    UPC declares Polish “digital revolution”
    August 23, 2013 08.48 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    centrum_upc_head_office_warsawPoland’s leading cable operator UPC Polska has from today (August 23) unscrambled 35 TV channels, three of them in HD, in what it describes as a “digital revolution”.
    Alongside this “revolution”, subscribers to minimum analogue packages are being given access to a large number of new channels and effectively a richer offer than that provided by DTT and other cable operators.
    As well as the 35 unscrambled channels, now available for no additional charge, subscribers will be offered Kino Polska on a promotional basis.
    UPC Polska also plans to introduce a “revolutionary” new digital package called Start TV in the next few weeks.
    It will replace the basic analogue package ‘Pakiet Minimalny’.

    RTL eyes Russian exit
    August 23, 2013 09.15 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    russia-flagThe number of strategic foreign investors in Russia’s TV industry may soon be reduced to just two, namely Modern Times Group (MTG) and Walt Disney Company.
    Referring to a statement in the company’s latest set of results, Kommersant reports that RTL is set to sell its 7.5% stake in the National Media Group (NMG), though a final decision is still pending.
    The reasons for doing so are that RTL’s general investment criteria are to be the leader or a strong number two in each market the company operates in.
    Russian shareholders in the NMG have meanwhile indicated that RTL would be exercising its option by withdrawing from the company and existing shareholders would acquire its stake.
    RTL acquired its 7.5% stake in NMG in exchange for the 30% it held in Ren TV two years ago. Sweden’s MTG has been present in Russia since 2002, while Walt Disney holds a 49% stake in the Russian version of Disney, launched in January 2012.

    25% of world will have satellite by 2018
    Michelle Clancy | 23-08-2013

    One in four homes will own a satellite dish by 2018, according to a new report from Digital TV Research.
    Covering 97 countries, the number of pay satellite TV (DBS or DTH) homes will reach 251 million by 2018, up from 178 million at end-2012 and 103 million at end-2008.
    From the 73 million pay satellite TV subscribers added between 2012 and 2018, India will provide 24.4 million, Brazil 9.2 million, Indonesia 6.8 million and Russia 5.9 million. However, the Global Satellite TV Forecasts report estimates that pay satellite TV subscriber totals will fall in 11 countries between 2012 and 2013 as subscribers convert to other platforms.
    India will lead the pay satellite TV sector with 61.1 million subscribers in 2018, followed by the US; India overtook the US in 2012 to take top slot. Brazil and Russia will take third and fourth places respectively.
    The US will remain DTH market leader by revenues generated, although its share of the total will fall from 43.5% in 2012 to 38.7% in 2018. Brazil will add the most DTH revenues ($3.5 billion) between 2012 and 2018 – nearly doubling its total in the process.
    However, satellite TV revenues will decline for 20 countries between 2012 and 2018. Much of this is due to greater competition forcing satellite TV platforms to offer cheaper packages which will lead to lower ARPUs. Furthermore, low-cost DTH packages are making a significant impact in several countries.
    Including free-to-air households, nearly 400 million homes will directly receive TV signals via satellite dishes by 2018, up by almost 100 million on the end-2012 figure. India will be responsible for adding 30 million over this period. A quarter of global TV households will have a satellite TV dish by 2018, up from 21% in 2012 and 14% in 2008.

    IBC 2013: Media Broadcast offers mobile IP contribution via satellite
    Jörn Krieger | 23-08-2013

    German technical service provider Media Broadcast will introduce a solution for IP-based distribution of video and audio live streams and the transmission of large files via satellite at the upcoming TV technology fair IBC 2013 in Amsterdam.
    NewsSpotter+, as the service is called, uses capacity on Eutelsat's KA-SAT satellite (9° East) which has been tailor-made for IP services.
    The nationwide reach of the satellite as well as low-weight, transportable Flyaway antennas enable mobile and quickly set up data transmissions from any location. The service offers a bandwidth of up to 10Mbps for uploads and downloads.
    The data is fed via satellite directly into Media Broadcast's broadband distribution circle Broadcast Next Generation Network through which it reaches the recipients. Therefore, no individual downlink site is required. Alternatively, the company offers the method of sending the data via the open Internet.
    NewsSpotter+ targets TV and radio channels for outside broadcasting purposes, administration authorities and other organisations.

    Delayers’ complicate pay-TV picture
    Joseph O'Halloran | 24-08-2013

    Late Millennials who move into their first non-college residence are equally likely to sign up immediately for cable, satellite, or telco-TV services as they are to delay or forgo new research from TDG has found.
    According to Late Millennials: A Study in Media Behaviour, these 18-24 year olds form a key TV demographic: more than half signing up for an MVPD video service the moment they move into their first non-college residence. Nearly two-fifths (38%) signed at some point before turning 24 and 11% decided to forgo these services altogether.
    Commented TDG president and principal analyst Michael Greeson: "By the time they turn 24, 89% of Late Millennials living on their own subscribe to a traditional pay-TV service, which is about the average penetration of incumbent pay-TV across all broadband households. This is good news for both services providers and networks. Whether they maintain that subscription over time, and for how long, is another question. A number of statistical indicators suggest younger consumers are leaning away from incumbent pay-TV as a default home TV choice, instead turning to alternate TV sources or viewing online video on non-television platforms.”
    The analyst also challenged the norm that MVPDs have banked on the fact that once these people land a decent job, marry, have children, and move up the career ladder they will sign up for TV. Indeed Greeson warned that this new demographic may change their attitude regarding the worth and necessity of traditional pay-TV services.
    "In the next five years, growing competition from virtual operators will test incumbents' longstanding position as the default home TV service. Greater choice means consumers will have little patience for on-going price increases that do not significantly expand service benefits," Greeson noted. One such price increase would be that demanded by CBS in its dispute with Time Warner Cable.

    Rugby TV rights – an upcoming scrum between Canal+ and beIN Sport?
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 24-08-2013

    Will the tactical game that the French rugby league (LNR) might play in the coming weeks lead to a new scrum between Canal+ and beIN Sport over the top 14 TV rights?
    Sport and media experts think LNR is about to dissolve its current contract with pay-TV channel Canal+ and launch a new call for bids, as it has the option to do so between September and December.
    Signed in 2011 and running until 2016, the current contract isn't satisfactory to the presidents of several clubs or the LNR president Paul Goze.
    Though mainly concentrating on football, Al-Jazeera's sport network beIN Sport wouldn't be averse to showing rugby and may therefore force Canal+ to financially outbid the channel in order to remain in the race.
    In 2011, the French channel had obtained the exclusive rights, including mobile and VOD, for €31.7 million a year.

    Risk, creativity and technology to drive TV's "third golden age"
    Editor | 24-08-2013

    Hollywood giant Kevin Spacey has implored broadcasters to embolden themselves and adopt technology such as over-the-top services to enter what could be a third golden age for television.
    Delivering the prestigious McTaggart Lecture at the Edinburgh Television Festival, Spacey said he believed that a revolution has already occurred in the TV industry with the likes of HBO, AMC and crucially Netflix — for whom the actor starred in the landmark House of Cards original programme that attracted multiple EMMY award nominations — driving a revolution in the way in which viewers consume television.
    "The audience wants control. They want freedom. If they want to binge – as they've been doing on House of Cards – then we should let them binge. We have learned the lesson that the music industry didn't learn: give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price, and they'll more likely pay for it,” Spacey said.
    However he warned that traditional broadcasters could be left trailing in the wake of those at the vanguard of this revolution to the industry's inherent risk aversion and inability to respond to change. "Our challenge now is to keep the flame of this revolutionary programming alive by continuing to seek out new talent, nurture it, encourage it, challenge it, give it home and the kind of autonomy … it deserves,” he added. Interestingly, Spacey believes that by providing compelling content at reasonable prices, the industry could fend off in the main the challenges presented by piracy.
