    Vodafone, Thomson complete 4G LTE broadcast for Valencia CF

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 22 May 2015

    As the first trial of a new initiative between Vodafone and Valencia CF, the telco has completed a live, multiscreen experience for football fans in the club's stadium through its LTE network, using Thomson's multiscreen and HEVC encoder solution.


    Vodafone Spain and Valencia CF used the ViBE VS7000 to distribute five simultaneous channels of live HD content to mobile devices in the Mestalla Stadium during the last Valencia vs. Celta de Vigo match.

    LTE Broadcast is designed to distribute a single instance of the content to multiple users for more efficient use of available bandwidth spectrum. With capacity constraints eliminated, the technology is ideal for delivering high quality video to mobile users in device-dense locations such as sports venues without time lag or delay.

    As an eMBMS-ready solution, the ViBE VS7000 provided the video encoding technology for converting the HD content to mobile formats during the trial.

    Vodafone's LTE Broadcast trial delivered exclusive video content to Valencia CF fans in the arena via a new application on their mobile devices. Designed to enrich fans' enjoyment of the football match, the content was tested using the 4G network infrastructure that Vodafone has deployed inside the stadium.

    "All over the world, 4G LTE networks are changing the way consumers think about accessing video on their mobile devices. The growth of 4G LTE-capable devices is exploding, and video traffic over the Internet and mobile networks will reach unprecedented levels over the next few years. The rapid evolution and innovation of mobile consumer devices is not only driving an ever-increasing demand for HD services, but also differentiated value-added services such as live in-event broadcasts", said Christophe Delahousse, president at Thomson Video Networks.

    Most Philips TVs to feature Android TV

    TP Vision will equip most Philips TVS from the 5-series upwards with Android TV.

    This is the second year that the manufacturer is offering Android TV, initially only on its top-line models of the 8- and 9-series, but now 80% of all its TV sets will feature the Google Play store. There will be a total of 38 models available with Android TV.

    The adaptation of the Google software has been a success for the company. Research has shown that 90% of all Android TVs sold are connected tot he internet, as compared to 65% of regular smart TV sets.

    “We were the first to offer Android TV,” said Marc Harmsen, global marketing lead, product development Europe and Russia, during a product presentation at TP Vision Amsterdam HQ. “And we are now incorporating a lot of things we learned during our first year.”

    Consumers expect smart TVs to be as fast and easy to handle as their smart phones. This has resulted in a better remote control and usage of a faster chip set – hexcore in the more expensive models.

    The home screen now also features Top Picks, with personalised picks from across all sources. “People do not want to go in and out of different apps when looking for content,” according to Harmsen. The solution is to offer content from different sources, no matter from which app they come.

    The apps from the Smart T V Alliance will continue to sit alongside ones from the Google Play store. Apps available also include Flex, VLC and home automation features.

    Gaming is also important on the new smart TV sets with over 300 games available from the like of Gameloft and EA, with games available as downloads as well as from the cloud.

    Less successful was the launch of a cloud TV service, where over 2,000 live streaming (niche) channels were available o Philips smart TVs. The aggregator of the channels pulled the plug out of its service and TP Vision is now lookign for other parties whi can supply live streaming OTT channels.

    Emerging markets drive satellite TV momentum

    The number of pay satellite TV [DBS or DTH] homes will reach 265 million by 2020, up from 203 million at end-2014 and 143 million at end-2010, according to a new report from Digital TV Research.

    Covering 138 countries, the Global Satellite TV Forecasts report estimates that India will continue to lead the sector, with 66.9 million pay satellite TV subs in 2020, followed by the US with 34.1 million. Russia (18.5 million) and Brazil (15.3 million) will take third and fourth places respectively. These four countries will account for just over half the global total by 2020.

    Satellite pay TV subs

    From the 61.6 million pay satellite TV subscribers to be added between 2014 and 2020, India will provide 23.5 million, Indonesia 5.0 million, Brazil 3.4 million and Russia 2.7 million. The pay satellite TV subs total will more than double in 41 countries. However, pay satellite TV subscriber totals will fall in 17 countries between 2014 and 2020 as subs convert to other platforms.

    Pay satellite TV penetration reached 13.1% of TV households at end-2014, and will climb to 15.6% by 2020. Penetration will exceed 25% of TV households in 27 countries by 2020, up from 11 in 2010.

    Global satellite TV revenues will reach $94.8 billion in 2020, up from $88.4 billion in 2014 and $71.8 billion in 2010. Satellite TV revenues will overtake total cable TV revenues in 2015.

    Asia Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa will show strong satellite TV revenue growth. However, revenues will fall in Western Europe and North America. The US will remain satellite TV market leader by revenues, although its share of the global total will fall from 44.8% in 2014 ($39.6 billion) to 41.3% in 2020 ($39.2 billion). Brazil will be second in revenue terms by 2020 ($6.8 billion); having overtaken the UK in 2013.

    India will add the most satellite TV revenues ($2.5 billion, moving from tenth to fifth place) between 2014 and 2020, with Nigeria increasing by $437 million and Indonesia $414 million. Revenues will more than double in 41 countries.

    However, revenues will fall in Canada by $805 million, the US by $421 million and France $232 million. Revenues will fall or be flat in 38 countries. Much of this is due to greater competition forcing satellite TV platforms to offer cheaper packages which will lead to lower ARPUs. Furthermore, low-cost satellite TV packages are making a significant impact in several countries.

    LATAM second-line markets present pay-TV opportunities

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 27 May 2015

    With the Latin American boom cooling down, the big pay-TV markets seem to be reaching saturation point, while countries such as Ecuador, Guatemala, Peru and Costa Rica, will see more growth opportunities in the near future.


    According to Business Bureau's chief operating officer, Christian Peralta, the pay-TV industry is going to contract over the coming years, but will still be delivering growth figures. Indeed, there will be over 83 million legal pay-TV subs in the region by 2019, almost 20 million more than the current figures show.

    But growth won't be capitalised on by the leading markets, which will be affected by financial losses and industry challenges such as cord-cutting. Growth will be led by countries like Peru, whose economy will be growing at 12% through 2019; Costa Rica and Guatemala, with growth rates over 9%; and Ecuador, growing by 7-8%.

    However, Brazil will still lead Latin America's pay-TV market in 2019, closely followed by Mexico, as these two markets represent too high a percentage to be overtaken by smaller countries.

    According to Peralta, specific conditions will power growth in the region´s smaller markets. With lower poverty and unemployment rates, more people will be able to pay for TV, while direct-to-home (DTH) platforms are bringing the services to rural and remote areas.

    In addition, competition has decreased service prices, and income distribution has improved in most of the countries. Overall, there will be cheaper services for a wider audience who will be able to afford them

    Eurovision breaks social TV record in Spain

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 27 May 2015

    Spain's social TV activity reached record numbers during the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, surpassing 2.2 million tweets during the final.


    According to Kantar Twitter TV Ratings, 2.228 million tweets were posted by Spanish viewers about Eurovision, more than double than last year.

    Nearly 900,000 people were behind the peak in Twitter activity, with each writing an average of 8.7 tweets during the event. An average of 1.53 million people read each tweet, marking a record for a social TV event in Spain.

    The contest, whose live broadcast on the Spanish public network TVE hit 5.96 million viewers across the country, saw #eurovision2015 and #edurnevision (Spain's entry) becoming national trending topics with more than 26,000 tweets per minute written during the show.

    Device figures obtained by the Kantar Media tool Instar Social, showed that most comments were from Android smartphones or tablets (58.4%) while 17.4% were written on an iOS device.

    Other recent reports indicate that Spain is experiencing a boom in social TV activities and second-screen consumption, driven by an audience that loves smart devices: over four-fifths of Spaniards own a smartphone.

    Spanish watchdog probes laSexta-Antena 3 merger

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 27 May 2015

    Spain's Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (CNMC) is to investigate Atresmedia for defaulting on the conditions of the La Sexta and Antena 3 merger regarding content management.


    The CNMC says there is evidence of offering better deals for advertisers on certain channels in exchange for investing an agreed amount in the whole media group. In addition, certain conditions agreed with the CNMC regarding content acquisition may not have been fulfilled. The CNMC has six months to investigate the case.

    The competition authority gave green light to the acquisition of laSexta by the Atresmedia group in July 2012, specifying some very strict conditions to preserve competition in the country's free-to-air (FTA) TV market. The merge was also authorised in August by the government, which added more restrictions.

    Atresmedia and laSexta finally agreed to complete the buyout in September 2012, thus giving Atresmedia control over eight FTA DTT channels - Antena 3, Neox, Nova, Nitro, La Sexta, Xplora, la Sexta3, and GolTV - accounting for roughly 42% of the advertising market.

    Pay-TV, mobile ads to rocket in Spain through 2015

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 27 May 2015

    Pay-TV is finally on the up in Spain, and is leading the growth in advertising together with mobile platforms among all media formats during 2015, with latest predictions that the industry will grow by 9.5% through to December.


    According to the Zenith panel forecast, 2015 is to be a period of general growth for media, if current financial conditions don't change. The predictions have been positive since last year, but pay-TV is now set to rocket through the second half of the year, from over 6% growth predicted in March to the current 9.5%.

    Mobile platforms (up 12.6%) and online advertising (up 8.4%) will also be at the peak of the growth wave, while free-to-air (FTA) TV is also forecast to see improvements from 6.1% growth to 7.1%.

    Online video advertising is predicted to see an investment growth of over 23%, reaching over €54 million. According to Zenith's analysts, new video formats and new tools to increase ad efficiency are behind the growing importance of online video.

    Although traditional TV platforms are still leading investment, the industry is very active around the Internet and social networks.

    Investments in blogs and sites will grow by 9% by the end of the year, reaching €12.7 million; social networks are set to grow 15%, reaching €49 million; and mobile productions (apps, sites development) will grow by 8%, gathering €28.2 million.
