    Zeebox adds personalised, social and mood-based content discovery
    Michelle Clancy | 01-07-2013
    Comcast-backed second-screen app zeebox is adding Digitalsmiths Seamless Discovery to enable personalised search, social, mood and sports discovery, as well as recommendations, for content.
    Customisable suggestions depending on individual viewing activities are offered by the recently introduced Recommended for You feature inside the zeebox application. Users can determine associated content, which is comparable to the shows that have been viewed, using the Similar Shows feature.
    "Our users tell us that programme discovery is a key use for second-screen applications," said Anthony Rose, co-founder and CTO of zeebox. "People love the zeebox programme guide, but scrolling through a list of 150 channels is not the future. What you want is a small set of programme recommendations, just for you, that you can watch right now. Our new personalised recommendation system offers that, based on your viewing history, likes and more. We look to evolve zeebox further over the coming months to be your perfect personalised programme discovery application."
    zeebox gives its customers the option to find out what the most popular shows are on TV, and check out what their friends, celebrities and the Twitterverse consider to be hot on TV. Users of zeebox also have the option to follow what shows their favourite celebrities are watching and get special access to watch exclusive content to top shows, as well as to buy products from the broadcast. zeebox also allows broadcasters to offer synchronised polls, quizzes, trivia and other interactive widgets directly to fans.
    "With the amount of content choices and navigation options available, TV viewers increasingly expect more personalised experiences," said Ben Weinberger, CEO and co-founder of Digitalsmiths. "By leveraging key features of our Seamless Discovery platform, zeebox users receive even greater personalization and relevance to an already compelling and immersive TV experience."

    Cgates upgrades TV interface with CubiTV middleware
    Michelle Clancy | 01-07-2013
    Cgates, a cable TV provider in Lithuania, is integrating the CubiTV middleware to add advanced television features to its offer. The move is an effort to support its legacy services while rolling out new features that bolster viewer engagement.
    CubiTV features an intuitive interface to allow subscribers to navigate advanced pay-TV functionality. It also includes a graphics rendering engine that delivers fast, sleek menus and programme guides with high quality animation, transitions and effects. STB versions of CubiTV can be deployed on both modern and legacy devices, thereby minimising the need for hardware replacement.
    The user Interface of the CubiTV client will be customised to meet the specific requirements of Cgates subscribers.
    Jointly owned by Advanced Broadband and SEB Venture Capital, Vilnius-based Cgates serves more than 500,000 consumers across the country, providing analogue and digital TV, Internet and telephony via a fibre-optic network. Cgates will deploy the CubiTV hybrid middleware client and will also utilise a CubiTV portal server to support interactive services.
    "The Cubiware platform gives us the versatility to serve customers at all points in the market, from basic linear TV to advanced interactive features," says Paulius Dambrauskas, CEO of Cgates. "And Cubiware's technical flexibility means that we can easily adapt to our subscriber's changing requirements as they develop. We are not forced to leave our less adventurous customers behind even as we bring more advanced capabilities to those who want the latest technology. So with one CubiTV platform we are able to meet many different needs, which makes life easier for everyone."
    With the Cgates agreement, Cubiware has now been adopted by pay-TV operators in each of the Baltic countries.
    "Cubiware is very pleased to be working with Cgates to enhance the experience of pay-TV viewers in Lithuania," says Jakub Górski, CEO of Cubiware, in a statement. "This latest adoption of the Cubiware platform follows numerous other recent agreements — some in nearby countries such as Finland, Estonia, and Latvia, and others in regions further afield, such as Latin Americas and Asia. So clearly word is getting out that CubiTV combines power and efficiency with a simple, user-friendly interface, making it the ideal middleware solution across a wide variety of pay-TV deployments."

    "TWC TV is a significant addition to Xbox 360, bringing our customers their favourite entertainment in one place — enhanced TV experience, games, movies, music, sports and entertainment apps," said Blair Westlake, corporate vice president of the media and entertainment group at Microsoft. "Our partnership with TWC enhances all that is available on Xbox 360 today, which will we continue expand. We're thrilled to offer TWC TV to US Xbox Live members and Time Warner Cable subscribers."

    Xbox 360 offers more than 120 voice-controlled apps, and Microsoft said that it plans to deliver "new entertainment experiences" with Xbox One launching later this year, which will allow users to instantly switch from watching live TV to playing a game with the sound of one's voice.

    Catch-up TV holds fifth of UK viewing
    July 1, 2013 09.30 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    A survey by YouView says that catch-up and on demand viewing now accounts for six hours of TV use in the typical week.
    The PSB-telco broadband service, celebrating its first birthday this month, says the typical Briton records a total of nine-hours television a week.
    Catch-up TV services, such as the BBC iPlayer and ITV Player, now take a fifth of the UK’s viewing time.
    The study of more than 2,000 people, carried out by YouGov, found that while the average home records around 10 programmes in a typical week, they delete four of those on average without watching them – with entertainment the mostly likely (36%) to be binned followed by films (32%) and documentaries (32%).
    Three-quarters (77%) of those questioned still use their main TV the most, the average home now has four different devices (including their main TV) on which they can watch TV, which is just over double the number they had five years ago. However, this rises to an average of six devices for the 18-24 year olds questioned.
    Steve Conway, head of marketing, YouView said, “Television is a huge part of British life but we know the way people view it is changing beyond all recognition. What is becoming important to TV fans is being able to watch what they want, whenever they want it and this research supports that.”
    The research also found that across the country, alongside their TV, 57% of those questioned said they use their computer to watch television content, 14% do so through a games console like the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 and 25% access TV on a tablet with iPad and iPad mini the favourite at 19% vs. 6% for Android models.
    Spending on subscription TV services has also increased by around 40% in five years with the average household monthly payment now £29.89. Nearly a quarter (23%) spend more than £50 per month. TV-related downloads also account for £1.56 per month from iTunes or the Google Play Store, with men spending £2.03 versus £1.13 for women.

    Akado sale still distant prospect
    July 1, 2013 09.27 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    The Russian cable operator Akado is now estimated to be worth around $700-830 million (€538-638 million), rather than the $1.2 billion suggested three years ago.
    Furthermore, reports Kommersant, the current figure includes debts totaling $390 million.
    Akado has been on the market for three years, during which time it has attracted interest from a number of parties, with the main stumbling block being price.
    Svyazinvest, for instance, assessed its value as $1.2 billion in 2010, while MegaFon suggested a figure of $900 million the following year.
    More recently, MTS, Transtelekom and ER Telecom have showed interest in Akado.
    Akado is the leading provider of pay-TV services in Moscow and the third leading provider of internet access, with market shares of 34% and 20% respectively.
    It is currently owned by Renova (67%) and Yuri Pripachkin (33%).
