    Rebecca Hawkes | 13-08-2013

    A star-studded charity event to raise funds for the Uttarakhand flood victims is to be shown live across the Star India TV network on 15 August.
    The seven-hour event, entitled Saath Hai Hum - Uttarakhand, will be broadcast live from Mumbai on Star Plus, Life OK, Star Pravah, Channel V, Star Utsav, Star Plus HD and Life OK HD. It will also be shown live in the UK on Star TV from 7.30am-2.30pm (BST).
    The extravaganza will feature some of the biggest names from Bollywood, including Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, AR Rahman, Lata Mangeshkar, Ayushmann Khurana, Akshay Kumar, Pritam, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Ajay Devgn, Kajol, Boman Irani and Prasoon Joshi.
    Some of Star's top TV celebrities will also appear, including those from Diya Aur Baati Hum, Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara, Saraswatichandra, Savdhaan India, Devon Ke Dev Mahadev and India's Dancing Superstars.
    The Star India gala expects to raise around INR300 million (€3.7 million) to help rebuild the state, which suffered devastating floods in June. Star India will donate all the advertising revenue from the show to non-governmental organisations working in Uttarakhand, and the celebrities will appear without a fee.
    "The noble initiative is an opportunity for the entire Hindi film industry to stand by the very people who have showered us with unconditional love and have made us who we are.
    "We have come together to ease the pain of fellow men who suffered the agonising pain that this unprecedented calamity brought with itself," said actor Amitabh Bachchan.
    Uday Shankar, CEO, Star India added: "The task of rebuilding is difficult. But it isn't impossible if we join forces. Star India is glad to partner groups that are not only focused on providing immediate relief but are building sustainable solutions to equip people prepare for the future. The unflinching support of the stars is humbling and in turn will help us extend a helping hand to those in need."

    Samsung partners OSN for Smart TV app
    Rebecca Hawkes | 13-08-2013

    Samsung's connected televisions are to feature a catch-up television service from Middle East pay-TV operator OSN, providing regional viewers with the opportunity to watch shows on-demand up to 14 days after they were transmitted.
    The OSN Play platform is already available as an app on Samsung tablets, smartphones and laptops in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
    "Our continuing partnership with Samsung now allows OSN subscribers with Samsung's 2013 Smart TVs to access a wide array of their favourite content on demand. The OSN Play platform includes content from TV channels such as: OSN Movies, OSN First, OSN Sports 1 & 2, Disney, National Geographic and Food Network," said David Hanson, director of digital, OSN.
    Recent research from Samsung indicates that 88% of their Smart TV consumers' time is now dedicated to video streaming, and so there is an increase in popularity for on-demand apps on their connected TVs.
    Vinod Nair, general manager - TV business, Samsung Gulf Electronics, added: "OSN Play adds to the growing amount of high quality content that we have made available for consumers at the click of a button. By offering OSN Play on our Smart TVs we are bringing the latest movies and TV shows to our consumers, giving them more choice, flexibility and enhancing their viewing experience."

    South African pay-TV platform DStv is adding the crime and investigation entertainment station Foxcrime to its bouquet.

A Classic Crime block also includes NYPD Blue, Remington Steel, CHIPS and Streets of San Francisco, while Case Files: Africa covers infamous crime stories from across the Continent.
    "Foxcrime's steady subscriber growth and enduring ratings success since its original 2006 launch in Italy, is the product of a killer mix of addictive crime programming and Fox brand sensibility," said Alessandro Tucci, SVP and General Manager for FIC Africa.
    "DStv remains the biggest player in pay-TV throughout Africa and we are pleased to bring this new bespoke brand to their platform and especially South African viewers."

    Spanish series to premiere new seasons at fifth FesTVal
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 15-08-2013

    The Spanish city of Vitoria will once again be the centre of national TV production from 2-7 September when it hosts the fifth edition of FesTVal.
    Many productions will premiere their new seasons during the event, with Águila Roja, Isabel, Galerías Velvet, España en Serie and El Tiempo Entre Costuras all revealing their new characters and plots.
    The series which are produced by Spain's main TV channels, including Antena 3 and Canal+, will be the leitmotiv throughout the week, which focuses on the present and future of Spanish TV.
    TVE's Isabel will premiere its second season during FesTVal's opening, while Águila Roja – lately the public channel's most successful production – will show its fifth season on the third day of the festival.
    The star of the second day will be Dreamland, a Mediaset production. During its first season, an international group of artists will reveal what goes on inside the music and dance world. Discovery Max will also premiere El Mago Pop, a magic show led by Antonio Díaz, winner of the national magician's prize.
    Antena 3's Galerías Velvet will be released during the third day, sharing the spotlight with Águila Roja.
    The fourth day will focus on España en Serie, a Canal+ series which looks at the TV history of Spain and its most emblematic shows. The country's main actors are participating in this project, which already has four episodes filmed.
    The 200th episode of Aida, one of Spain's most successful comedies, the ETB production Mi Edificio Favorito and Atresmedia's El Tiempo Entre Costuras will close the FesTVal.

    Roku, Apple TV penetration doubles in two years
    Parent Category: News | 15-08-2013

    The number of US broadband households with a streaming video media device, such as a Roku or an Apple TV, has doubled since 2011, reaching 14% in 2013, new research has revealed.
    Parks Associates noted that Roku is the most-used streaming video media device in the US market. In a first quarter 2013 independent survey of 10,000 US broadband households, Parks Associates found, among households with a streaming video media device, 37% primarily use a Roku compared to 24% that primarily use an Apple TV.
    Parks Associates analysts predict the number of connected TV devices sold worldwide will reach 330 million annually by 2017, almost double the number to be sold in 2013. Average product prices will decline over this time, but annual sales revenues will increase almost 100% by 2017 as more households buy smart TVs, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players and streaming video media devices.
    "Innovations such as next-gen game consoles and 4K or Ultra HD TVs will boost unit sales for these devices, but overall, consumers are reluctant to replace these big-ticket items solely for smart upgrades," said Barbara Kraus, director of research, Parks Associates. "As a result, streaming video media devices will have a thriving market because they can offer innovations such as streaming video at low prices. Devices such as Roku's streaming players and Google's Chromecast will benefit from these market conditions."
    Parks Associates analysts report this success creates new challenges in differentiation for manufacturers and service providers. Connected TV: Trends and Innovation reports average device prices will decline by as much as half, so it will be critical for manufacturers and service providers to innovate today in order to capture new and recurring revenue streams in advertising and content placement.
    "Roku customers are passionate about streaming, and we are delighted that independent research shows that we are the most popular streaming platform measured by usage on a US household basis," said Anthony Wood, founder and CEO at Roku.

    Turner launches TCM + 1 catch-up channel in UK
    Michelle Clancy | 15-08-2013

    Turner Broadcasting has launched a 24-hour, time-shifted repeats channel in the UK, dubbed TCM + 1. The dedicated channel replaces the existing eight hour programming block on TCM2, which runs from 8pm-4pm, offering viewers 16 hours more programming per day.
    TCM + 1 will air on Sky 318 and Virgin Media 417, showing all TCM content one hour later. That's particularly good for daytime audiences, previously not serviced by TCM2.
    TCM is regularly the second highest rating film channel in the UK, with ratings up 52% year-on-year. In 2012, TCM experienced its best year in the last decade, doubling its viewership in just three years.
    TCM's success is driven by its rich mix of Hollywood greats and contemporary favourites, as well as the success of cinematic series including Longmire, Hell on Wheels, Band of Brothers, Deadwood and Rome.
    "TCM has experienced a huge surge in popularity in the UK and there is a demand for further access to its popular mix of classic and contemporary cinematic content," said Jaime Ondarza, senior vice president for the UK, France and Italy at Turner Broadcasting. "TCM + 1 responds to this, giving viewers more opportunity to watch TCM content 24 hours a day. This is important for our audiences who value the time shift-service and the certainty of knowing what they can watch and when."
    He added: "The new channel would not have been possible without the support of our platform partners, Sky and Virgin Media, and we are extremely grateful to them for their continued support."

    Survey: most people want to 'friend' TV characters on Facebook
    Michelle Clancy | 15-08-2013

    When it comes to engagement with TV content, a new study from Latitude has found that 78% of respondents want to 'friend' a character digitally (e.g., receive Facebook updates, text messages, etc), with the ability to sway the character's decisions — just as with a real friend. And this opens up new advertising possibilities.
    Brands have an opportunity to reach consumers through more seamless integrations with content they're already hooked on; 73% of those surveyed said they're interested in discovering real-world products or services at relevant points in a story.
    "Technology is creating new opportunities to engage with narratives — but it's not just about accessing more content in more places; it's about the opportunity to bring stories out of the screen and into our lives," said Neela Sakaria, EVP of Latitude. "We found audiences are more ready than ever to embrace new tech-driven possibilities for stories to impact us more deeply: allowing us to see new points of view, inspiring us to live better, and even changing the ways we think about brands."
    As characters become more real, it's natural that they should live full, 24/7 lives even when people aren't actively tuning in, Latitude said. When significant events happen, fans might receive text messages from characters or push alerts from official news sources. In fact, 91% of respondents said that narratives with a real-time story-world would motivate them to tune in more often to ensure they weren't missing anything.
    The most popular second-screen interactions for TV shows tend to be goal-oriented, such as earning rewards (80% interested), voting to decide a show's outcome (79%) or making a purchase (76%). About 41% use a second screen at least daily while watching TV, which includes 50% of 18-34-year-olds and 35% of 35-59-year-olds. And, 67% say that using a second screen to interact with TV content would increase their overall TV viewing; this includes 63% of 35-59-year-olds.
    94% feel companies should treat the "real world" (e.g., places, people, or objects) as another platform that can interact with content they view on other devices. This stands out as a particularly compelling opportunity for retailers with physical locations.
    "People are enthusiastic about new storytelling possibilities, but there's no 'one-size-fits all approach,'" says Kim Gaskins, director of content development at Latitude, who co-led the study. "When we compared people along dimensions that aren't normally considered — like the desire for more active participation, more immersion, or more personal impact it confirmed that new dimensions of experience, and new ways to measure them, will become even more important as stories extend across and beyond screens."

This will include the features Tiny Furniture from Lena Dunham and Computer Chess from Andrew Bujalski. Sundance Channel will showcase documentaries throughout the month as well, including the Matador from Stephen Higgins.

    "At DIRECTV we are very excited to launch Sundance Channel in Latin America," said Bruce Churchill, president of DirecTV Latin America.

Following its launch on DirecTV Latin America, Sundance Channel will be made available for distribution to pay-TV operators across the region.
    Sundance Channel will be a Spanish-language, 24-hour linear network.
