    Fries and Murdoch remain best of frenimies
    September 21, 2013 10.38 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    Mike FriesSkiing partners Mike Fries and James Murdoch came to the stage with a familiar message. They could learn from people like Netflix, but ultimately have a better product, along the way there would be a story of gradual growth.
    Missing from a panel session fronted by a high profile CNN anchor was any discussion on today’s proposals for 600 redundancies at Liberty Global acquisition Virgin Media.
    The UK cablenet has recently announced a deal to include Netflix on its TiVo platform in a transaction concluded before the purchase.
    “Our goal is to learn from companies like Netflix, what Netflix has taught us is not the content, but how that is presented to the consumer and we can incorporate all of that because we have the better content,” said Fries. “We see Netflix as a movie channel rather than a competing product, That might not be the same in every market where we may launch our own OTT services.
    “We are not good at moving the content from the TV to other devices, we’re not good at bringing contents to the TV, and were not good at the user interface so all our investment in Horizon and TiVo is aimed at that.”
    On another recent Virgin ad, Fries commented: “BT Sport is not innovation, it’s just raising the cost of what consumers pay. Bottom line.”
    James Murdoch argued there was room for many channels, many pay TV providers, and competition in video and voice. But said it was not a zero sum gain. He said it was difficult to manage the various levels of regulation within Europe when looking to expand.
    “It’s regulatory jeopardy when you have member states, then Europe, then someone else. The regulators are so differentiated that it can become so difficult.”
    The two discussed areas of mutual agreement, Fries saying the sale of the Chellomedia content business was necessary because it was not core, and openly admitting Murdoch could do content better.
    Sky and Virgin have had differences on the sale of rights, most notably when Sky basics were off the cablenet for some 18 months, and Sky Atlantic remains an absentee, not that there was any mention in the session.
    A charitable Murdoch, said football need not be held back for satellite alone. “People talk about it and that doesn’t happen because we have a natural incentive to sell to as many people as we can.”

    NanoTech live-streams Metallica Q&A
    Parent Category: News | 22-09-2013

    NanoTech has hosted the first of several live-streaming events as part of this year's 36th Annual Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF), an an on-stage interview and Q&A session with members of Metallica.
    The stream surrounded US public premiere of the motion picture Metallica Through the Never. The NanoFlix Network provided the stream to televisions, phones, tablets and computers.
    The movie premiere is a 3D experience highlighting live performance footage of Metallica's most memorable songs, combined with a narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band's musical portraiture.
    Moderated by Mark Fishkin, the California Film Institute executive director and MVFF founder, more than 330 attendees joined the celebrity Q&A program in-person as another 14,000 were captured by the online interviews through NanoTech's hi-definition live feed.
    NanoTech is the exclusive live-streaming partner of the MVFF this year and it will be providing more live-streaming events during the festival, taking place the 3-13 October.
    "Metallica and NanoTech are both based in the Bay Area, a location that has been become known as home to some the most innovative minds on the planet,” said Jeffrey Foley, NanoTech CEO. “Many of world's most influential technology and entertainment companies are born here. It was Metallica's decision to choose the Mill Valley Film Festival to showcase their film, with NanoTech, a start-up Bay Area company, providing the streaming coverage. That choice showcased the band's dedication to their own community and their support of local businesses."
    For the past two years, NanoTech has been providing streaming content for both on-demand and live events in HD. This autumn, the company plans to expand its offerings to include 4K UltraHD streaming products, including the Nuvola NP-1 streaming media player and NanoFlix UHD service.

    European enjoyed ‘great summer of TV’
    September 23, 2013 09.09 Europe/London By Robert Briel



    For every minute spent on YouTube, Europeans spend one hour watching television, according to ACT, the Association of Commercial Television in Europe.
    “Despite the fact that this summer did not feature a FIFA World Cup, a UEFA European Championships or Olympic Games, and despite the unusually warm summer weather in much of Europe, viewers remained gripped by TV shows – whether about sport, politics, royalty or entertainment…,” according to a prerss release by the association.
    Other remarkable frersult from the resaerch are:
    In Italy, the lack of a global sporting event was irrelevant as Italians watched 3.5% more television in the summer of 2013 than the previous year;
    26 million Germans watched the election debate between Chancellor Angela Merkel and her challenger Peer Steinbrück;
    The Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, was watched by a global audience of 360 million, 23.7m of them in Germany;
    Up to 13m viewers in France and 2.75m in the Netherlands watched coverage of the Tour de France. The Tour also broke viewing records in the UK;
    In other sporting highlights, over 14m people in the UK watched Andy Murray win the men’s singles at Wimbledon (and Marion Bartoli’s victory in the women’s singles created an audience record for its channel in France), while 2m Swedes watched the women’s European Championship football semi-final;
    Talent shows continued their decade-long run of success, with over 14m viewers for the final of Britain’s Got Talent and strong figures also recorded in the Netherlands, Belgium and elsewhere;
    Royal events also proved popular, with 6.08m Belgians watching the coronation of King Philippe I, 1.9m in Sweden for the marriage of Princess Madeleine, and – aggregated across four UK channels – 11.9 million watching coverage around the birth of Prince George;
    TV-related tweets amounted to average 6.5m per month in France in July and August.
    And the sector also believes that the impact of YouTube on television audiences has been overstated by some commentators. For the first time, industry bodies from around Europe have begun comparing the time spent watching television against that consuming various online media. The figures to date show that the impressive success of YouTube has not been at the expense of television. Across Europe, for every minute spent on YouTube, the average person spends an hour watching linear television.
    Commenting on this new comparison, which builds on data published by the UK trade marketing body Thinkbox in May, Tess Alps, Executive Chair at Thinkbox said: “Whenever a commentator glibly announces that YouTube has ‘displaced’ TV we should ask for their impartial evidence. In the UK, according to official sources, for every minute spent on YouTube, the average person spends nearly an hour watching linear TV.
    “We’re delighted to discover from co-operating with our sister organisations that this pattern is replicated across all the major European markets. This is not to denigrate YouTube in any way. It is complementary to TV and it is going to grow, but the assumption that time spent on YouTube will inevitably cannibalise linear TV time is flawed and not borne out by analysis of real consumers.”

    EC approves Kabel Deutschland – Vodafone deal
    September 23, 2013 08.53 Europe/London By Robert Briel



    Kabel DeutschlandThe European Commission has cleared the EUR7.7 billion acquisition of Kabel Deutschland by Vodafone.
    Earlier this week Vodafone said that it had secured 76.48% of KD shares, above the 75% minimum acceptance condition it had set.
    The Commission’s investigation confirmed that the activities of the merging parties were mainly complementary.
    While Kabel Deutschland primarily offers cable TV, fixed line telephony and Internet access services, Vodafone’s core business consists of mobile telephony services.
    To a certain extent, it also offers fixed line telephony and Internet access, as well as IPTV.
    The Commission found that in markets where the parties’ activities overlap, the increase in market share resulting from the proposed transaction is insignificant and will therefore not appreciably alter competition.
    As Vodafone’s demand of wholesale pay TV channels and its share in the retail supply of pay TV services are very limited, the Commission concluded that the transaction would not lead to anti-competitive effects.
    Further, the Commission found that the merged entity would not be in a position to leverage Kabel Deutschland’s market power in the wholesale market for TV signal transmission by cable into the IPTV market, where Vodafone has only limited activities.
    Moreover, the Commission found that Vodafone does not compete with Kabel Deutschland for the retail supply of signal transmission to multiple-dwelling-units and for single-dwelling-units, the increment to the already strong position of Kabel Deutschland would be insignificant, even under the narrowest possible market definition including the activities of both parties (the TV signal transmission via cable and IPTV in the network area of Kabel Deutschland).
    In these markets, Vodafone is not a close competitor of Kabel Deutschland, and a number of closer competitors, including Deutsche Telekom and regional cable operators, will remain in the market post transaction.
    Regarding a possible market for multiple play offerings combining fixed voice telephony, fixed line Internet access, mobile telephony and/or television, the Commission found that Kabel Deutschland is currently not a competitor to Vodafone, as it does not offer triple and quadruple play.
