    Tablet viewing grows BBC iPlayer
    August 22, 2013 10.04 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    BBC iPlayerThe use of tablets continues to erode PC viewing, according to the latest stats released for the BBC iPlayer.
    Tablets now represent 21% of requests, compared to 10% just 12 months ago.
    A jump of six percentage points took place between November 2012 and January 2013, when the tablet use reached 18%, and the figure has been growing ever since.
    The casualty is PC viewing, which may also have been hit by slight increases in connected TV and TV platform viewing.
    Sport boosted live viewing on the BBC catch-up service in July, with the proportion of live requests to TV and radio both up month-on-month to 15% and 85% respectively
    A record 77 million radio requests were made in July, with requests from mobiles the highest they have ever been.
    Driving the increase was BBC Radio’s coverage of The Ashes cricket between England and Australia – with the live TV rights firmly in the hands of Sky Sports – who can also be expected to have found success for The Ashes on its Sky Go service.

    Brussels to look at Vodafone KDG takeover
    August 22, 2013 08.17 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    kdg-achtungThe Bundeskartellamt has asked the European Commission to rule on the merger between Vodafone and KDG.
    Andreas Mundt, president of the Bundeskartellamt, told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that they would not launch procedures for examining the merger between Kabel Deutschland and Vodafone Germany.
    The purchase price of Kabel Deutschland, including assumption of debt, adds up to around EUR11 billion euros bringing the merger within the competence of the EU.
    The acquisition of E-Plus by Telefonica, however, will be examined by the Kartellamt.

    Dutch digital TV penetration reaches 85%
    August 22, 2013 10.20 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent

    Modern-Family-blank-lo-resThe number of digital TV connections in the Netherlands grew by 1.0% during the second quarter of this year to 6.543 million on June 30.
    Almost 85% of all Dutch TV households now have a digital connection, according to Telecompaper’s quarterly Dutch Television Market report.
    This includes 3.68 million cable subscribers that also have an analogue TV connection. Telecompaper estimates the retail revenues for the consumer TV market totaled EUR 393 million in the second quarter, little changed compared to the first three months of the year.
    Cable still accounted for over half (56.2%) of digital TV subscribers, despite losing market share due to the growing adoption of IPTV services over DSL and FTTH networks. DSL was the second most common way to receive TV, followed by satellite and terrestrial, which are both losing market share.
    Ziggo was the largest TV provider at the end of the second quarter, both in the total TV market and the digital TV market. KPN, UPC and CanalDigitaal followed in the rankings.
    For 2013, Telecompaper expects a growth of 7.2% in digital TV connections to around 6.83 million driven by growth of IPTV via DSL and FTTH.
    Cable will also see digital TV growth but less than before. The whole TV market (including analogue-only connections) is expected to grow by 0.5% during this year.
    Copies of the full report can be bought from the Broadband TV News webshop.

    Digitürk sale moves closer
    August 22, 2013 10.36 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    DigiturkThe Savings Deposit Insurance Fund of Turkey (TMSF) is understood to be close to initiating a tender for the sale of Digitürk.
    According to local and agency reports, the TMSF and Çukurova Holding are in fact looking at several options, including a direct sale or a tender.
    The TMSF took control of Digitürk and several other assets belonging to the financially troubled Çukurova Holding back in May.
    Since then, it has sold two TV interests – Show TV and Sky 360 TV – to Ciner and a consortium composed of the Turkish companies Kolin, Limak and Cengiz, in the former instance for TRY402 million (€153 million).
    Digitürk has already attracted interest from a number of companies including Türk Telekom and D-smart.

    Dutch Pirate Bay blocking ineffective
    August 23, 2013 06.53 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    pirate bay logoThe blockade of The Pirate Bay has had little effect on the extent to which consumers download illegally, according to research at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and CenterData (Tilburg University).
    The researchers looked at the effect of closing access to The Pirate Bay by Dutch internet providers – since February and May 2012 court imposed – in two ways: through consumer surveys and by a technique called Monitoring BitTorrent.
    The surveys show that although some consumers indicate that they stopped downloading due to the blockade, there is also a smaller group that said they increased their illegal download activities. On balance, the number of people who downloading from illegal sources stayed the same between May and December 2012.
    The research using BitTorrent Monitoring provides a similar picture. The researchers see that after April 2012 there is a decrease in illegal traffic with the ISPs that were forced to block the site, but the decrease is small. All in all, it seems that the minority of the population that wants to download from illegal sources, can continue to do this pretty easily by bypassing the blockage or by using other providers of illegal content.
    “Only a few people are put off by the measure. It appears from other research that measures after six months often lose their effect, if that effect is already there. Supply and demand of illegal content find other places to meet. In line with this, we find that the expected reaction of consumers to the blockade is greater than their actual reaction after,” said Joost Poort, who was involved in the study.
    “The conclusion is that the effect of the blockade on downloading from illegal sources has been very limited”
    The research was collaboration between three research groups: the Institute for Information Law (IViR) and the System and Network Engineering Group of the University of Amsterdam, and CenterData (Tilburg University).
    The study also confirms earlier reports by Dutch ISP XS4All that the ban had little effect on illegal downloading traffic.

    TP Vision acts on warning Dutch privacy watchdog
    August 22, 2013 19.35 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Philips 42PFL6007T Angle-580-90TP Vision has made modifications on the way it stores user information of Philips smart TVs.
    The CBP, the Dutch privacy watchdog, has carried out an investigation and has concluded that TP Vision, the manufacturer of Philips smart TVs, gives viewers insufficient and incomplete information about the processing of their personal data via smart TVs.
    TP Vision collects and stores data on the online viewing habits, usage of apps and website visits. TP Vision uses the collected data to offer personalised viewing tips as well as targeted ads.
    However, due to lack of information by TP Vision to its users, viewers are often not aware of this, according to the CPB. TV viewers are also not able to stop the collection of their personal viewing data. According to CBP, the company is in breach of Dutch privacy law.
    “Most people do not even know their smart TV gathers information about their viewing habits,” said Wilbert Tomesen, board member of the CBP. “Smart TVs offer exciting new opportunities, but you have to tell your customers that you are collecting private information on a large scale to offer such services.”
    Following the investigation, the manufacturer has now made a number of modifications to better protect the privacy of the Philips smart TV users. The CBP is now looking if TP Vision’s privacy policy is within the Dutch law.
    According to the agency, TP Vision has sold between 1 and 1.2 million Philips smart TVs since 2009.
    A full copy of the report by the CBP can be downloaded from its website - the text is only available in Dutch and only offers the public version of the report.

    Eutelsat 25B/Es’hail 1 ready for August 29 launch
    August 23, 2013 07.09 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    The heavy-lift Ariane 5 for Arianespace’s August 29 mission is now complete at the Spaceport in French Guiana following integration of its second passenger – the Eutelsat 25B/Es’hail 1 satellite.
    Encapsulated in an ogive-shaped payload fairing, Eutelsat 25B/Es’hail 1 and the SYLDA dispenser system on which it is installed were lowered over GSAT-7 – which was mated with the Ariane 5 earlier this month – to finish launcher build-up at the Spaceport’s Final Assembly Building.
    With both satellites now installed, Ariane 5 is ready for the final pre-flight preparations – including the launch readiness review on August 27, followed by its rollout to the launch zone the next day, and the
    subsequent countdown to a 50-minute launch window that opens at 5:30 pm local time in French Guiana on August 29.
    Riding in the upper position of the payload “stack,” Eutelsat 25B/Es’hail 1 will be deployed first, at approximately 27 minutes after liftoff.
    Once in orbit, the spacecraft will be used by European telecommunications operator Eutelsat Communications and Qatar’s Es’hailSat Satellite Company to deliver television broadcasting, telecommunications and government services in the Ku-band range, while its Ka-band capability will open business opportunities for both operators. This high-power, multi-mission relay platform was built by Space Systems/Loral (SSL) and will be positioned at 25.5 deg. East, with a design life of 15 years or more.
    Following the release of Eutelsat 25B/Es’hail 1, GSAT-7 – the mission’s lower passenger – will be deployed at 34 minutes after liftoff, completing the delivery of this Ariane 5’s payloads into geostationary transfer orbit.
    The Indian satellite, developed by the nation’s Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) space agency, will provide relay capacity in UHF, S-band, C-band and Ku-band from an orbital position of 74 deg. East during
    its design life of seven years.
    Designated Ariane Flight VA215 in the company’s launcher family numbering system, this mission represents the 215th flight of an Ariane-series vehicle, as well as the fourth Ariane 5 liftoff in 2013.

    Chris Dziadul Reports: All change at CME
    August 23, 2013 07.43 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    The departure of Adrian Sarbu from CME marks the end of an era.
    It’s probably true to say that he has presided over the company during the most difficult period in its 20-year history.
    Being first and foremost a FTA broadcaster, it has had to contend with a big downturn in the TV ad market in Central and Eastern Europe. In its most recent set of results, published just a month ago, CME posted a net loss of $41.1 million for the second quarter, compared to a net income of $3.1 million for the same period last year.
    Worse still was its performance in the Czech Republic. Its entry point into the CEE region two decades ago and long regarded as a ‘cash cow’, the company’s operations there had revenues of $49.7 million in the second quarter – a huge fall on the $76.9 million posted a year earlier.
    CME has responded in a number of ways to what have now been several quarters of disappointing results. One of these, undertaken earlier this year, was to significantly increase the cost of commercial airtime in the markets it operates in – in double digit terms in the Czech Republic and single digits elsewhere. A risky move, it still has the full support of the board despite Sarbu’s departure.
    It’s important to note that Sarbu has resigned rather than been sacked by CME. He will also remain in his post until the end of the year in order to ensure a smooth transition.
    What is more, Sarbu will receive severance pay of $5.4 million and can expect to benefit from an investment of up to $3 million from CME in an audiovisual business he plans to set up.
    He also has a preferential right to buy CME’s assets in Romania up until 2015, should the company decide to sell up in the country.
    Although Sarbu will clearly still have links with CME following his departure, 2014 will mark the start of a new phase in the company’s development.
