    DirecTV ready for World Cup mobile broadcast

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 05 June 2014

    DirecTV's app to watch live streaming of the World Cup is now available for football fans in Latin America. The direct-to-home (DTH) platform is focusing on second screens and broadcasting the 64 matches from a multi-camera perspective.

    Just a few days before kick-off, the pay-TV operator has launched the free app for tablets and smartphones, both iOS and Android. Customers from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela will be able to watch the matches in HD from their mobile screens and access statistics, calendars, news and integrated social networks.

    The app gives access to six different cameras: the official signal, the tactical camera, two from two different players and one for each bench. Moreover, match highlights will be available on-demand.

    In order to have access to the extra content customers need to register with the MiDirecTV service.

    The mobile broadcast will be completed with streaming for computers through directvplay.com.

    DirecTV says it is ready for the sporting event of the year, offering wide coverage through its regular pay-TV satellite platform and also via streaming for mobile screens. From 12 June, it will be all about football and the latest broadcasting technologies.

    Hungarian ad tax protest grows

    June 6, 2014 07.56 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    Over 70 Hungarian commercial media outlets have held a 15-minute blackout to protest against the government’s plans to introduce a new tax on advertising.

    Quoted by WSJ, Zsolt Urban, president of the Hungarian Advertising Association (MRSZ), said “The detrimental effects of the tax is unfathomable. I am not saying that because of dramatic impact but because I think the government is not yet aware of that.”

    He added: “The advertising sector is fighting for its life. Furthermore, this tax undermines the Hungarian media business and the anticipated fiscal benefit is dwarfed by its negative impact on the economy.”

    The proposed new tax is expected to bring in some HUF7 billion (€23 million), with the national commercial TV station RTL Klub contributing around half that amount.

    Cord-cutting intentions remain stable in US

    June 6, 2014 08.00 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent


    Despite the fact that US incumbent pay-TV operators enjoyed a small net subscriber gain in Q1 2014 – a reversal of recent quarterly trends – the reality is that today’s pay-TV subscribers are just as inclined to cancel their service today as they have been since 2011.

    Today, 15% of adult broadband users that subscribe to a legacy cable, satellite, or telco pay-TV service are to varying degrees likely to cancel their service in the next six months. This is virtually unchanged during the last four years, despite the growing use of alternate video sources and the increasing cost of legacy pay-TV services.



    “TDG has been researching the ‘cord cutting’ phenomenon for more than six years, thus giving us a unique historical perspective on the subject,” noted Michael Greeson, TDG president and director of research.

    TDG attributes recent gains to seasonal additions, intense promotional efforts and special offers, and the continued absence of a full-fledged OTT competitor.

    Regarding the continuing absence of a legitimate OTT TV competitor, Greeson points to several recent examples. “Intel’s OnCue solution was essentially pawned off to Verizon, which is rumored to have lost interest in launching its own OTT TV service (Source: Reuters). Google fell flat with its initial OTT TV offering. Sony has verbally capitulated, and other outsiders like Apple have yet to make a serious move. This, in turn, has given incumbents the opportunity to ramp up on-demand and ‘TV Everywhere’ offerings. A few incumbents such as DirecTV and DISH have publicly expressed an interest in launching their own OTT TV services. Funny that the new boss is looking more like the old boss as incumbents emerge as major movers in the OTT video space.”

    While new media powerhouses including Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft have been unable to build out a true pay-TV alternative, by 2020 the pay-TV landscape will look very different than it does today, with these four companies accounting for a significant and growing slice of daily video viewing.

    Bott’s most recent role was as CFO of BBC Worldwide North America, since 2007. In 2013 he also took on financial responsibility for BBC Worldwide Global Advertising Sales. He joined BBC Worldwide in 1998 and held a number of roles in BBC Worldwide, first in London, before moving to New York.

    TV Everywhere usage explodes in the US

    June 6, 2014 08.22 Europe/London By Robert Briel



    ADI_Chart_TV_EveryWhere_Authenticated_video_growth _by_share_of_access_typeTV Everywhere viewing grew 246% in the US in past year, according to the Adobe Digital Index (ADI).

    One of the key findings from Adobe’s US Digital Video Benchmark report for the first quarter of 2014 is that year-over-year growth for TV Everywhere (246%), outpacing online video start growth across all devices. The number of unique visitors per month for TV Everywhere is up 157% YoY and 49% quarter-over-quarter (QoQ) across all access points, according to ADI.

    OTT devices such as new Xbox One and PS4 gaming consoles and OTT access points (Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast) are likely drivers of growth. These devices have seen the largest uptick in video starts (123%). ADI also reports a whopping 539% share growth of TV Everywhere authenticated video from gaming consoles and OTT. Smartphone video starts grew at 48%, but tablet viewing grew only 16%.

    “More and more, the notion of having ‘a television’ is becoming an archaic concept,” said Tamara Gaffney, principal analyst with ADI.

    “That thing hanging on your wall or standing in your corner is just a really big screen. Accessing content is no longer a matter of holding one controller. Between the new holiday gaming console gifts, new Apple TV and Roku add-ons, larger screen smartphones, and proliferation of tablets, online television viewing has never been more accessible.”
