    | 13 May 2014

    Aiming to allow its over-the-top (OTT) subscribers to enjoy high quality video experiences globally, Turkweb has turned to its compatriot Erstream and Octoshape for essential supporting technology.

    "We are excited to work with Erstream and Octoshape, two major innovators in live and on-demand streaming video technology," said Mert Altındağ CEO at Turkweb.

    Virgin Media to offer premium Sky content for next five years

    Editor
    | 13 May 2014

    With BT breathing down the necks of its UK pay-TV rivals, Virgin Media has inked a deal with BSkyB to continue to offer Sky Sports, Sky Movies and other entertainment channels.

    Also through the five-year agreement, Virgin TV customers will be able to access their Sky entertainment channels on multiple devices, including computers, and for the first time, selected tablets and mobiles, via the Virgin TV Anywhere app. From the summer, those TV customers with subscriptions to Sky Movies and Sky Sports will also be able to access live and on-demand content on-the-go through Sky Sports and Sky Movies apps.

    "We're pleased to have extended our partnership with Virgin Media, which increases the reach of our content and reinforces our broadly-based approach to growth," commented BSkyB chief executive Jeremy Darroch. "This agreement builds on our long-standing relationship with Virgin Media, enabling us to deliver our great channels to even more homes across the UK and opening up additional sources of revenue."

    Added Virgin CEO Tom Mockridge: "We are excited our customers will be able to watch even more great TV from Sky on more devices as a result of the most extensive agreement ever signed between Virgin Media and Sky. This promises to be a fantastic summer of entertainment and our customers, whether at home or on the go, will get to enjoy Sky's range of channels for years to come as a result of our investment."

    ESPN expands football slate for MLS and World Cup qualifying matches

    Michelle Clancy
    | 13 May 2014

    ESPN has reached an enhanced multimedia agreement with Soccer United Marketing for the rights to Major League Soccer and US national team matches through 2022.


    The eight-year agreement, beginning in 2015, includes English-language rights for the United States National Teams' World Cup football qualifying matches (men and women) – up to ten matches per year.

    ESPN2 will also televise 34 regular-season matches as part of the MLS Game of the Week series on Sundays, six playoff MLS matches each year, and the MLS All Star game and the MLS Cup in alternating seasons.

    ESPN Deportes meanwhile will present 34 MLS regular-season and six playoff matches with Spanish-language commentators. As part of the agreement, FOX Sports will offer additional MLS and US national team content on its networks.

    Additionally, online network ESPN3 will have exclusive rights to carry Major League Soccer matches outside the home markets of participating teams. The out-of-market matches are now available only through the MLS Live and MLS Direct Kick packages. ESPN3's out-of-market telecasts will exclude matches carried by the league's other national TV partners – FOX Sports and Univision.

    "ESPN remains firmly committed to world-class soccer and this agreement underscores our belief that this is an ascendant sports property," said John Skipper, ESPN president and co-chairman at Disney Media Networks. "We are proud to continue our longstanding relationship with MLS and US soccer, and the broad media rights we have acquired, including enhanced digital rights, will benefit all our platforms."

    MLS commissioner Don Garber, who is also CEO of Soccer United Marketing, added, "We are honoured to partner with ESPN, FOX and Univision to form the most comprehensive US media rights partnership in the history of soccer in our country. The commitment from our television partners in terms of structure, length and magnitude is unprecedented, and these new partnerships are another strong indicator of the League's continued growth and the overall fan interest in our sport."

    ESPN signed its first MLS agreement in 1994 – two years before the league's debut in 1996.

    Opentv, Nagravision begin file patent suits against Apple

    Editor
    | 13 May 2014

    The Kudelski Group's OpenTV and Nagravision subsidiaries have filed three patent infringement suits against Apple alleging the CE giant has infringed three of the companies' patents.

    The suits by Nagravision and Open TV assert that Apple's infringing products and services include iOS mobile devices — in particular iPhone, iPad, and iPod — plus Apple TV, App Store, and OS X-based personal computers.

    In a separate move, Kudelski has appointed two new members, David Fligor and Clay Gaetje, to the intellectual property & innovation leadership team. The execs will act as vice presidents of licensing reporting to senior vice president, intellectual property & innovation Joe Chernesky. Fligor was most recently vice president, corporate development & strategy at TiVo, and Gaetje was most recently vice president, licensing at Rovi.

    Comcast-based Netflix users see benefit of peering agreement

    Michelle Clancy
    | 13 May 2014

    After negotiating a paid peering arrangement with Comcast for dedicated carriage for its over-the-top (OTT) service, Netflix streams continue to increase their average speed on the ISP's network.


    This is the strand-out finding of the April 2014 Netflix ISP Speed Index, the monthly update on which ISPs provide the best primetime Netflix streaming experience based on data from more than 48 million Netflix members worldwide who viewed over one billion hours of TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix each month. April's survey — which for the first time included Canada — found that Comcast streams averaged 2.77Mbps in April 2014 placing the provider in third slot in the major ISP ranking, behind Cablevision Optimum and Cox.

    When it comes to the Great White North, perhaps not surprisingly, the fibre services from Bell Aliant and Bell Canada top the chart, closely followed by cable provider Shaw. As a country, the average speed for Netflix in Canada beats that of the United States, but ranks below most European nations.

    In Latin America, Telecentro has taken the lead in Argentina, unseating Claro, while in Costa Rica Tigo Star has passed Japi for the top spot and in Ecuador TV Cable ceded the lead to Telconet.

    In Europe there has been continued improvement on Telenor ISPs in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, while in Ireland it saw increased performance on UPC.

    UltraHD penetration faster than expected

    Michelle Clancy
    | 13 May 2014

    UltraHD TV ownership is slated to reach penetration of almost a third of US homes by 2020, according to research from Strategy Analytics.


    The survey found that UltraHD TV penetration will grow from less than 10% of homes in the US for the next four years to 33%. Shipments will account for 41% of global flat panel TV units in 2020, up from just 4% this year.

    "Demand for UltraHD TVs is exceeding previous expectations and current adoption rates are similar to those of 1080p TVs back in the mid-2000s when sales penetration hit around 5% of total flat panel demand by the end of year three of 1080p sales," said David Watkins, service director of connected home devices at the firm. "By the end of the decade, UltraHD will become standard in screen sizes larger than 40" although sub 40" sets will remain mostly within the realm of 1080p."

    The US will overtake China in 2020 to become the leading country in terms of UltraHD TV household penetration. By region, UltraHD household penetration will reach 32% in North America, 22% in Western Europe and 18% in Asia Pacific by 2020.

    Contributing to this is the fact that entry level prices for UltraHD TVs will drop below $2,000 before the end of 2014 from one or more of the major global TV brands (Samsung, LG, Sony, and Panasonic), the firm said. So, brand share rankings for UltraHD TV will begin to mirror those of the overall flat panel TV market with Samsung, LG, and Sony dominating global sales volumes outside of China.

    "Despite the limited availability of UltraHD content, early adopters of UltraHD TVs are being attracted by vendor promises of improved picture quality," said Eric Smith, analyst for connected home devices. "TV manufacturers are working to perfect the upscaling engines of their sets, and will look to put a strong marketing focus on the merits of upconverting1080p to UltraHD content until the dam breaks on UltraHD content and broadcast services begin."

    | 13 May 2014

    Yvette Kanouff is joining Cisco to become leader of the service provider video software and solutions (SPVSS) organisation, the home of Cisco's Videoscape software and solutions for pay-TV service providers and media and entertainment companies.


    Kanouff is joining Cisco from Cablevision Systems where she was most recently executive vice president of corporate engineering and technology, responsible for the implementation of strategic technology and critical engineering priorities, identifying emerging technology opportunities and driving the development and integration of new products.

    Prior to joining Cablevision, Yvette served as president of SeaChange, where she led its transition from a hardware company to a software company, helping to move the industry towards Web-centric, open standards-based solutions and architectures. While with SeaChange, she won an Emmy for the company's work on video-on-demand (VOD). Previously, she also served as Time Warner Cable's director of interactive technologies. She holds several patents on VOD-related digital technologies.

    "I'm thrilled to be joining Cisco at such an exciting time for our industry," Kanouff said. "Cisco is playing the most crucial role it ever has in helping service providers deliver new experiences, new consumption models, and to compete with myriad new entertainment and service options. During my time at Cablevision we made tremendous progress on key technological advancements that enabled us to provide significant value to our customers and move the industry forward. I believe Cisco also has the people, the technology and culture to help our customers win."

    As the leader of SPVSS, Yvette will have responsibility for a business that spans end-to-end Videoscape software and solutions, including content protection, cloud video services and delivery and end-user multiscreen experiences.

(What Not to Wear).

    Premier League finale hits net for NBCUniversal

    Editor
    | 13 May 2014

    Showing clearly just how the appetite for football is catching on in the US, NBCUniversal scored a ratings record for its coverage of the final weekend of the English Premier League.

    After making an unprecedented simultaneous presentation of all ten games live on different TV networks, while Spanish-language networks Telemundo and mun2 each televised one match, NBCU posted a combined 1.56 rating up 79% on the previous high water mark of the final day of the 2011-12 Premier League season on ESPN2, FX, Fox Soccer, Speed, and Fuel (0.87 for 10am-Noon ET). On the final Sunday of the 2012-13 season, only two Premier League games aired on rated networks (ESPN2 and FOX Soccer).

    The 2013/2014 season, which went right to the final day, has been regarded as the most interesting in year's and NBCU has benefited greatly over the year from the resurgence of second-placed Liverpool who enjoy a huge following across the US — especially in the cities with huge Irish diasporas — and who is to make a season pre-season tour in the US during August. The owners of Champions Manchester City are also assiduously targeting the US with the acquisition of a New York-based soccer franchise.
