    Voddler launches Bollyvod

    Swedish streaming provider Voddler is launching Bollyvod worldwide, starting in the US.

    Bollyvod shows movies and shows from India’s Bollywood industry online at bollyvod.com and via dedicated apps, which will soon be available. Over 100 000 hours of movies and TV-episodes have been cleared from Bollywood’s leading content owners, such as Zee Entertainment, Reliance, Eros International, UTV Motion Pictures and Sony Music.

    After the US, Bollyvod will now roll out globally over the coming months, as a mixed free- and subscription VOD service.

    “In many countries, Bollywood fans are a niche audience. On a global scale, though, they are a mass market crying out for Indian cinema and TV-shows. Bollyvod gives people exactly what they want: good content truly anywhere and anytime, with an extraordinary quality of service. In doing this, Bollywood crushes piracy. So while Hollywood struggles with its digital transition, Bollywood will generate new revenue and make piracy streaming irrelevant, thanks to one global disruptive move. When will we see a Hollywood doing this?” asked Marcus Bäcklund, CEO.

    Bollyvod’s global streaming capacity comes from Vnet, Voddler’s streaming cloud, sometimes described as a ‘controlled peer-to-peer network’. By letting all end-users take part in streaming videos to each other, Vnet only becomes stronger the more users it gets, allowing it to deliver quality streams even in low bandwidth territories.

    “With Vnet, Bollyvod users actually help each other watch videos. In fact, the concept of decentralized distribution has primarily been used by pirates. Here, we take that idea, but working together we all create a new part of the Internet, focused on delivering videos, securely and safely. Consumers benefit, content owners benefit, even telecom operators benefit. You can see why Bollywood believes in Bollyvod,” continued Bäcklund.

    World Cup broadcasters target billions of multiscreens

    This summer’s football World Cup is proving to be the most accessible in the tournament’s history, with broadcast and streaming services available on up to 5.9 billion screens globally.

    This is according to Ovum, which reveals that PCs, tablets, and smartphones are providing alternatives to conventional TV viewing, accounting for 57% of all screens. World Cup broadcasters target 5.9 billion screens and 4.7 billion connected devices.

    However, with football fans keen to watch the matches on the biggest screen and in the highest resolution possible, Ovum stresses that the importance of traditional broadcasting; via terrestrial, cable, satellite, or IPTV – for attracting the largest audiences and generating the most value for World Cup rights holders.

    Connected devices are playing a crucial role in evolving viewing habits for big-event TV, though. “Devices capable of streaming live and on-demand video – of which there now 4.7 billion – are providing additional viewing opportunities outside the appointment viewing taking place in people’s living rooms,” said Ted Hall, senior analyst at Ovum.

    “With the likes of tablets providing the convenience and flexibility to consume content whenever and wherever, fans are able to watch more of the tournament than ever before.”

    The reliability of online streams compared with traditional broadcasts remains a concern, however. “For broadcasters and operators providing multiplatform World Cup services, supplying demand with minimal technical hiccups should be of paramount concern,” added Hall.

    “Having set consumer expectations for TV Everywhere, providers must now deliver on the promise of their offerings, as failure to do so can result in bad press and, more importantly, frustrated fans. While viewing live events online is improving, there is some way to go before it can compare with the reliability traditional TV distribution offers for the largest audiences.”

    Significant innovation of the viewing experience for this World Cup is somewhat lacking, in Ovum’s view. The tournament will not, for instance, provide the launch pad for the much-vaunted 4K Ultra high-definition format – though FIFA and technology partner Sony are capturing three matches in 4K, very few people see them in this resolution, with screenings limited to public venues in Rio de Janeiro.

    “4K technology is far from ready for home viewing, with holes in the transmission part of the ecosystem meaning that it will be some time before audiences of any significant scale will be watching UHDTV content in their living rooms,” explained Hall.

    “And with FIFA abandoning its support of 3DTV for Brazil 2014 – in light of the format’s spectacular failure to capture the public’s imagination – the less-glamorous HDTV will be the preferred format of many World Cup viewers, with up to 260 million homes watching matches in high-definition.”

    UK TV production rockets

    Members of the Commercial Broadcasters Association (COBA) invested a record £725 million (€907.2 million) in UK television production last year, according to the associations’ 2014 census.

    This was the highest level of such investment since COBA’s census started in 2009 and was nearly 50% on the figure of £487 million in that year.

    Other key findings of the census, which was sponsored by the British Film Commission and Film London, were:

    Investment in new (i.e. first-run) UK programming has risen strongly, up 53% from £387 million in 2009 to £597 million last year.

    Investment in programmes made by UK independent TV producers also recorded strong growth, up 18% compared to the previous census.

    Multichannel broadcasters have increased their investment in UK news and current affairs to nearly £90 million per annum, up 2.8% per annum since 2011.

    The new tax reliefs for high end TV and animation are having a positive effect, attracting production worth £447 million in their first year. This included large scale productions based across the entire UK, including London, the English regions and Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

    Commenting on the results of the census, Dee Forbes, COBA chair and president & MD of Discovery Networks, Western Europe, said: “This is the highest recorded level of investment in UK content from COBA members and demonstrates our commitment to the sector. Our members increased their investment in overall UK television content and recorded particularly strong growth in first-run programmes and commissions from independent producers. Multichannel broadcasters are one of the fastest growing parts of the UK broadcasting sector.”

    Adrian Wootton, chief executive of the British Film Commission and Film London, added: “We are delighted to work in association with Coba and its membership to support this report which demonstrates the UK’s growing success in attracting significant international investment through television production. Thanks to our excellent tax reliefs, our world-class talent and infrastructure are welcoming a range of international and domestic production, boosting the economy and creating thousands of jobs.”

    Cyfrowy Polsat emulates Netflix

    Poland’s Telewizja Polsat and the on demand service ipla are to offer their viewers the first-ever high budget locally produced series online before it is shown on TV.

    The second season of the popular Na krawedzi will be made available to Plus and Cyfrowy Polsat subscribers from July 1, a full two months ahead of its transmission by Telewizja Polsat.

    The first series of the crime series attracted an average weekly audience share of almost 2.6 million and the second series will automatically be made available to 4.2 million ipla viewers.

    In offering Na krawedzi inline ahead of its TV transmission, Cyfrowy Polsat is going down the same route as Netflix with its highly successful House of Cards.

    Cisco extends video infrastructure software lead in Q1

    New Q1 data from Synergy Research Group shows that Cisco has extended the lead over its main video infrastructure software rivals Nagra, Arris, Rovi and Irdeto.

    While total quarterly revenues fell 4% on a sequential basis, Cisco revenues were essentially flat enabling it to grow its market share to almost 21%. The biggest annual revenue growth was achieved by Arris thanks to its acquisition of Motorola Home last year – while the total market grew 5% year-on-year, Arris revenues grew more than eight-fold.



    On a rolling four-quarterly basis, total video infrastructure software revenues comfortably exceeded $5 billion. Some software segments continue to grow at double-digit growth rates.

    “The way that customers consume video continues to change dramatically and this is having some profound effects on the whole video ecosystem” said John Dinsdale, a Chief Analyst and Research Director at Synergy Research Group.

    “While set-top boxes and relatively monolithic electronic programme guides once ruled the market, we’re now moving rapidly towards more flexible cloud and software oriented business models. Hardware revenues still far outweigh software revenues, but increasingly it is software that is driving the market.”

    World Cup adds $1,500 million to advertising market

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 18 June 2014


    Brazil's World Cup will earn the worldwide advertising market an extra $1,500 million, helping achieve a growth of 5.4% this year.

    TV networks and websites will benefit most from the event, according to the latest report from ZenithOptimedia.

    The panel estimates that TV will achieve the greatest audiences during the World Cup, although advertisers will invest more in the Internet and social media, where activity will be higher than in any previous sporting event.

    Regarding regions, Latin America will be getting the most investment. According to ZenithOptimedia, $500 million will go to Latin America and $300 million will be invested in the US advertising market. For Western Europe, the amount is also estimated to be around $300 million, being lower for Eastern Europe and Asia, where the time difference reduces the event's potential audience.

    Mostly thanks to the World Cup, the general predictions for the Eurozone are better than in Zenith's previous report. While in April the figures pointed to a 1.7% growth by the end of 2014, the agency now says a 2.2% growth is expected, mostly due to the UK and Swedish markets.

    "The World Cup is a great opportunity for advertisers to reach passionate and involved audiences worldwide. While television will remain central to how fans experience the competition, advertisers are using digital media more than ever before to help shape this experience. Over the next few years internet advertising will play an even greater role in supplementing the brand-building power of television," said Steve King, ZenithOptimedia's CEO, Worldwide.

    Venezuela delivers half a million STBs

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 18 June 2014

    Venezuela's national telco Cantv has delivered 66,000 DTT set-top boxes (STB) since the beginning of the year, taking the total to nearly half a million since the start of the initiative, which aims to give digital TV access to less well-off families.

    The DTT network is continuing to expand and currently reaches 60% of the population, according to the Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation. The Government intends to install 38 stations during 2014, through which it plans to cover almost the entire country with a digital TV signal.

    However, the DTT deployment has not been going exactly to plan. The first estimate in 2012 was to cover half the population by the end of that year. In July, the government set new deadlines for the project and said that 60% of the country would be covered by December, a figure which has been reached only now.
