    TV1.EU shows legal remote/cloud PVR
    September 13, 2013 12.19 Europe/London By Donald Koeleman


    “In the area of cloud computing, who wants a hard disk recorder with recording capacity limited to only two progammes?
    “With Shift.TV, customers will be able to manage up to 50 recorded channels in parallel. Plus, webspace can be expanded at any time and on any device directly by the users himself. This is the future of media consumption in times of mobile Internet,” according to Michael Westphal, CEO of TV1.EU, a German company that for the last few years has been in courts to establish its cload-based,online, remote recording service.
    Making it currently the ‘only legal online TV-recorder in Germany’,time for TV1.EU to bring its hift.TV service and associated streaming and transcoding services to IBC for the first time.
    The cloud-based recorder enables its customers to have a single show or recurring events within the German television program recorded and downloaded as well as retrieved as stream at any time.
    Shift.TV is a webbased service delivered by TV1.EU`s content delivery network and can be used from any PC, notebook, hybrid TV or iPhone/iPad App and soon smart TVs.
    The main focus for TV1.EU is to enable TV-stations and content-provider to deliver their material to a growingly fragmented target group and to prepare for a rising demond for video-on-demand.

    This project will take form at the end of the year with a major European operator who will offer such functionalities as the control of set-top boxes, viewing of TV programmes on a second screen, or the transcoding of available videos into over-the-top (OTT) by a set-top box.
    The new HbbTV application suite includes a portal and VOD applications, catch-up TV, an electronic programme guide, radio/audio, weather, zapping banner, traffic news, horoscopes and news.
    It is offered under licence to all television channels and digital operators (satellite, cable, IPTV, DTT).

    Mexican pay-TV gets one million new subscribers
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 14-09-2013

    Mexican pay-TV subscriptions increased 16.9% in Q2 compared to 2012, and nearly one million people are now paying for a cable, IPTV or satellite platform, according to the latest figures from COFETEL as reported by the Latin American Multichannel Advertising Council (Lamac).
    Similar figures haven't been reported in other Latin American countries, not even Brazil which has seen high pay-TV growth recently. Indeed, the increase in pay-TV customers is slowing down, and the figures were stable in Latin America in the first half of the year. According to Lamac, no other media has grown like Mexico's pay-TV, the figure of which is actually triple of that shown in the Q1 report.
    Considering that every subscription gives pay-TV access to 3.5 people, Lamac estimates that over three million Mexicans have decided to change their TV habits. The pay-TV penetration rate in Mexico is 48.68%, and if it keeps growing at the same pace, over half of the country's population may be paying for TV by the end of the year.
    "We are pleased about breaking such a record in Latin America, especially because the growth has been mostly capitalised by Lamac's members, which has been reflected in an average ratings growth of 19%," said Federico Baumgartner, Mexico manager at Lamac. He added that pay-TV is essential for advertising and brand investment.

    Dish, Axtel to broadcast FTA channels Televisa, TV Azteca
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 14-09-2013

    Mexican pay-TV operator Dish is to start broadcasting the free-to-air (FTA) channels Televisa and TV Azteca due to recent reforms in telecoms regulations.
    The satellite company was refusing to pay for broadcasting the free-to-air channels of both groups, offering them in a special package at an extra cost.
    Both audiovisual companies have over 80% of the free-to-air market in Mexico, but their presence on the pay-TV platforms was limited. Now, their channels will be broadcast on Dish at no extra cost for viewers. In addition, the signals will be offered on Axtel, the pay-TV operator which covers the capital Mexico DF, Monterrey, Guadalajara, San Luis Potosí, Querétaro, Puebla, Aguascalientes and León.
    The new telecom rules "promote competition and bring the opportunity of reaching new and more clients, offering them the content they are used to watching but with better quality and an interactive platform," said to Jenaro Martínez, director, Axtel TV.
    The solution offered by Mexico's telecoms authority follows the 'must carry' principle and means that free-to-air channels are forced to offer their signals without cost and that pay-TV operators are obliged to broadcast them.

    IBC 2013: Sky Italy's VP goes to India with Tata Sky
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 14-09-2013

    Sky Italy has announced that Paul Agostinelli, currently vice president for channel partners, will take up the position as head of programming and business for Tata Sky in India, in direct communication with the company's CEO Harit Nagpal.
    The Indian company is a leader in its market, with over seven million customers, and was created after the joint venture between Tata Group and Star India, owned by 21st Century Fox.
    Agostinelli's new position will also bring some changes to the structure of Sky Italy. Luca Revelli will be now responsible for channel partners, maintaining his current position as head of digital activities as well.
    Agostinelli led Sky Italy from linear programming to the launch of video-on-demand services. From today, Giovanni Uboldi will be in charge of non-linear programming with direct responsibility for pay-per-view and VOD.
    The relevance of the Indian market for Sky gives additional importance to the position of Agostinelli. "This shows that in Italy we are able to provide talent capable of filling the most coveted and prestigious roles in other markets," said Andrea Zappa, CEO of Sky Italy. "And this also shows the value created by a global group membership as 21st Century Fox."
    Paolo Agostinelli arrived at Sky Italy in 2008, making a successful career in pay-TV, enabling one of the most important steps in Sky Italy's recent history: the launch of the VOD platform.

    IBC 2013: Sky Italy, TVN demonstrate UltraHD content delivery
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 14-09-2013

    Italian DTH satellite pay-TV provider Sky Italy is planning a trial demonstration of UltraHD content delivery using the high efficiency video coding (HEVC) compression capabilities of Thomson Video Networks' ViBE VS7000 encoding/transcoding platform.
    Sky Italy chose the ViBE VS7000 to create a real-world environment for end-to-end UltraHD delivery, from content acquisition and transcoding in HEVC to delivery and display on 4K television sets.
    "HEVC is the wave of the future for UltraHD and 4K content delivery, but until very recently this type of demonstration was not possible because there were no viable solutions for creating a real-world workflow in an actual production environment," Massimo Bertolotti, head of engineering and innovation, Sky Italy commented in a release.
    Thomson Video Networks' ViBE VS7000 video system, one of the first implementations of the emerging HEVC compression standard, is designed to lower operators' OPEX for delivery of a wide range of convergent TV services including Web TV and OTT, as well as traditional IPTV and cable applications.
    The ViBE VS7000 will provide 4K file transcoding in HEVC, and Thomson Video Networks' Sapphire stream server will play out the UltraHD HEVC-encoded content for display on Ultra HDTV sets.

    SES claims full rights at 28 East
    September 16, 2013 09.57 Europe/London By Julian Clover



    Astra DINO RoomSES says it has been granted right to use the German Ku-band frequencies at 28.5 degrees East from October 4, 2013. Rights to the frequencies are also claimed by Eutelsat, which initiated arbitration with The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
    The frequencies are used to broadcast to the UK, largely for the BSkyB and Freesat platforms.
    In a 2005 agreement with Media Broadcast, the successor to T-Systems Business Services, frequencies were issued by the Bundesnetzagentur, the German regulator, on the basis of German filings that have priority under the rules of the International Telecommunication Union.
    SES says the agreement for 500 MHz of bandwidth at this orbital position adjacent to SES’s 28.2 degrees East in the frequency bands 11.45 – 11.70 GHz and 12.50 – 12.75 GHz in downlink and 14.00-14.50 GHz in uplink. The bands would be covered by the delayed Astra 2E and Astra 2G, along with the already launched Astra 2G.
    Eutelsat commenced the proceedings in October 2012 on the basis that SES could not use the frequency band without breaching a 1999 intersystem coordination agreement between Eutelsat and SES.
    In a judgment released on September 4, 2013, the Tribunal found the 1999 agreement did not bar SES from using the relevant frequency bands if and when Eutelsat no longer holds the regulatory right to operate in those bands under the German filing.
    However, it did not give a date as to when those rights would end as it did not have the authority to rule on any contractual arrangement between Eutelsat and DTAG or MB.
    In a judgment by the Regional Court in Bonn on August 30, requested by Media Broadcast, Eutelsat was ruled to be prohibited to use the frequencies beyond October 4, 2013.
    Eutelsat says it will now appeal against the decision, underlining that it does not intend to create any harmful interference.
    The Tribunal now moves into a second phase, among them whether SES was entitled to sign an agreement in 2005 with Media Broadcast without breaching its obligations under the ICA. SES disputes those claims.
