    Olympusat unveils Cinco de Mayo slate

    Joseph O'Halloran | 02 May 2016


    Spanish-language TV network specialist Olympusat is to launch a range of ‘culturally relevant’ programming for the Cinco de Mayo festival.

    Olympusat 2 May 2016The slate is designed to take viewers on a journey, connecting them to their roots and heritage, and will include what Olympusat says are some of the best works in Mexican cinema.

    In addition, the audience will be able to watch films that examine Mexico’s history, people, culture, national identity and scenic landscapes. There will also be drama, romance and comedy programming.

    Inside Olympusat’s family of Spanish-language networks - Ultra Docu, Ultra Cine, Ultra Mex, Ultra Fiesta, Gran Cine and Cine Mexicano - will each have their own special line-up in the afternoon, evening and night time slots, with an array of films, documentaries and music videos.

    “Olympusat is deeply committed to offering a rich diversity of programming that is both entertaining and educational,” said Arturo Chavez, the company’s senior VP of Hispanic Networks and a Mexican-born leading expert on Spanish-language films in the US market. “Olympusat’s leading role in the Spanish-language television industry, as well as our strong bonds with Hispanic audiences, inspires us to honour traditional Mexican culture, and the vast contributions of Mexican Americans to the United States. Today, we are proud to present a thoughtful collection of films that viewers might not find anywhere else, as we do all year round.”

    Leading US pay-TV firms maintain grip

    Joseph O'Halloran | 02 May 2016


    The leading six pay-TV services in the US maintained their overall subscriber numbers, with a net quarterly gain of 33,000 in the first quarter of 2016, says the latest informitv Multiscreen Index.

    comcast streamingThe report shows that four of the six services reported total gains of 438,000 for a grand total of 78.31 million video subscribers. Moreover, these six operators are still reporting more television customers in total than four years ago, said informitv, somewhat contradicting the conventional narrative that Americans are abandoning pay television.

    AT&T U-verse reported the largest loss (382,000) of video subscribers, but this was largely offset by gains for DIRECTV, which AT&T has been promoting since it acquired the company last year. That, said DIRECTV, fell short of making up the difference by 54,000. Between the two services, AT&T still has 25.34 million video customers, making it the market leader in the United States with DIRECTV contributing 20.11 million.

    Comcast added 53,000 video subscribers, its best first quarter result in nine years, taking its total to 22.40 million, while DISH Network lost 23,000 subscribers, ending the quarter with 13.87 million, down by 139,000 year-on-year.

    Time Warner Cable added 21,000 residential video customers, with a total of 10.84 million. Charter Communications, which is planning to acquire the company, gained 10,000, for a total of 4.33 million. In the IPTV sector, Verizon Fios gained 36,000, compared to 90,000 in the same quarter a year previously, taking its total to 5.86 million and AT&T U-verse dropped down to 5.23 million. The service has lost 737,000 subscribers in 12 months as AT&T concentrates on DIRECTV.

    “Considering concerns about cord-cutting, the leading pay-television services in the United States are managing to hang on to their television customers,” commented Dr William Cooper, the editor of the informitv Multiscreen Index.

    EUTELSAT 65 West A now fully functional

    Editor | 02 May 2016


    The EUTELSAT 65 West A satellite, launched on 9 March, is now fully powered up and ready for service across Brazil and Latin America.

    Eutelsat 2 May 2016The satellite is designed to target markets across Latin America and its Ku-band payload is optimised for direct-to-home (DTH) reception. It also features transatlantic C-band coverage for cross-continental video contribution and distribution.

    Eutelsat is anchoring EUTELSAT 65 WEST A in the Brazilian broadcasting market with an antenna seeding programme designed to ensure that pay-TV and cable operators across the country are equipped to receive channels delivered by the new satellite. Already Eutelsat and Space Systems Loral (SSL) have successfully carried out transmissions in Extremely High Frequencies (EHF) using an experimental payload flown into space on the craft.

    In order to strengthen support for clients in the Americas, Eutelsat has opened a network operations centre (NOC) in Santana do Parnaiba in the state of Sao Paulo. The teleport hosting the NOC is also equipped with resources for telemetry, command and ranging (TCR) of EUTELSAT 65 West A and will include radiofrequency and video monitoring tools for service quality assurance of C, Ku and Ka-band services provided through seven Eutelsat satellites providing coverage of the Americas.

    BT Sport to show Europa League, Champions League finals free on YouTube

    Acting in a way that will delight not only its non-subscribers but also European football governing body UEFA, BT Sport is to offer free on YouTube the finals of the European competitions it holds rights to.

    BT 5 May 2016The plan is for the IPTV provider to stream its Freeview BT Sport Showcase channel on YouTube for both the UEFA Europa League final between Liverpool and Sevilla on 18 May and for the UEFA Champions League final between Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid on 28 May. The matches will also be shown live on YouTube at youtube.com/btsport and bt.com. Neither final has ever been made available for free on the video platform before.

    BT has held exclusive rights to screen live Europa League and Champions League games in the UK since August 2015 and says that the move will bring the matches within reach of millions of additional fans who do not yet subscribe to BT Sport. The company claims that BT Sport has proven popular with sports fans since its launch almost three years ago and that over five million homes now subscribe to the channels with the service also available in over 27,000 UK commercial premises.

    However, there have been reports of misgivings at UEFA that its decision to hand live UK rights to a pay-TV provider has been bad for the tournaments. It is said that even though UEFA has admired the production capabilities of the BT offer, it has been particular concerned in the reportedly low viewing figures since the free-to-air aspect of coverage was ended for UK viewers.

    Yet commenting on the development, John Petter, chief executive of BT Consumer, claimed that UEFA was ‘delighted’ with what BT had achieved in its first year as the broadcaster of the Champions League and Europa League. He revealed that the Manchester City Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid had an audience peak of 1.7 million while Liverpool’s 4-3 triumph against Borussia Dortmund — a game that Petter said BT Sport was one of the truly outstanding European matches and which was a privilege to show — attracted a similar audience.

    “We’ve always said we wanted to give top quality sport back to the people and making the UEFA Champions League and Europa League finals free to everyone in the UK does this in a big way,” Petter added. “We’re also bringing BT Sport to a new generation of younger sports fans who view their entertainment online, through social media and on their mobile devices. We plan to make these finals the most social sports broadcast ever, with lots of exciting content in the build-up and on the night across YouTube, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Vine”.

    In a separate move bolstering BT’s football coverage, EE, the UK’s biggest 4G mobile network provider and part of BT Group, will introduce a new offer to bring BT Sport to its customers, initially those on 4GEE pay monthly mobile plans, in time for the start of the next football season in August 2016.

    Stephen Nuttall, YouTube’s senior director in EMEA, expressed similar enthusiasm, divulging that football was YouTube’s biggest sport and that the online video platform was host to over 300 football clubs, 37 leagues and channels from BT Sport to UEFA. “At YouTube, we love football and we’re thrilled to give UK supporters more ways to watch BT Sport’s fantastic live coverage of these two massive games. Fans today expect quality content on every screen and this partnership enables just that,” he remarked.

    Televés takes IPTV to Thailand

    Spain’s Televés has taken its IPTV hospitality solution to the Dhammakaya Temple, Thailand’s largest Buddhist centre.

    televes budistaBased in Bangkok, the temple hosts over 3,000 monks and other religious personnel, and can gather more than 100,000 believers during Sunday’s congregations.

    The Santiago-based broadcasting company has designed and deployed a complete telecom infrastructure for video delivery, including IPTV, different viewing points throughout the temple, and a closed television circuit. It has also installed a content distribution network for the centre’s own TV channel.

    The project has been carried by both the Televés’ team and the company’s official partner in Thailand, Patararungroj.

    “Due to the special significance of the work environment, this project has been a real challenge for Televés regarding how to adapt hospitality solutions to the client’s very specific needs,” said the company.
