    Amazon explores TV service

    Amazon is said to be investigating launching a dedicated live TV service, according to US media reports.

    Bloomberg reported that the electronic retailer, that already has a range of streaming devices, was in ‘preliminary stages’ with networks NBC and CBS.

    Earlier this year it was reported that Apple was also planning a live TV service in the United States, but by August the project was said to have been put on hold.

    The somewhat curious nature of the venture is that the introduction of a live service is something of a mismatch with the perception created by streaming services that the world is on demand.

    Bosnia new country on HbbTV map

    WATCH VIDEO.Bosnian satellite DTH platform Hayat TV has launched its HbbTV service portal.

    The Hayat TV HbbTV portal is available on the platform’s own Hayat TV channel and will be activated by pressing the red button.

    The portal is still in a test phase and offers a number of categories: news, weather, TV programs, Twitter (#HayatTVBiH), and games.

    HbbTV by Hayat is a first in the country, as no local TV station in BiH or in the region offers HbbTV. Until now, only foreign channels, such as RTL and ProSiebenSat1, featured HbbTV portals.

    The portal was build with help of the New Media People (NMP) agency, backed by a team from Slovenia, and Castoola, in cooperation with the editorial and digital team of Hayat.

    Hayat also has an app for iOS and Android devices, and will soon launch a new web portal Hayat.ba.

    “Over the last four years we have built a high quality audience for well made American history, science and current affairs programmes,” said Richard Kingsbury, general manager, PBS America.

    “We’ve always had a lot of interest from free to air viewers who enjoy quality docs and so it’s wonderful to be able to reach them at last. I’m confident that the Freesat launch will further accelerate the growth of PBS America.”

    Paul Gilshan, director of marketing and communications at Freesat, said: “With over 200 channels on offer to our viewers, we’re always pleased to bring a wide range of compelling programming to the UK free-to-air market and, with PBS America now joining Freesat, the line-up just got even better giving viewers the opportunity to watch award-winning factual programming, totally subscription-free.”

    Showing programmes from America’s Public Broadcasting Service, the channel first launched in the UK on November 1, 2011 and already available to Sky and Virgin Media homes.

    OTT took centre stage at this year’s MIPCOM

    Over 13,700 delegates from 108 countries, including more than 4,800 acquisition executives, of which 1,600 were acquiring for digital platforms, gathered in Cannes for the 31st edition of MIPCOM.

    Following Saturday’s floods, it was almost business as usual at MIPCOM. WiFi adn internet access was difficult at most places, people were lining up before ATMs to get their hands on cash, there was no hot water in some hotels and a few events were moved to another location/

    OTT took centre stage at this year’s MIPCOM, bringing together international broadcasters, the US majors, TV production and sales companies, digital powerhouses such as YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Facebook, Amazon Studios, Twitter and newer OTT players like UK-based Hopster or Icflix Media in the Middle East, MIPCOM focused considerable conference attention on how OTT, SVOD and streaming services are transforming business models and strategies.

    According to Andrew Moss, CCO at media strategy consultancy Oliver & Ohlbaum, audiences of the future will consume content by “distribution methods we haven’t even contemplated yet.” He told a Carriage Deal Forum meeting that opportunities remain for channel operators, particularly in the BRICS countries.

    Speaker after MIPCOM speaker talked of the power and importance of great content and the necessity to form strategic partnerships in the multiplatform entertainment ecosystem.

    Media Mastermind keynote Sophie Turner Laing, Endemol Shine Group’s CEO, poured cold water on those who predict the death of TV. She told her MIPCOM audience that in one of the most exciting times for the business, forming partnerships with different media creators will be the path forward in the multiplatform world. She said that Icon, the new Endemol Shine joint venture with YouTube superstar Michelle Phan, was an example of this kind of partnership.

    Endemol Shine generated plenty of media coverage at MIPCOM as it announced a multi-year strategic partnership with DreamWorks Animation’s online youth network AwesomenessTV. The deal sees Endemol Shine helping to launch AwesomenessTV channels in new markets including France, UK, Germany, Spain and Brazil.

    ITV’s CEO, Adam Crozier made a stirring defence of traditional television telling his MIPCOM keynote audience that “channel brands are not dead…TV is the most powerful medium in the world – the internet would love to have what we have.”

    Turner LATAM selects Toolbox for TV everywhere authentication

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez| 09 October 2015


    The Cloud Pass authentication platform designed by Argentina's Toolbox has been selected by Turner for its TV everywhere platform, Space Go, in Latin America.


    smartboxturnerToolbox, which continues growing as a solutions provider for TV everywhere and over-the-top (OTT) services in Latin America, will enable Space's subscribers to login on Android and iOS mobile screens.

    Through a single sign-in process, mobile users will be able to consume live and video-on-demand (VOD) content without having to repeat the authentication process when choosing a different device.

    "Users will be able to start watching a movie on one screen and continue on a different one, whether it's a tablet or a smartphone," explained Pamela Valdecantos, account executive, Toolbox. "We have designed a secure but simple process which improves user experience."

    Cloud Pass is cloud-based and connects programme makers such as Turner with pay-TV operators which distribute the signals. "Content programmers can be connected to different operators, or a single operator can be connected to different signals. Everything is possible with a single log-in process," explained Valdecantos.

    Toolbox's authentication service leads the ID management market in Latin America and is integrated with many TV everywhere and OTT services in the region, including DirecTV, FOX and Megacable.

    Univision takes mobile path to 'billennials'

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 09 October 2015


    With a highly mobile, millennial and bilingual audience, Univision Digital is deploying several immersive initiatives in an attempt to scale real-time viewing experiences for an audience who demands them on-the-go.


    According to the company, Univision Digital's audience is mobile, spending 36% more time on smartphones than the general population. And it has nearly double the live TV viewership of the next media company, with 91% of viewers watching live during prime time, compared with 56% for NBC.

    Both characteristics are being capitalised by the company, which is challenging its app development partner, Screenz, to enable scale, functionality and gamification across second-screen experiences.

    Particularly focusing on 'billennials' - bilingual millennials - Univision Digital has been deploying several innovations, starting with a Snapchat partnership to create Live Stories around Univision events, which began with a US vs. Mexico friendly football game.

    The network has also launched Conecta, a second-screen, social TV app which provides viewers with the chance to become a judge for La Banda, real-time polling, and the ability to create their own band; and UniNovelas, an app with real-time polls and predictors and a news feed for the soap opera Antes Muerta Que Lichita.

    The series has also launched live shows, and 60 have already sold out across Argentina. In addition, Esperanza Mia merchandise has taken off, with sales of T-shirts and CDs highlighting the show's popularity.

    Planeta Junior, a children's and youth entertainment company owned by the Planeta and De Agostini Group, is also attending MIPCOM and MIP JUNIOR to showcase its own content portfolio, including the series Mutant Busters, Bubble Bip and Oliver Rock.

    Televisa's latest soap tops US Hispanic prime-time

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez| 09 October 2015


    Exceeding even the ratings of Sabado Gigante, Televisa's latest telenovela, Amores Con Trampa, led the US Hispanic's prime time during its finale.


    The soap opera about the fictional Velesca and Carmona families got higher ratings than El Señor de Los Cielos, Señora Acero and Sabado Gigante, among other popular productions targeting the Hispanic audience.

    Amores Con Trampa, produced by Emilio Larrosa, has been airing on Univision since March, strengthening a Hispanic-based Mexico-US commercial relationship which has expanded with Antes Muertas Que Lichita, the new Televisa telenovela also airing on the American network.

    Euskaltel closes buyout of fibre operator R

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez| 09 October 2015


    Euskaltel has concluded the acquisition of regional fibre operator R for €1,190 million, €35 million more than initially agreed.


    Euskaltel, which is immersed in a period of expansion, including recently going public, will own 100% of R's stocks, 70% bought from Rede Brigantium and 30% from Abanca. The operation includes the nearly €300 million of debt accumulated by the Galician fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) company.

    Now, R, which will keep its brand and a certain independency within its regional market, will launch new stock, of which former shareholder Abanca intends to buy for €81 million.

    The deal has to be approved by the board of shareholders, but no opposition is expected. The Comision Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (CNMC), Spain's competition watchdog, also has to green-light the agreement.

    On a commercial level, Euskaltel will now own over 725,000km of fibre optic cable serving telecom services including pay-TV and broadband to some 715,000 customers.
