    41 Entertainment expands Disney footprint in Germany, UK, Denmark
    Editor | 17-11-2013

    PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures right holder 41 Entertainment (41e) has granted TV rights to Disney for its famous cartoon character in major European markets.
    Specifically, Disney Channel and Disney XD have secured the FREE and PAY TV rights for Germany, Austria and Switzerland for seasons I and II of the PAC-MAN series. At the same time, Disney XD has secured the PAY TV rights for the UK and Eire, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland for season I with an option for season II.
    Meanwhile Disney XD has acquired Season II of the property in the USA.
    “We are genuinely excited for this broadcast exposure and expansion of our relationship with Disney in Germany and we know that the new Disney Free to Air channel will quickly become the kids’ market leader,” commented Allen Bohbot, CEO of 41e states. “We are thrilled that Disney XD will join the PAC-MAN family in the UK and Eire as well as the Nordic countries and last but no means least, Disney XD has commissioned season II in the USA meaning that all noted Disney outlets now have access to seasons I and II.”

    KidsCo to stop transmissions
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 17-11-2013

    Shareholders NBCUniversal and Corus Entertainment have decided to discontinue their joint venture channel KidsCo by early 2014, citing the challenges of operating the service in a crowded market, and problems “growing” the net.
    The announcement comes just after NBCUniversal said it was buying out its partners in the US preschool network Sprout.
    KidsCo-operated programming block Syfy Kids is also affected by the closure and will cease broadcasting in the territories where it operates.
    "As one of many children's linear services available in the international market, growing the KidsCo business has been challenging," the companies said in a joint statement.
    The channel was formed in 2007 as a joint venture of Sparrowhawk Media, later acquired by NBCUniversal, DIC Entertainment, bought by Cookie Jar, and Corus Entertainment's Nelvana.
    In 2012, NBCUniversal and Corus bought out Cookie Jar's stake. Since the beginning of this year, the pay-TV channel reached about 15 million subscribers in 90 countries across Western Europe, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and Australia, but fell in UK and US markets.

    Streaming goes prime time with connected TV prime destination
    Parent Category: News | 17-11-2013

    New research from Crackle in association with Frank N Magid Associates has revealed that viewers are streaming video on a connected device at a record pace during prime time hours.
    The survey by the Sony Pictures Television unit — which offers Hollywood movies, TV shows and original series and films for 34 million viewers across 22 countries — found ultimately that control is increasingly in the hands of the viewer as connected TV is taking over the reins when it comes to streaming films or television shows. It added that streaming devices and services are giving people access to what they want, when they want. More than half of adults surveyed prefer connected TV over other streaming devices in the home — including PCs, tablet and mobile phone.
    Streaming, the survey found, is now the second consideration in the evening after watching what’s currently airing on TV — even before stored programming on DVR devices. This says Crackle demonstrates a tremendous shift in viewership behaviour and an incredible desire for real-time accessibility to programming. Virtually all (96%) of adults now have the ability to stream video to their television and 54% stream to their connected TV, which in the survey comprises over-the-top (OTT) devices, smart TVs and gaming consoles. This compares with 44% on their computer, 19% on their tablet and 15% on their mobile phone. Half of those likely to engage in cord-cutting, plan to replace their cable or satellite TV service with connected TV.
    Analysing the trends revealed, Crackle believes that consumers now have more options to create their own curated programming experience in today’s ‘new living room’.
    “Viewing habits are quickly evolving and connected TV is going mainstream,” said executive vice president of digital networks at Sony Pictures Television and GM of Crackle, Eric Berger. “This shifting landscape reinforces that there is a tremendous opportunity here for advertisers to engage consumers and really drive brand awareness by targeting the increasingly influential connected TV medium.”

    ONO offers TiVo-based TV everywhere
    Juan Fernández Gonzalez | 18-11-2013

    ONO is finalising its TiVo-based TV everywhere service which on launch will be one of the largest offers in Spain's pay-TV sector.
    With its new service, ONO will be about to start competing with Telefónica in the TV everywhere and multi-device market, which is still quite underdeveloped in Spain. According to Neeo, which is closely related to the cable company, the new service will come at no extra cost for ONO's TV subscribers, and at a cost of €6 for customers who only have an Internet and telephone package.
    The whole schedule will be available in SD, although HD programming will gradually be increased in TiVo's new service.
    The platform's app will be launched both for iOS and Android, and intends to cover a wide range of devices. The idea is to operate as an online TV platform with an integrated second-screen interface for social TV. In addition, a video-on-demand (VOD) service will be available.
    The list of channels for the TV everywhere platform, published by Neeo, includes TNT, Fox, AXN, Cosmo, Nickelodeon, Discovery and National Geographic, among others, in addition to the regular DTT free-to-air offer.

    Argentina's Clyfer to launch cooperative pay-TV in 2014
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 18-11-2013

    Argentina's Clyfer, the local power co-operative in Buenos Aires, will launch a pay-TV service through its fibre network in 2014.
    The company, which got its licence a month ago, has already completed the channel's schedule and is now waiting for permission from the federal communication authority.
    Its investment plan is not yet finalised, as the budget is not the same for a local co-operative as it is for a private company, but the infrastructure project is underway and Clyfer is said to have various financial options.
    The co-operative will start buying equipment with its own resources and extend the network with its initial income. The technology – decoders or set-top boxes (STBs) – will be provided by Colsecor, a wholesaler based in Cordoba.
    Clyfer is also considering finding private capital to realise the whole investment amount required.
    The co-op is about to build a studio and central offices, from which local cooperatives could produce and broadcast their own programming.
    The project will have a basic package of 80 different channels for a price that is expected to be lower than its private competitors. The technology will initially be analogue, as the digital migration will start once the cable network is operating.
    Local cable co-operatives are growing in Latin America as a low cost alternative to the large TV operators.

    Chile approves DTT law, ignoring FIFA complaints
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 18-11-2013

    Chile's Government has finally presented the changes it wants to make to the recently approved DTT law, meaning that the regulation will go back to Parliament, where it has already been debated upon for over four years.
    However, no changes will be made to the part of the law regarding the broadcasting rights for Spain's national football team's matches, which FIFA and Conmebol had complained about.
    According to the newspaper El Mercurio, the Government has presented a document in which it applies for some minor changes and more concrete explanations of the law. The need for a plural TV, the idea of advertising and the remit of the national TV authority are included, but nothing about football rights.
    Chile's DTT law states that the national team's matches have to be broadcast free-to-air, even though a pay-TV channel wants to broadcast them. About a week after the law was approved, the football associations sent a letter to the Government, explaining that the national team may be fined and even banned from international competitions if FIFA and Conmebol don't retain the broadcasting rights.
    Chile has been debating the DTT law for almost five years, one of the longest processes in Latin America for TV legislation. The football paragraph was redacted and apparently accepted in 2011, and now won't be changed.

    Network Broadcast targets Latin American OTT expansion
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 18-11-2013

    Network Broadcast plans to consolidate its over-the-top (OTT) services in Latin America during 2014, through which it intends to keep growing and face the region's upcoming sports events.
    The updating of Latin America's TV technology has been driving profits for the end-to-end solutions company.
    In addition to a general OTT consolidation in the region, Network Broadcast plans to make an extra effort to implement OTT in Bolivia. Moreover, its business plan for 2014 looks to an Argentinian deal with local producers, to which the company intends to provide technological solutions for the country's new TV platforms.
    During 2013, "all the operators have carried an important upgrading effort, which has been supported by great investment in equipment and development, mostly to face the World Cup next summer," explained Alejandro Cubino, Network Broadcast's president. This sort of technological revolution has helped the company double its operations in 2013, a trend which it aims to duplicate next year.
    "During the whole year a strong tendency to HD migration has been noted," added Fernando Galvarino, business development engineer at the company. "We have sold nearly 40% more HD equipment compared to 2012," he added.

    UPC Cablecom to connect Orange 4G
    November 19, 2013 09.30 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    UPC Cablecom’s Business division is to connect Orange Communications SA to its Carrier Ethernet platform.
    Over the next two years, the Swiss operator plans will connect more than 1,000 4G masts with top bandwidths of between 1 and 10 Gbps.
    Customers of UPC’s mobile offering, which runs an MVNO through Orange in Switzerland, will also benefit from the additional capacity.
    It is the largest contract to date for UPC Cablecom
    Johan Hall, Chief Technology Officer at Orange, says of the awarding of the contract to
    UPC Cablecom: “We wanted a real Layer 2 Ethernet service with an end-to-end quality guarantee and monitoring of our national sites including VLAN flexibility. We are pleased to have found the best solution for this in UPC Cablecom business.”
    In the third quarter of this year, UPC Cablecom became the first provider in Switzerland to launch new-generation Ethernet services across the whole of the country.
    UPC Cablecom will therefore take over the backhaul for more than 1,000 4G masts over the next two years. Each mast transmits data via cables with a capacity of between 1 and 10 Gbit/s. The first 70 masts are set to be connected this year.
