    9 Story Media Group has licensed a raft of kids and family content to blim, Televisa’s over-the-top (OTT) subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service.

    “We are making sure that we have great content for all members of the family and having 9 Story’s titles on our platform provides the youngest members of the family with quality entertainment,” said Carlos Sandoval, GM at blim.

    “We are thrilled that our content has found a home with Televisa’s new SVOD service, blim,” said Federico Vargas, director of distribution for 9 Story. “Televisa’s long standing record as a major media powerhouse positions the 9 Story brands for optimal success within the territory.”

This alliance builds a combined and global intellectual property (IP) offering for the discovery and personalisation of digital entertainment.

    16% of Spanish pay-TV households become first-time subscribers in 2015

    Editor | 02 March 2016


    Even though the country has a high number of cord-shavers, cord-cutters and cord-nevers, Spain is enjoying a ramp up of pay-TV subscribers, according to research firm Parks Associates.

    RTVN 2 Mar ParksIndeed the Connected Consumer in Europe survey shows that 16% of pay-TV households in Spain actually subscribed to the services for the first time during 2015. It also found that Spanish consumers are more likely than consumers in other Western European markets either to have never had pay-TV or to have cancelled pay-TV in favour of online video sources.

    The data also reveals that Spain actually exceeds the US in percentage of cord-cutters and broadband households that watch online video, but in the other surveyed countries — that is the UK, France, and Germany — the incidence of cord-cutting was far lower than in the US. The percentage of consumers in those countries cancelling pay-TV services and instead using online video is half the rate seen in the US.

    "First-time adoption of pay-TV is up among Spanish broadband households as is the penetration of pay TV overall," said Brett Sappington, director, research, Parks Associates and author of the report. "The Spanish pay-TV market in general has a very active, cost-conscious base of subscribers, with higher-than-average rates of downgrades and upgrades and a substantial population of cord-nevers."

    InTheBOX.TV inks partnership with VIPnet Croatia

    Editor | 02 March 2016


    Multi-genre content provider TV InTheBOX.TV is making its debut in the Croatian pay-TV market by launching three channels on Telekom Austria Group subsidiary VIPnet.

    RTVN 2 March 2016 In the box Launched in 2015, inTheBOX.TV targets pay-TV in the CEE region with a portfolio of channels carrying content relevant to broad range of target groups, from women, to men, younger, mid-age, urban, and more. Each channel is divided into thematic components where each day of week/day part is dedicated to a selected theme while weekends are reserved for selected content.

    InTheBOX.TV first launched its channels in July 2015. SBB Serbia, Telemach Slovenia, Telekom Slovenia, Telemach BiH, ELTA-Kabel and numerous smaller operators in Slovenia and BiH already distribute the channels.

    The three new channels for VIPnet — Dr.Fit, Woman and Planet Earth — fit into this model. Dr.Fit aims to show healthy lifestyle content from physical and mental health to nutrition habits while Woman is, as it suggests, a lifestyle channel made by women for women. Planet Earth is a docu-channel combining history, art, science, societies, real life adventures, nature and wildlife, mysteries, disasters, true travel and more.

    “We are excited to launch our channels on VIPnet, and hence bring our content to Croatian viewers for the first time,” said InTheBOX.TV spokesperson Magdalena Malinova. “[The market for] pay-TV channels is highly fragmented and fairly saturated so it is our mission to bring fresh and unique content to our viewers and innovative business model to our partners-operators. We are delighted that Telekom Austria Group has recognised InTheBOX.TV as a valuable partner and we’re looking forward to develop our businesses together.”

    Review finds BBC Trust model ‘flawed’ and recommends overhaul of governance

    Editor | 02 March 2016


    More bad news for the ever under pressure BBC as an independent review commissioned by the UK Government has concluded that its current governance model should be replaced.

    Moreover, the review, which is also part of the government’s latest evaluation of the BBC’s Royal Charter, recommends that the corporation should have a unitary board made up with a majority of non-executive directors, and that regulatory oversight of the BBC should be given wholly to the national regulator Ofcom. The latter, along with the BBC Executive and the BBC Trust, is one of three groups that make up the system of governance and regulation of the BBC.

    This governance arrangement — especially that regarding the BBC Trust, the primary role of which is to guarantee best value for money for BBC licence fee payers — was condemned as being flawed, said Sir David Clementi, who led the review.

    “Following consultation with a wide range of interested parties, and a detailed assessment of the options, I have concluded that there should be a fundamental reform of the system of governance and regulation for the BBC,” Clementi remarked. “The BBC Trust model is flawed. It conflates governance and regulatory functions within the Trust. The BBC should have a unitary board charged with responsibility for meeting the obligations placed on it under the Royal Charter and Agreement, and responsibility for the interests of licence fee payers.

    The Clementi report also recommends that the primary responsibility for the interests of the licence fee payers should lie with the BBC board and that Ofcom should issue the BBC an ‘operating framework’, consistent with the revised Royal Charter and Agreement, which would set out the obligations placed on the BBC. This should include ‘operating licences’ which would set out the BBC's broadcasting content and distribution obligations.

    Sky opens new unit to make major push into virtual reality

    Editor| 18 March 2016


    Having made an initial foray into virtual reality (VR) in news coverage, Sky is now launching an aggressive push into the world of VR with the sports it owns rights to show.


    SKy VR 16 March 2016The pay-TV giant is promising that its new commitment to VR content will bring its expertise in storytelling to the creation of immersive experiences that will put the viewer right at the heart of the action.

    To step up the production of VR content across all its markets, Sky has created Sky VR Studio, a dedicated in-house VR production unit. As well as creating sports content, the new unit’s remit will also encompass films, news and entertainment.

    The new venture is the culmination of work in VR that began in 2013 when the company invested in Jaunt, a US-based company pioneering cinematic virtual reality.

    Sky VR Studio will be charged with driving the creation of cinematic, fully immersive VR content, producing more than 20 individual films, across a unique range of Sky content. In the coming months, Sky VR Studio will create brand new, exclusive VR content such as a perspective on heavyweight boxing; following Team Sky as it sets its sights on retaining their Tour de France crown; exclusive VR content across a range of news, arts and entertainment programming.

    “The Sky VR Studio allows us to add a new dimension to storytelling, taking viewers to extraordinary places and offering a unique perspective on a whole host of events,” commented Gary Davey, Sky’s MD of content. “The development of VR technology is moving at an incredible pace and excitement is building about its potential. Our expertise across a wide range of video content, from original drama to live sport, gives us a unique ability to bring VR to life for customers.”

    The first pieces of fully immersive VR content to be produced by the unit will be released on 18 March in the form of two so-called ‘unprecedented’ films shot during Formula One testing in Barcelona. The film is attributed with being able to transport viewers to the pit lane, into the team garages, and out onto the track.

    The two F1 VR experiences, produced in conjunction with Formula One Management and Williams Martini Racing, will be made available via the Facebook 360 Video platform. The full VR experience will also be available on the Oculus platform, and viewable on the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Rift headsets. Sky will look to distribute content through a dedicated Sky VR app later in 2016.

    European programmatic video advertising to be worth 2BN by 2020

    Joseph O'Halloran | 18 March 2016


    IHS research commissioned by video inventory management platform provider SpotX has revealed a 38.7% year-on-year rise in programmatic online video advertising revenues across Europe.



    Spot X 18 March 2016The data shows that the industry has grown almost twenty-fold from €22 million in 2012 to €375 million by the end of 2015. At this current growth rate it is set to become a €2 billion industry in 2020, by which SpotX predicts time more than half of all online video advertising revenue in Europe will be generated programmatically.

    Looking at the survey data regionally, SpotX found that the big five markets were responsible for €286 million of programmatic online video advertising revenue generated in 2015, which is expected to climb to €1.512 billion by 2020. The Benelux region is forecast to triple from €62 million in 2015 to €198 million in 2020, whilst Nordics saw €21 million programmatic online video advertising revenue in 2015, predicted to reach €138m in 2020.

    “The data shows the dramatic rise of video advertising across Europe, which has been reflected in our own growth across Europe with rising revenues every year,” commented CEO Mike Shehan. “We introduced video real time bidding in 2010, and now have established offices in London, Hamburg and Amsterdam contributing to the global growth of SpotX. The UK, France and the Netherlands are leading the adoption of programmatic online video in Europe, followed by a sizeable and important market in Germany, as well as emerging markets with high potential including the Nordics, Spain, Italy, Switzerland and Austria.”
