    4K Summit: Ultra HD to experience dramatic uptick in 2017

    Editor | 07 November 2015



    Don’t believe the hype or the pessimism: Ultra HD is set for a real take off in the 2017-2018 period according to the President of the Ultra HD Forum, Thierry Faultier.


    The executive, also VP of Video Strategy for Harmonic, told delegates at the 4K Summit in Seville that services were about to come on-stream in 2016 and that dramatic changes were just about to happen in 2016, and by the year after around a fifth of homes in western Europe would have a set capable of Ultra HD reception. Moreover, a ‘decent amount’ of these sets would be UHD Phase II compatible. Phase I compatible sets would, he added, be at the vanguard of the market, taking off with VOD and over-the-top platform providers.

    Faultier stressed that there were caveats to his expectations, especially related to HDR and HFR standards that may be in use. He warned that technology had to be backwards compatible at a display level and not with set top boxes. He identified other Phase II challenges such as broadcast decoders needing to support all combinations of technology, especially adaptive bit rate decoders. This would lead to a “very complicated period for chip manufacturers. Interoperability [is also] quite complex but is the sad reality of today,” he said.

    One other issue that Faultier accepted could delay roll-out, and which may be attractive to broadcasters, would be providers adding HDR to HDTV feeds.

    Telefónica accelerates pay-TV across Latin America

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez| 07 November 2015



    Pay-TV is becoming one of Telefónica's quickest-growing operations worldwide, as the number of subscribers in Latin America have increased by 17% up to the end of Q3.


    However, mobile remains Telefónica's greatest income generator in the region, with 111 million subscriptions, of which 6 million are 4G.

    Pay-TV continues to show strength in Peru, where Movistar TV is the market leader with nearly 1.5 million subs, almost 65% of the market.

    In Chile Telefónica nears 700,000 subs, being the second largest player in a market clearly dominated by VTR. Movistar TV's platform grows through convergent offers with broadband and phone services and thanks to a strong HDTV coverage.

    The Spanish telco owns nearly half a million subs in Colombia, where América Móvil's Claro, DirecTV and UNE-Millicom top the market.

    Only during Q3, Telefónica invoiced €3,634 million (12.6% more than Q3 2014) in Latin America, nearing the €11 billion barrier during the first nine months of the year. The figure represents almost a third of Telefónica's whole business worldwide, which has generated €35,337 million since January.

    OTT, STB boost video ad viewing

    Monetization of digital content across devices other desktops and laptops reached nearly 50% of video ad views in Q3 2015, according to FreeWheel’s latest Video Monetization Report.

    The findings of the report, which explores trends in premium video in the US and Europe, were discussed at the Future TV Advertising Forum and also showed that the trend was driven by strong growth in OTT.

    Though accounting for 13% of the ad view share, the figure was 157% up the corresponding quarter in 2014. Smartphones claimed 19% (+67% year-on-year), tablets 10% (+42%) and STB VOD, included for the first time, 6%.

    The report notes that for programmers that have enabled STB VOD, the box in the living room accounted for 18% of total video ad views. This made it the second largest device following the desktop and laptop.

    In the OTT market in the third quarter, Apple TV (38%) and Roku (31%) accounted for 31% of total ad views.

    They were followed by gaming consoles (20%), Chromecast (9%), smart TVs (1%) and Amazon (1%).

    The report also says that the authors are very encouraged by the STB and OTT numbers in Q3.

    These, in their view, are a strong indication that premium content is now finding its way into the living room but with all the benefits of the digital world.

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 03 December 2015

    A major part of the schedule will be the six Star Wars films which are set to air on the linear signal as well as on the video-on-demand (VOD) platform, Yomvi, targeting binge-viewers.

    In-house productions such as El Imperio de los Fans (The Fans' Empire), special programmes and related documentaries will also be broadcast.

    In addition, Movistar+ has deployed a second-screen, social TV strategy through its website. Named #movistarwars, it includes quizzes, events and audience participation through social networks.

    Just one in ten Mexicans subscribe to OTT

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 03 December 2015



    Official figures have thrown a bucket of cold water on Mexico's over-the-top (OTT) industry, as only 10% people are subscribing to such a service.

    According to the Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (IFT) report about consumption habits of telecom services, Mexicans are not cutting the cord as other reports had previously suggested. Only one in ten respondents to the survey said they were paying for an OTT video or audio service such as Netflix, Claro Video or iTunes.

    Subscription TV is led by direct-to-home (DTH) operators, which are delivering pay-TV to over 60% of the country's subscriber base.

    Although no further TV-related figures have been published by the IFT, the Mexican OTT market is clearly dominated by Netflix, the same as in the rest of Latin America. However, other operators are looking at OTT opportunities, such as Televisa which intends to relaunch its platform Veo during 2016.

    DataFactory and Reportv have announced a Latin American partnership to share data and know-how around the business of sports statistics for TV.

    The agreement enables Reportv to integrate DataFactory's statistical products into its portfolio of programming, while DataFactory will use that programming to generate more data.

    “We have been working to enlarge our service portfolio, and this agreement will enable both of us to combine our solutions and benefit our clients,” said Jorge Gambier, marketing director, Reportv. “This is the beginning of a partnership which will increase our global presence.”

    The Argentinean company Reportv specializes in TV data and programming products such as apps with schedules or programming Web search. It currently processes data for over 2,000 channels, video-on-demand (VOD) services and over-the-top (OTT) platforms.

    “We are on the top of the regional market, and we believe our product has no limits, which is why we are only looking to grow,” added Ernesto Cambursano, CEO, DataFactory. “Reportv will be essential for this goal, as it's already one of the best companies in the business and has extensive experience.”

    During the last two years, DataFactory has also been strengthening its position as a sports data provider for TV by, for example, being part of Chile's Copa América last summer.

    RT reaches 3BN views on YouTube

    Joseph O'Halloran | 03 December 2015


    Russia Today is claiming undisputed YouTube news leadership saying it has racked up three billion views and clocked three million subscribers on the platform.

    The news organisation adds that the combined number of views on all RT’s YouTube channels in all its languages is more than twice that of CNN, and three times that of euronews. Moreover, it pointed out that it is now nearly ten times ahead of the BBC news platforms in the same online video measure.

    “Achieving success like this shows how viewers value legal, quality, professional and Internet audience-oriented content,” remarked head of Google Russia, Yulia Solovyeva, when RT International became the first TV news channel to reach a billion views on YouTube, in 2013. “This is an amazing achievement. We are very proud and pleased that RT has reached this figure. A billion views is an important milestone to which many others aspire.”

    “To establish such a connection with the audience and attract viewers so that they come back to you again and again so as to hit a billion views – that’s a remarkable achievement,” added Robert Kyncl, Google VP and head of content for YouTube, on that occasion.

    In a pan-Asia deal, Fox International Channels Asia Pacific has acquired the drama Dead Rising: Watchtower, based on the global hit video franchise, for broadcast throughout the region. Live-action drama Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn (90’), also from Content Television’s ‘game-to-screen’ branded franchise portfolio, has been signed by GMA Network in the Philippines, alongside The Ark, a retelling of the biblical story of Noah and the ark.

    Also in the Philippines, Solar Entertainment has picked up a package of drama titles headlined by Cyberbully, while China’s state broadcaster CCTV has taken on a raft of Content Television’s TV movies in a deal brokered by Hong Kong Happiness. This includes He Who Dares: Downing Street Siege; Earthbound starring David Morrissey and Rafe Spall; Pete’s Christmas; and Driving Lessons starring Julie Walters and Rupert Grint.

    “We’re delighted to announce these new deals,” commented Diana Zakis, VP sales, Latin America and Asia at Content Television. “Demand for international scripted drama content continues to be on the rise throughout Asia, and we’re seeing a lot of interest for our new programming as well as our library feature films and series. With their well-established fan base, our ‘game-to-screen’ properties always resonate particularly well in the region, and we’re expecting our new feature Halo: The Fall of Reach to be very popular when it makes its debut in Singapore.

    ESPN revamps Spanish-language online presence

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 03 December 2015


    ESPN has relaunched its Spanish-language website portfolio targeting Latin Americans and the US Hispanic population.

    espndeportesLocal ESPN sites in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela, and ESPNdeportes.com for US Hispanic will get a refreshed platform with revamped content.

    Built on the same technology and design as the April-premiered new ESPN.com, the sites have been re-engineered to make content easily discoverable and deliver a more engaging experience for fans. In addition, the new sites will be responsive, reflecting ESPN’s mobile-first focus with digital products.

    “Bringing a uniformly great experience to sports fans all over the world is central to our mission at ESPN,” said John Kosner, EVP, ESPN digital and print media. “The new websites will be followed by new Spanish-language editions of the ESPN app next spring. Utilising our global technology infrastructure while we programme content and sell advertising locally is a powerful, winning combination.”

    The features of the new Spanish-language sites include enhanced delivery of video and audio content, a new content management system, coverage of more and diverse international sports and improvements in speed and performance.

    Strengthening its online presence is part of ESPN’s realignment ahead of its Rio Olympics broadcast next summer, which also includes a solid TV everywhere presence across Latin America.
