    MTG increases Splay investment

    MTG has taken its shareholding in the Scandinavian advertising video network to 81%. In addition to buying more shares from the company’s founders, MTG has also further invested in the company as it looks to accelerate its expansion.

    Splay creates its own stars in videos that are seen in Germany, Norway, Sweden and around the world. Splay’s content is currently generating over 120 million monthly views (up over 900% since the beginning of 2014) on its 430 YouTube channels. Splay’s video stars have 14 million subscribers on YouTube and over 50 million followers on Instagram.

    Splay primarily generates its revenues from advertising and influencer marketing campaigns for global brands like Coca-Cola, Unilever, P&G, McDonalds and L’Oréal. Splay’s sales grew more than sixfold in 2014 and are expected to double in 2015.

    “Thanks to our cooperation with MTG, we have gone from a basement company to the market leader in our home markets. MTG’s continued investment in Splay makes it possible for us to continue building our brand, develop our talents, and accelerate our international expansion,” said Vigor Sörman, Founder and CEO of Splay.

    Splay is just one element of a growing portfolio of complementary digital video entertainment companies held by MTG. Others include Viaplay (subscription video on demand), Viagame (esports), NetInfo (Bulgaria’s leading digital service provider), and MTG’s ‘Play’ advertising video on demand TV sites in 8 European countries.

    Last week MTG announced its investment in a majority shareholding in ESL, which is the world’s largest esports company.

    ARCEP invites bids on French 700MHz auction

    The French telecommunications office ARCEP has issued an invitation tender for the 700 MHz band being vacated by the country’s DTT broadcasters. It’s envisaged the capacity will go to telecom operators for mobile broadband services.

    A multiround auction will see the sale of six x 5 MHz blocks. The government has set a reserve price of €416 million in each block; it has also attached a series of coverage obligations that ARCEP says are as strong as those attached to the 800 MHz band already in use by the mobile sector.

    In addition, a single candidate cannot acquire more than 2 × 15 MHz in the 700 MHz band or more than 2 × 30 MHz of low-frequency spectrum.

    Companies that are expected to include Orange, SFR, Bouygues Télécom and Free, have until September 29, 2015 to lodge their bids.

    The 700MHz band will be cleared on a gradual basis between 2016 and 2019.

    HD+ unveils first HD+ embedded UltraHD TV set and channel

    DetailsEditor | 11 July 2015


    SES and TechniSat’s subsidiary HD+ has unveiled what the company claims is the first UltraHD TV set integrated with its no-CI+ module decryption system.


    The unveiling of the system at the IFA innovation briefings also saw the pre-announcement of the launch of a complementary UltraHD demo channel in September.

    With the new TechniMedia UHD+ system, the company says that consumers will have easy access to more than 50 HD channels via the HD+ platform as long as they have a valid HD+ card. They will also be able to access HD+’s new UltraHD demo channel. Currently, HD+ customers access HD+ channels by connecting a TV with an HD+ set-top-box or with a CI+ module.

    The TechniMedia UHD+ will be available in the fourth quarter of 2015 in three sizes: 43 inches (109 cm), 49 inches (123 cm) and 55 inches (140 cm). When launched in September, the HD+ UHD demo channel will broadcast a mix of sports, culture, lifestyle and nature content. Professional industry partners who are keen to test out their Ultra HD content can also contribute to the demo channel. The TechniMedia UHD+ will also offer premium features as well as multimedia integration into the home network and can be controlled through an app.

    “With more UltraHD content being produced, it’s a matter of time before UltraHD channels are offered in the market. At the same time, consumer electronics must be easy to use and intuitive, hence the reason why we partnered with TechniSat to offer HD+ on a new UltraHD TV,” commented Georges Agnes, managing director of product development at HD PLUS. “In September, the new HD+ UltraHD demo channel will broadcast content of our professional partners and also provide producers with the opportunity to broadcast their user-generated content on linear TV.”

    ATSC 3.0 standard undergoes field testing

    DetailsEditor | 11 July 2015


    US regulator the FCC has granted an experimental broadcast licence to field test the ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard.


    LG, GatesAir and Zenith, who are among those behind the standard, say that with the new standard TV broadcasters will reach even more viewers with improved, robust, digital over-the-air signals. In the test Tribune Broadcasting’s WJW-TV is providing a TV transmitter, tower and 6-MHz channel for the ATSC 3.0-related field testing in Cleveland conducted since mid-May by LG Electronics, its Zenith R&D Lab, and GatesAir. The real-world field tests are said to represent an important milestone in the collaborative effort by the partners to develop core technologies behind the new standard developed by the Advanced Television Systems Committee.

    Indeed the three expect that their ‘innovations’ will be used in the majority of the baseline physical layer transmission system, which is moving toward ATSC Candidate Standard status this summer.

    In the current test in Cleveland viewers visited a number of locations, witnessing how a more robust TV system will see use in attracting mobile viewers, connecting viewers with Internet content, reaching those in difficult reception locations. Moreover it is being developed with 4KTV/UltraHD in mind.

    “We’re pleased to play an integral role in the future of TV broadcast technology, putting an unused transmitter and vacant channel to use so that the proposed transmission system could be tested throughout the day and night. These initial field test results show that ATSC 3.0 technologies are real and can deliver real benefits to broadcasters and viewers alike,” said John Cifani, chief engineer of WJW-TV, the local Fox affiliate.

    LG, GatesAir and Zenith say the key benefits of their ATSC 3.0 technologies being field tested include data throughput increases of 30% and improved multipath performance, compared with the current DTV standard for fixed and portable TV reception; enhanced indoor TV signal penetration for mobile reception thanks to flexible system parameter choices; advanced modes for delivery of very high data rates and very robust transmission capabilities.

    Commented Skott Ahn, President and Chief Technology Officer, LG Electronics: “Our technology is designed to fully meet broadcaster requirements for ATSC 3.0 and advance the goal of moving rapidly to next-generation broadcasting. Whether watching from deep inside a building or along the Lake Erie lakefront, field test results show that our ATSC 3.0-enabling technology performs exactly as expected. This means that broadcasters can look forward with confidence to reaching even more viewers with traditional television, with new Internet-based content, and with new money-making interactive services and advertising capabilities.”

    Atresmedia creates Champions League brand

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 21 July 2015



    Warming up for the Champions League broadcasts, which are returning to Atresmedia from the 2015/2016 season, the Spanish media group has launched a new brand, Champions Total, which will encompass its new football programming.


    championstotalAtresmedia, which purchased the rights for the Champions League for free-to-air broadcasting in Spain through to 2018, is to premiere its new brand on 11 August with the UEFA Super Cup match between FC Barcelona and Sevilla.

    The team of journalists and presenters who will cover the competition will be led by Matías Prats, Josep Pedrerol, Antonio Esteva, Manu Sánchez and Susana Guasch.

    The 2015/2016 season has gained special importance for Spain, as five of the country's teams may be participating. In addition to the three first teams of La Liga - FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid - and Sevilla as the European League winner, Valencia CF could take part in the Champions League if they win a classifying tournament.

    The European competition is Spain's most-watched sports competition, ahead of La Liga or the World Cup. Last year there was an average audience of 5.67 million viewers reported for RTVE which gave a share over 30%, with the final between Juventus and Barcelona hitting 6.74 million viewers and the quarter-final game between Real Madrid and Atlético being watched by 8.67 million viewers.

    The Champions League rights are to be shared with Mediapro which will manage them for pay-TV broadcasts.

    Claro Colombia to complement DTH offer with cable

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 21 July 2015



    América Móvil's Claro is to reinforce its pay-TV offer in Colombia, where it is the largest cable operator, with a direct-to-home (DTH) television service for the most remote areas of the territory through the recently launched Star One C4 satellite.


    According to Colombian media reports, América Móvil plans to initially bring satellite TV to those areas where there is no opportunity for cable or fibre-to-the-home (FTH) services.

    According to the latest figures from Business Bureau, Claro is the clear leader in Colombia, nearing three million cable subs, while DIRECTV and UNE-Tigo have half this amount and Global TV is the market's fourth largest player with around 600,000 subs.

    "The Star One C4 satellite indicates América Móvil's investment commitment in the region and reflects the intention of bringing the best of technology to the majority of Colombians, arriving where others cannot," said Juan Carlos Archila, president, Claro Colombia. "In Colombia, satellite reinforces the quality of all our services and contributes to the country's competitiveness".
