    SeaChange to make 10% of workforce redundant

    SeaChange has announced plans to reduce its global workforce by 10%.

    Staff in the US will leave the VOD platform company immediately, while international employees will benefit from local employment legislation and leave over a period of time.

    In a statement the company said it would save $11 million from the staff reductions, both internally, and by decreasing the use of contractors.

    “SeaChange has delivered on its long-term strategic commitment and ongoing investment to bring a new generation of software products to market and enable a range of innovative IP-based video services for its customers,” said SeaChange CEO Jay Samit. “With Adrenalin and Nucleus established in the marketplace, we can now orient our industry-leading resources toward capturing the lead in additive applications to help our core customers grow revenues and expanding our customer base into new segments such as OTT video services.”

    SeaChange said it was able to streamline its activities now that its latest range of software products had been brought to market.

    Alarab off air just hours after launch

    The newly launched Alarab news channel was off air just hours after it launched from Bahrain on Sunday.

    Programming at the channel owned by Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is still unavailable and at the moment a loop with a promotional video is being shown.

    Alarab promised to bring “an objective, fresh and unbiased view of world events.” True to these words, one of its first broadcasts included a Shiite opponent of Bahrain’s Sunni rulers.

    Commenting on the sudden suspension of its live broadcasts, the channel said on its Twitter account that broadcasting has “stopped for technical and administrative reasons and that it will be back soon.”

    AFP quoted the head of media at Bahrain’s information ministry, Yusuf Mohammed, that “cooperation with Alarab’s administration is ongoing, in order to resume its broadcasts and complete necessary measures as soon as possible.”

    Increasing its current portfolio of soap operas, El Salvador's free-to-air (FTA) channel Canal 4 is to premiere one of the latest successes of Brazil's Globo, following its presentation at NATPE 2015.


    fightorloveThe channel, owned by the Telecorporación Salvadoreña group, will premiere Fight or Love? at the end of February.

    Telefónica's Vivo launches OTT TV everywhere app

    Details Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 04 February 2015


    Taking a part of its pay-TV offer to mobile screens, Telefónica's Brazilian subsidiary, Vivo, is launching a TV everywhere service, including 11 pay-TV signals, through its over-the-top (OTT) app Vivo Play.


    Via the app, which is currently available for iOS and Android and can be downloaded through app stores and the Vivo Play website, users will have access to the live programming from BandNews, Bandsports, Woohoo, Eurochannel, Play TV, Curta!, Fish TV, Chef TV, Bloomberg, Arte1 and Guia Vivo TV.

    In addition to the regular line-up of these channels, the Vivo customers can access a wide catalogue of video-on-demand (VOD) content, both free-to-air and pay-per-view, as well as watching older programming through a catch-up service.

    The app is connected to the Vivo TV Fibra account, thus allowing clients to book or select content on their regular set-top boxes (STB) for viewing later on their tablets or smartphones.

    The TV everywhere platform will be exclusively available for customers of Vivo, which only operates in Sao Paulo city and the metropolitan municipalities of Osasco, Guarulhos, Sao Bernardo, Santo Andre, Sao Caetano, Barueri, Santana de Parniba, Cotia, Diadema, Maua, Taboao da Serra and Carapicuiba, offering 170 pay-TV channels, of which 69 are HD.

    The mobile service aims to continue transforming Vivo into a digital telco, one of the company's main goals for 2014 and 2015. In addition to providing cable infrastructure for TV and Internet connection, Vivo intends to add value to technology in order to increase benefits, such as it did last September by taking a wide soap operas portfolio over-the-top.

    Disney targets streaming video after strong Q1

    Details Joseph O'Halloran | 04 February 2015


    After what was described as an incredibly strong quarter, the Disney Corporation is turning its attention to broadband users who aren't currently subscribing to a pay-TV or cable service.


    DisneyFor its first fiscal quarter ended 27 December 2014, Disney reported revenues of $13.391 billion, up 9% year-on-year, driving a profit of $2.8 billion, itself up 19% compared with the same period in 2013.

    Media Networks contributed $5.6 billion in revenues, climbing 11% on a yearly basis, and amassing a profit of $1.495 billion for the quarter, inching up 3% year-on-year. Of this figure, cable networks provided $4.166 billion in revenues and $1.22 billion in profits, up 11% and down 2% year-on-year respectively. The profit dip was attributed to underperformance at ESPN that was not fully offset by increases at the worldwide Disney Channels and ABC Family. Broadcasting offered $1.694 billion of revenues, an 11% yearly rise, and profits soared 35% year-on-year to $240 million.

    "This was yet another incredibly strong quarter for our company, with diluted EPS up 23% driven by record revenue as well as significant growth in segment operating income," said Robert Iger, The Walt Disney Company CEO. "Our results once again reflect the strength of our brands and high quality content and demonstrate that our proven franchise strategy creates long-term value across all of our businesses." On the results' earnings call Iger added that Disney was seriously considering the launch of online video services for non-subscribers to cable TV services. "There is definitely an opportunity not just for ESPN but for other Disney brands to ultimately put a product in the marketplace that reach consumers directly. We think we have that opportunity with a Disney-branded service," he said.

    Sony offers YouView embedded within TV range

    Details Joseph O'Halloran | 04 February 2015


    With set-top-box (STB) issues one of anumber of factors delaying the launch of the subscription-free on-demand service, YouView has now burst out of the box and onto Sony TVs.


    Sony YouViewIn a win-win for both parties, the CE giant has become the first TV maker to offer YouView built-in to a TV set, available in its new 2015 BRAVIA range. YouView will be on offer from Summer 2015, and will be combined with Android TV and Sony's One-Flick Entertainment giving users access to content ranging from on-demand services, films, music, photos, games, apps and more.

    As it aims to spread its UK reach to ten million homes, YouView added in November 2014 a direct link to the Netflix subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service through its EPG, complementing its range of services which now include all the major UK on-demand players — including the BBC iPlayer, 4OD, ITV Player and Demand 5 — as well as Milkshake, UKTV, Quest from Discovery, NOW TV from Sky and Sky Store.

    "We are thrilled to announce a major collaboration with Sony on our first ever project to make YouView available on TVs," commented YouView CEO Richard Halton. "This exciting YouView and Sony partnership will create a deep integration of YouView's functionality within the new Sony TV range, built on the Android platform. It will offer everything you'd expect from YouView including our iconic seamless and easy to use TV guide, giving customers simple access to the live and catch-up TV they love."

    John Anderson, Sony UK and Ireland country head, added: "The way we watch TV is changing, with more demand than ever for a large range of content, when we want it, how we want it. We're delighted to be the first manufacturer in the UK to announce the addition of YouView to our range of TVs."

    Telefónica picks Grey Juice Lab for VOD content

    Details Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 04 February 2015


    Chosen by Telefónica as content aggregator for its video-on-demand (VOD) platforms in Chile and Argentina, Grey Juice Lab will become an exclusive partner of the Spanish telco in Latin America.

    Grey Juice Lab will provide Telefónica with movies from Hollywood studios, as well as independent production companies, children's content and adult movies for Argentina's On Video and Chile's Movistar Play. Several movies will be available within a few months of their theatrical release, with Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, the new Minions movie, Terminator and Taken 3 coming in the next few months.

    Grey Juice Lab will also provide Telefonica with marketing services to maximise the value of the added content, as well as content processing, quality control and editorial services.

    "We were looking for an aggregator which could both offer the best content possible and also take care of all the needs for the operation," said Julián Rodríguez Montero, director of content acquisition for Telefónica Group. "We found the perfect partner in Grey Juice Lab, thanks to its flexibility and expertise in this market."

    Telefónica Argentina is among the country's market leaders with On Video, which has over 80,000 subs, and in recent months has launched Lite, a service that allows all of its Speedy broadband users to rent movies from any device connected to the Internet.

    Telefónica Chile is expanding with its Movistar Play service, which is connected to Telefónica's pay-TV platform Movistar TV.

    "We are really excited to be working with Telefonica on these great services. High quality content plays a crucial role in providing a high service level to subscribers," commented Mihai Crasneanu, CEO of Grey Juice Lab. "However, content aggregation is not just about negotiating content agreements or ingesting movies. It's also about getting the operational side right, and Telefonica understands that."

    Colombia's unregulated communal aerials drive pay-TV piracy

    Details Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 05 February 2015


    While several companies and associations have been highlighting the problem of unregulated pay-TV signals transmitting via communal aerials, Business Bureau's latest report has quantified the problem in Colombia, a market with eight million subs.

    According to the research company, out of the 674 community aerials audited in Colombia from August to December 2014, 326 were illegally receiving and broadcasting pay-TV signals. By law, a community is allowed to have up to 6,000 members.

    "The expansion and popularity of communal aerials has always been a well known secret in Colombia," explained Horacio Gennari, president and founder of Business Bureau. "We don't want to be subjects of controversy, but deliver the industry and the telecom authorities a detailed report of how many aerials there are and how they work."

    From the 674 registered aerials, only 507 are actually active and more than half of these are illegally receiving the signals of seven or more premium networks, which are then distributed to the community.

    "The communal aerials were born in concrete political, social and economic circumstances, but, through the years, the practice has been changing and many of these aerials are managed in the same way as a cable operator, even charging similar fees to deliver TV signals to the home," added Gennari.

    According to the report, the signals with highest presence in the communal aerials through the country are Discovery Channel and TNT.

    Colombia is one of the largest pay-TV markets in Latin America with over 60% penetration. When it comes to piracy, the country is below the regional average, but still Business Bureau calculates a 15% piracy rate and 11% under-reporting in the country.
