    Parent Category: News | 03-04-2013
    DIRECTV Sports in Latin America has launched its interactive website, PanAmericana, made available via the TV on channel 600.
    The channel offers daily sports broadcast information, such as schedules by country, channel and HD events, along with team info like player positions, points leaders and statistics, and schedules, available interactively on the portal.
    "The portal allows subscribers to navigate and keep up on sports programming, with highlights of the week, schedules and more, all on a single screen," explained Guillermo Barreto, director of DIRECTV Sports programming for Latin America.
    The first stage of the rollout will offer data for la Liga, Ligue 1, NBA and 2013 tennis (ATP and WTA).
    "Our subscribers will find highlights of the major teams and sporting events via a single remote control button, and can browse to find out what events are being played at that moment, and gain immediate access to them," said Barreto.
    The sports portal joins two other interactive platforms available to subscribers: channel 100 and DIRECTV Cinema.

    Travel Channel goes Freesat

    Editor | 03-04-2013
    Leading international travel broadcaster Scripps Networks has made its popular Travel Channel available on the UK’s free-to-air digital satellite TV service Freesat.
    Currently available on the Sky pay-TV DTH platform, which boasts over 10.4 million subs, by adding Freesat to its supported platforms Travel Channel is effectively adding three million more UK homes to its reach. The move follows a recent brand refresh across all international territories, and in addition to a new look and feel, the channel offers an enhanced schedule that is said to draw from the Scripps lifestyle content library as well as several new series.
    “We are very pleased to further expand the distribution of Travel Channel in the UK,” said Jon Sichel, managing director of Scripps EMEA. “This announcement is a testament to Travel Channel’s popularity among viewers, and we look forward to working with Freesat to enable even more UK households to enjoy the quality programming available on Travel Channel.”

    Trailer Park trashes old-school FTP for Aspera

    Michelle Clancy | 03-04-2013
    File transfer specialist Aspera has snagged Trailer Park as a customer, which has deployed a suite of Aspera software solutions to receive content from their clients and return completed advertising and commercial theatre trailer projects with comprehensive security and visibility over the entire transfer environment.
    Trailer Park works with major studios, networks and other media clients to create things like theatrical trailers for major motion pictures (Iron Man, The Grey and Alvin and the Chipmunks), product packaging, billboard ads, websites and mobile applications.
    In the past, Trailer Park used standard FTP to complete transfers to and from its media clients. But bandwidth congestion became an issue. "When the FTP system spontaneously crashed one day after a maintenance window, Trailer Park recognised that it was time to make a switch," it said. "Of key concern for a new transfer solution was security, given the nature of the content and the guidelines set forth by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA)."
    Trailer Park also wanted to attain greater visibility and control over the transfer environment, it said, "having experienced issues with bandwidth saturation in the past."
    It chose Aspera Shares for file sharing and ingest, Connect Server for high speed Web-based transfers, faspex for person-to-person file-based collaboration, and Console for centralised management and monitoring of the entire environment.
    Once Trailer Park receives the files, it begins work to create trailers, online or print advertisements, or other marketing services. When a project is completed, Trailer Park can deliver a hard asset or clients can use the Aspera Connect Server with the Shares file sharing Web interface to download the digital files at high speed using a standard browser.
    To centrally manage and monitor the system, Trailer Park uses Aspera Console, with real-time dashboards that display all transfer activity and provide control over bandwidth use and transfer priority.
    "We're doing more digital deliveries now than we ever have before, handling files as large as 400GB," said Michael Forester, IT director at Trailer Park. "Large file transfers take less time with Aspera than with anything else and we have complete visibility and control over the entire transfer environment."

    TELUS turns to Ericsson to bolster HD TV, advertising loudness

    Michelle Clancy | 03-04-2013
    Canadian carrier TELUS has tapped Ericsson's MPEG-4 AVC HD compression solution for its Optik TV IPTV service, to support HD video quality and compliance with the Government mandate for advertisement loudness control.
    TELUS, which offers both IPTV and satellite TV, had 678,000 customers by the end of 2012, up 169,000 viewers (33%) from a year earlier. TELUS Optik TV offers more than 600 channels, 145 in HD, and includes all their corresponding HD channels for no extra charge.
    "Video is such an important part of the at-home and on-the-go entertainment experience, and today's consumers demand more and more content at the highest possible quality," said Ibrahim Gedeon, TELUS' CTO. "We need technologies that allow us to exceed customer expectations for HD quality on an expansive selection of channels while staying ahead of the tremendous growth as we build out and enhance our network infrastructure. Ericsson has been a valued partner for nearly ten years, providing solutions for our IPTV services. We are pleased to once again work with Ericsson as we take our consumer TV experiences to the next level."
    Ericsson's most recent ConsumerLab research report shows that consumers are increasingly interested in the quality of their TV service, at least on the main TV screen in their home. As many as 41% of consumers are prepared to pay for HD, the study found.
    "There is little doubt that TV remains a premium experience worth paying for, but if this is to continue, operators must find ways to continue to innovate and meet consumer's expectations," said Ove Anebygd, vice president and head of TV at the Swedish infrastructure giant. "TV is constantly evolving, and operators must stay ahead of the game in order to drive their business forward. We're pleased to extend our work with TELUS to enable greater TV experiences through both live and on-demand content, giving consumers in Canada a higher quality experience than ever before."
    Meanwhile, Canada's CRTC 2011-102 law has mandated that TV commercials aren't allowed to be any louder on average than the shows that they accompany, under threat of penalties and fines.

    Sinclair outfits ten local US TV stations for mobile free-to-air DTV

    Michelle Clancy | 03-04-2013
    Sinclair Broadcast Group said that it will begin broadcasting mobile DTV-capable signals from ten stations in nine markets within the next six months.
    Consumers in mobile DTV markets that have DTV-embedded devices or a plug-in adaptor for smartphones and tablets, will be able to enjoy free, over-the-air content from local broadcast stations.
    Sinclair, in partnership with Cunningham Broadcasting Corporation, already provides mobile DTV on two stations (WSYX-TV and WTTE-TV) in Columbus, Ohio.
    "As local broadcasters who serve our communities every day, we witness first-hand the value our content and services provide to millions of viewers and businesses," said Mark Aitken, vice president of advanced technology for Sinclair and chairman of the ATSC A/153 mobile DTV standardisation activity. "The pace of technology makes it imperative for broadcasters to continue to lead in serving our communities. Broad adoption of mobile DTV, as a part of our local broadcast television offering, is the next step. We are confident our network partners will see the value mobile simulcasting brings in building station and network brands, audience share and local television relevancy."
    Sinclair, a founding member of the Mobile500 Alliance has agreed to commit some of its FOX affiliates to operate within the Mobile Content Venture's Dyle mobile TV environment, which is a paid subscription version of mobile DTV available through mobile carriers (Metro PCS is already live). Meanwhile, the M500 and MCV will continue to work towards a common platform solution.
    "In supporting today's mobile DTV standard, along with other local broadcasters in these markets, we will enhance the local broadcast television experience for free to our viewers," said Aitken. "Broadcast mobile DTV will allow the delivery of new broadcast services and products, greater access to news and events, and allows broadcasters to continue to maximise the effective use of the nation's spectrum resources."
    The stations and markets that Sinclair will support with mobile DTV are: Austin KEYE (CBS); Baltimore WBFF (FOX); Cincinnati WKRC (CBS); Columbus WSYX (ABC—already live); Columbus WTTE (FOX—already live); Dayton WKEF (ABC); Dayton WRGT (FOX); Asheville WLOS (ABC); Pittsburgh WPGH (FOX); Salt Lake City KUTV (CBS); St. Louis KDNL (ABC); and West Palm Beach WPEC (CBS).

    DISH Network plans $1BN debt offering to potentially shore up 4G strategy

    Michelle Clancy | 03-04-2013
    Looking to potentially shore up its 4G goals, US satellite juggernaut DISH Network plans to offer about $1 billion in debt.
    The satco will offer about $1 billion of its senior notes, subject to market and other conditions, the company said in a statement.
    DISH chairman Charlie Ergen has led the company on a strategy involving the acquisition of about $3 billion worth of wireless spectrum over the last few years, with an aim to create a nationwide 4G LTE network capable of rivalling AT&T and Verizon. To do that, DISH still needs to shore up its spectrum acquisition, likely with help from a partner, like Clearwire.
    Last fall, DISH received FCC approval to use its 40MHz of Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum to create a 4G mobile broadband network — and has plans to use Racecar as the brand name. The idea is not just to leap into the arguably saturated US wireless market, but to use 4G as a way to extend video beyond the home, on-net.
    "First and foremost, we want to do video inside and outside the house," Ergen said at the All Things D's Dive Into Media conference earlier in the year. "We'd like to own a wireless network so we can give you a quality of service."
    To make those plans come true, DISH is offering a $3.30 per-share price to secure a minority stake in Clearwire. But No 3 wireless carrier Sprint Nextel is trying to buy the rest of the shares that it doesn't already own in the carrier as well, and, while its bid has been capped by its majority shareholder Softbank at $2.97 per share, Sprint is entangled in a wide array of contractual obligations in Clearwire that would limit Clearwire's ability to sign a deal with DISH.
    The debt offering would raise cash for additional spectrum acquisitions, either through a wholesale arrangement or via an FCC auction, such as the one being planned for the broadcaster airwaves that were freed up by the switch to digital TV.

    Canal+ Spain, Applicaster bring Game of Thrones to the second screen

    Editor | 03-04-2013
    As the programme rapidly cements itself as the must-watch drama of the year in all regions, Game of Thrones is now accompanied by a second-screen app from Canal+ Spain.
    The Juego de Tronos app, Vive Poniente, was developed by white label broadcast platform provider Applicaster which already has a track record in delivering multiscreen experiences.
    For its part, Canal+ Spain sees such a product as a perfect way to extend its pay-TV offerings, claiming to be one of the first industry players to embrace the business benefits and understand the potential reach and value of second-screen TV viewing.
    Through the app, the Prisa TV subsidiary says that it can offer a complementary immersive TV experience during and after broadcast time. The app offers synchronised play-along features, launched at specific times within each episode. Viewers can earn points and achievement centre badges, enabling them to retrieve exclusive content, or win sponsored prizes.
    The developers are confident that the social TV features within the app will increase volume of the conversation and buzz around the show, especially during prime time. Users can explore which other of their Facebook friends has the app and who can be invited to watch, or use Twitter via the integrated live to check-in to the show.
    "Our main goal was to offer an extended TV experience that accompanies the viewer whenever they choose to watch an episode, whether it is during broadcast time, or after. Viewers decide." explained Berni Melero, Web & multimedia director, Canal+/Prisa TV. "Working with Applicaster, we had a choice too. The wealth of gamification available features to choose from and the ability to launch and manage content on our own enables us to easily offer added values to our viewers and increase the buzz around this season even further."
    "As in previous season, Juego de Tronos is expected to bring in high value ratings for Canal+, yet we can safely predict that the introduction of the second-screen app and activities will increase viewer engagement and involvement even further. Canal+ joins a group of innovative TV networks which embrace the TV on-the-go lifestyle to attract new viewers and retain existing ones, through a rich second-screen strategy" added Laura Tapias, VP LatAm and Spain at Applicaster.
