BBC launches public consultation on 'reinvention' of iPlayer – TBI Vision

The BBC said it would remain constrained about how it put new programmes on iPlayer by the terms of its business framework and the rights obtained from independent producers, as well as by having to compete with other broadcasters and VOD providers for the rights to put content on the service. In November Ofcom ordered the BBC to conduct a Public Interest Test on its planned changes to iPlayer, in a ruling that contradicted the pubcaster's board's own assessment of the impact of the proposed changes. - tbivision.com

Netflix to overtake Sky's satellite TV subscriptions by end of year

Sky has not been standing still as the digital streaming revolution has swept the UK. The company launched its Now TV streaming service at the end of 2012 - the same year Netflix entered the UK - and by the end of 2018 it is estimated it will have about 1.5 million subscribers. It will take another year or two for Netflix to overtake Sky UK's combined satellite TV and Now TV customer base, which will top 11 million at the end of this year. - www.theguardian.com

Review: Netgem's NetBox 4K Freeview Play set top box

Hot on the heels of their NetBox HD and SoundBox HD Freeview Play set top boxes, Netgem has unveiled the NetBox 4K, a brand-new model which adds support for Ultra HD on-demand shows and movies, as well as the ability to record Freview channels. As well as watching on the set top box, recordings can be viewed on your iPhone or Android mobile via a free companion app available for download from the iOS and Android app stores, provided you're at home and/or connected to the same network as your NetBox 4K. In a nice touch, the user can also use the mobile app to initiate playback of recordings on the box itself and can also be used as a remote control, with the ability to change channel and set/play and pause recordings on the box. - www.seenit.co.uk

Ofcom head calls on UK broadcasters to develop rival to Netflix

The head of UK media regulator Ofcom is urging public service broadcasters to collaborate on a streaming service for British TV shows that would capture audiences that have moved online to services such as Netflix. Sharon White's speech at the Outside the Box conference in London on Wednesday will be the latest call to arms for an industry bruised by changes in audience behaviour and technological disruption. If the growth of Netflix and Amazon tells us one thing, it is that viewers will flock to single destinations that offer a wide variety of quality content, she will say. Each of the big broadcasters operates an on-demand service, such as the BBC with its iPlayer. A common platform could combine the pulling power of Broadchurch, Blue Planet and Bake Off, Ms White plans to say. It would make it easier for viewers to access content across a range of devices, with a single login. The UKs PSBs worked on a joint streaming operation a decade ago in a project dubbed Kangaroo but the plans were ultimately blocked by the Competition Commission because of the impact a combined service would have had on the broader market. But since then international players such as Netflix and Amazon have built large international streaming businesses, with Netflix alone having more than 9m paying members in the UK. The company is increasingly outbidding UK broadcasters for the best programmes and has made hits such as The Crown, a drama about the life of Queen Elizabeth II. The UK PSBs have talked about renewing the Kangaroo project but discussions have not progressed. The BBC should take the lead on forming such a partnership, Ms White will say. Her call for action comes as the broadcasters prepare to launch a new app that will aggregate their on-demand operations. Freeview, which is owned and run by the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky and Arqiva, will launch the app on Wednesday. It will initially be available on Apple iOS devices with plans to launch on Android early next year. The app falls short of the single login offering envisaged by Ms White because viewers will still have to sign in to each individual service. However, Jonathan Thompson, the chief executive of Digital UK, the company that supports Freeview, said it was a positive example of media sector collaboration. The new app provides the aggregated experience that consumers increasingly expect from a TV provider, he will say on Wednesday. It will put the best of free-to-air content in one place on mobile, just as we have on TV. The new app is the result of a new £125m, five-year deal by Freeview's shareholders to develop new services. Carolyn McCall and Alex Mahon, the new chief executives of ITV and Channel 4, have also talked of the need to join forces in an increasingly competitive marketplace. BBC, Channel 4 and ITV are also pushing for the government to pass legislation that gives PSBs more prominence on new internet TV services. Ms White will tell the conference that Ofcom will advise the government next year on how prominence in an online world might be made to work.
