    Carrefour launches UltraViolet video service

    Details Editor | 28 January 2015


    The second biggest retailer in the world, Carrefour, has launched France Nolim Films, a new multi-platform entertainment service based on the UltraViolet digital locker.


    NOLIMPowered thanks to a partnership with OTT platform provider Saffron Digital, Nolim will enable customers to buy and rent TV shows and films, including the latest Hollywood blockbusters, to watch wherever and whenever they choose.

    The service will be available initially on smartphones, tablets, televisions and computers, and customers will be able to rent and/or buy UltraViolet and non-UltraViolet content that will be automatically added to their digital library. They can then stream the purchased content directly to their connected devices or downloaded for offline playback. Nolim Films will also enable customers to redeem UltraViolet codes. This will give them free digital copies of movies purchased on DVD or Blu-ray Discs that have the UltraViolet logo on the package. All purchased UltraViolet content will then appear in a customer's UltraViolet locker alongside all other UltraViolet purchases.

    "Our clients' consumption habits are constantly evolving. With Nolim Films, we will address their expectations and new uses of video," commented Noël Prioux, executive director of Carrefour France. "This new offer is part of the brand's digital strategy, which relies on the complementarity of our distribution channels."

    Talking about his company's contribution to the new service, Jason Keane, CEO of Saffron Digital said: "We are delighted to be involved in the launch of such a monumental service. As well as offering its customers a new and exciting entertainment experience, Carrefour is securing its place as one of the world's leading entertainment retailers. As one of the biggest UltraViolet services to launch in Europe, Nolim Films will no doubt be instrumental in driving digital media adoption throughout the region."

    Vodafone to drop Kabel Deutschland brand

    The Kabel Deutschland brand will disappear this year, Jens Schulte-Bockum, CEO of Vodafone Deutschland, told German business newspaper Handelsblatt.

    “We are currently preparing the detailed plans for this move. The name Vodafone will in future also stand for competence in cable,” said Schulte-Bockum.

    Vodafone acquired Kabel Deutschland in autumn 2013 for almost €11 billion. In July 2014, the company confirmed that the Kabel Deutschland brand will eventually be removed in favour of Vodafone, but didn’t give further details.

    Eurosport France leaves DTT

    Eurosport France has terminated its distribution on the French pay-TV DTT network on January 21, 2015 following green light by media authority CSA to hand back its DTT slot.

    The reason for the move is the change in Eurosport France’s shareholders. The channel is currently owned 80% by French commercial broadcaster TF1 and 20% by Discovery Communications,
    majority owner of Eurosport International since June 2014.

    The US media group will soon increase its stake in Eurosport France to 51%. The take-over of the controlling interest prompts the channel’s DTT retreat: The shareholding of a non-European company in a TV channel distributed terrestrially in France must not exceed 20%.

    In addtion, there might be a business reason from withdrawing from the TNT network; Eurosport was offered as a ‘low pay’ channel, a business model which does not seem to work in France for digital terrestrial, as is testifeied by a number of closures of such channels, including kids channel Canal J, Groupe AB’s AB1, while more recently, TF1’s LCI, Première and Planete+ asked to be moved from pay to free-to-air distribution. In December, TF6 terminated its broadcasts.

    At the moment, the French TNT network continues to offer the following pay channels: Paris Premiere, Planete+, LCI (news) and the Canal+ channels, Canal+ Cinema and Canal+ Sport.

    Ericsson bolsters MENA business with twofour54 playout

    DetailsEditor | 02 February 2015


    Ericsson has beefed up its business relationship with the commercial arm of the Abu Dhabi Media Zone Authority, twofour54, through the acquisition of its current playout business.


    The agreement, which will see Ericsson initially providing playout services for nine different channels, recognises the important role of the private sector in supporting twofour54 in building Abu Dhabi's media industry ecosystem.

    "Twofour54 is committed to the growth of the media industry across the MENA region,' commented twofour54 CEO Noura Al Kaabi. "This long-term partnership with Ericsson is another step towards achieving our goal of being the region's leading developer of a sustainable, private sector led media industry."

    Ericsson regards the acquisition as providing an ideal springboard for its expansion into the region from its base in Abu Dhabi whereby it will establish a media hub to serve clients across the Middle East region and beyond.

    As well as playout services, the hub will act as Ericsson's local base to eventually offer services such as content management, over-the-top (OTT), content discovery, metadata, creative and access services. Ericsson added that it would also work closely with twofour54 to develop media services in Abu Dhabi and nurture the development of media professionals in the region.

    "The Middle East is an exciting, high-growth region with a strong local and international broadcaster base," added Thorsten Sauer, Ericsson's head of broadcast and media services. "As the TV industry is witnessing a massive transformation in light of the convergence between IT, media and telecoms, Ericsson is helping broadcasters to overcome the challenges of this transformation and the fierce competition that exists in the rapidly changing TV market. The partnership with twofour54 is an important milestone in our ambition to provide industry-leading media services in this dynamic region."
