    Mediapro races across LATAM with Monaco Grand Prix in HD

    Probably the most famous and followed Formula One event of the season, the Monaco Grand Prix will be airing in HD from today (21 May) until Sunday on Mediapro's F1 Latin America channel through the region's main operators.


    The sixth race of the season, which so far sees British driver Lewis Hamilton in the lead, will be covered by over 20 hours of live programming, including the qualifying rounds and the Grand Prix itself, as well as coverage of the glamorous celebrity events taking place around the race.

    After launching in LATAM just before the season started, the Mediapro channel will be taking the Monaco Grand Prix to Argentina (DirecTV, CCC Tucuman), Costa Rica (Sky, Cabletica), Chile (DirecTV), Colombia (DirecTV), Ecuador (DirecTV), Guatemala (Sky), Mexico (Sky, Izzi Telecom), Nicaragua (Sky), Panama (Cableonda, Sky), Peru (DirecTV), the Dominican Republic (Sky), Uruguay (DirecTV, Nuevo Siglo, TCC) and Venezuela (DirecTV).

    The channel will be also airing Directo Fórmula, a special programme analysing the race, commenting on the season and showing drivers' press conferences, paying special attention to the Latin American drivers Sergio Checo Perez, Pastor Maldonado and Felipe Massa.

    Sunset+Vine scores Channel 5 Football League highlights show deal

    In a deal that will bring 80 hours of programming to UK broadcaster Channel 5 each season, UK super indie Sunset+Vine has won production rights for the highlights show of the English Football League.


    The league comprises three divisions sitting below the fabled English Premier League (EPL), promotion to which will have unprecedented importance, and hopefully viewer interest, in the forthcoming season as the promoted teams from Football League Championship will be the first to cash in from the new Premier League mega deal starting in the 2016/17 season.

    Sunset+Vine's three-year contract covers the production of 46x90-minute highlights shows to broadcast at 9pm on Channel 5 on Saturday nights throughout the season starting in August 2015. Each show will feature footage, including every single goal, from matches in all three divisions of the Sky Bet Football League. It will also produce a further three one-hour shows covering each round of the end of season play-offs across all three divisions in the Football League, plus eight one-hour highlights shows covering the action from each round of the Capital One Cup.

    The shows will be produced for Sunset+Vine by executive producer Stephen Booth and series producer Pete Thomas, with match footage to be filmed, edited and supplied by the Football League's new production partner ITN Productions.

    Sky Italia taps Roku to enable Online TV Box service

    Leveraging its equity investment in online video device manufacturer Roku, Sky Italia has launched TV Box to turn any TV set into a smart TV capable of carrying its pay-TV services.


    Plugging into a HDMI port on a TV set, the device allows for contract-free streaming access to the provider's sports, film and entertainment services as well as partner apps such as Spotify, Facebook, Vevo, Vimeo and Red Bull TV.

    "Pay-TV in Italy still has wide growth margins and with Sky Online TV Box we think we'll be able to reach out an even broader Italian audience and bring them a selection of Sky's quality content, those we have been delivering for 12 years, by addressing new and different audience targets from the families who choose to subscribe to Sky to enjoy the most engaging and richest viewing experience in Italy," commented Sky Italia CEO Andrea Zappia.

    "TV has never been so beautiful. The quality and range of content we now offer is the best ever thanks to our home-grown productions, and also to the widest exclusive offering of TV Series and films from the United States: from Disney to 20th Century Fox, from Sony all the way to Paramount, as well as the best Italian productions. Today streaming TV can boast over 1.5 million users in Italy, people who want to enjoy quality TV with the user experience that only Sky can offer. And such a base is expected to rapidly grow in the future and thanks to a simple, versatile and innovative device such as the TV Box, Sky Online will make its contribution to the development of this sector and we are convinced it will do so as a leader".

    Comcast, PBS partner to double on-demand programming

    US public broadcaster PBS and cableco Comcast have extended their content partnership to more than double the amount of the former's programming on the Xfinity On Demand platform.


    The expansion will see more than 50 PBS series — including Downton Abbey on Masterpiece, American Masters, Antiques Roadshow, Frontline, Nova and more — on Xfinity On Demand, and also the addition of new PBS titles to Xfinity TV Go platforms.

    The expanded agreement will also provide PBS with increased promotional opportunities across Xfinity TV platforms, as well as enhanced branding for local PBS member stations on Xfinity On Demand within the menu.

    "We are pleased that this new agreement recognises public television's unique structure and gives prominent branding to local member stations as the source of PBS content in their respective markets," said Ira Rubenstein, senior vice president and general manager, PBS Digital. "Offering an enhanced selection of PBS programming on highly engaged platforms like Xfinity On Demand is a great way to help grow our audience, introduce new viewers to our programming and offer new promotional opportunities. We are glad that our viewers — who we know are increasingly looking for on-demand content — will have even more opportunity to watch the programmes they love."

    "Comcast and PBS have a longstanding relationship built around a commitment to providing the viewers we both serve with access to the content they want across devices," added Comcast Cable vice president, content acquisition, Franz Kurath. "Xfinity On Demand and Xfinity TV Go are go-to sources for customers who want to catch up and stay current on their favourite TV shows, and the addition of PBS' original programming brings even more high-quality, award-winning programming to the platforms."

    Arris data-based platform to enable targeted ads, better recommendation

    Although still on beta, Arris is preparing a new platform for broadcasters and programmers based on big data and automatic temporal metadata creation which will enable a new level of targeted advertising and content recommendation for users.


    Unveiled during Arris' Video Leadership Forum (VLF) held in Dublin this week, the platform aims to use the power of data to create a new video experience. According to Andy Aftelak, VP of advanced research at Arris, the company intends to use data as one of the ways of creating new value around content.

    Aftelak explained that the keys are temporal metadata - all the data regarding what's happening in the video second by second - and big data analysis, gathering all the information surrounding the video (such as social activity) and finding a path through it.

    One of the problems Arris faces, it's the creation of temporal metadata, which so far are manually included in the video after frame-by-frame analysis. The company is currently developing an automatic platform to analyse the video and create temporal metadata, thus becoming the process easier and more affordable for programmers and broadcasters.

    As it was showed at the VLF event, once all data are collected, a powerful searching tool is enabled, capable of finding a concrete value in both audio and video within seconds.

    A final platform based on such a searching tool and adding big data analysis will be able to include in the content, for instance, mark ads for over-the-top (OTT) and video-on-demand (VOD) platforms or trigger ads related to what's happening on the screen.

    Globovision shrugs off Venezuela's political pressures

    Amidst Venezuela's stringent press regulations and political pressures, the television news network, Globovisión, has been described as having "no significant bias in favour of the government or the opposition" by a recent study published by American University's Centre for Latin American and Latino Studies (CLALS).


    The report, Bias or Neutrality? An Assessment of Television News Coverage in Venezuela by Globovisión, was released at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, by CLALS' director Eric Hershberg and his team of research fellows Michael McCarthy and Michael Danielson, experts in Venezuelan and Latin American politics. The research carried out an examination covering the period from the autumn of 2013 through to the summer of 2014.

    Through quantitative and qualitative analysis, the researchers examined 88 hours of Globovisión's primary weekday and weekend evening news programmes that aired over four distinct periods of time identified as "critical junctures". They included the 2013 municipal elections, opposition street demonstrations in early 2014, international efforts to convene talks between the government and opposition in the spring of 2014, and the shortages of basic goods during the summer of 2014.

    Overall, in spite of some missing information, the study states that Globovisión "covered the most important issues and problems facing the country".

    Shifting away from the previous ownership's overtly pro-opposition perspective, the study establishes that Globovisión under present ownership provided balanced coverage of the issues facing Venezuela today. When new owners came to the network in summer 2013, a wave of lay-offs and resignations placed the channel in a delicate situation.

    VivoPlay OTT goes for SmartboxTV multi-device platform

    Venezuelan over-the-top (OTT) platform VivoPlay is to migrate to the SmartboxTV's multi-device solution, launching on its TV everywhere platform Nunchee, in a bid to enrich its content.


    The announcement, during the NexTV Summit South America 2015 last week in Buenos Aris, will enable the nearly 55,000 users of VivoPlay in Colombia, Argentina, Venezuela and Chile to access a new interactive level with the player.

    "The only way of making the difference is to segment the content offer," said VivoPlay's CEO and president, Carlos Hullet. "Through this new agreement, we will take VivoPlay's users to a new level of interaction, increasing engagement and improving user experience".

    "Our platform offers a much simpler product, which increases the conversation with the user," added Rafael López, CEO at SmartboxTV. "In addition, we are about to launch a new feature to be supported by Roku's set-top boxes".

    Launched last year, VivoPlay saw strong growth during Brazil's World Cup and Chile's Festival de la Canción de Viña del Mar, during which it partnered with Octoshape in order to offer multi-screen delivery. In addition to live events, it includes video-on-demand (VOD) content led by Caracol and Telemundo's soap operas.

    Sky Italia launches Online TV Box

    Sky Italia has launched an OTT platform enabling viewers to access its premium service directly through the internet without the need for cable, satellite or IPTV.

    The introduction of the Sky Online TV Box follows the launch of a similar service in Germany last October. The set-top was developed by Sky in cooperation with Roku.

    Until now, Sky Online was only available on PCs, tablets, game consoles, and some smart TV sets, but the introduction of a dedicated set-top box makes access with an internet connection possible on any TV set.

    “Pay-TV in Italy still has wide growth margins and with Sky Online TV Box we think we’ll be able to reach out an even broader Italian audience and bring them a selection of Sky’s quality content, those we have been delivering for 12 years, by addressing new and different audience targets from the families who choose to subscribe to Sky to enjoy the most engaging and richest viewing experience in Italy,” said Andrea Zappia, CEO of Sky Italia.

    “TV has never been so beautiful.

And such a base is expected to rapidly grow in the future and thanks to a simple, versatile and innovative device such as the TV Box, Sky Online will make its contribution to the development of this sector and we are convinced it will do so as a leader”.

    Sky Online TV Box is available at €49.99 with one month of Sky Cinema and Entertainment included and the possibility to view both tickets at only €1 for the second month. After the second month customers will be able to choose, contract-free, what to watch: Cinema, Entertainment or Sport event-per-event.

    The TV Box can be purchased online from Sky, on Amazon.it, in Euronics, Feltrinelli, Mediaworld, Mondadori and Unieuro stores and in Mediaworld best point of sales.

    Sky Online TV Box also gives access from the store to other partner apps, including Facebook, Spotify, Vevo, Vimeo, Red Bull TV, Wall Street Journal, Tune In Radio and Roku Player, with more apps to be added in the coming months.

    Sky Italia and Mediaset working on joint pay TV venture

    Sky Italia and Silvio Berlusconi’s Mediaset are in exploratory talks to establish a joint pay TV venture, according to Corriere della Sera.

    In late April a meeting took place between Silvio Berlusconi and Rupert Murdoch, with Rupert’s son Lachlan and Silvio’s son Pier also being present. The plan is to establish a new company, with Murdoch’s Sky holding a majority interest, in which the activities of Mediaset Premium and Sky Italia will be combined. The two pay TV operators currently have around 7.2 million subscribers.

    Should the deal be finalised, the Italian competition authority will have to clear the new venture. In a related development, the authority has just begun a probe into the sale of Serie A football rights to Mediaset and Sky Italia.
