijgen. “We are giving a few of them the opportunity to go beyond the borders of their comfort zone. Dropped is a social experiment that will challenge the participant to display their true character and if they do, have a legendary travel experience.”
    Members of the public will be able to upload videos of their version of a “legendary take on an everyday journey” –– with a winner chosen to feature in their own Heineken Dropped adventure.
    The aim of the new Voyage TV ad is to inspire Heineken drinkers to be travelers – not tourists, according to creators Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam.

    C4 to show ad break in French
    Editor 02/06/2013
    Channel 4 has revealed it will broadcast an exclusive themed ad break of French adverts with subtitles in the first episode of its new French zombie drama, The Returned, which airs on June 9th.
    The major brands interested to feature their French ads in the one-off break include L’Oreal, Renault, Bel Boursin and Emirates – and for extra authenticity, each ad will carry its own subtitles. This themed break will be introduced by a French voiceover which will also carry subtitles. This is the first time a UK broadcaster has ever broadcast an entire break of French language adverts – and with subtitles.
    Jonathan Allan, Sales Director at Channel 4 said: “We’re really excited to bring the first entirely French ad break to Channel 4 to herald the arrival of our eagerly awaited new zombie drama series – it should really make the ads fit within the context of the show and surprise the viewer, cutting through to the audience.”

    Televisa, UFC prep Lat Am channel

    Mexico’s Televisa and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) have agreed a deal to launch a 24/7 UFC channel across Latin America later this year.

    The Spanish-language pay channel, dedicated to round-the-clock UFC and mixed martial arts bouts and related reality series, will air 20,000 hours of content in 20 Lat Am territories.

    “The launch of the UFC Channel is a game-changer for our sport and its fans throughout Latin America,” said Lorenzo Fertitta, owner and co-founder of Zuffa, parent of the UFC. “We are giving millions of fans across the region complete access to all our live events and programming for the first time.”

    “The new UFC channel occupies a coveted position in both sports entertainment and lifestyle ecosystems. Through live fights, UFC classic bouts, Strikeforce, Pride and other related content for mixed martial arts fans, this 24/7 channel further strengthens Televisa Networks’ offering,” added Bruce Boren, general manager of Televisa Networks.

    Ahead of the UFC Channel launch, Televisa has licensed the rights to air UFC content in 20 countries in the region, excluding Brazil, starting next month.

    Under the latter deal, UFC programming will air on Televisa and Televisa Desportes in Mexico and Golden Channel in Latin America. The deal includes four live events to be broadcast on Televisa-owned free-to-air Channel 5 in Mexico and other FTA networks in Latin America annually.

    FX seals Death Pact
    Editor 02/06/2013

    US cable network FX has greenlit a single-camera comedy pilot starring 30 Rock actor and Saturday Night Live comedian Tracy Morgan.

    Death Pact sees Morgan playing a formerly lazy, pot-dealing assistant high school coach who returns to his home town as a decorated war hero.

    Produced by FX Productions, the show was co-created by Rob Long (Cheers) and Tad Safran (The Long Weekend), who are also exec producers, alongside Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men) via The Tannenbaum Company.

    Earlier this week, FX greenlit another comedy pilot, in which comedian and actor Billy Crystal stars as a washed-up comic attempting to revive his career. The show is based on the Swedish mockumentary Ulveson och Herngren, which aired on pubcaster SVT from 2004.
