    Global pay-TV tops $237BN

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 22 May 2015

    The global pay-TV services market, including cable TV, satellite, IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) video, totalled $237 billion in 2014, up 7% yearly, according to the 2015 IHS Infonetics Pay TV Services and Subscribers report.


    Global pay-TV subscribers ballooned to nearly 800 million in 2014 (up 5%), and for the first time the OTT pay-TV segment provided the strongest growth. Through 2019, OTT pay-TV services are forecast by IHS to have the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of any pay-TV service.

    "In a growing number of pay-TV markets, service providers are expanding market presence by offering their own OTT video services, primarily as apps on tablets and third-party OTT media servers. DISH Networks, the second-largest satellite provider in the US, is offering an OTT video service called Sling TV that's aimed squarely at cord-cutters and cord-nevers," said Jeff Heynen, research director for broadband access and pay TV at IHS. "The net result of these offerings will be slower revenue growth globally as OTT services carry a lower ARPU."

    Cable pay-TV revenue growth slowed to 1.8% in 2014, largely due to sluggish subscriber growth in North America, where net video subscribers are declining around 1% to 3% annually.

    "Pay TV providers are also actively marketing 'skinny' bundles of ten to 30 channels in more affordable packages. Verizon has gone so far as to introduce multiple bundles of channels that subscribers can add on top of their base channels to create a custom channel line-up," Heynen said.

    Telestream reveals new Episode of encoding software

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 22 May 2015

    Telestream has announced the launch of version 6.5 of its Episode multi-format encoding software.


    The new version includes support for closed captions, the latest formats, multi-bitrate encoding and multi-track audio.

    "Thousands of customers rely on Episode to process and deliver hundreds of thousands of hours of video monthly," said Barbara DeHart, vice president of desktop business at Telestream. "It's important to us that Episode be stable, fast and up-to-date with the latest technologies."

    Episode provides high quality, affordable transcoding for individuals and work groups. Preserving the integrity of original content while transferring it between incompatible systems is a constant challenge for post-production professionals. Episode's transcoding engine is designed for the entire production workflow – maintaining high quality files from the camera to edit and all the way to final delivery. Episode also provides built-in collaboration and clustering to join multiple Mac and PC machines together to provide affordable transcoding scalability.

    "We're excited to release Episode 6.5. The support for closed captions, multi-bitrate streaming, multi-track audio and new formats will help our customers take advantage of new technologies and build more complex workflows," said DeHart.

    Comcast, Level 3 ink long-term data interconnection agreement

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 22 May 2015

    Level 3 Communications has inked a long-term data interconnection extension with US cable giant Comcast.


    The two are expanding capacity to account for increased traffic flowing between their networks, largely spurred by video traffic, and not only as they exist today but allowing for any expansion during the term of the new deal. The move may be a vote of confidence for the FCC's new net neutrality rules, as recent skirmishing over such interconnections may be giving way to more friendly negotiations. Level 3 also reached a new interconnection arrangement with AT&T recently, as did Verizon and Cogent.

    "We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Level 3. This announcement reflects the important ways in which network participants exchange value in an innovative marketplace, said John Schanz, chief network officer at Comcast Cable: "We place great value on our relationships with network partners like Level 3 and are continually seeking mutually beneficial, market-driven agreements that enhance value throughout the network."

    BBC hits combined weekly global audience of 308 million

    DetailsEditor | 22 May 2015

    In what is the first time it has measured the 'importance and impact' of its work around the world, the BBC has revealed that it now boasts a weekly global audience of 308 million people.


    BBC reachIn 2013 BBC Director General Tony Hall set a target of 500 million by 2022 for the BBC's global reach figure which represents the combined measured extent of international BBC content, both news and entertainment.

    The BBC Global Audience Measure (GAM) figures also show that the corporation's weekly global news audience, which is measured each year, has increased by 18 million people, or 7% year-on-year, to what it says is a record-breaking 283 million, with one in every 16 adults around the world using BBC News.

    For the first time, television (148 million) overtook radio (133 million) as the most popular platform for BBC international news, and The BBC World Service showed the biggest growth for a single service audience, increasing 10% in its first year of Licence Fee funding, and now standing at 210 million. The biggest boost came from new World Service TV news bulletins in languages other than English.

    BBC World Service English had its highest ever weekly reach with an audience of 52 million, an increase of more than 25%, while BBC Global News Ltd's audience has grown to 105 million with BBC World News TV's up by 12% and bbc.com/news growing by 16%.

    The USA was the biggest single market for the World Service Group with 30 million, and the African continent accounted for an audience of 100 million. The data also showed that for the first time radio, TV and online audiences all grew – by 55 million – in the same year.

    Commenting on the data, Fran Unsworth, director of the BBC World Service Group, said: "These amazing figures demonstrate the importance and impact of the BBC around the world. In times of crisis and in countries lacking media freedom, people around the world turn to the BBC for trusted and accurate information. Thanks to our digital innovation we now have more ways than ever before of reaching our audience."

    Oz ad market shines in Q1 2015

    DetailsEditor | 22 May 2015

    Agency demand for media in the Australian advertising market has reached record-high levels in the first quarter of 2015 according to data from SMI.


    The research firm found that overall there was 4.3% growth for the total market in the first three months of year and total agency spend across the media landscape rose above $1.7 billion for the first time since the company began collecting spend data in 2007.

    The Australian TV market had a very bright start to the year with metropolitan free-to-air TV still on top when it comes to total spend, driving up growth in each of its top five advertiser categories. SMI added that TV more broadly continued to maintain a strong position in its share of agency spend, taking 46.7% of all bookings, compared with 47.4% in Q1 2014. It found that the sector's dominance was bolstered by automotive advertisers, by far the largest advertiser category in the market, which represented half of the quarter's total TV market spend.

    SMI added that its first quarter numbers seem to support the theory that the digitisation of a large volume of outdoor inventory, particularly online video and interactive opportunities, is attracting significant advertiser attention and fast inching up to digital as a significant player in the media mix.

    Channel 4 plugs in Voltage for Growth Fund investment

    DetailsJoseph O'Halloran | 22 May 2015

    As it continues to make use of its Growth Fund to support the UK's independent TV production sector, Channel 4 has chosen Voltage TV as the latest company in which to take an equity stake.


    voltage TVEstablished by former Dragonfly heads, Sanjay Singhal and Steven Nam, Voltage TV has been in business just over two years ago and have secured a number of key commissions for major networks, including landmark series X-Ray Mega Airport for Discovery Networks International to be broadcast later this year.

    Other key productions include: NHS: £2 Billion A Week & Counting and The British Property Boom for Channel 4; Epilepsy And Me and Extreme At 18 currently in production for BBC Three. Voltage's first series for the BBC, Inside The Factory: How Our Favourite Foods Are Made for BBC Two was stripped across three nights earlier this month. The indie is currently working on a number of funded developments for broadcasters including ITV, Channel 4, BBC, Discovery Networks International and Sky – ranging from access-based observational films to factual dramas.

    Commenting on the latest investment, David Abraham, chief executive at Channel 4, said: "In just over a year since the launch of the Growth Fund we have assembled a diverse and dynamic collection of seven highly talented British companies to partner with. We are delighted to include Voltage in this group. Under the expert stewardship of Sanjay and Steve, in less than two years, Voltage have proven themselves to be one of the fastest moving factual indies on the scene. "

    Added Singhal: "We're delighted to have this new investment. It gives us the ability to put considerable resources into the two things that matter the most: originating innovative new ideas and attracting the best creative talent to help deliver them."

    Ukraine delays ASO

    Ukraine will probably have to put off its ASO date, currently set for July 17, by between six months and a year.

    Quoted by RBC and Satkurier, Oleg Naliwajko, the chairman of the State Committee for Television and Radio, added that Zeonbud, the operator of Ukraine’s DVB-T2 network, was incapable of meeting the deadline.

    Indeed, there are some parts of the country where DTT coverage is still only around 40-50%.

    The July 17, 2015 ASO date was set in accordance with the Geneva 2006 Agreement.
