    Czechs opt for TV choice
    June 26, 2013 05.51 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Multichannel viewing is now the norm in the Czech Republic, with almost two-thirds (61.9%) of homes watching between 10-25 channels, according to data produced by Mediaresearch.
    A further one in five homes (19%) watch 51 or more channels, while at the other end of the scale only 0.6% watch between one and four channels.
    DTT services are received in over half (51.4%) of Czech homes and satellite TV in over one in four (26.1%).
    Cable and IPTV services are meanwhile watched in 20.6% and 1.9% of homes respectively.
    The research was carried out in the first quarter of this year.

    Spain´s TotalChannel launches Samsung app
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 26-06-2013
    It has only been two months since the official launch of online TV platform TotalChannel, but the Spanish company continues to delve into different fields, and is now launching an application for Samsung's smart devices.
    Users of the Korean producer's Smart TVs, Blu-ray and home cinema devices will have access to the 12 themed channels offered by TotalChannel. Around 120 different series and 100 movies are available through AXN, Calle 13, Cosmopolitan, National Geographic, SyFy and TNT – all in HD – as well as Paramount Comedy, Fox, Fox Crime, History Channel and Crime & Investigation.
    Apart from themed programming, the Smart TV application offers a catch-up service with the ability to record content on a virtual disk which will remain available for one week. As it´s an online platform, all the services are in the cloud so there is no need for a decoder or set-top box.
    The application also comes with a trial for TotalChannel. By downloading the app the customer gets 2.5 hours of access to the platform to use within one month.
    "In a difficult time for TV, new offers like the one from TotalChannel open a different world for the customer," explained Miguel Angel Ruiz, services manager for digital contents of Samsung Spain.

    US Ultra HD first as Intelsat, Ericsson demo end-to-end 4KTV transmission
    Editor | 26-06-2013
    The Ultra HD momentum continues as satellite services provider Intelsat and Ericsson have revealed the demonstration of what they call a 'true' 4K Ultra HD, end-to-end video transmission to Turner Broadcasting.
    Intelsat's Galaxy 13 satellite delivered a 4:2:2 10-bit, 4K Ultra HD 100Mbps video feed at 60 frames per second, encoded and decoded in real time by Ericsson, using its AVP 2000 contribution encoders and RX8200 receivers. Newtec provided the modulation and demodulation hardware, featuring Clean Channel Technology, and the satellite downlink antenna was provided by Turner Broadcasting.
    Intelsat and Ericsson say that the demonstration, the first transmission of an Ultra HD signal over satellite in North America, proves that a satellite delivery chain can accommodate the next-generation signals as soon as broadcasters are ready to offer them.
    "4K UHD is the next evolutionary step for television broadcasting, and just as Intelsat supported the smooth transition from SD to HD, so too will we be ready to support the transition to full-time distribution in this new format," said Peter Ostapiuk, Intelsat's vice president of media product management.
    "We are tremendously pleased with the outcome of today's demonstration," added Ericsson's head of TV compression business Giles Wilson. "It shows what is feasible in terms of meeting consumer demand for the highest quality possible. Demonstrations such as this show operators that it is possible to start building the necessary ecosystem and a library of Ultra HD TV content now as the industry readies itself for the roll-out of commercial services in the coming years. Ericsson has always been a pioneer of next-generation compression systems, and we are pleased to have worked with Intelsat to lead the way for Ultra HD TV over satellite."

    multithek launches OTT TV live streams
    Jörn Krieger | 26-06-2013
    German transmitter network operator Media Broadcast has added the first conventional TV channels as live streams to its hybrid DTT media portal multithek: Anixe TV, Bloomberg TV, 1-2-3.tv and Juwelo TV are the initial services, with others to follow.
    In Berlin and its surroundings, the regional channel Alex TV is also offered. So far, multithek only contained on-demand services like TV broadcasters' catch-up portals, multimedia services complementing TV programmes and Web TV channels.
    The linear channels appear on the TV set like a service received via DTT, but get to the screen in over-the-top (OTT) mode through the Internet. For reception, viewers need a TV set with an integrated DVB-T tuner or a DVB-T set-top box compliant with interactive multimedia standard HbbTV and connected to the Internet.
    Media Broadcast currently offers the multithek, which launched on 20 February 2013, in the large urban areas of Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Hannover, Braunschweig, the Rhine Main area (Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Mainz), Saarland, Munich and Stuttgart, as well as parts of North-Rhine Westphalia. The free-of-charge service will also be available via cable and satellite in future.

    France 2 and M6 catch-up services get thumbs up
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 26-06-2013
    According to the latest survey from catch-up TV website TV-replay.fr, France 2 and M6's catch-up services are both working well in terms of offerings on PCs.
    Both channels have already made 91% of their programming that airs between 5pm and 12am available via catch-up. France 5 offers 90%, followed by TF1 and France 3 with 87%.
    However, the six newly-launched DTT HD channels are not as advanced as these leading channels. The percentage of programmes available via catch-up ranges from between 11% for HD1 (TF1) and 46% for 6ter (M6). All these channels have integrated a replay service since launching in December 2012.
    The programmes offered by the older DTT channels (W9, TMC, D8, Gulli, etc) falls between 19% (TMC, TF1) and 67% (NRJ 12).

    Imported dramas lose $1BN in value for Euro broadcasters
    Editor | 26-06-2013
    In a further blow to cash-strapped businesses across the region, and calling investment into question, the value of European broadcasters' imported drama has plummeted by a billion dollars since 2008.
    According to a joint research project, Imported Drama Series In Europe — from Essential Television Statistics, Madigan Cluff and Digital TV Research — the value of imported drama series for European broadcasters was $5.4 billion at the end of 2012, a whopping 16% fall on the figure in 2008.
    What makes the figures even worse reading is the associated fall in the average value per hour of drama. In 2008, 160,950 hours of drama were broadcast in Europe drawing an average value of $39,929 per hour. Fast forward to the end of 2012 and this was 157,606 hours, down just 2% on 2008, with an average value of £34,290, a tumble of 14% since 2008.
    The analysts believe that the bulk of the fall can be attributed to lower income generated by advertising and state garments/licence fees as Europe reeled from the credit crunch as well as the ongoing general economic malaise, seen notably in the Euro countries' crises. The remainder of the drop appears to have originated from a combination of cash-strapped channels cutting the easiest external costs and the longer term gradual movement of hours out of the high share channels and into secondary channels.
    Italy was the top country by value created from imported drama series in 2012, closely followed by Germany. France was third. However, the UK way behind as few imported dramas are aired on the main channels. Italy, Germany and France generated 55% of Europe's total in 2012.

    Social media driving repeat views but fails to draw new audiences
    Editor | 26-06-2013
    An intriguing new survey by the Council for Research Excellence (CRE) has cast doubt on social media's ability to draw new or infrequent viewers even though it is one of the most effective ways to encourage ongoing engagement.
    The Council for Research Excellence (CRE) is an independent research group created in 2005 and funded by Nielsen. Its members include ABC, AMC Networks, CBS, Comcast, Cox, Discovery, Disney, GroupM, Horizon Media, Hulu LLC, Kimberly-Clark, LIN Media, Magna Global, NAB, NBC Universal, News Corp, Scripps Networks, Time Warner, Tribune Co, Twitter, Univision and Viacom.
    The Talking Social TV study revealed that infrequent viewers are mainly influenced by off-line word-of-mouth, which can be five to ten times as effective as social media in reaching these potential viewers. Conversely, TV show promos were found potentially to be a distraction for regular viewers, repeaters in the nomenclature.
    Fundamentally the CRE believed that demographics play a more important role than programme genre in explaining the role of social media on TV viewing. By genre, social media was found to play a stronger role for genres such as reality, sports and talk shows.
    The survey also showed that for repeaters, the first encounters with offline word-of-mouth, or a one-to-one electronic communication such as an email or text, or a social-media communication, are related to higher viewing, while subsequent communications can have diminishing returns. For repeaters, those receiving an initial social media message were found more likely to watch a show by one percentage point, with diminishing returns after each additional exposure to a social media message.
    For infrequent viewers, social media and show promos were found to be less related to high viewing than offline word-of-mouth, which in the survey peaked at a four-percentage-point increase in the likelihood of sampling the show. More than five social media exposures are needed to obtain the same one-percentage-point lift as one offline word-of-mouth exposure for these infrequent viewers. This, the CRE inferred, suggested social media plays a role in encouraging sampling, but a smaller one.
    "Our 'Talking Social TV' study found social media incrementally influential in drawing viewers to new shows as opposed to existing shows," noted Beth Rockwood, senior vice president, market resources, Discovery Communications, who chairs the CRE's Social Media Committee. "These latest findings suggest social media may have a stronger role in building relationships with a show for existing viewers than in drawing newer viewers to that show. If programmers already have a regular viewer watching their show, they can engage them further."

    UKTV signs first on-demand deal with YouView
    Editor | 26-06-2013
    In a deal with a lot of firsts and indeed win-wins, UKTV has signed its first direct agreement with YouView to provide seven-day catch-up services for its free-to-air channels.
    Under the terms of a deal marking the first time UKTV has offered a catch-up service that is purpose-built for TV, the gradually maturing subscription free on-demand and catch-up TV will now offer the Dave, Yesterday and Really channels.
    Men's channel Dave will be first to show with in July 2012 with programming accessible through a specially-branded on-demand portal and through YouView's scroll back programme guide. YouView catch-up services for Yesterday and Really will launch by the end of the year.
    This is the first time that UKTV will provide a service to viewers directly through YouView and comes at a time that it is seeing what it says is "significant" growth across the network. Indeed UKTV claims to have been the fastest growing commercial broadcaster in Britain in 2012 and currently reaches over 42 million viewers a month.
    "The UKTV network and this agreement with YouView will make our award-winning programmes and channel brands available to even more viewers," commented UKTV's CEO, Darren Childs. "Providing a catch-up service for our free-to-air channels on YouView is an important step for us, ensuring we give viewers the 'anytime, anywhere' access to our channels and programming that they want."
    YouView CEO Richard Halton added: "We are pleased to welcome UKTV to our collection of on-demand TV players. YouView is currently the fastest growing TV platform in the UK, and we know that offering quality on-demand content from iconic channels such as Dave, Really and Yesterday is key to giving our customers a great TV experience and makes our scroll back programme guide even more compelling."
    The UKTV YouView app was developed by second screen, connected TV and TV everywhere specialist Capablue, using its Connected platform which has been implemented with Marlin DRM, the open-standard content protection system for YouView's consumer devices and services.
