    Orange TV customers climb
    July 27, 2013



    The Orange Group reported 6.164 million IPTV and satellite TV customers in its half-year results, up 12% from 5.506 million last year.


    The figures were mainly due to an increase in French TV customers, with 5.322 signed up by June 30, compared to 4.703 million last year.


    It was also helped by a 3.25% rise in Polish TV customers, which on 30 June 2013 stood at 699,000.


    Overall, the firm said that its consolidated revenues were €20.6 billion, down 4.5% on a comparable basis. First-half net income was €1.2 billion, compared to €1.9 billion in the first half of 2012.

    Eutelsat develops 'smart LNB', launches Lybid TV for Ukrainian homes
    Joseph O'Halloran | 28-07-2013

    Satellite operator Eutelsat has completed the first phase of development of a 'smart LNB' for a DTH antenna that it says will open the door for broadcasters to operate their own ecosystem of linear television and connected TV services.
    Now entering into the industrialisation phase in advance of commercial availability in 2014, the smart LNB is designed for a DTH ecosystem that Eutelsat says is poised to enter a new era. The LNB takes the form of an electronic feed connected to an antenna with an embedded transmitter for interactive applications such as HbbTV, pay-per-view, social networking, personal subscription management and live show participation.
    Such capabilities, argues Eutelsat, will transform mass market direct-to-home satellite services by enabling broadcasters and platform operators to bolt interactive value-added services onto their broadcast platforms, circumventing viewer dependency on terrestrial fixed and mobile networks.
    "The 'smart LNB' will enable broadcast players to more efficiently serve their customer base and diversify the range and nature of applications offered, from direct customer support to audience measurement and enhanced security," commented Jean-François Leprince-Ringuet, Eutelsat's chief commercial officer. "This new technology can benefit satellite homes with limited options for the return link as well as mature markets where platform operators are seeking to build and sustain a close direct relationship with their subscriber base."
    At the same time, the company announced that Ukrainian pay-TV platform Lybid TV has initiated full commercial operations on the EUTELSAT 36B satellite. The platform has signed a multi-year lease for two transponders for broadcasting up to 50 digital channels. These include the premium sport channels Football, Football +, Sport-1 and Sport-2, in addition to European and Russian brands including Travel Channel, Tiji, Gulli, Universal Channel, Boets and Zagorodnaya zhizn.

    Timeline takes BT Sport to starting gate
    Editor | 28-07-2013

    Almost on the eve of its launch, BT has revealed the part played by Timeline Television in the transformation of the former Olympics broadcasting centre hub into its new facilities for its new BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN services.
    Working as the lead partner for BT Sport, Timeline Television managed the end-to-end design and build of the BT Sport production hub, including building infrastructure and broadcast systems integration.
    Timeline also managed the IBC build to house three TV studios, sports production galleries, a master control room, 20 edit suites, dubbing theatre and an audience holding area. Having gained access to the building on 4 February, the design, build and commissioning took six months and is, claims Timeline, one of the largest and quickest broadcast installations in the industry.
    “The sheer scale and time frame of this project has been an incredible challenge but we have worked closely with BT Sport to design and build a real state of the art and flexible broadcast facility matched to their exciting production ambitions,” explained Dan McDonnell, managing director of Timeline Television. “Our careful choice of suppliers and equipment manufacturers has enabled us to meet the tight deadlines and I’m really looking forward to seeing BT Sport go live on 1 August.”
    Timeline Television has also been awarded a five year managed service contract for technical operations including studios, MCR, post-production and end-to-end workflow support. Timeline will supplement its core staff with a team of freelance editors, cameramen, sound operators and EVS operators to provide craft skills to BT’s production teams and production partners where required.

    Bigger, better, healthier entertainment market driving demand for storage
    Joseph O'Halloran | 28-07-2013

    As image resolution and frame rates increase and stereoscopic (and other multi-camera) video becomes more common, storage requirements are exploding, according to new research from Coughlin Associates.
    In its 2013 Digital Storage for Media and Entertainment Report, the analyst believes that the development of 4KTV and other high resolution venues in the home and in mobile devices will drive the demand for digital content, especially that enabled by HEVC (H.265) compression. It calculates that several petabytes of storage may be required for a complete stereoscopic digital movie project at 4K resolution, and there is some production work as high as 8K. Within ten years it suggests the industry could even see close to an Exabyte of content created in a single major movie project.
    Between 2013 and 2018 Coughlin expects about a 5.8 X increase in the required digital storage capacity used in the entertainment industry and about a 3.8-fold increase in storage capacity shipped per year from 26,756 petabytes to 102,661 petabytes.
    All of this demand could drive healthy profits. Coughlin predicts that total media and entertainment storage revenue will grow more than 90% between 2013 and 2018 from $6.2 billion to $11.9 billion. It added that total revenue for storage media and devices used in media and entertainment applications will increase about 20% from 2013 to 2018 from $741 million to $892 million.

    Connected home sweet home scores for Technicolor
    Joseph O'Halloran | 28-07-2013

    As it reported its financial results for the first half of 2013, Technicolor has revealed that its connected home business has reported a fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit year-on-year growth.
    For the half year ended 30 June, even though the leading media and entertainment technology reported €1.6 billion of revenue, down 1.9% year-on-year, it turned around a €26 million loss in to a €6 million profit. This, explained the company, was driven by what it said was ongoing momentum in the emerging markets and additions to the division’s product mix. Revenues for the second quarter of the year were €814 million, down 3.8% on the same time in 2012.
    Looking at individual business lines, the technology division reported revenues above €100 million, driven by Technicolor’s licensing programmes whilst the entertainment services division increased revenues year-on-year excluding legacy activities, reflecting aid the company the return to growth of digital production and a sustained performance of DVD Services.
    Technicolor claimed that contributions to standards were strong in the first half of 2013, particularly for the MPEG HEVC and MPEG-H audio standards. Following the recent agreement with Sony to reinforce the company’s ability to monetise its IP portfolio for key technologies used in mobile devices, Technicolor confirmed that it will launch new initiatives to expand its licensing activities, notably in the field of smartphones.

    Russian DTT decision in September
    July 29, 2013 08.35 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    RTRSThe final composition of Russia’s second DTT multiplex should be known by the end of September.
    According to Kommersant, Roskomnadzor recently announced a competition for a slot on the multiplex vacated in April by TV Center, which is now on the first multiplex.
    Although the initial tender for the second multiplex was oversubscribed, at least one of the failed bidders – Russia Today – will not participate in the new contest.
    However, Profmedia, Komsomolskaya Pravda and O2TV are among those that will.
    Once fully up and running, the second multiplex will cover 97.6% of Russia’s population.

    Channels interested in ESPN America rights
    July 29, 2013 08.17 Europe/London By Robert Briel



    espnamericaEuropean sports broadcasters are looking to acquire rights from ESPN America.
    The European version of ESPN America will cease broadcasting on Wednesday. In the UK BT Sport has acquired all the rights and will continue with a localised version of the channel, but for the rest of Europe the various sports rights are up for grabs.
    The rights include NFL (National Football League), MLB (Major League Baseball) and NHL (National Hockey League).
    Many fans of the sports exclusively broadcast by ESPN America are worried they no longer will have access to live coverage of their favourite teams when the channel stops broadcasting.
    In the Netherlands, Chellomedia’s Sport1 is now negotiating to obtain rights for the Sport1 multiplex of premium channels.
    In Germany, the new Sportamerica HD hopes to obtain all former ESPN rights. It is a new channel from Sportdigital, who plans to launch the new channel as soon as all rights will be cleared.
    In France Al Jazeera’s sports channel BeInSport has acquired some of the rights.
    In other territories, various broadcasters are also trying to pick up the rights to fill the void left by ESPN America. For an overview of NHL broadcast partners, see the NHL website For NBA games see their website.
    For most of the European footprint, ESPN Player is available online. Some of the live sports from ESPN America is available on the online player (like College Football, College Basketball, X Games and Motorsports) but ESPN Player not available in Italy, Spain or Russia.
    NFL games are available online with a subscription to NFL Game Pass. Similar online options are available from MLB.com.
