    Sun relaunches Kiran TV as film channel
    Rebecca Hawkes | 06-08-2013

    India's Sun Network has repackaged and relaunched its Malayalam music channel Kiran TV as a free-to-air 24-hour movie channel for all ages.
    "From catching a Malayalam classic to a cult film to masala madness to new-age cinema, Kiran will now unify the varied tastes of the film buff in you under one channel," states the Sun Network.
    The Kerala-based channel, which first launched in January 2005 as a 24-hour music channel, has been carrying movies for some time. However, now the channel is being tagged 'Full Time Cinema'.
    "Content is king and reinventing it to suit the audience demand is crucial. Since there were too many platforms offering music, we thought of adding a movie channel instead, as it targets a huge chunk of the Southern market," Saju David, vice president – programming of Malayalam clusters, Sun Group, is quoted as saying by Exchange4Media.
    Kiran Movies will show a variety of Malayalam, Tamil and Hollywood films in a range of genres, including action, romance and classics.
    A new music channel may reportedly be launched by the Sun Group at the end of August.

    Ramaz Ankh Amoun is Egypt's most watched Ramadan TV show
    Rebecca Hawkes | 06-08-2013

    Ramaz has topped the Ramadan TV viewing charts in Egypt for the third consecutive year, with 88% watching the latest incarnation, Ramez Ankh Amoun, a new survey from Intelligent Research Service (IRS) has found.
    Television viewing peaks each evening around Iftar from 7-10pm as Muslims break the fast during the month of Ramadan, when 44% of Egyptians tune into watch a variety of programmes, says IRS.
    Of the all-important Arabic series, Al-Shak has attracted the most viewers in Egypt, with 41% of viewers during the first four weeks of Ramadan. Al-Aaraf is currently attracting the second largest audience share.
    Both series have sustained their top positions since the first day of Ramadan says IRS, thanks in part to their stars, Hussain Fahmy and Adel Emam.
    Hekayet Hayat is the third most popular Arabic series in Egypt, followed by Al-Kebeer Awy, Mazag Al-Khair and Alzoga Althanya.
    "Viewership in Ramadan significantly escalates compared to the rest of the year. This is matched by major productions whether for Arabic series or popular programs and shows," said Dr Mohamed Kamal, CEO, IRS.
    "The weekly surveys help us to better understand viewership trends throughout the month of Ramadan," added Kamal.
    With 88%, Al-Hayat has had the most viewers per channel, followed by CBC (72%), Al-Nahar (48%), CBC Drama (24%), and then Al-Hayat Mossalssalat and Dream 1, each with 17%.
    Ramez Qalb Al-Assad and Ramez Thaalab Al-Sahraa were the two most popular shows in Egypt during Ramadan for the past two years.
    Following Ramez Ankh Amoun this year, the second most popular programme in Egypt so far in Ramadan has been Mossalssaliko, followed by Men Ghair Zaal, then the increasingly popular Khatawat Al-Shaytan.

    Sky Deutschland picks S3 Group for set-top box testing
    Jörn Krieger | 07-08-2013

    German pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland has chosen the new, automated large-scale testing system StormTest Development Centre HS64 developed by Irish technology company S3 Group for stress, reliability, performance and monitoring testing on a large number of set-top boxes simultaneously.
    The solution, which can address up to 64 devices at the same time, is designed to check the robustness of new software releases and product upgrades by simulating usage conditions in subscribers' households. With the system, Sky Deutschland wants to further enhance the quality of its customer premises equipment (CPE) and customer service.
    "As we evolve our digital TV platform on a daily basis it is important that we can execute stress, reliability, performance and monitoring testing efficiently on a large number of set-top boxes simultaneously and with different releases at the same time," said Stefan Kastl, director CPE at Sky Deutschland. "With StormTest Development Centre HS64, we now have the ability to do so across all our DTH and cable set-top boxes. We believe this cutting-edge solution further enhances the outstanding quality of our Sky CPE and service."
    The new product model in the StormTest Development Centre family will be featured on S3 Group's stand at IBC 2013 (hall 3, stand B18).

    Venezuela's pay-TV subscriptions increase 26.85% in Q2
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 07-08-2013

    Venezuela's telecoms authority Conatel has published figures for Q2 2013 revealing that the pay-TV sector has experienced the greatest growth in the country, with over 800,000 new subscribers, an increase of 26.85%, taking the total to almost four million.
    According to Conatel, this is due to new packages and operators and cheaper offers, which have led to Venezuela seeing 52% of households paying for TV.
    Investment in the telecom sector grew 6.68% compared to Q2 2012. Between April and June 2013, over $300 million was invested in improving communication services in Venezuela. The sector's income increased as well; with an invoice of $2,440 million, the telecoms entries grew over 33% compared to last year.
    The country is also increasing the rate of Internet coverage, which currently reaches 43% of the population with fixed or mobile connections. 12.72 million Venezuelans are connected, but still only 2.15 million have broadband services.
    Regarding telephone users, the coverage rate is 102%. By growing 5.1% in Q2, Venezuela reached 30.5 million mobile lines.

    Movistar, Claro, VTR reinforce commitment to online TV in Chile
    Parent Category: News | 07-08-2013

    The three biggest pay-TV operators in Chile – Movistar, Claro and VTR – are to reinforce their online TV services before the end of the year, according to the Diario Financiero.
    This commitment to on-demand and over-the-top (OTT) services comes at a time when the market in Chile is growing and Internet connections are on the increase.
    Telefónica's subsidiary will launch Movistar Play within the next six months. There are no more firm details as yet, but Sebastián Precht, Movistar Chile's IPTV manager, said that "it will be released soon" and that "there are only some small details that need to be repaired".
    Claro Chile is continuing to extend its video-on-demand (VOD) platform throughout the whole of Latin America. Following launches in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay, Claro TV online will be launched in Chile before the end of the year, according to Gerardo Muñoz, Claro Chile's CEO, who was quoted in Diario Financiero.
    Regarding VTR, which has over 40% of Chile's pay-TV subscriptions according to LAMAC's latest report, it is also working on a multiscreen service. The company is looking to "make our position in on-demand services stronger by bringing content everywhere, where our customers need it," said Edwing Elberg, VTR's product development manager.
    TV everywhere is important in Chile, because, as in some other Latin American countries, fixed Internet connections are not widespread. But 3G and 4G connections are on the increase, growing nearly 700% over the last three years. Currently, there are 2.2 million fixed Internet lines and over five million mobile Internet connections.

    Yomvi available on Android devices
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 07-08-2013

    Canal+'s online platform Yomvi has finally launched an app which works on Android devices. The development has been long-awaited by Yomvi customers, who until now could only use the multiscreen app on iOS devices and Samsung Smart TVs.
    The app is not yet in its definitive version as it only includes Canal+'s sports schedule. But it seems that Prisa's pay-TV platform has finally found a solution to fit the wide range of Android tablets and smartphones. The company's software developers had faced problems with developing one app for the hundreds of Android devices present in the market. But at last the app is available for 4.0 and higher versions.
    The Android app allows users to watch Canal+1, Canal+Liga, Canal+ Liga Multi, Canal+Liga de Campeones, Canal+ Golf and Canal+ Deportes.
    There is no date as yet for the release of the complete version.

    CBS rejects TWC à la carte solution to retrans row
    Joseph O'Halloran | 07-08-2013

    The retrans row between Time Warner Cable and CBS has hit a new low after the content firm rejected out of hand an offer to show its programmes on an à la carte basis.
    In an open letter to CBS president and CEO Les Moonves, TWC chairman and CEO Glen Britt proposed that the two firms immediately agree to resume carriage with new economics restoring popular programmes to screens after the dispute had seen CBS disappear from the bouquets of TWC customers once the contract between the two companies expired.
    Claiming to be acting for the benefit of consumers, Britt offered to engage in a new model for carriage if CBS was still insistent in asking for fees which have been described by TWC as “unprecedented, unreasonable and unacceptable”.
    In his letter, Britt said: “We write to propose that CBS and Time Warner Cable immediately agree to resume carriage with the new economics TWC reluctantly agreed to during our negotiations, while employing all the other terms and conditions of our recently expired contracts. Although those terms are not ideal to CBS or TWC … we believe we should continue to live with them in the interest of restoring CBS immediately for the benefit of consumers. Alternatively, if you are unwilling to agree to this proposal, we would also be willing to resume carriage by allowing CBS to make its stations available on an à la carte basis and on terms of its choosing, with 100% of that price remitted to CBS. This way, rather than debating the point, we would allow customers to decide for themselves how much value they ascribe to CBS programming."
    Britt also called on CBS to cease immediately its blocking of CBS.com content to TWC broadband customers, whether or not it accepted or rejected the proposals. However, he did not have to wait long for an answer, with a CBS spokesperson, as quoted by Reuters news agency, slamming the new offer as “a sham” and “a public relations vehicle designed to distract from the fact that Time Warner Cable is not negotiating in good faith".
