    Yahoo adds to TV slate

    April 29, 2014 09.48 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    Yahoo!Yahoo has confirmed its entrance into TV production with the announcement of two original comedy series. Both will launch through its video portal Yahoo Screen next year and will be available both on the PC desktop and through apps for Apple TV and Roku.

    Like similar forays from Netflix and Amazon, Yahoo has turned to existing talent to develop the shows. Other Space, set in the early 22nd Century where man has tired of boldly going, gas been developed by Paul Feig, who has previously worked on Freaks and Geeks, Bridesmaids and The Office.

    Sin City Saints executive producer Mike Tollin was on One Tree Hill, Smallville, and Varsity Blues, while director Bryan Gordon is known from The Office.

    “Since launching our comedy lineup seven months ago, we’ve seen 500 million streams on Yahoo Screen in the US alone. We are continuing to build our library with universally loved comedy such as Saturday Night Live and Comedy Central,” said Yahoo chief marketing officer Kathy Savitt in a statement.

    Yahoo has also announced a partnership with promoter LiveNation with plans to stream one concert per day for the next few years.

    But the offering at the moment remains US centric and while it might attract the kind of cult following seen in the UK by Breaking Bad, a weather eye should be kept on local web offerings such as the BBC’s own premieres on the iPlayer.

    Richard Desmond to sell Channel 5 to Viacom

    May 1, 2014 08.05 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Channel 5UK media entrepreneur Richard Desmond will announce the sale of Channel 5 to the US broadcaster Viacom for £450 million (€546 million) later today.

    US media group Viacom, which owns channels including MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central, is expected to announce the deal on Thursday when it reports its latest financial results, according to The Guardian.

    Bloomberg also reports that Viacom has agreed to buy Channel 5, quoting a person with knowledge of the situation who asked not to be named because the deal hasn’t been announced.

    Originally, Desmond was looking to sell the channel for as much as £700 million. He turned down a reported joint bid from Discovery and BSkyB for £350 million. Desmond bought Channel 5 from RTL Group in 2010 for £103.5 million.

    Nagra provides multiscreen solution for Yomvi

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 30-04-2014


    Kudelski Group's Nagra has announced that its multiscreen solution Nagra MediaLive is enabling over one million devices to access Yomvi, a milestone which marks a 182% growth in usage of the Spanish over-the-top (OTT) service in the past year.

    The Canal+ service streams premium live and on-demand content over the Internet to hybrid set-top boxes, PCs, game consoles, connected TVs, as well tablets and smartphones, and is among Spain's most used OTT and video-on-demand (VOD) platforms.

    "We are pleased to witness the fast growing usage of the Yomvi service by our subscribers since its launch in 2011," said Guillermo Mercader, general manager of Canal+ Yomvi. "Our vision that a successful multiscreen TV offering must provide access to our best channels and programmes is confirmed by the growth we experienced over the last year. It also brings us closer to our goal of delivering our service to our entire subscriber base."

    "The success of the Yomvi multiscreen service is a clear indication that consumers appreciate the value and convenience of multiscreen TV," said Jean-Michel Puiatti, senior VP of Nagra's multiscreen unit. "It also shows that bringing premium, broadcast quality, live and on-demand content to multiple devices requires a powerful TV-centric end-to-end solution that meets content owner security requirements, reaches a broad range of devices and scales to support a large number of users – and this is what MediaLive provides."

    The platform is secured by Nagra MediaAccess content protection technologies, key components of the NAGRA MediaLive solution, ensuring the delivery of premium content to every screen.

    Atresmedia saves Xplora through online platform

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 30-04-2014


    Thought of as too popular to be lost, the Xplora channel will be moved online following Atresmedia's decision to save it from Spain's DTT mass switch-off and keep broadcasting it through Atresplayer.

    From next week, Atresmedia will take Xplora, laSexta 3 and Nitro off traditional TV screens. But the media company believes that Xplora warrants a slot away from free-to-air TV and will try to keep all its shows on air through its Web platform.

    Via Atresplayer, all the content is available on-demand and is available across several screens. In addition to computers, Atresmedia has apps for iOS, Android and Windows tablets and smartphones, and Samsung Smart TVs.

    Following a decision by the Spanish Government, nine signals need to be closed down before 6 May in a move which has upset both the media industry and viewers. The move follows a ruling by Spain's Supreme Tribunal which said that the latest bid for licences in 2010 didn't follow the correct procedure or rules of competition.

    In an initiative promoted by the website Vertele through Change.org, nearly 130,000 signatures have been collected against the channel blackouts.

    Chello's Canal Cocina plays on Google Glass

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 30-04-2014


    Chello Multicanal's Canal Cocina network is to launch an app for Google Glass during the App Date, a pioneering project supported by Microsoft, and will be presented by Espacio Fundación Telefónica.

    Aware of the increasing presence of tablets and smartphones in the world's kitchens, Canal Cocina wanted to move a step forward and launch on Google's wearable device, which is still not fully available commercially.

    The app has been designed by Chello's multimedia staff, directed by Phil González and Almudena Guisado.

    During the platform's presentation, four Spanish chefs will test it by cooking with help of the multi-device network. Each one will choose a different screen and app in order to compare Google Glass to other devices in front of the audience.

    America addicted to binge-viewing

    Joseph O'Halloran | 30-04-2014

    A survey conducted by strategic research, marketing and brand consultancy Miner & Co Studio has revealed that seven-tenths of US TV viewers consider themselves binge-viewers.

    Moreover, and in what is continued excellent news for over-the-top (OTT) and online video service providers whose offerings are being consumed at a rapid pace, the Can't Stop, Won't Stop: Binge-Viewing Is our New Favourite Addiction report showed that the same percentage of respondents regarded such behaviour as addictive.

    The study defines binge-viewing as watching three or more episodes of one series in a single sitting, with frequent binge-viewers being those who binge a few times per week or more and infrequent binge-viewers those who binge once a month or less. It showed that 17% of binge-viewers do so on a daily basis, 63% weekly and 90% on a monthly basis. Frequent binge-viewers skew towards the young with 61% being millennials.

    Over two-fifths (43%) of frequent binge-viewers watch more TV because of binge-viewing, yet a quarter of all viewers surveyed said they dislike binge-viewing because they "don't have anything left to watch once they finish." Yet nearly three-quarters (71%) said binge-viewing is "totally normal" and 59% considering the habit to be a harmless addiction. In fact, according to the survey, frequent binge-viewers are more likely to associate positive qualities to binge-viewing than infrequent viewers.

    "Our research shows that the way we consume entertainment continues to evolve – a pattern that we see repeated as viewers embrace and adapt to new platforms and choices," said Robert Miner, president of Miner & Co Studio. "A great deal of attention has been paid, with good reason, to the role and impact of binge-viewing on dramas such as Breaking Bad, House of Cards and Walking Dead, however we found that comedy is a favoured binge-viewing genre that's showing notable strength as well. At our core, we are wired to crave good stories that entertain us, and our TV-watching behaviour – and addiction to binge-viewing – isn't boxed in by genre."

    Rebecca Hawkes | 30-04-2014

    Just 35.81 million of a registered 62.97 million subscribers to India's six private direct-to-home (DTH) satellite TV platforms are currently active, according to the country's media regulator.

    In its performance indicator report for the quarter ending December 2013, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) says around 57% of those registered with Dish TV, Tata Sky, Sun Direct, Airtel Digital, Reliance Big TV and Videocon d2h are currently receiving satellite TV services.

    BBC Trust finds news output 'distant' from some viewers' lives

    Editor | 30-04-2014

    Even though BBC News remains highly regarded and trusted, it needs to act to maintain its reputation with audiences, the body responsible for best usage of the Licence Fee has found.

    According to a review by the BBC Trust, audiences do actually think the BBC does significantly better than other news providers in providing up-to-date news, being easy to understand, giving in-depth coverage, having expert reporters and covering a wide range of stories. Four out of five UK adults watch, read or listen to BBC News each week, with BBC TV news alone watched by two-thirds of adults.

    However, the review also identified what it called a concern that younger audiences' use of broadcast news is continuing to decline, and that there was a risk that they may not turn to the BBC as they get older, as has traditionally been the case. Indeed, some audiences said that BBC News can feel 'distant' from their lives in editorial agenda and tone, and there are increased expectations about what BBC News Online should be delivering.

    For example, the BBC's current affairs programming was seen as being of high quality and keeping audiences informed of issues, but they rate it less well for offering fresh perspectives and covering issues that other channels would not, and audience awareness of the different current affairs programmes is low.

    "The challenges faced by BBC News in retaining its audiences and its reputation are by no means unique to the BBC, but the corporation's obligation to serve everyone means it must do better than other broadcasters," said BBC Trustee Richard Ayre, commenting on the report. "Though news and current affairs are performing extremely well, the issues we've asked the BBC to address will help them to keep pace with changing audiences and unprecedented technological shifts. None of this is about radical or sudden changes in editorial direction, it's simply ensuring the BBC is fleet of foot in responding to the challenges ahead."

    In response to its finding, the BBC Trust has set out a number of actions for the BBC Executive, including developing its online and mobile news provision so that it remains relevant for audiences in a rapidly-changing market; broadening the agenda and tone of BBC News to address audience concerns such as making more use of regional and local reporters on national network news; increasing the impact of its current affairs output, with commissioning decisions driven by the significance and relevance of the subject matter and the insight offered to audiences; and ensuring that a wider range of international stories are available to audiences in the UK, making better use of the scale of the BBC's foreign newsgathering resources.

    Streaming media player market grows 50%

    Michelle Clancy | 30-04-2014

    Escalating uptake of over-the-top (OTT) services was the engine for worldwide unit shipments of streaming media players to grow by more than 50% in 2013 to reach nearly 15 million units, according to SNL Kagan MRG.

    And while that growth is expected to flatten out over the course of the forecast period, sustained consumer demand has actually been surprising, the firm said.

    "While many felt that these products would be quickly replaced by other consumer electronics devices capable of streaming video such as smart TVs and Internet-connected Blu-ray players, the streaming media player market continues to shrug off such challenges," the firm noted. "Low prices and ease-of-use have led to continued consumer demand with many households enjoying more than one of these devices."

    That said, challenges do remain. For one, approximately 90% of all streaming media player unit shipments occur in North America, SNL Kagan said. In order for the market segment to continue to growing, vendors will need to push their products into new markets such as Western Europe and select countries in Asia.

    The segment is also fragmented. "While Apple TV remains the leading streaming media player product on the market, approximately 40 different vendors are currently shipping streaming media player products," the firm explained. "These vendors run the gamut from consumer electronics giants such as Samsung, Sony and Hisense, to start-up companies like Nano Tech and QPlay."
