    One-In-Five pay-TV subs use TV Everywhere monthly

    May 7, 2014 11.05 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent


    Live TV streaming to tabletsMore than one-in-five (21%) pay-TV subscribers use the TV Everywhere services provided by their operator at least once per month, according to the latest NPD Group TV Everywhere Report.

    Although the pay-TV industry has increasing concerns that “Over-The-Top” (OTT) subscription video-on-demand services (SVOD) will lead to cord cutting or cord trimming, NPD’s report finds that consumers who subscribe to SVOD are actually among the most active TV Everywhere users.

    Three out of four SVOD homes also have a Pay TV subscription, and 25 percent use their provider’s TV Everywhere service at least once per month.

    Not only are dual SVOD and pay-TV subscribers more likely to have tried TV Everywhere, they are also using it more frequently. Three-in-ten SVOD subscribers use TV Everywhere weekly, compared to only two-in-ten TV Everywhere users who do not subscribe to SVOD.

    “Though some SVOD subscribers may be cutting the cord, the evidence is that the overwhelming majority are not only keeping the cord, they are lengthening it through aggressive use of TV Everywhere,” said Russ Crupnick, SVP, industry analyst.

    “This speaks to the level of engagement they have with programming and a comfort in using the Internet to both access and interact with that programming”

    Not surprising given their investment in TV Everywhere, 9 out of 10 SVOD subscribers reported being satisfied with their TV Everywhere experience. Today those dual users say they most appreciate the ability to watch anywhere in the home, and 46 percent want the ability to actually download the shows in order to watch them outside their home.

    “TV Everywhere is about mobility and control,” said Crupnick. “Customers, especially subscription streamers, are becoming accustomed to over-the-top options where the location and device are no longer barriers, and they crave a similar experience with TV Everywhere. The way to keep SVOD subscribers using TV Everywhere platforms is to make the experience even more portable.”

    Canal Digital falls continue

    May 7, 2014 11.24 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    Canal Digital dish installCanal Digital is continuing to suffer subscriber erosion while maintaining revenues from its existing base.

    9,000 DTH subscribers fell in the first quarter, taking the installed base to 920,000. Norway and Denmark suffered the biggest losses, going from 485,000 to 477,000 and 94,000 to 86,000 respectively. Sweden stands at 306,000 (305,000) and Finland stable at 52,000.

    A 0.7% increase was largely due to currency gains.

    EBITDA within parent Telenor’s Broadcast division grew by 8% to NOK 513 million.

    The company received a gain of NOK 1.2 billion from the divestment of security business Conax on March 26.

    CME turns the corner

    May 7, 2014 11.45 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    CMECentral European Media Enterprises (CME) has posted net revenues of $153.1 million for the first quarter, compared to $132.7 million for the corresponding period last year.

    There were also improvements in its OIBDA (-$2.3 million compared to -$20.8 million) and its net loss (-$48.6 million compared to $109 million).

    Commenting on the results, Michael Del Nin, co-CEO, commented: “The first quarter of 2014 demonstrates tangible results from our operating priorities, including increases in television advertising revenue and carriage fees. Having completed the rights offering and private placement and used the proceeds to discharge the 2016 Fixed Rate Notes, we can now focus our energy on operations to significantly improve financial performance throughout this year.”

    Christoph Mainusch, co-CEO, added: “Despite increased programming investment by some of our competitors and the broadcast of the winter Olympics on other channels, our focus on efficient and targeted investments in programming led to all-day audience shares increasing in our four largest markets. Our brands and leading audience shares are our most valuable assets, and we are committed to maintaining our leadership positions in each country. And the results of our product performance in the first quarter of 2014 demonstrate our commitment to maintaining this audience share leadership.”

    May 7, 2014 13.20 Europe/London By Robert Briel


    logo_metrological.gifDutch based Metrological’s new app framework and Open Source Developer SDK is launched today. A basis for TV app stores, it’s already been adopted by Liberty Global.

    Jeroen Ghijsen, CEO of Metrological added, “The revenue-sharing business model that we’ve developed allows the operator and content provider to capitalise on the trend towards hybrid content, whilst eliminating the complexity, time and resources required to develop,maintain and manage apps for multiple devices on multiple operating systems. It’s a win-win situation for all parties: the consumer, the network operator and the content provider.”

    IPTV boost as global fibre subs set to double by 2019

    Joseph O'Halloran | 08 May 2014

    The amount of fibre-based broadband networks capable of supporting very high quality TV and services is set to expand rapidly over the next five years says a report from ABI Research.

    The analyst's Broadband Subscribers Market Research report found that the worldwide and fibre-optic fixed-line broadband subscriber base grew 6% in 2013, surpassing 665.4 million subscribers. Moreover it found that the fibre-optic broadband segment grew 29% from 2012 to 126.6 million subscribers in 2013, and the analyst expects that by 2019, fibre-optic broadband subscriptions will grow to 265 million subscribers, with a CAGR of 11.7%.

    Chinese operators were found to dominate the fixed broadband subscriber rankings, with China Telecom and China Unicom leading the global fixed broadband market shares with over 100 million and 64 million broadband subscribers respectively at the end of 2013.

    On the back of this growth in subs and connections, ABI found that worldwide fibre-optic broadband service revenue grew over 15% to $46 billion in 2013. It noted that operators such as BT and Russia's VimpelCom reported that growth in fibre-optic broadband customers contributed to overall service revenue growth in 2013.

    "Since revenue from traditional services such as voice and messaging is declining, innovative services and content over high speed broadband networks are proving essential for operators to maintain overall service revenue growth. ABI Research forecasts that the worldwide fibre-optic broadband market will generate $100 billion in 2019," commented Khin Sandi Lynn, industry analyst.

    StarHub takes alleged illegal STB traders to court

    Rebecca Hawkes | 08 May 2014

    Singapore pay-TV operator StarHub has commenced criminal prosecution against two set-top box (STB) dealers, which it alleges were trading in illegal goods.

    The court action follows a police raid in conjunction with StarHub of a storage facility in September 2013, which the operator alleges uncovered "a few hundred illegal set-top boxes".

    Foo Yong Chun Shaun, aged 27, and Chen Wenqiang Daniel, aged 32, appeared in Court on 7 May to face charges for criminal offences under the Broadcasting Act in connection with the distribution of the illegal STBs seized at the raid. If convicted, they face a fine of up to S$40,000 (US$32,000), imprisonment of up to three years, or both.

    "StarHub has, over the years, developed a resilient pay TV network delivering quality content from content creators to our customers," said Lin Shu Fen, head of entertainment and SmartLife, StarHub.

    "As part of our continuous efforts to strengthen our network, StarHub recently completed an upgrading exercise migrating our pay-TV customers to an enhanced encryption standard, which requires a new security smart card to decrypt our broadcast signals. This renders the illegal set-top boxes ineffective."

    ADB upgrades Graphyne user experience

    Michelle Clancy | 08 May 2014

    ADB has upgraded its user experience framework, Graphyne UX, and has launched Graphyne TV, a bundled offering.

    The latest version of Graphyne UX features a global search function and personalisation at the subscriber level with the integration of user lists, micro-banners and parental locking synchronised across all the screens in the home. Service providers can also customise the Graphyne user experience to match their branding and tailor their deployment to closely match their available network services.

    The new version also features profiles that are designed to support different user devices and applications, from HDMI sticks to multi-room servers.

    Graphyne TV features the Graphyne UX and ADB's UnifyTV, the recently launched application environment that provides a 'write once, run anywhere' set of application programming interfaces (APIs) for the development of multiscreen services, thanks to HTML5 support. It supports linear TV, DVR, on-demand, multi-room/multiscreen and over-the-top (OTT). A light version of Graphyne TV supports ADB's entry-level and legacy set-top boxes. It also has support for standalone devices for those operators who are not yet ready for multiscreen.

    By combining the Graphyne UX with UnifyTV, operators have access to UnifyTV's multi-tier Software Development Kit (SDK) to build additional multiscreen applications and services, with the option of making them cloud-based.

    Operators also have the option to deploy Graphyne TV integrated with ADB's Epicentro PMP, so they can remotely manage devices on the home network, using the TR-069 protocol, with a view to fixing any issues before the subscriber notices.

    "Demonstrating pent-up demand for a radical rethink of TV interfaces, Graphyne received a rapturous welcome at IBC last year," said Peter Balchin, CEO at ADB. "Since then, we have been incorporating feedback and suggestions from service providers, while honing the software to deliver enhanced performance, personalisation and customisation. But the icing on the cake is a stylish interface that makes subscribers eager to start using the service." inShare1
