    60% to stream World Cup online – despite ITV epic fail

    Editor
    | 14 June 2014
    New research from Videology is predicting football fans will flock to online video during the World Cup - just as ITV scored a big own goal with its service.

    UK-based football fans hoping to stream live action from the opening game between hosts Brazil and Croatia were hit by huge network demand that collapsed the online video feed. In a total game of two halves, ITV reported a huge peak audience of over 12 million viewers.

    Yet despite this rather epic fail of online video in the most demanding of circumstances, the Videology survey asserts that viewership of the World Cup is steadily shifting online as more people look to live-stream matches to screens other than their TVs.

    The advertising platform provider's UK-based survey found that three-fifths of those watching the World Cup will this year stream at least one game online. For those who watch over 20 hours of TV a week, more than three-quarters (78%) intend to live-stream at least one match online.

    PCs were cited as the dominant way of watching matches, with 18% planning to use this screen, but mobiles and tablets were close behind with 14% planning to watch on these devices. Just under half (49%) of those who will watch games on TV will use a second screen at the same time

    Broadcasters ‘set for World Cup boost’

    June 14, 2014 06.52 Europe/London By Robert Briel


    world-cup-2014Broadcasters are expected to benefit from new production innovations and high audience figures as a result of this summer’s football action, according to Austin Houlihan, senior consultant at Deloitte’s Sports Business Group.

    “The World Cup is a premium property for free-to-air broadcasters in particular, due to its ability to generate high audiences in many territories. For example, in major European markets, tournament matches typically generate the highest sports audiences in that particular year. The German audience for the 2010 World Cup semi-final between Germany and Spain exceeded 30 million viewers, the first time a single German broadcaster had exceeded an audience of this size.

    “The World Cup’s kick-off times are conducive to driving strong audiences in areas such as North and South America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. As a result, the tournament in Brazil could generate a record global television audience.The 2010 final (Spain v Netherlands) was watched by a cumulative global audience of 910 million in-home viewers (measured as people watching at least one minute of coverage), according to FIFA research and if you include out-of-home viewers (e.g. pubs/clubs) the audience was in excess of one billion.

    “The World Cup’s ability to generate such audiences means that broadcasters and sponsors pay premium rights fees to secure rights to broadcast, or be associated, with the tournament.The 2014 tournament is likely to generate record high revenues for FIFA, which has forecast broadcast and commercial revenues of around $4 billion.

    “Deloitte predicts that as well as driving record broadcast and sponsorship revenues, the tournament will help to drive new standards in the quality of broadcast production.Production innovations include some matches being produced in ultra-high definition (4k and 8k) and an increased number of cameras and angles covering matches.The tournament will also cater for the increasing trend for audiences to view content through mobile devices, with greater numbers of viewers being able to access match footage (live, highlights, video on demand, clips) and associated content through their tablets and mobiles.”

    Colombia's ANTV forces Caracol, RCN back to pay-TV

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 15 June 2014

    Caracol and RCN are to return to pay-TV in Colombia, after the ANTV, the country's national TV association, instructed them to make their signals available for cable and satellite operators.

    Last week the Colombian Ministry of Industry and Commerce removed them from the list of authorised pay-TV providers, following a row over retransmission fees. Colombia’s pay-TV operators have been required to retransmit RCN Television’s and Caracol’s TV signals for years under a law that seeks to ensure all TV viewers have access to the most popular channels.

    However, the broadcasters asked the carriers to start paying for the use of their signals and the cable companies refused.

    The conflict is not resolved yet, but until the ANTV makes a final decision, RCN and Caracol will keep broadcasting through pay-TV.

    In a group press release, the country's main pay-TV operators Claro, DirecTV, UNE and Movistar said they would follow the ANTV's temporary decision and reschedule both channels as soon as the signal was available for them

    MultiChoice removes ZBC signal over World Cup TV rights issue

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 16 June 2014

    Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation's (ZBC) free-to-air signal has been deactivated from MultiChoice's DStv satellite platform to prevent World Cup matches being aired without licence in Africa.


    ZBC reassured viewers it would broadcast all 64 matches from Brazil on terrestrial television, having obtained the TV rights from FIFA to show the football tournament to viewers in Zimbabwe. It does not, however, hold the rights to broadcast the games via satellite outside the country's borders.

    "ZBC wishes to apologise to its viewers receiving the ZBC TV signal on the DStv platform for interruption of transmission since the beginning of the World Cup Brazil 2014," Clifford Mfiri, head of production and TV services, is quoted as saying in The Herald.

    "ZBC has received correspondence from MultiChoice Zimbabwe to the effect that they have been notified by the world football governing body, FIFA, to effect a blanket ban on all free-to-air channels broadcasting the games."

    SuperSport holds the pay-TV broadcast rights across Sub-Saharan Africa for the World Cup, which runs until 13 July 2014.

    Cable TV operators slam Lebanese state over failure to secure World Cup for all

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 16 June 2014

    Lebanese cable TV providers have criticised the government for not securing free-to-air World Cup 2014 broadcast rights for the country's population.


    The only way for Lebanese football lovers to legitimately watch the matches from Brazil is by subscribing to services authorised by SAMA, the sole agent of Middle East rights holder beIN Sports.

    "The government should form an emergency ministerial committee to enable the Lebanese people to watch the World Cup matches for free," said Mahmoud Khaled, general coordinator of the network of cable providers in Lebanon.

    Khaled says viewers cannot afford the fees demanded by SAMA nor, he added, could local cable providers afford the fees asked of them to carry the authorised feed, according to Naharanet.

    Pay-TV piracy is rife in Lebanon, and the government is yet to introduce a proper legal framework for copyright protection and to fully implement Lebanese laws to reduce intellectual property theft.

    In a press conference, Khaled claimed the state had "shied away from its responsibilities" regarding the universal accessibility of World Cup coverage, adding that cable operators were not warned that viewers would have to pay SAMA for beIN Sports viewing cards if they wished to watch World Cup games.

    "We will go ahead with the broadcast if we reach a short-term understanding with the judiciary and the agent and until the ministerial committee is formed," he told reporters.

    The FIFA World Cup 2014, which kicked off in Brazil on Thursday (12 June) will run until 13 July.

    CCTV, Alibaba team up for live World Cup video streaming

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 16 June 2014

    E-commerce group Alibaba has launched a mobile application via its cloud computing subsidiary with China Central Television (CCTV) to provide China's only live stream of World Cup matches for mobile users.


    The developer expects the authorised app to notch up 10 million users a day, reports the China Daily.

    "CCTV will focus on content production during the World Cup, and Web companies such as Alibaba will take care of the technical problems," said Wang Wenbin, head of Alibaba's cloud unit.

    CCTV reportedly spent US$115 million to secure the broadcasting rights from FIFA to air the 2010 and 2014 World Cups in China.

    The state-run station issued warning about unauthorised online match video sharing in China, ahead of the opening ceremony in Brazil on 12 June.

    "No news organisation, enterprise or individual should show [World Cup] game content of any kind on TV, radio, the Internet, IPTV or mobile applications until the end of 2014," CCTV said.
