    TBC taps NAGRA to protect new digital platform


    Multi-system cable operator Taiwan Broadband Communications (TBC), has turned to content protection and multiscreen TV protection firm NAGRA to secure its new digital TV services.

    NAGRA 8 Sep 2016NAGRA has been a partner in TBC’s ongoing digitisation efforts providing the operator with both its OpenTV 5 set-top box software and system integration services required to support a rapid transition to an all-digital platform and the fulfilment of regulatory requirements.

    OpenTV 5 is part of NAGRA’s MediaLive Suite, a set of digital TV solutions designed to provide secure, engaging and intuitive user experiences via a back-end that supports an all-screen connected home scenario.

    TBC has been an OpenTV 5 customer since April 2015 and has already shipped close to one million set-top boxes powered by the 5 operating system, marking the largest deployment of OpenTV 5 in Asia. The new deployment will enable TBC to roll out a hybrid platform combining broadcast and Internet TV services.

    “We are very pleased with our partnership with NAGRA and its ability to adapt, integrate and launch the OpenTV 5 operating system on our platform,” said TBC chief executive officer Jimmy Chen. “We look forward to continued growth and maximising customer satisfaction by delivering a new generation of high quality services to our subscribers.”

    Getty Images snaps up rights to run ITN video archive sales


    The UK’s Independent Television News (ITN) has appointed Getty Images as exclusive global distributor of its ITN Source video archive.

    ITN is a made up of two business divisions - Broadcast News and ITN Productions - and provides daily TV news programmes for ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. ITN Source is part of Digital Content Services within ITN Productions and the agreement with Getty, beginning from the middle of 2017, will apply to the entirety of ITN’s digitised video archive that dates back to 1955.

    Aiming to reassure customers, ITN Source said that it remains open for business as usual and advised that during this transition period, customers could continue to licence archive clips from partner archives, including ITV Studios, Fox News, Fox Movietone, ANI, HUTC, Images of War and UTV, but from January 2017, it would no longer be representing the Reuters archive.

    ITN will retain ownership of its archive and a spokewoman told Rapid TV News that move was a strategic decision as ITN company moves towards its 2020 Vision objectives “to become a world-class production company.” However, the spokeswoman confirmed that as a result of the new partnership, 20 jobs at ITN Source were now at the risk of redundancy.

    The spokeswoman added: “The outlook for ITN’s future remains both ambitious and optimistic, and given the continued growth projections, we fully anticipate that by 2018 we will be back to our current levels of staff numbers as new jobs are created in parts of the business which are expanding rapidly.”

    UFC 205 is gearing up for its Madison Square Garden debut in New York City on 12 November, with HD and 4K digital access.

    ufc 205 nyc 10 nov 2016


    NeuLion powers UFC.TV, and will be delivering the UFC 205 digital ticket, offering fans live and on-demand pay-per-view access for the mixed martial arts (MMA) event. Fans can buy a digital pay-per-view ticket for $59.99.

    For Sony Ultra HD TV buyers, the event will be shown in 4K live streaming, for models in all countries except China.

    “With Super Bowl-like ticket prices, the anticipation for UFC 205 in New York is fantastic,” said NeuLion president and CEO, Roy Reichbach. “We are excited to be a part of such a historic event and give fans outside the arena the ability to watch the action live in stunning 4K quality. This event is another milestone for us as we continue to build momentum delivering the best fan experience and driving 4K content availability worldwide.”

    The 4K market continues to grow as more and more people buy 4K TV sets. IHS predicts penetration of US households who will own at least one 4K TV set will rise quickly, hitting 34% by 2019, representing about 34 million homes. With this, the availability of 4K content will also continue to rise and live sports proves to be the most compelling and engaging in the higher quality.

    YouTube launches Daydream VR app


    YouTube has launched a standalone virtual reality (VR) app which will be available on Daydream, Google’s new virtual reality platform that’s cooked into the latest version of Android.

    youtube vr app 10 Nov 2016VR videos can be viewed using Daydream-compatible smartphones — including Google’s newly-launched Pixel — which slot into the Daydream View headset. The Daydream View, priced at $79, is a follow-up to Google’s first-ever VR headset, Cardboard.

    “We want to continue to provide you with new ways to engage with the world and with your community, and we believe virtual reality will play an important role in the future of storytelling,” said product manager Erin Teague and director of creators Jamie Byrne, in a blog.


    “More than just an amazing new technology, VR allows us to make deep, human connections with people, places and stories. That’s why we’re committed to giving creators the space and resources they need to learn about, experiment with, and create virtual reality video. In fact, we’ve already started working with some awesome creators, recording artists, and partners who are producing VR videos across a wide variety of genres and interest areas on YouTube.”

    The content will include 360° videos for a VR viewing experience, from producers like beauty vlogger Meredith Foster, Tastemade’s VR cooking videos and breaking news in VR from HuffPost RYOT.

    “We’ve also been working to allow you to have experiences or visit places you might not be able to (or might not dare to!) in real life,” said Teague and Byrne. “Go swimming with sharks thanks to Curiscope, get a first-hand look at a living, breathing dinosaur at the Natural History Museum in London, travel to Belize with StyleHaul, hike a trail a thousand miles away with Daniel and Kelli at Fitness Blender, or watch Tritonal in concert no matter where you are.”

    BBC’s The Turning Forest VR launches for Google


    BBC Research & Development’s (R&D) experimental The Turning Forest virtual reality (VR) fairy tale launches next week for Daydream, Google’s mobile VR offering.

    bbc turning forest 10 nov 2016Produced by BBC R&D in collaboration with virtual reality production studio VRTOV, The Turning Forest is available free to all audiences.

    In a magical forest, a young child stares into the eyes of a fantastical creature. Together, the two embark on a journey that transports audiences into an entrancing realm of folkish dimension and boundless imagination.

    The Turning Forest was created as part of the BBC’s ongoing work exploring emerging technology and new storytelling mediums for future audiences.

    “The Turning Forest is unique in that it’s been designed from the sound up, using state-of-the-art audio to help transport people to a magical world,” said Zillah Watson, executive producer, BBC R&D. “It takes advantage of decades of research and experience from our own R&D team, partners and universities to create a beautiful soundscape that we hope people will love. We’re delighted to bring this latest experiment to even more audiences and we can’t wait to hear what they think.”

    Having debuted at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, The Turning Forest was originally created for the Oculus Rift. It has now been enhanced to further improve the spatial sound design, introduce new controller interactions and include new surprises to discover in the magical forest. The sound was adapted from an original soundtrack commissioned for S3A: Future Spatial Audio for an Immersive Listener Experience at Home, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

    US election is largest event ever delivered for Akamai


    The 2016 US presidential election has become the largest news event ever delivered by Akamai Technologies.

    election day nbc 10 nov 2016Live video traffic specific to the election peaked at 7.5Tbps on the Akamai Platform shortly before midnight Eastern Time on Election Day.

    To put that into historical perspective, Election Day traffic on Akamai in 2004 peaked at a relatively modest 21Gbps. The 2009 Obama inauguration reached 1.1Tbps, and the Royal Wedding in 2011 hit 1.3Tbps. More recently, the first 2016 Presidential debate peaked at 4.4Tbps in September.

    “In what has already been a record-setting year for live streaming with the European soccer finals, Rio and the recent Presidential debates, Akamai has again helped our customers deliver unprecedented levels of online video with last night’s election coverage,” said Bill Wheaton, EVP and GM of media at Akamai. “Not only are more people watching online in general, they’re watching at higher quality, which contributes to the increasingly higher peaks in traffic that we’re observing.”

    Yesterday also marked the inauguration of Akamai’s Broadcast Operations Control Center (BOCC) in a Presidential election. Numerous customers took advantage of the dedicated facility, technical staff and services for real-time support and operational insight, the company said.

    Discovery signs up for Kwesé TV distribution


    Four Discovery channels are destined for Econet Media’s Kwesé TV after a content deal was sealed between the US broadcaster and nascent African pay-TV platform.

    Discovery IDX How Not to Kill Your HusbandThe non-fiction channels – mystery and suspense channel IDX, Discovery Science, Animal Planet and the new turbo-charged entertainment channel DTX – will be available when Kwesé TV launches.

    “Our purpose is to give our audiences access to the best programming from all over the world,” said Joseph Hundah, CEO, Econet Media. “Discovery’s thought-provoking and compelling content is globally recognised for its quality and entertainment value. These channels are a natural fit for Kwesé, adding a unique dimension to our programming which we believe will appeal to our different audiences across Africa.”

    “Joining forces with Kwesé represents our commitment to expand our African consumer fan-base and bring our content to more audiences, across more screens than ever before,” said Dilek Doyran, vice president of commercial development, Discovery Networks CEEMEA.

    “IDX is one of our most globally successful channels, with sticky content that keeps its female audiences gripped to their seats as the mystery unfolds; while DTX, our newest channel brand for younger males, offers lovers of turbo programming a dedicated home to quench their first for everything fast and loud. With Animal Planet and Discovery Science included, this is the perfect channel line-up for the whole family to enjoy,” he added.

    The content deal will bring African audiences Discovery Science programming such as Stephen Hawking’s Universe, Alien Encounters and Storm Rider next year, while Animal Planet will have new wildlife shows in 2017 such as Deadliest South Africa and Meet the Penguins, as well as the globally popular series Treehouse Masters.

    IDX, meanwhile, carries real-life stories of passion and revenge, with content next year including People Magazine Investigates, How (Not) to Kill Your Husband (pictured) and Married with Secrets.

    DTX will debut in Africa on Kwesé with content focused on speed, adrenaline and extreme sports including a dedicated Eurosport block on Sundays. The channel’s programming early next year includes How it’s Made: Dream Cars, Kindig Customs and Fantomworks.

    DTX will be exclusive to Kwesé across Africa, alongside Animal Planet, which will be exclusive in select markets including Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, Tanzania (including Zanzibar) and Uganda.

    UK, US young millennials turn back on sport


    fox sports nflSport has traditionally been pay-TV’s cash cow and best defence against cord-cutting but alarmingly for the providers Ampere Analysis research suggests that interest in sport among young millennials is on the decline.


    The study of 32,000 consumers in Europe and the US suggests demographic and cultural shifts are changing the way younger audiences view sport. Moreover, suggested Ampere, with an ageing fan base, broadcasters must ‘get their eyes back on the ball’ if they are to retain and indeed grow a highly desirable audience.

    The survey found that a tenth of the sample chose sport as their favourite genre, but of these, just 11% were aged 18-24, compared with 13.5% of the surveyed population. Ampere calculated this to be 17% lower than would be expected and concluded that sports fans and viewers are under-indexing among millennials. By marked contrast, nearly half (46%) of those identifying sports as their favourite genre in Ampere’s research were aged over 45. This compared with 43% of the surveyed population.

    Looking as to what millennials really liked, the survey found that they are much more likely to identify with other content forms. They were 21% more likely than average to agree they ‘love movies’ and half more likely to indicate that they ‘love TV series.’

    Divining reasons for what could be an alarming shift in tastes, and most likely income, Richard Broughton, director at Ampere Analysis said: “The shift in perception of sport among younger consumers should ring alarm bells for traditional media companies reliant on high value - and increasingly high cost - sports rights. Pay-TV operators thinking of cutting back spend on TV and movie content to protect budget for sports rights may want to think again.

    Younger consumers are turning off sport in favour of scripted and social video content including comedy, sci-fi, romance and action & adventure. Clearly, a ‘one-size fits all’ content strategy will not last as a pan-generational plan.”

    In a call to action, Ampere advised broadcasters and sports bodies to encourage millennials back to sport as they would be the fans, viewers and subscribers of tomorrow. “[Providers] will be all too aware that failure to engage younger consumers in sport means being trapped in an unsustainable scenario of escalating rights costs against a backdrop of a declining or stagnating audience base,” Broughton concluded. “Building fan bases internationally has been a core part of league growth strategies to date – but securing domestic audiences will be crucial to future security.”
