    Hannover House launches VODwiz for Roku
    Michelle Clancy | 11-08-2013

    Hannover House, a boutique book publisher that has evolved into a full-service media company with a dedicated Roku-enabled IPTV site, has launched a pay-per-view and video-on-demand (VOD) portal in beta known as VODwiz.
    The website and IPTV channel are designed for consumers to stream thousands of independent films and major studio titles directly to connected televisions, computers and any Wi-Fi-enabled device (including cell phones, tablets and most e-readers).
    The VODwiz beta site can be accessed through Roku-enabled set-top devices or through the Internet at Vodwiz. The company said that over the next few weeks and months, titles will be added from more than a dozen studio labels, with a short-term goal of 2,000 or more titles for streaming.
    "Long term, VODwiz wants to be a destination choice for any and all mainstream and independent programming available on a pay-per-view or video-on-demand basis," said Hannover House CEO Eric Parkinson and president Fred Shefte in a business update.
    "Existing VOD sites, such as Netflix and iTunes, have a very limited selection of titles, often limited to major studio hits. The vision for VODwiz is to allow consumers to select whatever titles they want to watch, with transactional prices ranging from $0.99 to $2.99 for most programming, with premium pricing for special events and selected major studio titles."

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 11-08-2013

    Cable platform ONO has been chosen as National Champion to represent Spain in the European Business Awards.
    The bi-annual prize will be awarded in April 2014 and the pay-TV company has been selected to compete in the Millcom Award for Environmental & Corporate Sustainability category.
    The awards aim to recognise the development, innovation, commercial results and sustainability of companies around Europe. ONO points to its waste management models and the sustainable development as the basis of its strategy.
    ONO, which leads the cable market in Spain and is still growing its operations despite the country's financial situation, also has strong environmental policies centred on decreasing power consumption and CO2 emissions.
    "It's really a compliment to be selected as National Champion" said Adrian Trip, from the awards organisation. "We have had high level candidates during the past seven years, from organisations which are really passionate about their businesses".

    Spain consumes 388MB mobile data monthly
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 11-08-2013

    Spain's mobile users consume 88 minutes of voice, 388MB of data and 15 SMS each month, according to the latest report by MásMóvil.
    Over 84,000 customers were asked about their habits in first half of the year, during which time data usage increased and SMS fell markedly.
    Data consumption is clearly on the increase, pushed by the growth of cloud activities and online video platforms, which call for a greater use of data instead of physical supports. During first six months, data has grown 9%, from 356MB to 388MB. But compared to 2011, the use of data services has increased 28%.
    According to the report, the growth tendency is driven by smartphones, which are already the most popular telephone device among Spanish users. Over 60% of devices are smartphones, and this has definitely changed consumption habits.
    As a clear example, SMS, which had been the most popular communication system up to now, has fallen 33% during the first six months. Voice consumption has remained stable.
    MásMóvil's report classifies customer habits within age groups. Data consumption is most popular among those 25 and under, while people aged 25-25 use more voice services. The habits of Spain's younger population show the greatest data use growth, increasing from 300MB in 2012 to nearly 400MB.

    Kantar and Twitter join forces to offer social TV analytics
    Michelle Clancy | 11-08-2013

    Social TV measurement continues to ramp up with an alliance between Kantar Media and Twitter to develop a suite of tools to support planning and analytics for the UK TV industry.
    The first of these new products will be available commercially to UK broadcasters, media agencies and the wider industry in 2014. Bringing together social TV data from Twitter with the audience research algorithms of Kantar Media, the tools will enable broadcasters to assess programmes and series, plan programme promotions more effectively and assist media buyers and sellers in integrating social data more comprehensively into the TV component of their media mix.
    "The relevance of social media buzz to the TV industry continues to grow," said Andy Brown, chairman of Kantar Media. "Broadcasters and advertisers alike are experiencing phenomenal growth in the level of buzz related to TV programming and associated commercials in recent years. Within the social media landscape, Twitter is the only platform that is public, real-time and conversational."
    These characteristics have made Twitter a unique data set for the purposes of measuring live social TV conversation at scale and bringing new tools to broadcasters, agencies and brands to understand and amplify the social engagement about their programming, he reasoned.
    "Television and Twitter are deeply complementary forms of media," said Twitter COO Ali Rowghani. "Our users love using Twitter while tuned into television to interact with talent and participate in the live social conversation about TV. In this way, Twitter has become a live companion to the TV viewing experience for millions of people in the UK and around the world, and we are thrilled that Kantar Media will be bringing its considerable audience measurement experience to bear to develop tools and standards for the industry."
    Earlier in the week, Nielsen announced the findings of an analysis of minute-to-minute trends in Nielsen's Live TV Ratings and Tweets measurement for 221 broadcast prime time programme episodes. Using Nielsen's SocialGuide tracking, the findings show that live TV ratings had a statistically significant impact in related tweets among 48% of the episodes sampled, and that the volume of tweets caused statistically significant changes in live TV ratings among 29% of the episodes.
    "Using time series analysis, we saw a statistically significant causal influence indicating that a spike in TV ratings can increase the volume of tweets, and, conversely, a spike in tweets can increase tune-in," said Paul Donato, chief research officer at Nielsen.

    LOVEFiLM brings NBCUniversal kids' programming to UK
    Michelle Clancy | 11-08-2013

    Amazon's European online video service LOVEFiLM has inked a deal to bring children's programming from NBCUniversal to the LOVEFiLM Instant Streaming Service.
    As a result of the partnership, LOVEFiLM.com members can now stream a range of television series and films featuring beloved characters from the NBCUniversal library, including Curious George and Barbie: Princess Charm School.
    Additional children's TV series included under the agreement include classic franchises such as The Land Before Time, based on the American animated adventure film; Maisy, the animated series based on the picture books created by British illustrator, Lucy Cousins; and the animated stop-motion series about a crime-busting mouse, Rastamouse.
    "From talking to our members we know there is a real demand for top quality entertainment for younger viewers, so we are delighted to add such great shows to our already vast library of kids content," said Simon Morris, CMO at LOVEFiLM. "From nostalgic classics to modern favourites, there is a wealth of child-friendly series available on LOVEFiLM Instant and these latest additions allow us to offer our ever-growing audience more choice than ever before."
    Earlier in the week, Amazon added shows from Viacom International Media Networks for its LOVEFiLM video-on-demand (VOD) service in Germany.
    That offering comprises series aired by Viacom's channels Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and MTV, including the children's programmes SpongeBob and Blue's Clues from Nickelodeon. Comedy Central will contribute Reno 911!, a parody on US police series.

    Spurred by HD video, coaxial cable market set to grow in North America
    Parent Category: News | 11-08-2013

    The North America coaxial cable market is expected to reach a value of $3.1 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2012 to 2018.
    This growth is primarily attributed to the rising need for accessing HD video and broadband via connected devices in multiple rooms, according to Transparency Market Research.
    The US represented the largest market for coaxial cable, with a market share of 59.2% in 2012. However, Mexico and Canada are expected to see significant growth because of rising investments in telecom, broadband and broadcasting sectors for improving communication infrastructure.
    In terms of applications, the video distribution segment is expected to remain the fastest growing segment for the North America. That segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% through 2018. The growth of this segment is primarily attributed to growing popularity of using video-on-demand (VOD), IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) services to access high definition videos over connected devices, the firm said.
    Coaxial cables are widely used in data communication and in manufacturing communication equipment and devices. End users for coaxial cables include CATV companies, Internet service providers, telephone service providers, military and aerospace industry, system integrators, construction industry and communication equipment manufacturers for medical, marine, automobile and other industries. Internet service providers are the largest end-user segment of coaxial cables in North America. This segment is expected to maintain its dominating position due to growing number of IPTV and internet service providers, Transparency said.
    The North America coaxial cable industry as a whole looks very competitive, the report found, with a large number of multinational and domestic manufacturers. No single player has a stronghold on the market and the top five players accounted for about 55% of the overall market share. Some key manufacturers of coaxial cable in North America include TE Connectivity, General Cable, LS Cable and Systems, Belden, Amphenol and Coleman.

    Telecom NZ ponders Internet TV
    Parent Category: News | 12-08-2013

    Telecom New Zealand is planning to get more involved in online entertainment, but hasn't made a final decision, says chief executive Simon Moutter.
    The company recently signed a special access deal with Internet start-up Coliseum for the Barclays English Premier League in order to test the waters. It sells Coliseum's PremierLeaguePass at a 15% discount and offers it free of charge to selected new customers for one year.
    According to stuff.co.nz, Moutter said Telecom would "not follow any model that involves a set-top box; we have no interest in that".
    "We think let's go with the 'Internet breakthrough model' which is to use the Internet to deliver content to the home and Wi-Fi to do the jump from the modem to the [television]. The world of smart TVs and clever dongles we think takes care of that jump and minimises the economic hurdles."

    DISH and Raycom end retrans row and blackout
    Michelle Clancy | 12-08-2013

    DISH Network and local TV affiliate owner Raycom have resolved a retransmission dispute that took stations across the country offline for the satcaster beginning 1 August.
    The companies said in a short statement that Raycom stations will be back for DISH Network customers "overnight" — no other details were given about the agreement.
    Raycom owns or controls 53 stations in 36 markets including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CW and MyNetworkTV affiliates in midsized cities that include Cleveland, Toledo, Honolulu, Tucson, Baton Rouge, West Palm Beach, Louisville and Memphis.
    The stations went dark when the previous carriage contract expired, after DISH and Raycom failed to come to terms in time — reportedly, DISH said that Raycom was asking for as much as 300% increase on existing rates.
    DISH contributes around 15% of Raycom's viewers, according to SNL Kagan.

    AT&T pumps millions into Illinois U-verse expansion
    Michelle Clancy | 12-08-2013

    In the first half of 2013, AT&T invested nearly $625 million in its wireless and wired networks in Illinois, as a part of AT&T's Project Velocity IP, a three-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks and U-verse strategy.
    Mobile is part of the equation as well: the investments included deployment of new macro cell sites, small cells and distributed antenna systems across the state, along with expansion of 4G LTE and new Wi-Fi hot spots. The idea is to offer TV and broadband anywhere, extensive HD channels, competitive Internet speeds and flexible bundles.
    "AT&T's network investment supports Illinois' economic health and our residents' ability to succeed at work and at home," Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said. "The expansion of 4G mobile Internet access helps to ensure that people across the state have greater access to the latest mobile services and applications."
    As part of Project VIP, AT&T also deployed advanced wired IP broadband connections for consumers, including AT&T U-verse services for nearly 32,250 customer locations in Illinois, in just the first six months of 2013. Project Velocity IP is also spurring the deployment of advanced fibre optic connections to thousands of Illinois businesses. In the first six months of 2013, nearly 6,100 additional business customer locations in Illinois, located in 125 multi-tenant office buildings across the state, were connected.
    "Fast, reliable connectivity is essential to both quality of life and competitiveness at work," said AT&T Illinois president Paul La Schiazza. "No one understands that better than we do, and no one is doing more than AT&T to mobilise a world that works for people in Illinois. With initiatives like Project Velocity IP, we're working to ensure that Illinois consumers and businesses remain at the leading edge of broadband services."
    The 2013 year-to-date network investment builds on the more than $3.25 billion that AT&T has invested in its Illinois wireless and wired networks from 2010 through 2012.
