    BBC World News launches first ever programme app

    Joseph O'Halloran | 03 May 2014

    The BBC Horizons series, focusing on the latest technologies and innovations that could revolutionise the way we live, will return for its fourth year from 10 May.

    Presented by the award-winning business journalist Adam Shaw, the new 16-part series will break new ground by being available as an app available to download on iOS and Android mobile devices. As well as offering extended interviews and video diaries from Adam Shaw, the will provides users with a tailored experience with easy-to-find content based on location and theme, and the ability to favourite clips from all four series.

    “With the BBC World News series about how science and technologies are transforming businesses and the way we live entering its fourth season, it seemed like the perfect occasion to bring all of our Horizons content together in an app,” commented Richard Pattinson, Commissioning Editor, bbc.com. “Our audience can enjoy video, blogs and infographics from the programmes wherever they are.”

    The first episode takes a look at ground-breaking innovations in light technology from quantum dot technology, footballs and gravity-fed devices that can generate energy and light for the developing world, as well as featuring interviews with expert innovators and CEOs.

    Sky affirms commitment to investing in content

    Editor | 03 May 2014

    BSkyB managing director of content Sophie Turner Laing has re-affirmed the company’s commitment to content.


    Speaking at the Voice of the Listener and Viewer (VLV) conference, Turner Laing's speech, ‘Pay television’s contribution to quality and diversity’, came just after Sky returned a mixed set of financial results, which showed that the pay-TV giant had revived flat TV subs while profits had been pegged back year on year.

    One key reasons for the trimmed take was a substantial rise in content acquisition, something facing all players in the industry. Undeterred, Turner Laing, assured the audience and the broadcast industry that Sky was “as hungry as ever” to keep investing in content and to build on what the executive regarded as the reputation Sky had established in producing its own shows.

    Moreover, she revealed that Sky’s current strategy of focusing on those areas that it did when it began 25 years ago — sports, films and rolling news — would not be sufficient to guarantee success in the modern broadcast environment. “We think of these as our traditional strengths and are as committed today to these areas as we’ve ever been,” she remarked. “But we realised a few years ago that just doing what we’ve always done wasn’t going to be enough.

    Turner Laing revealed that Sky asked itself how it could do in entertainment what it had done in sport, movies and news, that would give its existing customers more value and reach out in new ways to those homes that had previously thought that Sky wasn’t for them. She also stressed that Sky was ready to back arts and entertainment programming, no matter how challenging the content.

    “We heard from our customers that they had an appetite for more great British content – and, just as importantly, an appetite for something a bit different. We saw this as a great opportunity – a chance for Sky to look fundamental to other areas of our business. It means doing things differently and surprising people…It means using our expertise in technology to take great story-telling to a new level…And it means being ready to invest in areas that are challenging and risky. We can do this because as a pay-TV provider we’re able to indulge the passions of our customers.

    For example, if an ad-funded broadcaster were to broadcast a series on the arts that attracted an audience of 50,000 people, it may not generate sufficient advertising revenue to work for them commercially. However, if 50,000 people were to choose to take Sky because they love Sky Arts, with each paying a monthly subscription all year round, then that’s brilliant.”

    The speech also heard the executive disclose that the channel sees a continuing opportunity in high-quality, ambitious, cinematic drama. “We know that this is an area of strength for the terrestrial channels, but we think we can offer something distinctive. And we believe customers will welcome even more choice,” she added. “We’re investing a record amount in our entertainment content this year and we have big plans to do even more in the future.”

    Spain's FTTH R launches multiscreen service

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 04 May 2014

    Spain's northern regional cable operator R is to launch a multiscreen service. The platform is working in beta test for the moment and includes, without extra cost for the R subscribers, up to 19 channels of the pay-TV service.

    The service is based on the operator's fibre network and data capacity. The multiscreen platform offers different video resolutions, and a connection of at least 2Mbps is needed.

    The platform has been launched for computers and some smartphones, although it will be adding more smart and mobile devices before launching the final version. It has also some limitations, as it only allows 5 simultaneous connections and the usage time out of the home connection is limited.

    Before the official launch, R said it will also add the Rebobina functions, a catch-up service available in the regular pay-TV platform. inShare0

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 04 May 2014

The service has a maximum capacity of 4,000 viewers per match.

    ESPN Providing Thorough Mobile Coverage for 2014 FIFA World Cup

    In June, the most talked about event won’t be E3, WWDC or even Google I/O. That award goes to the FIFA World Cup, which is set to kick off on June 12 in Brazil—a little over a month away. I remember when teams were put into groups last year like it was yesterday. Maybe that’s because the U.S. is one of the hardest groups of the tournament, but that’s neither here nor there. If you own a smartphone, tablet, TV or computer, you’ll be able to watch every match unfold thanks to the coverage being provided by ESPN.

    The worldwide leader in sports this week announced its plans to dedicate an exorbitant amount of resources behind the quadrennial event, which is the most watched sporting event across the globe. Matches will be broadcast over ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes and ABC through the company’s WatchESPN and ESPN3 initiatives. In addition to mobile devices, you’ll also be able to catch games on Xbox LIVE, Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire TV, reaching a possible viewership of 92 million households in the U.S. alone.

    For those without access to the stream, users will be able to follow play-by-play for every game through ESPN FC, which will offer breaking news, highlights, commentary and more. In addition, an ESPN FC app will launch for iOS and Android, catering specifically to soccer fans. The app will act as a hub for stats, schedules and everything in between, and even provide goal highlights in near real-time. The app will be setup similarly to ESPN’s existing SportsCenter app, so if you’re familiar with that, this one will be focused solely on the biggest sport in the world.

    ESPN also said that once the World Cup is over, the ESPN FC app will switch its focus to European leagues, Liga MX and MLS, while continuing to offer coverage of other major tournaments. Otherwise, if you have an Internet connection and access to WatchESPN—or ESPN through a cable provider—the sports giant will offer extensive and thorough coverage of the event. Expect to see plenty of advertisements this month leading up to the June 12 kickoff.

    THALES - SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH OF KAZSAT3 AND LOUTCH-5V SATELLITES

    (ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 02 May 2014 Release date- 30042014 - Cannes - The KazSat3 and Loutch-5V communications satellites, were successfully launched yesterday by a Proton rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

    KazSat3 will be operated by Kazakhstan, while Loutch 5V will be operated by the Russian space agency Roscosmos.

    Thales Alenia Space signed a contract with the ISS-Reshetnev Company in 2011 to supply the payload for the KazSat3 satellite, which will provide commercial telecommunications services throughout Kazakhstan. Thales Alenia Space also supplied all equipment for the transponders on the Loutch-5V communications satellite for the Russian space agency Roscosmos.

    The KazSat3 satellite, based on an Express 1000H platform, was integrated and tested at ISS facilities in Russia, with the support of Thales Alenia Space. It will be positioned at 58.5-degree East, and offers a design life exceeding 15 years. Fitted with 28 Ku-band transponders to cover the country's footprint, KazSat3 generates payload power of about 5.5 kW.

    KazSat 3 is being launched within the scope of Kazakhstan's space program. Thales Alenia Space already provided the payloads for Kazsat1, launched in 2006, and Kazsat2, launched in 2010.

    Loutch-5V is a geostationary relay satellite, positioned at 95-degree East. It will provide telecommunications, television and data transmission services between the International Space Station and the ground. It will also be used as a communications relay for Russian satellites in low Earth orbit, throughout their lifespan, as well as with launchers. Loutch-5V offers four S and Ku-band channels. All transponders were installed on a platform built by ISS-Reshetnev. Weighing 1800 kg at launch the satellite offers a design life exceeding 15 years.

    Thales Alenia Space has teamed up with ISS-Reshetnev for more than 15 years, starting with the SESAT program. In the early 2000s, Thales Alenia Space and ISS started the joint marketing of satellites based on ISS's Express-1000 platform. ISS and Thales Alenia Space have indeed already combined their skills to develop other spacecraft for the international market, including Amos 5, Telkom 3 and Yamal 401. The two companies then announced the creation of a joint venture, Universum Space Technologies, which has been operational since August 2013. The jointly-owned company will enable the two parent companies to increase their respective market shares in both the Russian and export markets.

    About Thales Alenia Space Thales Alenia Space, a joint venture between Thales (67%) and Finmeccanica (33%), is a key European player in space telecommunications, navigation, Earth observation, exploration and orbital infrastructures. Thales Alenia Space and Telespazio form the two parent companies' 'Space Alliance', which offers a complete range of services and solutions.

    Because of its unrivaled expertise in dual (civil/military) missions, constellations, flexible payloads, altimetry, meteorology and high-resolution optical and radar instruments, Thales Alenia Space is the natural partner to countries that want to expand their space program. The company posted consolidated revenues in excess of 2 billion euros in 2013, and has 7,500 employees in six countries.
