    BIPT cuts cable wholesale access fees

    The Belgian telecoms regulator BIPT has proposed a 34% reduction in the fees for wholesale access to the Telenet, Coditel and Brutele cable networks.

    The basic price will drop from €29.90 to €19.70 monthly. This offers access to a triple-play including TV services, but a range of extra services was taken out of the package, such as content rights and the set-top box.

    Mobistar, who is working to launch triple play services on incumbent cablenets, said in a press release that it “carefully welcomes the new wholesale price proposal in the context of the cable network regulation.”

    “This new proposal adds clarifications to the questions that had previously been formulated by Mobistar (like the price of set-top boxes, modems, second screen…) and covers, among other issues, a correction of the wholesale price. Mobistar will now analyse this proposal and will share its comments once this detailed analysis has been completed.”

    Following the proposal from telecoms regulator BIPT, the three media regulators (VRM, CSA and Medienrat) will also issue their points of view.

    The proposals are still subject to public consultation and approval by European authorities before the media regulators can definitively endorse the price conditions.

    Telenet has said it’s disappointed with the new rates from BIPT and plans to challenge the decision, according to local press reports.

    Cause of Proton launch failure still unknown

    There are conflicting reports as to the cause of the failure that downed International Launch Services’ Proton rocket earlier this month.

    Russian media is reporting human error to be the most likely reason that the Proton-M rocket crashed on May 16th, destroying its payload, the Mexican Centario/Mexsat-1 satellite.

    However, Russian deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin blamed the crash on a historical design flaw in one of the engines. He told the Russian news agency Tass that the incident was similar to one in 2014 when the exact failure was not determined.

    He also said the low-level of wages in the Russian space industry was also a factor.

    Preliminary flight information indicates that the anomaly occurred during the operation of the third stage, approximately 490 seconds after lift-off.

    Investigations have been launched by a Russian State Commission and ILS.

    Moldova bans Russian channel

    Moldova’s Coordination Council on Television and Radio (CCA) has banned the Russian channel Rossiya 24 permanently.

    In a statement, it says that the stations Prime, TV7, Ren Moldova, RTR Moldova and Rossija 24 have constantly distorted facts and manipulated public opinion in reporting stories covering the situation in Ukraine.

    Their news and current affairs programmes have contained manipulative propaganda messages, causing incitement to hatred and ethnic strife with aggressive language.

    This, it adds, ran counter to national and international standards in the field of broadcasting.

    The CCA also says that it appreciated TV7 renounced the news and current affairs programmes it had retransmitted for Russia.

    It was punished with a minimum fine, while Prime, Ren Moldova and RTR Moldova were hit by the maximum and Rossiya 24 banned.

    French to expand HDTV

    French regulator CSA has issued a call for channels wanting to broadcast on the terrestrial TNT system in the HD format.

    It comes ahead of plans to end the simulcast of HD and SD services as spectrum currently used for television services is reallocated by the Government. Capacity between 694 and 790MHz, the so called 700MHz, is being handed over to the telecoms sector. From April 2016, MPEG-4 compression will become standard for DTT broadcasting.

    The Higher Audiovisual Council said it would pay particular attention to improving services for viewers and providing continuity with services already on the air.

    Applications must be submitted by 5pm on June 29, 2015.

    FRK challenges Liberty Global’s German cable deal

    German cable operator association FRK wants to achieve that US media company Liberty Global has to revoke the acquisition of cable company Kabel BW by its subsidiary Unitymedia.

    The association will evaluate the legal possibilities to take action against the settlement Liberty Global reached with its competitors Deutsche Telekom and NetCologne. Both companies subsequently withdrew their appeal against the approval of the takeover by federal German cartel office Bundeskartellamt. As part of the settlement, Liberty Global pays both companies €183 million in total.

    The cartel office approved the acquisition of Kabel BW by Unitymedia in December 2011 under restrictions. Deutsche Telekom and NetCologne lodged a complaint against the approval at appellate court Oberlandesgericht DŁsseldorf. The latter’s judges lifted the cartel office’s approval in August 2013, thereby effectively prohibiting the takeover. Unitymedia submitted an appeal against this decision at the Federal High Court of Justice, Bundesgerichtshof.

    In February 2015, the companies involved in the legal case announced that they have reached a settlement and that Deutsche Telekom and NetCologne will withdraw their appeals at Oberlandesgericht DŁsseldorf. The cartel office agreed to the settlement.

    FRKFRK has now commissioned Frankfurt-based law firm Schalast & Partner to evaluate whether and how legal action can be taken against the cartel office’s decision to approve the settlement. Applications for inspection of files were submitted at the appellate court and the cartel office.

    “The target is clearly the lifting of the settlement and the unwinding of the merger between Unitymedia and Kabel BW,” said FRK chairman Heinz-Peter Labonte. “The small and medium-sized companies are once again left alone by the cartel office.”

    According to FRK, through the payment of “such a high amount” to only two, yet financially strong competitors, competition will be harmed more severely than though the merger of Unitymedia and Kabel BW in the first place. Also, in the view of FRK, the payment of such a large sum two just two competitors in the market is not suitable to clear the appellate court’s concerns regarding the effectiveness of the restrictions imposed by the cartel office.

    Tivulink offers direct access to on-demand services

    Tivý is launching tivýlink, a guide that makes it possible to launch the on-demand services of the Italian broadcasters with a single click.

    Tivýlink is a new app of the free-to-view Italian DTH platform tivýsat, which gives direct access all the on-demand services from the Italian broadcasters, such as Rai Replay, Rai TGR, Mediaset Rewind in HD, Infinity, and La7 On Demand.

    The new app has a welcome screen with all the on-demand services of the available broadcasters; the browsing is simple and intuitive, through the function keys on the remote control.

    The on demand services can also be explored by broadcaster, and it is possible to get information on each of them by pressing the yellow button on the remote control, or to launch them by pressing the OK button on the remote control. In order to access the services, the TV set or Tivusat set-top needs to be connected to broadband internet.

    “The interactive services of the broadcasters are not immediately visible because they are placed at the bottom of the channel list,” said Alessandro Picardi, president of Tivý, the company that manages tivýsat.

    “With tivýlink, Tivý tries to simplify the use of on-demand services, by creating a single “window” for interactive applications that will improve the quality of the user experience”.

    Video services take off in Russia

    The Russian market for legal video services is likely to be worth R12.9 (€230.2 million) billion by 2018.

    Quoting research by J’son & Partners, AKTR and Telecom Daily report that given its value was R7.4 billion in 2014, this represents an average annual growth of 14.9%.

    They add that advertising was the main model for monetising online video in 2014, accounting for 66.5% of revenues, and that its share will increase to 72% by 2018.

    The study included video services accessed through a STB, OTT, apps for smart TVs and mobile devices, as well as online PPV services and pay-TV operators.

    J’son & Partners notes that a reduction in TVOD’s share of the market was largely down to Tricolor TV, Russia’s leading pay-TV operator, moving its movie channels to the basic package in order to make it more attractive.

    US connected-TV penetration passes 50%

    56% of all US households have at least one television set connected to the internet, according to Leichtman Research Group.

    Connection takes place via a video game system, a smart TV set, a Blu-ray player, and/or a stand-alone device (such as Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV); this is up from 44% in 2013, and 24% in 2010.

    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. Overall, 29% of adults watch internet-delivered video via a connected TV at least weekly, compared to 17% in 2013, and 5% in 2010. In addition, among Netflix streaming video users, 85% say that they watch Netflix on a TV set; a slightly higher level than in any previous year.

    These findings are based on a telephone survey of 1,215 households nationwide and are part of an LRG study, Emerging Video Services IX.

    “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.

    “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.”

    Other related findings include: 52% of households get a subscription video on-Demand (SVOD) service from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu Plus; 43% of adults stream an SVOD service at least monthly; 43% of pay-TV subscribers get Netflix; compared to 50% of all pay-TV non-subscribers.

    19% of Netflix subscribers agree that their Netflix subscription is shared with others outside their household.

    On a daily basis, 33% of adults watch video on non-TV devices (including home computers, mobile phones, iPads, tablets, and eReaders), and 58% weekly; up from 27% daily, and 53% weekly two years ago.

    10% of adults are very interested in HBO Now at $14.99 per month without having to subscribe to a pay-TV service.

    Magyar Telekom looks to the future

    Magyar Telekom has welcomed the “calm times” that have followed since the Hungarian government decided to do some brainstorming in the wake of its controversial ‘internet tax’ proposal.

    In a wide-ranging interview with Portfolio, Christopher Mattheisen, the company’s chief executive, said that the cabinet’s decision to go easy on the tax would help the telco’s network development plans and contribute to the development on broadband in Hungary.

    However, Magyar Telekom already has to pay between HUF30-35 billion (€91-113 million) in taxes each year.

    Mattheisen added that the telco plans to increase the number of households it is able to provide broadband access to to 2.2 million, or over half the country’s total, by the end of this year.
