Todas las miradas en África

El Mercado de TV africano promete un gran futuro para servicios de VoD y OTT, en especial para quienes generan contenidos con un objetivo local.

Tras la expansión de Haymillian hacia el mercado africano, tenemos mucho interés en el futuro del panorama de la televisión del continente, especialmente en el campo del broadcasting sudafricano. Una investigación realizada por IDATE en junio de 2017, arrojó que el mercado sub-sahariano, del cual dice que es el mercado de TV de crecimiento más rápido del mundo, se expandirá un 30% para 2021. Según el informe, se espera que las bases de suscriptores de TV Paga lleguen casi a duplicarse y un creciente número de servicios OTT capitalizará en penetración en Internet incluso en los puntos más recónditos del continente.

Sit down with Irini Galani - one of the first members of team Haymillian Greece

A valuable member of the team, Irini is very quick and responsive. Even under great pressure she manages to stay extremely focused and diligent.

Client Corner Q&A with Insight TV

In this customer corner, we have a chat with Justin Steel, Global Channel Manager at INSIGHT TV, the Ultra HD channel of international broadcaster TV Entertainment Reality Network (TERN). Haymillian has helped the channel reach audiences across the globe since 2016 through the provision of multilingual dubbing and subtitling services.

Launched at MIPCOM 2015, Insight TV is in its third year of operations. Can you tell us how Insight TV came to life and why the focus on delivering content in UHD?

When INSIGHT TV launched, we knew we had to do something very different to what was already available to ensure we stood out.  This meant taking leadership for the type of content we commissioned and produced, and also how that content was created, which left one option, UHD HDR at 50fps. This was a huge challenge, but the results show that the company made absolutely the right decision. Three years later we’re at the forefront of this television revolution, making UHD HDR programmes that appeal to all demographics including Generation Z and Millennials.

According to the report, Pay-TV subscriber bases are expected to nearly double and a growing number of OTT services will capitalize on Internet penetration in even the most remote corners of the continent.
