    Yes to launch pay OTT
    JANUARY 6, 2014 09.01 EUROPE/LONDON BY CHRIS DZIADUL


    Yes digitalThe Israeli DTH platform yes has announced plans for what will be the country’s first pay OTT TV service.

    Known as yes GO, it will employ Tvinci’s OTT 2.0 solution and be available to yes subscribers from later this year.

    Yes GO will offer over 40 linear channels and thousands of hours of premium VOD and be accessible to yes subscribers on PCs, Macs, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

    Tvinci’s platform is designed for premium OTT TV services, with a comprehensive device management module to ensure compliance with Hollywood studio content protection requirements.

    The deployment for yes GO also includes a household management module that gives end users the ability to log in to the service as individual TV viewers.

    Tvinci provides yes GO with multi-language support including multi-audio and subtitles for VOD and linear in Hebrew and Russian. Tvinci’s front-end applications, which optimise yes GO for the different screens, meanwhile showcase the rich user experience.

    Commenting on the development, Itzak Elyakim, VP Engineering and CTO, yes Satellite, said: “Tvinci was the natural choice for us, when we took the decision to create an OTT TV service with an immersive user experience.

    “Yes GO is one of the most sophisticated OTT pay-TV solutions in Europe and we are proud to be working with the world’s leading OTT TV platform provider in our adventure beyond the set top box. Yes Satellite prides itself on leading the pay-TV market in Israel and beyond and we are confident that our combination of excellent content and Tvinci’s social and personal user experience is a potent mix.”

    Ron Eilon, CEO, yes Satellite, added: “The launch of yes GO places yes in the global technological frontier for multi-channel television. yes GO allows us an organisation to continue to pioneer premier viewing experiences, which are unsurpassed in Israel.

    “In Tvinci we have found the perfect technology partner to make our service social and personal and stand out from the crowd. This sophisticated and advanced deployment gives enormous added value to our customers who can see the best TV in the world – anywhere, anytime and on any device.”

    Ofer Shayo, co-founder and CEO, Tvinci, meanwhile said: “This high profile deployment in our home territory is an excellent achievement for us.

    “We are immensely proud of our technical acumen, as demonstrated with the multiple integration points in the yes GO deployment. In particular we are thrilled to work in conjunction with some of the pay-TV world’s leading brands, and this project for an innovator such as yes Satellite has been very rewarding for us.”

    Yes is owned and Bezeq and the Eurocom Group and claims over 580,000 subscribers, equivalent to 40% of Israel’s multichannel TV market. Tvinci was meanwhile formed in 2007 especially for the advent of OTT TV.

    It specialises in high-end solutions for the smart management of content and user experience and its platform has been deployed by – amongst others – Eutelsat, Chellomedia, MediaCorp, Yes to launch pay OTT

    Liberty Global closing in on Ziggo
    JANUARY 6, 2014 15.45 EUROPE/LONDON BY ROBERT BRIEL


    ZiggoHQ+logoLiberty Global is close to acquiring Dutch broadband provider Ziggo, according to Bloomberg, quoting anonymous sources.

    The two cable companies aim to announce a friendly deal as early as the middle of January, and are hammering out a final acquisition price and other terms, including job guarantees for people working at Ziggo.

    Outstanding issues include determining whether Ziggo CEO Rene Obermann, a former CEO of Deutsche Telekom, who started this month, will stay at the Dutch company if it is bought by Liberty, the people said. Liberty Global already owns about 30% of Ziggo, which it has gradually acquired during the past few months.

    Should Liberty Global take control of Ziggo, the deal will be subject to regulatory approval as the company already owns the country’s second largest cable company, UPC Nederland.

    Last December, Ziggo confirmed that it is currently in discussions with Liberty Global regarding a potential offer for the company by Liberty Global.

    At the time the company said in a statement “Further announcements will be made if and when relevant. There is no certainty that any agreement can be reached or that any offer will ultimately be made.”

    Digital TV homes to triple in Sub-Saharan Africa
    JANUARY 7, 2014 15.17 EUROPE/LONDON BY BROADBAND TV NEWS CORRESPONDENT



    Digital penetration will exceed half the TV households in Sub-Saharan Africa very soon, according to a new report from Digital TV Research. The Digital TV Sub-Saharan Africa Forecasts report estimates nearly every home will be converted by 2020.


    Analogue terrestrial switchover will account for much of this growth, with more than two-thirds of TV homes receiving DTT signals by 2020 – up from fewer than a fifth at end-2013. Around 28% of TV households will have satellite dishes (pay and FTA combined) in 2020.

    Festive iPlayer sees tablet overtake computer

    JANUARY 7, 2014 11.08 EUROPE/LONDON BY JULIAN CLOVER
    New devices unwrapped over Christmas saw Boxing Day tablet viewing overtake the computer for the first time in iPlayer history.
    Dan Taylor, head of the BBC iPlayer, BBC Future Media said 2013 was the year of the tablet. “Christmas Day TV is all about families gathering around the biggest screen of the house and most viewing on the day is via broadcast TV. BBC iPlayer has an important role as a complementary platform for BBC broadcast programmes, especially on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, when requests on iPlayer really start to peak and you have time to catch-up on the must-watch Christmas programmes.”
    However, it was New Year’s Day 2014 that became the iPlayer’s most successful day to date with close to 11 million requests for TV and radio programmes, even without data from Sky and Virgin Media that is made available at a later stage.
    941,000 downloaded the mobile and tablet apps over Christmas, adding to the 20 million app downloads iPlayer reached in October.

    Sony to launch cloud TV service in the US
    JANUARY 8, 2014 09.56 EUROPE/LONDON BY ROBERT BRIEL


    Kazuo HiraiSony plans to launch a cloud TV service in the US later this year, CEO Kazuo Hirai announced at CES in Las Vegas.

    “Sony’s new cloud-based live TV and video-on-demand service will redefine the ease and accessibility of live television, video on demand, and PVR viewing experiences,” Hirai said during his keynote.

    “Sony’s vision for the future of home entertainment is grounded in giving you the freedom and choice for what you watch when you want to watch it and what you want to watch it on.

    “The new cloud-based TV service in the US combines the live TV content people love most about cable with the dynamic experience they’ve come to expect from digital media services.

    “The service will give you the most popular live TV programmes, combined with a large library of video-on-demand content so people will have all of their favorite movies, TV shows, and sports programmes available through a single destination.

    “The service is distinguished by an intuitive and dynamic interface that gets to know you, as well as personalised channels that cater to your tastes. If a family member enters the room and picks up the controller, they can immediately access their own personalized menu. It also solves one of the greatest hurdles to live TV and digital media services: ease of content access.

    “Our offering will enable you to quickly search and discover across live and video-on-demand content using intuitive, dynamic filters without having to use multiple boxes. You’ll also be able to discover new channels by seeing what your friends are watching and recommending, or by your viewing history.

    “The service also provides the ability to watch and resume across various connected devices. So you can seamlessly switch viewing live TV or video-on-demand content from a PS4 in the living room to an iPad in another bedroom.”

    Hirai said Sony is already well-placed to enter the video market, with over 70 million connected devices in US homes. Based on the number of users streaming videos over its various services, the company would rank in the top 5 cable and satellite providers in the US. The PlayStation 3 also is the number-one device in the world for watching Netflix in the living room.

    Channel 4 pulls long form YouTube content
    JANUARY 8, 2014 10.41 EUROPE/LONDON BY JULIAN CLOVER


    channel-4-logo-hqChannel 4 has removed its long form programming from its 4oD service on YouTube in favour of its own apps.

    It’s retaining clips from previous shows and trailers of forthcoming programmes.

    “As you may have noticed, we’ve now removed all full episodes of Channel 4, E4 and More4 programmes from our 4oD channels on YouTube,” read a statement on the video sharing site.

    “As a not-for-profit broadcaster funded by advertising, we put our money back into the programmes themselves. To make the best of this investment, we’ve decided to focus on bringing online viewers of our full-length shows to our own 4oD apps – such as those on iOS, Android and channel4.com.

    “These apps also allow us to encourage more viewing by recommending programmes we think people will appreciate, and to provide viewers with additional services.”

    53% of Americans believe mobile devices will replace TVs
    JANUARY 8, 2014 10.08 EUROPE/LONDON BY ROBERT BRIEL


    vintage_tv-set53% of consumers believe that mobile devices like smartphones and tablets will replace television sets in the next eight years as the most common way to consume entertainment.

    Of that group, 31% believe that change will actually occur sooner, in the next one to five years, according to research commissioned by Irdeto.

    Released at CES 2014, the survey was conducted among 1,000 nationally representative US adults, ages 18+, between December 17 and December 23, 2013. It tackled important questions on entertainment viewing preferences, highlighting that traditional TV viewing is still king in America’s households.

    The majority of consumers (65%) still prefer to watch their favorite content live at the time of broadcast (also known as linear programming), whether it is on their television or streaming on a mobile device.

    60% of the Netflix generation (18-24 year olds) indicated they prefer to watch full series at once, without waiting a week or more in between new episodes. This underscores the binge-watching trend that kicked into high gear with the 2013 release of Netflix’s original series House of Cards.

    When it comes to broadband connected devices, 31% of people believe they will be using a smart TV to watch movies and television within five years, rather than popular CE devices like gaming consoles (6%), hybrid streaming devices like Roku (6%), tablets and mobile phones (5%) and dongles such as Google Chromecast (2%).

    Consumer demand for 4K TV sets is gaining momentum but still has a way to go, with only 18% “very interested” and 40% “somewhat interested” in purchasing a 4K/Ultra HD television. Sixteen percent (16%) of respondents revealed that they are not at all interested in the newer technology

    “In the past 10 years, we’ve seen mobile devices eclipse the consumer landline telephone market, and we’re seeing a similar fundamental shift in the television industry,” said Richard Frankland, VP, sales, Americas, Irdeto.

    “As the data indicates, we have reached a point where not only are devices as important to consumers as televisions, but a generational clash is also occurring between the demand for live programming and over the top services. The consumer electronics industry is working to get those consumers back through innovations like 4K, and the operators and content owners will follow suit by creating profitable offerings that meet consumer demands.”

    BAI abandons Irish commercial DTT
    JANUARY 8, 2014 10.56 EUROPE/LONDON BY JULIAN CLOVER


    Broadcasting Authority of IrelandThe Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) has dropped plans for the licensing of commercial DTT services after an analysis by Oliver & Ohlbaum Associates (O&O) suggested market conditions had not improved since the unsuccessful 2008 licensing process.

    O&O considered a number of potential business models for commercial DTT, while the BAI itself consulted with interested parties.

    The authority agreed with the report and has advised the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte TD that it will not now be proceeding with the process.

    Bob Collins, Chairperson of the BAI said “The contents of the report raise a number of policy implications for consideration by Government and also for the BAI, having regard to its statutory obligations and its enduring objectives in respect of diversity and plurality. In submitting copies of the review to the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, the BAI would now welcome the opportunity to discuss the findings of the report and the policy implications arising at an early date.”

    Previous plans to run a commercial service were abandoned in 2010 after the BAI failed to find an operator.

    At the time three consortium, Easy TV, a joint venture between Liberty Global and RTE; OneVision, led by the telco Eircom, and the Swedish Boxer had all entered the original ‘beauty contest’ in 2008.

    The Saorview DTT platform continues under the auspices of public broadcaster RTE.
