    Sony launches LIV Sports online for World Cup

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 03 June 2014

    Sony Entertainment has introduced its new Indian digital sports service, LIV Sports, to provide live matches and on-demand video content throughout the forthcoming FIFA World Cup.


    "The idea was to create a premier digital sports entertainment destination where we will offer quality content which is mass inclusive and not designed to cater only to ardent sports fans. We have attempted to redefine the way sporting content is presented and consumed," said NP Singh, CEO, Multi Screen Media (MSM) – Sony Entertainment Television's operator in India.

    "With LIV Sports we will attempt to keep every cross section of our consumers actively engaged through high quality interactive sports content with informative data and analytics," he added.

    Features during the globe's premier football tournament include live matches with four different camera angles; an interactive timeline providing the ability to watch key moments in the match; live statistics, heat maps and analysis; a fantasy football league; and on-demand access to match highlights, best goals and team features.

    "With LIV Sports we are aiming to create a new category of 'Sport-ainment' or 'Sports Entertainment'. You can either watch the live match, with all the deep statistics overlaying the video, or you can just click a selfie in your team's jersey using the Jerseyfy Me application," said Nitesh Kripalani, executive vice president – new media, business development and digital/syndication at Sony Entertainment Network.

    "We have also brought back the digital avatar of the Player cards, combined with educating fans about the different athletes with [quiz] Pehchaan Kaun. The objective is to empower the sports fan with deep statistics on video; as well as engage with the fence sitters."

    LIV Sports is India's official mobile and internet broadcaster for the World Cup, which kicks off in Brazil on 12 June 2014. In addition to football, viewers will soon be able to watch NBA, UFC, tennis and cricket on LIV Sports.

    MojoCreative launches African, LATAM OTT video service

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 03 June 2014

    African and Latin American content is being given a digital home at WuraTV, the new over-the-top (OTT) video streaming platform from US company MojoCreative.


    The advertising-free service is available for US$4 a month for unlimited use online or via mobile devices. It delivers television and film titles likely to be of particular interest to the African and Latin American diaspora.

    "The main concept behind Wura is to give viewers better options, specifically cable TV customers who have to pay a fortune on channels they usually don't watch and don't even have access to watch content of culture," Michael Ojo, president and founder of MojoCreative told Human IPO.

    "I like to think of Wura as a complement to traditional TV."

    WuraTV has already attracted 3,700 users and 42 paid subscribers, and plans are reportedly afoot to integrate it into the iRokuTV Nollywood platform in certain locations to help spread its reach around the globe.

    "Disney XD's programming is focused on the core value of accomplishment while helping boys learn, discover and grow with confidence and most crucially, do all of this with healthy doses of laughter and fun," says Natasha Malhotra, general manager, Brand Media and Content, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia.

    Guido Zaballero, vice president and head of marketing, Cignal TV, added: "For the first time in the Philippines, Disney XD will be on the air in HD. With the variety of the content, we truly believe that a channel like Disney XD should be enjoyed in HD."

    Cignal will be previewing the channel to its 700,000 pre-paid subscribers during the month of June.

    Disney XD is also available in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.

    YuMe launches multiscreen advertising Reach Calculator

    Michelle Clancy
    | 03 June 2014

    Advertising specialist YuMe has launched an interactive Reach Calculator, based on US results of its multi-national research with Nielsen on multiscreen reach and brand impact.

    The tool computes unduplicated reach across TV, online, smartphone, tablet and connected TV, and serves as a directional tool for marketers to use while developing their multiscreen video plan.

    "We're responding to our clients' requests for more insight into why they should shift dollars from TV to digital and, more importantly, how much and the impact of doing so on brand metrics," said Ed Haslam, senior vice president of marketing at YuMe. "This is the first time we have built a tool based on research that media agencies can use in their offices to do multiscreen video planning."

    The study that spurred the calculator was comprised of two different studies – an online media survey and an in-person media lab. The results include findings for advertisers around US connected device ownership and how to more accurately plan reaching their target audience across digital video screens.

    "This research and accompanying Reach Calculator gives us a tangible resource to bring to the clients now," said David Klein, group planning director for Assembly. "I think we know the concept of adding a new media channel to our mix, but having the ability to break it out between the different channels and screens is important to us."

    The online multiscreen reach survey showed that the average household has 4.4 devices; and smartphones and tablets are nearly as popular as computers. Meanwhile, 87% of consumers use devices while the TV is on.

    The multi-device media lab portion, held at CBS' Television City, tested each respondent's experience while looking at a series of ad-powered comedy sketches on smartphone, tablet, computer and over-the-top (OTT) devices. Results showed two major findings: the biggest incremental gains in engagement were achieved when three or more devices were brought into the mix; and emerging OTT devices, such as Roku, continue to provide a positive halo effect

    NUVOtv adds to executive team

    Gabriel Miramar-Garcia
    | 03 June 2014

    NUVOtv, the English-language Latino network, and its parent company SíTV Media have today announced five new hires and two promotions that will strengthen its executive team as well as advertising sales, marketing, programming and human resources.

    Bill Hilary, the executive vice president of programming of the network, has been appointed to the newly-created position of president at SíTV Media. He'll oversee key operating areas at both NUVOtv and, pending the close of the acquisition announced in April, music network Fuse.

    "Our company continues to evolve, but our mission remains the same: to build a dynamic media company focused on a young Latino and multicultural audience," said CEO Michael Schwimmer. "Core to this mission is having a strong, diverse and experienced team in place that will help us to achieve our near- and long-term goals. With our acquisition of Fuse set to close in the coming weeks, we will be in great hands under Bill's leadership, supported by the new group of executives he has brought on board. This combination will go a long way in helping us grow across multiple areas of our business."

    Joining NUVOtv are Jason Miller as executive ad sales and integrated marketing; Jesus M Rodriguez as SVP of marketing; Diane Castro as VP of corporate communications; Kathryn Mitchell as head of scheduling and acquisitions; and Yolanda Enamorado as VP of human resources. Additionally, Lynnette Ramirez has been promoted from VP to SVP of programming and development.

    "It is a very exciting time for NUVOtv. We have a great opportunity to continue to grow the network and serve one of the most vibrant, influential and fastest growing demographics in America," Hilary said. "I look forward to this amazing opportunity and know that the creative energy between NUVOtv and Fuse senior management teams will result in building stronger brands and programming franchises."

    Bill Hilary joined NUVOtv as head of programming in 2013, and worked closely with Schwimmer and NUVOtv chief creative officer Jennifer Lopez to re-launch the network in July 2013 around a new programming strategy that showcases Latino entertainment across several genres.

    TV Azteca taps Level 3 for World Cup feed delivery

    Gabriel Miramar-Garcia
    | 03 June 2014

    Level 3 Communications will distribute the international feed of the 2014 FIFA World Cup to TV Azteca, a top broadcaster in Mexico.

    TV Azteca will use Level 3's broadcast-based Vyvx Solutions to provide diverse routes in the transmission of the tournament feed from various locations in Brazil to TV Azteca's teleport in Mexico City. Level 3 also will manage all encoding, decoding and switching equipment for TV Azteca.

    "Soccer is not a sport we take lightly in Mexico, and this particular competition is by far the biggest sporting event we broadcast, both in terms of number of viewers and the amount of technical expertise needed to deliver it to fans across our networks," said Pedro Carmona Ortiz, special events engineering director at TV Azteca. "We trust Level 3 — with their secure, global network and extensive technical experience transporting live feeds for large-scale events — to help us deliver an unparalleled tournament-watching experience."

    Vyvx Solutions are part of Level 3's video cloud services, designed to support content delivery from signal acquisition to delivery to viewers. Services include live Vyvx broadcast video acquisition, encoding and transcoding, global delivery via the Level 3 CDN, as well as self-service analytics and reporting.

    "We are thrilled TV Azteca took our proven track record of delivering secure, efficient, high quality transmissions for some of the most-watched global television events and programmes into account for this important competition," said Mark Taylor, vice president of media and IP services at Level 3. "Level 3's extensive experience and global network will provide a consistent, top-quality transmission to TV Azteca's viewers while the company enjoys the ease of working with one vendor."

    Viaplay adds personalisation engine for Nordic multiscreen TV

    Michelle Clancy
    | 03 June 2014

    Viaplay has chosen the ThinkAnalytics TV search and recommendations engine to power multi-language intelligent search and recommendations for its online pay-TV service in the Nordics.

    A cloud-based deployment, the ThinkAnalytics Recommendations Engine is now live on the Viaplay service in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.

    Viaplay chose ThinkAnalytics because of its multilingual capabilities, as well as the range of recommendations techniques and metadata enhancement capabilities. The Recommendations Engine is integrated with thePlatform's mpx video publishing system.

    "We realised early on that recommendations help us to showcase our vast library of premium content," said Rikard Steiber, CEO of Viaplay. "ThinkAnalytics' Recommendations Engine allows us to offer a great personalised experience by making it easy for users to find the content they love, whenever and wherever they want - and on the device of their choice."

    The Viaplay deployment uses a mix of advanced, personalised and non-personalised recommendations techniques – including 'content for you,' 'what's popular', category-based, related content and intelligent search - to help subscribers find content on a wide range of devices including PCs, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and games consoles.

    "By drawing on our metadata enhancement capabilities and extensive range of algorithmic techniques, Viaplay is now offering cloud-based recommendations that ensure subscribers extract the most value from their service," said Peter Docherty, founder and CTO at ThinkAnalytics. "This is an important enhancement in a region where sophisticated consumers expect their TV services to understand their taste and propose new content."

    Google to announce Android TV

    Michelle Clancy
    | 03 June 2014

    Google is planning to announce a next generation for its television plans, dubbed Android TV.


    According to GigaOm, the technology will be built into set-tops and smart TVs like the existing Google TV offerings, with access to variety of over-the-top services. But, two new evolutions will mark the launch: for one, Android TV will have significant gaming capability. And, it will also reportedly include a content discovery feature called Pano, which organises 'cards' that recommend specific content and allows users to browse movies, TV shows and other types of media.

    In addition to the company's bare-bones but very popular Chromecast streaming dongle, existing Google TV options are available from a variety of manufacturers, including the VIZIO Co-Star and some LG smart TVs.

    GigaOm said that the Android TV announcement could be made at the upcoming Google I/O, scheduled for 25 and 26 of June.

    YouTube crowdfunding, creator perks to be launched

    Michelle Clancy
    | 03 June 2014

    Google has revealed planned changes for YouTube, including mobile and discovery additions, and crowdsourcing integration.

    For one, it will launch a separate mobile app that includes popular creator features. It will also introduce crowdsourced captions and subtitles in 60+ languages; and will add a Kickstarter-like crowdfunding capability so that fans can fund their favourite creators on YouTube directly from the site itself.

    These features will join a few recent updates, including new comment management features, a way for artists to share in revenue from eligible cover song videos, and an ever-expanding Creator Academy.

    The changes are based on viewer feedback. "Twice a year in our global satisfaction survey, we ask you how we're doing on a range of topics," explained Matt Glotzbach, director of creator product management at YouTube. "Our most recent survey included a question about the top ways we could do a better job keeping you informed about what's happening at YouTube. Your biggest request? You want to hear about the new stuff we're working on ahead of time, so you can tell us if we're heading in the right direction. Well, your wish is our command."
