    Irdeto, Samsung, SMiT launch D2TV system in Indonesia

    DetailsRebecca Hawkes | 23 July 2015



    Subscribers to Indonesia's Transvision TV can now tune into its digital content without a set-top box, instead using a combination of USB-based content management technology from SMiT and Irdeto with a Samsung television set.


    The innovative delivery of the pay-TV service works through the integration of Irdeto's Keys & Credentials service and conditional access system (CAS) and SMiT's USB conditional access module (CAM) with certain Samsung TVs (models 32J4120, 40J5120 and 48J5120), which do not need IP connectivity.

    "We are pleased to be working with partners like Irdeto, Samsung and SMiT, to bring the world's first set-top box-free broadcast D2TV (Direct-2-TV) system to consumers in Indonesia, a promising market that is rapidly growing and highly competitive and where its population's income per capita is constantly rising," said Hengkie Liwanto, CEO, Transvision.

    "This partnership provides operators like ourselves excellent mobility to introduce a pay-TV service to customers who want a simple to use solution and still receive great content."

    Transvision is offering instalment-based incentives for subscribers to take advantage of the new D2TV system.

    "We are excited to work with Transvision in delivering the first pay-TV service that is integrated directly to the TV and we believe that through a strong integrated partnership with Samsung and SMiT, Transvision will be one of the leading providers in the industry. They are not just first in Indonesia but first in the world to offer something as unique as this," said Bengt Jonsson, vice president, sales, APAC, Irdeto.

    Discovery to acquire all of Eurosport

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 23 July 2015



    Discovery Communications has agreed to acquire the remaining part of Eurosport that it didn't already own, for $534 million.


    Discovery will purchase the 49% stake of the Paris-based sports programmer from TF1 Group. The news comes just over a year after the cable giant took a controlling interest in the company.

    "Discovery Communications is excited to expand and deepen our investment in Eurosport as we continue to strengthen our newest global brand with locally relevant sports rights that create value for fans, advertisers and distributors," Discovery CEO David Zaslav said in a statement.

    Eurosport recently snagged the European television rights for the Olympic Games, effective for most of Europe from 2018, and in France and the UK from 2022. Under the terms of the €1.3 billion deal (£922 million), Discovery and Eurosport will develop a dedicated Olympic TV channel across Europe.

    The coup means that the BBC will no longer have the direct rights to the games in the UK from 2022 onwards, although Discovery could lease back the rights to the broadcaster.

    TV advertising falls in Q2 — and with no end in sight

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 23 July 2015



    Digital is beginning to take a big toll on the traditional video revenue model: television advertising fell 5% in Q2 2015 — and the road ahead doesn't look much better.


    The standard media index (SMI), which tracks 80% of US ad agency spending, found that broadcast TV ad spending slipped the most, down 10%. Cable TV dollars fared better, only slipping 3%.

    There are a couple of good reasons for the issue. June's overall numbers were negatively impacted on a year-on-year basis by last year's World Cup, for one thing. Last year, the men's FIFA World Cup soccer tournament generated more than an estimated $500 million in TV ad spending. To put that in perspective, when you take sports out, TV ad spending fell only 3% for the period.

    SMI chief commercial officer James Fennessy said that the beautiful game is not the only culprit. "There are some underlying factors that are contributing to a deeper malaise," he said. "Soft ratings and ongoing measurement issues continue to impact television's results, and we also saw a slight slowdown in the explosive growth from digital, which points to marketers focusing more closely on return on investment."

    Some industry-watchers also said that the future isn't exactly bright.

    "While it's hard to know for sure how much the TV networks locked down in advanced ad sales this upfront season, most industry watchers expect this year's upfront to be at least as bad as last year's, when cable upfront commitments slipped and broadcast upfront sales fell at least 5%," reported the Wall Street Journal. "Ad buyers have said more marketers are holding back their TV dollars to buy ad time closer to the air date or shifting dollars to digital media."

    Apple sees 38% jump in profit

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 23 July 2015



    CE giant Apple just can't do anything wrong as it has revealed a 38% growth in profit for its fiscal third quarter in its latest earnings report.


    The gains were mainly due to healthy iPhone sales (there was a 35% surge there) and especially big growth in China, where sales more than doubled, and they lifted Apple's cash reserves to a record $203 billion.

    However strong the gains were, iPhone unit sales of 47.5 million were still down about 23% from its fiscal Q2 — the result of the company lowering iPhone inventory by 600,000 units during the quarter.

    Undoubtedly the flagship product, sales of the video-friendly iPhone made up about 63% of Apple's overall sales for FQ3 2015, compared with 53% in the year-ago period and less than half three years ago. A big part of that is its new-found success in China, where revenue more than doubled to $13.23 billion and sales rose 87%.

    Apple doesn't break out the performance of products in its 'other' category, which includes the iWatch, iPod, Apple TV and Beats accessories. However, sales of that segment rose 49% to $2.64 billion.

    Apple's profit in the quarter rose to $10.7 billion from $7.74 billion in the year-ago period. Revenue jumped 33% to $49.61 billion.

    Movistar TV leads growing Peruvian pay-TV sector

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 06 August 2015


    In a highly concentrated market, Telefónica's pay-TV operator Movistar TV is leading the sector in Peru, while subscribers continue to grow steadily, reaching 1.5 million by the end of Q1 2015.


    According to figures published by the Organismo Supervisor de la Inversión Privada en Telecomunicaciones (Osiptel), Peru's pay-TV sector has grow by 1.83% during the first three months of the year, and by 5.76% when compared with Q1 2014.

    As previously reported, the market is highly concentrated, and Movistar TV, América Móvil's Claro and DIRECTV gather 93.5% of subs. Indeed, Telefónica's operator garners 64.8% of the market, with Peru being the platform's strongest market in Latin America.

    Movistar TV nears one million subs, Claro TV has 225,000 (15% share) and DIRECTV 205,000 (13.7%).

    While other pay-TV markets in LATAM are cooling down, Peru keeps growing at a good pace. Some analysts believe growth won't come from largest markets but will be led by countries like Peru, whose economy are predicted to grow at 12% through 2019; Costa Rica and Guatemala, with growth rates over 9%; and Ecuador, growing by 7-8%.

    Verizon adds Discovery content to mobile OTT service

    Michelle Clancy | 06 August 2015



    Verizon is adding content from Discovery networks to its upcoming mobile-first over-the-top (OTT) service.


    The deal will include long- and short-form programming, according to Discovery CEO David Zaslav. Verizon has already signed content deals with Scripps Networks Interactive and ESPN. Verizon also has deals with Vice Media and YouTube programmer AwesomenessTV, among other content companies.

    "This deal extends our platform reach to Verizon customers beyond our traditional pay-TV customer base and adds yet another source to our distribution revenue stream," he told analysts during the second quarter earnings call.

    New details recently leaked regarding the service. Reportedly, the service will be called Go90, and will start off as a free, ad-supported offering. Verizon will bill it as "live music, exclusive events, best of Web content, sports, prime time and more," the report said.

    "We wanted to create a mobile-first, video-based app that can keep up with you and your on-the-go social life. One that features completely immersive live and on-demand content, no matter where you are or where you're going. No cord required."

    Verizon is planning to kick off the service in late summer. In all, it should have 20 to 30 channels later this year.
