    New victory for Turkish media group
    July 30, 2013 08.45 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    TurkcellTurkey’s Cukurova Group has received another boost in its attempt to regain control of Turkcell.
    This follows a ruling by the UK Privy Council giving Cukurova more than the original 60 days to pay Russia’s Alfa Group $1.56 billion (€1.18 billion) for a 13.8% stake in Turkcell, Turkey’s leading mobile company.
    The Council also suspended an interest of 8% interest over the Libor rate on the stake and said the parties could apply for a cut-off date for the payment anytime after December 1 this year. Alfa Group originally took control of Turkcell when Cukurova defaulted on a loan of $1.35 billion.
    However, Cukurova still finds itself in financial difficulties and in May had a number of its own assets seized by the Savings Deposit Insurance Fund (TMSF) for failing to control its debts.
    These include the DTH platform Digitürk, which has recently attracted interest from a number of prospective buyers including Dogan Media Group’s rival DTH platform D-Smart.
    Just last week, Türk Telekom made a non-binding offer for a 53% stake in the platform.
    Besides being Turkey’s leading mobile operator, Turkcell also has a presence in its TV industry.

    ESPN claims digital sport content leadership for June 2013
    Joseph O'Halloran | 30-07-2013

    Data from the comScore multi-platform survey has revealed ESPN Digital Media as the leading digital platform for sports content in June 2013.
    ESPN Digital Media accounted for 31.8% of all sports category usage across digital platforms in June, claiming an average minute audience of 106,096 and attracting 51.748 million unique viewers. Even though second place Yahoo! Sports-NBC Sports Network, attracted more unique viewers, 55.231 million, in the month it attracted 49,915 people in the average minute and only a 15% category share.
    Looking at how content was accessed for ESPN, at least a third of the company’s unique users, 16.8 million people, exclusively accessed content on smartphones and tablets, and just under half of all time spent with ESPN digital content came from mobile device users. Users watched 276 million ESPN digital video clips. Three-quarters of clips were viewed on computers, 15% on mobile devices and 9% on the YouTube online video platform.
    Viewers spent 797 million minutes with WatchESPN and ESPN3 live and on-demand programming across all platforms and ESPN networks and ABC sports television content generated 37.4 million social media comments in June.

    Microsoft starts TV white space pilot in South Africa
    Rebecca Hawkes | 30-07-2013

    Microsoft has launched a new TV white spaces trial in the northern South African province of Limpopo, to add to its existing trials in Kenya and Tanzania, and similar to those being undertaken by Google in Cape Town.
    This latest pilot, part of Microsoft's 4Afrika initiative, is being conducted in conjunction with the University of Limpopo's Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and local network builder Multisource.
    White spaces are unused frequencies for television broadcasters to deliver wireless Internet services over ranges of up to 5.4km. The Limpopo project will use TV white spaces and solar-powered base stations to provide wireless broadband access to five secondary schools in remote parts of the province, using the university as a hub for a white space network deployment to also connect nearby schools.
    "Reducing the cost of broadband access means millions more South Africans will get online. This will create new opportunities for education, healthcare, commerce and the delivery of Government services across the country," said Mteto Nyati, managing director, Microsoft SA.
    The South African Government wants 80% of its citizens to have broadband access by 2020, though they have yet to agree to the re-use of radio spectrum for this experimental technology. Microsoft and Google will thus be hoping their pilots persuade South African regulators to allow the legal use of TV white spaces for broadband purposes.
    Microsoft is predicting white space connectivity of up to 4Mbps at a cost of between 20-50 rand ($2.04-$5.10) a month, according to A ZDNet report, which is around ten times less than the existing 1Mbps broadband connection cost.

    Al Aan TV to provide content for Numidia News TV
    Rebecca Hawkes | 30-07-2013

    A content syndication partnership has been formed between Al Aan TV, the pan-Arab satellite TV station based in Dubai, and the Algerian independent channel Numidia News TV.
    Al Aan TV, which is a multi-genre channel aimed at a female audience, will provide Numidia News TV with a variety of programming from entertainment to cookery, to news bulletins and current affairs shows.
    "Al Aan was established to become a network channel designed to feed other channels with the best infotainment programmes for local markets," said Dana Shadid, project manager, Al Aan TV. "We are thrilled with the partnership with Numidia News TV; it is one milestone out of many," she added.
    Numidia News TV was Algeria's first non-governmental channel to launch, and broadcasts from Eutelsat 7 West A. It now competes for Algerian television viewers with the state-owned broadcaster ENTV, Canal Algerie, TVA3, Tamazight TV, Coran TV, Echorouk TV, El Djazairiya TV, Ennahar TV, Hoggar TV, Dzairshop TV, L'Index TV, Dzair TV, Al Atlas TV, Djurdjura Children Channel and Samira.
    The Dubai-based channel, which began life in 2005, says the deal with Numidia News TV "highlights the beginning of its syndication journey" as it seeks more partnerships across the Middle East and North Africa.
    "Syndication is an essential element of Al Aan's distribution strategy; as hundreds of new channels are launched every year, original content is rare and difficult to find," the channel said in a statement.
    Al Aan is already in discussion to form further content partnerships with new and existing broadcasters to help fill 24-hour programme grids. With a proposed 80% of content being supplied by Al Aan, the channel says its franchise model will allow its partners to localise the brand name for their markets.

    NDR makes Elemental move for 24/7 broadcasting
    Joseph O'Halloran | 30-07-2013

    As part of its plan to advance its multiscreen initiatives, NDR has made significant investment in video processing systems from Elemental Technologies to perform 24/7 encoding of live content.
    The German Public Broadcaster plans to create video streams of programme broadcasts, news and special events for publicly and freely accessible Web portals and mobile apps. The deployment — where video processing power, encoding density and high quality video output were cited as key advantages — is supported by LOGIC Media Solutions, the German partner of the supplier of video solutions for multiscreen content delivery.
    In the NDR workflow, each Elemental Live system supports four HD-SDI inputs simultaneously. 11 streams are encoded from each input for distribution directly to the Akamai content delivery network (CDN). This architecture allows NDR to ramp up its live streaming in a reduced footprint while scaling back on its use of an external service provider in favour of an internal transcoding and transmission workflow.
    Elemental believes that what it calls NDR’s “pioneering” approach to video processing, streaming and delivery by bringing encoding in-house will lead to lower distribution costs.

    Netflix users not abandoning traditional TV viewing
    Joseph O'Halloran | 30-07-2013

    Contrary to the received wisdom that over-the-top services would lead to wholesale cord-cutting, new research from TiVo Research and Analytics (TRA) has found that Netflix at least is not cannibalising traditional TV viewing.
    The research body, said to be the largest provider of single-source TV viewing and purchase data for advertisers and TV networks, observed historical TV viewing data from those households from November 2012 through April 2013 across 28 of the most watched US TV networks and benchmarked them against the total universe of its 1.5 million intab TV households.
    Fundamentally the research found that there was no significant difference in the amount of traditional TV viewing between the self-reported Netflix and non-Netflix households, nor did either group differ from the overall TV viewing population.
    Nearly three-fifths (57%) of the sample subscribed to the leading OTT service and 18% had watched House of Cards, Netflix’s EMMY award-winning first-foray into original content. Half the sample also reported they subscribe to Amazon Prime and 18% to Hulu Plus; 8% subscribe to all three over-the-top services.
    Yet even those most avid Netflix viewers did not stop watching other services including individual dramas. Indeed households who reported viewing House of Cards watched 85% more HBO than non-Netflix households and they watched Showtime's Homeland 125% more than those who don't use Netflix. All Netflix households viewed Showtime's Homeland 26% more than those who don't use Netflix.
    Commenting on the research, Mark Lieberman, CEO of TRA said: "Our data show that Netflix is not currently a substitute for traditional television, but offers a way for TV lovers to watch more of the kinds of programmes they love. The future of television may tell a different story, but as of today we've found that the Netflix subscribers in our study are not watching less traditional TV."

    Tablet shipments on track to double those of notebooks in 2014
    Joseph O'Halloran | 30-07-2013

    If the industry wasn’t sure as to what the most likely form of a second-screen would look like, a new NPD DisplaySearch Report makes clear that it will be tablet-shaped.
    According to the NPD DisplaySearch Quarterly Mobile PC Shipment and Forecast Report, shipments of tablets are expected to reach nearly 364 million worldwide in 2014, more than doubling the projected 177 million shipments of standard notebook PC and ultra-slim PCs.
    The tablet tipping point will be reached this year as the platform proliferates across all regions, particularly in emerging markets. There is an interesting sub trend in terms of tablet screen size. The research calculates that tablets with screens smaller than 8” will account for 59% of the market (166 million units) in 2013, but this will rise to 63% (277 million units) in 2015. New tablet PC screen sizes will include both 8” and 7.5” sizes, and manufacturers are expected to focus on tablets with prices that are attractive to middle-income buyers.
    “The PC market is clearly shifting away from notebooks and toward tablets,” commented Richard Shim, senior analyst with NPD DisplaySearch. “Supply chain indications reveal that previously planned production of notebook PCs is being pulled back due to declining adoption and that brands are gradually increasing the number of tablet PC models in their product mixes. Panel and finished goods suppliers are also increasing production of displays and other components for tablets in order to keep up with the market changes.”
    Looking to the near future, NPD projects that tablets shipments will reach 589 million by 2017, while notebook PC and ultra-slim PC are forecast at 176 million.

    Sinclair acquires Allbritton TV channels in near billion dollar deal
    Editor | 30-07-2013

    Leading US diversified TV firm Sinclair Broadcast Group has entered into a definitive agreement to buy the Allbritton-owned Charleston TV assets in a deal worth $985.0 million.
    The Allbritton stations comprise seven ABC Network affiliates, covering 4.9% of the US TV households, and NewsChannel 8, a 24-hour cable/satellite news network covering the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. As is the norm for such transactions, completion is subject to the approval of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
    For its part, Sinclair Broadcast already owns and operates, programmes or provides sales services to 140 television stations in 72 markets, after pending transactions. Sinclair claims that its TV group reaches just over a third (35%) of US television households and includes FOX, ABC, MyTV, CW, CBS, NBC, and Azteca affiliates.
    Showing what the new acquisition will do for its balance sheet, when including the Allbritton station acquisitions, all previously announced acquisitions, and pro forma for expected synergies, Sinclair’s net broadcast revenues for 2011 and 2012 would have been $1.609 billion and $1.865 billion, respectively.
    “We are thrilled to add the Allbritton properties to our growing portfolio and national footprint,” said David Smith, President and CEO of Sinclair commenting on the deal.
    “To buy a full-blown news operation in our nation’s capital and an infrastructure that allows us to be connected to our branches of government and be at the pulse of national issues is a once-in-a lifetime event. We are especially excited to acquire the NewsChannel 8 local news channel, not only for the content it can provide our existing news stations, but moreover because their regional cable presence provides the perfect platform should we decide to expand it into other markets, especially given the amount of local news we produce across our entire portfolio.”
