    Connected home devices: the future

    June 11, 2014 11.54 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul, Connected TV World Summit 2014, London



    France 24 on connected TVOTT TV device ownership recently passed the important landmark of 1 billion, according to David Watkins, service director, connected home devices, Strategy Analytics.

    Speaking in a presentation entitled The future of devices at the Connected TV World Summit 2014, he added that the total will rise to 1.8 billion in 2017, with smart TVs becoming the biggest category in terms of sales, with games consoles also being significant and pay-TV operators embracing OTT.

    Looking a Western Europe, TV displays will emerge as the primary OTT device, followed by games consoles, STB/DVR, BD Player and Digital Media Adapter, by 2017.

    In his concluding remarks, Watkins said that the battle for control of the main TV screen is hot but there is no clear winner and that future ecosystem market leaders must adopt strategies that embrace all four TV screens.

    June 11, 2014 15.53 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul, Connected TV World Summit 2014, London



    Although OTT market is now very crowded in Germany, its estimated value is only around €55 million, according to Alice Mascia, VP strategy, Sky Deutschland.

    Speaking in a presentation entitled Using online SVOD to grow the pay-TV market, she charted the company’s four-year journey with TV everywhere, from the first iPad app or live sports in June 2010 to series straight after US premiere via technical and user experience innovations.

    Mascia said that landmarks in the journey included Sky Atlantic, which was launched on all platforms in May 2012, to the launch of Bundesliga on 3/4G in July 2013.

    She also said that Sky Go is now the best OTT service in Germany and Austria. Its annualised churn rate in Q1 this year was only 10.9% and the quarterly one 8.8%.

    Mascia also spoke about Snap by Sky, which is the first OTT product made available for non-subscribers.

    It is offered for €4.90 as an add-on for pay-TV enthusiasts and is the cheapest OTT product in the German and Austrian markets. The main (core) product is available for €9.90.

    mBond™ – “licence to thrill” IPTV service providers

    Coventry, UK – 13 June 2014


    Genesis Technical Systems to showcase solutions to tackle the rising demand for IPTV at CommunicAsia 2014 following operator sign off on mBond trial to deliver IPTV services over copper.

    Communications Service Providers looking for a new and exciting backhaul infrastructure solution – needed urgently to cope with rising demand for IPTV across Asia - have a unique new option thanks to UK based Genesis Technical Systems. Genesis, through its unique bonded copper solution, mBond™ is now able to support the strains placed on bandwidth allowance by IPTV amongst other internet applications.

    Industry forecasts show that IPTV continues to be one of the areas of major growth. A recent industry report from Digital TV World predicts that globally IPTV revenues will climb to $26.1 billion in 2020, up from $16 billion in 2013. Asia figures signal this strongly, as the region is consuming more and more bandwidth for IPTV alone exemplified by 2013 Q4 figures published by Point Topic. Point Topic’s report shows that Asia has experienced one of the largest annual increases geographically, with East Asia’s number of IPTV subscribers undergoing a 24% annual increase, and the rest of Asia increasing even more rapidly at 29%.

    Genesis Technical Systems will address these bandwidth issues at CommunicAsia, where its team of industry experts will showcase how its bonded copper solution, mBond can support the market during this integral period of growth throughout Asia.

    mBond, Genesis’s unique bonding solution, can be deployed in areas of Asia where fibre roll-out is problematic, whilst still providing fibre-like speeds. During recent Asia-based trials mBond achieved successful delivery of 100 Mb/s over four pairs consistently, meaning that operators who install the solution can provide converged IPTV and internet services over their existing copper infrastructure to an SME (small and medium sized enterprise) or SOHO (small or home office). Previously mBond has demonstrated an ability to deliver over 150 Mb/s over 12 pairs at distances of 1.5km – demonstrating that the solution can service larger multi-national corporations that utilise high bandwidth applications such as video-conferencing as well – demonstrating its versatile capabilities.

    Nigel Hall, CEO, at Genesis, commented: “Parts of Asia are markets that thrive on using a largely copper-based infrastructure, making them key places for us to focus on when considering how mBond can be utilised; we are excited by the prospects here, and can’t wait to discuss the demands of IPTV head-on during this year’s CommunicAsia show, and how we can solve the bandwidth bottleneck for operators!”

    mBond, Genesis Technical System’s unique superfast bonding solution will be at the forefront of Genesis Technical System’s activity at CommunicAsia in Singapore (17-20 June 2014). Be sure to visit the Genesis stand BQ3-08 to find out more about mBond and to also secure a free pre-publication copy of the new Genesis whitepaper that considers small cell backhaul options for fixed and integrated network operators.

    StarHub commences production of PBS content

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 13 June 2014

    Singapore pay-TV operator StarHub is starting production on its pioneer batch of ten public service broadcast (PBS) proposals, expected to air from January 2015.

    Finding a home on StarHub channels E City and SuperSports Arena, viewers can expect entertainment and infotainment, children's TV and variety shows as part of the content funded by the Media Development Authority's (MDA) Public Service Broadcast Contestable Funds Scheme (PCFS).

    A StarHub panel selected the ten from a total of 182 proposals from production houses, all containing creative storylines, as well as promoting social values, the Singaporean identity, culture and heritage, and enhancing racial and religious harmony.

    "Through this commissioning exercise, we have seen many proposals celebrating national pride and leveraging on the Singaporean way of life to weave the local culture into the concepts. This helps to make the content more relatable to the local audience," said Lee Soo Hui, head of Media Business Unit, StarHub.

    Dorothy Lai, director (Public Service Broadcast), Media Development Authority, added: "The partnership with StarHub allows us to offer to Singaporeans an additional platform to enjoy PSB programmes. The selected proposals show a lot of promise and it is heartening to see more fresh and innovative programme concepts coming from Singapore's production houses.

    "MDA will continue to work with more platform partners to bring high quality and engaging content to local audiences."

    RS protects World Cup pay-TV rights as legal action concludes

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 13 June 2014

    RS International will retain its exclusive Thai broadcast rights to the FIFA World Cup 2014 following a court ruling against the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC).

    The Supreme Administrative Court also ruled that 22 matches – including the semi finals and final – will be available on free-to-air Channel 7 and digital TV channel 8, as agreed previously by RS International.

    Thai pay-TV operator True Visions has also this week reached agreement with RS International to broadcast all 64 matches of the World Cup finals.

    RS acquired the World Cup broadcasting rights in September 2005, well before the NBTC introduced the 'must carry' rule in January 2013. Under the rule, seven major sports events including the Southeast Asian Games, Asian Games, Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup must be shown on free-to-air TV as well as on pay-TV platforms.

    RS filed a lawsuit against the NBTC in early April complaining the 'must carry' rule to broadcast all World Cup football games on free-to-air TV channels is unfair and unlawful.

    NBTC is now reportedly proposing it use THB427 million (US$13.16 million) from the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Research Development Fund for the Public Interest (BTFP) to pay RS for the right to broadcast all 64 World Cup matches on free-to-air TV. This initiative is, the regulator says, in line with the National Council for Peace and Order's (NCPO) policy to 'return happiness to the public'

    Egyptian FA seeks World Cup TV deal with beIN Sports

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 13 June 2014

    The Egyptian Football Association says it is hopeful that ongoing negotiations with Qatar's beIN Sports will lead to FIFA World Cup 2014 matches being aired on national television in Egypt.

    beIn Sports has the exclusive broadcast rights in the Middle East and North Africa for football's premier tournament, which kicked off in Brazil on 12 June.

    "We expect the broadcasting deal for the 2014 World Cup games on Egypt's national TV to be reached soon," Egyptian Football Association spokesman Azmi Megahed is quoted as saying on Ahram Online.

    "Broadcasting the games will be a present from President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi for the Egyptian people," he added.

    The Egyptian national team failed to make it to Brazil after losing to Ghana in the final qualifiers.

    Brazil's Globosat test-drives World Cup in 4K

    Michelle Clancy
    | 13 June 2014

    Brazil's Globosat is enabling a live UltraHD satellite broadcast feed of the 2014 World Cup in collaboration with Broadcom and Elemental.

    The special live broadcast of the final three matches of the World Cup is being made available to selected subscribers and pay-TV operators in Brazil, to test the demand for 4KTV.

    The broadcast is the first to deliver UltraHD display resolution speeds of 60 frames per second, which provides twice the speeds of current displays, the company said. It also includes a 10-bit Rec 2020 colour standard.

    "Globosat leads the Brazilian pay-TV segment with high quality programming, including live action sporting events, and we are excited to deliver a live UltraHD broadcast of the World Cup games," said Roberto Primo, CTO of Globosat. "Broadcasting the World Cup in 4K resolution is an important part of our effort to contribute to the evolution of the TV viewing experience in Brazil. Partnering with pay-TV operators that share this goal also allows us to deliver UltraHD to an even wider viewer audience in the future."

    Added Keith Wymbs, CMO for Elemental Technologies: "We are proud to support Globosat and to work with Broadcom in supporting the World Cup with a whole new level of sports fan experiences, thanks to this historic 4K HEVC satellite transmission. Globosat is setting the pace with 4K and its innovative OTT and TV everywhere services. The reliability and video quality available with Elemental video processing and Broadcom decoding will be there every step of the way."

    World Cup fans over-index on multiscreen video behaviours

    Michelle Clancy
    | 13 June 2014

    World Cup fans will be watching the 2014 games across multiple devices, often simultaneously, according to an analysis from Experian Marketing Services.

    The research shows that such viewers are 31% more likely than average to watch online video across multiple devices, with 64% of adult fans watching online video during a typical week, compared with 49% of all adults.

    World Cup fans over-index in almost every aspect of digital video usage. They are 60% more likely to use their phone to keep up with sports; 65% more likely to stream video from a work computer; 20% more likely to multitask while watching TV; 37% more likely to use a digital tablet; and 60% more likely to use sports apps on their phone during a typical week.

    "Adult fans of the World Cup don't need a TV to watch video," said Bill Tancer, general manager of global research at Experian Marketing Services. "This is a digitally and technologically savvy audience that doesn't care how they watch their favourite programmes, just as long as they are able to watch them. Expect to see the 2014 World Cup broadcasted everywhere the fans are this year, whether that's at their desk computer or during their morning commute."

    The analysis also reveals that World Cup fans are 29% more likely to have a strong connection with branded goods and services placed in the context of TV shows.

    "The World Cup is a unique event for viewers, but also for marketers because it attracts a fully engaged, globally diverse audience that loves to shop and engage with brands for an entire month," said Tancer. "It's not just that they are aware of and engaged with branded products; they also are more likely to buy those products. Interestingly, we found the opposite in our analysis of Olympics viewers."

    What do these viewers like to buy? World Cup fans are frequent shoppers overall, but they have an affinity for upscale stores like Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Brooks Brothers, Nordstrom and Saks. They also shop at athletic stores like REI, Foot Locker, Modell's and Nike, and electronics stores like Apple.
