    DVB acts to prevent ‘man-in-the-middle’ attacks

    The DVB is updating the way it deals with interactive applications in a bid to prevent so-called ‘man-in-the-middle’ attacks through smart TVs.
    It follows a demonstration by a security researcher who showed it was possible for attackers to modify the broadcast signal and gain access to smart TVs. They could then gain access to TV features such as its camera, microphone, and potentially other devices connected to the set. The new version will provide additional security to interactive solutions like the HbbTV specification, which relies heavily on TS 102 809.
    Commenting on the action by the DVB Steering Board, DVB Chairman, Peter MacAvock said: “Although ‘Man-in-the-Middle’ attacks have been demonstrated, there is little real-world evidence of such attacks. Even so DVB acknowledges the potential risks, and has moved to address these with a comprehensive and appropriate specification to re-assure consumers and industry alike. ”
    The updated specification enables broadcasters to add authentication information to the signalling of their interactive services. In essence, the television receiver learns the legitimate transmission on each channel and will then identify and reject any subsequent tampering. This provides an extra layer of defence for TV sets and their owners in addition to manufacturers’ activities to improve their products security.

    SRG Switzerland remains on Hotbird

    Swiss public broadcaster SRG SSR will continue to transmit its TV and radio channels for DTH satellite households via Hotbird (13° East).
    SRG has confirmed its long-term commitment to the Hotbird neighbourhood with the multi-year renewal of one transponder that complements a second transponder already booked on a long-term basis, according to satellite operator Eutelsat.
    SRG SSR occupies the two Hotbird transponders to broadcast seven TV channels in HD quality to Swiss homes beyond range of quality terrestrial reception and for Swiss citizens living abroad: SRF 1, SRF zwei, SRF info, RSI LA 1, RSI LA 2, RTS Un and RTS Deux.
    The capacity is also used for Hbb TV services and 26 SRG radio stations.
    With the exception of SRF info, all TV channels are encrypted for copyright reasons; smartcards are only issued to Swiss citizens. The radio stations are unencrypted.
    The TV channels are available solely in HD quality on Hotbird. The parallel SD transmissions were terminated in February 2016.

    Mixed TV picture for Magyar Telekom

    Magyar Telekom disconnected 22,000 long-standing, non-paying TV customers in Q4 2016 in its home market Hungary as part of a portfolio cleaning exercise.
    This, along with similar reductions for fixed-line (16,000) and fixed broadband (19,000) customers, impacted negatively on its fixed-line revenues, which declined by 6.4% year-on-year in the fourth quarter.
    Magyar Telekom nevertheless ended Q4 with 969,013 TV customers, or 0.8% more than a year earlier.
    On the other hand, TV ARPU fell by 1.4% to HUF3,325 (€10.8).
    Meanwhile, in Macedonia Magyar Telekom’s subsidiary saw its TV subscriber total increase by 4.1% year-on-year to 107,672.
    In its latest results the telco notes that its TV revenues increased by 5.2% year-on-year to HUF11.1 billion in Q4, mainly driven by growth in the IPTV base both in Hungary and Macedonia.
    IPTV subscribers generated as much as 63% of the group’s TV revenues in the quarter.
    Magyar Telekom as a whole had total revenues of HUF158,828 million in Q4 (-13.2%) and EBITDA of HUF43,831 million (+0.2%). Its profit amounted to HUF20,251 million (+400.1%).

    NetCologne in carriage fee dispute

    German cable operator NetCologne must not distribute some commercial channels for a fee while it still carries other commercial channels without a fee.
    This decision was made by the German media authorities’ licensing and supervision commission ZAK.
    As part of the introduction of a new business model, NetCologne had been gradually converting the carriage contracts it held with broadcasters to new contracts since 2015.
    This led to the situation that some channels already had to pay for their distribution while others didn’t. As a consequence, several complaints – from Sport1 and others – were submitted at LfM, the local media authority responsible for NetCologne.

    According to the German broadcast law, it is not permitted to treat equal broadcasters unequally without a justified reason. The fact that the platform operator doesn’t succeed in pushing through the new model among all broadcasters at the same time due to the market position of individual channels or channel groups, does not constitute a suitable justification, according to ZAK.
    The regulators underline that platform operators are allowed to introduce new contracts and thereby new business models. But there must not be a transition period in which some broadcasters already have to pay for carriage of their channels through the platform operator while others don’t have to pay.

    “Such a practice of contract conversion contradicts the interdiction of discrimination,” said ZAK chairman Siegfried Schneider. “Equal broadcasters have to be treated equally. NetCologne is therefore requested to actively reconstitute equal treatment.” Otherwise there would be the danger of the unequal treatment – in particular of smaller commercial broadcasters – to be further cemented.
    ZAK’s objection as well as the corresponding request for equal treatment of broadcasters have been submitted to NetCologne by LfM.
    NetCologne declined to issue a statement on the allegations. “We ask for your understanding that we don’t want to comment on an ongoing case,” a spokesperson told Broadband TV News.

    Oseevsky to head up Rostelecom

    Russia’s Rostelecom is set to appoint Mikhail Oseevsky as its new president.

    According to Vedomosti, his candidacy for the post has been agreed and the government is preparing the relevant directive.

    This is due to the fact that such a directive is required as the government has a majority of seats – six out of 11 – on the telco’s board. Oseevsky is a politician and member of the United Russia party
    Meanwhile, Sergey Kalugin, who has held the position since March 2013, has been offered the post of deputy minister of communications.

    The Czech Republic’s Nova Group has rebranded its licensing company CET 21 as TV Nova.

    Quoting the group’s spokesperson Jana Ondrejechová, Rozhlas.cz reports that this has been done in order to align its key brands under the name Nova.

    It adds that the action was approved by the company at its last meeting and the Council for Radio and TV Broadcasting (RRTV) earlier this week.

    Nova is owned by CME and operates not only the flagship channel TV Nova but also thematic services Nova Cinema, Nova Action (formerly Fanda), Nova Gold (formerly Telka), Nova 2 (formerly Smichov), Nova International (aimed at viewers in Slovakia), Nova Sport 1, Nova Sport 2 and the SVOD service Voyo.

    TVR Romania completes EBU review

    Romania’s TVR has become the latest broadcaster to complete the EBU’s peer-to-peer review.
    According to the EBU, the review is designed to assess a broadcaster’s performance against the six core public service values: universality, independence, excellence, diversity, accountability and innovation. Brian Dalton from RTE in Ireland and Andreas Lattmann from SSR SRG in Switzerland joined EBU staff Boris Bergant, Richard Burnley, Jean Philip De Tender and Nathalie Labourdette to conduct the review of TVR’s performance.

    The review concluded that TVR needed to define a clear vision and better understanding of its role as a public service media organization in order to differentiate itself from the commercial alternatives. This vision would form the basis of a new global content and branding strategy and a renewed relationship with Romanian society.

    The report says: “Public service media organizations (PSM) contribute to building national cohesion out of diversity, providing balanced and factual news and fostering transparency and accountability. As such, they contribute to the democratic culture and the plurality of the national identity. PSM provide a public space to showcase the richness of a country’s culture and important national events. This differentiates PSM from the national commercial offer and from international global content.”
    Financial and political issues at the broadcaster, as well as instability in senior management, have hampered TVR from developing a long-term vision in the past. But a new team are now in place to take on the challenges raised in the report.

    Senior EBU consultant Boris Bergant said: “There is no doubt TVR faces numerous challenges over the forthcoming years but it now has a good understanding of the key issues it needs to tackle and how to overcome them.
    “The EBU will be there to support TVR as it works towards putting audiences back at the heart of its strategy and re-establishing itself as the trusted media of choice for the people of Romania.”
    Irina Radu, TVR’s president DG, said it was essential for TVR to change in order to survive. With guidance from the peer-to-peer review and an increased income, she added: “We should focus now on our reforms, convince the parliament to vote for new laws, convince the employees to change their priorities…and convince the public to give us back their trust, attention and time.”
    The final report is now available and highlights best practices that could also serve as a model for other EBU members.
    Ireland’s RTE will be the next EBU member to undergo a review.
