Discovery to Roll out Streaming Service Dplay in Europe | Georg Szalai | The Hollywood Reporter

Discovery to Roll out Streaming Service Dplay in Europe | Georg Szalai | The Hollywood Reporter | TV-market | Scoop.it

Discovery Communications is making good on its promise to roll out its Scandinavian over-the-top video (OTT) service Dplay in Europe as it aggressively adds digital offers to its business mix outside the U.S.

Dplay offers general entertainment, live sports and non-fiction content from the company's networks, which include Discovery Channel and TLC. The company said among the programming offered are classic episodes of Deadliest Catch.

Discovery CEO David Zaslav had earlier this year said that the company would take Dplay across Europe this year, but the company made things official on Thursday.

“Discovery Communications has a 30-year history of nurturing viewers with the highest quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy together," said JB Perrette, president of Discovery Networks International. "Building on our leadership in pay-TV channels, which are still growing at a strong pace, we are also aggressively launching digital, direct-to-consumer products in key markets, with a goal of reaching 1 million subscribers by 2017."

OTT Video Is Creating Cord-Extenders, Not Cord-Cutters | TV-market | Scoop.it
“This year’s Emmy ballot is being culled from the greatest number of scripted dramas eligible in the history of the Television Academy. From Orange Is the New Black to Game of Thrones, from House of Cards to Grace and Frankie, we are enjoying some of the highest-quality TV programming that’s ever been produced and we’re binge-watching many shows whenever and wherever we choose. The irony of this so-called “Golden Age of Television” is that in the corporate corridors of the TV industry, many are still searching for the pot of gold at the end of this programming rai”

OTT Revenue On Pace To Double In Four Years

OTT Revenue On Pace To Double In Four Years | TV-market | Scoop.it
“ Show of hands: If you wanted to watch a James Bond marathon, would you turn to a Netflix-esque over-the-top service, or a traditional network running a marathon of the movies? A few years ago, there was only one answer: the network. Now, there are more choices. While the question is a rhetorical one without hard and fast numbers, many media executives are betting that the Netflix-viewing option is poised to command a larger chunk of consumer behavior in the next few years.”

Apple TV licensing talks said to have stalled

Apple TV licensing talks said to have stalled | TV-market | Scoop.it
“ Apple is now aiming for a 2016 launch for its planned cloud TV with licensing talks progressing slowly, according to a Bloomberg report, writes Digital TV Europe. Citing people familiar with Apple’s plans,Bloomberg said that Apple had scrapped plans to launch the online TV service at an event in San Francisco on September 9, but will still launch an updated version of its Apple TV set-top box then. The report claimed content licensing talks with the likes of CBS and 21st Century Fox were moving slowly and that price was “the main stumbling block.” Apple has also reportedly encountered capacity issues related to offering a fast and glitch-free viewing experience. Reports earlier this year claimed that Apple was aiming to launch an online TV service this autumn in partnership with broadcasters including ABC, CBS and Fox. Apple is said to be planning a “slimmed-down” cable-style bundle of roughly 25 channels that will be available to view across Apple devices.”

US pay TV providers lose 470,000 subs in Q2

US pay TV providers lose 470,000 subs in Q2 | TV-market | Scoop.it
“ The 13 largest pay TV providers in the US, representing roughly 95% of the market, lost around 470,000 net video subscribers in the second quarter, according to new research. The Leichtman Research Group study found that the subscriber drop-off widened from a loss of around 305,000 video subscribers in Q2 2014, with satellite TV providers the hardest hit. The report said that satellite providers DirecTV and DISH lost a combined 214,000 subscribers in Q2 2015, compared to a loss of 78,000 in Q2 2014. DirecTV’s 133,000 net losses in the quarter were more than in any previous quarter, while DISH lost 81,000 subscribers – despite making gains with its internet-delivered Sling TV service. All of the top US cable companies also shed subscribers in Q2, with the three largest, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Charter losing 69,000, 43,000 and 30,000 respectively. In total, the top nine cable companies lost about 260,000 video subscribers in 2Q 2015. However, this compared to a bigger loss of about 510,000 subscribers in 2Q 2014, according to the report. “[Overall] the top pay TV providers lost about 470,000 subscribers in the traditionally weak second quarter, with net losses in 2Q 2015 exceeding the previous low-water mark of about 360,000 losses in 2Q 2013,” said Leichtman Research Group president and principal analyst, Bruce Leichtman. “Cumulatively, telcos and DBS providers both had their weakest quarter ever for net video additions, leaving the door open for cable providers to have their fewest cumulative losses in a second quarter in seven years.” Seprately, Leichtman Research Group found that the 17 largest cable and telephone providers in the US, representing about 94% of the market, acquired about 360,000 net additional high-speed Internet subscribers in the second quarter of 2015. Earlier this month, an SNL Kagan report said that US multi-channel service providers lost more than 600,000 video subscribers in the three months ended June 30.”
