    Jazztel sale draws nearer

    May 6, 2014 08.07 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    JazztelThe Spanish alternative telco Jazztel has undergone a change in ownership, with Fidelity reducing and Deutsche Bank increasing the shares they hold in the company.

    Cinco Dias reports that the US’ Fidelity now holds a 4.01% stake, having reduced it from 4.55% and – only a few weeks ago – 4.94%.

    However, it remains the second largest shareholder after the president Leopoldo Fernandez Pujals, who owns 15%.

    Deutsche Bank has meanwhile increased its presence from 2.19% to 2.24% in the last few days.

    There have been strong rumours about a possible sale of Jazztel following on from the recent acquisition of Ono, Spain’s largest cable operator, to Vodafone.

    These have resulted in its capitalization increasing by 44.6% since the start of the year.

    Virgin revamps packages with quad-play bundles

    May 6, 2014 10.40 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    Dana StrongSeven years after Virgin Media became the face of UK cable, the company is to introduce a bundling strategy that combines its broadband packages with a mobile SIM card.

    The first bundles are initially available exclusively for existing Virgin Media customers but will be available to new customers from the end of May.

    Although discounts have previously been offered to mobile customers taking a mobile package, this is the first time an official bundle has been in place.

    The so-called ‘Big Bundles’ include broadband of 50 Mbps as standard.

    At £45 a month, the ‘Big Kahuna’ bundle offers broadband at 152 Mbps and a TiVo package that includes 230 channels, including 40 in HD.

    Another Big Bundle, the ‘Big Bang’, makes 100 Mbps broadband available together with TiVo and a home phone talk plan at £30 a month.

    Dana Strong, chief operating officer at Virgin Media said: “Our fantastic new bundles deliver unprecedented value as standard. For the first time, households will be able to get the best broadband together with the UK’s best value mobile SIM, as part of a bundle perfectly tailored to the customer’s needs. And I’m delighted our current customers have the chance to enjoy this fantastic new flexibility and unparalleled value first.”

    Virgin Media TiVo customers also get access to Virgin TV Anywhere, the entertainment-anywhere service, so they can watch their favourite TV channels online or on mobiles and tablets.

    Telenet introduces service policy for purchased decoders

    May 6, 2014 12.34 Europe/London By Robert Briel


    Telenet STBsTelenet is launching a service policy for purchased Digicorders, Digiboxes and CI+ modules (“TV with a Card”) with immediate effect.

    The company undertakes to guarantee the basic digital television services that are provided on these purchased decoders for a period of five years. With this, Telenet is responding to reactions from customers following the announced discontinuation of support of SD decoders on September 2, 2014. The new service policy is applicable to all TV decoders sold by Telenet that are currently available in the market, or that will be launched onto the market in the future.

    With this service commitment, Telenet aims to guarantee that the services of digital television that are provided with any purchased decoder will be available for at least five years, with no extra cost. In the event of a technological innovation being introduced during this period, with the result that a certain category of Digiboxes or Digicorders would no longer function, Telenet plans to provide an alternative by making a corresponding decoder available to the customer for the remaining term of the remaining period. At the end of the period during which the decoder is made available free of charge, the customer will return to the rental rate that is applicable at the time. After this period, the customer can, of course, also simply return his decoder to an authorised Telenet Service Center.

    This service policy comes into force retroactively on April 2, 2014 and applies to customers who are using a Digicorder or Digibox that was purchased and activated from April 2, 2009 onwards. To calculate the effective period that a new Digicorder or Digibox will be made available free of charge, the initial purchase date will apply. Telenet will put a new decoder at the disposal of the customer until the end of the remaining period after purchase from Telenet.

    Because the technology continues to evolve rapidly, Telenet still advises its customers to rent either Digicorders or Digiboxes.

    “When we announced the discontinuation of our SD decoders early in April, we received major feedback from our customers. Customers who had purchased a Digibox or Digicorder in recent years had the feeling they were being left out in the cold, and that Telenet did not understand their problem,” said Inge Smidts, SVP Residential Marketing in a statement.

    “We listened to these customers. With our new service commitment, we aim to offer a structured solution and provide more transparency about the length of time over which a customer can enjoy the basic digital TV services. That’s the deal we are now making with our customers. In this context, I would also like to thank Test-Aankoop for their constructive attitude with regard to the development of our new service policy.

    KPN, Ericsson trial Netherland's first live LTE mobile TV broadcast

    Joseph O'Halloran | 06 May 2014

    Aiming to replicate the success of a similar trial in Australia, Ericsson, in partnerships with KPN, has trialled the Netherland's first live LTE broadcast in the Amsterdam Arena football stadium.

    KPN is the first network operator in the Netherlands to conduct live tests with Ericsson's LTE Broadcast solution, which the communications technology and services provider claims will 'revolutionise' video delivery in mobile networks. The trial—which also saw contributions from Amsterdam ArenA, Qualcomm Technologies, Samsung and IBM—took place on Saturday 3 May during the football game between home side Ajax and NEC.

    The LTE Broadcast solution is claimed to being a mobile TV and video experience to a new level, offering the highest-quality video content for popular events with guaranteed delivery. Ericsson claims that it can deliver the same content simultaneously to multiple users with the capability to support a virtually unlimited number of users, thereby maintaining efficient use of spectrum and network equipment.

    "Our experience with our country-wide 4G network demonstrates there is a clear customer demand for video content during events," commented Joost Steltenpool, Director Access, KPN. "Therefore our aim was to find a solution for delivering high quality video content to large groups of people. The key for such a solution is greater network efficiency and guaranteed service quality. Ericsson's LTE Broadcast solution has been shown to deliver such a solution to our customers in the Amsterdam Arena. KPN is enthusiastic about the success of the pilot and is currently exploring next steps ".

    With TV and video traffic is set to dominate mobile networks and expected to grow by around 60% annually until the end of 2018, Ericsson says that the result will be increasing pressure on operators to satisfy their customers to enjoy the TV anywhere experience, while at the same time managing network costs and efficiency. "By blending insight on consumer habits, deep mobile networks expertise, twenty years of video compression technology leadership and service leadership we are able to help operators maximise the revenue opportunity represented by this rapid evolution in video consumption and user demand," remarked Valter D'Avino, Head of Region Western & Central Europe.

    IPTV set to overtake DTH in Western Europe

    May 6, 2014 16.09 Europe/London By Robert Briel


    vintage_tv-setPaying IPTV subscribers will overtake pay satellite TV ones in 2018, according to a new report from Digital TV Research.

    The Digital TV Western Europe report forecasts that IPTV subscriptions will climb by 7.5 million (38%) between 2013 and 2020 compared with 1.2 million additions for both pay satellite TV (up by 5%) and pay DTT (up 22%). Digital cable will increase by nearly 13 million (up 42%).

    Despite a return to more positive market conditions, pay TV subscriptions will only increase by 8.7 million (6.6%) between 2013 and 2020 to 103.65 million. However, the number of digital pay TV subscribers will increase by 28.1% (nearly 23 million), with analog cable subs falling from 14.03 million to zero by 2019.

    Western Europe will reach 159 million digital TV households by end-2014, up by 4 million during the year and by 33 million since 2010. This total will grow to 174 million by 2020. Free-to-air DTT will remain the most popular platform – with 44 million primary homes by 2020. FTA satellite TV will supply a further 27 million.

    Despite the number of pay TV homes increasing, pay TV revenues will remain flat at around $33 billion. Satellite TV will remain the most lucrative pay TV platform, but its revenues will fall every year from 2011 – despite subs numbers rising. Cable TV revenues peaked in 2012, but will lose $1.3 billion (10.2%) between 2013 and 2020 – although subscriber numbers will also fall (by 2.6%). Digital cable TV revenues will peak in 2017. IPTV revenues will climb by 26.3% between 2013 and 2020 to $4.91 billion (with subscriber numbers up by 38.4%).

    The UK ($7,535 million) will still be the most lucrative pay TV market by 2020. Despite having the most pay TV subscribers by some distance, Germany’s pay TV revenues will be a lot lower than the UK – at $4,741 million. In fact, Italy ($4,539 million) will not be too far behind Germany despite having fewer than half its pay TV subscribers.
