MNOs vs broadcasters again, this time in Europe's 700MHz

The European Union is proposing to make the 700MHz broadcast spectrum available for mobile broadband within six years, but the GSM Association says that is not soon enough.


The mobile operators' alliance called on the EU to release the spectrum more quickly – in the 2018-2020 timeframe, or even earlier, rather than 'from 2020' as recommended by a new Digital Agenda proposal submitted to Europe's digital commissioner, Neelie Kroes.

Streaming closing in on linear viewing, says Ericsson

Streaming closing in on linear viewing, says Ericsson | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

Streaming habits are “closing in on linear TV” consumption, with the proportion of streamed video consumption now almost on a par with scheduled broadcast TV, according to a new global study by Ericsson.

The 2014 ConsumerLab report on TV and media trends found that 75% of consumers watched streamed video – including YouTube clips, TV shows and movies – a more than weekly basis, up substantially from 61% in 2011.

By comparison, 77% of consumers watched scheduled broadcast TV on a more than weekly basis in 2014, down from 83% in 2011.

Discussing the findings, Niklas Heyman Rönnblom, a senior advisor at Ericsson ConsumerLab, said that he does not believe that scheduled broadcast will “go away”

“When we talk scheduled broadcast TV here, we have to divide it into two different points of content – live TV and non-live TV. When we see this decrease in linear scheduled TV, I would argue that it’s non-live TV, like TV series, movies and so-on that are migrating to new ways of watching TV.”

At the same time, Ericsson found that there was also a major decline in the consumption of recorded broadcast TV on devices like DVRs. The proportion of consumers doing this dropped from 47% in 2011 to 28% in 2014.

Similarly DVD and Blu-ray viewing dropped from 31% to 25% of viewers over the same time period.

“The main reason for that is convenience. A lot of consumers are shifting those habits to new ways of watching TV and video, like streaming, because you don’t have to plan ahead, you don’t have to record and you can access your content through any device – not only the one that’s connected to your DVR,” said Rönnblom.

He added: “By the end of 2020 we will see that consumers consume as much on-demand content as they do linear content.”

Nokia looks to widen the appeal of LTE Broadcast | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

Mobile video has had a troubled journey to say the least. Who remembers MediaFlo and DTH? One of the main problems has been coping with the vast amount of individual video stream requests over an already crowded mobile network. There was also the cost to subscribers, who are no longer offered unlimited data plans. Which is where LTE Broadcast comes in.

LTE Broadcast specialist Expway continues its steady growth in US by establishing Expway Corp. | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it
Expway Corp., the newly established US entity, serves as the central base for the company’s operations throughout the country. It is also the main hub for the company’s worldwide sales and marketing efforts.
Mountain View, CA, was a natural choice for us: It is a perfect location to support our existing North American customers, such as Verizon and their trials during the Super Bowl and Indy 500, and to carry out IODTs with Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent, their Radio Access Network vendors.
Also being at the Silicon Valley allows us to be close to the new-tech development wave and launch our new line of products that will leverage eMBMS in an unprecedented way.


We look forward to talking with meeting you—for example, at CTIA, IBC, CES, and NAB!

Navigating the Shift From TV to Mobile | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

Until recently, traditional TV players had brushed off the notion that digital will have a heavy impact on their business or market share. Honestly who could blame them, considering the platform continues to grow (even today), but the mistake in this thinking was not taking the shift in technology or viewer behaviors into account. The heavy up-tick in digital video options along with the introduction of smartphones and tablets has given consumers something they never had before with traditional television – a choice!
