    Netflix launches user profiles
    August 4, 2013


    Netflix has launched a new feature that will let members of a household create separate user profiles on one account.

    Netflix said the profiles will make it easier for everyone “to get the most out of Netflix” as it will give different users of a single account a personalised experience, based on their individual viewing habits, favourite programmes and favourite genres.

    Netflix said each account can now have up to five profiles, at no extra cost to the basic subscription price, beginning this week.

    “We continually innovate and are proud to deliver an even better, more personal Netflix experience. Now everyone in your home can have their own Netflix experience, built around the TV programmes and films they enjoy. No longer will your Netflix suggestions be mixed up with those of your kids, a significant other, housemates or guests,” said Netflix Chief Product Officer Neil Hunt.

    Bandwidth management, not cord-cutting, operators’ biggest threat from OTT
    Joseph O'Halloran | 05-08-2013

    Despite the increased popularity of over-the-top content and services, broadband issues are perceived by operators as a bigger threat than cord-cutting, new research from Incognito Software has revealed.
    Revealing to Rapid TV News a deeper version of the previously released analysis, the Growth of OTT Content: Opportunities and Challenges for Service Providers report from the global provider of broadband software provisioning and service activation solutions found that rather than be cowed by cord-cutting concerns, the majority of operators survey acknowledge that the popularity of OTT content could actually provide opportunities to develop new partnerships and revenue streams.
    The survey found that fundamentally OTT is driving network capacity upgrades. Just over four-fifths (82%) of respondents have already upgraded their network infrastructure to cope with increased subscriber bandwidth usage, with three-quarters attributing this increase to streaming video sites.
    Analysing the data, Incognito say that overall, the data suggests that broadband service providers currently favour the “stick” approach and are opting for bandwidth caps and fair usage policies that largely punish high bandwidth users. Although there were regional variations between the strategies used, most respondents acknowledged employing several at once, indicating that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to dealing with the increase in OTT content.
    Nearly half (47%) of all concerned respondents in Latin America are most anxious about bandwidth consumption and the most common methods of managing these risks include fair usage policies (63%), bandwidth caps (58%), and proprietary OTT models (53%).
    By contrast, more than two-fifths of those in the EMEA region are most concerned about losing content to OTT providers and their most common methods for managing this risk is through the use of proprietary OTT services (62%) and fair usage policies (48%). Bandwidth caps are being used by providers in North America as their primary means of managing OTT with a third deploying fair usage and service add-ons.

    TV viewing habit changes push bandwidth demands


    watch-tablet-ipadThe trend toward obtaining video and audio content via the Internet, and bypassing programming offered by traditional cable and satellite providers, is advancing more quickly than previously believed because of a sea-change in the viewing habits of younger consumers, according to a study commissioned by industry group the Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council Americas.
    The Council noted that this trend will further accelerate demands for more bandwidth and faster connectivity in North American households, pushed by wider availability of Internet-connected televisions, growth in the number of simultaneous video streams per household and the development of more robust streaming standards to support high quality HD and super HD video.
    Based on its survey of 2,000 US and Canadian subscribers to fixed broadband services – cable, DSL and FTTH – the market research firm RVA LLC estimates that 40 per cent are accessing at least some video programming through OTT video services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and iTunes, as well as through a variety of applications for mobile devices through the Internet. However, for those who are under age 35, the figure jumps to 70 per cent.
    “It is clear that a fast-growing number of people are looking to the Internet to get the video programming they want – when and where they want it,” said FTTH Council President Heather Burnett Gold. “But this survey shows that the trend is very much a home-based phenomenon, where televisions, tablets, smart-phones and other devices are drawing broadband signal from a household wi-fi router that is served by a wireline connection.”
    “With younger subscribers driving this practice, the trend toward video over the Internet will accelerate household bandwidth requirements, particularly as broadband subscribers demand better video quality and purchase more devices that connect to their Wi-Fi routers,” said Gold.
    For example, one-third of survey respondents said they own both a smart-phone and a tablet device, and members of that group reported that they are using at least one of those devices during almost half the time they are watching television. More than 80 per cent of these heavy users of mobile devices say they connect them to their broadband service via Wi-Fi when they are using them at home. Survey results showed that the average broadband-connected household currently has five Internet-connected devices.
    “This is actually about more than bandwidth,” said Gold. “It’s about having unwavering speed and a noise-free network so that over-the-top services and applications to play flawlessly, without any hesitation or buffering. And on that issue FTTH networks have proven themselves as the consumer’s access technology of choice.”
    Gold noted that bandwidth is already an issue, pointing to a recent study in which the video stream optimisation company Conviva examined analysed 22.6 billion streams for some of the largest content owners on the web. The company found that 60 per cent of the streams suffered from some quality degradation leading to re-buffering, slow start up or poor picture quality.
    The RVA survey also showed that more than 13 per cent of under-35 broadband users identified themselves as getting all of their television/movie programming through the Internet and not accessing broadcast or cable programming at all. About half of the people in this group have never purchased programming from a cable or satellite television provider. Across all age categories, about five per cent of broadband consumers are now receiving all of their programming from the Internet.
    “When you add up the accelerating demand for sharper video, uninterrupted streaming and faster downloads, it is clear that North America will increasingly need the unparalleled bandwidth and super-fast connectivity that fibre to the home networks deliver,” said Gold.
    As part of the survey, respondents were asked to test the bandwidth they are currently receiving via speedtest.net and report their findings. The results showed a growing gap between households connected with fibre to the home services and those relying on other access technologies such as cable modem and DSL. FTTH subscribers reported an average of 23.9 megabits per second (mbps) download speeds and 14.2 mbps connectivity for uploading information, well ahead of the average 15mbps/2.8mbps that cable customers are receiving and 4.6mpbs/0.7mbps for DSL households.

    DirecTV backs TWC in CBS retrans row
    By Colin Mann 05/08/2013



    US pay-TV provider DirecTV has come out in support of Time Warner Cable in its retransmission dispute with CBS, suggesting that the conduct of content companies had “reached a new low” in such battles.
    After failing to reach agreement by a 5 p.m. deadline on Friday August 2, Time Warner Cable (TWC) dropped the network in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and several other markets. That deadline was one of a number set since the existing contract expired at the end of June. In the meantime, the network was kept on the cable company’s line up.
    “Unfortunately, despite our continued efforts to reach agreement, CBS has been uncompromising – making demands that are completely inconsistent with the agreements we’ve reached with hundreds of other broadcasters,” said TWC CEO Glenn Britt in a statement. “As a result, we were unable to reach an agreement by this evening’s deadline and we are no longer authorised to carry the CBS-owned broadcast affiliates, such as KCBS Los Angeles, WCBS New York, and KTVT Dallas, as well as other CBS-owned cable networks, such as Showtime, TMC, Flix, Smithsonian and CBS Primetime on Demand programming. We regret that CBS has put Time Warner Cable and, most importantly, our customers in this position.”
    “We deeply regret this ill-advised action, which is injurious not only to our many affected viewers, but also to Time Warner Cable itself,” said CBS, in a statement. Throughout this process, Time Warner Cable has conducted negotiations in a combative and non-productive spirit, indulging in pointless brinksmanship and distorted public positioning – such as the fictional and ridiculous 600% increase CBS supposedly demanded – while maintaining antiquated positions no longer held by any other programming distributor in the business. CBS, for its part, is eager to make an agreement in line with the kind it has struck with every other cable, satellite and telco provider, and has continually sought reasonable term extensions to get that job done. This is the first time in its history that CBS has been dropped from a cable system. Time Warner Cable, on the other hand, has a long history of taking channels off the air – more than 50 in the last five years alone. It has also chosen to drop Showtime, which is owned by CBS, a move that is completely unnecessary and totally punitive to its subscribers.
    What CBS seeks, and what we always have sought from the beginning, is fair compensation for the most-watched television network with the most popular content in the world. We will not accept less. We will not sign away rights not granted to others. We will not give up our channel position or any other asset by which our viewers identify us. We will also not be subjected to pointless maneuvers like a series of one-hour extensions and mini-drops that do nothing for either side but annoy our viewers. We hope and believe this period of darkness will be short and that we can all get back to the business of providing the best entertainment, news and sports to the Time Warner Cable customers we both serve.”
    “Please know that Time Warner Cable is at war with no one. We exist as a company to connect people to the things they love and CBS’s shows and sports are a few of those things. We want to put CBS back on the air at a price that makes sense for us and our customers. That’s not war, that’s what our customers say they want – good programming at a fair price and on reasonable terms. We hope CBS will join us at the negotiating table and agree to a contract that is in the best interest of not only CBS, but everyone who enjoys watching television,” concluded Britt.
    “Just like the characters in CBS’s Under The Dome, all pay TV customers are feeling trapped and helpless as broadcasters expect them to absorb ridiculous rate increases for the exact same programming. In trying to protect our own customers, DirecTV has certainly had its share of these battles, so we applaud Time Warner Cable for fighting back against exorbitant programming cost increases. We are also appalled to learn that CBS is now punishing DirecTV customers, who may happen to have Time Warner as their Internet provider, by denying them access to CBS content online. The conduct of content companies in their efforts to extract outrageous fees from distributors and consumers may have reached a new low,” said DirecTV.
