    Mobile data traffic rises in Germany

    May 13, 2014 12.31 Europe/London By Jörn Krieger


    BITKOMThe data volume carried by Germany’s mobile networks has increased more strongly than expected last year.

    267 million gigabytes were distributed by the mobile network operators in 2013, German industry association BITKOM reports with reference to current figures from federal network agency Bundesnetzagentur. The data volume reflects the content of around 57 million DVDs and resembles an increase by 71% compared with 2012.

    “The trend towards mobile internet is stronger than anticipated,” BITKOM’s managing director Bernhard Rohleder said in Berlin. “The new broadband networks based on LTE give the mobile web an additional boost.

    According to a Cisco study, the data traffic on the German mobile networks will multiply by more than ten by 2018.

    85% of Germans use a laptop, smartphone or tablet to surf the net, according to a current BITKOM survey. A stationary desktop PC is only used by 69%.

    Every second German of more than 14 years of age uses a smartphone. Smartphone sales are expected to grow by 12% to almost 30 million devices in Germany in 2014.

    Global digital TV conversion almost complete by 2020

    May 13, 2014 21.12 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent


    Based on forecasts for 138 countries, the number of digital TV homes will increase by more than 1 billion between 2010 and 2020 to 1.68 billion – or up by 185%, according to a new report from Digital TV Research. The Digital TV World Household Forecasts report estimates that the digital TV total will climb by 131 million in 2014 alone.

    Global TV homes


    Global digital TV penetration will reach 97.9% of television households by end-2020, up from 40.5% at end-2010 and 67.7% at end-2014. By 2020, 94 countries will be completely digital compared with only 12 at end-2013. About 124 countries will have more than 90% digital penetration by 2020.

    Of the 762 million digital TV homes to be added between 2013 and 2020, 258 million will come from digital cable. Primary FTA DTT [homes taking DTT but not subscribing to cable, DTH or IPTV] will acquire an additional 292 million. Pay IPTV will more than double to 191 million, with pay DTH up by 79 million.

    Digital cable will become the most popular TV platform in 2014, accounting for 33.6% of the world’s TV households in 2020 (up from 20.9% in 2013). Digital cable TV penetration will exceed 50% of TV households in nine countries by 2020, with Belgium leading at 64.9%.

    Pay IPTV penetration will climb to 11.1% by 2020, up from only 2.5% at end-2010. IPTV penetration will exceed 20% of TV households in 20 countries in 2020; led by Iceland (68.2%). Pay digital satellite TV penetration will be 15.8% by 2020. Penetration will exceed 30% of TV households in 19 countries, including South Africa (58.5%).

    About 26.4% of homes will be primary FTA DTT at end-2020, up from 10.5% in 2013. By 2020, FTA DTT penetration will exceed more than half the TV households in 41 countries. The Sub-Saharan Africa countries will be especially prominent, led by Mali at 82.4% and Niger at 82.0%. However, FTA DTT penetration will fall in 24 countries between 2013 and 2020 as homes are lured away to other platforms.

    The number of digital TV households in Asia Pacific will more than double between 2013 and 2020, with 88 million added in 2014 alone. The region will supply 501 million (66%) of the 762 million digital TV household additions between 2013 and 2020. Sub-Saharan Africa will more than triple its base over the same period.

    China became the largest digital TV household nation in 2010, and will boast 460 million digital homes by end-2020 – or 27% of the global total – up by 225 million on 2013. India will add 118 million digital TV homes between 2013 and 2020. India will overtake the US to take second place in 2015.

    Brazil will take fourth place and Russia fifth by 2020 – both of which will more than double their digital TV totals. Watch out for Indonesia, which will leap to seventh place, by adding 42 million digital TV households.

    Polish HbbTV progress continues

    May 14, 2014 07.16 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    HbbTVPoland’s ZPR Media Group has added HbbTV signaling to the TV channels VOX Music TV, Polo TV and Fokus TV, broadcast from Eutelsat Hotbird 13 at 13 degrees East.

    Hybrid TV expert Pawel Tutka says that the HbbTV screen app screen shot from the music TV channel VOX Music TV is similar to HbbTV apps from Eska TV.

    He adds that the VOX Music TV app gives access to weather (VOD) and news supplied by the editorial at Super Express.

    ZPR Media Group is currently trying to secure carriage of VOX Music TV on digital cable networks.

    Tutka says that ZPR Media Group’s introduction of HbbTV on its channels indicates that it is treating HbbTV seriously as a platform to build interactive TV services.

    As a result, Eska TV, Polo TV and VOX Music TV differ significantly from other music channels available to Polish viewers.

    Subscriber growth stalls at nc+

    May 14, 2014 07.34 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    nc+-logo-redThe Polish DTH platform nc+ ended the first quarter with 2.2 million post-paid subscribers, a figure unchanged on the total three months earlier.

    ARPU for nc+ was PLN67.6 (€16.2), up from PLN65.7 in Q4 2013, while revenues in Q1 amounted to PLN532 million.

    TVN, which jointly owns nc+, had revenues of PLN352 million in Q1, up 2.5% year on year, boosted by a recovering TV ad market and strong results of its premium TV brokerage operation and non-linear content initiative.

    Adjusted EBITDA amounted to PLN87 million, up 2.2% year-on-year, and a net profit of PLN10 million contrasted with a loss of PLN46 million in Q1 2013.

    UPC maintains strong Hungarian position

    May 14, 2014 07.55 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    HungaryUPC remained the leading provider of subscription TV services in Hungary, irrespective of technology used, in March, with a market share 26.2%, according to the latest data published by the regulator NMHH.

    However, it was closely followed by Magyar Telekom (24.1%) and Digi (23%), while the pay-DTT service MinDig TV Extra claimed a market share of 3.6%.

    UPC was also the market leader in the wired sector (26.4%), followed by Magyar Telekom (21.6%) and Digi (19.4%), while in the wireless sector Digi was in first place (31.1%), followed by Magyar Telekom (29.7%), UPC Direct (25.7%) and MinDig TV Extra (11.8%).

    Interestingly, “other service provider” category, which Broadband TV News believes refers to the new DTH platform operated by the M70 Group, had a 1.8% share.

    Meanwhile, the total number of cable and IPTV subscriptions in Hungary in March stood at 2,019,406, of which over half (1,039,974) were digital.

    CME sale speculation “completely untrue”

    May 14, 2014 08.28 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    CMEThe joint CEOs of Central European Media Enterprises (CME) have dismissed reports that the company may be sold to the PPF Group.

    In a wide-ranging interview in the Czech publication HN, Michael del Nin said: “There are always a lot of speculations about the media market, probably more than in any other business. We do not comment on them, firstly, because there are an awful lot of them and it would only be a waste of time, and secondly because a number of them are simply complete nonsense. That said, the recent rumour you are referring to has been particularly persistent, so it might be worth addressing. The speculation you are mentioning is completely untrue. I can say that we are not conducting any negotiations for the sale of the company; we plan to be here for a long time”.

    Christoph Mainusch added: “Our strategy is to focus on and improve our broadcasting business, and once this assignment is completed, we want to further develop this company. We can then launch new channels or expand to new markets. Why should we sell TV Nova? This wouldn’t fit within this strategy at all”.

    Del Nin continued: “TV Nova is the heart of this company; it was its most profitable part for a long time and we hope that it will be again. I cannot imagine CME without TV Nova”.

    When discussing the sale of CME’s non-TV assets, del Nin said that Bontonfilm in the Czech Republic would be disposed of soon. Otherwise, most other sold assets will be in Romania.

    Regarding channels, Mainusch said: “Generally speaking, we continuously review our channel portfolio; there may be more of them, and there may be less of them. In regards to the Czech Republic, we are not planning to discontinue the broadcasting of any of our channels now. Nor are we planning to launch a new channel because, as I have said, we have to consolidate our company first of all. The channel portfolio remains as it is.”

    Commenting on Voyo, he added: “Voyo is a very good example why decentralization was necessary. Earlier, Voyo was managed centrally. Every country in which we operate is different and, hence, the digital landscape is different. Voyo is one of the main pillars of our digital strategy, but it is not the only pillar. This is why we have presented our so called ‘catch-up service’ Nova Plus in the Czech Republic, where audiences will have an opportunity to watch the programs they missed on television for a full week after their initial broadcast. We will also do something like this in other countries. It is turning out that the two concepts can work together; since its launch, we have not registered Nova Plus cannibalising Voyo in any marked way.”

    Regarding CME’s financial difficulties and the help it has received from Time Warner, Del Nin said: “The transaction we did was complicated, but extremely effective. We were able to do it in large part because of the support of Time Warner. To put it simply, we are refinancing our most expensive debt that required us to pay tens of millions of dollars in cash interest every year. We have replaced it with new debt, which Time Warner and other shareholders have provided to us and which is more expensive but relieves us of the need to pay interest in cash. If circumstances permit, it can be refinanced on better terms before it matures. To a considerable extent, this has resolved our problems with cash flows and should make it possible for us to generate positive cash flow next year. Under the terms of the transaction we undertook, Time Warner’s equity stake in CME has increased.”

    “VO is proud, through its TV Everywhere solution, to enable Boxer TV to fully embrace the dramatic changes in how people consume content and their need to be fully engaged in the TV experience,” said François Moreau de Saint Martin, CEO of Viaccess-Orca.
