    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 20 May 2014

    Telemundo Internacional and Televisión Nacional de Chile (TVN) have announced an international co-production deal for the series Dueños del Paraíso (Owners of Paradise), adaptated from Pablo Illanes' novel.

    The series will be broadcast in the US and Chile by Telemundo and TVN respectively. Telemundo will be in charge of the international syndication of the production, which is expected to feature top in-front and behind-the-cameras talent from TVN and Telemundo. The deal was signed at the LA Screenings by Marcos Santana, president of Telemundo Internacional, and Mauro Valdés, executive director of TVN.

    Dueños del Paraíso will star Kate del Castillo, the acclaimed actress who is returning to TV after the success of La Reina del Sur, the highest-rated soap opera in Telemundo's history.

    "We are extremely proud of this historic co-production agreement with the company that has led scripted drama in Chile," said Santana. "This co-production will have a significant impact in the international markets, as both companies dedicate their best resources to this project."

    An original story by Chilean writer Pablo Illanes, Dueños del Paraíso will be filmed on location in Miami, New York and Chile, and will feature the special participation of top Chilean stars which TVN will cast through a national search.

    "This agreement manifests TVN's leadership, in particular in the area of scripted productions," said Valdés. "We have had a long-standing relationship with our partner Telemundo Internacional and this project will expand it into large scale audiovisual productions. This alliance introduces a major innovation in the Chilean television industry and will allow us to showcase to the international markets the great capacity of our production teams, the talent of our actors and the quality of our country's locations."

    M7 Group to acquire KabelKiosk from Eutelsat

    May 20, 2014 07.57 Europe/London By JÖRN KRIEGER AT ANGA COM 2014



    KabelKiosk ChoiceSatellite operator Eutelsat has sold its German direct-to-cable platform KabelKiosk to Luxembourg-based media company M7 Group.

    The deal of which financial details have not been disclosed is performed through M7A Group, an affiliate of M7 Group, trading under the name of M7 Deutschland, taking over Eutelsat visAvision, Eutelsat’s Cologne-based German subsidiary which operates the KabelKiosk platform of digital channels and interactive services for cable and IPTV networks in German-speaking Europe.

    The transaction includes a long-term agreement for the lease of multiple transponders at Eutelsat’s 9 degrees East orbital position. Eutelsat will also continue to provide uplink services for the KabelKiosk platform from its teleports in Italy and France. Eutelsat and M7 Deutschland have moreover agreed that they will establish a strategic partnership for connected TV, combining broadcast and on-demand video services.

    “Having built a strong video distribution platform in Germany, it is now time for a new shareholder to drive KabelKiosk forward as it embarks on a new chapter of expansion,” said Michel de Rosen, chairman and CEO of Eutelsat. “Following the recent launch by M7 of its new Hungarian pay-TV venture from our 9° East video neighbourhood, the transaction announced today strengthens our relationship with the M7 group of companies.”

    “I take this opportunity, on behalf of all at Eutelsat, to express our appreciation to the KabelKiosk team, led by Martina Rutenbeck and Alessandro Lanfranconi, for the energy and dedication they have applied to building a vibrant business that is well positioned to move ahead with its next phase of growth,” added de Rosen.

    Kees Färber, managing director of M7 Deutschland, said: “The acquisition of KabelKiosk is an excellent opportunity for us to enter the German market for TV platform operators. We are confident that KabelKiosk will further grow its existing cable business as well as achieve additional growth through the exciting new opportunities provided by the new IPTV and OTT delivery platforms.”

    Martina Rutenbeck, managing director of KabelKiosk, said: “By leveraging M7′s significant expertise in platform operations, we are well positioned to continue to expand our cable activity and, at the same time, to accelerate our diversification into IPTV/OTT service provision.”

    KabelKiosk generated approximately €25 million of revenues in Eutelsat’s 2012/13 financial year. The terms of the sale agreement remain confidential. Subject to regulatory approvals and other customary conditions, the transaction is expected to close in July 2014.

    M7 DeutschlandM7 Group operates several TV platforms for consumers and business customers. The company’s portfolio comprises CanalDigitaal and Online.nl in the Netherlands, TV Vlaanderen in Flanders, TéléSAT in French-speaking Belgium, AustriaSat and HD Austria in Austria, AustriaSat Magyarország in Hungary and CS Link and Skylink for the Czech and Slovak market. M7 Group’s DTH platforms reach a total of more than 3 million viewers.

    Since 2011, M7 Group has also been providing internet and telephony services to its customers in The Netherlands and Belgium. In addition, through its subsidiary Stream Group, M7 delivers enhanced interactive video, OTT and multiscreen services in Europe and Asia through its Solocoo platform.

    Speaker’s Corner: Why does Eutelsat sell its core German asset KabelKiosk?

    May 20, 2014 08.01 Europe/London By JÖRN KRIEGER AT ANGA COM 2014



    Kabelkiosk logoThe announcement surprised the industry right at the opening of cable, satellite and broadband trade fair ANGA COM (May 20-22, 2014) in Cologne: Eutelsat will sell its German direct-to-cable platform KabelKiosk to media company M7 Group.

    The successful B2B platform had been the only major foothold left for Eutelsat in Germany. In the 1990′s the operator of the Hot Bird satellite system at 13° East lost the battle for the German DTH market to arch rival SES and its Astra fleet at 19.2° East.

    KabelKiosk which emerged 10 years ago out of Fremdsprachenplattform, a delivery platform providing cable operators with foreign-language TV channels for ethnic minorities, now serves around 3.8 million cable and IPTV households in German-speaking Europe with free-to-air and pay-TV channels both in SD and HD quality and an HbbTV-based connected TV and video-on-demand (VOD) portal. More than 300 partners distribute the white label service on their networks.

    Eutelsat constantly increased both the channels and services offered by KabelKiosk. The most recent new product is the new IPTV platform to be launched at ANGA COM on May 20, 2014. The platform which targets city carriers and IPTV providers will contain around 150 TV channels, a time-shifting feature and a VOD service. Designed as an over-the-top (OTT) multiscreen solution, the platform not only reaches the TV set, but also mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

    In contrast to the classic KabelKiosk model, the new IPTV service will not rely on satellite distribution, but it will be delivered to its partners through IP-based broadband lines for direct inclusion in their networks. No satellite reception system has to be installed at the head-end.

    Broadband distribution instead of satellite has also been chosen by KabelKiosk’s new competitor BIQ Services operated by Media Broadcast which recently announced its first customer. Fixed-line broadband delivery offers several benefits compared to satellite, for example it’s easy scalable and fully bidirectional – an important feature as VOD portals and other interactive services become more popular.

    With its transition from solely providing linear TV channels via satellite to a full multimedia platform with IPTV, VOD, OTT and multiscreen services, KabelKiosk has gradually shifted away from Eutelsat’s core business. For M7 Group, however, KabelKiosk offers not only synergies with its TV platform operations in other countries, but also new business opportunities in the growing German IPTV and OTT market.

    Cubiware inks Icelandic deal

    May 20, 2014 08.23 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    Vodafone IcelandCubiware and Sofia Digital have signed a middleware licensing agreement with Vodafone Iceland, a “single-brand” partner network of Vodafone Group.

    The agreement licenses the operator to deploy CubiTV on Vodafone Iceland set-top boxes (STBs).

    The STB rollout includes Vodafone Iceland localisation and branding made with the use of CubiTV SDK for DVB-T deployment, with the option to offer an expanded range of CubiTV-enabled interactive OTT services in subsequent upgrades.

    Vodafone Iceland’s interests include a DVB-T service that reaches 99% of households in the country, along with an IPTV operation available to 88% of homes.

    Mika Kanerva, COO of Sofia Digital, said: “CubiTV delivers a state-of-the-art user experience, enjoys a reputation for reliable operation in large-scale deployments, and being NorDig compliant with Antenna Ready HD logo, it is ideal to run on Vodafone Iceland DVB-T STBs and network.

    “Just as important, CubiTV is flexible, which allows Vodafone Iceland to not only meet today’s needs but also put in place a technology platform that supports various OTT services, such as cloud PVR service implemented by Sofia Digital using CubiTV at DNA in Finland.” CubiTV enables operators to deploy specific features of their own choice whenever they feel that the time is right based on their own assessment of local market factors.”

    Maciej Grzonkowski, CTO of Cubiware, added: “We are extremely pleased that our CubiTV platform has been selected as the STB middleware for Vodafone Iceland.

    “This licensing agreement continues our strategy of extending our reach into new markets by providing a fast, attractive, and intuitive interface that not only enhances the viewing experience but also can be easily tailored to local tastes and requirements. The agreement also underscores the value of our close working relationships with local and regional resellers such as Sofia Digital.”

    Divitel and TNO launch first scalable Interactive UHD video

    May 20, 2014 10.51 Europe/London By by Robert Briel at ANGA COM 2014



    Dutch based Divitel and TNO have created a strategic business partnership.

    This is an innovative partnership whose first new Interactive UHD Video Technology – Tiled Streaming – is now on who at ANGA COM 2014 in Cologne.

    Video signals with extremely high resolution, such as four times and eight times the HD resolution (4k and 8k) for example, are mostly interesting because of the increased flexibility for content production, better image recognition and the possibility of interaction with video.

    TNO has developed new technologies for rendering, and interaction with, high-resolution video signals. This so-called ‘tiled streaming’ (the signal is split into ‘tiles’, as it were) makes it possible to convert video from one source, supplied in ultra-high resolution, to the right signal (adaption) for different sorts of devices, such as smartphones, tablets and connected TVs.

    The high quality of the video signal allows the end-user to zoom in on details while watching a video! The constantly increasing quality of video is leading to more and more opportunities for experiencing interactive television, and also to new forms of advertising. Divitel will help TNO with development, implementation and marketing.

    Paul Valk, business development manager at TNO: “The strength of TNO lies in developing – in this case – innovative and compelling media technologies. Divitel is a perfect match in this respect because – thanks to its many years of specific knowledge – it can help to develop, implement and market these technologies.”

    “Divitel’s contribution to the business partnership lies in its ability to accelerate the development of new, complex, compelling media technologies, to identify new earning models, to transform this knowledge into innovative solutions and to market them,” added Tuan Huynh, Chief Innovation Officer at Divitel.

    “We also regard the partnership with TNO as another way of managing the increased complexity and constant exponential growth of new media technologies. So our partnership endorses the Divitel vision of sharing effort and new ideas but also of considerably reducing the costs and risks of R&D, and the time involved in marketing innovative solutions.”

    The tiled streaming technology can be seen at the Divitel stand at ANGA COM 2014, Hall 10.2 / H 13.

    TeliaSonera picks Cisco for Finnish cable expansion

    May 20, 2014 11.25 Europe/London By Julian Clover



    Cisco has announced that service provider TeliaSonera has selected the Cisco Remote-PHY solution to expand its service and increase bandwidth across its entire cable footprint in Finland.

    TeliaSonera already has an installed base of Cisco Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS) based on the Cisco UBR 10k.

    The introduction of the Cisco Remote-PHY solution means TeliaSonera will be able to increase broadband service bandwidth for all subscribers, even those in sparsely populated areas, without extensive capital or operational expenditure.

    Sakari Kangasvieri, Cable Network Manager, TeliaSonera Finland Oyj, said:
    “In a competitive environment, the ability to offer high-speed services to all our subscribers and connect those who previously were unable to access premium broadband services is a key differentiator.” He added, “Through our work with Cisco, we are transforming our network to provide better services for our subscribers and address our operational and capital expenditure.”

    Patrick Gordin, Regional Sales Manager, Operators and Outsourcers, Cisco Systems Finland Oy, added: “Cable Service Providers across Europe are seeking ways to keep ahead of their customers’ bandwidth needs without incurring large capital or operational charges. Our innovative Remote-PHY solution is a key tool to help achieve these goals. TeliaSonera’s approach to its network will mean that it is able to further monetize its platform and expand in a sustainable way.”

    Built on Cisco’s industry leading CMTS product portfolio (including the Cisco UBR 10000), Cisco Remote-PHY is a part of company’s recently announced plan to achieve full virtualization of the cable access architecture.

    FITT report calls for UK TV tech collaboration

    May 20, 2014 11.52 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul, DTG Summit 2014, London



    Ed VaizeyA leaders’ group is needed to take the findings of the Future of Innovation in Television Technology (FITT) report forward.
    Otherwise, according to Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, its findings could go to waste.

    Speaking at the DTG Summit 2014, he added that he would be happy to play some role in the group, which will be launched this autumn. The FITT report is an 18-month collaborative industry project about which Vaizey said:

    “The FITT report helps to clarify a number of important issues, opportunities and challenges facing the UK television industry. We will take careful note of the specific recommendations for government and will work closely with the industry-led Next Generation TV Planning Programme.”

    The report covers new reviews of Consumer Trends, the Evolution of Devices and Applications, Computing for the Creative Industries, Data Management, and, Future Networks and Infrastructure. The Steering Group made 13 recommendations based on the evidence from this work. These include the establishment of a Leaders Assembly to guide a Next Generation TV Technology Planning Programme; a Technology Advocacy Programme for innovators to share newly-developed technologies and applications; and a cross industry working group to respond to the challenges of big data in television.

    Many of the recommendations were guided by consumer trend data and projections that showed that although viewing to the main television set remains stable, it is increasingly augmented by viewers choosing to watch on any device, any time both inside and outside of the home. The taskforce believes that these trends coupled with the increasing connectivity of devices, people and content creates massive business potential for UK media companies. However, consumer anxieties about privacy remain the biggest barrier to realising these ambitions, and this highlights the need for transparency from providers – potentially delivered via an industry-led review of self-regulation – and digital literacy programmes for consumers.

    Dr. David Docherty, Chairman of the FITT taskforce and of the DTG said in response to the report and recommendations:
    “The UK TV industry is an amazing success story, with an enviable heritage of innovating in television technology. But it’s facing unprecedented challenges to its ability to compete, let alone lead. The FITT report is testament to the resolve that exists within the industry to deliver innovation that consumers and viewers want and to keep the UK TV technology industry globally competitive.”

    There was also a response to the report from John Cresswell, CEO of Arqiva. He said: Arqiva welcomes the key points in the Future of Innovation in Television Technology Taskforce report. We firmly support its call-to-action to ensure long-term vibrancy and competitiveness of the UK TV market, championing broad consumer choice across TV platforms and the on-going role for free and pay TV. However, it’s clear that the longevity of TV relies on the Government providing certainty and clarity to the industry, so it can continue to invest and innovate. This includes the need for commitments around the availability of sufficient spectrum to ensure Freeview can continue to offer a diverse range of channels nationwide, as well as the necessary support for a future DVB-T2 switchover to allow more HD, and ultimately ultra-HD, programming.”

    “We also note with interest the report’s focus on some new technological developments – in particular the role of WiFi in enhancing connectivity to provide viewers with new services, as well as the future importance of innovation related to the Internet of Things. Indeed, as well as having a strong heritage in, and commitment to broadcasting, Arqiva is continuing to invest in both of these areas – we have recently announced our commitment to build and run a dedicated Internet of Things network, starting with 10 cities across the UK, using SIGFOX’s ultra-narrowband technology to be part of their global network.”

    Questioned on other areas, Vaizey said he was a strong supporter of DTT. Asked by BBC3, he said the decision about its future came entirely from the broadcaster and was “driven by bold thinking”. The BBC had compelling reasons and its decision had been thoroughly thought through.
