    Taiwan's ELTA TV secures BBC channels, content on-demand

    DetailsRebecca Hawkes | 28 January 2015


    Four BBC channels are to be made available by ELTA TV on Chunghwa Telecom's on-demand IPTV service, in what is being called part of the largest volume deal for UK content in Taiwan.


    BBC World News HD, BBC Knowledge HD, BBC Lifestyle and BBC Entertainment will be joined by a range of BBC's science and natural history programmes on Chunghwa's newly launched documentary pack available on subscription video-on-demand (SVOD), and drama content will air on-demand via ELTA's World Channel.

    Sally Chen, CEO, ELTA TV said the announcement marked "a significant milestone for ELTA TV" as the company tries to make its mark in the new media industry in Taiwan.

    "Viewers in Taiwan can now easily access a multitude of BBC content anytime, anyplace through BBC's channels on Chunghwa, our VOD services and TV programmes on ELTA's World channel," she said.

    Programmes in the deal include the latest series of Top Gear, series five and six of Doctor Who, The Graham Norton Show, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, 24 Hours on Earth, Penguins - Spy In The Huddle and Super Smart Animals.

    David Weiland, EVP, Asia, BBC Worldwide, added: "About 20 months ago, BBC Worldwide restructured to enable us to work more seamlessly across BBC's multiple business lines and offerings, to better serve our regional partners' needs. This deal is an example of how, we are now better able to deliver our high quality content to viewers through multiple platforms.

    "It is also a testament to our on-going commitment to Asia, and of the importance of Taiwan to our growth strategy in the region."

    Netflix picks up pre-K hit, Lily's Driftwood Bay

    Details Michelle Clancy | 28 January 2015


    Netflix is picking up children's preschool series Lily's Driftwood Bay from the Jim Henson Company.


    Henson Independent Properties (HIP), the Jim Henson Company's third-party licensing and distribution label, has concluded a number of broadcast and digital licence deals for the series, including Netflix picking it up for the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland. Additional sales include KiKa in Germany, MTV Oy in Finland, TV New Zealand, TVB in Hong Kong and Radio Television Brunei.

    Lily's Driftwood Bay is a mixed-media animated series for four to six-year-olds, and follows the imaginative adventures of five-year-old Lily who lives in a beach hut with her Dad on an island.

    "We have had a very positive initial response to this unique and charming new animated series, and to have attracted such strong partners is a testament to the quality of the programming," said Richard Goldsmith, EVP of global distribution and international consumer products at the Jim Henson Company. "There will be exciting updates for potential new partners at the Kidscreen Summit about the continued growth and development of this brand."

    The series, created and produced by Northern Ireland's Sixteen South, had its global premiere on Nick Jr in the UK in May 2014, followed shortly thereafter by its US debut on Sprout, and its Australian debut on ABC. The series also airs on Sweden's SVT, Norway's NRK, Ireland's RTEjr and Israel's HOP!

    Lily's Driftwood Bay has just been awarded the Parents' Choice Recommended Award, and was selected by Common Sense Media as one of the Best Kids' TV Shows of 2014.

    NFL and NBC Sports taps Level 3 for Super Bowl video broadcast

    Details Michelle Clancy | 28 January 2015


    The NFL and NBC Sports have tapped Level 3 Communications to support the broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX on 1 February.


    The programming will be supported by Level 3's Vyvx VenueNet+ technology. This is the 26th consecutive year that Level 3 Communications has provided services for the Super Bowl.

    The Super Bowl drew 111.5 million viewers last year, which is the largest audience in television history. This year, the Super Bowl will be hosted at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, which is connected directly to Level 3's fibre-optic network.

    Level 3 will also support NBC broadcasts from downtown Phoenix, which will occur in the days leading up to, and the day of, the event. In total, more than 3,000 hours of video content will be acquired, encoded and transported across Level 3's Vyvx VenueNet+ platform as part of the Super Bowl coverage.

    "We understand that an event this massive comes with incredibly high expectations for a seamless viewing experience," said Mike Meehan, senior vice president of sports operations for NBC Sports Group. "Level 3 has nearly three decades of experience delivering high-profile, global events, and we trust them to provide the reliable performance we need."

    Level 3 will also provide NBC with the video transport it requires to broadcast MSNBC's Morning Joe show from Phoenix in the days leading up to the Super Bowl, along with other Vyvx services to other NBCUniversal properties that will be onsite in Phoenix throughout the week.

    "Each year, the Super Bowl grows and is better than the year before, and that requires an increasingly complex operation to ensure a smooth, uninterrupted broadcast," said Glenn Adamo, vice president of media operations for the NFL. "We have a strong working relationship with Level 3, and each year they've been able to ensure the NFL's millions of football fans receive the best quality broadcast available."

    In addition to delivering the game, Level 3 will also carry the pre-game and post-game feeds to all NFL operations centres; NFL Films in Mt Laurel, NFL Network studios in Culver City, NFL Network Master Control in Atlanta, as well as other broadcast networks and satellite teleport sites for global distribution.

    "There's no larger fan base in the US than that of the NFL, and Level 3 is honoured to enable those fans to enjoy the pinnacle game of the season," said Anthony Christie, chief marketing officer at Level 3. "After 26 years of working with the NFL and broadcasters like NBC, we are well aware of the complexities involved with delivering an event of this magnitude on a global scale. That's why we work in lockstep to plan and execute delivery of the Super Bowl, ensuring a seamless viewing experience for viewers around the world."

    IRIS.TV sees 50% more TV viewing

    Details Michelle Clancy | 28 January 2015


    IRIS.TV is claiming that its Adaptive Stream platform has increased video consumption by 50% across all its clients.

    In general, viewers tend to watch a video and bounce to another site or app. When users are presented with an IRIS.TV stream of recommended videos, they tend to watch four to five times as much content - higher than that typically observed with loyal viewers.

    By integrating Adaptive Stream into their video players and mobile apps, IRIS.TV's clients can deliver relevant streams of video to their viewers; then, viewers' feedback is captured in real-time through interactive buttons, allowing the stream to dynamically adapt to the changing preferences.

    "At IRIS.TV, we have carefully constructed the most dynamic viewing experience to date, allowing users to enhance content consumption and maximise video view inventory for its content publishers," said COO Richie Hyden. "Much like programmatic ad tech has revolutionised the advertising space, IRIS.TV is bringing the future of TV to the present by optimising the delivery of single video assets to users. These results prove that users will increase their consumption when personally relevant content is delivered to them."

    Details Michelle Clancy | 28 January 2015


    Acorn TV, a streaming service focused on bringing British TV to North America, is launching on Samsung Smart TV and Blu-ray players.

    Launched in July 2011, RLJ Entertainment's Acorn TV is also accessible via the website and iPhone/iPad and is using Float Left Interactive's TV application solutions to expand to more devices.

    Acorn holds exclusive North American distribution rights to various British programmes, which are available for streaming on Acorn TV and from Acorn in lavishly packaged DVDs/Blu-rays. And, RLJ Entertainment manages the literary estate of Agatha Christie and owns the period detective series Foyle's War.

    "Given their experience of developing applications across multiple connected platforms and emphasis on providing a premium user experience, Float Left Interactive was a natural choice for us to partner with on our device expansion," said Titus Bicknell, RLJ Entertainment's chief digital officer. "Since Acorn TV has two big US premieres in February with the final season of Foyle's War and the Jamie Dornan miniseries New Worlds, we're excited to add Samsung to our available platforms, so British drama and mystery fans have more ways to watch Acorn TV. We look forward to working with Float Left Interactive to increase our viewership by making Acorn TV, as well as RLJ Entertainment's other proprietary digital channels, UMC – Urban Movie Channel and Acacia TV, available on more platforms."

    Vimeo launches on-demand publisher network

    Details Michelle Clancy | 28 January 2015


    Vimeo has launched the Vimeo On Demand Publisher Network enabling partners to sell premium, ad-free content from its VOD catalogue directly on their sites.


    Launch partners for the service include The Atlantic; CBS Interactive Media Group's TV Guide.com, TV.com and Metacritic; and TEN: The Enthusiast Network.

    Viewers can rent or buy titles directly on a publisher's site through Vimeo's transactional video player.

"And by selling VOD content, the Publisher Network provides additional revenue streams – without advertising – not only for partners, but also for our creators exposed to a wider audience via premium publishers."

    Paris Court of Appeal finds for Aston in Canal Ready case

    Details Editor | 28 January 2015


    In the latest twist in a convoluted legal battle, the Paris Court of Appeal has found for set-top box (STB) manufacturer Aston in its row with French pay-TV giant Canal+.


    Aston works with key partners to develop platforms offering VOD, catch-up TV, connected TV solutions and HbbTV, and also develops advanced solutions for multi-room and multiscreen applications as well as PCMCIA modules and consumer secure CI/CI+ 1.3 CAMs.

    Its row with Canal+ began when Aston contested the unilateral decision of the Canal+ Group to terminate the Canal READY label contract linking the two companies, believing that this decision violated the basic rules of free competition in the market by abusing the market dominance of the Canal+ Group.

    Having taken the issue to Appeal, the Paris court found in favour of Aston and quashed Canal+ Group's termination of the partnership agreement with Aston and Canal+ Group's decision forcing the cessation of the manufacture of Canal READY labelled STBs from 15 October 2014, and also declared null and void Canal+ Group's decision to withdraw Aston's authorisation to sell its existing stock of Canal READY-labelled STBs. The Canal+ Group's decision to stop marketing standalone cards in 2016 also ceases to have effect.

    These suspension orders will remain in force until the final judgment is given concerning the Canal+ Group's alleged abuse of its dominant position.

    In a statement commenting on the decision, Aston said that it continues to defend freedom of choice for consumers, and in particular for subscribers of the Canal+ Group, enabling them to purchase Canal READY-labelled decoders.

    Neotion partners with Verimatrix for broadcast-hybrid CI Plus 1.3 CAM

    Details Editor | 28 January 2015


    French digital TV firm Neotion has integrated the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for Broadcast-Hybrid revenue security solution in its latest generation of CI Plus 1.3 Conditional Access Module (CAM).


    Neotion-VerimatrixBy leveraging their respective technologies, the two companies believe that they can combine broadcast linear content delivery and broadband IP-based interactive services in a single secure CAM.

    The Neotion Advanced Security CAM with VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid directly plugs into any connected CI Plus 1.3 TV set with built-in IP interface, enabling pay-TV operators to augment broadcasting services with new and value-added IP-based services. The companies say that by using the standards-based two-way Internet security protocols, the solution ensures pay-TV operators can connect with any subscriber, representing a secure way to retain control over content and develop new revenue-generating offers.

    Satellite, cable and terrestrial broadcast networks have an IP return path via Internet/broadband network, with the Neotion Advanced Security CAM keeps focusing on broadcast content protection permitting two-way key and entitlement management over IP networks only. Moreover, in a connected environment, the integrated solution allows unicast entitlement while avoiding wasted RF broadcast bandwidth. With no rights/keys broadcast, all entitlements can be managed out-of-band enabling pay-TV operators to develop any value-added IP based services, such as subscriber authentication, key distribution or user control, signalling or any interactive services, with no extra cost.

    Seven-tenths of Russians watch pirated content

    Details Editor | 28 January 2015


    Lack of availability and expensive content are being blamed as the key drivers of a wave of piracy in Russia according to a survey from security expert Irdeto.


    The security technology leader's survey found that as many as 70% of consumers in Russia (70%) watch pirated video content, with 16% watching it more than once a week, revealing that pirated content is much more pervasive than in the US, UK, Australia, Singapore and India, based on previous Irdeto global research.

    In addition, the data showed that in terms of video content, ad-funded services were most popular among respondents who ever watch entertainment content with 43% saying they watch video content through these services most frequently. However, almost a quarter of respondents (23%) primarily use pirate services to watch content. This said, Irdeto found that pirate services are more popular than both subscription services (20%) and pay-per-view (4%) in Russia.

    Assessing the drivers, Irdeto added that the main reason respondents would watch pirated content is that legal content is too expensive, with 39% identifying this as the main reason they would watch pirated content. This was followed by not wanting to wait for official releases (33%) and content not being available locally (24%).

    "The prevalence of piracy in the Russian market is clearly identified by this research, with high content costs, longer windows and lack of availability fuelling the situation," said Andrey Silanchev, business development director Russia and CIS, Irdeto. "While this is partly due to the economic situation, it's clear that operators must make multiscreen and OTT content in this market either ad-funded or very affordable through low subscription fees. Ancillary devices outside the living room are clearly very prevalent in Russia and if pay-TV operators are not fulfilling demand, this is another opportunity for pirated content services."
