    Rogers shutters newscasts
    Editor 02/06/2013
    Rogers Media in Canada has turned off its 24-hour news channel after just 19 months on the air.

    Toronto-based CityNews Channel went off the air at 09.00 local time on Thursday, ending a brief struggle to find its way in Canada’s crowded news space.

    CityNews Channel debuted in October 2011, going up against Bell Media-owned CP24 and CTV News Net, CBC News Network and Sun TV News.

    The channel was killed by “evolving viewer habits and the global structural shift in advertising,” Rogers said in a statement, adding the company’s news efforts will now focus on the City network and a Toronto radio station.

    At the same time, Rogers said has cancelled a newscast aimed at Canada’s South Asian communities, seen on its Omni station group, and shuttered its production facilities in Alberta.

    “We remain committed to ethnic programming and will deliver news in four other languages, as well as continue to air programming in more than 40 languages,” said Rogers broadcasting president Scott Moore.

    In total, 62 full-time positions, or 2.5% of the Rogers workforce have been laid off as a result of the move, the company said.

    Rogers will hold its upfront presentation on June 4.

    MTV returns to Russia

    Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) will relaunch MTV Russia later this year as a rival to the entertainment channel that is to replace it next month.

    MTV Russia currently operates as a joint venture between VIMN and ProfMedia. However, this partnership comes to an end as of May 31.

    It will then be replaced by a new, ProfMedia-owned net targeting 14-44s, called Friday and branded locally as Pyatnitsa, which is scheduled to start transmiting June 1.

    Local reports suggest that ProfMedia is aiming to spend US$100m on the entertainment channel over the next two years.

    Meanwhile, MTV Russia will return with a “new look” as a wholly-owned and operated VIMN channel on October 1 for the first time since its launch 15 years ago.

    The channel will air local content alongside MTV programmes such as Jersey Shore and The Hills, dubbed into Russian.

    “By taking full editorial and management control of MTV, we aim to strengthen its presence in the Russian market, which is a global priority for Viacom,” said David Lynn, executive VP and MD of VIMN UK.

    VIMN also operates MTV Hits, MTV Dance, MTV Rocks and MTV HD in Russia, in addition to Nickelodeon and Paramount Comedy.

    BBCWW appoints global sales exec
    Editor 02/06/2013
    BBC Worldwide (BBCWW) has appointed Anna Gordon as director of global sales strategy, business development and planning, following the company’s recent restructure.


    Anna Gordon
    Gordon moves across from the BBC’s public service arm, where she’s currently head of commercial development at the UK broadcaster’s ‘Commercial Agency’ – its in-house coproduction and rights division.

    The Commercial Agency already works closely with BBCWW and prior to holding her post there Gordon was deputy head of strategy at BBC Television.

    She joins BBCWW in a new role, created in the wake of the extensive restructure the pubcaster’s commercial arm has gone through since the wheels were set in motion last summer.

    Gordon takes on some of the responsibilities that were handled by Steve Macallister, the organisation’s former president and MD of sales and distribution who left recently as the business shifted from divisional to geographical reporting lines.

    She reports to Paul Dempsey, who himself took up a newly-created post – that of president of global markets – as part of the reshuffle and was interim CEO till Tim Davie took over in March.

    Gordon’s role includes responsibility for high-level sales strategy and supporting the company’s sales teams around the world and at major markets including Mipcom, MipTV and its own BBC Showcase.

    “Our aspiration is to be even better, and Anna’s role has been designed to help us to do that. She joins with excellent credentials from the BBC and I’m looking forward to working with her,” said Dempsey.

    India, Estonia get Connected
    Editor 02/06/2013

    Broadcasters in India and Estonia have ordered a total of 95 episodes of the Israeli docu-reality format Connected.

    Zee TV in India has ordered 65 episodes of Connected, in which six Indian women will film and document every aspect, with their lives becoming entwined in the process.

    Distributor Armoza claims the show will make history by being the first programme ever to feature a lesbian woman and LGBT activist on Indian television. The first episode will debut next month and the show will air daily in an evening slot.

    Meanwhile, in Estonia, Kanal 2 has greenlit a 30-episode run, which has already begun production.

    The format has previously been sold to DR2 in Denmark (DR2), TV Norge in Norway, NED3 in the Netherlands and 1+1 in Ukraine (1+1), amongst others. A fifth season is set to air on Hot TV in its native Israel this summer, produced by Koda.

    Hulu international chief departs

    According to Bloomberg, Larcher resigned earlier this month. The news comes as Hulu is said to considering a string of takeover bids from firms including Yahoo!, Time Warner Cable and DirecTV.

    Larcher joined Hulu in 2009 and two years later oversaw the US VOD-site’s move into the Japanese market – its only foreign launch to date. Prior to this he held a number of internationally focused roles, including VP and general manager of international for Friendster and general manager of international at Overture, which was later taken over by Yahoo!.

    Larcher’s reported move follows the departures this year of CEO Jason Kilar and chief technology officer Rich Tom – a decision that the pair first announced in January.

    According to stateside reports, Hulu is currently mulling takeover bids from seven or more interested parties, which is said to include private equity firms KKR, Guggenheim Partners through its Guggenheim Digital arm, and Silver Lake Partners in conjunction with Hollywood talent agency WME.

    Kids TV takes off in Europe
    June 3, 2013 10.01 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    TV channels aimed at children are becoming increasingly common in Europe, with Belgacom, Liberty Global’s Telenet and UPC, Numericable, Zon and Canal+ in Poland among the leading providers nationally on an on demand basis.
    Data published by the European Audiovisual Observatory shows that most other on demand services are from traditional broadcasters, including those in Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands and UK.
    On a pan-European level, the most important channels such as Disney, Nickleodeon, JimJam, Boomerang and Cartoon Network all have many on demand services targeting different European countries, with the majority of these services being registered in the UK.
    The Observatory also says that in the case of the DTT sector, most children’s channels appear on free networks and are in fact public service channels, while a wide range of private children’s channels are available on pay-DTT networks in 14 countries.
    All told, there are over 280 children’s channels in the EU and around 320 in Europe as a whole, and of these almost 300 are private and only 21 part of the public services broadcasting system.
    Over 80 channels are focused on national markets and overall the most important pan-European brands are Disney (63 channels), Nickelodeon (44), Cartoon Network (29) and Boomerang (21).

    Connected devices: the security challenge
    June 3, 2013 09.16 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    The industry is only just starting to look at the security challenges for connected devices, according to Hans Kwaaitaal, VP strategic partner relations, Conax.
    In a wide-ranging interview with Broadband TV News, he said that “we are starting to see a whole range of new threats” and it is useful to understand the issue by making a comparison with the PC.
    Unlike the latter, STBs connected to the internet do not have a firewall, and if you “attack one hybrid STB you attack them all.”
    This is a big threat and can result in hackers taking over a STB population. Hybrid STBs are very vulnerable to denial of service attacks and it is worth bearing in mind that OTT boxes have no protection at all.
    Kwaaitaal added that the focus now is on security for DVB broadcasts and not enough is being looked at connected devices.
    However, Conax is and has been doing so since the beginning. Indeed, it set up a security evaluation scheme for STBs around 5-6 years ago.
    When asked about whether complacency had crept into the industry, Kwaaitaal said that one of the challenges was that purchase decisions used to in the past be largely made by CTOs. Today, they are usually made by purchasing departments.
