In addition, mobile data traffic is expected to grow seven-fold in the region by 2020.

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 21 September 2015


    Warming up for the Star Wars Episode VII movie premiere, scheduled for 18 December, Disney and Telefónica have inked a content agreement to fill Movistar+'s schedule with Star Wars programming and launch a themed channel two weeks prior to the premiere.

    Competition, convergence drive football prices down in Spain

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 21 September 2015


    While Spanish pay-TV usually commands Europe's most expensive prices for football content, this season's new scenario – with more convergent players and a different rights management model – has seen prices lowered, now ranking among the continent's cheapest.


    comparaisoAccording to research from comparison site Comparaiso.es, a Spanish package with Internet, phone and pay-TV including all the football programming costs €46.05 on average per month. Europe's average price is €66 and the most expensive country is Portugal, with an average subscription of €76.38.

    But the largest difference are in the reduced pay-TV packages. Currently, it's possible to subscribe, due to seasonal promotions, to all the football content for €6 (last year the same channels cost €35.45 per month), while in Europe the average price is €30.41 per month. France is the most expensive country regarding football-themed channels, with an average subscription of €46.40 per month.

    One of the key factors for the fall in prices seems to be convergence, as telcos are using pay-TV and premium content as a hook for packaged triple- and quad-play offers.

    The flip side to this is that non-packaged offers becomes expensive. If a subscriber tries to pay for football through a cable or IPTV provider without also paying for broadband connection, the price rockets.

    "It's remarkable Spain has moved from being Europe's most expensive country for watching football to being the cheapest," said Alicia Navas, director, Comparaiso.es. "But in areas with poorer coverage not all the offers or every channel are available. Depending on where the fans are living they might be forced to pay more than fans living in the bigger cities".

    Thai NBTC works to combat DTT delay in next stage of transition

    Rebecca Hawkes | 21 September 2015


    Thailand may not meet its 90% target for transition from analogue to digital television transmission (DTT) by its May 2016 target, the broadcasting commission has warned.


    This third stage of digitisation is likely to face delays while existing telecommunications facilities managed by state telcos such as Telecom Organisation of Thailand (TOT) are upgraded for use as TV relay sites for digital broadcasters, according to local reports.

    "We are, however, trying our best to work closely with all providers of digital TV [transmission] networks and related parties, such as facility providers, namely CAT Telecom and TOT, in order to solve these problems and reach 90% coverage by May next year," Supinya Klangnarong, a member of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), told The Nation.

    If broadcasters, including the Thai Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), the Army and MCOT, wish to use facilities, managed by TOT, they may be required to invest in new equipment alongside that operated by the telco, she added.

    The third stage of Thailand's digitisation programme requires that each digital TV network provider must be able to cover at least 90% of the country's 22.3 million households by May 2016. Around 170 relay sites will reportedly be required.

    Currently, 80% of homes in Thailand can receive four public service and 24 commercial digital TV channels.

    The next part of the transition to DTT will see Thai PBC's analogue service switched off in three districts of Chiang Mai (Chaiya Prakan, Fang and Mae Ai), Koh Samui in Surat Thani, and Roi Et Province between December 2015 and January 2016.

    Sri Lanka's Dialog TV to air all Rugby World Cup matches

    Rebecca Hawkes | 21 September 2015


    Pay-TV operator Dialog Television has gained exclusive rights to broadcast Sony Kix in Sri Lanka and, combined with sister channel Sony Six, will provide full coverage of all Rugby World Cup matches.


    Sony Six and Sony Kix can be activated on Dialog Television for LKR99 per month or LKR4 per day, with personal video recording (PVR) features.

    Via the two Sony sports channels, Dialog will air every match of the ongoing rugby tournament, which concludes with the final on 31 October at London's Twickenham Stadium at 9.30pm, Sri Lanka time.

    Dialog may have all of the action, but it is not the only broadcaster in Sri Lanka providing coverage of the Rugby World Cup. National TV network Rupavahini will show five group games live and knockout games from the tournament in England. The matches carried on Sony Six will also be available on Sri Lanka Telecom's pay-TV network PEO TV.

    Hathway, GTPL partner for carriage of cable TV content

    Rebecca Hawkes | 21 September 2015


    Indian multi-system operator (MSO) Hathway Cable and Datacom will work with its subsidiary Gujarat Telelink Pvt Ltd (GTPL) to jointly negotiate content carriage deals with broadcasters for the first time.


    The agreement will cover pan-Indian subscription agreements and carriage-cum-placement deals for both digital and analogue cable TV networks. Additionally, Hathway and GTPL will mutually agree commercials to run across all their subsidiaries and related entities with broadcasters.

    "Our mutual understanding with GTPL will bring in better synergies with a more focused, proactive approach in order to build clarity within the value chain, avoid duplication of time and effort, thus, paving the way for systematic functioning," said TS Panesar, video business president, Hathway.

    Anirudh Singh Jadeja, managing director, GTPL, added: "We are happy to align collectively to negotiate all further deals as it will ensure that resources are best utilised and optimum output is achieved."

    The move follows a similar tie-up between Essel Group's direct-to-home operator Dish TV and Siti Cable to increase the power of distribution platforms when dealing with broadcasters.
