    Telefónica targets 4K streaming, IPTV with 300Mbps fibre

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 28 May 2015

    Telefónica is offering customers of its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network in Spain the ability to subscribe to the highest speed in the country - 300Mb - thus opening a new window for 4K streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) pay-TV through its IPTV service.


    Customers have started to migrate to the 300Mb fibre network, and competing telcos such as Vodafone have announced they will soon respond to the move.

    Telefónica's network, which offers 300Mbps download and 30Mbps upload, aims to support a connected home with high levels of video and TV consumption and data traffic through video games and streamed music services.

    The telco is enticing consumers by announcing it will support 4K streaming yet will still enable users to consume TV or VOD through Movistar TV, or download content at up to ten times the current average speed.

    The move, which was announced at the end of March and was scheduled to take place before summer, also aims to strengthen the market share of Telefónica's fibre network, which is currently available in 10.3 million homes, although only around 10% are actually connected to it. The telco also plans to add 3.6 million homes to the network before the end of the year.

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 28 May 2015

    Aiming to reinforce engagement around its comedy programming, Canal Sony is to launch an interactive app throughout Latin America to transform series like How I Met Your Mother into social events.


    The app will be linked to the a new line-up slot for comedies, Cárgate de Risa, and will enable viewers to save their favourite scenes, mix content or record their own laughs to play them later over the video. Through Canal Sony's app, other viewers will also able to listen to the community's laughter and vote for the best ones. The selected guffaws will then be included in a special section inside the Cárgate de Risa slot.

    The app will also include other tools and games, such as an on-demand section with the best sentences, bloopers and moments of each series.

    The new programming slot is scheduled for Thursday nights and includes series like How I Met Your Mother - through which Canal Sony has recovered its audience figures across the region- Blackish and The McCarthy's.

    Following the premiere of the new programming almost a year ago, Sony Pictures also launched a pay-TV feed with Canal Sony and AXN in Central America and the Caribbean, joining its four standard definition channels for Mexico, the Southern region (Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay), the Andean region (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia) and Venezuela. In addition, it is providing an HD feed for Brazil and a general feed for the whole of Latin America.

    More than half of all American households have connected TVs

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 28 May 2015

    Consumer research from Leichtman Research Group has found that 56% of all US households have at least one television set connected to the Internet.


    The sets may be connected via a video game console system, a smart TV set, a Blu-ray player, and/or a stand-alone device like Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV — but in total, connections are up from 44% in 2013, and 24% in 2010.

    Also, while 27% of all households have a TV set connected via one device, 29% of households are now connected via multiple devices — up from 17% in 2013.

    "Along with the increase in connected TV households and devices, there has also been an increase in watching Internet-delivered video on the TV set," the firm noted. "Overall, 29% of adults watch Internet-delivered video via a connected TV at least weekly, compared to 17% in 2013, and 5% in 2010."

    Interestingly, 52% of households get a subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu Plus — and 43% of adults stream an SVOD service at least monthly. About 43% of pay-TV subscribers get Netflix compared to 50% of all pay-TV non-subscribers, and among them, 85% say that they watch Netflix on a TV set — a slightly higher level than in any previous year.

    "Internet-delivered video services and platform have grown significantly over the past few years, and one-third of adults now watch video on non-TV devices daily," said Bruce Leichtman, president and principal analyst for Leichtman Research Group, Inc. "Yet, with over half of US households now having at least one connected TV set, Internet-delivered video is also increasingly being watched on the TV, exemplifying the desire to watch longer-form video on the best available screen."

    Ooyala adds ad viewability metrics

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 28 May 2015

    Ooyala has introduced a new feature in its video ad campaign management workflow that enables clients to book campaigns based on ad completion, in addition to traditional CPMs.


    Customers of Ooyala's Videoplaza ad serving software can use viewability-based measurement for a more accurate look at audience metrics, based on how long a viewer watched a particular video advertisement. They can then tailor ad campaign goals based on certain completion events or set delivery goal benchmarks.

    Video ad viewability stands at a disappointing 54% across the Web, according to research from Google, but customers with high ad completion rates can thus set higher price points for assets that drive the highest engagement, shifting the monetisation model. Basing price points on ad completions, content providers can sell inventory at an eCPM (effective CPM) rate that is higher than their typical CPM rate.

    "The industry will see a major flight to quality for video advertising in 2015, of which viewability and measurement will be major components," said Sorosh Tavakoli, senior vice president of ad tech for Ooyala. "It's a natural next step as the market scales and matures. Most notably, viewability metrics eliminate much of the angst advertisers have around fraud and ambiguous impressions. Delivering measurement based on true engagement provides a new level of trust and transparency, and that will ultimately help move major advertising budgets online."

    Sky Arts draws up major expansion plans

    DetailsEditor | 28 May 2015

    On the clear basis of art for art's sake, Sky is to launch a summer initiative to boost its art collection for customers in Italy, Germany, Austria, Ireland and the UK.


    The European pay-TV giant is to make one of its first major international content initiatives since the creation of the new Sky in November 2014. In addition to more arts programming, the campaign will see the launch of a new on-demand service and the extension of Sky Arts to entirely new international audiences.

    The new initiative will be centred from a new commissioning and production centre, the Sky Arts Production Hub, based in Milan and dedicated to creating arts programming for Sky customers across Europe. The hub will also produce a slate of arts programming for customers across all Sky territories in addition to content commissioned locally.

    The company chose Italy because of what it says is its worldwide reputation for creativity, production quality and talent, making it the ideal place to produce the kind of arts programming that will appeal across different markets.

    As its inaugural pan-European arts event, Sky will launch Sky Arts Photographer of the Year in 2016.

    Alongside the new hub, Sky Arts in the UK and Ireland will undergo a major re-launch, offering customers what is claimed to be the most comprehensive on-demand catalogue of arts programming with over 1,000 hours of content available at launch including programmes commissioned and acquired exclusively for on-demand viewing. The Sky Arts 1 and Sky Arts 2 channels will a merge to create a single 'super-channel'.

    "Bringing the three Sky businesses together has opened up the opportunity to create new and exciting content on a greater scale," commented Sky Group chief executive Jeremy Darroch. "As an international company, we can raise our ambition and make a bigger impact for millions of customers across Europe. [The] announcement represents a major new commitment [that] will bring customers high quality and distinctive content covering the full breadth of the arts. It builds on Sky's position as Europe's leading entertainment company and underlines our ambition to invest at scale in even more of our own original content."

    New satellites give major boost to DirecTV HD, 4KTV capacity

    DetailsJoseph O'Halloran | 28 May 2015

    After notable failed satellite missions elsewhere, DirecTV is reporting the successful launch of two spacecraft that it says will significantly increase HD capacity, secure the future of 4K/Ultra HD and back up its existing fleet.


    Launched on a single ARIANE 5 launch vehicle operated by Arianespace from the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, the two new craft comprise DIRECTV-15 (D-15), an all-CONUS (Continental United States, including Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico) beam satellite, and SKY MEXICO-1 (SKYM-1), SKY MEXICO's first owned-and-operated satellite.

    Positioned at 103° West and operational for the next 15 years, D-15 represents DirecTV's first offering with the capability to operate in all five of the company's orbital slots and in all frequency bands (Ku, Ka and Reverse). It is the first all-CONUS beam DirecTV satellite to launch in ten years, and will expand national capacity for not only HDTV services but also emerging 4K/Ultra HD channels as they come on-stream in a country crucial to its development. It will also provide critical back-up for existing CONUS transponders.

    Operating from 79° West and adding to the IS-21 satellite capabilities at 58° West, SKYM-1 will double HDTV capacity for SKY MEXICO, claimed to be the leading company in the Mexican pay-TV market. The craft has a stated life span of more than 18 years and will provide direct-to-home (DTH) broadcast services to Mexico, Central America, Cuba and the Caribbean.

    "We congratulate the launch team and our partners, Arianespace, Airbus Defence and Space, and Orbital ATK on a spectacular and historic launch," said DirecTV senior vice president, space and communications, Phil Goswitz. "D-15, the most versatile spacecraft in the fleet and the robust SKYM-1, secure DIRECTV's ability to continue delivering the best video experience with the most advanced technology."

    ivi adds personal touch for VOD in Russia

    DetailsEditor | 28 May 2015

    One of Russia's largest video-on-demand (VOD) suppliers, ivi, has launched what it calls a first-of-its-kind personalised TV service based on and deeply integrated into its core on-demand platform.


    ivi2Moreover, ivi tv is said to offer the simplicity of traditional TV together with 'innovative opportunities' offered by VOD. A number of channels on ivi tv are aggregated through a recommendations system for each individual user, updated on a daily basis, depending on the history of previously watched movies and programmes. In addition to these personalised channels, ivi tv offers more than 40 genre channels that include over 25,000 units of content, as well as special channels made by ivi tv's team of editors, including video content from the whole ivi library.

    "TV hasn't undergone any fundamental changes in the last 50 years. And it has been doing exactly the same thing: broadcasting content to clients, not asking for any feedback from its users or providing any option to manage your own video stream," commented ivi CEO Oleg Tumanov. "We decided to bring together the vast functionality of VOD and the easiness of traditional TV to provide a very effective solution for our users who at some point don't want to make a choice: they just want to turn on and watch."

    Initially available on the LG Smart TV platform, ivi tv is now also available on Samsung sets and will expand to other platforms within the next few months.
