Following the end of analogue broadcasting in
December 2013, Australians have been able
to access many more free-to-air (FTA) TV
channels as digital broadcasts. This has
dispersed viewing preferences among
consumers, with the result that TV programming
is more fragmented. Although there are
more channels available, the number of viewing
hours has remained relatively stable for a
number of years, and as a result, individual
channels and particularly specific shows
have seen declining viewer numbers.
Viewing habits have also been affected
by the advent of catch-up TV services,
which
have
been
made
available
from the main broadcasters for two to three
years. In addition, the launch of subscription
video services from operators such as
Presto, Stan and Netflix will further erode
liner TV viewing as subscribers can now
choose to watch their desired programmes.
The shift away from linear TV has seen the
penetration of TV in households fall to about
88% by early 2015. It was also reported
that the Australian film and TV industries
have shrunk 12% in the past five years
(Deloitte Access Economics).
Australia has five major FTA networks which
comprises
of
Australian
Broadcasting
Corporation (ABC), Seven Network, Nine
Network, Network Ten and SBS. Each network
initially had a single channel in a geographic
area, though with the arrival of digital
television each network now has one extra
4 | tva plus ANNUAL GUIDE 2015/2016

SD multichannel – 7Two, GO!, Eleven and SBS
Two respectively, and one HD multichannel
– 7mate, GEM, One and SBS HD. With the
exception of SBS, each commercial broadcaster
also has one SD data casting channel − TV4ME,
Extra and TVSN respectively; SBS instead
broadcasts NITV free-to-air.
Australia has two main government-owned
TV channels − ABC and SBS, along with
multichannels – ABC2, ABC3 and SBS Two,
which are both available on free-to-air via
Optus D1 satellite. Viewers in remote parts
of Australia could also access Seven Central
and Imparja Television, or WIN WA and GWN
in Western Australia, through the DVB-S2 freeto-view Optus VAST service.
Australia pay-TV industry consists of the
dominant cable and satellite television provider
Foxtel and its regional subsidiary Austar,
with some smaller cable and satellite competitors
operating in limited areas. Other providers
of Internet television in Australia offer free
content or PPV.

In November 2014, Australian News Channel
Pty Ltd and Lightning International Ltd
announced the launch of Australia Channel,
which will present the best of Australian
news, business and sport – backed by the
resources of SKY NEWS Australia, a joint
venture of Australia’s two biggest free-to-air
networks Seven and Nine and BSkyB.
In March 2015, SVOD provider Netflix was
launched in Australia and New Zealand.
Netflix is the sixth SVOD service that
Australians and New Zealanders can pay to
view.
In April 2015, Screen Australia announced
development funding of over $620,000
for 16 feature films and professional
development opportunities for two emerging
filmmakers. The funding announcement
sees internationally based, award-winning
Australian talent returning home to develop
bold and original local stories.

FREE–TO–AIR

KEY DEVELOPMENTS
In July, Audio Network Australia integrated
fully into Audio Network Group. The
international music company has acquired a
49% shareholding in Audio Network Australia
Pty Ltd from co-founder Linda Tizard.
The acquisition demonstrates the Group’s
continuing determination to expand globally
and develop its vision whilst retaining the
innovative and creative force behind the
group’s success.

In the same month, ABC1 under when channel
rebranding. The ABC’s main television channel,
ABC1, is being renamed ABC and will have
a new tagline, encompassing a social media
hash tag for the first time − #ourABC. The
public broadcaster has labelled the rebranding
exercise “bold, simple, raw and real”. It includes
new on-air station identification material in
the trade, featuring everyday Australians and
ABC personalities.

In September 2014, Australia’s Nine partnered
Fairfax Media to launch SVOD service,
StreamCo. It is expected to launch this year and
will offer a broad range of local and international
programming to subscribers for a fixed
monthly subscription fee and no minimum term
commitment.
In October 2014, Screen Australia and the
Korean Film Council (KOFIC) signed an official
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Busan.
The MoU signing is part of the process to enable
official film and television co-productions to be
made by the two countries. Screen Australia
and KOFIC will implement the Co-production
Arrangement once the Korea-Australia Free Trade
Agreement, containing an Annex on Audiovisual
Co-production, is in place.

***** China Television Industry Market Report, June 2011

The world’s most populous nation boasts
the largest number of internet users, at
564 million. In recent years, the emergence
of Youku Tudou, iQiyi, PPTV and Sana have
increased the popularity of online video
websites in China. Youku Tudou, China’s biggest
online video giant, features commissioned
programmes from a myriad of channels
including Hong Kong’s TVB and CTE and also
user-generated content.
Besides acquiring programmes, online video
platforms like Youku Tudou have started
to include more local productions via usergenerated content. Youku Tudou has a revenue
sharing programme that allows qualified
participants to be paid from advertisements
placed in their videos which encourages more
user-generated content.
Last November, Tencent Holdings Limited and
HBO announced a strategic partnership at
the Tencent Video V Conference in Beijing.
Tencent Video will be the sole official provider
online to offer award-winning HBO drama
series including Band of Brothers, Boardwalk
Empire, Game of Thrones, Rome, The
Newsroom, True Detective and a number of
other leading TV and movie titles from HBO
and HBO Asia.
Charles Schreger, President of Programming
Sales, HBO said, “The HBO brand is
synonymous with ground-breaking original
programming. The storytelling as well as
the scale and scope of production on series
such as Game of Thrones and Boardwalk
Empire, is simply unmatched in the
entertainment industry. This partnership with
Tencent Video ensures that Chinese fans
will now be able to enjoy our dramas at the

high level of quality they were meant to be
experienced. This is a great partnership for
both companies and for the Chinese consumer
as well.”
STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS
Last year, Alcatel-Lucent closed the sale
of its subsidiary, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise
– which provides communications and
networking solutions – to China Huaxin Post
& Telecommunication Economy Development
Centre for €202 million in cash proceeds.
Alcatel-Lucent retained a 15% minority stake in
the divested business, as well as a commercial
relationship with it in support of its growth
ambitions under new ownership.
The divestment of Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise
forms part of Alcatel-Lucent’s commitments
under The Shift Plan launched in June 2013
– to refocus itself as a specialist in IP, Cloud
and Ultra-Broadband Access while realigning
its balance sheet, implementing cost savings
of €1 billion and generating at least €1 billion
through selective asset sales by the end
of 2015.
INTERNET CONTENT DELIVERY
Akamai Technologies, Inc. also announced a
strategic partnership agreement with China
Telecom Corporation Limited’s cloud division,
CT Cloud. CT Cloud offers quality cloud
services to customers. As part of the strategic
partnership, CT Cloud has agreed to offer an
integrated solution incorporating Akamai’s
full suite of media delivery, web performance,
and cloud security offerings with its own
Cloud services to Chinese businesses
looking to grow their global web presence.
In addition, the partnership is designed to
enable close cooperation between the two
companies in the areas of technology and
network access, thus strengthening Akamai’s
China CDN offering for accelerating content
from global customers to Chinese consumers.
“With trade in and out of China continuing to
increase, Chinese enterprises require a high
performing, secure, and always available
Web presence to compete in today’s multinational marketplace,” said Wu Xiangdong,
General Manager of CT Cloud. “Enterprise
web infrastructure must be agile and
scalable, providing users with a consistently
fast and reliable experience. Our choice is
to partner with Akamai to provide our
enterprise customers with superior Internet
content delivery across the globe.”
Under the partnership, CT Cloud plans to
leverage Akamai for content delivery network
(CDN) technology that will be available for
the delivery of its Cloud services. Akamai
enables operators to deploy a highly scalable,
completely turnkey CDN that leverages
the same technologies found within the
Akamai Intelligent PlatformTM.

CHINA

CO-PRODUCTIONS
China has also upped its number of
working
with
several
co-productions,
broadcasters and producers in the AsiaPacific region. This year, Singaporean
Prod-Co IFA Media will co-produce with
China
Intercontinental
Centre
(CICC).
Crossroads: The Silk Road will be shot in
four countries across Asia’s most beautiful
landscapes. This landmark coproduction
is the 3rd of CICC and IFA Media
collaborations, from The Chinese Hajj for
National Geographic, to Rebuilding Sichuan
for Discovery Channel Asia (nominated for
Best Social Awareness Programme at the
2011 Asian TV Awards).
Huaso Film/TV Digital Production, the jointventure production company of Sony Pictures
Television (SPT) and CCTV6’s HuaCheng
Pictures, has concluded a deal with Croton
Media to co-produce a local version of
the highly popular and critically-acclaimed
comedy Mad About You for audiences in China.
In addition to Mad About You, Huaso has
produced local versions of other popular
SPT scripted and non-scripted formats in
China, including talk show Dr. Oz, as well
as competition series Raid the Cage and
Dancing Nation.

US$534.0 million*****

In November last year, CASBAA, the AsiaPacific Association of the pay-TV industry,
urged the Hong Kong legislature to end a
decade of delay and pass amendments
to Hong Kong’s copyright law to give
content creators and owners the right –
at least in theory – to authorise electronic
dissemination of their content.
At the same time, the Association – with
membership including “globally-renowned
broadcasters and news organisations with
a strong vested interest in protecting
creative and political expression” – said
that worries that the amendments could
represent “some sort of threat to free and
open political expression” are off target.
The comments came in a submission to
the legislative committee considering the
Amendments.
“Hong Kong citizens may have reasons
to be concerned about protecting their
rights of free expression from challenges,
but the Copyright Amendments are not
such a challenge,” said CASBAA CEO
Christopher Slaughter. “We are aware of
no other copyright regime with exceptions
and limitations that are more protective
of freedom of political expression than
the proposed Hong Kong approach, and
we think that the Legislature needs to get
on with the important business of passing
this bill.”

HONG KONG

As a result, CASBAA told the legislature,
“The television industry in particular is
already suffering huge harm from online
piracy unrestrained by existing inadequate
laws.” Evidence is not hard to come by. The
Association observed that the elevated levels
and huge growth trend in online piracy are
“plain to see for anyone with the will to have
open eyes.”
Medeiros noted that – even while it supports
rapid passage of the legislation – the TV
industry remains critical of the large weaknesses
of the Amendment Bill. “Establishment of a right
to authorise communication of copyrighted
works will not solve the piracy problem,” he
said, and further steps are urgently needed.
“Hong Kong is now way behind the curve,”
Medeiros added. The Amendment Bill will
implement for the first time copyright treaties
signed almost 20 years ago, and “it is an
absolutely necessary first step,” he said. In
addition, CASBAA is urging the government
to immediately begin considering further
steps to restore balance and provide a new
breath of life to Hong Kong’s creative industries.
SATELLITE
In September 2014, SatLink Communications
launched its new Point of Presence (PoP)
in Hong Kong. The new South East Asian
based PoP, which accompanies SatLink’s
multiple PoP’s in New York , London, Frankfurt
and additional worldwide located PoP’s
via partners, has been selected to provide
both broadcasters and TV operators located
in Asia and those looking to expand their
reach into the Asian region.
Located at the Equinox Data Centre, one of
the busiest centre’s for trade in Hong Kong,
the PoP provides both international and local
connectivity for broadcasters and operators
allowing for quick and low latency connectivity
to and out of the APAC region.
The PoP will be integrated into SatLink’s
global satellite and fibre network to enable
customers to extend their audience reach into
new markets and gain access to SatLink’s
full range of end-to-end broadcast services
including HD playout, content management
and OTT solutions.
Satlink currently operates two MCPC
(Multi Channel Per Carrier) platforms on the

AsiaSat 5 C-band satellite, delivering content
for tier one international and news broadcasters
to Asian Pay TV markets in DVB-S2 and Free to
air markets in DVB-S.
AUDIENCE MEASUREMENT
now TV, CSM Media Research (CSM) and
Kantar Media introduced Hong Kong’s
first integrated cross-platform audience
measurement using Return-Path-Data (RPD)
technology for tracking viewership of content
on now TV’s television, online and OTT
platforms. The Return-Path Rating Service
(RPR) will be the first cross-platform viewership
measurement by using RPD in Hong Kong
based on automated system-captured data.
To deliver accuracy and to enable more detailed
customer segmentation, a large panel of 2,000
samples representative of now TV’s customer
demographics is used for the projection of
the lifestyle and consumption pattern of now
TV’s 1.2 million-strong subscriber base.

Chief Policy Officer John Medeiros noted that
CASBAA – along with other copyright industry
groups – has been pressing for improvements
in Hong Kong’s law for years. In the decade
since the government began this process,
he said, “The world of TV has been transformed.
Old copyright laws never foresaw the degree
to which broadband connections can be used
to bring huge quantities of pirated digital
content to every home in Hong Kong from
places where copyright protection is weak.”

INDOCHINA & MYANMAR

Technology used in the pay-TV sector in
Vietnam’s TV industry includes cable TV (e.g.
analogue, digital or IPTV), digital terrestrial
TV (e.g. DVB-T), direct-to-home (DTH) and
mobile TV. Vietnam has a total of 67
broadcasters that manage 899 TV stations
with 1,610 broadcasting machines that
cover
98.9
percent
of
Vietnam’s
territory. The Ministry of Information and
Communication stated that there are 40 payTV service providers in Vietnam and 4.5 million
subscribers of which 70 percent of the
pay-TV subscribers are controlled by the
national TV, Vietnam Television (VTV).
In November 2014, Vietnam Television (VTV)
has licensed 4 seasons of Armoza’s crime
drama The Arbitrator. The 4 seasons will
comprise 45 episodes and will be locally
(Facing
known as
the Darkness). Production is set to start in
2015 with air dates starting from early 2016,
and will be headed up by VTV’s production
company, the Vietnam Television Film Center
(VFC).
CJ E&M-Vietnam co-produced film, Let
Hoi Decide (De Mai Tinh2) has become the
biggest box office hit in Vietnam announced
by CJ E&M. Its ticket sales reached
$3.85 million on 30 December, 2014,
beating the record of the previous megahit
film TEO EM. In 2015, CJ E&M is expected
to further carry out co-production projects
with partners in Vietnam. The company aims
to distribute at least ten films and produce
two to three local films every year. As
part of the project, another Korea-Vietnam
co-produced film 3 Girls is scheduled to
be released in the first half of this year.
In March 2015, Global Agency announced
the first big success of its unique music
reality format The Remix in Vietnam. After its
launch on VTV3, The Remix became the most
popular TV show in the country.
In May 2015, Globo announced that it has
licensed channel Las Viet, four captivating
and engaging shows that promise to
delight the Vietnamese − Precious Pearl,

Helena’s Shadow, Brazil Avenue, and The Life
We Lead. Soon, the Pay-TV channel will debut
a slot with only telenovelas from Globo, and
the first title to be chosen was The Life We
Lead. The channel is targeted toward female
audiences, and all the Brazilian shows will be
dubbed in Vietnamese.
MYANMAR
Television is one of the most prevalent
forms of media consumption in Myanmar,
and there are 12 local FTA TV channels.
TV in Myanmar is predominantly FTA. On the
FTA channels, a visible percentage of
programming hours – roughly 35 to 40% –
are international programmes across both
weekdays and weekends, according to a
report by Venture Consulting. Dramas
(particularly Korean) predominate international
content while live entertainment comprises the
bulk of local content on FTA, adds the report.
The pay-TV industry, though available in most
parts of Myanmar, has only two operators –
Forever (delivered via DTT) and SkyNet (delivered
via DTH) – with low subscriber counts, and
carrying mostly international channels.
Telenor (Norway) and Ooredoo (Qatar) are
the first international mobile operators in
Myanmar, after winning a highly-contested
auction of mobile licenses. According to the
Financial Times, these are the first major
public contracts given to international
companies outside the natural resources
sector and will liberalise a communications
network that was previously tightly-controlled.
In the past, the military which was in power
since 1962, imposed bans on permits for
satellite dishes. From 1993 to 2001, the
only satellite dishes legally used were those
by hotels and businesses. A new ban on licences
came into force in 2005 but was lifted in 2011.
Venture Consulting reports that there are an
estimated 450, 000 unregistered satellite dishes
across the country.
Piracy remains a significant threat to legal
pay-TV operators in Myanmar. Currently, there
is no law against pay-TV piracy, and while
specific law exists to combat the production
and distribution of illegal VCDs and DVDs,
its enforcement is weak.
Following the huge success of Myanmar’s first
Satellite Forum held on November 2014, the
Myanmar government has outlined plans to
launch its own satellite within five years with
“an open, fair and transparent tendering
process”. The debate will also be continued
at next year’s Myanmar Satellite Forum, set to
take place on 18 November 2015 alongside
Communicast 2015 at Myanmar Event Park,
Yangon. Myanmar’s first Satellite Forum
attracted
overwhelming
support
from
international satellite operators, manufacturers
and launch providers.

In October 2014, Joko Widodo was inaugurated
the seventh President of the country, marking
his ninth year in politics. Widodo, also known
as “Jokowi”, came to politics in 2005 as the
16th Mayor of Surakarta. In 2012, he went
on to serve as Governor of Jakarta for two
years and was then named president-elect in
July 2014. Jokowi, known as “the people’s
president” – plans to offer free health care
and 12 years of schooling to every Indonesian.
Although many didn’t share the optimism of the
nation, Indonesia’s president was determined
to move together to work.
Sentiment on the country’s media equities
remains robust, although year-to-date gains
have started to moderate. Investors are selling
down shares due to macroeconomic concerns
and related impact on Indonesia’s advertising
market.
PAY-TV IN INDONESIA
According
to
research
reported
by
PricewaterhouseCoopers
(PWC),
pay-TV
growth in Indonesia is the slowest among
Asian countries, growing only 2 percentage
points per year. Still, pay-TV subscribers
are optimistic about the annual growth of
subscribers. In fact, total pay-TV subscribers
have also increased tremendously – from

900,000 subscribers in 2009 to an estimated
2.3 million in 2012, according to Media
Partners Asia (MPA). According to The Jakarta
Post, subscribers will continue to rise to an
estimated 8.7 million by 2020. Additionally,
MPA’s report, Asia Pacific Pay-TV & Broadband
Markets 2012, suggests that Indonesia
accounts for the largest proportion of pay-TV
growth in Southeast Asia, contribution 5% to
net additions.
In just the past year, Indonesia has sealed
multiple deals with pay channels:
• January: NHK World TV commenced
broadcasting through satellite operators,
bringing to viewers Japanese programmes.
• June: Celestial Movies and KIX launched on
K-Vision, a newly-launched pay-TV platform
in Indonesia.
• December: Celestial Movies launched on
NexMedia and Matrix TV. Additionally,
Matrix TV is also carrying KIX and Thrill.
FREE-TO-AIR CHANNELS
The free-to-air (FTA) channels in Indonesia have
been revamped with several key partnerships
that were announced in the year.
In May last year, three of Media Nusantara
Citra Group’s (MNC) FTA broadcasted Window
on Australia – Australian television content by
Australia Network – for a month. Australian
news had its own three-minute daily feature
on MNC’s breakfast, midday and afternoon
bulletins with special features. The initiative
reached a significant number of Indonesians in
their own language on the channels.
Besides collaborating and forging friendship
with its neighbouring country, Viacom
International Media Networks (VIMN) Asia
announced the expansion of MTV in Indonesia
with FORTE, a member of Karsa Group and a
marketing and sales distribution partner for
MTV in Indonesia.
Since 1 November 2014, MTV expanded its
existing reach in the country to an estimated
12 million households via four local FTA
TV partners across five cities in – Jakarta,
Banding, Surabaya, Banjarmasin and Makassar.
The next phase planned for early this year will
expand MTV’s presence via additional local FTA
TV partners in other cities.
Under the campaign of 1000% YOUTH, the
revamp of MTV in Indonesia included original
programming such as MTV World Stage and
MTV Europe Music Awards. They will also
be engaging youth in local promotions and
social engagement via MTV’s localised social
channels and website.
DTH SERVICES
In April 2014, Asia Satellite Telecommunications
Company Limited (AsiaSat) and PT. Digital
Media announced the launch of VIVA+, a brand
new prepaid direct-to-home (DTH) satellite

service utilising multiple Ku-band transponders
on AsiaSAT 5 at 100.5 degrees East to serve
the fast growing Indonesian pay DTH market.
VIVA+ has served Indonesian households by
bringing the World Cup 2014 to pay-TV viewers.
This was made possible with the installation of
ViBE VS7000 multi-screen video system by
Thomson Video Networks. In the same month,
the broadcaster launched Ultimate World Cup
TV, allowing fans to enjoy 64 main games on
nine Ultimate World Cup channels, two of which
were in HD.
In May 2014, the Indonesia prepaid DTH
satellite service deployed Newtec equipment
to deliver all of its content.
The technology partner to VIVA+ parent
company PT Digital Media Asia allows DTH
operators to either save money on space
capacity, lower programming cost or simply
increase service availability.

Japanese television is a massive industry that
has become a focal point in Japanese culture.
Pop culture and worldwide interest in Japanese
productions often stems from Japanese
television with more than 95% of citizens
having used the medium daily since 1985, with
a steady decrease in the amount of time spent
reading the newspaper in that same time (NHK
Opinion Research, 2000).
Japan’s major TV networks include Nippon
Television Network Corporation (NTV), Tokyo
Broadcasting Systems (TBS), Fuji Television
Network, TV Asahi Corporation, TV Tokyo
Corporation, Japan Broadcasting Corporation
(NHK), Asahi Broadcasting Corporation (ABC)
and Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation (YTV).
According to Buddecomm, Japan claimed
one of the world’s leading mobile telephone
markets as well as to have developed one of
the most advanced broadband environments
in the world. It is the third largest broadband
market in the world after the U.S. and China.
With the continued strong uptake of FttH
services, it is accompanied by an ongoing
convergence between fixed-line and mobile
communications broadcasting.

highlights that TV subscription is expected to
retain the largest share of consumer spending

at Iskandar Malaysia, in the state of Johor,
the RM550 million state-of-the art facility is
set to position Malaysia as the regional hub
for film and television production.
Completed in December 2013, PIMS already
generated great interest from international
film and television producers. In April 2014,
PIMS inked a deal with independent American
multimedia production and distribution company,
The Weinstein Company, to shoot the upcoming
television series, Marco Polo at its facility.
In August 2014, Astro Productions Sdn Bhd
(APSB) and Iskandar Malaysia Studios Sdn
Bhd (IMS) announced a collaboration to offer
world-class integrated television content
production services at PIMS.
Under the five-year agreement, IMS appointed
APSB as the exclusive provider of equipment
and services for production of television content
at its two 12,000 sq. ft. High Definition (HD)
television studios.
To nurture the next generation of production
crew, the Astro Broadcast Traineeship
programme will be extended to the Johor region.
The 10-month programme which is certified by
Australia’s Technical and Further Education
organisation, offers trainees 9 skill-based
modules with over 500 hours of field work in
studio and outdoor-broadcast events.
INTERNATIONAL SIGNING
Besides gearing towards the growth and
development of the creative content industry,
Malaysia has made agreements with industry
players all over the world.
In May 2014, Tarantella Pictures, a Malaysian
entertainment film company for TV programmes
and feature films in Southeast Asia, signed a
joint venture agreement with the U.S.-based
Medient Studios. The five-year deal is set to
jointly develop, finance, produce and distribute
content for China and the Far East Asian
markets. Tarantella together with Medient
will aim at producing Pan Asian international
quality feature films for worldwide distribution
both in Malaysia and at Medient’s new production
facility in Effingham Country, Georgia.
In the same month, Malaysia’s Primeworks
Studios and Japan’s TV Man Union announced
two documentary co-production projects
between Malaysia and Japan.
In September 2014, Primeworks Studios
announced more co-productions with Japan.

The Philippines’ more than 7,000 islands,
with three major island groups, population of
over 96 million, and a TV penetration of
75.3% are evidence for a good business case
for the pay-TV industry, especially direct-tohome (DTH) Satellite services and Cable TV
broadcast services. However, the current
TV statistics fall short of expectations of how
the landscape should be. In fact, cable TV
penetration is actually just 15% – far off from
South Korea’s 98% and Hong Kong’s 96%.
Digital TV Research forecasted that total
penetration of pay-TV services in the Philippines
will only reach 23% by 2016. According to the
research, while pay-TV revenues are expected
to double between the period of 2012 to 2018,
Philippines will only have a digital transmission
penetration rate of 34% by the end of
2018 – one of the lowest within the region.
One of the reasons is that over 28% of
Philippines’ population continues to live in
and below the poverty line. Cable TV package
30 | tva plus ANNUAL GUIDE 2015/2016

rates are still considered too high for the poor
even though cable broadcasters are already
competing on cost. As a result, the majority
of the TV households in the Philippines are still
tuned in to free-to-air (FTA) channels, which
include the “Big Three”: ABS-CBN Corporation,
GMA Network and Associated Broadcasting
Company or also known as TV5.
In December 2014, TV5 embarked on a
partnership with Brand New Media to launch
Multi-Channel Internet TV Network in Philippines.
Named 4ME, the brand new media platform –
featuring original content – will go live this year.
FTA CHANNELS
With more than 80% of Filipinos tuned in to
FTA channels, it is understood that the three
reigning FTA broadcasters are constantly in a
ratings war. According to a recently collated
data by Kantar Media Philippines, ABS-CBN
capped off 2014 as the most watched TV
network across urban and rural households in
the country. The data for the full year of 2014
showed that ABS-CBN garnered a total day
average national audience share of 44%, or
ten points higher than GMA’s 34%. ABS-CBN,
meanwhile, remained supreme in the primetime
block as it hit an average audience share of 49%.
In the same data, 19 of ABS-CBN’s programmes
made to the list of Philippines’ top 20 programmes
of the year – including Honesto, Dyesebel, Ikaw
Lamang and also the local adaptation of the U.S.
format, The Voice with a 27.5% rating.
At present, these FTA channels are currently
undergoing digital terrestrial TV trials using the
Japanese ISDB-T standard. This is in line with
the global analogue switchover mandate. In May
2013, ABS-CBN through DTV Marketing Head,
Miguel Mercado announced that it would be
investing in digital terrestrial television and cable
TV to bring clear TV viewing.
Just last year, the Filipinos were awarded
the 2014 Asia-Pacific Child Rights Awards
for Television. The award – established by
the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, CASBAA
and UNICEF – recognises the efforts of
broadcasters and producers in pursing
high quality children’s television and better
coverage of children’s issues. Last year,
it honoured Front Row: Orphaned, a
documentary that highlighted the plight of
vulnerable children in Philippines, where
approximately 1.8 million children are
abandoned or neglected. The programme was
produced and broadcasted by GMA Network.
OTHER DEVELOPMENTS
Identified as a major content growth market
by activeTV Asia, the production house
announced the formation of a major production
centre out of Manila. Philippines’ local prodco,
Mandala Productions will provide the production
base the local logistics, manpower and
strategic support.

In May 2014, integrated casino resort
developer Melco Crown Resorts Corporation
announced collaboration with Dreamworks
Animation to develop the world’s first
DreamWorks-inspired “Edutainment” centre at
City of Dreams Manila.
Besides the development of a production
base and the partnership, several key launches
were also made in the past year:
• In March 2014, E! launched a six-episode
reality series featuring the Gutierrez family –
Philippines’ showbiz personalities.
• In April 2014, beIN SPORTS launched its
third channel on SkyCable, offering Filipinos
a line-up of football with extensive live
coverage of the leagues around the world.
• In June 2014, Celestial Tiger Entertainment
signed a carriage deal with Cignal TV,
Philippines’ DTH satellite provider, to carry
KIX HD and Thrill.
• In September 2014, Cartoon Network
extended its global animation talent search
to Philippines, casting a wide net to identify
writers, artists and studios that can develop
its next original series.
• In October 2014, the launch of CNN
Philippines was announced by a joint
partnership by Turner Broadcasting System
Asia-Pacific and Nine Media Corporation.
• In November 2014, Mezzo announced that
Mezzo Live HD will be available to Filipinos
after signing a deal.

According to CASBAA, the media industry
in Singapore is expected to grow by 25.8%
between 2010 to 2015 − reaching a value of
about 2.3 billion in 2015. MediaCorp remains
the sole provider of Singapore’s free-to-air
(FTA) content, offering seven channels.
StarHub (Cable TV) and SingTel (IPTV) are the
only two dominant pay-TV operators in the
country, regulated by the Media Development
Authority of Singapore (MDA). With MDA’s
cross-carrying channel rule in place, the two
operators have learnt to put their differences
aside in most issues.
PAY-TV IN SINGAPORE
In efforts to promote the local media scene,
StarHub has partnered MDA to produce the
‘Go Local Campaign’ where local productions
would be parked under. These productions
will be available on StarHub TV Anywhere as
well as StarHub Buddy app, making it easier
for Singaporeans to watch local movies and
dramas.
Besides offering local productions, StarHub TV
Anywhere also provides access to many other
content including NBCUniversal International
Television’s Diva, Syfy and also Universal
Channel. This was made possible because of
their partnership reinforcement which started
since 2008. Offering new and improved
interface, StarHub has also launched a new
set-top box in partnership with Samsung.
According to Asia Media Journal, the new
set-top boxes are meant to restrain from boxbased piracy.
StarHub – which is also a mobile service
provider in Singapore – has continued its
partnership with Tektronix Communications
where it was appointed to provide Radio
Access
Network

assurance for StarHub customers all year
round including Singapore’s National Day,
The Singapore Grand Prix – which took place in
September – and also upcoming Christmas and
New Year celebration.
Using the GeoSoft RAN probes, in combination
with Tektronix Communications’ Iris Session
Analyser (ISA) and touch pointTM customer care
solutions, StarHub will achieve a full-service,
end-to-end monitoring solution, to provide mobile
access and customer experience assurance.
GeoSoft RAN probes extract real-time, geolocated performance data, whilst ISA’s Call Trace
functionality monitors signalling from the device
all the way through the network.
Last year, MediaCorp announced the relaunch of
Toggle with new features and a new look. Toggle
is an over-the-top (OTT) service seeking to be
the country’s third pay-TV service, which offers
entertainment, information and news to viewers
online, on smart phones, tablets and Smart TVs.
Now, it has several channels including Toggle-itFirst – that enables viewers to watch MediaCorp
dramas ahead of the rest – and also Toggle
Prime which offers more content to subscribers
including 20 premium channels and over 20,000
on-demand titles. Free content is also available.
Besides the two, kids’ channel Toggle KidsZone
was also created to banish the worry of parents
as it filters content to children’s suitability.
In October 2014, Toggle signed a multi-year
SVOD licensing agreement with Disney which
included the first ABC Studios On Demand
offering in Singapore. In the agreement, Toggle
has added onto their service an array of
series from ABC Studios On Demand and movies
from Walt Disney Studios, including movies
from Pixar, Marvel and Disney. The movies from
classics like Dead Poet’s Society to Marvel hits
like Iron Man can be found at the subscription
video on demand service.
After announcing the launch of MiBox in
August last year, M1 Limited (M1) – another
telecommunication operator – has worked with
MediaCorp in August 2014 to allow subscribers
convenient access to Toggle Prime. MiBox is
an internet TV service that offers VOD
entertainment and educational titles, games,
e-books and apps. The service comes bundled
with an Android set-top box and a selection of
free dramas, variety shows and other content.
TRANSITION TO DIGITAL TELEVISION
In July 2014, M1 was appointed by MDA to
manage the Digital TV Assistance Scheme.
The scheme was initiated to target lowincome families in Singapore where it helped
households transit to digital television. Eligible
families not only received a DVB-T21 (Digital
Video Broadcasting – Second Generation
Terrestrial) set-top box but also an indoor antenna
and a complimentary installation service.

In October 2014, MDA officially launched
the Digital TV Assistance Scheme where
about 160,000 households are expected to
benefit from it, according to MDA’s Chief
Executive Officer. In their efforts to reach
out to low-income households, MDA has
worked with various agencies, such as the
Housing and Development Board (HDB),
Ministry of Social and Family Development,
Ministry of Health, People’s Association and
self-help groups.
MDA has also proposed stricter rules to the
two pay-TV operators to protect subscribers.
In efforts to provide more protection to
consumers, MDA has put in place new rules
due to the increase in package prices by
StarHub and SingTel. Feedback was sought
by the regulator to subscribers regarding
the rules and if ratified, it will provide more
power to TV viewers.
There are currently no satellite TV networks in
Singapore.
MEDIA HUBS IN SINGAPORE
The building of a media hub, Mediapolis @
one-north – which is slated to be completed
in 2020 – will house a media ecosystem of
soundstages with green screen capabilities,
digital production and broadcast studios,
as well as interactive digital media (IDM) and
R&D facilities.
In January 2014, Infinite Studios – which is an
anchor tenant at Mediapolis, officially opened
its studios at the media hub. The integrated
media entertainment company has played
host to Singapore’s first two soundstage
studios designed in consultation with
Hollywood based Raleigh Studios, one of
the world’s largest operator of soundstage
production facilities. One of the soundstage
included Australian kids’ TV show Hi-5.
In the same month, the award-winning
Sandcrawler Building officially opened in a
ceremony with the presence of Prime Minister
of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong, President of
Lucas film Kathleen Kennedy and filmmaker
George Lucas. The state-of-the-art building
is the regional headquarters for Lucas
film Singapore, The Walt Disney Company
(Southeast Asia) and ESPN Asia-Pacific. With
the world-class facility and the talent housed
within its walls, Lucas film Singapore will
continue the groundbreaking animation and
visual effects work that it is known for, including
supporting the upcoming Star Wars movies.
Besides the Mediapolis and the Sandcrawler
Building, Pacific Television Centre (PacTV)
– a Los Angeles-based independent global
transmission and production company – has
announced its upcoming PacTV Singapore Hub.
The three-part expansion will consist of a new
managed HD-SDI router located in Singapore,
expanded connectivity into and out of the area

SINGAPORE

This new Hub will be connected to various Asian
broadcasters including MediaCorp. With the
direct connection to MediaCorp, PacTV will be
able to offer a number of broadcast services
for its Australian and other international clients.

The past year has been an eventful one for
the South Korean entertainment industry.
Amid the rising popularity of Korean films and
TV shows overseas – Hallyu Wave, 2014 saw
an increasing number of local titles getting
sold and many for foreign remakes. The
extremely popular TV series My Love From
The Star will be remade in the U.S., while
thriller Hide and Seek will get a Chineselanguage remake. As more and more Korean
variety programmes get adaptations in the
U.S. and China, actor-turned-producer Daniel
Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii Five-O, Spiderman 2)
announced plans to buy Korean film and TV
formats, thus paving the way to a possible
growth of the Korean television industry.
FREE-TO-AIR (FTA)
South Korea has four main FTA broadcasters
comprises of Korean Broadcasting System
(KBS), Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation
(MBC), Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS)
and Education Broadcasting System (EBS) −
with EBS being the only education network.
All three general networks broadcast 24/7
while EBS broadcasts for 21-22 hours a day
– varying on the day. SBS is the country’s
only private broadcaster with both terrestrial
and cable TV platforms.
CABLE TV
This year marks the 20th anniversary of cable
TV in South Korea. When it was launched
back in 1995, audiences were thrilled at the
arrival of 24 new channels – each focused
on specific genre such as music, travel, food
and even religion. Five years later, South
Korea launched On Game Net, the world’s

SOUTH KOREA

IPTV
KT Corporation, SK Broadband and LG
Uplus are the three IPTV service providers
in South Korea. Back in 2012, just three
years after IPTV was introduced in South
Korea, the service providers forecasted
8 million subscribers by the end of 2014.
The market surpassed 8 million subscribers
in 2013 and was at 9 million as of
March 2014. The number now stands at more
than 10 million. The market produced revenue
was 29 billion from the three service providers
in 2012. A research and markets report
forecasted that the figure is likely to grow more
than 56 billion by 2016, a compound annual
rate growth of more than 18%. KT Corporation
is the largest IPTV provider with 5.48 million
subscribers followed by SK Broadband
with 2.5 million and LG with 2.02 million.
KEY DEVELOPMENTS
In April 2014, BBC Worldwide announced
deals with pay-TV operators Hyundai Media,
YTN and FTA TV operator, KBS. The deals
will carry natural history, factual and science
genre programmes to a combined 40 million
households in South Korea.
In July 2014, KBS and CCTV of China signed a
MoU to co-produce a documentary regarding
the Japanese invasion of Korea in the 16th
century. This documentary co-production
agreement focused on an event of historical
importance and is expected to strengthen
cooperative ties.
In August 2014, KBS and the Korean Ministry of
Science, ICT and Future Planning organised a
co-production documentary project titled 2014
Korea−ASEAN One Vision. The project was a
collaborative effort between the ten nations
of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations
(ASEAN) and KBS. It was to honour the 25th
anniversary of dialogue cooperation between
the Republic of Korea and ASEAN.
In October 2014, Screen Australia and the
Korean Film Council (KOFIC) signed a MoU
to enable co-productions of official films and
television programmes to be made by the two
countries.
In that same month, Turner Broadcasting
System Asia Pacific signed a volume deal with
FTA broadcaster, MBC, locking in content for
Oh!K, a new general entertainment channel.

In February 2015, KBS and internet-based
search engine, Daum Kakao signed a MoU to
produce a cross-platform drama, aiming at
both online and off-line audiences.
In March 2015, Arirang TV announced that
the channel will be airing in the UK by SKY,
a British telecommunications company and
Freesat, a FTA digital satellite television
company. It will be the first Korean broadcaster
included in the UK cable TV and broadcasts
are scheduled to begin within four months,
after related procedures are completed.

Taiwan has five terrestrial TV stations, namely
Taiwan Television (TTV), China Television
(CTV), Chinese Television System (CTS),
Formosa Television (FTV), and Public
Television Service (PTS); and about 98.7%
TV penetration. However, cable TV is
overwhelmingly preferred to terrestrial TV,
given the country’s mountainous terrain and
high-rises in urban areas, which contribute
to poor terrestrial signal reception.
In July 2012, the Taipei Times reported that
the first stage of the transition to digital
television broadcasting was completed,
with the nationwide phasing out of analogue
signals for terrestrial TV. The National
Communications Commission (NCC), Taiwan’s
broadcast services regulator, requested
that the companies provide at least one
to three hours of HD content per day in the
initial stage, added the report. Home viewers
will not be much affected as terrestrial
programming will still be delivered via cable TV
systems due to the long-standing “must carry”
rule. The five big Multiple System Operators
or MSOs – Kbro Company (kbro), China
Network Systems (CNS), Taiwan Broadband
Communications (TBC), Taiwan Fixed Network
(TFN) and Taiwan Optical Platform (TOP) –
until recently mostly still analogue, face a
2017 deadline for a shift to digital.
There are eight direct satellite broadcasting
service operators and 104 satellite
broadcasting programme suppliers in Taiwan
– 81 of which are domestic suppliers – in the

In January, BBC Worldwide and ELTA TV kicked
off 2015 by announcing a deal that will see
the largest volume of UK content available in
Taiwan. The deal includes channels, programme
sales and VOD for BBC’s factual, lifestyle,
light entertainment, news and current affairs
content across multiple platforms in Taiwan.
The announcement was made at a joint press
conference hosted by ELTA TV and BBC
Worldwide in Taipei. With this deal, four of
BBC’s channels – BBC World News HD,
BBC Knowledge HD, BBC Lifestyle and BBC
Entertainment will be available on Chunghwa
Telecom’s MOD IPTV service.
Taiwan Broadband Communications (TBC)
announced that it selected the E6000™
Converged Edge Router (CER) from ARRIS
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS) to ensure its
subscribers in Taiwan receive enhanced
broadband speeds and converged services.
Deployment of the ARRIS E6000 CER will
begin in November to deliver new levels of
density and cost-effectiveness in a simple, robust
integrated architecture. The ARRIS E6000 CER
will equip TBC to offer high-speed data services
of 1Gbps and beyond. The platform supports
converged data/video services, while also
positioning them strategically for the future of
DOCSIS 3.1.
“We are focused on offering a seamless and
compelling suite of media and communication
products to our customers today and tomorrow.
We chose the ARRIS E6000 CER for its
capability to deliver more services at faster
speeds while lowering costs per channel,”
said Thomas Ee, Chief Executive Officer, TBC.
“We are delighted to build on our 10-year
relationship with ARRIS, whom we trust to deliver
a high-performing and reliable service for our
customers.”

by Business Monitor International

In 2013, there were 22 million households in
Thailand and an estimated 98% of households
had television at homes. Prior to 2012, in
the absence of National Broadcasting and
Telecommunications Commission (NBTC)
there was a regulatory vacuum in the market.
Despite this void, several broadcast services
have emerged and evolved swiftly. Regional
cable operators and satellite players (FTA
and Pay) have rapidly expanded in the market
that is currently dominated by the state/
military controlled terrestrial television.
Thailand market showcases cross media
holding scenario from various verticals into
broadcasting industry.
PAY-TV
According to Business Monitor International
(BMI), TrueVisions, part of the True Group,
is Thailand’s largest pay-TV provider, with
1.6m subscribers at the end of Q2 2012.
However, its customer base has been in
steady decline due to competition. Cable Thai
Holding (CTH) made headlines when it won
the audio and visual broadcast rights for
three consecutive seasons of EPL football
(seasons 2013 to 2016) for a fee described
in press reports as totalling £202 million, the
highest in Asia, representing an increase of
432%, according to CASBAA.

ANALOGUE TERRESTRIAL
Analogue terrestrial television is currently
the traditional way of receiving television in
Thailand, however it has now largely been
supplanted by digital providers. There are 6
analogue channels – Channel 3, TV5, CH7,
Modernine TV, NBT and Thai PBS. Modernine
TV and Channel 3 are owned by MCOT. TV5 and
BBTV CH7 are owned by Royal Thai Army. NBT
and Thai PBS are fully government-owned.
Analogue
terrestrial
transmissions
were
scheduled to be switched off in phases as part
of the digital switchover, expected to be
completed in 2020.
DIGITAL TERRESTRIAL
In 2005, the Ministry of Information announced
their plan to digitalise nationwide free-to-air TV
broadcasts led by MCOT. Four types of licenses
are offered as followed − High-Def. channel
license, Standard-Def. channel license, News
channel license and Youth/Family channel
license. All the major operators and content
owners in the industry won the bid for new
licenses. According to the license condition,
DTTV services launched since April 2014. There
are a total of 48 digital broadcast channels.
SATELLITE TELEVISION
Thailand’s sole satellite television operator,
Thaicom launched the TrueVisions service in
1998. It currently holds exclusive rights from
the Thai government to offer satellite television
broadcasting services in the country through
the year 2017. The rights were extended to
2022 recently.
KEY DEVELOPMENTS
In August 2014, PlayBox Technology Asia Pacific
announced opening of new offices in Jakarta and
Thailand. The new offices will provide engineering
and training for new and existing customers.
In December 2014, Turner Broadcasting System
Asia Pacific announced that Toonami was
slated to launch in Thailand on January 2015
and will be seen in 11 million households as a
cable and satellite channel across the country.
Toonami will be broadcasted in Thai language
and will have a wide appeal to local viewers with
a programme line-up packed with high-octane,
top-rating animated series and movies.
In February 2015, CJ E&M announced that
it plans to invest in a Thai film, titled Cha-Lui:
Touching the Sky, through its partnership with
Transformation Films, Thailand’s major film
production company. CJ E&M will also take on the
role of distributing the movie in such countries
as China, Japan, Vietnam and Indonesia.
In April 2015, Turner Broadcasting System
Asia Pacific has partnered with Thai free-toair broadcaster Channel 3 to host a daily twohour programming block of POGO-branded
content from 30 March. The block offers
a mix of animated and live-action original
content from POGO.

In May 2015, it was announced that global
phenomenon Brazil Avenue is coming to
Thailand. The hit show, which is Globo’s
licensing record holder, has been licensed
to Media Plex, a cable channel with a profile
aimed at female audiences. It is the first time
for the channel to show a Globo telenovela.
Brazil Avenue will be dubbed into Thai and
is set to debut in the 5.30pm timeslot.
In July 2015, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.
and Thai pay TV operator CTH, along with HBO
Asia, announced the launch of DreamWorks
channel, a brand new kids and family program
service, in Thailand. This is the first country
in Asia to premiere the channel, which
DreamWorks and HBO are offering across
the region. CTH will make the programming
available for the first time in High Definition
(HD) and programming will be fully dubbed in
Thai as of 1 September.
DreamWorks programming will include its
signature original series All Hail King Julien,
starring the world’s biggest party animal from
the hugely successful Madagascar theatrical
films, and The Adventures of Puss in Boots,
featuring the sword-fighting feline fortunehunter made famous by the Shrek franchise.
Dragons: Race to the Edge, inspired by
the critically acclaimed How to Train Your
Dragon films, will further build out the
schedule in Q4 this year, with even more
original series expected to be added in
early 2016. Joining the award-winning lineup
will be many other established characters,
such as Casper the Friendly Ghost in his
adventure series Casper’s Scare School, and
the new original series Dinotrux, an actionpacked adventure series of prehistoric
proportions based on a series of awardwinning children’s books. The channel will also
present a daily morning preschool block,
DreamWorks
Junior,
featuring
all-new
productions of such favorites as Raa Raa The
Noisy Lion and Guess with Jess.
