    The BBC has reporeted that there were 257 million BBC iPlayer requests in May equalling that of April.
    The trend of requests across PC, mobile, tablet and connected TV remains consistent with previous month.
    The average daily requests remained strong at just under 8 million, and weekly requests were steady on 53 million.
    There was a record 76 million requests for radio programmes – continuing the trend of listening to BBC radio programmes via BBC iPlayer
    BBC Radio 4 comedy including The Unbelievable Truth and The Now Show, and sport coverage including rugby and cricket, were most popular for BBC iPlayer radio listening as usual. Content from BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend (24-26 May) also appeared in the top 20.
    Doctor Who, The Apprentice and The Voice dominated the top 10 TV episodes for May, with Waterloo Road and Russell Howard’s Good News following closely behind.

    Orange keeps confidence in CEO Richard
    June 18, 2013 10.09 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    The Orange group’s board of directors said it reaffirms its full confidence in its CEO Stéphane Richard.
    After a meeting on Monday, June 17, Richard presented his situation concerning the CDR-Tapie case on the potential consequences of this situation regarding the governance of the group.
    The Board has decided to reassert its “full confidence in Stéphane Richard and his ability to effectively meet the numerous challenges facing Orange with the same energy as ever in the best interests of the company, its employees, its customers and its shareholders.”
    In particular, the Board considers “that the legal measures affecting Stéphane Richard do not impede his ability to fully and effectively lead Orange as its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The Board will continue to ensure this remains the case in the future and has appointed Bernard Dufau, independent board member, to follow the situation.”
    Last week, Richard was taken into custody for questioning in the Tapie case.

    LG Electronics is bringing its 55-inch curved OLED TV to Europe tentavily before the end of the year. The set will first be available in the Netherlands.

    LG’s WRGB technology is a four-colour pixel system featuring a white sub-pixel, which works in conjunction with the conventional RGB setup to create preferred colour output.

    Liberty Global makes offer for Kabel Deutschland
    June 18, 2013 09.14 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Kabel Deutschland confirmed that it had received a preliminary takeover bid by Liberty Global.
    Financial Times said the offer values Kabel Deutschland’s equity at about EUR7.5 billion or EUR85 per share.
    This is substantially higher than Vodafone’s earlier bid for the German cable operator, who valued the company at EUR7.2 billion or EUR80 per share.
    According to local reports, the cabler rejected Vodafone’s bid.
    Liberty Global already owns and operates Unitymedia Kabel BW, which is active in the German states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Hessen and Baden Württemberg.
    LGI is the country’s second largest operator, after Ksbel Deutschland, and any deal involving the two cable operators would involve the German monopoly commission Bundeskartellamt.
    Vodafone is also active on the German telecoms market with mobile telephony and an IPTV service.

    Twelve piracy pay TV arrests in Greece and Cyprus
    June 18, 2013 08.28 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Twelve new arrests and seventeen sentences for piracy of pay TV signal in Greece and Cyprus.
    Continued efforts by the police electronic crime prosecution departments in Greece and Cyprus have resulted in twelve more cases involving piracy of pay TV satellite services. These were heard before the Public Prosecutor and criminal prosecutions have been initiated against the defendants.
    Since 2010, when the first judgments were pronounced for the piracy of pay TV signal in Greece, there have been 17 sentences in total. Sentences range from imprisonment of 6 months to 9 years and with corresponding monetary penalties of up to €32,000.
    The more recent sentence on June 7 this year constitutes a significant case, involving one of the largest criminal networks in Greece and with much heavier penalties being imposed. The defendant, who was distributing keys to decode pay TV services, was sentenced to 6 years’ imprisonment, a fine of €20,000, deprivation of civil rights for 3 years, confiscation and destruction of the seized material and forfeiture of a guarantee of €5,000. The court also judged that the lodge of an appeal will not be permitted in this case.
    The ever growing number of arrests by the police electronic crime prosecution departments of Greece and Cyprus for technical piracy and illegal trading of the pay TV signals demonstrates the seriousness with which the authorities now deal with the problem of the piracy of pay TV signal. It signifies also important developments in the legislative approach. Specifically, piracy of the pay TV signal now constitutes a felonious act, resulting in criminal prosecutions.
    “AAPA, congratulates the police electronic crime prosecution authorities in Greece and Cyprus for their continued successes with regard to the fight against piracy,” said Sheila Cassells, executive director of AAPA (Audio-Visual Anti-Piracy Alliance), in a statement.
    “The Greek courts are sending a very clear signal that piracy will not be tolerated, and, importantly, is a criminal offence likely to incur serious penalties. Consumers who resort to illegal sources for pay TV services should also understand the implications. AAPA and its members will continue to support the police authorities in their efforts to fight piracy.”

    EC approves CME/Time Warner deal
    June 18, 2013 06.57 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    The European Commission has approved the proposed takeover of Central European Media Enterprises (CME) by Time Warner.
    In a statement, it says that it “examined the effects of the proposed transaction on competition in the markets for the licensing of audio-visual TV content, the wholesale supply of TV channels, the sale of TV advertising, the licensing and distribution of films for theatrical release, and the licensing and distribution of home entertainment content in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia”, namely the six CEE markets CME is present in.
    Under EU Merger Regulation, the proposed transaction would in its view “not have negative effects on competition, since the activities of the parties are mainly complementary and not in direct competition with each other”.
    Time Warner currently holds a 49.9% stake in CME and the approval will give it voting rights proportionate to the stake.

    Telefónica denies AT&T's takeover rumours
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 18-06-2013
    News of an offer from AT&T to buy Telefónica for €70,000 million hit Spain's telecoms market yesterday, but the Spanish company and its shareholders have denied the rumours, while watching a 2% increase in Ibex 35 shares prices.
    Yesterday the newspaper El Mundo reported that the Government had stopped a public offer from AT&T to buy Telefónica. According to the Government, the US company could be looking to strengthen its position in the Latin American market as well as increase its presence in Europe.
    José Manuel Soria, Minister of Industry, explained that the American company has interests in Europe but he couldn't confirm that AT&T was considering buying Telefónica.
    Immediately after the rumours hit, Telefonica stated: "We have not received any contact from anyone in order to buy the company." The main shareholders of the company, the BBVA bank, reiterated this fact in an attempt to stop the news, which had already been spread worldwide.
    According to El Mundo, AT&T had offered €70,000 million for the company, but the Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy had personally halted the process because he considers Telefónica as being strategic for the country's economy.
