    Spanish cableco for sale

    The Spanish cable operator Telecable may soon find itself under new ownership.

    Citing two sources with knowledge of the deal, Reuters reports that the private equity firm Carlyle has hired Goldman Sachs to advise it on the possible sale of its controlling stake in the company.

    Carlyle acquired an 85% share in Telecable, which is based in the Asturias region of Spain, in October 2011 in a deal that valued the company at €400 million.

    Tricolor TV faces investigation

    The leading Russian pay-TV operator Tricolor TV is being investigated by the regulator Roskomnadzor for allegedly not offering must-carry channels for free.

    According to AKTR and Rambler, Roskomnadzor has begun an unscheduled inspection that will last for 20 days following numerous complaints from subscribers.

    Although Tricolor TV claims that the channels are being offered for free to subscribers, they are placed in pay packages.

    In its view, viewers who do not pay for its services are not classified as subscribers.

    Tricolor TV faces the prospect of being fined but is unlikely to have its licence withdrawn.

    There are currently 10 must-carry national TV channels in Russia, all of which have been approved by presidential decree.

    They include Channel One, RTR and NTV.

    Tricolor TV currently has around 11 million subscribers, close to half of which (5 million) watch HD services.

    Surprising switch for Ukrainian channels

    A number of encrypted satellite-delivered Ukrainian channels have unexpectedly become available FTA, albeit temporarily.

    Satkurier reports that the channels in question – Futbol 1, Futbol 2, English Club TV and English Club TV HD – are distributed by Astra 4A at 4.8 degrees East and use such encryption systems as Conax, Viaccess and VideoGuard.

    Although Satkurier says the reason is most likely down to a failure on the part of the operator, Broadband TV News notes there have been no statement issued by SES.

    Futbol 1 and Futbol 2 are part of Media Group Ukraine’s portfolio.

    Spain okays Orange takeover of Jazztel

    The Spanish Securities Commission (CNMV) has authorised the voluntary cash tender offer for the acquisition of Jazztel.

    The offer, which will be open from May 28, 2015 to June 24, 2015, covers 100% of Jazztel’s shares. This offer will enable shareholders of Jazztel to receive EUR13 per share in cash. In the case of an acquisition of 100% of Jazztel’s capital, Orange will pay EUR3.4 billion.

    The offer is conditional on shareholders of Jazztel holding in aggregate at least 50% plus one share of the maximum theoretical share capital irrevocably accepting the offer. Orange has already secured irrevocable commitments to accept the offer from shareholders representing 14.804% of the issued share capital of Jazztel.

    The offer was initially made conditional on Orange obtaining all competition clearances from the relevant authorities. This condition was satisfied when the European Commission approved the proposed acquisition, subject to certain remedies.

    Shareholders of Jazztel that wish to accept the offer should contact their custodian, depositary bank, stock broker or other entity through whom their shares are deposited within the acceptance period.

    TiVo continues to grow

    Total subscriptions to TiVo stood at around 5.8 million as of the end of April, up 27% on a year earlier.

    In its latest set of results, the company also says that it also had the best ever Q1 net additions figure in eight years, while gross additions of 39,000 were 22% up year-on-year.

    Meanwhile, service and technology revenues were a record $92.4 million in Q1 (+7% year-on-year), with adjusted EBITDA and net income at $29 million and $7.9 million respectively.

    Commenting on the results, Tom Rogers, president and CEO of TiVo, said: “Our operational and financial performance this quarter represented a strong start to Fiscal 2016. Service & Technology Revenue exceeded guidance and adjusted EBITDA and net income came in at the top-end of our guidance. Service Revenue was up 11% year-over-year, driven by a 41% increase in MSO service revenue and almost doubling Digitalsmiths’ service revenue. Our innovative products continue to gain global reach across both the retail and operator communities with total subscriptions now at approximately 5.8 million, a 27% improvement over last year and a 132% increase over where we stood at the end of the first quarter of Fiscal 2013. During the quarter, we continued to add MSO subscriptions at a rapid pace and delivered the best first quarter of TiVo-owned net subscription additions in eight years, driving positive net subscription additions”.

    He added: “As we look to the remainder of the year and beyond, the successful completion of critical initiatives including the extension of our agreement with Virgin Media, the broadening of our international opportunity through the acquisition of Cubiware, and numerous others, has positioned us at the forefront of the evolving media landscape. As a result, we believe we are well placed to drive strong long-term operating and financial results, to invest in innovation to build on our solid competitive position, and to drive shareholder value through our buyback authorisation.”

    Sky commits to European arts coverage

    Sky has announced a major content initiative that will be available to 21 million customers across Europe.

    The broadcaster is creating the Sky Arts Production Hub, a commissioning and production centre of excellence based in Milan, dedicated to creating arts programming for Sky customers across Europe. Italy was chosen because of its worldwide reputation for creativity, production quality and talent.

    Content made in Milan will be seen on Sky Arte in Italy, on Sky Arts in the UK and Ireland and new Sky Arts launches for Germany and Austria. The content will be in addition to that commissioned locally.

    Jeremy Darroch, Group Chief Executive, Sky said: “Bringing the three Sky businesses together has opened up the opportunity to create new and exciting content on a greater scale. As an international company, we can raise our ambition and make a bigger impact for millions of customers across Europe.

    The first commission is Sky Arts Photographer of the Year in 2016. Opening for entries later this year, the competition will bid to find the best amateur photographer in Europe, spanning all forms of the medium. It will be judged by a jury composed of some of the leading lights from the world of photography, and, says Sky, will offer the biggest prize of any photography competition in Europe.

    In the UK, Sky Arts will relaunch on June 9, dropping a channel but gaining an enhanced VOD service and better placed channel number.

    Sky Arts to launch in Germany

    Pay-TV broadcaster Sky will take its arts and culture channel Sky Arts to Germany and Austria, a Sky Deutschland spokeswoman confirmed to Broadband TV News.

    The move is part of the major European arts content initiative announced by Sky earlier today.

    Sky Arts is already available in the UK and Ireland; an Italian version launched at the end of 2012. Like its sister channels, the German service will focus on areas such as arts, culture, theatre and music.

    The spokeswomen declined to disclose further information, for example regarding distribution, content or launch date.

    Sky Deutschland wants to reveal more details on the German Sky Arts version at a press event in early July 2015.

    EXCLUSIVE: DanceTrippin TV plans international expansion

    DanceTrippin TV, the music channel for the fans of dance music and clubbing culture, plans to launch in further international markets this year including Germany, the UK and France, founder and managing director Will Johnston told Broadband TV News.

    Carriage negotiations are underway with a major platform operator in Germany with distribution to commence “pretty soon”, said Johnston. The Amsterdam-based broadcaster recently launched at VipNet in Croatia and on regional networks in Spain.

    Further international targets on the agenda include the UK, France, Greece, Eastern Europe and India, said Johnston. “There’s also lots of interest in our channel in Latin America and Asia.” Local distribution agents have been appointed to work out carriage deals.

    DanceTrippin TV emerged out of a production company specialising in recordings of live DJ sessions at festivals, clubs and parties which Johnston founded in 2000. The TV market was entered in 2003 when the company started broadcasting its footage during the night-time hours of local Ibiza TV channel TEF. This soon became popular among bars and cafés on the island who aired it on screens at their locations.

    DanceTrippin TV The party is at your house“This showed us how well it works,” said Johnston. “There has been no quality coverage of live DJ sets on mainstream television, but a huge dance music fan base.” The strongly growing numbers of video recordings from events uploaded by private people on YouTube further illustrated the strong demand.

    DanceTrippin TV launched as a 24 hour linear TV channel in 2012 on Eutelsat’s Eurobird satellite at 9° East and on UPC’s cable network in the Netherlands where it is meanwhile also available on Ziggo. “It has always been our intention to offer the channel internationally as music has no boundaries,” said Johnston.

    Currently, DanceTrippin TV provides a single international feed for all markets which is distributed as a pay-TV service by domestic platform operators. Localised versions are planned for a later stage, in particular for markets in which the channel plans to launch as a free-to-air service such as the UK and France, according to Johnston. DanceTrippin TV is also available through TV apps on Amazon Fire TV, Roku TV and the Opera TV Store.

    90% of the channel’s schedule consists of nonstop recordings of live DJ sets from festivals, clubs, discotheques and other party venues. DanceTrippin TV has already produced more than 400 videos, for example covering the performance of Carl Cox at the Space Opening Party in Ibiza or Solomun & H.O.S.H. at the Diynamic Festival in Amsterdam. The channel also shows behind-the-scenes reports, interviews and documentaries.

    In the long run, DanceTrippin TV considers setting up sister channels focusing on genres such as commercial music or underground clubbing sounds for platform providers offering space for more than the main channel, said Johnston. Future plans also include the addition of a personalisation feature to the TV apps enabling viewers to customise the music lineup to their individual taste.

    ESPN bets on Italy's Serie A for LATAM sporting line-up

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 28 May 2015

    Shortly after announcing an agreement for Germany's Bundesliga rights, ESPN has confirmed it will also broadcast Italian football across Latin America, following a deal with FOX Sports for the next three years which also includes rights for some Caribbean countries.


    FOX Sports - which secured the Lega Calcio rights via the MP Silva agency earlier this month - and ESPN will divide the matches equally for Serie A. ESPN will carry 190 matches each season along with weekly highlight shows, a weekly official magazine programme and archive footage.

    "This renewal underscores our on-going commitment to always deliver world-class content to our fans across Latin America and the Caribbean," said Tim Bunnell, senior vice president of programming, production, marketing and advertising sales of ESPN International. "We have a long history as a Serie A broadcaster. This competition is one the most prestigious soccer leagues in the world, and we are eager to build on the success we have had over many years in presenting Serie A to our viewers".

    The next Serie A season begins on 22 August and will be broadcast on all ESPN's channels and platforms, including ESPN Play.

    The deal follows the one announced earlier this week in which FOX and ESPN will split the Bundeliga football rights across Latin America and the Caribbean.

    More than two-thirds of Spaniards use Internet while watching TV

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 28 May 2015

    Social TV consumption is rife among Spanish viewers, with almost 70% using the Internet while watching TV and almost half of the population doing so frequently.


    According to figures published through the Q Panel of the Asociación para la Investigación de los Medios de Comunicación (AIMC), 65% sometimes surf the Internet while watching TV, while 54% regularly do it and 46% use the Internet very frequently.

    Smartphones are the preferred devices, with 58% of social TV users watching via these, followed by laptops (26%) and tablets (15%).

    Although Spanish viewers seem to be using their TV viewing time to do all kinds of tasks on the Internet, most like to watch and comment on social networks, with 66% using platforms like Facebook or Twitter and 42% using instant messaging services.

    According to the report, social TV activity extends through every age group, but millennials top the figures. Regardless of age, the most commented upon TV content are sports, movies and series.

    In addition to social TV figures, the report also found that streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) consumption via the Internet are becoming increasingly popular. Almost six in ten viewers watched at least one piece of TV content through the Internet during the 30 days before the survey took place.

    Spain's increasing social TV activity has been highlighted in previous reports into programmes such as Eurovision which registered over 2.2 million comments.
