    Marca TV driven to closure
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez August 1, 2013 07.26

    In an official company release, Marca TV has stated that due to the current situation regarding Spanish DTT licences, the Marca TV project is stuck in an untenable position financially.
    The Supreme Court sentence, which declared the distribution of DTT licences in 2010 to be invalid, is yet to come into effect and the Government still needs to reorganise the radio electric spectrum in order to leave more slots for LTE networks. This is why almost all Spain's DTT channels are facing an uncertain future while being pushed to move by the financial situation.
    "The Government doesn't say which channels will close down ... We cannot commit on keep buying sports rights to offer to our audience," says the channel in a release which sums up the feelings of part of Spain's audiovisual sector: why keep investing if their channels may close down?
    Marca TV's place will be taken by La Tienda en Casa, a shopping channel, while Unidad Editorial waits for news regarding the future of DTT licences.

    GS Group launches first Russian tech STB
    Editor | 01-08-2013

    Working under General Satellite brand, GS Group has launched what it says is the first mass market STB based on a Russian microprocessor designed to meet global market demands for satellite TV networks.
    The new GS U510 set top box is claimed to simplify navigation, allowing viewers to organise lists of channels depending on their preferences as well as working within pre-determined categories where the channels fall. In addition to improvements in HDTV, the box offers the possibility to scale images with guaranteed quality regardless of channel and different sizes.
    At the core of the GS U510 is a microprocessor produced in Russia, designed and manufactured by GS Nanotech. "We have been developing this microprocessor for two years. GS Group fully controls the process of crystals development, laboratories being located in Russia and abroad. Encapsulation takes place at GS Nanotech plant within the unique area of Technopolis GS,” explained GS Nanotech CTO Evgeny Maslennikov. “This production is unique both in terms of technology implemented and the level of experts. Especially I would like to emphasise that 2% of the world’s volume of digital set-top boxes are produced in Technopolis GS”.
    Adding his comment on the launch of a device which it will roll out to customers, Vyacheslav Kuklov, Deputy Technical Director of Tricolor TV, GS Group’s long-term partner, said: “Functions and options of the latest set-top box by GS Group make it different from the previous models in a similar way to how a smartphone phone differs from a phone."
    Kuklov also referenced the box’s cryptographic coprocessor which it believes will offer operators such as Tricolor TV an effective anti-piracy solution, essential for pay-TV operators.

    Rebecca Hawkes | 01-08-2013

    A 2G/3G mobile television channel called We 4 U has been launched by a group of engineering graduates in Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of the Indian state of Kerala.
    The innovative 24-hour mobile TV channel aims to promote local news and events particularly for a youth audience, though claims to be accessible worldwide on all platforms, including Java and Android.
    "This is an era of mobile revolution and so we have decided to launch a television channel based on mobile technology," Aravid GS is quoted as saying by PTI.
    The channel, which can be viewed on smartphones, computers, laptops and tablets, is currently in test phase, but the founders hope to cement tie-ups with other television networks in the future.

    UPC Netherlands’ digital growth slows down
    August 2, 2013 11.32 Europe/London By Robert Briel



    upc_homes-passed_total_digital_q2_2013Digital growth at UPC Netherlands is slowing down, while the penetration number of homes passed drops down below 60%.
    During Q2, 2913 UPC added just 4,700 new digital customers bringing the total to 1,094,000. Penetration of homes passed continues to slide down reaching 59.1% on June 30, 2013. This compares unfavourably with Ziggo, who reported a 66.6% penatration at the end of Q2.
    The total number of homes taking TV from UPC has dropped 24,800 to a total of 1,672,100. Digital penetration of all UPC homes has increased to 65.4%.
    Ziggo also reported that take-up of its digital TV product is slowing down with around 5,000 additions during the second quarter of the year.
    The chart, taken from the digitalekabeltelevisie.nl website, shows evolution of the UPC subscriber base.

    Clover’s Week: The mad season
    August 2, 2013 11.36 Europe/London By Julian Clover



    The financial reporting season is upon us, but as Julian Clover notes, the PSBs actually have a finger in more platforms than the pay-TV operators.
    It’s the results season where company executives, financial analysts and journalists plough through the latest numbers to see what they might be able to learn.
    Often it’s just as interesting trying to see what hasn’t been included as much as what has. As a general rule of thumb, if the number hasn’t been included, then that particular product or service probably isn’t doing that well.
    Freesat started us off with the declaration that it had added 145,000 new homes over the last 12 months. The implication of course was that it was doing so much better than Sky, but given that it only turned out to be 9,000 more, probably not as exciting as the press release made us think.
    Besides, numbers like Sky’s 443,000 HD adds over the last 12 months are arguably far more significant.
    What is rather fun is the whole premise that Freesat could be in competition with Freeview and the new Freesat, particularly given there is public service broadcaster involvement in all three. In fact if you count the YouView-supported TV services from BT and TalkTalk then there are more public service TV platforms in the UK than there are pay.
    To confuse things further it is Virgin Media where you see the excellent implementation of the Connected Red Button.
    This week the BBC Trust announced it would be starting its planned review into the BBC’s involvement in YouView.
    In a typically British statement, the Trust’s topline for investigation is whether the blind and partially sighted are being adequately served by YouView. This I should stress is to be applauded, but like so many reports it’s often wise to read it from the back, think of it as the sports pages.
    Here we see the plan to study “The way in which YouView is promoted by its partners (with particular reference to BBC activity, which is subject to the BBC code on cross promotion)”.
    I wonder if the code includes “not really mentioning the product”, as is the case with the TalkTalk advert. In fairness BT hardly mention it at all, though they sometimes refer to it as BT YouView.
    It seems it is unlikely that the BBC will now ever mention YouView in the way that it has made the Freeview brand interchangeable with DTT in its on-screen promotions.

    TiVo continues to deliver for Virgin
    August 2, 2013 11.08 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    virgin_signVirgin Media added another 155,000 TiVo boxes to its subscriber base in the second quarter, bringing the total to 1.7 million.
    TiVo now represents 44% of Virgin’s TV base, a marked increase from the 25% at Q2 2012.
    The cloud-based Virgin TV Anywhere now has 75 live channels available on PCs and 53 on iOS devices. The same app can also be used to allow viewers to remotely connect to their TV box, manage recordings, etc.
    Broadband also continues to be a significant draw for Virgin customers. 2.8 million are now on speeds of 30 Mbps and above, an increase of 1.7 million in the last 12 months. Over 40% of new broadband subscribers taking our 60 Mbps or higher.
    Customers on the 100 Mbps service are being upgraded to 120 Mbps and by July 24, approximately half of the cablenet’s 100 Mbps customers had been upgraded with the remaining are on track to be completed by the end of the year.
    Virgin Media, now a part of Liberty Global, reported revenues of £1,027 million in the quarter.
    RGUs are now back as a metric abs as at June 30, 2013 Virgin declared 12.2 million cable subscription services to 4.9 million unique cable customers, consisting of 3.8 million television, 4.3 million broadband internet and 4.2 million telephony RGUs.
