    US consumers spend over $6 on OTT

    Consumers in hte US spend over $6 per month on Netflix, Hulu Plus, and other subscription OTT video, according to Parks Associates.

    The average monthly spending on internet-based SVOD services among US broadband households increased from $3.71 per month in 2012 to $6.19 per month in 2015, according to the research form’s new report Content Strategies: Survival in the New Video World.

    “Multiple content players have held onto traditional content windowing strategies for years, but OTT technologies and emerging business models have finally forced these companies to experiment with new windowing strategies,” said Glenn Hower, research analyst, Parks Associates.

    “New models for movies include day-and-date availability, as with the movie Beasts of No Nation, where it was released for streaming the same day as in the theater. For streaming TV shows like Jessica Jones or Transparent, viewers can watch full seasons all at once, satisfying binge-happy viewers. Consumers have quickly adopted these new habits as part of their OTT monthly subscriptions.”

    A typical price point for a subscription service is $7-$10, but several niche services are available for under $5, according to Hower. U. broadband households on average spend less than $1 per month buying and less than $1 per month renting digital video, indicating they purchase less than one digital video a year and rent between one and four videos per year.

    Average-Monthly-Spending-on-Video

    “The subscription model clearly dominates in the US, which could create a disconnect in value propositions between consumers and content providers, who might seek out revenues from more lucrative transactional services over low-margin SVOD services,” Hower said.

    “Currently they are exploiting multiple digital distribution outlets to monetize current and library TV content, including authenticated catch-up players, third-party aggregators, and direct-to-consumer subscription services. There are also bidding wars for premium library TV content, with Netflix paying a reported $118 million for Friends and Hulu paying a reported $160 million for Seinfeld.”

    Hilversum to pay Ziggo €4m

    The Dutch city of Hilversum will pay Ziggo €4 million in damages following a dispute over the subscription fee for basic cable TV.

    The damages payment is the result of a dispute between the city and UPC (now Ziggo) over the amount the operator could charge for its service.

    Hilversum tried to keep the monthly fee as low as possible, but an Amsterdam court ruled in 2014 that the city could not hold back a tariff increase in Hilversum that UPC had been trying to push through since 2004.

    The Amsterdam court ruling followed an opinion from the EU Court in 2013 that the city had no authority to intervene in pricing, only an independent regulator could do so.

    Ziggo has pledged to invest the amount it receives in local projects in care, education and media and deploying a public Wi-Fi network.

    The operator will now start to charge its customers in Hilversum the same amount as in the rest of the country.

    Strong smart TV growth in Japan, US and Europe

    By 2019, more than 50% of TV households in Japan, the US, the UK, France and Germany will have smart TVs, according to IHS.

    According to the latest information from the IHS TV Sets Intelligence Service, smart TV household penetration in Japan has already reached 50% and will rise to 63% in 2019, followed by the US at 57%. Among Western European countries, Germany and the United Kingdom are expected to reach 53% penetration for smart TVs in 2019, followed closely by France at 50%.

    “Increasing demand for 4K resolution, the debut of high dynamic range (HDR) for both hardware and content, and access to streaming content that supports these features will accelerate smart TV demand globally,” said Hisakazu Torii, senior director of Consumer Device Research for IHS Technology.

    “Growing availability of 4K content from online video providers will also support this trend, as will the introduction of ultra-high-definition Blu-ray in 2016.”

    Although China is considered to be an emerging TV market, smart TV household penetration is expected to reach 46% by 2019, which is higher than other emerging regions. Smart TV is an essential feature on TVs sold in China, because many Chinese consumers seek out online content services.

    “With content providers and smart-device manufacturers, such as Alibaba, LeTV, Xiaomi, now entering the TV set market, Chinese consumers have more smart TV choices than ever before,” Torii said. “Increased sales of 4K TVs will accelerate these trends in the Chinese market.”

    Unlike the high adoption expected in most developed countries and China, smart TV household penetration in other emerging countries will remain low, due to a lack of online video content and insufficient infrastructure to deliver the required broadband Internet content to the home. For those reasons, smart TV household penetration in Brazil and Russia will only reach 36% in 2019 and just 3% in India.

    BT revamps mobile apps

    BT has released an updated version of its TV app for Apple and Android devices.

    It includes a dedicated kids on demand and catch up library, an additional seven channels, and a collection of premium content.

    Previously known as BT TV Everywhere, the BT TV app includes a new, dedicated kids section with streamed on-demand and catch-up shows such as SpongeBob SquarePants on Nickelodeon, Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom from Entertainment One and Doc McStuffins from Disney Junior.

    Six of the newly added channels are from UKTV Alibi, Eden, GOLD, Good Food, Home and Watch); the recently rebranded Sony Channel is the 7th.

    Antonia Barton, general manager, BT TV product, said: “The new BT TV app is much better all round – it is much easier to use and gives you great TV shows to enjoy when you’re out and about. The new kids’ section is great for children, as they can find their favourite shows within a dedicated section of the app. Plus there’s so much more content, whether you’re looking for something like Britain’s Next Top Model from Lifetime on Subscription Catch Up or you want to watch a classic comedy on UKTV’s GOLD channel.”

    BT TV customers will also be able to search the app for both live streamed and catch-up content from their TV channels and it also continues to let them link directly to their YouView+ set top box to set recordings when they are out and about.

    The BT TV app is available now for iOS and Android and customers can register up to two separate devices to their BT account.

    The health, lifestyle and homeshopping network is launching onto the Sky platform. It’s being played out from Babcock’s central London facility with ingest and the addition of dynamic graphics, as well as multiplexing, uplinking, satellite capacity and archive storage.

    “The Wellbeing Network is a multi-platform proposition with a growing loyal customer base and an established range of products. Taking their brand to TV enables them to really bring their brand to life through engaging customised content on a channel built around their core message of healthy living. This actively enhances Wellbeing’s brand while accessing fresh audiences through a valuable new revenue stream,” said Babcock’s Tom Eyton-Jones.

    Wellbeing was established by Zonevision founder Chris Wronski. He says it was important for the channel, which has an established online presence, to maintain its brand image. “Babcock came highly recommended and has provided us with invaluable support. Their team has liaised with Sky on our behalf, and visited us several times to explain all our technical options so that we could confidently make the right decisions”.

    Babcock’s media services division is based in Vauxhall, South London.

    Russia considers new access rules

    Russia’s President Putin has instructed a number of ministries and agencies, along with the Media and Communication Union (MKS), to submit proposals on how to ensure telecom operators have non-discriminatory access to multi-occupation homes.

    Vedomosti reports that they have been given a deadline of July 1 to address a problem that existed for a number of years.

    It adds that operators regularly complain about problems related to access to homes, with one (ER Telecom) paying 0.5% of its revenues for such access in 2011, only to see that figure rise to almost 3% three years later.

    Akado Telecom meanwhile says it has seen the fees it is charged increase by 800% and VimpelCom complains about the obstruction caused by management companies, chiefly the unjustified increase in fees.
