    ICFLIX, FIC deal for MENA video streaming

    Parent Category: News | 20-02-2014

    Online media service ICFLIX is expanding its range of content to stream across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) through a new deal with Fox International Channels (FIC).

    TV dramas including The Walking Dead and The Listener will now be added to the subscription-based service, along with National Geographic Channel documentaries in English, Arabic and Farsi.
    Fox’s Baby TV will also be available in both English and Arabic to boost the children’s entertainment available on ICFLIX.
    The Netflix-like service, which has provided a variety of on-demand Arabic, English and Bollywood video content since 2012, is available to subscribers across MENA for US$7.99 a month. Bollywood and Jazwood (Arabic entertainment) content is also available to ICFLIX users globally.
    Subscribers can watch ICFLIX-delivered movies, TV series, cartoons, and documentaries on PCs, Macs, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and gaming consoles.

    OSN growth boosts KIPCO profits

    Rebecca Hawkes | 20-02-2014
    Middle East pay-TV operator OSN has performed well to propel its major investor, KIPCO, to record a 75% net profit for the fourth quarter of 2013-14.
    The Kuwaiti investment company said its net profit in the three months to 31 December 2013 was KD14 million (US$49.7 million), compared to KD8 million ($28.4 million) in the same period last year.
    The holding company recorded “very positive performance trends” in all its core sectors, which include banking, media, real estate and insurance, said Faisal Al Ayyar, vice chairman, KIPCO.
    “In particular, our broadcast company, OSN, continued to deliver strong improvement in revenue and profit, and subscriber numbers are now close to the one million mark,” he added.
    The 2013 results mark KIPCO’s 22nd consecutive year of profitability. Its board has recommended a cash dividend of 20% and a 5% stock dividend.
    KIPCO holds a 60.5% stake in the Dubai-based satellite TV network OSN, which was valued at about US$4.3 billion in November 2013 by brokerage Arqaam Capital.

    In 2012, OSN claimed a 30% increase in subscribers – reaching 734,000 households across the Middle East and North Africa, according to Arqaam. OSN’s revenues also grew 24% and its subscriber base grew 22% during the first nine months of 2013, according to the brokerage.
    KIPCO has made no further mention of the initial public offering (IPO) that it was considering for OSN last June.

    Netflix looks to French IPTV
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 24-02-2014
    US video streaming platform Netflix has approached several IPTV services to integrate into its box ahead of the SVOD service's expected French launch in September.
    According to a report from L'Express, Orange is seen as the favourite partner in the current negotiations.
    Free, SFR and Bouygues Telecom have also met the platform, but any agreement with SFR and Bouygues seems unlikely as both parent companies own premium content channels Canal+ and TF1.
    A deal with Orange would give Netflix access to more than ten million subscribers in France but also potentially to its subscribers base in Spain and Poland.

    MTG acquires 75% of pay-TV operator Trace

    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 25-02-2014
    Scandinavia's Modern Times Group (MTG) has signed an agreement to acquire 75% of Trace Partners SAS (Trace), the French-based youth media brand and global pay-TV channel operator, whose portfolio includes Trace Sports Stars, Trace and music TV channels Trace Urban, Trace Tropical and Trace Africa.
    Trace has distribution agreements with third party network operators in 160 countries worldwide, including all 55 countries in Africa. The four channels are localised in 16 different feeds and are available in up to 11 languages.
    The stake is being acquired from Citizen Capital, Entrepreneur Venture, NextStage, and company management, for a cash consideration that values 100% of the company at an enterprise value of €40 million.
    Trace management will retain the remaining 25% of the company.
    Olivier Laouchez, Trace co-founder, will continue as chairman and CEO of Trace, and the other members of the senior management team will also continue in their roles.
    Trace also runs a number of complementary branded entertainment businesses, including the annual Trace Music Awards, the Trace Stars' mobile song competition, which was recently launched in Africa; and Trace FM, a leading FM radio music station in the French Caribbean.
    Trace's recently launched mobile and digital assets are also developing fast with trace.tv online entertainment portal, smart personalised video music service My Trace and Trace Mobile.
    The company has generated 23% compound annual net sales growth over the five years to the end of 2013 and reported preliminary net sales of € 19.3 million for the full year 2013. Half of its revenues are generated in Africa and other emerging markets.
    Trace had 37 million paying subscribers as at the end of December 2013, up from 27 million at the end of 2012.
    The transaction is subject to regulatory approval by the French media authorities and MTG will consolidate Trace's results in the Group's accounts with effect from the closing of the transaction.
    "Trace fits perfectly with what we are doing both in Africa and, more broadly, with both our linear and digital operations, as well as our content production houses. This deal is another key milestone in our international expansion and provides us with footholds from which we can expand even more in Europe, South America, Asia and francophone countries around the world," commented Joseph Hundah, executive vice president of MTG's African operations.

    Programmatic advertising set to explode

    Michelle Clancy | 25-02-2014
    The programmatic marketing race is heating up, with advertiser categories such as arts and entertainment and telecoms becoming up to 60% more competitive, according to new research.
    The latest Advertising Intelligence Index from Turn found that competition comes at a price within digital channels, with effective cost-per-thousand impressions (eCPM) for social, display and video advertising increasing year-over-year for January 2014 compared with January 2013. The exception is mobile: despite increasing competition throughout the year, increased supply appears to have prevented higher prices.
    In addition, proof of the surge in data-driven marketing is borne out by the 28% increase in use of first- and third-party data by brands looking to get an edge as they compete for consumer attention.
    The top five global programmatic advertising verticals making the biggest moves to become more competitive from January 2013 to January 2014 were: arts, entertainment and hobbies (60% more competitive); travel (57% more competitive); electronics and computers (56% more competitive); financial services (52% more competitive); and telecoms (51% more competitive).
    The top five industry vertical categories making the biggest moves to become less competitive globally from January 2013 to January 2014 were: sports and recreation (121% less competitive); jewellery (55% less competitive); office products (46% less competitive); autos (41% less competitive); and real estate (29% less competitive).
    "Global advertisers are always looking for an edge to determine which channels, devices, and times are most effective to reach their most valuable audiences," said Paul Alfieri, vice president of marketing at Turn. "By applying economic models to real-time marketplaces, Turn provides marketers with key insights about how to compete for consumer attention and deliver greater advertising ROI."

TLC HD will further complement our existing lifestyle channels bringing even more premium entertainment choices for viewers,” said David Butorac, chief executive officer, OSN.
    James Gibbons, SVP & country manager, Discovery Networks CEEMEA, added: “There is clearly a gap in the market for a channel like TLC – the ultimate destination for the best in female-skewed entertaining and inspirational content – and its success globally is proof of how well the content works across cultures.”
