No relaunch for CanalPlay

By Julian Clover

The chairman and CEO of Canal Plus Group has denied the French paycaster is planning a relaunch for CanalPlay.

Les Echos reported CanalPlay would be revamped in the spring as a 10-euro-a-month subscription video service for young people.

But Maxime Saada wrote on Twitter that while there was much within the article that was correct there would be no return for CanalPlay.

.@LesEchos Beaucoup de choses exactes dans cet article mais une chose inexacte et d’importance : il n’y aura pas de relance de @canalplay mais nombreuses idées à l’étude chez @canalplus dont une déjà évoquée par @Satellifax avant les fêtes https://t.co/nXIXI1fTw8

— Maxime Saada (@maxsaada) January 10, 2019

Canal has not been promoting its video service, instead concentrating its efforts on the newer MyCanal.

Appearing before the Senate Committee on Culture last June, Saada blamed a regulatory environment for preventing an exclusive deal with Netflix or Amazon that in turn had led to a collapse in subscriber numbers for CanalPlay from 800,000 to 200,000 over two years.

Saada also criticised the authority for previously preventing it from carrying exclusive content while paying taxes and employing thousands of people in France – while Netflix had no such burdens.

Spanish broadcasters face โ‚ฌ100m fines

By Chris Dziadul

Spain’s two leading broadcasters Atresmedia and Mediaset could each be fined up to €100 million for abusing their dominant market positions to the detriment of third parties.

According to El Economista, the regulator CNMC has told them they could be required to pay a sum of up to 10% of their sales in 2018.

However, industry sources believe the actual figures could be much lower, but still in the range €15-30 million each.

The only way to avoid the fines would be for Atresmedia and Mediaset to enter into a ‘conventional termination agreement’ that commits them to immediately cease these abusive practices. They in fact agreed to sign such an agreement a year ago but failed to do so.

Moreover, they have previously maintained that such commercial practices are common in the TV industry throughout the world.

The actions of Atresmedia and Mediaset relate to the contracts they have with advertisers and media agencies and have ben deemed by CNMC to be in violation of the Law on the Defence of Competition.

However, some of these contacts have since ben modified.

Both broadcasters have indicated they will appeal to the National Court should they be fined by the CNMC.

IMDb launches free US streaming video channel

By Julian Clover

IMDb, the Amazon-owned Movie and TV review site, is launching its own free-to-view streaming video channel.

Freedive will be available in the United States across laptop or personal computer and Amazon Fire TV devices.

The advertising-supported channel won’t be showing the latest content. A statement from IMDB mentions series Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor and Without a Trace as well as movie titles Awakenings, Foxcatcher, Memento, Monster, Run Lola Run, The Illusionist and The Last Samurai.

“Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch,” said Col Needham, Founder and CEO of IMDb. “With the launch of IMDb Freedive, they can now also watch full-length movies and TV shows on IMDb and all Amazon Fire TV devices for free. We will continue to enhance IMDb Freedive based on customer feedback and will soon make it available more widely, including on IMDb’s leading mobile apps.”

Freedive will take advantage of X-Ray, the Amazon video feature, which allows users to call up actor bios and background information from IMDb directly onscreen.
