    Lithuanian telco gains TV subs
    July 18, 2013 08.40 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    gala-brollyThe TeliaSonera-backed Lithuanian incumbent TEO ended the first half of 2013 with 170,200 users of its TV services, or nearly 9% more than a year earlier.
    At the same time, its internet subscriber total rose by 4.5% to 394,100. TEO’s share of revenue from internet and TV services continued to grow and amounted to 24.6% and 8.5% of the total respectively in H1 this year.
    TEO’s total consolidated revenues for H1 stood at LTL360.5 million (€104 million), while its net profit was LTL75.6 million.
    This compared to LTL380.7 million and LTL78.3 million in the corresponding period in 2012.
    The telco allocated LTL45 million for investments in the first six months of this year, with the majority (LTL39 million) being for the core network and next generation fiber-optic access networks.

    Game of Thrones breaks blinkbox records
    July 18, 2013 08.38 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    Game of ThronesThe launch of season 3 of Game of Thrones on the Tesco-owned blinkbox has given the entertainment download service a 632% increase in sales revenue compared to the same day in 2012.
    blinkbox has secured the third instalment of the HBO fantasy series in HD ahead of its DVD and Blu-ray release in February 2014. It is not available on rival services Lovefilm Instant, Netflix and iTunes, though can be found on Sky Go.
    To celebrate having the epic HBO series, blinkbox installed a giant ‘dragon skull’ on a Dorset beach – a stunt which stunned locals and captured imagination online. The dramatic work was inspired by a memorable scene in the show which sees character Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) discover a dragon skull in the dungeons of King’s Landing. At this point in George RR Martin’s fantasy, the dragons are supposedly long dead, but it hints strongly at their return which is a key theme of the third season.

    EC to investigate Numéricâble
    July 18, 2013 08.17 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    numericableThe European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation into whether the transfer of public cable infrastructure by around 33 municipalities to France’s leading operator Numéricâble was in accordance with EU state rules.
    Numéricâble received the infrastructure for free between 2003 and 2006 and the Commission says that at this stage it has doubts that such aid could have been compatible with the rules.
    In a statement, it adds that: “the transfers do not constitute a Service of General Economic Interest (SGEI) because France has entrusted no public service obligation to Numéricâble. Furthermore, these transfers do not appear to further any objective of common interest in a proportional manner, while they have a high potential of distorting competition with other operators in the same area.”
    Numéricâble is owned by YPSO and following a series of M&A now effectively the only cable operator in France, claiming a 99.6% share of the market.
    It is, according to the Commission, also a very important player in the deployment of next generation access (NGA) networks, having already taken advantage of its cable network by replacing the cable and installing FTTB.

    Bulgaria provides DTT assistance
    July 18, 2013 07.59 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Needy people in Bulgaria are to receive free DTT receivers ahead of the country’s transition to digital broadcasting.
    According to the Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications (MTITC), this follows approval granted by the European Commission and signing of the first contracts with companies that will provide the receivers.
    Initially, they will be distributed in four regions in the north of the country to some 124,000 poor Bulgarians, who will be able to exchange vouchers, available from August 1, for the receivers.
    A second tender for the supply of receivers to just over 86,000 living in the south of Bulgaria has also just been announced, with distribution of receivers expected to start at the end of August.

    Four-fifths of mobile users multitask while watching TV
    Editor | 18-07-2013
    In what could be seen as a huge second-screen opportunity, a survey from NPD DisplaySearch has revealed that more than four-fifths of smartphone and tablet users multitask with apps while watching TV.
    In the Quarterly Multi-Screen Usage Study, this broke down to 88% of tablet PC owners and 82% of smartphone owners in 15 countries using their devices at least some of the time while they watch TV. Furthermore, 85% of tablet owners and 65% of smartphone owners viewed online TV content on their mobile devices instead of on their sets at least some of the time. Of the people who used mobile devices to view online content, most said that they like the ability to watch from anywhere and do not have to compete with others for control of the TV remote.
    That said, the survey also revealed that about 15% of tablet-owners never watch online content on their mobile devices, most of this group citing the fact that the screens were too small and that the sound quality is not as good as on TV. Similarly, just over a third (35%) of smartphone owners never use their smartphones to view online content, and this is because of their smaller screen sizes, difficulty holding them for long periods, and poor sound quality.
    Interestingly, discovery, the ability to find compelling content on mobile device, was not a gating factor at all. Nor did the analyst reveal any evidence that the uptick in mobile usage was affecting sales of TVs.
    "The rise in mobile connected devices has changed the way consumers view TV and online content," said Riddhi Patel, NPD DisplaySearch research director. "For many people around the world, multitasking with apps on smartphones and tablets while watching TV has forever changed the traditional TV-focused viewing experience. There is a commonly held belief that the increasing popularity of tablet PCs and smartphones will cannibalise or otherwise adversely affect sales of other devices. While we see that tablet PC ownership affects the purchase of smaller-sized TVs, there has not been much impact on purchases of TVs larger than 30 inches."

    Virgin keeps the faith in third dimension with enhanced 3DTV roster
    Editor | 18-07-2013
    Despite some of the biggest names in broadcasting, namely the BBC and ESPN, putting their own platform plans on hold, Virgin Media has enhanced its 3DTV roster with content from Sony, Discovery and New Media Vision.
    From July 2013, Virgin will add around 50 hours of 3D content to its on-demand line-up including shows such as 3D Dive, Kalahari Meerkats and Monster Trucks. The company was the first UK TV platform provider to offer a 3DTV service and already offers up to 25 hours of 3D TV content, encompassing blockbuster movies to wildlife shows. Virgin says that over a million 3D movies and programmes have been watched on 3D On Demand service.
    "3D offers a unique and often breathtaking experience and our customers are making the most of Virgin Media's 3D On Demand line-up to sit down and try it for themselves," remarked Kevin O'Neil, head of TV product management at Virgin Media. "We offer our customers a wide choice of content and 3D at no extra cost is proving to be a valuable addition for many of our TV fans."

    US online video ads break 20BN barrier in June 2013
    Parent Category: News | 18-07-2013
    Any doubts as to whether companies can monetise a resurgent US online video market have been quashed in the comScore video matrix for June 2013, where video ad views surpassed 20 billion.
    According to the comScore Video Metrix for the month, 183 million Americans watched more than 44 billion online content videos in June, representing 85.2% of the US Internet audience.
    The duration of the average online content video was 5.3 minutes and, as ever, Google Sites, driven primarily by YouTube, dominated with 158.3 million unique viewers. Google was followed by the ever more video-centric Facebook with 61.6 million, AOL with 51 million, VEVO with 49.3 million, and Microsoft Sites with 46.8 million. The VEVO video music channel maintained the top position in the YouTube partner rakings with 47.5 million viewers, followed by Fullscreen with 34.3 million.
    Google Sites also generated nearly 15.7 billion out of a total of over 44 billion video content views, followed by AOL with 775 million and Facebook with 730 million. Google Sites had the highest average engagement among the top ten properties.
    Almost a third of all videos viewed in June 2013 were video ads, which also accounted for 3% of all minutes spent viewing video online. Video ads reached nearly 54% of the total US population an average of 121 times during the month.
    Such increased popularity saw Americans view a record 20 billion video ads in the month, with Google Sites delivering 3.3 billion ad impressions. LiveRail.com came in second with 2.4 billion ads, followed by BrightRoll Platform with 2.4 billion, Adap.tv with 2.2 billion and Specific Media with 1.5 billion.
    Time spent watching video ads totalled 7.5 billion minutes, with BrightRoll Platform delivering the highest duration of video ads at 1.2 billion minutes. Hulu delivered the highest frequency of video ads to its viewers with an average of 73, while the average online video ad was 0.4 minutes.

    Game of Thrones drives blinkbox to record-breaking viewing
    Parent Category: News | 18-07-2013
    The North Will Rise Again, as will viewing figures when Game Of Thrones comes on offer through blinkbox with the arrival of the latest instalment of the epic fantasy series.
    The Tesco-owned UK film movie and TV streaming service reported a 632% increase in sales revenue compared with the same day in 2012 year for the show which occupies the top three positions in the blinkbox TV chart. Despite its huge cult popularity, access to the programme has been limited in the UK to subscribers of Sky Atlantic.
    The third instalment of the service is available on blinkbox in HD ahead of its DVD and Blu-ray release in February 2014 and is not available on rival over-the-top services LOVEFiLM Instant, Netflix or iTunes. It is available on a number of connected devices including games consoles, tablets, smart TVs, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes and PCs/Macs.
    "Game of Thrones is quite simply epic and it seems to have captured the imagination of the British public," commented Adrian Letts, blinkbox COO. "To see such demand in the middle of a heatwave is amazing. It's encouraging to know that hot weather, even in Britain, is still no match for hot TV."

    BBC, BT Sport team up to score FA Cup broadcasting rights
    Editor | 18-07-2013
    It may have been dismissed by BSkyB for the lack of top notch live games in its initial Premier League roster, but BT Sport has hit back at its rival by securing, in partnership with the BBC, rights to the English FA Cup until 2018.
    The deal with the English football governing body — whose chairman Greg Dyke is a former BBC Director General — marks the return of the world's oldest cup competition to the BBC after losing the rights to ITV. Action will be available on TV, online, mobile and tablet, with live streaming across all devices. The deal also marks something of a coup for BT Sport which will begin operation in August 2013.
    Commenting for once on a positive development in recent times, BBC Director General Tony Hall said: "Bringing the FA Cup back to the BBC was something I really wanted to do and I am so pleased that we have achieved it for football fans everywhere. There is something very special about big national moments on the BBC, and the FA Cup should absolutely be one of them."
    "Working closely with the FA I believe we will change the way we view the FA Cup forever," added
    BT Retail CEO Gavin Patterson. "BT Sport made a determined joint bid to retain The FA Cup rights because we believe it is one of the truly great club football competitions. We are thrilled to bring our viewers the incredible stories of passion, and victories against all odds, that pepper the history of the competition. "

    Comux commences countdown to UK local TV
    Editor | 18-07-2013
    The community-owned business selected by UK broadcast regulator Ofcom to build and operate a local TV broadcasting infrastructure, has set its manifesto for the service.
    Covering many of the issues to be faced by the project which he said is slated to launch by the end of 2013, Comux chief executive, Ed Hall, highlighted the opportunities that he believes the network will offer to commercial and community organisations.
    As part of its remit, Comux UK will provide what it says is a commercially sustainable and robust solution to the challenges facing local TV operators, whilst providing an attractive return to the local TV industry as a whole and the Comux stakeholders, the local TV operators themselves. Comux will be providing licensees with transmission, playout and scheduling services, as well as additional and enhanced broadcast services.
    "Local TV will offer a more personalised and tailored experience for people from communities who have a desire for local content," Hall asserted. "The changing TV landscape offers exciting opportunities to new talent, and viewers. Local TV will provide a very different experience to that of traditional national broadcasters and online channels. It places local programme-makers, viewers and content at the heart of the initiative and in a great channel position. We have removed as many technological and financial barriers as possible to market entrants, enabling local licensees to focus on making the best content possible for their audience."
    At launch, the UK local TV will be first rolled out by Channel Seven Grimsby and then to cities such as Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton and Hove, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Preston, Sheffield and Southampton. Potentially, a further 30 stations could launch in the second phase in 2014/15.
    Negotiations with various major technology partners are proceeding to plan and will be announced over the coming weeks as agreements are signed.
