    TV sets continue to dominate as UK viewers stay loyal to live

    There may indeed be many ways to watch TV, but UK viewers are remaining steadfast to watching TV as it is broadcast.


    ppp 4 5 second screen lifestyleAccording to research carried out by IpsosMediaCT on behalf of Thinkbox, the trade association representing UK commercial TV companies, 88% of TV in the UK continues to be watched live, as it is broadcast. And despite the growing success of online subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) services such as Netflix and Amazon, the research also found that people in the UK actually underestimate how much live TV they watch: asked what proportion of their TV viewing they thought was live, on average people claimed 57%.

    Overall, 98.2% of TV viewing was found to take place on a TV set, and the TV Nation research found that 55% of the UK claim only ever to watch TV on a TV set, despite the prevalence of new screens such as tablets. Asked which type of screen gave the best viewing experience, the sample showed that TV set dominated with 88%. Next were laptops (6%), then desktop computers (3%), then tablets and smartphones (both with 2%).

    The TV Nation report also revealed the reasons why people choose live TV. They are: to watch live action as it happens (28%); to discover programmes and continue watching them (23%); wanting to watch live to create a TV 'event' (19%); watching together with friends or family (17%); to watch shows they have been looking forward to as soon as possible (17%).

    But not overlooking alternative viewing, the research also revealed that in the UK tablets are set to overtake laptops as the favourite second screen. The TV Nation 2012 report found that only 5% of the UK claimed to watch on tablets and 22% on laptops; two years later these figures are 17% and 23% respectively.

    Looking at why people connect to a second screen, the research found that 41% did so to catch up with missed programmes. Next was to watch something when others were in the room watching something else (31%); watching in rooms where there's no TV set (25%); watching shows that viewers did not have access to on their TV set (23%); for entertainment when travelling (21%).

    "This research explains how TV is changing but also, importantly, how the fundamentals remain the same," said Nicole Greenfield-Smith, research controller at Thinkbox, commenting on the company's reserch. "It shows how the TV set in the living room remains at the centre of our viewing and the human desire to live in the moment, to belong and to share experiences is reflected in the continuing dominance of live TV. People are also relishing watching TV in new ways, on-demand and on new devices, as an additional activity not as a substitute. It is a testament to the attraction of live TV that the main reason to watch TV on other screens is to catch up with a missed show.'"

    Karamay becomes China's first triple-play connected city

    The Chinese city of Karamay has become the country's first city to provide bundled voice, video and data services to all residents.


    The triple-play system has been installed as part of an investment by China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom and Karamay Radio and Television Transmission Company. The four organisations invested ¥220 million (US$36 million) to pilot the scheme in 2011, according to state news agency Xinhua.

    Since then, single fibre optic connections have been installed in around 130,000 homes in the city, providing each with 100M of Internet connectivity.

    Su Guoping, deputy director of the Xinjiang regional commission of economic and information technology, said the northwest Chinese city of Karamay is now a model for others wishing to install a triple-play fibre optic network, according to the report.

    Back in 2012, the Multiplay Forecast predicted a boom in the number of Chinese subscriptions to bundled services, from 112 million in 2011 to 253 million in 2016.

    Broadband Forum supports G.fast standard to alleviate UltraHD bottleneck

    Aiming to boost 4KTV delivery, the global association of broadband service providers and technology vendors, the Broadband Forum, has announced support for the G.fast ITU-T ultra broadband access standard.


    MemberCMYKwebThe standard has been proposed as a new way to deliver bandwidth intensive consumer applications such as 4K/UltraHD and cloud-based consumer applications. G.fast uses a mix of technology and architecture, which is claimed to increase dramatically the performance of digital transmission over telephone wires. It enables up to 1Gbps by using next-generation, high bandwidth communications technologies and by placing them closer to the home into the distribution point, where phone lines get bundled near the residence, within 300 metres from the customer premises.

    The Broadband Forum has a number of programmes designed to speed up the release of G.fast-based services including the Fibre to the Distribution Point (FTTdp) enhanced architecture called, a series of G.fast plug-fests starting in January to ensure chip interoperability, a G.fast certification programme launching in 2015 and a series of standards to define management of G.fast related equipment.

    "Consumers should have confidence that the leading broadband service providers globally are working hard to deliver 1Gbps, ultra broadband access," commented Robin Marsh, CEO of Broadband Forum. "The new G.fast standard makes it possible for telcos to deploy 4K UHD services faster and more affordably than they could with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH)."

    The US Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the trade association representing the consumer technology industry, also applauded the new ITU-T standard. "The hot new product this holiday season and beyond is 4K UHD TVs," said president and CEO Gary Shapiro. "But consumers need confidence that 4K UHD TV online content distribution services, which are often limited by bandwidth rates, are feasible. G.fast offers a promising way to overcome this challenge."

    Global advertising to grow 4% to hit $536 billion by 2015

    A stronger general global economy in 2015 will likely just about compensate for the lack of a World Cup or major sports events, says research from MAGNA GLOBAL.

    The strategic global media unit of IPG Mediabrands predicts that globally, media owner advertising revenues will grow by 4.8% in 2015 to $536 billion. Yet the analyst notes that if realised it would still represent a slight fall on the pace shown in 2014 which is likely to be 5.5%.

    Looking at the TV market specifically, MAGNA GLOBAL says that non-recurring sports events of 2014 contributed to a global growth of TV of 5.2%. Interestingly, the research found that the FIFA World Cup was a clear positive in some markets like the UK and the US, but it was neutral in Germany and below expectations in Brazil. The Winter Olympics and mid-term elections bonanza proved below expectations in the US.

    Overall it calculates that US media owner TV advertising revenues (2014-2016) will amount to $66.654 billion by the end of 2014, a growth of 4.8% and giving TV a market share of 40.4%. In a year's time the TV market is projected to slip slightly to $65.706 billion before responding with a 4.7% increase to $68.825 billion. In 2015 and 2016 TV's market share will likely be 38.8% and 38.5% respectivley.

    By contrast, in 2014 online video is expected to take a 2.3% market share and be worth $3.812 billion, growing 27.8% annually. Growth in 2015 is expected to be even stronger at 42.5% generating $5.433 billion and leading to a 3.2% share.

    Consumers spend almost six times more on TV than mobile apps

    Consumer home entertainment dollars continue to mostly go towards TV, research from Flurry has revealed.

    The survey shows that on average, in 2014, an American consumer is paying 64 cents per hour of entertainment on cable TV, compared to just 11 cents on mobile games. That translates to 5.8 times or 482% more for an hour of cable.

    "Over the past few years, we have seen mobile and apps invade the American living room and displace television as America's favourite pastime," said Simon Khalaf, president and CEO at the analyst firm, in a blog. "While there is a general agreement that mobile apps are taking minutes from other entertainment channels, including television, there hasn't been much analysis on how dollars are shifting from TV to apps: subscription dollars, advertising dollars, or otherwise. We have conducted an analysis to figure out how consumer dollars have moved and the short answer is: not much. At least not yet."

    Because it's the most mainstream and best monetised mobile category, Flurry used mobile games as a proxy for the overall media and entertainment category on mobile.

    "It is true that both are still dramatically cheaper than an average of $5 per hour of entertainment at the movie theatre (assuming a $10 USD movie ticket and a 120 minute movie), but you rarely find Americans going to the movies on a daily basis," Khalaf said. "The picture wasn't very different in 2012 and 2013, in which the average American consumer paid 6.4 and 5.8 times more on cable television than mobile games, respectively."

    The mobile gaming market is expected to grow to approximately $4.2 billion in 2014 from $3 billion the year before, but the number of mobile gamers in the US has increased from 94 million in 2013 to 108 million in 2014, leading to a relatively flat growth for average cost per user. Second, the time-spent in gaming apps increased from approximately 50 minutes in 2013 to approximately 56 minutes in 2014 (a 12% increase). So while the overall market is expected to grow by $1.2 billion, the per-hour cost only grew by 4.7% from 10.5 cents to 11 cents.

    "The good news for the mobile app industry is that, unlike the desktop Web, consumers are already paying for content, mostly in the form of in-app purchases and subscriptions," Khalaf said. "And compared to cable television rates, there is room to grow."

    YouTube ready to shell out big bucks to retain content stars

    YouTube, faced with competition for video talent from Facebook and a start-up called Vessel, is apparently ready to shell out big bucks to retain its content creators.


    Both the social network and Vessel, which is ex-Hulu CEO Jason Kilar's brainchild, among others, have been actively trying to poach YouTube stars, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    The report noted that Google is looking to shore up its talent roster with bonuses to sign multi-year deals for exclusivity and offers to fund additional programming.

    "YouTube has been in a fire drill" led by Robert Kyncl, global head of business, an anonymous source told the paper, adding that Vessel is of particular concern to the video giant. Kilar's company has raised $75 million in venture capital, with a planned launch by the end of the year. Apparently, he's planning on using that cash to compensate its content creators handsomely.

    "I would like to remain on YouTube," said one YouTube content creator. "But some of the competing offers are incredibly attractive."

    But, the parameters of "attractiveness" will ultimately include eyeballs. With more than a billion monthly visitors to its site, YouTube is the undisputed king of video advertising dollars and consumer traffic.

    CTAM launches TV everywhere campaign to boost awareness

    CTAM has launched a consumer awareness campaign, aimed at articulating the benefits and value proposition of TV everywhere.


    The core messaging emphasises the ease of the authenticated sign-in process to verify customer status and clarifies the 'hows' of accessing available content earlier than other online and mobile offerings. There's even a hashtag: #youcouldbewatching.

    "At the vanguard of this strategy was FOX's 'Stream It and Dream It' sweepstakes promotion, wholly conceived by Fox Networks, and supported by all major distributors," said John Lansing, president and CEO of CTAM. "We were thrilled that the timing of the Fox Networks' TV everywhere promotion aligned with the launch of our efforts. As a result, the CTAM-led tactics quickly garnered a unique reach of three million and 56 million total impressions, adding significant promotional value for Fox Networks and the other participating major distributors."

    CTAM is executing the outreach with the Lippin Group, which is working to educate consumers and promote available TVE content in mainstream TV and lifestyle sections, and targeted blog sites. To build a collection of current, approved promotional assets for media placement, CTAM has built a secure e-form that makes it easy for content providers and MSOs to participate.

    Telestream launches vantage cloud encoding platform

    Telestream has launched Vantage Cloud Subscriptions, a transcoding and file-based workflow automation service for Amazon Web Services (AWS) on AWS Marketplace.


    "Vantage Cloud Subscriptions saved the day for us - without this service we would not have had a product to show our customer the next day," said Kasper Holme Johannesen, managing director of Danish home entertainment multimedia supply chain specialist Dicentia, a first customer that used the platform for encoding 20 feature films within a 24-hour period for video-on-demand (VOD) delivery.

    "Installing the Telestream Vantage Cloud Manager software on to our system took around 30 minutes, and once installed you don't notice the difference in operation from our traditional Vantage encoding system," said Bjørn Petersen, part of Dicentia's engineering team. "It provides a seamless add-on to our existing Vantage platform, taking files from our servers and delivering them back once they're completed. It worked perfectly."
