    Pay-TV penetration grows in Latin America, advertising doesn't keep pace
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 28-09-2013

    Pay-TV penetration is growing unstoppably in Latin America, says the advertising council LAMAC in its latest report, but the advertising sector isn't keeping pace and is still putting most of its financial efforts in free-to-air TV.
    Over half of Latin Americans have access to at least one pay-TV platform, which represents a massive growth over the past years. While in 2008, 36.3% of the region's inhabitants could receive pay-TV, now 56.3% can. On average, Latin Americans consume more than three hours of pay-TV during the week and 3.5 at weekends. But, according to LAMAC, only 10% of advertising investment targets the pay-TV audience.
    The specific data by country shows the same picture. In Chile nearly 70% of the population has access to a pay-TV platform, standing at almost 100% within some economic segments. In addition, pay-TV's share is 58.3% during weekends, when the Chileans consume 3.5 hours of pay-TV.
    Colombia and Argentina have over 80% penetration and the pay-TV platforms capture nearly 50% of the audience. Venezuela's pay-TV share is 60% and during the weekends over four hours of cable TV are watched.
    And, according to LAMAC, in all these countries, although there are some differences, over 85% of advertising campaigns target free-to-air channels. The specifics of the audience segments and the huge effort needed to reach a large portion of viewers may be behind this behaviour.

    We Love Tamara tops Spain's social TV and VOD
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 28-09-2013

    Cosmopolitan TV's reality show We Love Tamara may not have reached predicted viewing figures, but it has been a hit with social media users and video-on-demand (VOD) audiences.
    The first two episodes of the programme, which had generated great excitement due to its innovative format for Spanish TV, was the most commented upon pay-TV programme on social media. According to Tuitele, We Love Tamara topped the figures far above its competitors. It has also been the second most commented upon show in Cosmopolitan's history and the second episode was a trending topic.
    The VOD platform Yomvi, through which Cosmopolitan offers its programming, has also noticed the popularity of the show. According to Rentrak, it was the seventh most watched programme on the Canal+ platform and the fifth most downloaded programme for the iPad. The measurement company stated that nearly 90% of the show's consumption was away from traditional TV.
    Cosmopolitan's website traffic has also increased. Since the show started, more than three times the usual amount of users have visited the site.
    We Love Tamara is broadcast by Cosmopolitan through all Spanish pay-TV platforms, including ONO, Movistar TV, Euskaltel and Orange TV, with a potential audience of over three million. However, the first episode received only 15,000 traditional viewers (0.09% share).

    Rebecca Hawkes | 29-09-2013

    Man Jit Singh, chief executive of Multi Screen Media, has been re-elected president of the Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) for the year 2013-14.

    “Substantial challenges continue in the current year. We need to build on the success of content regulation, continue the process of digitisation and work collaboratively with the broader industry."

    Sudan closes Khartoum offices of Al Arabiya, Sky News Arabia
    Rebecca Hawkes | 29-09-2013

    The Sudanese authorities have shut down the Khartoum operations of pan-Arab television news channels Al-Arabiya and Sky News Arabia, according to the UAE-based broadcasters.
    The closures come as Sudan faces the largest demonstrations seen during President Omar al-Bashir's 24-year rule. Stemmed by a fuel price hike, the unrest has led to reports of the death at the hands of security forces of more than 50 people – although official figures put this at 29.
    Tarek al-Tijani, Sky News correspondent in Khartoum, told AFP that government officials closed his office on 27 September.
    “Security officers came and informed us that the authorities had decided to freeze our activities. They seized equipment and told us we can no longer carry out journalistic activities,” said al-Tijani.
    Al Arabiya’s closure came hours after its Khartoum correspondent was summoned by government officials, the station said.
    A media blackout is now being reported in Sudan, with journalists saying the daily newspapers Al-Sudani and Al-Majhar al-Siassi were seized at the printing press on Friday (27 September). A third daily, Al-Watan was reportedly ordered not to go to print after covering the protests in its Thursday edition.

    Zimbabwe’s 1st TV goes off air
    Rebecca Hawkes | 29-09-2013

    The privately owned channel 1st TV, which broadcasts from South Africa into Zimbabwe via satellite and the internet, has suspended operations due to a lack of funds.
    The independent TV station, which launched ahead of Zimbabwe’s elections in July, promised to provide an alternative voice to the dominant and state controlled Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC).
    Responding to claims the network was backed by western governments, Andrew Chadwick, former communications director for Morgan Tsvangirai, told the BBC most of 1st TV’s funding comes from private entities.
    “We've also received support from groups supporting human rights, freedom and democracy,” Chadwick added in July – as President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu (PF) party vowed to “cripple” 1st TV.
    In a statement on 27 September, the station said: “1st TV launched on the promise of one month’s financial support. We managed to extend that to two months. But as of now, we have to go off air while we raise more resources and source more programmes.
    “Our pledge to you, is that when we return it will be on a permanent basis and it will be with improved entertainment programming, more soaps, movies and dramas as well improved education, information and news programmes,” the station added.

    Netflix raises the bar on OTT quality
    Editor | 29-09-2013

    Rounding off a rather good week Netflix is to give all of its members access to HD programing regardless of their Internet service provider (ISP).
    The move comes only days after the over the top (OTT) leader had signed up a distribution deal with a second leading European cable company, Sweden’s Com Hem, following a similar arrangement with Virgin Media in the UK. Netflix will be available as an app in Com Hem's TiVo service from December 2013.
    With access over cable networks removing any network quality issues for the equation, Netflix is turning to improve QoE over its traditional access platforms. Netflix will now offer content in a higher bit rate stream, Super HD, applying less compression to the 1080p image and meaning that the ability to receive content in such quality will depend on broadband quality and performance. The company stresses that members who subscribe to an ISP with a direct Netflix connection will get the best experience. However the HD and Super HD streams are only available on certain titles.
    Outlining why corporate communications director Joris Evers said: “We initially rolled out Super HD in January only through ISPs with a direct connection to Netflix. Based on the performance data we’ve seen, and in response to member requests, we are now expanding availability to give all our members the ability to enjoy Netflix in the best possible quality.”
    Netflix added that it would continue to encourage ISPs to adopt Netflix Open Connect, its optimised video content delivery network available free to ISPs and said to be designed to deliver the best possible Netflix experience by storing content as close as possible to members’ homes.

    Ofcom rules Playboy TV UK controlled from Canada
    September 30, 2013 11.11 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    Ofcom has upheld an appeal by Playboy TV UK that it was no longer the operator of online video on-demand services Playboy TV and Demand Adult.
    In a blow to co-regulator ATVOD, the decision turned on whether Playboy TV UK / Benelux Ltd still exercised “general control” over the selection and organisation of the programmes comprising the relevant video on demand services.
    The operator produced evidence that it was now being run by a Canadian company, Playboy Plus Entertainment, meaning that it could continue to offer hard-core internet porn to UK consumers beyond the reach of British regulation.
    Commenting on the decision, ATVOD Chief Executive Pete Johnson said: “This is a complex area and the appeal system is a vital part of the process, giving service providers, in particular, greater clarity over issues such as where regulatory responsibility lies when two or more parties are involved. In this case, it is unfortunate that ATVOD was not provided with all relevant information at the appropriate time – doing so ensures that unnecessary regulatory costs are avoided.”
    ATVOD had determined that as at September 14, 2012 it remained the provider of the two channels. ATVOD had found Playboy TV UK / Benelux Ltd to be in breach of ATVOD rules that require UK porn-on-demand websites to keep hardcore porn behind effective access controls which ensure that under 18s cannot normally see it. The UK company was later fined £100,000 in relation to those breaches.
    The Ofcom’s appeal decisions note that “a limited number of individuals within the UK business continue actively to be involved in the provision of the service[s]” but accept that “there was a genuine reallocation of responsibility within the corporate group.”

    Exset and Mstar design STBs for emerging markets
    September 30, 2013 11.06 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Exset has announced a close cooperation with MStar to create a semiconductor solution and software platform suited to Exset’s Digital Monetization ecosystem.
    This strategic alliance has seen the combining of MStar’s silicon, hardware conditional access and software stack to create a set-top box architecture and reference design in synergy with Exset’s Digital Monetization System (DMS).
    In a statement, the companies said: “DMS is Exset’s unique business and technology model that makes pay-TV self-financing without depending exclusively on subscriber fees for revenue. DMS bridges the gap between technology supply and value-add service creation, facilitating digital television platforms that can be monetised in emerging markets where previously virtually impossible. This allows populations to benefit from new information and entertainment services while operators and governments, when partnering with Exset, monetise digital switchover and assist in bringing about social transformation.”
    Scot Cuthbertson, Technical Director, MStar Europe, said, “The close cooperation between broadcast technology vendor Exset and MStar’s set-top box R&D team enabled us to design a truly optimised platform. The DMS service combined with hardware conditional access provides an interactive pay-TV solution at a new cost/performance tier in the market. Exset was able to capitalise on MStar’s end-to-end silicon, software and support resources to deliver a highly efficient solution.”
    The set-top box reference design and software stack will be supplied to relevant companies for set-top box customisation and manufacture.
    Alex Borland, CEO, Exset, said, “The set-top box reference design is essential to the deployment of DMS and we’re really pleased to be partnering with MStar because of the company’s acknowledged expertise in the field. Together we have been able to create a fantastic user experience at a price point that will make people really sit up and listen.”
    Exset is a broadcast technology and solutions company founded in 2011. It is based in The Netherlands with offices in the UK, Estonia and India.
