    DISH cancels EastEnders — for now

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 10 July 2015



    DISH Network is discontinuing its pay-per-view East Enders offering, which it has been running the past 11 years.


    The $9.95 monthly pay-per-view offering for the BBC soap is in limbo while the satcaster and BBC Worldwide determine the next move. It's possible that the offering could move to DISH's over-the-top (OTT). offering, Sling TV.

    "The EastEnders TV series is temporarily unavailable as a new distribution model is being finalised by Dish and BBC Worldwide," the two said. "We regret any inconvenience and remain committed to promptly returning this content to our customers."

    The discontinuation has riled US fans of the 30-year old British TV fixture, including Bobbie A Camp, who said in a Twitter exchange with the @Dish_Answers account, "EastEnders has been on PPV since 2004 through Dish, and to just cancel it without a word to viewers - tsk, tsk."

    The show's older episodes continue to air on public television stations around the country.

    The TV slate features live coverage of all 70 matches beginning Saturday, 8 August at 7.45am ET on NBCSN, with Manchester United vs. Tottenham.

    The networks of NBCUniversal will present at least five games each week in the season's first two months on NBC and NBCSN, with all games preceded and followed by Premier League Live pre- and post-match shows from the NBC Sports Group International Broadcast Centre in Stamford, Connecticut.

    All remaining Premier League matches will be made available on Premier League Extra Time, a bonus television package available to MVPDs at no extra cost for customers who receive NBCSN.

    BT calls on UK regulator to probe Sky's pay-TV 'dominance'

    DetailsEditor | 10 July 2015


    As it presses home the advantage it has with rights to popular pay-TV programming, UK telco BT is calling on the country's broadcast regulator to investigate rival's Sky's perceived market dominance.


    JOhn Petter BTIn a speech to the UK Broadcasting Press Guild, BT Consumer Division CEO John Petter urged Ofcom to formally amend the scope of its Digital Communications Review to include pay-TV, citing high prices and poor outcomes for consumers arising from a lack of competition. Specifically it called out its arch-rival for overcharging customers, drawing comparisons with the price of broadband with that of pay-TV service, slamming what it called 'real market failings' in pay-TV where Sky was the dominant player.

    Petter used data from an Analysys Mason pay-TV pricing and triple-play review in November 2014 showing that 10.5 million UK Sky customers are paying £4.34 per month above the European average on basic TV packages. He added that Sky customers that take premium options like sport and movies are paying £6.33 per month above the European average.

    Commenting on the figures, Petter said: "Whereas in the energy market regulators have criticised the Big Six operators, in pay-TV Sky has a 64% share, so there is really only the Big One. Relative to EU averages Sky customers are paying around a half a billion pounds more per year for the basic packages of pay-TV channel. Switching in pay-TV is 50% lower than the levels seen in broadband, so it is clear we just aren't seeing the right levels of competition for Sky".

    Petter added that even the arrival, and subsequent rights success, of BT Sport hadn't changed the overall market dynamics given the dominance of Sky. He asserted that the fact that BT Sport has attracted 2.4 million viewers who weren't previously viewing Sky Sports, was evidence of a large unserved part of the population unable to pay the high prices demanded by Sky. He condemned Sky's decision to increase prices in response to the launch of BT Sport as evidence as being "based on a calculation that customers don't have anywhere else to go".

    Calling on the regulator to investigate, he concluded: "We think Ofcom should heed the call of Sky's biggest shareholder. James Murdoch once said in relation to Sky that 21st Century Fox fought for 'a level playing field and to have competition policy applied with an even hand'. But when it comes to competition in pay-TV, the message from Sky seems to be 'talk to the hand'. We think Ofcom should make Mr Murdoch happy and give the UK a competitive pay-TV market that is fit for the next decade".

    Ofcom reveals plans for UK ad scheduling

    DetailsEditor | 10 July 2015


    UK TV and telecoms regulator Ofcom has published its plans as to how it will enforce its rules on the scheduling of TV advertising.


    Ofcom's Code on the Scheduling of Television Advertising (COSTA) sets rules on the amount and scheduling of TV advertising, with the intention of protecting viewers and ensuring that minimum standards required under European law are followed. European law does not specify the approach which national regulators, like Ofcom, should take to measure 'scheduled duration' when enforcing rules. The number of internal breaks permitted in a programme is determined by a range of factors including the programme's genre and its scheduled duration, a term set out in European legislation but not otherwise defined.

    In the UK's case this includes a limit on the number of advertising breaks which may be shown during a programme, depending on its scheduled duration. Ofcom has traditionally used information from published programme listings, such as electronic programme guides (EPGs), from free and pay-TV services, for this purpose.

    After a period of consultation, Ofcom has set out in a paper its strategy. It has decided that the continued use of EPG information to measure scheduled duration balances its duties to secure the availability of a wide range of TV services while ensuring that viewers, particularly children, are protected from excessive levels of advertising. Moreover it believes that its new formula will offer greater transparency than the alternative options available and will represent an appropriate basis for assessing compliance with the requirements of European legislation.

    Ofcom has also made revisions to the layout and wording of the COSTA rules. These changes are designed to make COSTA clearer and easier to follow.

    Legal blow for Hungarian pubcaster

    MTVA, the body that operates public TV and radio stations in Hungary, has lost a second court case against the news portal index.hu.

    BBJ reports that MTVA sued Index for an article in September last year that claimed it manipulated its viewership figures.

    Specifically, MTVA said that 19% of the Hungarian population was watching one of its shows, whereas only 300,000 people did so.

    Index said that the figure of 1.7 million was arrived at by MTVA by adding together all viewers watching its TV programmes on that specific day.
