    Hungary set for ASO
    July 29, 2013 06.33 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    MinDig TV ExtraThe first stage of Hungary’s analogue switch off will take place this Wednesday (July 31) in central parts of the country.
    According to the national transmission company Antenna Hungária, it will cover the Budapest, Györ, Kab-hegy, Szeged and Szentes transmitter regions, with six new low-power sites being launched on the following day.
    These will ensure the MinDig TV and MinDig TV Extra DTT services, providing viewers with a total of 31 channels, are available everywhere in the switch-off area.
    The second stage of ASO will take place on October 31, after which Antenna Hungária will put a further 19 digital low-powered transmitters, mostly in north-eastern Hungary, into operation at the beginning of November.
    In total, there will then be 90 digital terrestrial sites.
    Antenna Hungária expects the vast majority of analogue service users to switch to digital, resulting in up to one million homes using MinDig TV by the end of the year.
    It also plans to expand MinDig TV’s channel line-up and add new services following analogue switch-off.

    Liberty Global increases stake in Ziggo to 28.5%
    July 29, 2013 07.08 Europe/London By Robert Briel



    ziggo-hqLiberty Global continues to increase its stake in Holland’s largest cable operator Ziggo.
    In a statement, Ziggo has said that according to an 8k SEC filing made by Liberty Global, the stake of Liberty Global in Ziggo has been raised to 28.5%.
    LGI had already built a 18.2% holding in the Dutch operator. The new stake increase consists of 17.5 million Ziggo shares, financed entirely through a loan linked to the hedging transaction that is secured by Ziggo shares.
    Liberty Global acquired its first Ziggo shares, 12.65% in March of this year “as strategic and opportunistic investment” when Barclays as underwriter of the sale by Ziggo’s original investors Cinven and Warburg Pincus was left with Ziggo shares. After that, the stake was increased in two steps via 15% to 18.2%.
    “The Supervisory Board and the Board of Management will continue to act in the best interests of its stakeholders in assessing steps made by Liberty Global while continuing to focus on executing Ziggo N.V.’s strategy,” the statement said.
    The increase in Ziggo shares comes after LGI withdrew from the takeover battle over Germany’s largest cable operator Kabel Deutschland.
    Liberty Global is also in the process of offloading its content division Chellomedia. According to the Financial Times, prospective buyers include Scripps Networks Interactive, Time Warner Inc.’s Turner Broadcasting System and Discovery Communications.

    Connected devices the target as YouView partners agree on expansion
    Joseph O'Halloran | 29-07-2013

    With just over six months to go before their original partnership agreement expires, the founders of the YouView project have reportedly agreed on an expansion of their service.
    The timing of this consensus, as reported in the Financial Times (FT), could not be more timely given the launch of the £9.99 NOW TV box by BSkyB, which allows viewers to purchase a day pass to content including Sky Sports and Sky Movies as well as the BBC iPlayer, Demand 5, BBC News App and Sky News.
    In other words, the service will offer non-subscription TV audiences in the UK, thought to measure around 15 million homes, more or less the same on-demand programmes from leading TV services as does YouView. It has to be stressed that YouView is accessed from retail boxes selling for around £300 or through contracts with ISPs BT and TalkTalk.
    The FT reported that discussions between the founding partners of the non-subscription on-demand and catch-up service — such as the BBC, ITV, BT, TalkTalk, Arqiva, Channel 4 and Channel 5 — are centred on rebooting YouView so that it can be accessed from a range of connected devices, including TV sets, smartphones and tablets. Noticeably from the get-go the new NOW TV box is already available on PCs, Mac, iPhone, iPad, selected Android smartphones and tablets, Xbox, PS3, YouView and Roku.
    “The multi-device strategy such as connected TVs is important in particular to the broadcasters,” the FT quoted a person familiar with the talks. “It has started as a TV set-top box but will evolve into a much bigger platform for us all to use”. The source also floated the idea that some partners were keen on bolstering the YouView catch-up TV content bouquet.

    Verimatrix selects S3 to oversee security partner programme
    Joseph O'Halloran | 29-07-2013

    As part of plans to reduce integration cycle time for ecosystem partners, content security specialist Verimatrix has chosen S3 Group to manage its partner pre-certification service and provide integration support.
    Under the terms of the multi-year, managed service contract, S3 Group will not only take control of the extensive partner pre-integration service, it will also provide integration support for its ViewRight (client security library) and the flagship Video Content Authority System (VCAS) solutions.
    At present S3 Group is engaged with streamlining customer deployments of VCAS for DVB, with implementations of ViewRight on Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) enabled set-top boxes (STBs) enabling digital TV operators to have an upgrade path to interactive IP-based networks using a single security authority.
    “The timely and smooth integration of our products is a competitive differentiator. We undertook a comprehensive selection process, and chose S3 Group for their domain expertise in working with pay-TV ecosystem partners, including our global system integrators,” commented Verimatrix chief sales and marketing officer Steve Oetegenn.
    “They impressed us with the maturity of their system integration toolsets and processes, offering a complete solution to help successfully guide our customers through our stringent certification process. We look forward to expanding our collaboration in the future.”

    Foxtel closes down 3DTV offering
    Joseph O'Halloran | 29-07-2013

    And another one bites the dust: following in the footsteps of ESPN and the BBC, Foxtel is to abandon its 3DTV service.
    From 27 August Foxtel's 3D channel ( 201) will cease to be broadcast and will be removed from the company’s on-screen and online TV Guides. The leading pay-TV operator said that due to “a worldwide lack of 3D content production, it is no longer viable for Foxtel to maintain a dedicated 3D channel”.
    The first blow to 3DTV came in March 2013 when Bob Zitter, executive vice president and CTO at HBO, proclaimed that 3D was dead in the water. "We never thought that 3D with glasses was ever going to get off the ground," Zitter told attendees at the TV Connect show. "Consumers have shown they do not want to wear glasses in the home. 3D with glasses is dead."
    Weeks later ESPN announced that was discontinuing its offering due to limited viewer adoption. “ESPN 3D was great at home but due to low adoption of 3D to home, we are discontinuing to focus on other products for fans and affiliates," said ESPN spokeswoman Katina Arnold. Days later the BBC announced it was putting its 3D development on hold.
    Despite making its closures, Foxtel assured that it will continue to show the occasional 3D pay-per-view (PPV) movie title via its on-demand service. However, due to the inevitable declining availability of 3D sport and documentary content, it does not expect to be able to show these types of 3D content via on-demand once the 3D channel is closed.

    Orange Group to reinforce TV service in Spain
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 29-07-2013

    Orange TV has over six million users worldwide, with France being the country in which the telco has most customers and where it has experienced the greatest growth during the first half of 2013. However, things don't seem to be going so well for the company in Spain.
    Orange TV has dropped 3,000 customers in Spain during last three months and the company is now focusing on regaining clients.
    Spanish audiences have never been great supporters of pay-TV solutions and the new on-demand services are actually starting to work better than the traditional cable platforms. This is why Orange wants to set a goal of reaching 100,000 users during the year following the launch of its new service.
    Currently, the IPTV platform has 65,000 clients in Spain. In Poland it has 700,000 (22,000 new users during last year) and in Romania the number is expected to reach 300,000 in the next two years.
    The French-based company is aiming for its Spanish platform to get closer to these numbers, while it reinforces the pay-TV market in the country.

    Chile, Brazil, Argentina top telecoms investment in Latin America
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 29-07-2013

    Chile is the Latin American country with the highest rate of investment in the telecom sector, according to a report of Ovum and AHCIET's observatory based on 2011 data. Chile spent $69.83 per capita, followed by Brazil with $63.36 and Argentina with $59.94.
    Investment drops to $31.34 for Mexico, which occupies the fourth place in the ranking. Colombia, which is expected to experience great growth in the telecoms market in the coming years, is in the fifth place with $30.64 per capita.
    The report points to Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Brazil as the countries with the greatest investment growth during 2008 and 2011.
    Argentina was spending $1,200 million in 2008, while by 2011 it had doubled its budget to $2,500 million. Colombia's investment grew 46% to $1,400 million and Chile's increased 40% to $1,200 million. However, these numbers are still well below México, which invested $3,500 million in 2011, and Brazil ($2,000 million).
    The report writers cite Chile's case as especially interesting because, in spite of being a small country with a medium economy, it registered the greatest growth in the region. They also point out that a high rate of investment will decrease the cost of access to new broadband and Internet technologies.
