    Indra completes last phase of Telefónica-GVT integration

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 02 March 2016


    A month and a half ahead of the official GVT integration into Telefónica's Vivo brand in Brazil, Indra is facilitating the last steps in the process.

    indra sedeAccording to Telefónica, GVT will be completely integrated into Vivo from 15 April, a move announced last summer. “For GVT customers, there won't be any changes regarding products or services, it's just a name change,” said the telco.

    But on an operational level, systems, applications and products need to be fully integrated by that time, which is why Indra is carrying out two processes for Telefónica Brazil.

    The first includes testing Vivo applications, and deploying and integrating solutions to improve customer service using control and automation tools. The testing also addresses demand for the development and integration of future Vivo solutions.

    This process intends to increase the productivity of testing, reduce associated costs and enhance quality of deployment.

    Indra will drive integration of all systems, applications and products processes (SAP-based processes) for Vivo and GVT, aiming to simplify systems architecture and adopt a single management platform.

    These contracts see the Spanish-based Indra strengthen its ten-year long technology partnership with Vivo

    Pay-TV powers on for Televisa

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 02 March 2016


    Mexico's Televisa saw pay-TV operations rocket while content productions for free-to-air (FTA) TV dropped during 2015.

    bolsa mexicoThe country's largest TV operator and one of Latin America's leaders in content production reported a 9.9% sales growth during 2015, although revenues fell by 37% during Q4, mostly due to increasing expenses.

    Its direct-to-home (DTH) operation SKY grew by 10% during the year, and 12% during the last quarter, Televisa reported to Mexico's stock market authority. Indeed, the platform added 646,000 subscribers during 2015, nearing 7.3 million subscribers and invoicing the equivalent in local currency of over $1 billion.

    In addition, telecom services, including cable TV, delivered through izzi grew by 36% to nearly $1.6 billion in income. Televisa's cable TV operation showed a 9.6% growth and reached 975,000 households.

    However, Televisa's content division experienced losses during the last quarter of the year, reporting a 3.3% drop in sales and an 11.3% fall in income compared to the same period in 2014. According to the company, this was mainly due to a changing advertising market and the reorganisation of its content business division.

    In fact, aiming to diversify its content distribution and broadcasting options, Televisa launched blim last week, a streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) platform targeting new audiences across Latin America.

    Hispasat rebrands worldwide satellite fleet

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 02 March 2016


    Aiming to provide more precise information through satellite designation, Spain's Hispasat is renaming its worldwide fleet.

    satelite amazonas hispasatAll satellites will use Hispasat as their primary name, except for Latin America's Amazonas, as the operator considers these are already fully established on the market. In addition to using the Hispasat brand in their name, further information will be added in reference to each satellite's orbital position and order of arrival. So, when a satellite changes location, its name will also change.

    The move is in response to the group's growing number of satellites and orbital positions and is designed to maintain coherency.

    Regarding the Amazonas fleet, Hispasat will change Amazonas 4A to Amazonas 4 in light of the restructuring of the Amazonas 4B project into Amazonas 5.

    Once the rebranding is complete, Hispasat's active satellite fleet will be named as follows:

    • Hisapsat 1C: Hispasat 84W-1
    • Hispasat 1D: Hispasat 30W-4
    • Hispasat 1E: Hispasat 30W-5
    • Intelsat 34: Hispasat 55W-2
    • Amazonas 2: Amazonas 2
    • Amazonas 3: Amazonas 3
    • Amazonas 4A: Amazonas 4

    The satellites under construction will also get a new designation - Hispasat AG1 (Hispasat 36W-1) and Hispasat 1F (Hispasat 30W-6) - while Amazonas 5 will remain unchanged.

    Movistar banks 90% of Spain's pay-TV revs

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 02 March 2016


    Telefónica's Movistar+ has invoiced nearly €9 in every €10 generated by the pay-TV industry in Spain, reports the Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (CNMC).

    audiovisual espaaAlthough Movistar's dominant position was known – it owns nearly four million subs in a market of 5.4 million households – income figures from Q3 2015 revealed by the market are impressive.

    During the quarter, audiovisual services generated €924 million, representing a 10.4% growth compared to 2014.

    Out of the whole TV and audiovisual sector, Movistar+ (including Canal+) invoiced 45.4%; but out of the €492.7 million generated within the pay-TV industry, Telefónica's platform invoiced €438.67 million, or 89% of the pay-TV income in Spain.

    Far behind Telefónica, Vodafone-Ono is second by income with €37.9 million, followed by Orange-Jazztel with €16.15 million.

    Regarding free-to-air (FTA) TV, the CNMC numbers confirm what has been previously announced: that Atresmedia and Mediaset call the shots in Spain's advertising market.

    Fibre continues to be the greatest investment driver in the telecom industry, with 30.8 million homes already connected to a fibre network (59.2% more than in 2014). 9.3 million households pay for a quad- or quintuple-play service with pay-TV, and these convergent services are the top performers for the newly deployed networks.

    Rebecca Hawkes | 02 March 2016


    Star Plus is to produce a Hindi version of Prisoners of War (Hatufim), on which Homeland is based, following a deal with Israel’s Keshet International.

    Bollywood director Nikhil Advani has been enlisted for the Indian adaptation of the hit programme by the 21st Century Fox-owned broadcaster, with the series to be produced by Emmay Entertainment.

    Nikhil Advani directed 2013 spy drama D-Day and the romantic drama Kal Ho Na Ho in 2003.

    The show centres on a soldier, held hostage for many years, who returns home and attempts to readjust to a normal life while his family and his government wonder if he’s been turned by the enemy.

    “We are extremely proud to be collaborating with Star Plus on one of our most accomplished properties,” said Keren Shahar, managing director, distribution, Keshet International. “Securing this deal with a highly esteemed partner is indicative of Keshet’s future ambitions in India.”

    Homeland, the US remake of the Gideon Raff created Prisoners of War, debuted in 2011 and is production for its sixth season. In India, the show has aired on Star India’s English entertainment channel Star World.

    Prisoners of War has also been adapted for local audiences by Star J Entertainment in South Korea, WeitMedia in Russia, Medyapim in Turkey and Mexico’s Televisa.

    RFD-TV to premier rural retailer show

    Michelle Clancy | 02 March 2016


    RFD-TV has announced the premiere of a series featuring community-minded retailers in the US.

    The 30-minute show, On the Road with Noble Outfitters, will be filmed on location at stores across America. The stars of the show are independent retailers who have helped shape their community and have provided rural Americans everything needed to manage their homes, ranches, farms and lives.

    “These privately owned shops were the foundation of strength in America for the westward expansion more than 150 years ago, and are just as relevant and important today,” the network said.

    The show was conceived by host Dan Costa, founder and CEO of Noble Outfitters, who was 14 when he started working full-time to provide for his family. He eventually become an accomplished chef as well as produce distributor and tactical clothing retailer.

    The show also will feature local recipes that are favourites within each community, and introduce children who are achieving their dreams at a young age, in the Noble Children of Tomorrow segment.

    RFD-TV continues to expand its presence. The RFD-TV/The Weather Channel Farm & Ranch Forecast launched last January to assist those involved with production agriculture as they make the weather-based decisions vital for the success of their operations.
