    Deal nears as Hulu weighs bids from DirecTV, AT&T
    Parent Category: News | 10-07-2013
    Hulu could soon have a new owner: the deadline for final offers to buy the company wrapped up last week, and the online TV company has received binding bids from DirecTV, a partnership of AT&T and the Chernin Group and the team of Guggenheim Digital Media and KKR, according to the Wall Street Journal.
    The WSJreported that, according to people familiar with the matter, a deal could come in the next week or two if the offers are right. Hulu's owners — Big Media titans Fox and Disney (a third owner, Comcast, has no oversight) — are hoping to get at least $1 billion for the company. Reports have bids coming in at half that, however.
    Hulu, whose founding CEO Jason Kilar left earlier in the year, charges $8 per month per Hulu Plus subscriber — and there are about four million of them. It also has an ad-supported free service. In all, in 2012 the company grew revenue 65% to almost $700 million.
    DirecTV and AT&T could both leverage Hulu to bolster their TV everywhere strategy, or to counter Verizon's over-the-top (OTT) gambit with Coinstar, the Redbox Instant by Verizon streaming service, which recently launched and will extend to the Roku platform this summer.
    Meanwhile, the Chernin Group, an investment and media company run by former News Corp COO Peter Chernin, offers AT&T benefits that extend past the finances and shared risk: Chernin helped guide the creation of Hulu under the News Corp auspices and is intimately familiar with the streaming business.
    Hulu will likely pull the plug on a sale if the offers don't meet the $1 billion threshold. A plan B also exists in the form of Time Warner Cable, according to Bloomberg, which is willing to become a fourth investor in the company.

    Large-screen TVs bolster US display market
    Michelle Clancy | 10-07-2013
    When it comes to TV sets, Americans are going large: an uptick in sales for bigger, higher-priced sets means that revenue for the US television market is expected to remain flat in 2013, despite a significant decline in unit shipments.
    According to IHS, US television revenue will amount to $28.2 billion in 2013, almost unchanged from $28.1 billion in 2012. Meanwhile, shipments this year are expected to decline by 4% to 36 million, down from 37.5 million in 2012.
    "With the flat-panel-replacement wave fading further into history, the US television market is undergoing a long-term slowdown in unit shipments," said Veronica Thayer, analyst for consumer electronics and technology at IHS. "However, market revenue in 2012 and 2013 is expected to hold steady as shipments of larger-sized, more feature-rich and higher priced sets continue to increase."
    Illustrating this trend, shipments of liquid-crystal display televisions (LCD TVs) sized 55-59" are expected to surpass those in the 45-49" category in 2013 for the first time ever this year.
    There is also an increase in the average selling price (ASP) of all TVs at play. US television ASP is expected to rise 5% to reach $783 in 2013, up from $749 in 2012.
    LCD TVs in the 55-59" size range are expected to account for 10.2% of US television shipments in 2013, up from 9.6% in 2012. In comparison, sets ranging from 45-49" will decline to 8.3% of the market, down from 11.7%. By 2018, the 55-59" segment will rise to 13.0% of total US LCD TVs.
    Meanwhile, shipments of 60" and larger LCD TVs this year will make up 9.6%, up from 6.6% in 2012. This trend is expected to continue, with the shipment of such sets climbing to represent 12% of the market in 2018. In terms of revenue, growth will be even bigger, increasing to 35% in 2018, up from 18% in 2012.
    LED backlighting technology in 2013 is forecast to increase to 28.9 million units, accounting for a total of 84% of the US LCD TV market. This is up 48% from a total of 19.4 million LED-backlit TVs in 2012.
    Meanwhile, the US market for older cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL)-backlit sets is in rapid decline, with share for such TVs anticipated to drop to nearly zero in 2016.
    "LED TVs have been a big consumer hit, marketed on the basis of being eco-friendly and with better image quality," observed Thayer. "Meanwhile, the price differential between CCFL- and LED-backlit sets in smaller sizes has dwindled down."

    TV middleware rebounds with demand for advanced functionality
    Michelle Clancy | 10-07-2013
    Advanced guide software, metadata needs and technologies underlying DVR and video-on-demand (VOD) have driven the growth of the traditional TV middleware market, which was relatively flat between 2010 and 2011.
    In 2012 the market grew 11% to reach $1.13 billion, according to research from ABI. In turn, leaders in the space could soon be acquisition targets.
    During this period, more advanced forms of video software grew over 40% to reach $890 million.
    Companies succeeding within the guide business include TiVo, Rovi and ActiveVideo. "TiVo has been the most aggressive with multiscreen technology development while Rovi brings together the complex metadata challenge with guide experiences," said Sam Rosen, practice director at ABI Research. "ActiveVideo's technology is very operational in nature, enabling operators to cost-effectively bring their technologies to legacy set-top boxes."
    TiVo recently settled most of its pending litigation, including that with Cisco, Motorola Home (now ARRIS) and Time Warner Cable. All of these companies have managed both product licensing and patent portfolios to achieve their growth during this period.
    "Now that pricing of the IP portfolio is largely settled, and the market has digested the ARRIS-Motorola acquisition and pending Ericsson-Mediaroom acquisition, we expect these companies to be the next targets," added Rosen.

    Parent Category: News | 10-07-2013
    Manchester United fans worldwide will be able to watch defender Rio Ferdinand's testimonial match live following an online deal was reached between the UK's BT Sport and Streamworks International.

    The testimonial precedes by two days the Community Shield, the traditional prelude to the English football season, when Premier League champions Manchester United play FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic.

"It is going to be a fantastic and fun evening and there will be famous sporting faces and celebrities popping up all over the place, so it should be an incredible night."
    In addition to his year's contract extension at Old Trafford to see him through the 2013-2014 football season, Ferdinand has signed a three-year deal with BT Sport to 'support the channels as an interviewer, programme-maker and football expert'.
    Simon Green, head of BT Sport, added: "We are delighted to be associated with a huge star like Rio in all the different ways he is featuring on BT Sport and we are thrilled that his testimonial is going to be live on BT Sport.
    "To mark this special occasion, we've put together a groundbreaking plan to help make this game available to millions of fans across the globe, and it is something of a technology first for a game to be streamed live on this scale."

Live football from Germany, Italy, France, Brazil, Australia and the USA, plus action from the FA Women's Super League and the English Football Conference, will also be on BT Sports roster.

    France drops Internet access cut-off
    Parent Category: News | 10-07-2013
    The French Minister of Culture and Communications Aurélie Filipetti has announced the official suppression of the Web access cut-off for people downloading illegal content and the upcoming closure of Hadopi, whose powers will be transferred to the regulator CSA.
    Over the last three years, the cut-off could be decided in court, after several fines, under the law passed in 2009 during Nicolas Sarkozy's tenure which aimed to fight illicit downloads. This will no longer be the case.

    According to the French Government, the new measure puts an end to a practice totally unadapted to “our world”, as the Internet has become a basic human right by which people, particularly young ones, may access culture.
    The French Government wants to reorient the fight against illegal downloads. The main policy new is to fight against commercial piracy and against websites making profits from pirated content, monetising content without paying its creators.

    Responsibility for retaliation against piracy and the automatic fines policy will be transferred to CSA, while Hadopi will close.
