    Over four million Spanish families have pay-TV
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 18-06-2013
    The pay-TV business continues to grow in Spain despite the current financial crisis, with over four million families paying for TV by the end of 2012.
    According to the Observatorio Nacional de las Telecomunicaciones (ONTSI), which analyses the behaviour of the Spanish population with regard to the telecoms market, 23.4% of homes have a pay-TV service, while in 2012 the figure was 22.8%.
    Over 300,000 families signed up to a pay-TV contract during the past year. 3.8 million people signed contracts in 2011, increasing to 4.1 million in 2012. And more customers mean more business; profits in the pay-TV industry grew €100 million during past year to €1,213 million.
    The most popular type of pay-TV is cable, which reached 1.6 million homes in Q3 2012. ONO is leading the fibre market, followed by Movistar TV, Orange TV and Jazzbox. Euskaltel, Telecable and R are also offering cable TV in regional markets.
    Over 1.2 million houses have satellite TV, the second most used pay-TV platform. Canal+'s satellite services has the majority of customers as it has the widest offer plus exclusive Prisa TV channels. Satellite TV is especially strong in areas where fibre has not yet arrived, that is in more rural areas. Satellite TV also generates more revenue, with over 60% of the whole spend.
    IPTV platforms are still looking for stability in Spain. After hitting 930,000 homes in 2010 and decreasing to 768,000 in 2011, the numbers grew again in 2012 to 918,000 subscriptions.
    More viewers are choosing specialised channels, but the themed TV audience is still low, at around 5% during the first half of 2013.
    According to latest Barlovento Comunicación report, the favourite channels for Spanish viewers are Fox, Canal Hollywood, AXN and TNT.

    Over 60% of Argentinians use second screens
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 18-06-2013
    Over 60% of Internet-connected houses in Argentina use second screens, according to the latest research by Argentine consultancy firm Carrier y Asociados.
    This change in audience habits can be compared to the fact that in 2008 around 75% of connected houses had only one PC.
    PCs are still the most used device to watch online content (in around 80% of homes), while notebooks are owned by half of the connected households. Only 15% exclusively use a tablet to consume online content, but this device is present in 98% of homes which have another computer.
    Smart TVs are not considered in the report, but this technology has also been gaining importance in Argentinian homes during 2012 and the first half of 2013.
    The Carrier y Asociados report shows behaviour among the Internet users as being similar to that of those in other countries. Yet Argentina has seven million access points which don't even reach half of the population, according to latest Cisco report.

    Ex-Yahoo! exec forms social TV start-up focused on emerging markets
    Michelle Clancy | 18-06-2013
    Ahmed Nassef has left his role as Yahoo!'s vice president and managing director for Middle East and Africa to found Telfez, a Palo Alto-based start-up that will enable social TV experiences for consumers in high-growth emerging markets around the world.
    Nassef is co-founding the new company with Tamer Rashad, former managing director and head of Merrill Lynch Middle East & Africa.
    "Today, the Middle East and Africa region represents an inflection point for television viewership, skyrocketing growth in the penetration of smartphones and connected devices, and heavy social engagement," said Nassef. "When you combine all of this with the continued growth in both TV and digital advertising budgets, the opportunity is very exciting."
    He added: "Increasingly, the millions of TV viewers in places from Capetown and Casablanca to Dubai and Istanbul are watching TV while holding a mobile phone or tablet and connecting with friends on their favourite social platforms. Telfez will empower these users to share, discuss, and discover TV content in a way that's simple, intuitive and fun."
    Nassef is a digital pioneer who has led Yahoo!'s operations in the Middle East and Africa region. In less than four years, he was instrumental in taking Yahoo!'s audience in the Middle East from less than 20 million to more than 50 million while achieving double-digit revenue growth every year. Before Yahoo!, Nassef ran Maktoob.com, an Arabic language destination that was acquired by Yahoo! in November 2009, making it the region's biggest Internet acquisition to date. He was recently named by Communicate Magazine as one of the Middle East's top 20 most powerful media figures.
    "The pattern we see in emerging markets isn't that consumers are spending less time watching TV," Nassef continued. "In fact, people are watching their favourite shows and sports events on TV while also being engaged in multi-screen experiences. Broadcasters and advertisers need a way to connect those experiences for their viewers and consumers, and that's what Telfez will be all about."

    A third of US sports fans watch games on mobile
    Michelle Clancy | 18-06-2013
    A third of sports fans use smartphones to access sports content, and of those fans, 36% access sports content via their mobile device at least once per day. Also, a quarter of US sports fans are now using social networking platforms to follow sports.
    That's according to Sporting News Media's third annual survey into US sports media consumption, which found that the majority of social fans follow sports on Facebook (77%), followed by YouTube (47%) and Twitter (33%). However, while only 7% of fans say they use connected TV to consume sports, 19% believe connected TVs will have the biggest impact on the way they consume sports in the next two years.
    Despite the hype around second-screen viewing, the report found that 4% of fans believe that second-screen consumption of sports will have a big impact on the way sports is consumed in the next two years.
    "In a fragmented media landscape, it's important for us to understand where and how sports fans are engaging with content," said Sporting News Media president Jeff Price said. "It's interesting to follow news on the latest gadgets and apps to hit the market for fans, but for business stakeholders like sports publishers, marketers and of course leagues, it's crucial to find and engage fans at scale. This annual report helps provide a snapshot of the market and focus on what is of most interest to most fans."
    The survey also found that television continues to be used by almost all sports fans to follow sports, with 44% of fans watching sports in HD. Online consumption of sports remains the second most popular method, and it is now considerably ahead of print. Print and radio usage have both seen a decline in usage in the last two years.
    In the US, one in three online fans watch sports video highlights via PC and mobile. Live streaming and video highlights are the most popular types of content watched online, followed by news and interviews. News is the most sought after written content for fans that access sports content online and 35% of online fans access sports content via newspaper websites or apps.
    In surveying attitudes towards branding around sports, the study found that engaged sports fans are likely to spend more time consuming content across a variety of methods and are therefore more likely to be exposed to brands that sponsor or advertise around sports. 42% will also have a positive opinion about brands that sponsor or advertise around sports, leading to more interest, greater trust and an even higher propensity to purchase than all fans.

    Orange Board reasserts confidence in Stéphane Richard
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 18-06-2013
    Orange's board of directors has reasserted its full confidence into CEO Stéphane Richard despite his situation concerning the Crédit Lyonnais-Tapie case and the potential consequences of this on the governance of the group.
    The board has acknowledged 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".
    The board believes that the legal measures affecting Richard, who has been placed under investigation by the Paris Prosecutor, don't 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.

    Netflix scores largest original content deal to date with DreamWorks
    Michelle Clancy | 18-06-2013
    Netflix has inked its largest deal for original first-run content in its history with an agreement with DreamWorks Animation.
    DreamWorks will produce original series from the award-winning creators of global box office hits including the Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon franchises. It marks the first time DreamWorks' characters will be introduced into the television market as a branded collection of shows.
    The deal will encompass more than 300 hours of new programming, and is a cornerstone of a major initiative by DreamWorks Animation to greatly expand its television production and distribution worldwide. The new shows will be inspired by characters from DreamWorks Animation's hit franchises and upcoming feature films, as well as the vast Classic Media library, which DreamWorks acquired in 2012 and includes some of the most popular animated characters in history.
    With the first series expected to begin airing in 2014, Netflix will premiere these new DreamWorks Animation shows in all the territories in which it operates.
    "DreamWorks Animation is a valued partner in our global efforts to provide families with the most engaging stories delivered however, whenever and wherever they want," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. "This deal represents a major expansion of what's already a phenomenal relationship, allowing us to bring beloved DreamWorks characters to the 40 countries where Netflix operates and setting the stage for us to innovate together as we expand into new markets."
    "This is an unprecedented commitment to original content in the Internet television space," said DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg. "Netflix is a visionary company that continues to redefine the way audiences watch television and it is a thrill to add to their growing momentum."
    In February, Netflix and DreamWorks announced their first ever Netflix Original Series for kids based on the highly-anticipated film Turbo, premiering on 17 July. Turbo F.A.S.T, an episodic animated programme, which picks up with the speedy snail where the feature film left off, will be available in all Netflix territories beginning in December.
    In addition to character-based selections, the service displays rows of TV shows and movies organised by easy-to-understand genres such as superheroes, princesses, dinosaurs and girl power.
