    Ono grows revenues and customers

    May 8, 2014 10.33 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    ONO MobileSpanish cablenet Ono has provided new owners Vodafone with an early fillip. The company has increased revenues by 2.8% to €4210 million and added 33,000 new customers in the first quarter.

    A record 283,000 new services were added in the first quarter, an increase of 5.4%, which Ono is attributing to its new bundling strategy.

    TiVo continue to grow and as of March 31, 2014 was in 382,000 homes, representing 49% of its television customer base.

    Rosalia Portela, CEO of Ono, said that “in the first months of 2014 have experienced strong business momentum, which has allowed us to grow customers, both fixed and mobile, and to consolidate our strategic products. It is one of the best periods for the company, where we have been able to further consolidate revenue growth,”

    However, despite the addition of new customer signatures, there was still a 7% fall in EBITDA and losses of €24 million.

    Investment of €83 million made since January has focussed on ‘Ono WiFi’, which is being rolled out in a number of Spanish cities, and improving the capabilities of its mobile service.

    In broadband, Ono added in the period more than 30,000 new customers to its portfolio, reaching a total of 1,561,000. High speeds continue apace and now account for 57% of its internet customer base, with more than 849,000 customers at the end of the first quarter.

    Polish digitisation assessed

    May 8, 2014 10.45 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    TVN Spring 2011 promoCommercial broadcasters have been the biggest winners in Poland’s transition to digital broadcasting, at least in terms of coverage.

    According to the Ministry of Administration and Digitisation of Poland (MAiC), prior to the transition, which was completed last year, the four main commercial broadcasters (Polsat, TVN, TV Puls and TV4) reached anything between 25% and 86% of the population.

    Today, using the second multiplex (MUX-2), that figure stands at 98.5%. MUX-2 also distributes TVN7, Puls 2, TV6 and Polsat Sport.

    At the same time, the first multiplex (MUX-1) contains a number of commercial stations that were previously not available to viewers.

    These are Eska TV, TTV, Polo TV, ATM Rozrywka, TV Trwam, TVP ABC, Stopklataka and Fokus TV and all reach 98.6% of the population.

    As for public broadcasting, the flagship channel TVP1 reached 98.7% and regional station only 71% prior to digitisation.

    Now TVP’s TVP1HD, TVP2 HD, TVP Info, TVP Kultura, TVP Polonia, TVP Historia and TVP Rozrywka reach 99.5% of the population via the third multiplex (MUX-3).

    At the same time, TVP’s regional programmes are now accessible to at least 98% of the population.

    RTL Group claims good start into the year

    May 8, 2014 11.18 Europe/London By Robert Briel


    Advertising markets continued to show signs of recovery in the first quarter of 2014, according to the RTL Group in its Q1, 2014 report.

    With the exceptions of Germany which was estimated to be stable and France which was estimated to be down 2.0%, all European net TV advertising markets in RTL Group’s territories were up year-on-year.

    Reported Group revenue was stable at €1,313 million (Q1/2013: €1,317 million). Lower revenues at UFA Sports and negative exchange rate effects were offset by higher revenues from RTL Nederland and FremantleMedia.

    In January 2014, RTL Hrvatska launched its new children’s channel RTL Kockica in Croatia. In the first quarter 2014, the new channel already achieved an average daytime audience share of 20.6% among children in the country.

    On March 27, RTL CBS Asia Entertainment Network launched its second pay-TV channel RTL CBS Extreme HD. The channel aims to cater male audiences and offers action-packed entertainment programmes. The channel is already on air in Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.

    On May 8, Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland launches its new pay-TV channel, Geo Television, which will be available on Deutsche Telekom’s IPTV platform Entertain

    “Overall, we had a good start into the year and generated one of our best first-quarter results. While Groupe M6 and RTL Radio operated in a continuously very challenging economic environment in France, all our other broadcasters reported higher or stable profit contributions year-on-year, benefiting from the recovery of most of our European TV advertising markets<” said Anke Schäferkordt and Guillaume de Posch, Co-Chief Executive Officers of RTL Group, in a joint statement.

    “We are continuing to invest across all strategic pillars: broadcast, content and digital. We are delighted about the successful launch of our Croatian children’s channel RTL Kockica and are looking forward to launching a new pay-TV channel, Geo Television, in Germany today, which builds on the strong and popular magazine brand ‘Geo’. Additionally, we have significantly strengthened our position in the US with the acquisition of495 Productions which is one of the leading production companies for the growing US cable market.”

    Sky News launches own catch up TV service

    May 8, 2014 11.27 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    Sky News Catch upSky News has launched its own catch-up TV service. It forms part of Sky’s On Demand offering that is now available to 5 million Sky customers with a connected Sky+HD set-top box.

    The service is designed to allow viewers to choose the stories they want to view at a time of their choosing. It will also offer special programming such as Week in Review, a quick fire irreverent look back on the week’s news, chaired by Jayne Secker and featuring Sky News’ paper review favourites Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire.

    The recently launched Friday night programme Entertainment Week hosted by Sky News’ Entertainment Correspondent, Lucy Cotter, will headline a Catch Up category dedicated to Showbiz.

    There will also be a special section focusing on the world of technology featuring the work of new technology correspondent, Tom Cheshire, as well as the weekly tech show, Swipe.

    John Ryley, head of Sky News, commented: “Sky News is committed to developing the ways in which customers can watch its content. Sky News on Catch Up TV offers Sky customers the chance to curate the news how they want it at a time when we are producing an increasing amount of high quality features”.

    In many ways the new service is a up to date rendering of the once popular news multiscreens, repurposing content and taking advantage of the latest technology developments.

    The BBC already has a BBC News app, found on Virgin Media, Roku and some smart TVs.

    Poland prepares for Horizon

    May 8, 2014 13.44 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    HorizonBoxPoland will be the next country in Liberty Global’s European operations to launch Horizon.

    Speaking in a conference call accompanying the company’s latest set of results, Mike Fries did not provide an exact date for the launch but said that the service would employ a cloud-based RDK platform that is supported by Liberty Global, Time Warner Cable and Comcast.

    CTO Balan Nair added another version of the RDK platform, known as 1.2 and offering more functionality, would be introduced in 2015.

    Poland will be the fifth market to launch Horizon and the first in CEE.

    UPC Polska had been previously expected to launch the service in 2013.

    Horizon has achieved the most success to date in Switzerland, where it has 160,000 customers and a 24% penetration of the digital TV subscriber base.

    Separately, UPC Polska says that as of the end of Q1 nearly 80% of its internet subscribers opted for speeds of 30 Mbps and above.

    Its TV offer consisted of over 190 digital channels, of which 47 were in HD, along with additional packages, including Canal+ and HBO, plus over 5,000 VOD programmes, half of which were free.

    UPC Polska has also announced that its free WiFi hotspot service, available to its subscribers, has been extended to the city of Krakow.

    It was launched on a trial basis in Sopot, on the Baltic coast, in April.

    Discovery, Liberty Global team on $930MN All3Media acquisition

    Michelle Clancy 09 May 2014

    Discovery Communications and Liberty Global are forming a joint venture to acquire All3Media, an international producer and distributor of TV programming, for about $930 million.

    Each will contribute a 50% stake to buy the company from its founders and the Permira funds.

    All3Media is an independent production group in the UK, with headquarters in London, which has a strong presence in the US, Germany, the Netherlands and New Zealand. It also has 26 creative centres around the world.

    All3Media has a diverse catalogue of more than 8,000 hours of content across numerous genres, with production capabilities in drama, comedy, factual and factual entertainment programming.

    Discovery and Liberty Global said that they will preserve All3Media's creative independence and focus on serving its global broadcasting partners. The All3Media group will continue to operate under its own name with its own executive management team, and its existing creative operating model as a standalone, independently managed entity.

    "For Discovery Communications, the world's No 1 pay-TV programmer, it has always been about creating compelling content for our global audiences, and this partnership is yet another way for us to work with the best storytellers in the business," said David Zaslav, president and CEO of Discovery. "This venture allows us to work closely with Liberty Global, a valued partner and the largest international cable company, in managing a financially strong, innovative and creatively prolific production company. We are very excited to support All3Media's talented management team as they continue their steady growth around the world."

    UK tops online video viewability league

    Joseph O'Halloran | 09 May 2014


    With the country fast becoming a hot spot for online video, the UK is performing best for programmatic video viewability according to the latest TubeMogul Quarterly Update.

    The online video advertising platform provider's survey analysed worldwide inventory data from October 2013 through March 2014, examining trends and changes in inventory, viewability rates and the average cost-per-minute by ad format.

    Overall, UK viewability rates averaged 43% in Q1 2014, the highest rate worldwide, and 7% higher than the global average. This, said TubeMogul, reflects both the increased adoption of viewability measurement tools as well as publishers embracing programmatic technology. Pre-roll inventory grew 118% from Q4 2013 to Q1 2014. Mobile inventory was found to have grown 154% over that same time, meaning that the UK was the only region with triple-digit growth in both inventory types and said the company indicating a growing recognition of programmatic benefits for marketers with branding objectives.

    Available desktop pre-roll auctions increased 118% quarter-over-quarter, the largest growth worldwide, indicating mutual realisation of programmatic value amongst both media buyers and premium publishers. Mobile inventory outpaced pre-roll inventory growth, jumping 154% to over 67 million average auctions in Q1. Pre-roll ads had the lowest cost-per-minute of any ad format, falling 47% to £0.025 in Q1. Along with pre-roll, both connected TV and mobile ad formats saw cost-per-minute decreases quarter-over-quarter, which is regarded as good news for marketers looking to reach viewers across multiple screens.

    Available pre-roll inventory in the UK increased 118% quarter-over-quarter, vaulting from an average 162 million auctions in Q4 2013 to an average 356 million auctions in Q1 2014. This was spurred by a 400% increase in Tier 2 inventory, which jumped from an average 25 million auctions in Q4 to nearly 125 million auctions in Q1; Tier 1 inventory increased 18% over the same period. As the UK's programmatic adoption accelerates, TubeMogul expect that premium publishers will open more of their inventory to automation.

    As advertisers continue to optimise for viewability, TubeMogul predicts that viewability rates for both ad exchange/SSP and programmatic direct inventory will increase.

    DISH beats revenue and subscriber expectations in Q1

    Michelle Clancy | 09 May 2014

    DISH Network, the second-largest US satellite TV provider has reported a better-than-expected 6% growth in quarterly revenue due to higher net subscriber additions.

    The company added a net 40,000 subscribers in the quarter ended March 31, beating Wall Street expectations of adding 21,900. Subscriber additions improved as the rate of cancellations fell to 1.42% from 1.47% a year earlier. The company ended the quarter with 14.1 million pay-TV subscribers.

    Revenue rose to $3.59 billion from $3.38 billion a year earlier — again beating expectations. Analysts had expected revenue of $3.58 billion. Average revenue per pay-TV user rose 5% to $82.36.

    Net income however fell to $175.9 million, down from $215.6 million a year earlier as the company spent more on content and transmission. Total costs and expenses rose about 8%. The company said it expected expenses to increase especially going forward for acquiring content from local broadcast channels and for sports programming.

    Earlier in the week, larger rival DirecTV reported that profit fell to $561 million, down from $690 million a year earlier. US net subscriber additions also fell, to 12,000 from 21,000 a year earlier. Analysts were expecting net additions of 14,000.
