    HOOQ launches filmmakers' guild, strengthens original content


    Asian video streaming platform HOOQ has launched a TV series creation initiative, whereby the best scripts put forward will be funded for production of a pilot episode.


    HOOQ Critical Eleven 29 April 2017The Sony Pictures, Warner Bros and Singtel-backed subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform is calling for professional directors, producers or scriptwriters to submit scripts and treatments for TV series proposals. The five best of these – from Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, India, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Cambodia – will be given funding of US$30,000 to produce a pilot episode that will debut on HOOQ.

    The best of the five pilot episodes, as decreed by an expert judging panel along with HOOQ subscribers, will be developed into an entire series and distributed by HOOQ.

    “There is incredible talent for TV series making in Asia, and we want to give opportunities to film professionals to turn these amazing ideas into reality. HOOQ is built in Asia for Asia and we want to give Asian filmmakers the power to create quality entertainment that gives our customers that escape into worlds of romance, action, adventure and even heroism, all in the setting of their backyard,” said Peter Bithos, CEO, HOOQ.

    The SVOD platform also unveiled five new Asian originals at the Asia Pay TV Operators (APOS) conference in Bali.

    “There is a huge thirst for high-quality, unique Asian stories, told from an Asian perspective,” said Bithos. “We aim to satisfy this with HOOQ originals on our platform.”

    HOOQ is set to expand an original series it produced with Globe Studios, called On The Job, from Filipino director Erik Matti. The five-episode crime thriller will now become a feature length film, which will be screened by HOOQ in cinemas in the Philippines in August, prior to streaming on the digital platform.

    The T Party, an eight-part romantic comedy, centres on the online dating world. Also from the Philippines, it is directed by Joyce Bernal and Marvin Agustin.

    The other three new projects are feature length films hailing from Indonesia. They comprise: revenge drama Marlina The Murderer in Four Acts; romantic drama Critical Eleven (pictured), an adaptation of a bestselling novel from Ika Natassa; and Sweet 20, a remake of CJ Entertainment's popular comedy from 2014 Miss Granny.

    Scripps to produce exclusive original Shows for Snapchat


    US lifestyle content specialist Scripps Networks Interactive has announced a new deal with Snap Inc that will bring new food- and home-related programming, including Shows, to Snapchat’s Discover platform.

    food network 7 April 2017Under the terms of the deal, several of Scripps Networks’ popular TV networks, Food Network and HGTV, will begin developing and producing Shows for Snapchat. Food Network was one of the original publishers for Snapchat’s launch of Discover in January 2015 and has since been creating publisher stories for the social platform. Food Network will also continue to curate its Publisher Stories for Discover, which have seen significant growth among Snapchatters globally over the last two years.

    “Snapchat’s distinctive mobile platform provides an ideal environment for us to touch millennials and centennials who may not yet be hooked on our premium offerings,” said Henry Ahn, Scripps Networks’ president of content distribution and marketing. “We’re finding more and more new fans among the hard-to-reach mobile natives.”

    Added Nick Bell, vice president of content for Snap Inc: “HGTV and Food Network are masters of addictive and inventive TV, and it makes perfect sense to bring that programming expertise to Snapchat Shows. Scripps has been an important partner for us since our launch of Discover, and we’re thrilled that Snapchatters will soon have access to more entertaining content from some of their most popular networks.”

    YouTube makes major original content push


    est.cover.ever 5may2017In the midst of a season of newfronts that has seen over-the top (OTT) players throw down the gauntlet to the traditional TV industry, online video behemoth YouTube has unveiled a slate of original content aimed squarely at the TV mainstream.

    Major stars such as Kevin Hart, Rhett and Link, Ellen DeGeneres, Katy Perry, The Slow Mo Guys, Demi Lovato and Ludacris have been signed up to star in new ad-supported shows premiering exclusively on YouTube, free to users. The move is an extension of the YouTube Red premium original content service launched in 2016 which to date has released 30 TV series and films in just over a year.

    “When excited fans, brands, and creators tell us something, we listen,” commented YouTube chief business officer Robert Kyncl. “We’re thrilled to announce that beginning later this year, some of the biggest YouTube creators and Hollywood names will be featured in seven new series on YouTube — bringing more can’t-get-enough-of and can’t-find-anywhere-else shows to everyone, everywhere. With these new shows, brands can be a part of content that’s generating buzz around the world.”

    Among the standout shows will be Ellen’s Show Me More Show, a twice-a-week series built just for YouTube, giving fans behind the scenes access to some of the biggest stars appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, plus her favourite moments. In Good Mythical Morning: Worldwide, Rhett & Link, hosts of YouTube’s most popular daily show, will offer a long-form expansion of their popular well known show to give fans even more stunts, challenges, and comedy.

    Johnson & Johnson Consumer Brands will be the first advertising partner for the new content. In addition to a major investment in creators through Google Preferred, it has signed on as the exclusive sponsor of talent competition Best.Cover.Ever.

    “We’re excited to partner with top creators and world-class production companies to offer these new shows to audiences globally—on the platform where the world chooses to watch over a billion hours of video every day,” Kyncl added. “People turn to YouTube to express themselves, engage with creators, and connect with the thriving communities they’re proud to be a part of. This vibrant fan and creator community is also why brands turn to YouTube.”

    Mediaset nets international basketball rights until 2021


    FIBA competitions have gained a free-to-air (FTA) Spanish home in Mediaset for the next four years.


    mediaset fiba 06 may 2017The media group has acquired broadcasting rights for the FIBA EuroBasket 2017, the FIBA Worldcup 2019 in China and the EuroBasket 2021, both for the qualification and the final rounds.

    Mediaset will live broadcast the games through its three not-themed channels, Telecinco, Cuatro and Be Mad and the video-on-demand (VOD) and streaming service Mitele.

    Through this agreement, Mediaset renews its long-term partnership with the basketball organisation, as the group has been home of the FIBA competitions since the World Cup 2014, held in Spain. That time, Mediaset broke viewership records with nearly 26% share and over 4.5 million viewers during the quarter-finals game between Spain and France.

    The new FIBA deal will premiere next September, with the EuroBasket 2017, which is to be held in Israel, Romania, Finland and Turkey.

    All streaming media adapters to be 4K-enabled in leading regions by 2022


    As the launch of linear 24x7 services such as DirecTV Now and YouTube TV increase the relevance and uptake of streaming media devices, all of which devices in leading regions will be 4K-ready by 2022 says analyst ABI Research.

    Spuul 25 April 2017In its Media Devices: UltraHD, 4K, HDR, 8K, HEVC report, the analyst calculates that worldwide streaming media adapters will reach nearly 56 million shipments in 2022. “4K streaming devices are just entering the market in the highest end products,” explained ABI Research managing director and vice president Sam Rosen. “4K streaming devices represent about 35% and 24% of streaming device shipments in North America and Western Europe, respectively, in 2017. However, as penetration of 4KTVs grows, so will the revenue opportunities from Ultra HD definition purchases and rentals, as well as premium early release content. Pricing premium for these formats represents substantial revenue opportunity for studios and streaming service providers, and this will drive a faster shift to 4K streaming media adapters.”

    “Video streaming services are increasingly becoming a replacement alternative for traditional pay-TV services as operators partner with third-party OTT players or start to offer standalone streaming services, such as Dish Networks’ Sling TV and Now TV by Sky in Europe,” added Khin Sandi Lynn, industry analyst at ABI Research. “This abundance of low-cost and no-contract video streaming services drives the adoption of media streaming devices, which can be given freely or heavily subsidized for subscriber acquisition.”

    ABI believes that select service providers who prefer more controlled ecosystems are bringing to market dedicated streaming devices to target consumers who plan to cut the cord and/or never subscribed to a traditional pay-TV service. It argues that while the boxes provide pay-TV operators with supreme security and flexibility, the struggle for many pay-TV operators lies in convincing consumers to install a new box that does not handle other popular video services. As a result, ABI concludes in the report, retail video streaming devices that support multiple streaming devices and smart TVs will likely continue to hold the market majority over operator-branded boxes.

    Eutelsat closes sale of Hispasat stake for €302MN


    eutelsat 20May2017Eutelsat has reached an agreement with Abertis Group on the sale of its 33.69% stake in Spanish satellite operator Hispasat to Abertis.


    The agreed price for Eutelsat’s stake is €302 million, representing an EBITDA multiple of 7.1x based on Hispasat’s 2016 results. The closing of the transaction is subject to Spanish government approval and other customary conditions precedent, and is expected in the second half of calendar year 2017.

    Eutelsat said that the divestment of the stake was consistent with its strategy of rationalising its portfolio of assets in order to maximise cash generation.

    It first announced its intention to divest its stake in Hispasat in July 2016 when it exercised the option granted in 2008 by Abertis, Hispasat’s majority shareholder. It began negotiations with Spain’s Abertis in March 2017.

    The deal means that Abertis will own around 90% of Hispasat which during its last business year reported €228.9 million of revenues, a 4.2% increase compared with the previous year. By area, 35.4% of the revenue came from Europe and Northern Africa, while 64.6% came from the increasingly key North and South American markets. In January 2017, it launched the Hispasat 36W-1 satellite, while the Amazonas 5 and Hispasat 30W-6 craft are set for launch later this year.
