    Slow deployment for TV Everywhere in the US
    June 7, 2013 07.39 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent

    More than four years after the first public announcement of the cable industry’s TV Everywhere initiative, deployment to America’s multichannel TV subscribers remains at less than 50%.
    TDG’s latest report, A Review of 2013 TV Everywhere Deployment Status, details the availability of authenticated TVE content for the 14 leading TV networks to subscribers of the 15 largest multichannel TV operators. On average, each of these networks is available via TVE to only 45% of those operator’s pay-TV subscribers.
    According to Bill Niemeyer, TDG senior analyst and author of the new report, “TV Everywhere is arguably the best response that the multichannel TV operators and networks have to the competitive threat posed by online video services, including those from Netflix and Aereo. Despite this fact, TVE rollout has been disappointingly slow.”
    “Ironically,” noted Niemeyer, “the delay is not due to technology but rather business friction between TV networks and operators – the two parties who stand to benefit the most from a timely TVE rollout.”
    Niemeyer does acknowledge that some networks have seized the TVE opportunity, pointing out that HBO offers its programming online to authenticated subscribers of all top 15 MVPDs. On the other hand, three of the top 10 cable networks have yet to offer any type of TVE access to their subscribers. “The pay-TV industry needs to move now to conclude agreements and become fully engaged in the game with its online programming services.”

    Top 20 IPTV providers served 57.7m subscribers
    June 7, 2013 07.37 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent

    SNL Kagan analysis indicates the world’s top 20 IPTV providers served 57.7 million subscribers at the end of 2012, with China accounting for 35.5% of the total. The report identifies Microsoft Mediaroom as the world’s most deployed IPTV platform.
    An analysis of the world’s 20 largest IPTV providers by SNL Kagan evidences that a handful of operators dominate the global IPTV market with a geographic concentration in Western Europe and Asia-Pacific.
    Nine operators out of 20 are located in Western Europe and seven in Asia. Asian telcos accounted for 49.2% of the top 20′s IPTV subscribers in 2012, reflecting the region’s large market size and limited telco competition.
    China’s leading telcos (China Telecom and China Unicom) serve an estimated 30% of the global IPTV subscriber base.
    France, the second-largest IPTV market by subscribers after China, is home to four operators ranked among the global top 20.
    SNL Kagan’s analysis indicates that Microsoft Mediaroom is the world’s most deployed IPTV platform. Mediaroom-powered IPTV systems served 16% of the world’s IPTV subscribers at end-2012, based on SNL Kagan’s estimates. The majority of IPTV operators prefer to partner with third-party vendors for IPTV middleware, but some have chosen to develop it themselves.
    Among the global top 20 IPTV providers, a total of seven developed IPTV middleware in-house. The report also found a preference to source IPTV services locally, with 15 out of 20 operators choosing to partner with middleware vendors from their home regions.
    Julija Jurkevic, Media and Communications Analyst at SNL Kagan, commented: “IPTV is the fastest-growing pay TV platform from a global perspective (increasing by 29.6% YoY in 2012 compared to cable’s 2.2% and satellite’s 10.1% YoY growth). IPTV subscriber populations are largely concentrated in Europe and Asia where accelerated rollouts of next generation broadband networks are driving video service adoption.”

    Guatemala to use ISDB-T from 2015
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 07-06-2013
    Guatemala's Government has officially stated that the country will use the Japanese-Brazilian DTT standard ISDB-T for its DTT network.
    The digital TV network will be expanded throughout the country until 2015, when the analogue switch-off is planned.
    The country has chosen the same system as the most other Latin American countries, except Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and some Caribbean islands which will use the North American ATSC; Colombia which has decided to install the European standard DVB-T; and Cuba, which is using the Chinese DTMB.
    The Ministry of Telecommunications in Guatemala was also considering the DVB-T and ASTC standards, but finally decided on the Japanese system.
    The main reason for choosing the ISDB-T standard was the opportunity for cooperation with the Latin American audiovisual industry, as well as the support given by Brazil's Ministry of Communications, which sent engineers to provide information about the standard.
    But there are also other opportunities that come with using the ISDB-T standard. The CEO of Guatevisión, Jaime Torres, told the country's media that "the converters from analogue to digital signal for ISDB-T are less expensive ... and television broadcasts to mobile telephones can also be done with greater clarity of sound and image".
    Following the announcement, the Government will start the process of testing and installing the DTT network in order to decide upon the specific date for the analogue switch-off.

    ICE launches IPTV platform in Costa Rica
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 07-06-2013
    Costa Rica's public telecom company Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) has launched an IPTV platform in the country.
    The system had already been tested in some parts of the country, but will now be available in every house.
    The platform, called Kölbi hogar TV, has 87 television channels - seven of which are in HD - 11 pay-per-view channels and 49 audio channels. The service allows viewers to interact with the television, customise the offer and personalise user accounts.
    The signals are received at ICE by satellite and then data packages are sent through the Internet to the customers. The system includes the usual features of an IPTV service. It is possible to record content – up to 70 hours of HD content – and forward or rewind selected programmes.
    An Internet package is not required in order to receive Kölbi hogar TV but it costs $32 for the regular version and $40 for the HD version.
    Some customers have already reported that houses further than a kilometre from the local broadcasting station are having problems receiving the IPTV signal.

    ANGA COM 2013 sets visitor record
    Jörn Krieger | 07-06-2013
    German cable, satellite and broadband trade fair ANGA COM closed its doors in Cologne yesterday having played host to 450 exhibitors from 36 countries and, for the first time, more than 17,000 visitors, 50% of whom came from abroad.
    1,700 of the visitors registered for the conference programme accompanying the fair. With these figures, the show increased its number of participants both for the fair and the conference by 6% each.
    "This year, ANGA Cable became ANGA COM. The new name highlights broadband and media – our two thematic focus points – more strongly," said Thomas Braun, president of German cable operator association ANGA which hosts ANGA COM.
    "This was also clearly visible in the fair hall. Next to the classic cable and satellite technology, fibre optic expansion, IPTV, video-on-demand, software solutions and consumer electronics are now a firm part of the product portfolio of our exhibitors," said Braun. "We are particularly happy about the success of our topical day covering the connected home which we have jointly organised with the BITKOM association."
    ANGA COM 2014 will take place 20-22 May 2014 in Cologne.

    Handful of operators dominate global IPTV market
    Editor | 07-06-2013
    New research from SNL Kagan has revealed that the largest IPTV operators are maintaining an iron grip on video business for the platform.
    The State of Top 20 Global IPTV Operators report found that by the end of 2012, the 20 largest IPTV operators served 83% of global IPTV households (57.7 million subscribers).
    Regionally, Western Europe and Asia-Pacific dominated, with nine operators out of 20 located in Western Europe and seven in Asia.
    Indeed Asian telcos accounted for 49.2% of the top 20's IPTV subscribers in 2012, reflecting the region's large market size and limited telco competition, with China alone accounting for 35.5% of the total and China Telecom and China Unicom themselves serving around 30% of the global IPTV subscriber base.
    Microsoft Mediaroom was found to be the world's most deployed IPTV platform, serving 16% of the world's IPTV subscribers by the end of 2012.
    In terms of IPTV middleware, the research found that the majority of IPTV operators preferred to partner with third-party vendors, but some had chosen to develop it themselves. Among the global top 20 IPTV providers, a total of seven developed IPTV middleware in-house. Three-quarters of operators chose to partner with middleware vendors from their home regions.
    "IPTV is the fastest growing pay-TV platform from a global perspective (increasing by 29.6% year-on-year in 2012 compared to cable's 2.2% and satellite's 10.1% year-on-year growth)," commented Julija Jurkevic, media and communications analyst at SNL Kagan. "IPTV subscriber populations are largely concentrated in Europe and Asia, where accelerated rollouts of next-generation broadband networks are driving video service adoption."
