    New sports channel for Slovakia
    June 19, 2013 07.03 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Slovakia’s Council for Broadcasting and Retransmission (RVR) has granted Slovak Sport a licence to operate a second channel.
    Local reports say Slovak Sport.TV2 will launch in a matter of weeks and its most attractive feature will be the Barclays Premier League, for which Slovak Sport has the rights in both Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
    Slovak Sport.TV2 will be available in both countries, while Slovak Sport’s first channel is expected to become a free service and only be distributed in Slovakia.
    Slovak Sport was launched in mid-2012 and filled a gap in the market following the earlier closure of the Slovak public broadcaster’s third channel STV3, which offered mostly sports programming.

    The Samsung Evolution
    June 19, 2013 10.29 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul, Digital Home World Summit 2013, London

    The idea of Samsung’s Evolution Kit came about due to customer requests, according to Vassilis Seferidis, director, European Business Development, Samsung Electronics.
    In a wide-ranging presentation about the Kit, which allows viewers to upgrade a number of Samsung 2012 smart TVs into 2013 models, he said that the 2013 smart hub consists of a new interactive UI with five windows, or ‘panels’, that are thematically arranged.
    ‘On TV’ simply shows what is on and next, along with five recommendations based on viewing history and day and time; Movie and TV, including VOD and N-Screen Experience, working on tablet and TV together; Photo Clips and Music; Social; and Apps.
    While 2012 Samsung smart TVs were command based, this year’s are command and natural language-based.
    Seferidis spoke about the cooperation between Samsung and TeliaSonera that has resulted in the first full IPTV service without a set-top box.
    The app is based on multicast rather than unicast technology and supports such services as VOD and catch-up.
    He was unable to provide a figure for the number of Evolutionary Kits sold to date and said that they are not a mass market product.
    As previously reported in Broadband TV News, the Kit has only recently been made available worldwide following its launch in South Korea in April.

    Polish ‘telco’ seizes digital home initiative
    June 19, 2013 10.46 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul, Digital Home World Summit 2013, London

    Poland’s Inea is enjoying 12% annual growth in its revenues and is on track to see them double between 2010 and 2016.
    This, according to Pawel Fecko, the company’s sales and customer care director, is in sharp contrast to the country’s telecom market as a whole, which is saturated and posting annual growth of only around 1%.
    Speaking in a presentation entitled Addressing future challenges for cablecos in the digital home, Fecko said that Inea currently has 170,00+ residential and 4,000+ business customers and is focused on the west of Poland.
    It wants to stay local and sees itself as a telco rather than cable operator.
    He identified non-telco revenue opportunities as cloud applications, financial services, e-health, energy and smart/secure home.
    Its strategy for the smart market looks at corporate customers, ‘smart city’ and residential customers.
    In the case of corporate customers he cited the example of a multi-branch hospital in which Inea is providing electronic data storage.
    ‘Smart City’ is meanwhile providing cable and wireless access to an entire city, and residential customers are given a range of services.
    In the latter case the problem is that customers still need time to understand the services.
    Indeed, in summary he said it is still not known how customers will react to new products offered by telcos. Inea must be fast in terms of product offer, not strategy.
    Fecko said that Inea is the leading provider of broadband services in the markets it is present in, with a share of 30-40%.
    It is an MVNO and has a WiMax network that it plans to upgrade to LTE technology.

    Ecuador approves controversial telecoms law
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 19-06-2013
    Ecuador has approved its new telecoms law after over three years of intense debate. The law establishes that 33% of frequency space will be for public broadcasting, 33% for private and 34% for community broadcasting.
    This division has generated strong criticism from the media, as 68% of TV stations and 83% of radio station are currently operated by private companies, with community initiatives being almost non-existent.
    The law also aims to control the country's media by creating various institutions to regulate programming and information. Always with a majority of members connected to the Government, these institutions will, for example, promote the broadcasting of national productions but also control the strict application of future laws for media politics.
    Another important part of the law is that the rectification of unproven information will be mandatory for the media. The correct information will have to be published within 72 hours and in the same programme which it originally featured. Breaking this rule will result in fines of 10% of the quarterly income of the company in question.
    Ecuador's private media have criticised the law, above all for not clearly specifying the competences of the new regulatory institutions – which the companies see as an attempt to establish more control over them – or making clear what will happen to the private signals after reducing their broadcasting space to the 33%.

    Orange jumps into LTE in Spain
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 19-06-2013
    Orange is to offer 4G services in some Spanish cities from the 8 July 2013.
    Following Vodafone, which was the first to offer LTE connections in the country, Orange has now published its strategy to compete in this field. Only Movistar has not revealed its rate plans yet, although it's expected to start offering 4G by the end of the month.
    During the first week of July, Orange LTE will be available in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Málaga, Sevilla and Murcia, with prices starting at €23.
    According to the company, Zaragoza, Bilbao, La Coruña, Palma de Mallorca, Las Palmas, Alicante, Córdoba, Valladolid and Vigo will also be covered before the end of the year. Orange points to 2014, when the radioelectric spectrum is expected to have more slots for 4G networks, as the year for expansion throughout the country.
    Vodafone's LTE has been operating in Spain's most populated cities since the end of May, and Yoigo has also announced its rate plans and its intention to start offering 4G from 18 July.
    Víctor Calvo-Sotelo, Spain's Secretary of State for Telecommunications, said he was pleased about the settling down of the 4G network and defended the new telecom law which "leaves more space for the expansion of new mobile technologies".

    Pay-TV rev growth stalls but satellite gets into higher orbit than cable
    Editor | 19-06-2013
    Combined DTH and DBS revenues will see satellite soar past cable, according to a new 97-country survey by Digital TV Research.
    Overall, the Digital TV World Revenue Forecasts report casts the gloomy conclusion that fast growth years for pay-TV are over, with annual growth in 2013 being round the 3% mark, falling to 2% by 2015. That said, it also predicts a lot of strong business to be done in this period with global pay-TV revenues, including subscription fees and on-demand movies and TV episodes, set to reach $203 billion in 2018, up by $19 billion on 2012.
    Total pay-TV revenues are likely to fall in 14 countries by the end of 2013, with revenues declining for 15 countries between 2012 and 2018. The bulk of the fast-growing nations will likely be in Africa, but the US will remain the world's largest pay-TV revenue earner but with revenues declining by $5.1 billion between 2012 and 2018 as homes convert to bundles and as competition forces down prices.
    The analyst predicts that satellite TV will account for 45.9% of total revenues by the end of 2013, rising to 47.6% by 2018. DTH revenues are expected to reach $97 billion in 2018, up from $83 billion in 2012, with the US remaining market leader, though its share of the total will fall from 43.5% in 2012 to 38.7% in 2018. Brazil is set to add the most DTH revenues ($3.5 billion) between 2012 and 2018. Fellow BRIC India is also expected to show strong growth, with its DTH revenues climbing by 135%, $2.2 billion in the same period.
    Despite huge activity in the European sector, not least through the aggressive acquisition spree by Liberty Global, cable's share is set to drop from 45.9% in 2013 to 40.7%. The data showed that global cable TV revenues peaked in 2012 at $86.9 billion, and will fall to $82.6 billion in 2018. Even though it calculates cable TV revenues will drop by $8.3 billion in the 2012-2018 period, the analyst believes that operators can gain extra revenues by converting subscribers to bundles.
    In the same time frame, Digital TV Research believes that IPTV will emerge as the fastest growing platform with revenues climbing from 7.5% in 2013 to 10.5% by 2018.

    Steady as she goes for BBC iPlayer
    Editor | 19-06-2013
    Even though the previous month's figures were buoyed by the funeral of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the BBC iPlayer has seen no let-up in demand for the catch-up player in May 2013.
    Indeed, according to data released by the BBC, there were 257 million BBC iPlayer requests for the month, not only equalling that of May but also revealing a consistent trend in terms of requests across PC, mobile, tablet and connected TV.
    The data also showed that average daily requests remained at just under eight million, and weekly requests were steady on 53 million. Doctor Who, The Apprentice and The Voice dominated the top ten TV episodes for May, with Waterloo Road and Russell Howard's Good News following closely behind.
    May was indeed the month of the status quo with the contribution made by different devices also remaining stable as did the amount of TV-only requests. Yet the proportion of requests for live TV programmes returned to a more usual 13% of requests.
