    SES Platform Services and The History Channel (Germany) extend partnership

    Multi-year contract extension for signal processing and distributions of the channel A&E on ASTRA 19.2°E for the Sky Deutschland platform
    SES Platform Services responsible for content management and playout of both channels

    Munich, Germany, 21 March 2016. The History Channel (Germany) GmbH & Co. KG and SES Platform Services GmbH – a leading technical media service provider for the innovative distribution of video content – have expanded their partnership covering the distribution of pay-TV channel A&E on the Sky Deutschland platform, extending the contract for encoding, multiplexing, uplink and satellite capacity by several years. Additionally both channels rely on SES Platform Services’ content management and playout services FluidMAM and FluidPLAY.

    FluidMAM will store all of The History Channel Germany’s content from crime, family and lifestyle shows on A&E to historical documentaries for HISTORY. The intuitive web-based content management application allows companies to digitally manage their videos and metadata easily and conveniently and send them to Video on-Demand (VoD) platforms worldwide. Additionally, the FluidPLAY playout solution is used for the playout and enables the use of animated logos and a range of graphics, as well as improved audio processing so that both channels can be offered to viewers in Dolby 5.1.

    Christoph Mühleib, Vice President Sales Europe at SES Platform Services, said: “With The History Channel Germany we have a very agile customer which can use our innovative product range to effectively implement a non-linear or linear multi-platform strategy for its attractive content.”

    Managing Director of A&E Networks Germany Dr. Andreas Weineck added: “SES Platform Services is a reliable and competent partner, ensuring our programmes are delivered to our viewers in the highest possible quality.”

    RTL Nitro and sixx launch on DTT

    German commercial TV channels RTL Nitro and six will in future be available on DTT in the Rhine Main area.

    Local media authority LPR Hessen allocated the space to parent companies RTL and ProSiebenSat.1 at its latest assembly in Kassel.

    Following the retreat of teleshopping broadcaster Channel 21 at the end of 2015, the media authority initiated a tender in January 2016 for Channel 21’s DTT capacity and further capacity reaching a total of 6.4 million inhabitants.

    With RTL Nitro and six which will commence DTT transmissions soon, a total of 13 public and 13 commercial TV channels can be received terrestrially in the Rhine Main area which includes Frankfurt and surroundings.

    Recession pegs back Brazil’s pay-TV sector

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 31 March 2016


    Both official figures and external reports indicate that Brazil’s pay-TV market is continuing to decline, dropping around half a million subs during 2015.

    television digitalFirst highlighted by the country’s telecom authority, Anatel, the consultancy firm Dataxis has now confirmed the fact that Brazil’s pay-TV market is no longer stagnating, but declining.

    According to the Dataxis report, published through NexTV, at the end of Q4 2015, 19.12 million pay-TV households were registered - a fall of 460,130 subscriptions (2.4%) since the beginning of the year. Direct-to-home (DTH) platforms registered the largest drop.

    Dataxis believes that the decline of the sector is the result of both the political and economic crisis affecting the country and the “failure to develop prepaid DTH services, which could function as a strategy to stop customer churn”.

    Despite the decline of DTH, satellite still accounts for 58.4% of total pay-TV homes. América Móvil’s Net retains the market lead with a 37.5% share, according to the report, followed by AT&T’s SKY (28.5%), América Móvil’s Claro TV (14.3%), Oi (6.2%) and Telefónica’s GVT (5.2%) and Vivo (4.1%) operations.

    SOMOS Next targets Latino preschoolers with OTT

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 31 March 2016


    The over-the-top (OTT) Spanish-focused audiovisual company SOMOS Next has launched its children’s brand Pingüinitos, a catalogue of Spanish animation for children aged up to five years.

    pinguinitos somos nextPingüinitos’ content aims to help parents preserve Latino cultural traditions and language through entertaining and educational programming. Although the content is also available for broadcasters interested in this specific demographic, the company is concentrating on direct distribution to the audience through YouTube, its own website and mobile applications, as it expects the Internet consumption habits of Latino children will attract a significant audience.

    "With Pingüinitos we strive to create a fun and friendly place to ensure parents that their children are receiving entertaining but at the same time educational programming in their mother language,” said Luis Guillermo Villanueva, SOMOS Next COO.

    Through Pingüinitos' own website animated content such as Chloe's Closet, Dive Olly Dive, Bali, and Monkey See, Monkey Do are available. Each animated series is designed to develop children's sense of family, friendship and values.

    SOMOS Next is a subsidiary of SOMOSTV which specialises in the commercialization and distribution of paid for Spanish-language video content for online and OTT platforms, either linear or on-demand. A year ago, the company launched FlixLatino, an OTT platform with Latin American movies for the US audience.

    Lack of broadband capacity hinders Cantv’s IPTV

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 31 March 2016


    Although Venezuela’s public telco Cantv announced an IPTV launch almost two years ago, the service is still barely available in the capital, as there is not enough broadband capacity to support Internet access and video transmission.

    cantv banda anchaAccording to complaints from users, Cantv’s broadband doesn’t reach the publicised 10Mbps, of which 8Mbps would be for IPTV and 2Mbps for Internet. Indeed, the public telco doesn’t even allow users to subscribe to any IPTV package outside of the capital area, Gran Caracas, preferring to deliver pay-TV via satellite.

    The company has stated: “in order to access Cantv television, IP users will be directly contacted by the marketing team when detected that the broadband connection meets the requirements”.

    In addition to linear pay-TV, the IP platform enables users to access a video-on-demand (VOD) catalogue, time-shifted viewing and other interactive functions.

    Cantv announced the IPTV launch in May 2014, coinciding with the seventh anniversary of its nationalisation. Since then, the service hasn’t really expanded, while the DTH platform already reaches around 900,000 homes.

    TV watching up 7% but millennials flock to mobile, laptops

    Michelle Clancy | 31 March 2016


    The amount of time spent watching TV in the US was up 7% in the fourth quarter according to comScore’s 2015 Cross-Platform Future in Focus report.

    The research found that on average, 1,004 hours were spent watching live TV, up from 936 hours a year ago. Time spent watching programmes on DVRs up to 15 days after they originally aired rose to 356 hours from 332 hours.

    Among millennials, time spent viewing live TV has been eclipsed by use of desktop computers and phones. Live TV still accounts for 47% of time spent.

    “The availability of more viewing options appealing to a wider array of tastes, in addition to the continued expansion of premium original scripted programming on cable networks, has likely contributed to this effect,” comScore said. “It’s possible that digital share of time spent among 25-54 year-olds might also soon surpass live TV.”

    Earlier this year, comScore, which specialises in measuring Web usage, acquired Rentrak, which uses set-top box data to gauge TV viewing.
