    CCTV, DD enter shared content, co-production arrangement

    DetailsRebecca Hawkes | 18 May 2015

    State broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with its Indian counterpart, Doordarshan (DD), for the exchange of TV content, co-production and staff training.


    The MoU follows the extended cooperation agreed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang from films to television co-productions. It was signed by Jawahar Sircar, CEO of Prasar Bharati - which operates DD - and CCTV president Nie Chen Xi.

    The agreement will, by the end of 2015, enable DD and CCTV to share content, without charge, from the genres of art, culture, education, science, agriculture, entertainment, tourism, sports, news and current affairs, as well as human interest, development and success stories.

    DD and CCTV will also jointly produce TV programmes on areas of mutual interest, including documentaries on the travels of Fa Xian and Hieun Tsang to India.

    Training opportunities for creative and technical staff will be encouraged through exchange and bilateral visits of DD and CCTV personnel, the broadcasters said.

    UP TV partners with the American Black Film Festival

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 18 May 2015

    UP TV is partnering with the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) on a new initiative designed to generate content as part of the network's expansion of original scripted and unscripted series for multicultural audiences.


    Called UP Flips the Script to Series: Remixing the Development Pipeline, the new initiative replaces the five-year run of the UP Faith & Family Screenplay Competition, which generated five feature-length films for UP.

    "It's a natural transition to shift the focus of our ABFF partnership from screenplays to series development since we have ramped up our production of high quality, entertaining original scripted series, like our first original scripted series Ties That Bind, and our unscripted hit reality series, Bringing Up Bates," said Amy Winter, executive vice president and general manager at UP. "Based on the tremendous response and high quality of work that we saw in the screenplay competition, we are extremely confident this new partnership will generate some outstanding series ideas and scripts. We are looking for content that will resonate with our audience and their desire to see highly entertaining series they can feel good about watching whether by themselves or with their whole family."

    Content creators with unique and original series concepts that entertain and uplift are invited to submit ideas. All submissions made by that time will be reviewed and three submitters will be selected to meet with management.

    Hispanic TV positions for OTT

    DetailsGabriel Miramar-Garcia | 18 May 2015

    Opportunity is knocking in the competitive US Hispanic market, especially for operators who can offer cost-effective and reliable solutions, according to industry veteran Tom Mohler.


    "There's a $9 billion market, which means there are about 13 million Spanish-dominant homes, and most of these do not have pay-TV due to a lack of credit," explained the Olympusat CEO and president at the recent INTX Breakfast panel on multicultural TV and OTT. "There is a huge potential in reaching those customers and creating a double play by offering OTT alternative packaging that doesn't require credit. OTT is huge in this $9 billion market; we can expect massive growth in the next 24 months."

    Mohler emphasised that there is a high correlation between DSL/broadband consumers and Hispanic homes. The challenge for operators is offering the Hispanic consumer immediate and direct access to Spanish-language programming at low-cost deals. "The question is not about Internet access or speed. The question is how fast DSL and telephone companies can work aggressively to improve DSL connections. In terms of financing and cost to consumers, it's about providing a product at a reasonable cost," he said.

    Advanced screen technologies crucial to Ultra HD adoption

    DetailsEditor | 18 May 2015

    As it enters a key period, Ultra UD's chances of success will be driven by high dynamic range (HDR), wider colour gamut, high frame rates and immersive audio, says ABI Research.


    In its First Screen Video Devices Market Research, note the analyst says that by 2020, when there will be commercial 4KTV services, as many as nearly 70% of Ultra HD TVs will support some, if not all, of these enhancements. Indeed it observed that this could prove too conservative a figure if a lower tier of Ultra HD TVs does not persist as currently anticipated.

    "Display manufacturers are devoting more attention to better pixels as Ultra HD resolution is now expected on all high-end and increasingly mid-tier sets as well," commented ABI principal analyst Michael Inouye. "Displays using quantum dots, for instance, have garnered praise for vibrant and more life-like colours. For early Ultra HD adopters whose TVs don't support the new technologies, these new innovations might come as a sour pill, but in the long run these enhancements will produce the greatest wow factor for new display purchasers who view supported content. It will also serve as a mechanism for device manufacturers to better separate a premium tier of products."

    Looking at the market in general, ABI expects advancements within in the Ultra HD market to only start to fully solidify in 2016. It noted that a number of HDR proposals — from the likes of Dolby, Philips, Technicolor and the BBC — are in the works, as are Ultra HD standards, while content developers and manufacturers are still establishing early stage alignments around these proposed technologies. The analyst also cited the Blu-ray Disc Association releasing its Ultra HD Blu-ray specifications and work by groups such as the UHD Alliance, SMPTE, ITU, MPEG, DIGITALEUROPE and EBU.

    "Higher resolution content is already available through limited releases and more is on the way, but if the market is to reach its full potential the enhancements to Ultra HD will have to play a significant role," added ABI practice director Sam Rosen. "Resolution might be the easiest element to communicate to consumers but the enhancements will provide the most compelling case to seek higher end devices and pay for premium content above and beyond full HD. Upscaling resolution at the client device or display is already common, but the same can't be said for HDR or expanded colour space. Retail displays will also create ideal side-by-side comparisons to better showcase the transformative effects of these enhancements."

    Connected TVs to drive OTT past 300MN subs by 2019

    DetailsEditor | 18 May 2015

    Demand for choice within the over-the-top (OTT) sector is about to initiate an almost fourfold increase in subscriptions over a five-year period according to Juniper Research.


    In its latest research, Mobile and Online TV & Video: OTT, IPTV and Connected Markets 2015-2019, Juniper calculates that OTT subscriber numbers for services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime will increase from 92.1 million in 2014, to 332.2 million globally by 2019.

    Despite the huge popularity of second screens, in particular mobile devices, Juniper found that consumers will favour connected TVs as their primary screen, driven by a trend for watching long-form video on OTT subscription services. It also found that with the long lifecycle of TVs, previously so-called 'dumb' TVs will see an upsurge in becoming 'connected' due to the cost-effectiveness of devices such as Chromecast and Amazon's Fire TV Stick.

    Adding further fuel will be the high uptake of games consoles and set-top boxes (STBs) that provide pre-loaded services. This is in contrast to smart TVs, which, asserts the analyst, currently offer poor operating systems and user interfaces.

    The research also revealed that spend on video-on-demand (VOD) services will likely grow almost fourfold by 2019, with the Far East and China dominating the market by the end of the forecast period. In addition, IPTV subscriber numbers are forecast to grow by over 70% between 2014 and 2019.

    Juniper sees continued growth in the North American market see it remain as the leading region in terms of subscriber numbers, but closely followed by the Far East, as this region emerges with new services and increased consumer interest.

    Ukraine strikes blow at Russian stations

    The Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) has in a second reading adopted amendments to the country’s laws ‘On Advertising’ and ‘On Television and Radio’.

    Addressing advertising in programmes and foreign broadcasts, they are aimed at reducing the level of foreign advertising, growing the Ukrainian advertising market and bringing it in line with European standards. These steps should allow Ukrainian broadcasters to become more competitive.

    The amendments will see the imposition of a ban on advertising carried by foreign broadcasters and transmissions by foreign broadcasters if those broadcasters are not subject to the jurisdiction of the EU or have not ratified the European Convention on Transfrontier Television.

    They will particularly hit TV services operated by Russia, which is neither a member of the EU nor has signed the convention.

    In the case of foreign and TV services from outside the EU or countries that have ratified the convention, broadcast advertising will only be permissible when it is paid for by legal entities in Ukraine.

    The amendments will also see the imposition of a limit of 15% per hour for broadcast time allocated to advertising and teleshopping. For radio, this limit will be 20%.

    The amendments in addition authorise the regulator (Rada) to require foreign broadcaster to compile a list of programmes that meet the legal requirements of Ukraine and the European Convention on Transfrontier Television.

    The amendments will come into effect two months after their publication.

    Cable internet drives Kabel Deutschland

    Broadband internet access has been the main growth driver for Kabel Deutschland the last 12 months. Germany’s largest cable operator gained 450,000 new internet customers between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015 – considerably more than in the previous year (349,000).

    The figure contains 77,000 customers who have migrated from the ADSL network of parent company Vodafone to the more powerful internet connection via cable. In total, Kabel Deutschland now has 2.6 million internet customers.

    Half of the new customers opt for high-speed access with 100Mbps which is now available almost on the entire cable network. Around 2 million households can access 200Mbps.

    The number of premium TV customers (pay-TV and DVR) rose by 224,000 to 2.5 million. 2.1 million customers have signed up for reception of the commercial ad-supported free-to-air TV channels in HD quality for an extra monthly fee (previous year: 1.7 million). A total of 70 HD channels are now available on the Kabel Deutschland network.

    The cable company increased its turnover by 6.3% to €2.02 billion while the EBITA rose by 3.3% to €939 million. The net profit amounted to €239 million following a loss of €68 million in the previous year due to the takeover by Vodafone.
