Damon Phillips, VP of Watch ESPN and ESPN3, said that two thirds of smartphone viewing occurred outside of the home.
Mr. Phillips went on to say that he was very surprised at the length of time people watched. On a smartphone, 15 minute viewing periods are common, while tablet viewing can go the whole length of a game.
With respect to the smartphone, this led Mr. Phillips to comment that ESPN targeted shorter subject matter at the devices. The long viewing times on tablets, however, suggest it is being used as a TV replacement.
The BBC said that mobile and tablet traffic accounted for a record high of 37% of programme requests to its iPlayer catch-up service in October.
According to the BBC’s October iPlayer performance pack, mobile device requests were almost in line with PC viewing, which accounted for 39% of iPlayer traffic.
Filipino operator Smart Communications said it has conducted the first successful video multicast over LTE is in Southeast Asia. When the service comes to market, Smart believes that the technology will allow consumers in the Philippines to watch lag-free live video on their LTE smartphones and tablets.
There is no doubt about it. Netflix Inc. killed Blockbuster LLC.
And the over-the-top giant did not need an amazing strategy or special trick to do it.
Taking part in a Nov. 20 panel discussion at the OTTtv World Summit, an annual conference in London that focuses on the global OTT market, Haggai Barel, the deputy CEO of Viaccess-Orca, warned everyone in the audience to learn from Blockbuster's dramatic downfall, especially the operators.
"They had the same DVDs, but Netflix killed the No. 1 video chain in the U.S. simply by changing engagement," said the executive from Viaccess-Orca, which is part of France Telecom Group.
Blockbuster faltered because its management, terrified of change, could not adapt to a changing environment.
Operators also might be suspicious and concerned about the next generation of television, but they must stay competitive.
"You need to move faster," Barel warned, expressing his frustration with the progress operators have made so far. "Currently, telcos are afraid of losing control and losing subscribers, not only to existing competition, but also to new entrants like the pure OTT players, such as Netflix."
C’est ici qu’intervient une nouvelle révolution : l’Internet radiodiffusé ou « IP Broadcast », pour faire plus chic. Cette technologie permet à la radiodiffusion d’intégrer le monde Internet en y apportant des avantages majeurs non seulement pour la radio mais pour tout l’écosystème des médias et des télécommunications.
Expliquons nous : aujourd’hui sur Internet, si vous souhaitez écouter une radio, votre terminal envoie une requête par un réseau de télécommunications jusqu’à un serveur qui vous livre en retour, par ce réseau, un flux unique qui vous sera dédié. À chaque auditeur correspond un flux ; avec les coûts en conséquence, tant pour le consommateur, que l’éditeur de programmes, sans oublier l’encombrement des réseaux de télécommunications.
Avec l’IP Broadcast, c’est un tout autre scenario : un émetteur dessert une zone de couverture pour un prix fixe indépendamment du nombre de récepteurs à l’écoute. Le prix est le même quel que soit le nombre de récepteurs à l’écoute, et la réception ne coûte rien à l’auditeur. Cette technique est maintenant disponible au protocole Internet.

4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. is collaborating with leading LTE infrastructure supplier, Huawei, to advance eMBMS (evolved multimedia broadcast multicast service) technology.
eMBMS, also known as LTE Broadcast, is an advanced mobile data delivery technology that enables mobile operators to significantly reduce the cost of delivering high-bandwidth content such as video and audio to multiple users at one time over LTE networks.
Huawei and Sequans have conducted successful interoperability tests of eMBMS technology using Huawei’s LTE infrastructure equipment and end user devices based on Sequans’ eMBMS-capable LTE semiconductor solution. The two companies successfully demonstrated the delivery of live video and audio broadcast using both TDD and FDD and observed excellent performance during several testing sessions.

November, 2013, Geneva, Switzerland. Here comes a news report from the 106th MPEG in Geneva, Switzerland which was actually during the Austrian national day but Austrian Airlines had a nice present (see picture) for their guests.

A report from Korea’s ET News, alleging LG has started to shift some resources from smartphones to smart TVs, has been branded “completely false” by the South Korean manufacturer.
For Late Millennials (those between the ages of 18 and 24), video consumption is less and less tied to the television set and, when it is, only half turn first to "regular" live TV broadcasts. This represents an alarming shift in behavior that will have a impact across the video value chain.
Whether you're a content network, a traditional or virtual operator, or an app or platform company, understanding the behavior of this segment is no longer an option but an imperative. This is why we first fielded this study in May 2013.
The white spaces are being examined worldwide as a new source of unlicensed spectrum which could provide new, affordable capacity for broadband services, especially in unserved rural areas. However, there is little consensus on the best use for the spectrum - various standards from Wi-Fi to the IEEE's 802.22 to Neul's Weightless are vying to use the frequencies, for various applications from free consumer access to M2M services.
With content delivery issues accounting for nearly 70% of viewers’ frustration with online video, streaming services should prioritise user experience or see advertising and subscription revenues suffer.
Thirty-six million UK internet users watched video online this February, according to comScore’s April 2013 report. A rapidly growing library of online video offered by the BBC iPlayer and other broadcasters along with companies like Netflix, LOVEFiLM, blinkbox and the newly launchedWuaki.tv, is helping drive adoption.
