    Global TV revenue to reach €483.9bn in 2017
    August 19, 2013 08.25 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    vintage_tv-setWorldwide video and television revenues will increase from €392bn in 2012 to €483bn in 2017, according to iDate.
    Although video consumption has never been stronger than today, global video market revenues slow down because of permanent decrease in physical video distribution revenues, while business models of traditional TV are subject to the pressure of video over-the-top OTT services, according to Florence Le Borgne of the French based research company.
    To date, linear television will continue to generate nearly 91% of video market revenues. The market share of the video on demand gains momentum compared to the physical video with 7.0% and 2.1% of the total video market by value in 2017 and +49.6% and +150.5% respectively between 2012 and 2017.
    Pay-TV revenue will grow by 22.7% between 2012 and 2017, or by an average 4.2% annually, to reach €210.2 billion in 2017.
    Ad revenue will enjoy even stronger growth of 25.8% between 2012 and 2017, to reach €191.4 billion in 2017. Public financing/licensing fees will continue to increase significantly (+7.5% in 5 years) to reach more than €37 billion in 2017.
    In this context, the number of TV households worldwide will reach 1.647 billion in 2017 (+9.9% in 5 years) and the number of digital TV households worldwide will come to 1.443 billion in 2017, which translates into 87.6% of TV households.
    able will the remain the chief access channel (571.7 million households in 2017) but will gradually lose ground to satellite and IPTV which will account for 32.4% and 8.5% of TV households, respectively, at the end of 2017.
    Despite the development of hybrid TV solutions, terrestrial TV will continue its decline and drop down to number three spot by 2017, with a roughly 24.4% share of the global market.
    As of video hard copy sales, they will total €10.3 billion in 2017, they are a part of a continuous decline as the global market will have shrunk to half of what it was in 2012. Blu-ray will be the most common format, while the rental market will overtake the permanent sales market.
    Meanwhile, video on demand (VoD) revenue will reach €34 billion in 2017, which is 150% more than in 2012
    OTT video will continue to be the biggest earner, generating 74% of total revenue.
    VoD will still be the dominant model on managed networks. It will generate €6.6 billion in 2017 versus €2.2 billion for subscription video on demand (S-VoD).

    Yahoo!7 extends PLUS7 to iOS
    Louise Duffy | 19-08-2013

    Yahoo!7, a 50-50 partnership between Australia's Seven West Media and Yahoo!, has made its catch-up TV service PLUS7 available on iOS devices.
    PLUS7 features Channel Seven programmes such as My Kitchen Rules, Home and Away, The X Factor, plus third party content such as Dawson’s Creek and An Idiot Abroad. It launched in March as a result of Yahoo!7's deal with Samsung Apps, which included having PLUS7 preloaded on selected smartphone and Samsung Galaxy devices.
    Damon Scarr, commercial director at Yahoo!7, said: “Our users have told us that they want the
    ability to catch-up on their favourite shows whenever and wherever they choose. Today’s
    announcement means more Australians will now be able to download the PLUS7 app and
    access Australia’s favourite TV shows.”
    PLUS7 availability on iOS follows the launch in July of the new Yahoo!7 video player, which achieved a threefold increase in completion rates for people watching catch-up TV long-form content on the Yahoo!7 network.
    A recent study of PLUS7 users found that 60% of people watching on PLUS7 had not seen the episode before; 48% were watching on PLUS7 as they had missed the chance to see the episode on broadcast; and 70% of people said they were 'definitely' or 'very likely' to watch future episodes on broadcast television.

    BT Sport signs up 10K+ pubs and shops for satellite sports coverage
    Michelle Clancy | 19-08-2013

    As the 2013-2014 Premier League season kicks off with a 1-0 win by Liverpool over Stoke, BT Sport has announced that more than 10,000 pubs, clubs, betting shops, hotels and other commercial premises have signed up to its TV packages.
    BT Sport is offering live Barclays Premier League, FA Cup football and Aviva Premiership rugby, at prices that the company says "massively undercut Sky," with a typical independent pub saving up to 76% compared with the satellite giant.
    BT Sport recently announced its first commercial contract in the gaming sector with the UK's largest independent bookmaker, Betfred. All three BT Sport channels will be available in all of Betfred's 1,370 bookmakers across the UK for the next three years.
    "Pre-season has gone incredibly well for the BT Sport team," said Bruce Cuthbert, director of commercial customers, BT Sport. "Signing up more than 10,000 commercial customers before a ball is kicked in the Premier League is a fantastic achievement. BT Sport is an affordable and exciting new service for pubs, clubs and their customers. Interest has been phenomenal and underlines the value, quality and broad appeal that we offer. We are particularly delighted that this includes brand new commercial customers for premium sports who have historically been unable to afford Sky's high prices."
    He added: "Our success in the commercial TV sports market adds to our achievements in the consumer area, where more than a million households are ready to enjoy BT Sport and where we have agreed a deal with Virgin Media to make BT Sport available to its 3.8 million TV customers."
    BT research has shown that nearly half of Britain's 75,000 pubs and clubs are showing free-to-air sport only – that is almost one-and-a-half times more than those who have Sky. 88% of independent pubs who do not have Sky say they would like to show Premier League football, but Sky is "just too expensive," the company said.
    BT Sport is available to all commercial premises including offices, golf clubs, sporting clubs, bookmakers and Corca-registered clubs, with prices starting from £75 per month.
    The BT Sport Pack includes BT's brand-new channels BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 2, as well as ESPN, all available in both standard definition and high definition. There will be 38 live and exclusive football matches from the Barclays Premier League – including 18 "first pick" matches – and up to 69 live rugby matches from the Aviva Premiership where BT will be the sole and exclusive broadcaster.
    BT Sport is also showing live football from Scottish Premier League plus ten Rangers matches, FA Cup ties and the Final and live coverage from the UEFA Europa League will also be shown.
    The channels will also feature WTA women's tennis, action from the UFC, Moto GP, Women's Super League football, England Under-21 games, Australian 'A' league soccer and action from Red Bull Extreme Sports.
    BT Sport is delivered via satellite technology, so that any business with Sky equipment just has to call BT to add BT Sport to their line-up.

    Paraguay delays Millicom's DTH licence
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 19-08-2013

    Juan Fernando Ruttia, a member of Paraguay's telecoms authority Conatel, has admitted to the country's media that the institution is holding up Millicom's Tigo direct-to-home (DTH) licence to operate in the country.
    This is said to be due to the importance of the company in a small market such as Paraguay's, and the impact a satellite service would have among national competitors.
    "There is a high level of pressure from different sectors, and it's not easy because Tigo owns a local sports channel," explained Ruttia.
    Since Tigo applied for the DTH licence, several voices from the telecoms market have tried to stop the process. The main problem for the other operators is that Tigo already owns the national football championship rights, which would give the DTH platform a privileged position.
    "Conatel's position has to be accepted," said Carlos Díaz, Tigo's manager. Paraguay's telecom authority added that there is no reason not to give the satellite licence to Tigo, but that some more time is needed.
    Currently, only Claro and TuVes are using a DTH licence in Paraguay, but another eight have been given to different telcos. Tigo will probably have to wait until Conatel's upcoming president starts working for the public institution, as the current incumbent, Carlos Gómez, is to leave Conatel in a few weeks.

    Technologists plan hybrid distribution project
    August 20, 2013 11.06 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    A group of prominent technology companies including Alcatel-Lucent, Hispasat, Nagra Kudelski, SmartJog and Teleste are to investigate the distribution of TV programmes and services over broadcast and broadband networks, focusing on key factors that will significantly impact the delivery of multimedia contents in Europe.
    H2B2VS – HEVC Hybrid Broadcast Broadband Video Services will be carried between 2013-2015 and will be coordinated by Thomson Video Networks.
    Lack of bandwidth is becoming a major problem for the development of future television. The new video formats, such as 3D and Ultra-HD, are bogged down by the limited transmission capacity of the current broadcast (terrestrial, satellite, cable) and broadband (ADSL, fibre, mobile) networks and video compression standards. Meanwhile, the consumer demand for new services is increasing heavily as the number of TV sets connected to the Internet is expected to grow to more than 500 million by 2016.
    The lack of sufficient bandwidth slows down the development of new value-added services associated with broadcast programmes, while in broadband networks it causes difficulties in guaranteeing quality of service to all subscribers.
    The H2B2VS project, quietly launched earlier this year, will focus on the hybrid distribution of TV programmes and services in broadcast and broadband networks while making use of the new video compression standard: High Efficient Video Codec (HEVC).
    The new standard increases network capacity by providing up to a 50% better compression ratio than is available with current technologies; while utilising the hybrid networks helps developing new attractive services for consumers without the need for huge investments.
    The project aims to propose solutions that will ensure the best quality of experience for end-users and drive the development of new video streaming services and future commercial products.

    Hollywood studios could dismantle Sky Movies
    August 20, 2013 11.01 Europe/London By Guy Bisson

    sky-movies“Studios are now in a position to go direct-to-consumer with Over-the-Top services. HBO is well placed to seed the UK market,” according to Guy Bisson, director of TV at IHS Electronics & Media.
    The Hollywood studios could dismantle the UK premium movie channel market by setting up their own direct-to-consumer Over-The-Top (OTT) television proposition. With as few as 1.35 million subscribers, such a service would cut out the middlemen represented by today’s pay TV providers and existing OTT services, such as Netflix.
    Any direct-to-consumer service in which content producers sold direct to viewers, would destroy the existing economics of both the movie and entertainment rights market and the linear pay channel market, meaning studios would need to make back the nearly £1.4 billion they earn from the UK market from rights and carriage agreements for movie and entertainment content.
    The figure of 1.35 million subscribers assumes the studios could earn a monthly income equal to the average ARPU generated by Sky today in the UK. But as a studio-led content play would not feature sports, at more realistic monthly income per customer based on the value currently attributed to movies and entertainment content in the UK, studios would need between 2.7 million and 4.3 million customers to make back the money they currently make from rights deals in the UK.
    The ‘content wall’ is reinforced further by the channel portfolios of the major studios and other large content owners which generate monthly fees per customer. These fees mean that certain content owners like Discovery, Disney and Viacom are more entrenched in the UK market than content producers not owning channels like Dreamworks and HBO.
    When the value of channel carriage is taken in to account, the major US studios and other large content owners would need on average between 2.8 million and 8.9 million direct customers to maintain current income, depending on the price charged.
    Direct-to-consumer OTT represents a viable competitive threat to Sky’s premium channel business, but full disintermediation, that also disrupted the linear channel businesses of the studios and other content owners, would be far more difficult to sustain.
    In particular, the linear channel as a model for content aggregation and the pay television provider or platform as an aggregator of channels both represent highly efficient vehicles for delivering a wide variety of content cost effectively to the consumer.
    New OTT aggregators like Netflix do not represent a potential sea change in the television value chain because they replicate the channel and platform aggregation models already in place between the producers and existing pay TV providers. Under a direct-to-consumer model, new OTT players like Netflix would also be a risk.
    Further, the conditions to develop a direct-to-consumer proposition do not currently exist in the UK, not least because there is no platform of scale that could deliver an audience with a propensity to purchase subscription content outside of the existing pay TV providers.
    For change to occur, the market would need to be seeded by producers which had high value content and a strong brand, but which were not too heavily entrenched in the market through channel ownership. HBO represents one such potential player in the UK. We believe HBO, which has already explored direct-to-consumer OTT propositions in international markets like Sweden, could develop a direct-to-consumer proposition in the UK that would sustain its current revenues with as few as half a million customers if it was able to charge £5 a month. Taking such a leap of faith would lay the ground work for others to follow.

    Ziggo reports 150,000 Cloud TV users
    August 21, 2013 09.27 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Ziggo UI Screen ShotDutch cable operator Ziggo has said that approximately 150,000 receivers have registered for its Cloud TV service.
    This accounts for approximately one-third of Ziggo VOD activity. The 150K total represent a three-month increase of 150% for Active Video’s “browser in the cloud”.
    CloudTV’s “write once, deploy everywhere approach” moves the HTML5 browser to the cloud and streams the fully-formed UI to such devices as existing and new QAM and IP STBs, CI+ modules, HDMI sticks and SmartTVs. ACG Research has shown how CloudTV can accelerate the rollout of consistent, branded UIs on any STB or connected device at TCO savings of up to 83%.
    Using CloudTV, Ziggo this year became the first cable operator in the world to provide interactive services without built-in hardware. CloudTV also is being used by Charter Communications to support its cloud-based UI strategy and by Net2TV, an online video provider, to power its Portico TV service on connected devices.
    “Moving the browser to the cloud eliminates the need to write UIs for every make and model of CE device,” said Ronald Brockman, CTO of ActiveVideo. “The resulting user experiences are less costly to develop, faster to develop and have far greater reach than more limited UIs that rely on device-based browsers and metadata in the cloud.”
    At IBC, ActiveVideo (Stand 3.B13) will be showing how CloudTV software platform decouples the user interface from device resources, enabling deployment of consistent, branded experience and applications – with or without a set-top box — on every device.
