    Media Networks promotes LATAM's DTH hub

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 18 June 2014

    Media Networks recently organised a new edition of its direct-to-home (DTH) workshop in Peru's capital Lima to promote the installations of its satellite hub among Latin American pay-TV operators.

    The meeting gathered many clients of Media Network's wholesale service and its main technological partners. Chile's Entel, Brazil's CTBC, Unotel, Reditel and Superitelcom and Ecuador's CNT, VGL and Univisa, among others, visited the regional network operations centre.

    During the workshop, participants experienced UltraHD TV formats, second-screen and over-the-top (OTT) services and new subscriber communication channels. Some of the latest developments in set-top box (STB) technology were also presented.

    In addition to pay-TV operators, Media Networks partners including Hispasat, Thomson, Nagra, Intraway, Broadcom, ST, Mstar, Jizhou, Echostar, Easy Digital, Sagemcom, SmartDTV, Kaon and Observa Telecom assisted in the event.

    "The pay-TV service is an essential element in our clients' offers, which is why we try to improve our relationship with them in order to become strategic partners," said Javier Izquierdo, Media Networks' director for wholesaler operations. "We also work closely with our technological partners to keep our clients up-to-date."

    Peru's pay-TV grows 4%, pirate connections up almost 20%

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 18 June 2014

    Peru's illegal cable and satellite connections are growing unstoppably, representing almost half of the country's subscribers.

    While pay-TV has a 40.2% penetration rate in Peru and 62% in the capital Lima, the industry says it has nothing to celebrate, as 48% of the connections are illegal and growing five times faster than the legal ones.

    According to a report from the Peruvian association Contribuyentes por Respeto, published by the newspaper El Comercio, the country's pay-TV sector reached three million subs during last year, but nearly half of these were provided by illegal operators.

    "While last year Osiptel [the country's telecoms regulator] was talking about 1.3 million subs, the INEI [the national statistics institute] was reporting 2.7 million," said DirecTV's Gianmarco Asencio.

    This tendency in Peru is not new, in the last ten years illegal subscriptions have grown from 5.7% to 48% of all pay-TV connections.

    The Ministry for Communications currently has 470 registered cable operators, and almost 60 of them are being investigated. While only a few big operators work in the country, hundreds of small companies operate on a local scale, delivering pirate channels to their customers.

    iOS outpaces Android as smartphone video platform

    Ooyala’s Q1 2014 Global Video Index shows iOS outpaces Android as a smartphone video platform, despite a smaller market share.

    Mobile and tablet viewing represented over 21$ of all online video plays in Q1 2014, up from 3.4% in Q1 2012 and just over 9% in Q1 2013. With a year-over-year increase of 532% since 2012, mobile and tablet video consumption is clearly becoming mandatory for any company in the video business.

    The report shows that this trend is even greater outside of the US. Ooyala’s data shows that mobile plays in Europe and Latin America outpaced mobile plays in North America, as a percentage of all online video plays. This growth underscores the need for broadcasters and publishers to prioritise mobile strategies, and demonstrates the burgeoning opportunity for advertisers to reach device-specific audiences anywhere, on a massive scale.

    “The statistics in our Global Video Index continue to affirm our belief that mobile is in large part the future of video and TV consumption. We see the acceleration of mobile video consumption happening globally, as consumers in every region adopt mobile and tablet video faster, and interact with it longer,” said Jay Fulcher, CEO at Ooyala.

    “These insights validate the tremendous opportunity for broadcasters and publishers to tap into additional multiscreen revenue streams, grow and maintain loyal audiences across all devices, and build a fundamentally better video business.”

    iOS has historically dominated the market for online video plays, though Android is catching up. According to IDC, worldwide Android device shipments reached 226 million units in Q4 2013, compared to 51 million iOS units. With Android’s growing footprint, and better tools for supporting video playback across the Android ecosystem, Android is gaining momentum as a video device. In some regions it beat iOS, in terms of the number of videos streamed on each platform.

    Ooyala data comparing mobile video consumption across geographies shows that the Asia-Pacific region is overwhelmingly Apple-centric, with 82% of video views occurring on iOS devices. In North America, iOS-based phones dominate video viewing with a 60% share.

    In Europe, viewers prefer iOS just slightly, with 55% compared to 45% for Android. Android earned higher views over iOS in Latin America, representing 53% of smartphone plays. Countries where Android won out over iOS include Malaysia (64%), India (79%), and Pakistan (81%), as well as Spain and France where Android took 69% and 59% of the overall mobile views during the quarter, respectively.

    Reliance Industries announces 4G broadband launch

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 19 June 2014

    Reliance Jio, the 4G mobile broadband network from Reliance Industries (RIL), will be launched across India in 2015, boosted with video content from the company's recently announced US$679 million takeover of Network18 Media.

    At launch the broadband service will reportedly cover all states, accounting for 90% of urban India and 215,000 villages. Later it will expand to 600,000 villages.

    "They would ensure that every Indian has access to the state-of-the-art digital connectivity and services that are on par with or better than anywhere else in the world," said Mukesh Ambani, chairman, told attendees at RIL's annual general meeting.

    Reliance Jio will be "one of the largest job-creating and wealth-creating business initiatives in India," he added, stating the initiative is employing 10,000 full time staff, along with 30,000 affiliated professionals around the world.

    Ambani said the 4G mobile broadband service will benefit from the video content provided by Network18, once the Indian broadcaster becomes part of the RIL family.

    "The acquisition through an open offer of Network18 Media and Investments and its subsidiary TV18 Broadcast by Independent Media Trust, the sole beneficiary of which is Reliance Industries is one aspect of the digital services play."

    Network18 is a significant presence in India's news and entertainment TV sector, and is also involved in movie production, print media, e-commerce and digital content.

    Nigeria, Ghana top continent's World Cup TV ratings

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 19 June 2014

    The World Cup first round match between Nigeria and Iran drew a huge TV audience in Africa, with 17.5 million watching in Nigeria alone.


    A first of its kind measurement survey from Geo found that 25 million – or 15% of adults aged over 15 – watched the Nigeria vs. Iran match in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda.

    Ghana's TV viewing figures have remained high across all World Cup games: 3.5 million watched the opening game between Brazil and Croatia, and the gripping match between Ghana and the United States on Monday attracted 2.4 million adult Ghanaian viewers.

    In Ghana 1.7 million people aged 15-24 tuned in to the Germany versus Portugal game, or about 18% of the youth population. In Kenya almost 900,000 aged 15-24 watched the same game, and in Nigeria 3.5 million youths were watching.

    In Ghana, men are more likely to watch the games: for the first five days of the World Cup 2014 the gender split was an average of 28% female to 72% male. In Nigeria, the gender split is less dramatic at about 38% female to 62% male.

    GeoPoll's Audience Measurement Service uses a panel system to compile statistically representative TV and radio ratings within 24 hours of programmes airing. Data is gathered using SMS, voice and web-based communications to reach survey respondents, even in areas without internet connection.

    SyncScreen, Civolution power CBBC games app

    Joseph O'Halloran
    | 19 June 2014

    BBC children's channel CBBC has tapped two-screen technology provider SyncScreen and monetisation firm Civolution to launch its first ever play-along quiz app for Gory Games.

    The iOS and Android tablet and smartphone app is designed to let viewers take on studio contestants, test their knowledge of facts and win virtual prizes whilst watching the show live or on-demand on the BBC iPlayer.

    The app design and user experience was produced by SyncScreen and is the second SyncNow ACR-enabled play-along app for a CBBC show that is powered by the SyncScreen Framework API. The first app powered by the SyncScreen Framework, also using Civolution's SyncNow ACR technology, was for the CBBC series Ludus and involved synchronising more traditional app mini-games to the studio game show. The attendant play-along app was designed by Cube Interactive using the SyncScreen API and was launched in January 2014.

    "We wanted to create the optimal play-along experience for Gory Games using all our editorial know-how and design insight to produce a fun, immersive and sympathetic two-screen TV experience for children," commented Marc Goodchild, creative director of SyncScreen. "We feel that we have achieved that. Crucially, from a creative and production process perspective, our SyncScreen Framework made the synchronisation functions easy to implement and we have used Civolution's SyncNow watermarking solution as the underlying enabling tech for frame-accurate cue detection to maximum effect."

    "We are delighted to be working with SyncScreen to deliver this great synchronised app. We are confident that such projects will help create stronger relationships with younger audiences, who as 'digital natives' will naturally want to play along with a well-designed app that's fun and easy to follow," added Civolution CMO Andy Nobbs. "Synchronisation between multiple screens is becoming increasingly prevalent in mainstream TV programming. The launch of the Gory Games app is further proof that a well designed and produced two-screen experience can unlock deeper viewer engagement models."

    «ukurova wins Turkcell extension

    The UK’s Privy Council has given Turkey’s «ukurova Holding until July 30 to pay around $1.6 billion to the Alfa Group to recover its stake in Turkcell.

    The 13.8% stake was appropriated by the Russian company when «ukurova defaulted on a loan of $1.35 billion and the Privy Council had previously set a June deadline for payment of the $1.6 billion, which includes interest.

    Turkcell is the leading mobile operator in Turkey and also has interests in the country’s TV industry.

    According to Hurriyet, the Yildiz Holding firm GŲzde Girisin will now help «ukurova retake its stake in Turkcell on strong assurances.

    However, it has ruled out the possibility of entering into a partnership.

    Towercom sale on the horizon

    The Slovak terrestrial and satellite transmission company Towercom is understood to be for sale.

    Quoting a source familiar with the situation, Trend.sk and Parabola report that there are several interested parties and it is currently waiting for official bids.

    TMT Finance last month identified Alinda Capital Partners, Ceske Radiokomunikace (CRa) and Infracapital patricia as having an interest in Towercom and that talks were at an advanced stage.

    Although Towercom’s interests are currently focused on Slovakia, it used to own the Czech/Slovak DTH platform Skylink befire selling it to the Luxembourg-based M7 Group in 2011.
