    Sky Deutschland to exit stock exchange

    Sky Deutschland will soon fully be owned by parent company Sky UK as the German pay-TV broadcaster’s shareholders approved the request by majority shareholder Sky German Holdings to squeeze out the minority shareholders and remove the company from the German stock exchange market.

    The shares of the minority shareholders will be transferred to Sky German Holdings against a cash compensation of €6.68 per share in accordance with sections 327a et seq. of the German Stock Corporation Act.

    The shareholders of Sky Deutschland have approved the transaction requested by Sky German Holdings at an extraordinary general assembly in Munich on July 22, 2015. It was the only proposal on the agenda.

    96.97% of capital stock were present at the meeting. The resolution was passed with 99.4% votes in favor while 0.6% voted against the move.

    96.05% of Sky Deutschland’s shares were previously held by Sky German Holdings and 3.95% were in free float at the German stock exchange. Sky UK’s plans to take over full control of Sky Deutschland by squeezing out the minority shareholders and taking the company off the stock market emerged in February 2015.

    Sky Sports wins Premier League near-live clip rights

    DetailsEditor | 23 July 2015



    Not content with having the lion's share of live UK rights for Premier League football, Sky Sports has now scored the rights to show clips from every game across its digital platforms.


    The three-year agreement, starting from the 2016-17 season, will see match clips being made available to both mobile and online users, with packages that will include in-match content and highlights.

    Also as part of the deal, Sky Sports has entered into an exclusive distribution partnership with News UK — whose management owns 39% of Sky — that will see clips also being made available across The Sunday Times, The Times and other newspapers' digital services. Sky Sports claims that up to 35 million users a month access its digital media services, and the company believes that the addition of Premier League highlights from all 380 matches each season will further enhance the award-winning service to customers, delivering more compelling moments on digital platforms.

    "Sky Sports is the home of the Premier League and this will allow us to offer our customers even more content across mobile and online," said Sky Sports managing director Barney Francis. "The way people watch sport is changing rapidly and this agreement ensures Sky Sports will continue to offer the best coverage across TV, mobile, online and social media. However they choose to watch, our customers will have all the defining moments from the Premier League at their fingertips for years to come."

    UK TV, films get big kick from legal downloading and streaming

    DetailsEditor | 23 July 2015



    On the same day that the BBC found out that it was losing from unauthorised global iPlayer access, the UK's Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has revealed the strength of legal online video streaming and downloading.


    An IPO survey revealed that just over three-fifths of Internet users in the UK have downloaded or streamed music, TV shows, films, computer software, videogames or e-books - up from 56% in 2013. It also showed that there was a 10% increase in UK consumers accessing content through legal services, although a fifth of consumers still access some content illegally.

    Ten million UK Internet users have accessed films online, with Netflix, Amazon and YouTube being the top platforms for film downloads and streaming. Netflix alone was responsible for 44% of all activity. By contrast, 15 million UK Internet users have accessed a TV programme online. The BBC iPlayer, You Tube and ITV Player were the top platforms for accessing TV programmes online with BBC iPlayer responsible for 62% of activity.

    The findings also show that the average quarterly spend on downloading and streaming content ranged from £6.68 for TV programmes to £20.28 for music. The most common reasons given for infringing were because it's free (49%) and convenient (43%).

    Commenting on the report, Intellectual Property Minister Baroness Neville Rolfe said: "It's great news that a huge proportion of UK consumers are going online to enjoy music, TV shows, video games and e-books legally, supporting our creative industries to grow and showing the benefits of making legal content widely available. By building a clear picture of online streaming and downloading trends we can work with industry and international partners to tackle the problems of internet piracy and increase public awareness of the ways people can download and stream legally."

    SVOD to drive OTT revenue in East Europe, Mid East, Africa

    DetailsRebecca Hawkes | 23 July 2015



    Subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) will raise 60% of the US$2,635 million in revenues for over-the-top (OTT) TV and video services in 19 countries across Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa in 2020, according to Digital TV Research.


    SVOD revenues will total $1,568 million by 2020 – up from only $3 million, or just 6% of total OTT revenues, in 2010.

    By 2020, SVOD will be found in 24.22 million homes in the selected countries, up from 69,000 in 2010 and the 3.13 million expected by the end of 2015. OTT services in 2010 reached just $52 million, with revenues predicted to rise to $616 million this year, researchers claim.

    By the end of 2015, Russia will become the largest SVOD market of the 19 countries analysed, taking on the mantle previously held by Poland. From the 22.71 million SVOD home additions between 2014 and 2020, Russia will supply 8.97 million, Turkey 2.37 million and Poland 2.07 million, predicts Digital TV Research.

    "OTT in Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa will still be an immature sector by 2020, although this is an improvement on the very immature status by end-2014 and its nearly non-existent status in 2010," said Simon Murray, principal analyst, Digital TV Research.

    The countries included in the report are Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Nigeria, Poland, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Turkey, Ukraine and the UAE.

    By 2020, 12.3% of their combined TV households will subscribe to a SVOD package, up from 0.8% by the end of last year. Penetration rates will vary considerably: from 30% in Israel to 1.5% in Egypt, says Digital TV Research.

    Australia awash with illegal digital downloads, study finds

    DetailsRebecca Hawkes | 23 July 2015



    Almost half of Australia's digital users regularly download pirated films, TV shows and music, according to a government survey.


    Respondents said illegal downloads would be reduced if legal content was cheaper (39%), more easily available (38%), and available as soon as it is released elsewhere (36%).

    In comparison, a fifth of British digital users illegally downloaded at least one digital file, found the recent study, which is based on UK Government research undertaken since 2012.

    The survey of 2,630 Australians found at least 43% of online consumers had infringed streamed video copyright. (Just over a quarter of all Australian Internet users are online consumers.)

    Some 48% of those surveyed said they illegally downloaded at least one film during the three months from March to May 2015.

    However, three-quarters of people who pirate also pay for some content, according to the report, commissioned by the Department of Communications.

    "A number of strategies had a greater likelihood of motivating those consuming a mixture of legal and illegal content than those consuming only illegal content: everything they want being available legally; everything they want being available legally as soon as it is available elsewhere; and availability of a subscription service," said the piracy study.

    The research comes after the Australian Government amended the Copyright Act 1986 as part of a crackdown on overseas websites that stream pirated TV shows and movies.

    BBC Trust makes the case for licence fee

    DetailsEditor | 23 July 2015



    The BBC Trust has carried on the corporation's fight back against cuts, calling for the BBC to remain a universal and independent broadcaster which aims to provide something for everyone.


    The Trust, the body set up to ensure that licence fee payers obtain maximum value for money, has published its initial response to the government's green paper on the BBC's charter review, and launched the first phase of its own consultation on the future of the BBC with audiences across the UK.*** The green paper response says that if the BBC is to retain a broad mission and public funding, it needs clear boundaries and independent regulation, and it sets out some thoughts on the best way of achieving this.

    In addition, the trust called for clear boundaries around the government's involvement in the BBC in future. It argued that these should include additional protections for the BBC's independence, such as an eleven-year charter to provide more time between fixed date general elections and the end of the next charter.

    Furthermore it called for a legal obligation in the next charter for the government to undertake a public process of consultation with the BBC's regulator as part of any future funding negotiations, and to seek parliamentary approval for any changes to funding. That would mean the licence fee could not be set without proper public scrutiny and debate.

    "Charter review will ultimately decide what kind of programmes and services audiences get for the BBC they pay for, so the most important voice in the debate is that of the public and we'll ensure it is heard," said BBC Trust chairman Rona Fairhead. "We welcome the government's recognition of the importance of the BBC and the value that it brings – that value is built on its providing something for everyone and its independence, which we know audiences support."

    TV3 takes Ooyala for complete video and advertising solutions

    DetailsJoseph O'Halloran | 23 July 2015



    Ireland's largest commercial broadcaster, TV3, has selected premium video publishing, analytics and monetisation firm Ooyala to power live and video-on-demand (VOD) content across all digital devices.


    Launched on 20 September 1998, becoming the country's first commercial broadcaster, TV3 is a privately owned free-to-air television network operated within Ireland. It is also a CNN affiliate.

    The broadcaster will use Ooyala's video analytics and discovery solution as its ad serving technology to maximise engagement and revenue from its over-the-top (OTT) offering. Ooyala currently provides the engine for online content for two live channels, TV3 and 3e, as well as 3player, the domestic catch-up TV experience from TV3. In tandem with Ooyala, TV3 also partnered with two Dublin based companies DV4 and Axonista to build the optimal experience for its 3player audience regardless of the device they're on. A new player for 3player is due for release later this year.

    With its new technology, TV3 believes that it can now see the full scope of how its audience is engaging with its content across all experiences. As a result, TV3 says that it is now able to make more informed decisions about its content distribution and ad strategies to boost yield across its entire video inventory. In addition the content recommendation technology allows TV3 to deliver personalised experiences for every viewer, so that audiences are engaged longer, and with increased CPMs and revenue.

    "We look forward to working with Ooyala as they have proven themselves not only as a leader in video analytics and content recommendation, but also in advertising and monetisation," revealed TV3 Group digital development manager Brendan McGillicuddy. "We see great value having our video delivery and advertising technology from the same innovative provider; not only for the benefits gained through their analytic capabilities but also having support and professional services under one roof."

    Vodafone, Orange consider Netflix partnership to compete with Telefónica

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 23 July 2015



    Spain's second and third largest telcos, Vodafone and Orange, are considering possible distribution agreements and shared offers with subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform Netflix to compete with Telefónica within the pay-TV and video industry.


    Netflix which intends to launch in Spain in October 2015, doesn't require any partners to deploy its services across the country, as it works over-the-top (OTT), but according to El Economista, an agreement with the two telcos would strengthen Netflix's deployment within the market.

    Vodafone and Orange have both have seen how competition within the VOD and pay-TV arenas has become stronger after Telefónica purchased Canal+, which has over 3.5 million subs, and its online platform Yomvi.

    Due to the high market concentration, Telefónica is being forced by the regulator CNMC to sell 50% of its broadcasting rights to any telco or operators requesting it. This makes it difficult for Vodafone and Orange to offer original content, something Netflix could provide.

    According to industry sources, both telcos are open to deals with Netflix, while developing their own, standalone platforms.

    Televisa reigns over expanding Mexican pay-TV

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 23 July 2015



    In a Mexican market still experiencing growth, Televisa is the pay-TV king, with nearly 60% of the market through five different platforms.


    The Q4 report, published by Mexico's (IFT), shows that pay-TV penetration increased by 2.2% since last year, reaching 51 in 100 homes across the country, 55% of which are via DTH (direct-to-home) satellite and 45% via cable, figures which have remained very stable.

    With a clear dominating position, Grupo Televisa owns 59.6% of the country's pay-TV market thanks to SKY (39%), Cablemás (7.7%), Izzi (5.5%), Cablecom (4.7%) and TVI (2.7%). The IFT points to increasing concentration within the pay-TV market, as Cablecom's acquisition was completed during Q3 and the company's figures have for the first time been included under Grupo Televisa.

    The ranking continues with Dish-MVS (15.6%), Megacable (15%) and Cablevisión Red (2.8%), while the rest of the market (7%) is shared by various small or local operators, some of them, such as Axtel, also showing growth.

    Satellite broadcasting is shared among Televisa's SKY (71.4%) and Dish (28.6%), while almost five in ten subscribers also choose Televisa's option for cable.

    Accounting for over $1.4 billion out of the $1.7 billion total quarterly revenues, Latin America is the most significant business region for Millicom, which has seen particular growth during Q2 in cable, specifically within the Colombian market.

    LATAM revenues were at $1.46 billion, up 21.7% compared to Q2 2014, with an EBITDA of $564 million (up 16.1%) due to strong performance from Colombia, Guatemala and Bolivia.

    "The Latin America businesses moves from strength to strength; we saw strong performances from Colombia, Guatemala and Bolivia which drove another quarter of headline revenue growth," said Mauricio Ramos, Millicom's recently appointed CEO. "Further progress has been made in Paraguay with a return to revenue and EBITDA growth although this was adversely affected by currency movements."

    Together with mobile financial services (MFS), cable was the sector in which Millicom saw largest growth. Cable and digital media revenue grew by 24.6%, with total revenue generating units (RGUs) increasing by 61,000 from Q1 2015 to 5.24 million.

    After UNE's integration with Tigo in Colombia, the Caribbean country has become one of the most important territories for Millicom, as revenue grew by 87% to $533 million (including $275 million from UNE).

    In Bolivia, Q2 revenue grew by 9% to $128 million, with cable revenue up 80%, while in Paraguay revenue grew by 2% to $170 million with growth from cable and MFS offsetting pressure on the mobile business.

    "We now have a road map to focus on two phases of opportunity in our fast growth emerging markets: building customer focused mobile products and services that can be monetised; and expanding our cable footprint to capture the emerging opportunity," said Ramos.

    EBS takes EPG data feed to Euronews Mexico

    DetailsJuan Fernandez Gonzalez | 23 July 2015



    In its first move into the Latin American market, UK-based provider of electronic programme guide (EPG) data for broadcasters, EBS, is delivering EPG data for the Euronews service in Mexico on DISH.


    PAWAIn keeping with its existing operations across multiple platforms in 158 countries, Euronews Mexico provides rolling news channel broadcasts.

"Having worked with EBS in our other territories, we know that it has both the accuracy and expertise to provide us with the right solution, as well as being able to quickly adapt our EPG requirements as and when required."

    "We're delighted to announce the expansion of our services with Euronews into the Latin American market." added Keith Bedford, managing director, EBS. "Taking a channel's EPG data to a new territory can be challenging, which is why we provide an outsourced solution that smoothes the way for broadcasters."
