    Cable & Wireless wins Olympics rights for the Caribbean


    Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) has been named the official broadcast sponsor and exclusive telecoms partner of the 2016 Rio Olympics for the pan-Caribbean.


    The company has secured the Olympic content rights to all platforms in 20 English-speaking countries, as well as non-exclusive rights in ten non-English-speaking countries throughout the region.

    In addition to the Olympic coverage, CWC will provide its customers with live video feeds and data services offered across TV, mobile, radio and Internet streams, featuring interviews, profiles and live-action footage of local Caribbean athletes.

    "We are proud to have this opportunity to bring a more enriched Olympic experience to our region," said John Reid, recently appointed president of CWC's Consumer Group. "The Olympic games are a fitting choice as the first major sponsorship of our combined company, and build upon a foundation of grass roots support for athletes, while setting the bar for future sports programming across the Caribbean. I can't think of a more relevant way to demonstrate the value of our merger than by offering exclusive, multi-platform coverage, featuring Olympic content."

    "Our goal has always been to give Caribbean athletes the broadest exposure possible of their participation in the 2016 Olympics in Rio. CBI's agreement with CWC is an important step in achieving this goal and ensures that our objective to maximise the Olympic experience for Caribbean viewers will be realised," added Steve Stoute, chairman of CANOC Broadcasting Inc (CBI), a subsidiary of the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees, with which CWC inked the deal.

    4KTV panel shipments surge in April 2015

    TV vendors stocking up 4K panels have provided a welcome spur to a generally static display panel segment says research from Wits View.


    105 inch CURVED UHD Tcober pic 2VThe TrendForce division found that overall the combined shipments of the six largest panel makers in April totalled 19.68 million units, an 8% month-on-month decline but a 5.4% increase compared with the same period in the previous year. Among the vendors, only SDC maintained about the same shipment level as with the previous month, whereas the other five saw shipment decline.

    The WitsView's shipment forecast also highlighted that the expected spike from Chinese Labour Day sales fell short of realisation yet the good news was that excess panel capacity was being consumed by TV brand vendors stocking up 4K and large-size panels. The data showed that the six largest panel makers shipped a combined total of 3.1 million units with the penetration rate of the 4K panels in the overall panel market in April reaching 16%, a 4.4% percentage point increase compared with March.

    WitsView added that TV brand vendors' changing product strategies were driving the 4K panel market, where SDC enjoyed what it called an 'outstanding' 25% brand penetration in April. LGD, AUO, and Innolux by contrast saw 15% in their respective brand penetration

    Fundamentally, WitsView believes that the overall shipment performance in the second quarter would be determined mainly by the results of the 4K/Ultra HD market and large-size panels rather than the total shipment volume. It pointed to indicators showing that since the start of 2015, international TV brands have shifted their focus to innovative and high-margin products with value-added features. In terms of size category, 55-inch panels were still the most demanded with a monthly shipment increase of 35%. 4KTV panels sized 48 inches, 49 inches, and 65 inches also posted monthly growths of 20.8%, 34.5%, and 5% respectively.

    Parks: OTT account-sharing tops 11%

    A full 11% of US households are using other people’s accounts (i.e. are unpaid consumers) for digital video.


    Digital media consumer research from Parks Associates reports that while 57% of US broadband households access an over-the-top (OTT) video subscription, account sharing is a lingering challenge. The research shows that 11% of Netflix subscribers, 10% of Hulu Plus subscribers and 5% of Amazon Prime Instant Video subscribers are using an account paid for by someone else. Account sharing is highest among younger households, where 22% of those 18-24 who use an OTT service use a subscription paid by someone outside of their household. This OTT account-sharing research includes OTT services that are independent of pay-TV services.

    "OTT video accounts for a disproportionate amount of content consumed when compared to expenditure — over one-third of video consumed per week is OTT, but it is only 9% of the household video budget," said Brett Sappington, director of research, Parks Associates. "Account sharing is part of the larger problem in monetising the strong consumer demand for OTT content.”

    Overall, 8% of US broadband households are using a subscription OTT video account held by someone outside of their home, and 6% are exclusively using shared accounts to access subscription OTT video content.

    "In terms of hours of consumption per dollar spent, consumers have every reason to shift spending to online video,” Sappington said. “While the all-you-can-eat subscription model is very popular, several OTT services are experimenting with models that blend advertising, subscription, and transactional options. Pay-TV providers will have to quickly move up the OTT learning curve, which is very different from the traditional pay-TV environment."

    La Liga stays on Spanish TV screens

    La Liga BBVA and La Liga Adelante will keep playing on schedule for TV stations and broadcasters worldwide, after the strike threatened by Spain's footballers and football federation (RFEF) was called off.


    The problems started when the Spanish government gave the green light to collective TV rights, giving power to La Liga to negotiate with broadcasters for the whole competition, instead of negotiating club by club, as it's currently done. Then, La Liga would share the collected amount among the clubs, following the new regulation.

    Although most clubs were satisfied about the law, the footballers and RFEF felt their opinions were not being considered by the government, and called a strike for the last two rounds of La Liga and second division B's play-offs.

    After also being pressed by both UEFA and FIFA, it was finally Spain's national high court that decided to suspend the strike, understanding the strike was only political and didn't attend to football players' working rights, and this was not enough reason to leave La Liga without an end.

    Still, the conflict between players organised in a single union, federation, clubs and La Liga seems to be open, as yet there is one more season to be played before the collective rights law applies.

    ICE integrates Cable Visión into residential offer

    It has taken more than two years, but at last Costa Rica's public telco, the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), has decided to fully integrate Cable Visión's offer into its own residential service Kölbi after buying the cable company in 2013.


    According to a short public communication through Cable Visión's Facebook profile profile, the platform has become a part of Kölbi Hogar, promising to keep delivering the same entertainment content, but now being a part of a larger platform with more telecom services.

    Although the acquisition was completed in 2013, it was close to being killed off by the market's watchdog, the Superintendencia de Telecomunicaciones (Sutel), due to concerns regarding spectrum ownership.

    The Sutel has recently denied a similar merging authorisation between Millicom's Tigo and Telecable, due to the high concentration within the pay-TV market if the merger took place.
