    AT&T revises guidance up for U-verse

    Michelle Clancy
    | 04 June 2014

    AT&T has reported continued progress in the second full year of its Project VIP network investment plan, saying that it expects bundling of U-verse TV and broadband to be solid even with second-quarter seasonality and fewer migrations from DSL.


    "Growing consumer preference for buying broadband and pay-TV services bundled together reinforces the strategic rationale of AT&T's proposed acquisition of DIRECTV," the company said.

    It said that wireline margins continue under pressure, reflecting content cost increases, fibre expansion and high-speed broadband subscriber growth.

    Based on all of these trends, the company raised its full-year 2014 guidance for revenue growth to be in the 5% range and reaffirmed its full-year 2014 guidance for stable consolidated margins, adjusted earnings per share growth at the low-end of the mid-single digit range, capital expenditures in the $21 billion range and free cash flow in the $11 billion range.

    | 04 June 2014

    Cablevision Systems has added two cable networks to its Optimum TV line-up, including Magic Johnson's ASPiRE for African-Americans and their families. With the launch, Cablevision is the only provider of ASPiRE within its New York, Connecticut and New Jersey footprint.


    It is also adding the inspirational channel UP.

    The launch will be supported with a high profile, four-week marketing campaign featuring Magic Johnson, with transit advertising on Long Island Railroad, Metro North trains and New York City subways, custom cross-channel spots, social media, email blasts and a radio partnership with local New York radio stations WBLS-FM and K-LOVE.

    UP is a 24-hour television network that provides "fresh, contemporary and uplifting" family-friendly entertainment, including original movies, reality shows, series and music with positive messages. It recently announced that it will premiere 30 new original and premiere movies and four series for the second half of 2014 and 2015. ASPiRE meanwhile has debuted four original series that celebrate the achievements of African-Americans. It also offers a mix of movies, music, sports and lifestyle programming, talk shows, documentaries and sitcoms.

    "We are pleased to announce the additions of UP and ASPiRE, two high quality, family-friendly networks that further enhance the diversity and value of our Optimum TV line-up," said Bradley Feldman, senior vice president of product management at Cablevision. "Additionally, as the only provider of ASPiRE within the Cablevision service area, our customers will have the benefit of being the first in their neighbourhoods with access to ASPiRE's unique and uplifting entertainment that focuses on celebrating the African-American culture."

    UK entertainment and media market worth £64BN by 2018

    Joseph O'Halloran
    | 04 June 2014

    The 15th edition of PwC's Global Entertainment and Media Outlook has painted a very a rosy picture for the UK's creative industries.

    According to PwC's report, the UK entertainment and media (E&M) market is expected to grow by 3.1% compounded annually (CAGR) from 2013 to 2018 to a value of £64 billion in 2018.

    Total E&M spend on digital (excluding spend on Internet access) is forecast to grow at a 10.9% compound annual rate between 2013 and 2018 and account for 34% of the UK's entertainment and media spending growth – more than one in every three pounds. In 2013, the UK had the second largest E&M market in EMEA at £58.6 billion, behind Germany, and it will maintain this position to 2018. The fastest growing areas will be Internet advertising, Internet access, out of home advertising, video games and TV advertising.

    The report found that TV advertising in the UK was worth £3.7 billon in 2013 with revenues forecast to grow by a compound annual growth rate of 3.5% to reach £4.3 billion in 2018.

    Video Internet advertising was revealed as the fastest growing of the sector, with revenue nearly tripling between 2013 and 2018, to reach an expected £717 million, a compound annual growth rate of 23.9%. But this will still only make it the fifth-largest segment of Internet advertising, with just 7% of total revenue.

    Commenting on the findings, Phil Stokes, entertainment and media lead partner at PwC, said: "The entertainment and media industry is at the forefront of the digital revolution, because so many of its products and services can already be delivered in digital form. It may not be long before digital revenues from print, film, publishing and music overtake physical revenues in some markets. Media companies don't need a digital strategy anymore; they need a business strategy, and a business model, which is fit for the digital age."

    Mediaset, Publiespaña launch interactive TV app

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 04 June 2014
    Spain's Mediaset and Integración Transmedia, a subsidiary of Publiespaña, have launched MIOtv, a mobile app through which the viewers can interact live with content and adverts on Mediaset's platforms - both traditional and online TV.


    Currently only available for Android, but launching on AppStore soon, the app was co-designed by Taptap Networks and aims to increase the impact of adverts while improving the television experience for viewers.

    The app offers access to additional live information and videos about most of the shows broadcast on Mediaset's channels. It also connects viewers with social networks - which are integrated in MIOtv - and comments published by other viewers about various programmes.

    The shows and campaigns available for MIOtv will be tagged so the app will recognise the audio and video played and will redirect the viewer to the channels' microsites or other spaces with extra content.

    The app is paying special attention to World Cup-related content, for which ten sites with information about the event have been designed.

    The most successful shows from Telecinco and Cuatro - such as Mujeres y Hombres y Viceversa, Deportes Cuatro and Sálvame Diario - will also interact with viewers through MIOtv.

    The final goal of the second-screen app is to explore new commercial routes for advertisers. Interactive campaigns, multimedia projects, interactive product placement and mobile ads are among the possibilities offered to advertising companies. The app aims to increase audience engagement and segment attention in specific target groups.

    Booming EST breaks $1BN barrier

    Editor
    | 04 June 2014

    In a stark indication of the transition from physical to digital media, research from NPD has found that the electronic sell-through (EST) TV and movie market has grown since 2012 to more than $1 billion.

    The EST: Analysis and Perspective report showed that fundamentally the EST market is getting a boost as new multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD) and digital retailers join the market and new titles get early release windows. EST sales now represent almost 14% of the 2013 physical and digital home video purchases, with EST film transactions alone growing 68% year-on-year in Q1 2014, accounting for a tenth of all physical and digital movie purchases. Yet despite the improved growth of EST movies, NPD noted that EST TV show unit volume is still a much more significant part of the total EST market.

    "Much of the growth in EST is being driven by new digital buyers being drawn into the market," explained Mark Kirstein, president of entertainment for The NPD Group. "Most of the 11 million EST consumers are purchasing digital transactions in addition to physical DVDs and Blu-ray discs; only a small percentage exclusively purchase digital. Comcast joined Verizon as the second major MVPD to offer EST and we expect more to join the EST market moving forward ... EST will become an important complement to video-on-demand (VOD), TV everywhere and traditional pay-TV services, as it drives incremental revenue and contributes to subscriber retention."

    Ecuador's pay-TV breaks one million subs barrier

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 04 June 2014

    Although it's a small market, Ecuador's pay-TV sector is the fastest growing one in Latin America. By increasing 10.2% during Q1 2014, the country now has over one million subscribers, meaning around 25% of the population has pay-TV.


    According to figures published by Supertel, the country's telecom public regulator, DirecTV clearly tops the market with a 36% of share and 370,000 direct-to-home (DTH) customers. CNT TV with 13% and TV Cable with 8% of the market complete the top three.

    The market is divided between DTH and cable networks, with satellite coming a few points ahead. In addition, 240,000 subscriptions are for pre-paid services.

    Pay-TV penetration has gradually increased since ten years ago, when only 5.8% of Ecuadorians had a cable subscription. Penetration has rocketed, growing from 7% in 2009 to 10% in 2010, 11% in 2011, 16% in 2012 and 23% by the end of 2013.

    The estimated number of users is over 3.5 million, mostly concentrated in the richest areas of the country. The penetration rate drops in the poorest areas, such as Cotopaxi, where only 6% of the 440,000 inhabitants are covered by pay-TV

    Chile's FTA losses increase 30-fold

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 04 June 2014

    Chile's main free-to-air (FTA) networks have seen their profits fall by nearly $5 million during Q1 2014.

    Compared to last year, the recorded losses have increased 30-fold, causing alarm bells to ring.

    According to figures from the country's telecoms agency Anatel, Mega has seen the biggest fall at $2.3 million since the year started, although, according to the company, this is due to increased costs increasing and currency fluctuations.

    Canal 13 closed Q1 with $3.2 million profits a year ago, but by the end of March 2014, the network had lost over $1.5 million. According to Anatel, investment in schedule diversification has burdened the channel's growth, although increased expenses and currency fluctuations are also behind the fall.

    La Red (down $0.9 million), UCV TV (down $130,000), and TVN (down $60,000) are also contributing to the overall fall in profits.

    CHV has not reported its quarterly results yet, although in 2013 it reported a $6.5 million fall, so is expected to report another loss.

    LG hits 1MN WebOS Smart+ TV sales

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 04 June 2014

    Sales of LG Electronics' WebOS-enabled Smart+ TVs have passed the one million mark since their launch in March, the South Korean company says.

    LG predicts sales will reach ten million units by the first half of 2015.

    "Reaching the one million mark in just three months is a significant achievement in the TV industry," said In-kyu Lee, head and senior VP, TV division, LG Home Entertainment.

    "Rather than continuing to add more and more functions into our smart TVs that few people will ever use, we've decided to focus on simplicity with our 2014 Smart+ TVs with WebOS. Consumers seem to share our view that this is the right direction for the evolution of smart TVs going forward."

    The company says its Smart+ TV models will be available in over 150 markets worldwide by the end of June 2014

    BeIN Sports secures global rights for Ligue 1 football

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 04 June 2014

    Al Jazeera owned pay-TV network BeIN Sports has renewed its partnership with the LFP for the international media rights to Ligue 1 until 2024.

    The deal, which covers coverage of six seasons of French football's premier league from 2018-2019 until 2023-2024, will cost the Qatar-based broadcaster a guaranteed annual fee of €80 million – up from the €32.5 million it currently pays the LFP each year. Any revenues generated above this amount will be split equally between the league and BeIN Sports.

    The money will "give clubs security and visibility in their financial plan", according to LFP president Frédéric Thiriez, who added that the raised profile of Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco had helped cement the deal.

    In April, the domestic broadcasting rights to Ligue 1 from 2016-20 deals were sold to Canal + and BeIN Sport for a total of €726.5 million. In addition, €22 million was secured by the LFP for second-tier Ligue 2 rights
