    Programmatic buying to reach fifth of US TV advertising

    Joseph O'Halloran
    | 15 May 2014

    Research from Strategy Analytics has confirmed the growing power of programmatic in media buying, with TV advertising likely to follow online towards more automated media buying.

    Indeed the report Programmatic Buying: Is This The Future of Television Advertising makes the bold prediction that the process of buying and selling TV advertising is poised for a significant transformation that programmatic buying will account for 20% of US television advertising dollars by 2018.

    The report also found that television advertising processes have been fairly static for decades but will begin to change over the coming years as various stakeholders in the ecosystem use advanced data analytics and tools to make more informed buying decisions and improve operational efficiencies and ultimately automate media buying workflows.

    One area in which programmatic has made major inroads is in online video and Strategy Analytics notes that the process has been introduced in a number of television services, notably by Cox Media in partnership with clypd, a technology platform, as well as Sky TV's Adsmart platform in the UK.

    "There are challenges ahead, notably in industry education, technological limitations and control over pricing," commented report's author and Strategy Analytics associate analyst Michael Goodman. "But we believe that the benefits of programmatic buying are beginning to outweigh perceived obstacles to its wider adoption in television. Initially, programmatic buying has made inroads into addressable advertising, local advertising, and TV everywhere/OTT TV. Over the coming months we expect it to expand into the scatter and spot markets, and from 2015 we will be looking out for significant moves into the upfront market."

    Netflix UK surges as American cord-cutters gorge on data

    Joseph O'Halloran
    | 15 May 2014

    The growing influence of cord-cutting has been revealed in the latest Sandvine bi-annual Internet traffic trends report that found that such people are now dominating network usage.

    Specifically, the Global Internet Phenomena Report 1H2014 — based on data from a selection of Sandvine's 250-plus communications service provider (CSP) customers spanning North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Caribbean and Latin America and Asia-Pacific — found that North American cord-cutters consume on average 212 Bytes a month, more than seven times that amount of a typical subscriber.

    At the heart of this consumption was the huge trend towards online video Sandvine calculates now accounts for the majority (54%) of total monthly network traffic and where people view the equivalent of 100 hours of video each month.

    Looking at regions of particular note in online video, Sandvine found that in the United Kingdom and Ireland, the Netflix over-the-top (OTT) service is now the second largest source of traffic during the peak evening hours, accounting for over 17.8% of downstream fixed access traffic. Meanwhile in North America, the availability of high bitrate Super HD content to all Netflix subscribers in North America increased the OTT service's peak downstream traffic share from 31.6% to 34.2%. Amazon Instant Video was also found to continue to gain share, but still only accounted for 1.9% of downstream traffic.

    In the mobile sector, Sandvine believes that during the forthcoming football World Cup, live streaming of matches is predicted to account for over 40% of network traffic on some Latin American mobile networks.

    Commenting on the survey results and trends revealed, Sandvine president and CEO Dave Caputo said: "Just over two years after its launch, Netflix has become the second largest driver of traffic on fixed access networks in the UK and Ireland ...This rapid ascent underscores how important it is that operators have business intelligence solutions in place to accurately measure and monitor the impact that over-the-top services have on their networks."

    Connected devices for the TV outstrip PCs for online video

    Michelle Clancy
    | 15 May 2014

    After years of PCs being the dominant way that viewers access online video, it turns out that the chickens are coming home to roost: TVs are actually outpacing computers as the key platform.

    Parks Associates, in its 360 View: Entertainment Services in US Broadband Households report, found that a full 81% of US broadband households still choose the TV set for the majority of their video consumption, while 60% watch content on a computer. 31% said they watch video on a smartphone, and 28% watch on a tablet. The PC was the only platform to show any significant decline in video viewing in the past year.

    The firm found that in the first quarter of 2014, US broadband households watched roughly three hours of online video per week on each platform — however, the amount of online video consumed on a TV is increasing, up from 2.3 hours per week in the first quarter of 2013. Meanwhile, online video viewing on a PC is on a steady decline.

    "The amount of all video consumed on PCs has declined, dropping from over eight hours per week in 2013 to 6.2 hours per week now," said Brett Sappington, director of research for Parks Associates. "Ultimately, consumers can more easily access online video options on a television than ever before."

    TV everywhere and a range of consumer-friendly set-compatible devices for bringing online video to the big living room screen.

    "In addition to smart TVs, Blu-ray players and game consoles, consumers are also buying streaming media players and devices such as Google's Chromecast," Sappington added. "Pay-TV providers are making a strong push to extend TV everywhere to a variety of devices. These trends are converging to displace computer-based video consumption."

    Turkcell blow for Cukurova

    May 15, 2014 06.56 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    TurkcellThe UK’s Privy Council has dismissed an appeal by the Cukurova Group in its dispute over the ownership of Turkcell.

    In the background statement on its ruling, the Council says that Turkcell is currently the largest mobile operator in Turkey, with 51% of shares in it owned by a Turkish company named Turkcell Holding.

    However, at the relevant time, Cukurova owned 52.91%, with the remaining 47.09% held by Sonera Holding.

    In March 2005 the two parties entered into a letter agreement regarding the purchase by Sonera of Cukurova’s entire stake in the company.

    However, two months later Cukurova publicly announced it would not be selling the shares to Sonera.

    Sonera commenced legal action and in September 2011 was awarded $932 million in damages by an arbitration Tribunal.

    The Privy Council, which is involved in the case as Cukurova is registered in the British Virgin Islands, ruled that Cukurova is bound by the terms of the letter agreement, including the terms of the arbitration clause.

    Cukurova has also been involved in a dispute with Russia’s Alfa Group over the control of Turkcell, which besides being a mobile operator has interests in Turkey’s TV industry.

    TVP rethinks documentary channel

    May 15, 2014 07.16 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    tvp-flagsThe Polish public broadcaster TVP has decided against launching a new documentary channel named TVP Dokument at the end of August this year.

    Instead, it will increase the number of documentaries it offers on two other thematic channels – TVP Kultura and TVP Historia – it already operates.

    In a statement, TVP adds that these two channels are already available to over 99% of Poles, whereas TVP Dokument would have only been distributed by certain cable and DTH operators.

    TVP also points out that it produced more documentaries in 2013 and Q1 this year ¬– 56 – than all other media outlets in Poland combined.

    Furthermore, its flagship channels TVP1 and TVP2 transmitted over 900 first-run documentaries, equivalent to over 1,000 hours of airtime, in 2013, with its other channels also offering a large number – 40% of its total airtime, in the case of TVP Historia.

    Significantly, TVP says that the launch of a documentary channel has been put back rather than ruled out.

    Its appearance will depend on whether or not a slot can be found for it on Poland’s final DTT multiplex.

    CTC Media NewThe Russian commercial broadcaster CTC Media is in talks to buy Caramba Media, whose interests include several information and entertainment portals and the internet TV channel CarambaTV.

    Quoting several sources, ITAR-TASS and local media report that negotiations are taking place and CTC Media is considering the possibility of integrating CarambaTV into Peretz, one of its thematic channels.

    However, it adds that despite due diligence having taken place, the two parties are still far from reaching an agreement.

    Netia grows TV business

    May 15, 2014 08.00 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    netia-logoPoland’s leading alternative telco Netia ended the first quarter with 127,247 TV subscribers, 39% more than a year and 6% up on the total at the end of 2013.

    However, its broadband customer base of 837,413 as of the end of Q1 was 3% down on a year earlier and 1% lower than at the end of 2013.

    This, says Netia, was down to slow market growth and tougher price competition, including cable operators offering multiplay bundles.

    The company also says it continued to expand its NGA standard network in Q1, passing an additional 7,000 homes.

    The network allows for the provision of a number of services, including IPTV and streaming TV.

    Its NGA networks in total covered 1,288,000 households as of the end of March.

    Netia’s revenues in Q1 amounted to PLN434.4 million (€ 103.7 million), down 12% year-on-year.

    EBITDA was PLN126 million (-9%) and net profit PLN11 million (PLN13.1 million a year earlier).

    Netia’s plans to launch services on the former Aster’s cable network in Warsaw and Kraków are well advanced.

    Netia acquired the networks without customers from UPC Polska and a commercial debut is expected in Q2.

    Video viewership declining on PCs
