    Warner Bros leads $15.8MN financing for Le Bron-led sports network Uninterrupted

    Editor | 03 December 2015


    LeBron James and Maverick Carter-owned lifestyle sports content multimedia network Uninterrupted has pulled in $15.8 million in new financing.

    The capital raised in the round led by Warner Bros Entertainment and Turner Sports will see use allowing the growing athlete point-of-view platform to develop exclusive content, elevate the brand, expand to additional platforms, and further engage potential partners. The fundraising also expands Turner Sports’ role in the company as an equity partner and primary sales arm. In addition, building on its existing role as the platform’s original content host, Turner’s Bleacher Report and Uninterrupted will have a preferred content relationship.

    Part of Uninterrupted’s planned long-term growth includes expansion onto new platforms, with the venture also announcing a new multi-year deal with go90, a mobile-first platform, to provide content, original series, and exclusive athlete point-of-view videos. The go90 platform becomes Uninterrupted’s third distribution stream following the multimedia company’s presence on Turner’s Bleacher Report and the recently announced partnership with Facebook to host 360 videos. The go90 app is available from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

    “The best thing about is Uninterrupted is there are so many creative opportunities for athletes to tell their stories," commented basketball legend LeBron. "I'm excited to be partnering with important, innovative companies like Warner Brothers and Turner to keep building Uninterrupted as a place for athletes to go to connect with fans and share their stories in a different way.”

    “LeBron and Maverick bring incredible energy, focus and creativity to everything they do and are excellent partners with us in TV, film and digital,” added Craig Hunegs, president business and strategy, Warner Bros Television Group. “Joining forces with LeBron, other world-class athletes and Bleacher Report to aggressively build Uninterrupted was an easy decision that’s great for fans and great for Warner Bros.”

    Star India inks content deal with HBO

    Rebecca Hawkes | 03 December 2015


    21st Century Fox-owned broadcaster Star India has secured the exclusive local rights to Game of Thrones, True Detective and other HBO-produced hit TV shows.

    These, along with Silicon Valley, Veep and Leftovers will all air on Star India from January 2016, rather than their current Indian home channel HBO Defined. The latter will be discontinued at the end of the year, following the end of HBO’s partnership with Eros International in April.

    The new deal also includes forthcoming HBO original shows Westworld and Vinyl, directed by Martin Scorsese, which will premiere on Star India’s pay-TV network on 14 February 2016.

    The shows will be first released on Star’s digital platform hotstar, as well as the broadcaster’s English language channels.

    “Star will become the exclusive destination for screening HBO content in India – once again re-setting the benchmark for quality and depth of content offering for its viewers. Fans will be able to watch their favourite HBO Original programmes on hotstar on the same day as the telecast in the United States. Viewers will also be able to see the HBO Original programming on Star’s English channels,” said Uday Shankar, CEO, Star India.

    HBO Asia CEO Jonathan Spink added: “HBO is delighted to enter this new chapter in India with Star. Through the first release of our shows on hotstar, Indian audiences will now have unprecedented flexibility in how they consume HBO's much loved premium programming.”

    HBO library shows, such as Entourage, Band of Brothers, The Sopranos and Curb Your Enthusiasm are also included in the deal.

    The second channel previously operated jointly between HBO and Eros International in India, the movie-oriented HBO Hits, is to be relaunched as HBO HD in the first quarter of 2016.

    MTN’s VOD platform renamed VU

    Rebecca Hawkes | 03 December 2015


    South African video-on-demand (VOD) platform FrontRow has been rebranded VU by its owners MTN and Discover Digital.

    Subscription prices for the VOD service, pronounced ‘View’, have also been cut in line with increasing competition in the market, with the MaxVU promotional option matching the ZAR99 per month offer from Naspers’ ShowMax. Subscriptions to VU are also available per weekend and on a pay-per-movie basis.

    The service carries content from the large Hollywood studios, along with programming from BBC Worldwide, Endemol and Freemantle.

    Subscribers can pay via credit card, an MTN mobile account or deducted from pre-paid airtime, providing there is sufficient credit. When content is streamed from VU using an MTN Sim card, connected to the ‘myMTN’ or ‘Internet’ access point names, users’ data allowances will not be eaten into.

    Users of PremierVU can rent films from between ZAR15-27 each, while full access for a weekend can be bought for ZAR39.

    Pay-TV subscriber dissatisfaction grows in Q3

    Michelle Clancy | 03 December 2015


    In the third quarter of 2015, 8.1% of pay-TV subscribers have switched providers in the last three months, according to the latest Digitalsmiths Video Trends Report.

    The survey found that the news for pay-TV gets worse from there. In the next six months, an aggregate of 46.5% of respondents in its survey plan to either cut pay-TV service altogether (4.8%), change to another pay-TV provider (7.2%), switch to an online app or rental service (2.7%), or are thinking of changing providers (31.8%).

    Of the 46.5% of respondents who plan to make a change or are undecided, 48.2% would stay if their provider released new functionality that made it easier to find something to watch.

    Costs meanwhile continue to go up. A full 60.7% of respondents spend over $100 a month with their pay-TV provider, an increase of 3.3% over two years. It is important to note that a relatively sizable audience (23.9%) of respondents pay over $151 on a monthly basis. Additionally, 40.6% of respondents are paying more for pay-TV services now than they were 12 months ago.

    These expanding costs continue to threaten the incumbent position of pay-TV providers, Digitalsmiths concluded in the report. The report said that while 76% of respondents were satisfied in Q3 2015, it is imperative for pay-TV providers to focus on the 24% who are unsatisfied — which has grown 2.5% over the Q3 2013 survey results. The top three reasons for dissatisfaction are: increasing fees for cable/satellite service; increasing fees for Internet service; and poor customer service.

    Samsung leads 4K TV shipments

    Michelle Clancy | 03 December 2015


    By mid-2015, more Samsung 4KTV sets were sold than any other brand says Parks Associates research.

    The data found that the Korean CE giant accounted for 28% of 4KTV purchases made within the last 12 months to US broadband households. Of the remaining brands, 17% of consumers who purchased a 4KTV in the past 12 months bought an LG, 13% bought a Sony, and 11% purchased a Vizio.

    The firm also found that Best Buy was the leading retailer, capturing more than 40% of 4KTV purchases.

    "For both flat-panel purchasers and the sub-group of 4KTV purchasers, 44% made the purchase after seeing the product for a good price, so the major purchase motivator for flat-panel and 4KTVs was not substantially different," said Barbara Kraus, director of research, Parks Associates.

    "However, 11% of 4KTV purchasers were motivated to buy after learning about the TV's features, compared to 3% of flat-panel TV purchasers."

    Parks reported that 19% of US broadband households intend to purchase a flat-panel TV set by the end of 2015. Roughly 40% of those households are looking for a 4K TV set, which is approximately 7.5% of US broadband households, while 42% of US broadband households indicate they are not familiar with 4K technology. Parks Associates reported that low familiarity, low willingness to pay premium prices, content concerns and a cooling market for flat panels in general all present challenges to 4K.

    "More consumers value other attributes, including smart TV capability, built-in Wi-Fi and high resolution audio, over 4K picture quality,” Kraus said. "Content availability remains a key inhibitor to 4K adoption. We expect to see lower cost 4K TV technologies presented at CES 2016, along with 4K Blu-ray players and media, as well as OLED and high dynamic range (HDR), to drive new growth in this market."

    Parks also discovered that a full 56% of US broadband households planning to buy a flat panel in the next 12 months consider smart capabilities to be important, versus 39% who value 4K picture quality.
