    Netflix taps Bambú’s success-formula for first production in Spain

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 31 March 2016


    Subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) leader Netflix isn’t taking risks with its first production in Spain, and will repeat a formula that has proven successful for Bambú Producciones.

    netflixTo be filmed in Madrid this year, Netflix’s drama series will premiere worldwide on the platform during 2017. The production will be carried out by Bambú Producciones, directed by Ramón Campos and Teresa Fernández Valdés, behind two of Spain’s latest international drama successes: Gran Hotel (which recently was adapted by Televisa into El Hotel de los Secretos and aired in Univision) and Velvet.

    The 16x50’series will develop a historical drama, as both Gran Hotel and Velvet did. It will tell the story of four women working as telephone operators in Madrid in 1920, at the very beginning of the telecom revolution.

    “We are fans of Netflix’s originals and therefore we are very proud of being part of this project,” said Ramón Campos. “Getting to work with a talented team as Netflix’s is a great opportunity,” added Teresa Fernández Valdés.

    “Gran Hotel and Velvet are epic romances that have found success around the globe. We are sure our subscribers will love this new drama,” pointed out Erik Barmack, international VP for Netflix’s Originals

    Video consumption drives Saudi mobile broadband use

    Rebecca Hawkes | 01 April 2016


    Saudi Arabia’s smartphone users now consume 62% of their video intake on phones or tablets, a higher average than counterparts in the UAE, USA, UK and Germany, according to Ericsson.

    Additionally, 43% of smartphone users in the 16–29 age group watch on-demand video weekly in Saudi Arabia. Mobile broadband usage behavior in Saudi Arabia is driven by high smartphone ownership, access to 4G networks and strong interest in new services, the Ericsson Consumerlab ‘Evolving Expectations’ study has found.

    Of the 2000 smartphone users sampled in the kingdom, 66% said they use the Internet constantly throughout the day – which is on a par with western Internet use. Another 54% claim that the Internet is their main source of news and entertainment, surpassing both the UK and the USA.

    ALi Ed“The fact is that consumers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are increasingly mobile, video driven, to the extent that their connectivity and mobility is surpassing many other countries, which is truly exciting,” said Ali Eid, head of Ericsson, Saudi Arabia.

    “One of the key points highlighted by this report is that consumer expectations from mobile services are increasingly evolving over time. In order to meet the expectations, there is a challenge for operators to improve service quality with reliable and faster mobile broadband and better customer support.”

    The report found that across locations, 66% of smartphone users feel Wi-Fi offers a desirable performance for watching videos, compared to 23% who feel the same about mobile networks.

    In spite of having a high-quality video streaming experience, only 57% of consumers are satisfied with online video streaming, compared to the 88% who are satisfied with instant messaging and chat services.

    Among the KSA’s smartphone users, there is a 10% growth in tablet ownership and a 17% growth in the usage of 4G connections in the last two years, Ericsson found.
