    Invitel signals network expansion

    The Hungarian alternative telco and cable operator Invitel has launched a €30 million network development programme in the retail and corporate sectors.

    According to BBJ, it will bring high-speed internet and interactive TV to an additional 120,000 households this year.

    Commenting on the development, CEO David Blunck said: “Invitel was able to double its revenue in the past two years in its two focus segments of business ICT and residential television services”.

    He added that in order to strengthen Invitel?s market position in Hungary they will “speed up the realisation of Invitel?s business strategy.

    Meanwhile, deputy CEO Marianne Langsteiner said she expects more than half a million household to have access to broadband internet by this August.

    With the new network development programme, Invitel’s services should become available in 98 of the country’s largest cities.

    Unitymedia gains 80,000 new Horizon customers

    Germany’s second-largest cable operator Unitymedia has recorded 80,000 new customers for its multimedia box Horizon in Q1 2015 – more than in any other quarter.

    In total, 326,000 households in federal states North-Rhine Westphalia, Hessen and Baden-Württemberg now use the box which the subsidiary of US media company Liberty Global introduced in Germany in September 2013.

    Demand also rises for high internet speeds: More than 60% of all new customers signed up for subscription packages with data rates of 120Mbps or more.

    For its internet access service, Unitymedia reported 35,000 new contracts and for its telephony service 27,000 new contracts. The number of classic cable TV subscriptions dropped by 33,000.

    In total, Unitymedia now has 2.9 million broadband and 2.8 million telephony customers.

    Almost the whole Unitymedia cable network has been upgraded for an internet data rate of 200Mbps since November 2014. The service is now available to more than 12 million households.

    Meanwhile, in Switzerland, internet and telephony have also been the main growth drivers at Liberty Global’s local subsidiary UPC Cablecom. Switzerland’s largest cable operator gained 10,500 new internet customers in Q1 2015. The broadband access service which offers a data rate of up to 250Mbps now has a total of 739,800 customers.

    The number of telephony customers rose by 11,800 to 480,500. The mobile phone service which UPC Cablecom launched one year ago had 14,600 customers on March 31, 2015.

    UPC Cablecom didn’t, however, manage to halt the decline of classic cable TV subscriptions: The number of TV customers went down by 1.2% to 1.37 million customers in Q1 2015.

    Record Horizon TV growth as Liberty Global posts solid Q1

    Rebased revenue growth of 3% to $4.5 billion has been the stand out for cable giant Liberty Global as it posted its first quarter 2015 results.


    For the three-month period ended 31 March 2015, the company's results showed over 150,000 broadband additions and record a quarter for growth in the Horizon TV connected video service. As of 31 March 2015, Liberty was delivering a total of 56 million subscription services — 24.2 million of which were video in nature — to 27.3 million unique customers across its cable footprint of 52.1 million homes passed.

    Customer ARPU increased 5% year-over-year on an FX-neutral basis while overall organic revenue generating unit additions of 68,000 were principally impacted by higher video losses. The results pointed to marked under-performance in Germany, the Netherlands and Ireland.

    Commenting on the results, CEO Mike Fries said: "Although our Q1 subscriber additions were impacted by higher video losses ... consumer appetite for our next-generation services remained strong with 150,000 new broadband subscribers and record Horizon TV additions. Price increases across our footprint contributed to a 5% ARPU increase and provide a foundation for further growth in 2015. We remain in a strong competitive position with our market leading broadband speeds and our advanced video platforms, and expect to add over one million net new RGUs this year."

    Looking as to where growth could come from in the next quarter, Fries noted that the company would be introducing Horizon TV across the former Ziggo footprint in the Netherlands and that the company was already seeing early success in the UK from Virgin's Project Lightning before network construction began in earnest during the second half of 2015.

    Disney sees major audience engagement growth with Radio Disney Music Awards

    Multi-platform viewing was the star of the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards, which increased in consumer engagement across digital, radio and social media in its second year as a televised event.


    Since its 26 April premiere and pre-show on Disney Channel, and through 12 encore linear telecasts on Disney Channel and Disney XD, the music-focused special and its pre-show have reached 11.9 million total viewers, 4.2 million kids 6-11, four million tweens 9-14 and 3.2 million adults 18-49. Consumer engagement was also strong throughout the award voting process with 101 million votes tallied, an increase of 75% over last year.

    The 11.9 million reach does not include the WATCH Disney Channel on-demand audience, which since the air date has attracted 129,000 unique visitors and 207,000 video starts on the TV everywhere app, which allows consumers to watch on tablets, phones, computers and set-top boxes. It also doesn't include consumers who have accessed individual musical performances on apps and YouTube.

    Based on L+3 ratings for linear television alone, the awards improved Disney Channel's total viewer ratings by 11% over the past four weeks (2.10 million vs. 1.89 million).

    The 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards ranked as the day's most social programme on Twitter as well (excluding sports), as 53,000 unique authors produced a unique audience of 1.5 million users, creating 6.1 million impressions, an increase of 144% compared to the previous year's telecast, according to Nielsen Social.

    On the Radio Disney app, it delivered the highest day ever and a 43% increase in unique visitors, radio streams, video starts (75,000) and page views.

    HBO schedules Southern Rites documentary

    HBO is planning an 18 May US premiere of Southern Rites, a documentary that tells the story of two neighbouring towns in Southeast Georgia entrenched in racial tension.


    Directed by photographer Gillian Laub and executive produced by musician John Legend, Troy Carter and Mike Jackson, the 90-minute film examines race relations, a segregated prom, politics and the killing of an unarmed young black man that will forever bind the residents of these two small towns together.

    "With a film as provocative as Southern Rites, creating a platform that inspires dialogue is integral to our promotion of the film," said Lucinda Martinez, SVP of multicultural marketing. "The film is not only the story of the residents in Southeast Georgia but in many towns all over the country. Laub is a compelling storyteller and we're proud to support her work."

    Montgomery County, GA first gained notoriety when Laub visited the small town of 9,000 residents in 2009 to document its proms, which remained segregated despite the integration of schools in 1971. Laub's story went on to run in the New York Times, garnering national attention.

    A year later, Laub returned after the town combined its proms, to document the shift and also highlight an historic election campaign that may lead to its first African-American sheriff.

    While Laub was in town filming, a white resident was charged with the murder of a young black man in Montgomery County's neighbouring town, Toombs County. As the case wears on, it divides locals in both towns along their well-worn racial lines, while the ensuing plea bargain and sentencing uncover complex truths and produce emotional revelations.

    "This is a story that needs to be told," said Laub. "This film is about giving a voice to the people of Montgomery and Toombs counties. This is their narrative. I'm grateful to HBO for their support and the opportunity."

    The film debuts the week of the Supreme Court's landmark Brown vs. Board of Education decision 61 years ago.

    iZotope launches RX Loudness Control

    iZotope has launched RX Loudness Control for broadcasters.


    In many places around the world, television commercials cannot legally be louder than the programming that they're embedded in. The offline plug-in, part of the RX family of post-production products, analyses and renders a mix for loudness compliance on the fly.

    RX Loudness Control automates a historically tedious workflow. iZotope said that audio or video post-production professionals working for broadcast can click once to analyse the audio, and again to comply.

    The plug-in has extensive presets for various loudness standards — including BS.1770-1-3, EBU R128 s1, and ATSC A/85. Users also have the ability to create and save their own presets for a unique television spec if needed. A history graph and loudness report inform the user whether audio is within the appropriate tolerance, and if not, illustrate where overflows may be occurring. In order to both document and prove loudness, loudness history can be exported as a CSV spreadsheet.

    Features include support for surround sound (up to 5.1) and the EBU R128 s1 standard, the ability to generate a .CSV loudness report, direct integration on the Adobe CC platform and as an AudioSuite DPM/AAX plug-in.

    RX Loudness Control is compatible with Avid Media Composer, Avid Pro Tools and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

    YipTV (short for Your Individual, Personalised TV) provides international programming content for $14.99 a month, over any type of wired or wireless broadband connection. YipTV can also be viewed on a traditional TV screen using an Apple TV or a Google Chromecast device.

    Launching with 50 channels, YipTV brings a range of live sports broadcasts from Latin America and Europe, news, comedy, drama and more. In coming months, YipTV will add a number of Spanish- and Portuguese-language channels, and bolster broadcast offerings from Europe, Asia and India, it said.

    At launch, popular channels of note offered by YipTV include: beIN Sports (Global), Hola TV(Spain, Global), Azteca (Mexico, Global), TYC Sports (Argentina, Global), Antenna 3 (Spain & Global), NTN24 (Colombia, Global), RT News (Russia, Global) and Canal Sur (Latin America, Global).

    "Nearly 40 million US citizens have emigrated from another country," said CEO and co-founder Michael Tribolet. "Of that number, more than half are from Latin America and the Caribbean. Another 30 percent are from Asia and 12% from European nations."

    "Advancements in technology have made the world seem smaller and smaller," Tribolet said. "YipTV is now using the latest technology to expand entertainment options and provide value to the customer. We are not just reorganising the way people access channels that have been available for years. With YipTV, people with emotional and family ties overseas can watch programs that they are familiar with at a reasonable price."
