    Games consoles take lead as TV-capable connected devices near 120 million mark
    Parent Category: News | 07-06-2013
    A 51% rise in such products over the next two years will see 119 million connected devices delivering broadband Internet to TVs in US homes according to a new report from the NPD Group.
    The Connected Intelligence Connected Home Forecast Report estimates that streaming media players will see the highest growth in installed units by 2015, followed by connected TVs, connected Blu-ray disc players and connected video game consoles.
    Even though the latter are projected to see the lowest percentage of growth in installed units, they are expected to remain the primary device for delivering Internet to the TV.
    NPD predicts that by 2015 the number of installed Internet connected video game consoles is projected to increase 22% as consumers begin to swap out their existing consoles for next-generation consoles that rely heavily on connectivity.
    Moreover, and what may be key given the recent launch of the Microsoft Xbox One, these connected game consoles see use for far more than gaming. For example, the report found that the most popular activity from PlayStation 3 (PS3) users was watching a DVD (34%) followed by watching a Blu-ray disc (30%). Nearly a quarter of Xbox owners used the device both for watching YouTube and watching DVDs; Wii users' highest non-gaming activity was to stream a movie through Netflix (21%).
    "The battle in living rooms across the US isn't only between people deciding what to watch, it's between the devices vying to get content onto the screen," said John Buffone, director of the device practice of Connected Intelligence. "Consumers have a lot of hardware options, on average 1.5 internet devices per connected TV. When it comes to watching streamed content, TV viewers have to choose between the unique set of applications, user interface and other characteristics offered by each device."

    2013 set be breakout year for online video monetisation
    Parent Category: News | 07-06-2013
    The third annual Canada Video Advertising Report has revealed that online video is proving to be a more effective source for marketers than traditional TV services.
    The study of more than 300 advertising executives at top agencies across Canada, undertaken by video advertising platform provider BrightRoll along with IAB Canada, revealed that Canadian advertisers are accelerating spending towards digital video to meet growing demands from clients looking to reach audiences across all screens. Indeed, this rise was in the region of 42%.
    Moreover, the survey found that brands and agencies have increased confidence in video as a valuable and effective tool to build engagement, enhance brand reach and deliver proven ROI. Not only is digital video the preferred ad format – 69% of respondents regarded video as equally or more effective than TV, while 86% preferred video to display – advertisers no longer question its effectiveness.
    When asked what aspect of digital video advertisers find most valuable, 39% cited video's targeting capabilities.
    In another key shift which may likely be reflected south of the border, the survey found that Canadian advertisers are shifting towards programmatic technology, including real-time bidding (RTB), to buy video. Just over two-fifths of Canadian agencies expect to allocate half or more of their ad spend to programmatic buying in 2013, citing pricing efficiency as the key benefit.
    Attempting to find what was causing this uptick, the survey identified technological advances in ad buying, serving and measurement as key drivers. According to agency respondents, completed views were seen as the most important success metric for video campaigns, a 92% increase from 2012. While two-thirds of respondents sought to validate the viewability of their video ad campaigns, 30% of advertisers said they would like to better understand how GRP audience measurement can be applied to digital video to improve campaigns and complement TV ad buys.

    90,000 UK DTT homes likely to suffer signal interference from 4G
    Editor | 07-06-2013
    As its tests come to a conclusion, at800, the body responsible for protecting quality of Freeview DTT services when 4G at 800MHz is rolled out across the UK, is predicting that no more than 90,000 homes will suffer interference.
    at800 has based its conclusion on what it has found from tests in the West Midlands, Brighton and the London area (ongoing), and made its calculation assuming that national rollout reflects the results already seen. Only new 4G services at 800MHz could cause problems with Freeview; existing 4G mobile services from EE operate at 1800MHz and do not disrupt television reception.
    The metropolitan area was seen as a source of particular concern. Yet at800 has assured that Freeview served from the famous Crystal Palace transmitter is unlikely to be affected by mast activation because of the strong terrestrial television signal and its relatively large frequency separation from 4G at 800MHz.

    Comedy Central launches stand-up video app for iPhone, iPad
    Parent Category: News | 07-06-2013
    Viacom's Comedy Central is getting into TV everywhere with the launch of CC: Stand-Up, a free video app for iPhone and iPad, meant to act as a stand-up channel, a tool to discover new comics and a platform for sharing comedic content.
    CC: Stand-Up App features more than 700 comedians, giving fans deep access to a constant stream of content. The app's discovery tool, Six Degrees of Stand-Up, uses a recommendation algorithm that will enmesh fans into an intricate web of comedic connections to discover new comics. For example, after viewing Pete Holmes, Six Degrees generates a Web of additional comedians based on similar sensibilities (alternative comedy), topics (animals) and relationships (love of Ryan Gosling).
    The app also gives fans the ability to watch curated playlists and share videos via Facebook and Twitter.
    "At its simplest, CC: Stand-Up is a digitally distributed, pure stand-up channel, in which fans can immerse themselves for hours with just one touch," said Erik Flannigan, executive vice president of multi-platform strategy and development for Viacom. "Layered onto that is an intuitive on-demand and recommendation platform which makes the discovery of new comedians something fun to explore. It's got the whole 'lean forward, lean back' thing people always talk about, only for real."

    VU TV gears up for local-focused channel launch
    Michelle Clancy | 07-06-2013
    IC Punch Media has set the official launch date for its upcoming VU Television Network: 23 September 2013. It will launch in 15 major cities across the US, offering original programming combined with local entertainment news and event offerings.
    VU is developing national programming and content consisting of launch-related specials, reality series, comedy, local entertainment news, drama and family-friendly movies along with children's programming for morning weekday and weekend time periods.
    "The main differentiator for VU Television will be our local presence in each city," said Steven Samblis, CEO of IC Punch Media. "While the majority of networks that have launched over the past few years have only been able to offer national cable programming, VU Television will tap into the power of our IC Places | See Your World in a New Way! websites to enhance and attract more audience numbers."
    He added: "Over the past eight years, through our icplaces.com websites, we have built a large contingence of local partnerships and viewers in each city. These include local concert and event partners in each market, along with restaurant partners, business partners, theatres, both large and small, Hollywood studios and out-of-home network partners. We will now harness these relationships and deliver it to our stations in each and every city, giving us a true local presence combined with an amazing line up of original programming and content."
    One anchor of local programming for VU Television in each city will be a weekly half-hour entertainment news show, Happening This Week in...!! The show will bring local viewers an entertainment hub showcasing everything going on that week in their city.
    VU will also feature upcoming concerts and events coming to town each week. The Happening show will tell people how to purchase tickets for the various events, and will offer local restaurant reviews sent in by people around the city using the icplaces.com Instant Restaurant Review app, which will be relaunching in August 2013. Happening will also announce and hold local movies screenings with give-away prizes and events on air in partnership with local businesses in each city.

    A&E: premiums should accompany high Twitter engagement for TV shows
    Michelle Clancy | 07-06-2013
    Score one for social TV: TV networks' Twitter accounts have gone from being little more than promotional outlets for tune-in messaging to real-time channels for networks and advertisers to interact with highly engaged audiences, Nielsen reports.
    So does this mean that programmers can charge advertisers more for content with high Twitter engagement?
    Evan Silverman, senior vice president of digital media for A&E networks, speaking at Nielsen's Consumer 360 conference in Phoenix, said that advancements in social TV analytics are giving the industry a way to measure the total size of the social TV audience — both those participating in the conversation and those who watch on the sidelines. Those analytics are in turn making the social TV opportunity real and measurable for advertisers.
    Silverman discussed how A&E was able to drive audience engagement for Project Runway, which runs on its subsidiary Lifetime network, through strategic Twitter TV initiatives. When Project Runway launched a fan-favourite social campaign, encouraging viewers to vote for designers by using custom hashtags, the initiative resulted in nearly five comments per unique user — more than the ratio for any other cable TV show at the time, he said.
    A&E believes that there should be a premium charge for programming with high social engagement, Silverman said.
    "The most important thing we all do is to generate a linear rating for our company. However, social TV is extremely valuable in its own right and absolutely helps amplify the conversation, he

    June 7, 2013 10.44 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Croatia’s Vipnet has acquired a 100% stake in the cable operator OKI and at the same time signed contracts to buy the business interests in Metronet’s residential infrastructure and the cable operator KTS.
    As a result, its fibre coaxial network should reach an additional 27,000 homes in the cities of Zagreb, Zapresic, Samobor, Sibernik and Dubrovnik.
    Commenting on the deals, Mladen Pejkovic, Vipnet’s CEO, said: “Our aim is to provide all existing and new customers with the best user experience and new services, that is, the best combination of services in diverse packages according to the best prices. Through investments in the infrastructure that will follow this acquisition we will strengthen the competitiveness of the local economy. With the acquisition of new cable operators we are continuing with the implementation of our convergence strategy that we began in 2011.”
    Vipnet is owned by Telekom Austria and a leading provider of cable, IPTV and DTH services, the latter following its acquisition of Digi TV earlier this year.

    ANGA COM 2013 closes with a new visitor record
    June 7, 2013 11.23 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    This year’s ANGA COM ended with 450 exhibitors and a record 17,000 participants, of which 50% came from abroad.
    1,700 of the participants took also part in the accompanying congress programme. Thus, the rade show for Broadband, Cable & Satellite has increased the last year’s participant numbers for the congress and the exhibition of 6 %.
    “This year, ANGA Cable has become ANGA COM. The new name even better reflects our two thematic pillars, broadband and media. This was also clearly visible in the exhibition hall. In addition to the traditional cable and satellite technology, the roll-out of fiber, IPTV, Video on Demand, software solutions and consumer electronics have become integral parts of our exhibitors’ product range. We’re especially pleased with the success of the Connected Home special, which we organized in cooperation with the BITKOM association,” said Thomas Braun, president of the hosting ANGA Association of German Cable Operators.
    Herbert Strobel, chairman of the Satellite & Cable Trade Association within the German Association of the Electrical and Electronics Industry ZVEI is also very satisfied with the show: “Yet again, the event has proven an impressive success, with the consistent thematic evolution towards ANGA COM contributing to that. As the market place for network operators, suppliers and broadcasters ANGA COM will remain the industry highlight of the year for our manufacturers and systems providers.”
    Dr. Peter Charissé, managing director ANGA COM: “Our latest ideas, the new ANGA COM brand and the new topic ‘Connected Media Home’ have taken off. What our 450 exhibitors put in place was top class. Each year, our visitor structure is becoming more diverse and increases in quality.”

    Valencia's RTVV faces closure due to lay-offs

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 07-06-2013
    The Spanish regional channel of Valencia, Radiotelivisiò Valenciana (RTVV), could be forced to temporarily close from 1 September because of a lack of technicians due to lay-offs which have come about as part of the partial privatisation process the company is currently going through.
    The board's strategy was to outsource technical services, but now, according to a statement by RTVV's CEO Rosa Vidal in the newspaper Levante-EMV, "there is no time, if we respect the legal steps, to hire a private company which will carry out the tasks". The lay-off strategy has turned out to be a badly calculated one as the channel is now being forced to close.
    RTVV's decision to outsource was made following a viability report by Pricewaterhouse Coopers, which pointed to the creation of a small group of independent technicians which could take on the work for the private company. This group was going to bridge the gap while new staff was being hired. However, the creation of the group was apparently cancelled by the board of directors to save money, and this has brought about the current situation.

    Bananas in Pyjamas to remain on ABC TV
    Louise Duffy | 07-06-2013
    The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has confirmed that it will continue to broadcast the children's series Bananas in Pyjamas.
    The latest series has 156 new episodes, which the channel started premiering in May this year.
    Another series of Bananas in Pyjamas will go through the usual commissioning process to determine future production of the programme. This process does not relate to current Government funding.
    In 2012 ABC4Kids was Australia's highest ranking children’s television service for preschoolers.
