    ESPN garners record ratings for Brazil-Croatia World Cup opener

    Gabriel Miramar-Garcia
    | 16 June 2014

    In a testament to the beautiful game taking off in the United States, ESPN has scored the highest ever ratings for an opening game for the World Cup on record (back to 1994), according to Nielsen — across linear and digital channels.


    The 2014 FIFA World Cup saw Brazil meet Croatia in a contest that saw the home team win 3-1. In the US it averaged a 2.8 rating and garnered 4.435 million viewers on ESPN, to rank as the highest rated and most viewed opening game of the tournament ever for the network.

    That rating is 49% higher than the opening match in 2010, South Africa vs. Mexico, which garnered a 1.9 rating. The audience for Brazil vs. Croatia was up 55% over 2010, which had 2.856 million viewers.

    In addition, of the 205 Group Play games ESPN networks have aired since 1994, this contest is the fourth highest rated and fourth most viewed, topped only by three US games in the 2010 tournament: US vs. Algeria drew a 4.0 rating and 6.161 million viewers; US vs. Slovenia delivered a 3.4 rating and 5.2 million viewers; and US vs. Colombia, which drew a 2.9 rating and 4.81 million viewers.

    Including a record audience on WatchESPN, across all platforms ESPN's presentation of the first of 64 games in the next month averaged 4.889 million viewers at any time.

    On WatchESPN, Brazil vs. Croatia produced a record 1.1 million unique viewers and 50.1 million minutes across all streams and devices, up 132% and 172%, respectively, compared to the first match of the 2010 World Cup. The 1.1 million unique viewers were the highest ever for a WatchESPN event, and total minutes was second only to the 2014 BCS Championship Game.

    Consumption of digital content across ESPN platforms was also up. Video starts on ESPNFC.com increased by 553%, compared to day one of World Cup 2010. ESPN.com, which includes ESPNFC.com, was up 26% in unique visitors from the first day of World Cup 2010, including 12.8 million video starts for clips, up 62%. Unique visitors to the ESPN Mobile Web were up 65%, while unique visitors to the ESPN SportCenter app were up 465%, compared to the first day of World Cup 2010.

    The Browns DeskSite, an over-the-top (OTT) video product that delivers hours of exclusive Cleveland Browns content to fans, has officially launched.


    The Browns DeskSite serves as a personalised video recorder and content library for Browns HD video, using a specialised Big Screen app that offers new technology specifically designed for laptops, desktops and tablets, instead of smartphones, to support fans' growing consumption of online video.

    The app automatically downloads and stores videos directly to users' devices, allowing fans to view content without having to be connected to the Internet. Playback is instantaneous, with none of the buffering, freezing or dropping associated with streaming video. Options include audiovisual alerts, dramatically reducing the delay between a video's initial release and fan access.

    The Browns DeskSite also operates as a central hub for aggregated access to all Browns digital content, including ClevelandBrowns.com, Facebook and Twitter.

    Video programming includes Browns Daily segments, interviews with players and coaches, post-game recaps, breaking news, in-depth scouting combine and draft coverage, game highlights and more.

    EBRD calls for Telekom Srbija sale

    The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has called for the privatisation of the Serbian incumbent Telekom Srbija as soon a possible.

    Quoted in Capital.ba, Mateo Patrone, the bank’s director, said that financial institutions should not withdraw their shares in the telco.

    However, the company also needed a strategic investor that would take a significant stake in it.

    Patrone also revealed that the EBRD had already spoken with Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic about the privatisation of several Serbian companies, including Telekom Srbija.

    Although the EBRD stance on privatisations was “the sooner the better”, it recognised that they should be done in the best possible way, with open tenders in order to maximise the value of the companies.

    Patrone added that the EBRD is interested in participating in multiple ways of privatisation, either through the purchase of shares with other investors, funding other investors to buy shares or providing funding for companies for further investment.

    He also said that the EBRD already has shares in 39 Serbian companies and stakes of about 25% in two state-owned banks.

    Telekom Srbija currently lists the Republic of Serbia as its majority shareholder (58.11%), followed by Telekom Srbija AD (20%), Citizens of the Republic of Serbia (14.95%) and Telekom Srbija and legal predecessor employees and former employees (6.94%).

    Telefónica, TVE to produce new international signal for coronation

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 16 June 2014

    The coronation ceremony of Spain's new king has captured international attention, and the event's programming is to be produced by Telefónica from inside Parliament and TVE from outside.

    The Spanish public channel was awarded the production of all ceremonial proceedings in Madrid and the arrival of new king Felipe VI to the royal palace. Telefónica, which has been in charge of producing programming for Parliament in recent years, will be responsible for the HD production inside Congress, in which the coronation will take place.

    Speculation about whether TVE would broadcast the entire ceremony has appeared in the Spanish media over the past week, although none of the networks involved have made public statements.

    In addition to the signal production, TVE will be dedicating most of its programming to the coronation ceremony. Its news programmes will be broadcast from the royal palace on 18-19 June (when the ceremony takes place).

    Special shows and documentaries about the new and the old king will also be broadcast. During the day of the ceremony, TVE's programming will exclusively focus on the event for 24 hours.

    Nine Network Australia Upgrades Satellite Network With Newtec

    Modulators, Demodulators, Multistream and Aggregators Deployed to Maximize Efficiency on a Full 54MHz Leased Optus D1 Ku Band Transponder at 160°E

    SYDNEY, Australia, and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 16 June 2014 Nine Network Australia has deployed several of Newtec’s solutions in order to boost efficiency in its satellite network, allowing 64% more data rate throughput.

    A large order of Newtec’s broadcast satellite modulators and demodulators, designed for broadcast contribution, DSNG and distribution applications over satellite, has now been deployed across the Nine Network, which is one of the highest-rating television networks in Australia. The upgrade, supplied via Newtec’s Australian partner Lumina Broadcast Systems, is fully compliant with DVB-S2 and utilizes Newtec’s Clean Channel Technology® and Multistream® technology. Multistream allows Nine to aggregate independent transport streams into a single satellite carrier.

    “If I think back to a time before upgrading the lower half of our Ku Band leased transponder we operated two carriers totalling 45Mbps throughput in an occupied bandwidth of 27MHz. Compare this to now in the same occupied bandwidth we achieve two carriers totalling 74Mbps throughput. This improved throughput is a lot more than we could have achieved with the older DVB-S technology,” said Geoff Osborne, Engineering Development Manager at Nine Network.

    Newtec and Nine Network have a long history of working together to optimize satellite efficiency and Osborne said a strong rapport, value added services, reliability and post sales support influenced Nine Network Australia’s decision to opt for Newtec’s new technologies.

    “I have been working closely with engineers from Newtec for more than 15 years personally. In fact in some instances Newtec technology installed back at the start of our relationship is still operating perfectly,” said Osborne. ”As time is often short, the best thing is having Newtec available to help design and plan options for the best topology and upgrades for our network. Giving our viewers the widest choice and greatest quality, using the satellite capacity we lease in the most effective way, is top priority.”

    Newtec’s solutions are designed to have a multitude of advantages including lower operational costs, highest bandwidth efficiency, guaranteed interoperability with DVB receivers, high versatility and flexibility as well as a future-proof design combining video and IP technologies.

    “Working together with Nine Network Australia has been fantastic and we are pleased to have delivered a great boost to the efficiency of their satellite operations with our solutions. Long-term relationships are very important to us and that’s why delivering a good after and pre-sales support is so important,” said Dave Suffys, Sales Support Manager at Newtec.

    Online news video equals cable for viewership

    Michelle Clancy | 17 June 2014


    More than six in ten US adults now watch video online – and roughly half of those, 36%, catch up on their news via online video, according to a recent report by Pew Research. This is roughly the same percentage of Americans who now get news from Facebook or watch cable news channels regularly.

    The firm found that technological improvements lowering the barrier to entry, both for the audience and those in the news business, have spurred a wave of new entrants into the digital news video space. With 36% of US adults recording videos on their cell phones, citizens are playing a valuable role in the news process, sharing videos of eyewitness moments around news events small and large. And both digital news outlets like Vice Media as well as legacy outlets like NBC took steps to develop approaches to digital video content in 2013.

    But a closer look suggests that digital news video does not necessarily have a clear or simple path to becoming a major form of news in the future. Producing high-quality video – or even streaming it live – can be costly, and the pay-off is not clear. Video advertising, while on the rise, amounts to just 10% of all digital ad revenue and just 2% of total ad revenue. Large distributors of video content like YouTube already account for a large portion of video watching on the Web, and a hefty share of the revenue.

    "And for traditional legacy providers – local TV stations and national networks – most of their audience and revenue are still in the legacy platforms, which may reduce these companies' desire to invest in digital video in a big way," Pew said. "Non-digital news revenue on local and national broadcasts, as well as cable, now amounts to $16 billion a year."

    On the consumer side, while television viewing has been the most popular form of news consumption for decades, it is still not clear how much that will translate to high levels of video-based news online. The growth rate has slowed considerably since 2007 (the year after YouTube was purchased by Google and the year the iPhone was released). From 2007 to 2009 the percentage of adults watching online news video increased 27%, but the next four years (2009 to 2013) saw just 9% growth.

    "It is true that mobile devices are accounting for a larger share of video viewing, which could bring another spike in growth, but at the moment that increase remains only a hypothetical," Pew noted.

    Overall, the Pew study finds that online video is clearly becoming a part of the news media landscape. News is a part of what people watch online, and, more than ever, the public is a part of creating this news.

    "But online video is also very much still in development, and the revenue opportunities, while they exist, are complicated," the firm noted. "Some who have moved most powerfully into this space are digital natives, not tethered to legacy platforms that still account for a good portion of their audience and revenue."

    Mondelez dips into programmatic advertising with TubeMogul

    Michelle Clancy | 17 June 2014

    TubeMogul has announced a global online video partnership with Mondelez International, maker of Oreos and a range of other snacks. The partnership aims at optimising Mondelez International's online video advertising strategy – including media planning, buying and ad serving, using TubeMogul's software.

    Mondelez will use TubeMogul's full product suite for media buying, including BrandPoint, a tool for accurately buying digital video on a gross rating point (GRP) basis. Media bought through alternate channels will be served and audited for viewability by TubeMogul.

    Mondelez will debut the use of the software in the Canada and United States, with potential expansion to additional markets in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

    The deal reflects the growing trend of utilising programmatic buying to improve online video effectiveness. The company will establish a programmatic media buying team at MediaVest, Mondelez International's media agency of record for North America.

    "We're very excited about the partnership with TubeMogul because it allows us to improve our video effectiveness. As a company, we're aiming to shift more media spending to digital and online video is a key part of that," said Bonin Bough, vice president of global media and consumer engagement at Mondelez. "Through TubeMogul, we gain unparalleled transparency in both delivery and pricing. And with MediaVest as a partner, we can leverage our existing infrastructure and expertise while having close proximity between our programmatic and traditional approaches."

    Conde Nast inks first-look deal with Fox

    Michelle Clancy | 17 June 2014


    Conde Nast Entertainment has signed a first look deal with Twentieth Century Fox TV for scripted television projects — the first such deal the company has made.

    Under the deal, scripted broadcast shows will be developed and produced by CNE for Twentieth Century Fox Television, and cable projects will be developed and produced for Twentieth's cable production arm Fox 21.

    "Twentieth Century Fox Television and Fox 21 have a true commitment to quality storytelling that has resulted in some of the most popular and acclaimed television today," said CNE president Dawn Ostroff. "Pairing that with CNE's incredible archive of rich storytelling and iconic brands as source material is a powerful combination."

    In the past year, the company has sold more than ten series pilots to broadcast, cable and digital networks. CNE will have three series on the air this year, including Vanity Fair Confidential on Investigation Discovery, The Fashion Fund on Ovation and Geeks Who Drink on Syfy.
