    TVP makes record profit
    June 24, 2013 07.40 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    The Polish public broadcaster TVP has made a strong start to 2013 financially, posting a record profit of PLN8.8 million (€2.02 million) in the first five months of the year.
    Revenues from subscription fees in May amounted to PLN19.9 million, or PLN3.5 million more than planned and compared to PLN14.2 million in the same period last year.
    Subscription fees in the first five months of the year were meanwhile PLN34.7 million, or 24%, higher than in the first five months of 2012.
    Although ad revenues over the same period were PLN44.5 million, or 10.8%, lower than a year earlier due to the recession in the ad market, income from other sources rose by around PLN11 million, or 23.8%.
    Meanwhile, operating expenses were reduced by PLN51.5 million and were PLN5.4 million less than planned for in the first five months of this year.
    TVP notes that it expects this positive financial performance, brought about by “tough decision” in restructuring, to be also reflect in its half and full year results.
    It also says that savings in programming are making its task more difficult.

    Bulgarian station sold
    June 24, 2013 07.11 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    The Bulgarian TV station Channel 3 has found itself under new ownership from the start of this week.
    According to Capital, it is now backed by Media Investment Organisation (MIO), which has paid BNG1 million (€509,000) for the company.
    Channel 3 was formerly owned by Elite Media Bulgaria, in which the partners were Velichko Naydenov and Nikolay Vochev.
    It posted revenues of BNG2.2 million in 2012, or 0.5% more than a year earlier, while its profits amounted to BNG187,000.
    MIO was itself founded this April, though negotiations about the sale of Channel 3 had been going on since November last year.
    Channel 3, which offers mostly live, news-based programming, has been on air since 1993.

    EBU welcomes Greek court ruling
    June 24, 2013 06.57 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has welcomed the confirmation by the Council of State, the highest court in Greece, that public broadcaster ERT should be put back on air.
    The association of Europe’s public broadcasters urged all stakeholders to respect the decision of the court and work together to put ERT back on air.
    EBU President, Jean-Paul Philippot said: “we are impressed by reports that the Government now intends to put a temporary public service broadcasting system in place within a matter of days – hiring a substantial number of temporary staff. This will be a huge task. Therefore we appreciate that the Court will oversee the Government’s compliance with the order.”
    Philippot said the EBU recognised the importance of change and that broadcasters should adapt to financial, technological and political realities.
    The EBU said it was prepared to assist in the establishment of a permanent public service broadcaster in Greece

    Vodafone prepares to take KDG
    June 24, 2013 06.45 Europe/London By Julian Clover and Robert Briel

    UPDATED. A €7.7 billion offer looks set to secure Kabel Deutschland (KDG) for the British telco Vodafone.
    In a statement, Kabel Deutschland has said that it welcomes the announced tender offer from Vodafone. The management board “considers the price proposed by Vodafone attractive for shareholders and intends to recommend the offer. In the Management Board’s opinion the offer adequately reflects both the strategic value of Kabel Deutschland to Vodafone and the company’s growth prospects.”
    In their talks, the parties agreed that the market position of Kabel Deutschland and the range of services it offers will be strengthened by the combination with Vodafone. Within Vodafone Group, Kabel Deutschland will remain a separate legal entity with its headquarters in Unterfoehring (near Munich). Under the Business Combination Agreement, Kabel Deutschland’s management will be responsible in the future for the entire fixed line business with retail customers of Vodafone in Germany, including product development and marketing in that segment. Housing association customers will continue to be served as before by Kabel Deutschland.
    Welcoming today’s announcement by Vodafone, CEO Adrian von Hammerstein said: “Kabel Deutschland and Vodafone are an ideal fit. Together, we have the opportunity to become Germany’s leading telecommunications and television provider and to create what for the German market is a unique, winning combination of fixed line and mobile communications.”
    Tony Ball, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Kabel Deutschland, added: “The company is now poised for further growth as a hub for next-generation broadband and content distribution, extending Vodafone’s proven capabilities in mobile networks.”
    Reuters reported Sunday that the revised offer of €87 per share was tabled over the weekend, considerable higher than its opening €80 bid.
    Vodafone has been looking at ways of developing a triple play offer since the stuttering start of its own IPTV service.
    The move will come as a blow to the ambitions of Liberty Global, the owner of Germany’s second largest cablenet Unitymedia KabelBW, and which placed its own offer of €85 per share.
    It now seems unlikely that the price for Germany’s cable giant, formed from the break up of Deutsche Telekom’s cable interests, will touch the €100 per share suggested by some analysts.
    Kabel Deutschland serves 8.5 million subscribers and has 3,500 employees.
    In light of the latest developments, publication of the financial results for the financial year 2013, which Kabel Deutschland had originally planned for 27 June 2013, has been brought forward to today, Monday June 24.

    No Belgacom TV deal for ARD/ZDF
    June 24, 2013 06.31 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Despite political pressure to keep the two main German public broadcasters ARD and ZDF on the Belgacom IPTV platform, no agreement could be reached to continue carriage.
    Belgacom has decided to keep to its decision to drop the two channels, said spokesperson Jan Margot to VRT Nieuws. The broadcasters doubled the amount Belgacom has to pay to carry ARD and ZDF from EUR500,000 to EUR1 million.
    Cable operators Telenet in Flanders and VOO in French speaking Belgium continue to carry the two channels on their network.
    According to the VRT newscast, the demand for satellite dishes hs grown as a result of the Belgacom move. All German public and private broadcasters are available as free-to-air signals on the Astra satellite at 19.2 degrees East

    Kabel Deutschland agrees to takeover by Vodafone
    Jörn Krieger | 24-06-2013
    Germany's largest cable company Kabel Deutschland has given its consent to an acquisition by UK-based mobile network operator Vodafone.
    "Kabel Deutschland and Vodafone are an ideal fit," Adrian von Hammerstein, CEO of Kabel Deutschland, said in Munich. "Together, we have the opportunity to become Germany's leading telecommunications and television provider and create what for the German market is a unique, winning combination of fixed line and mobile communications."
    Vodafone has officially offered €87 per Kabel Deutschland share – considerably more than the €80 to €82 that was apparently proposed in the first approach. The bid puts Kabel Deutschland's total value at around €10.7 billion including debts. The valuation of €87 per share represents an increase of 37% on the share price of 12 February 2013, the last trading day before speculation of a takeover first emerged.
    Kabel Deutschland and Vodafone have already signed a business combination agreement which has been approved by the responsible boards. The management board of Kabel Deutschland considers the price proposed by Vodafone to be attractive for shareholders and intends recommending them to accept the offer. Within the Vodafone group, Kabel Deutschland will remain a separate legal entity with its headquarters in Unterföhring near Munich.
    It remains to be seen whether Liberty Global will challenge Vodafone's offer through a counter-bid. The US media company, which also had its eye on Kabel Deutschland, is thought to have offered the cable operator's shareholders €85 per share in its recent approach.
    The management and supervisory board of Kabel Deutschland are likely to favour an acquisition by Vodafone not least because the chances for approval by the cartel bodies are considerably higher. Liberty Global already owns Germany's second-largest cable operator Unitymedia Kabel BW so a green light for such a market concentration would, if given at all, probably be subject to strict concessions.

    Sundance to launch dedicated feed in Poland
    Editor | 24-06-2013
    Aiming to support what the Robert Redford-founded channel calls "explosive growth across the market", AMC/Sundance Channel Global is to launch a dedicated feed for the Polish market.
    Previously available as part of Sundance Channel's regional feed in Eastern Europe, the new tailored feed will be available on the Eutelsat Hot Bird 13C satellite starting 1 July as a 24/7 linear network in high definition, and will feature a selection of first run original drama and other programming along with independent films and documentaries.
    The network is available on the three leading DTH platforms in the region as well as eight of the top ten cable systems, including Cyfrowy Polsat, NC+, Orange, UPC Poland, TOYA, Multimedia Polska and other operators. Once established, Sundance Channel Polska will subsequently cater specifically to local audiences via Polish language on-air promos, versioned programming and grassroots promotions. The transition to a fully dedicated feed will begin this year and reach completion in the early part of 2014.
    "Poland continues to be one of the most important growth markets for Sundance Channel across
    Europe," commented Marco Frazier, VP global distribution, AMC/Sundance Channel Global. "We are excited to launch a tailored feed that will enable us to offer even more relevant programming and promotions locally. This development demonstrates our long-term commitment to providing high quality, independent-minded entertainment to audiences in Poland."
    Today's news follows a spate of distribution deals for Sundance Channel across Europe and Asia over the past few months including network launches in Belgium, France and the Philippines. Earlier in June 2013, the AMC/Sundance Channel Global inked a distribution deal with DirecTV Latin America to launch Sundance Channel in the region.

    NRK tunes up for more Mosart in news studios
    Editor | 24-06-2013
    In a significant expansion of its news operations, Norway's largest broadcaster NRK is extending its deployment of Mosart to enable newscast automation.
    On completion of the project, all NRK facilities will have the same control options, and, hopefully, agile operation, as the broadcaster's main studios in Oslo. Intriguingly, software supplier Mosart Medialab is a subsidiary of TV 2 Norway, NRK's main rival.
    The upgrade will see Mosart rolled out from three central systems to 12 of NRK's regional news studios plus an additional central system. The installation of Mosart automation across NRK regional sites will start in Stavanger in October 2013 and continue in Bodø in November, with Bergen following, and the rest of the sites scheduled to be finished in 2014.
    Across the estate, Mosart will see use in simplifying control tasks within the news production chain, with, said the software's developer, the added benefit of giving operators efficient control and freeing specialised staff members to focus on enhancing the overall look and feel of the broadcast.
    Mosart will interface with NRK's ENPS newsroom computer system story control to transform its rundowns into Mosart automation scripts to enable news production with just two operators in the gallery. Equally attractive to NRK is the way in which Mosart automation can allow such operators to perform on-the-fly editing of headlines and to insert breaking news into the running order. The option to employ a touch-screen GUI will further streamline gallery operations.
    "We have worked with Mosart automation in-house for about four years, so when the Mosart tender met our specifications and proved to be the best buy, the choice to roll it out across all of our sites was easy," explained Egil Johan Damm, project manager for NRK. "In doing so, we not only benefit from the solution's flexibility and interoperability, but we also achieve a standardisation of news playout that will simplify support and the movement of staff among sites."

    TVE to launch children's programming in English
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 24-06-2013
    The Spanish public channel TVE will offer a number of children's programmes in English every day from September.
    The move is long-awaited in Spain, where it is almost impossible to watch TV in any other language than Spanish.
    At the same time that the channel has decided to diversify to offer educational content, it is also thinking about the return of advertisements, which now seems likely to happen.
    The major competitor of TVE´s DTT children's channel Clan TV is Boing, which usually tops the audience figures thanks to broadcasting all the Cartoon Network's content.
    Let´s Clan, the new programmes´ slot, has been designed with the help of the British Council and, according to the company, aims to help children get accustomed to English in a natural way and also educate them about the dual DTT system, which allows viewers to watch TV in the original language.
    Some of TVE's original content will be dubbed in English.
    Let´s Clan will also include a special programme based on a method for learning English and have a new slot for the channel´s stars, Los Lunnies.

    Prisa to focus on Latin American market
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 24-06-2013
    Spanish media group Prisa is to centre the majority of its financial operations in Latin America over the next few years.
    Spain´s financial crisis has seriously affected the advertising market and Prisa has suffered serious losses, but the company seems to have found a solution in the Latin American market.
    Juan Luis Cebrian, Prisa´s CEO, outlined this new operational target during the company's shareholders meeting on Saturday. Cebrian said that the radio stations in the region will generate around 60% of Prisa´s income in 2013. The company will also contribute Brazil's e-learning project and launch a Portuguese digital edition of El Pais.
    The refinancing of the group´s debt has been foremost in the mind of the company, which seems to have forgotten about the TV sector. Very vague information about the company's future activities in the audiovisual field was given, and the sale of Canal+ was neither confirmed nor denied.
    The VOD platforms Yomvi and iPlus will be focused on in future, as well as simplifying the offer and fighting piracy, according to the Prisa-owned newspaper El Pais.
    Regarding its debt, the company continues to wait for the recovery of the business. An extra €80 million loan will be secured within the next few months, but its creditors are being strict with Prisa when it comes to borrowing more money.
