Sky 3D to close
Sky UK is closing its dedicated 3D channel from June 9th, leaving viewers wanting 3D content having to download movies and programming via Sky鈥檚 on-demand service.
Closing the channel is expected to help create extra satellite bandwidth for Sky鈥檚 planned 4K service.
Sky鈥檚 brand director of TV Products, Luke Bradley-Jones explained: 鈥淔rom June, Sky 3D is going fully on demand. From the latest 3D movie premieres like Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men Days of Future Past and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, to the very best in natural history with documentaries like Natural History Museum Alive, it will all be ready and waiting for our customers to view whenever it suits them.鈥
Sky launched its dedicated 3D channel back in 2010, along with Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia. However, for Sky鈥檚 UK football fans the writing has been on the wall since the start of the 2014-15 season when Sky鈥檚 regular 3D football coverage became 鈥渕ore selective鈥. In July last year Sky changed its 3D broadcasting hours to an evening only service (7pm-1am) on Monday-Thursday, and all-day on weekends.
US sports network ESPN announced the end of its dedicated 3D channel in June 2013.
Sky鈥檚 new 鈥榦n demand鈥 3D service depends on Sky鈥檚 customers having a broadband connection. Sky UK is continuing to promote its 鈥済round breaking鈥 3D service on its web-site.

8K TV will be the limit
NHK Executive Research Engineer Masayuki Sugawara, from NHK鈥檚 Science amp; Technology Research Laboratories, has stated that NHK would start experimental transmissions of 8K/Super HiVision (7680 x 4320 pixels) and which would be 鈥渦ltimate television鈥.
Sugawara, as reported by Large Display Monitor鈥檚 Chris Chinnock, in a response to a question from an audience member as to whether something bigger and better might follow on from 8K, said 鈥淣o, it鈥檚 really the ultimate, there won鈥檛 be [anything] beyond that.鈥
The 4K/8K UHDTV broadcast roadmap laid out by the Japanese government and the Next Generation Television amp; Broadcasting Promotion Forum (NexTV-F) includes conducting 8K test broadcasting via satellite in 2016, leading to commercial broadcasting services starting in 2018.The UHD standardisation process has been underway at the Association of Radio Industries and Businesses (ARIB), in cooperation with the Telecommunications Council, Japan.
There will be 8K test transmissions next year from the Rio Olympics, and the 2018 World Cup from Russia, and all ahead of 2020 Tokyo Olympics by which time full-scale transmissions will be on air.

France T茅l茅visions gets new chief
French media regulator the CSA has named the current executive director of Orange France, Delphine Ernotte-Cunci, as the new president of public broadcaster France T茅l茅visions, replacing R茅my Pflimlin when his current term ends.
Ernotte-Cunci, 48, who will take up her new role on August 22 and will serve for a five-year term, is the first woman to take the helm at the pubcaster.
In its note on the decision to appoint her, the CSA highlighted her 鈥渟olid management skills鈥, her 鈥渟trong attachment to public service鈥 and her awareness of changing video consumption habits.
Ernotte-Cunci beat off competition from a shortlist of seven candidates drawn from an initially much wider field of applicants. In the final stage of the process, the CSA chose her over Pascal Jos猫phe, the founder of International M茅dia Consultants Associ茅s (IMCA) and a former head of TF1.
Orange CEO St茅phane Richard has said he will take direct responsibility for Orange France to ensure management continuity and guarantee the implementation of the group鈥檚 Essentials2020 strategic plan.
鈥淚 warmly congratulate Delphine for her appointment at the head of France T茅l茅visions; a decision that clearly underlines her considerable managerial and personal qualities,鈥 said Richard.
鈥淚n particular, Delphine has consolidated the Group鈥檚 leadership position on the French market through the successful deployment of very high-speed fixed and mobile networks 鈥 fiber and 4G 鈥, through the launch of investment programmes that are accelerating today. We wish her all the best in her new role,鈥 he said.

Conservative Party won #8217;t privatise Channel 4
The Conservative Party won #8217;t privatise Channel 4 if it wins the general election, former culture, communications and creative industries minister Ed Vaizey has told The Media Show on BBC Radio 4. Privatisation had been rumoured to be under discussion by the Conservative Party, although the rumours were denied by both Vaizey and former culture secretary Sajid Javid.
Channel 4 oppose privatisation and remain firmly of the view that their publicly owned, not-for-profit status is the most effective means of ensuring that Channel 4 can continue to play the public service role it was originally created for.

BBC Three on Air until 2016
Plans to make BBC Three an online-only channel have been delayed until to next year, according to Damian Kavanagh, the channel鈥檚 controller.
The BBC announced last year the channel would go online only in a bid to save money. It was intended to close this autumn, however BBC bosses are still awaiting the results of a public value test carried out by the BBC Trust which is not expected to be published until June leaving them little time to carry out the move.
Kavanagh said: 鈥淥nce we have the Trust鈥檚 final decision, we鈥檒l start doing more online and in social, building up to a move online-only after Christmas.鈥
He added: 鈥 You simply can鈥檛 turn around something as ground-breaking as this overnight. We won鈥檛 be rushed. We will do what鈥檚 right for our fans, not to satisfy deadlines鈥.

Satellite dishes banned in Turkmenistan
The government of Turkmenistan has banned all satellite dishes, and is in the process of 鈥渄emolishing鈥 existing satellite installations. The intention is to fully block access to international TV and radio signals coming into the country via satellite.
In an official statement the government is demanding all dishes to be removed from apartments of private properties and has fully 鈥減rohibited鈥 their use.
According to a report in The Times of Central Asia, the decision 鈥渋s aimed at fully blocking access of the population of Turkmenistan to hundreds of independent international media outlets which are currently accessible in the country only through satellite dishes, including all leading international news channels in different languages. The main target of this campaign is Radio Azatlyq, the Turkmen-language service of Radio Liberty/Free Europe.
It is the only independent source of information about Turkmenistan and the world in the Turkmen language and is widely listened to in the country.鈥
The press report states that almost every home in the nation has a dish, legally acquired over the past 20 years of satellite broadcasting.

Ofcom considering deregulation of TV
Ofcom is contemplating a deregulation of the television and telecoms industry to reflect shifts in how people watch, read and talk over the past decade.
In her first interview since taking over as head of the UK media regulator, Sharon White said Ofcom needed to examine how competition from US Internet giants such as YouTube and Facebook were changing the British media and telecoms markets.
鈥淥ne of the big issues in my in-tray is going to be the Internet鈥 she said. 鈥淸The regulatory response] is something we are going to have to look closely at.
鈥淲e will certainly look at whether there is scope for a lighter approach given the entry of newer players and technology that we wouldn鈥檛 have dreamt of a few years ago.鈥
White has joined Ofcom as it begins its first review of the communications market for a decade, to take into account the growing power of Internet services.
Ofcom will assesswhether market definitions, and regulations, need to be redrawn in the TV and telecoms sectors given BT鈥檚 push into sports broadcasting and Sky鈥檚 strong position in broadband. BT鈥檚 ownership of Openreach, the national fixed line network, will also be reviewed, White confirmed.
鈥淐onvergence has started to happen in a very rapid timeframe, be it fixed and mobile [telecoms] or the blurring [of] the distinctions between the traditional telco and traditional media company,鈥 White said. 鈥淸We will] see if there are ways to promote competition. Are there areas we can deregulate? But with the consumer at the centre of it all.鈥
White said Ofcom could also consider the pay-TV market, which had also changed dramatically over the past decade with the arrival of video streaming services such as Netflix.
鈥淭he question of whether the pay-TV world needs a fundamental rethink is an issue I will come to, probably after the [Premier League] investigation,鈥 she said, referring to work by the regulator鈥檚 response to Virgin Media鈥檚 request to investigate the spiralling cost of football rights.
Ofcom said after the interview: 鈥淚f pay-TV issues come up as part of our digital communications review then we will consider them but we are not planning a fundamental review of pay-TV鈥.
One area that Ofcom is not seeking extra powers over is the BBC, White said, responding to chancellor George Osborne鈥檚 suggestion this week that the regulator could assume the work of the BBC Trust.

DAB Switchover date announced in Norway
It has been confirmed today that Norway will switch off FM radio in 2017, the first country in the world to shut off analogue for all major radio stations. The switchover will begin in January 2017 and will be implemented region by region, ending in December 2017 in two northern regions.
Norway launched DAB in 1995 at the same time as the UK and the digital radio take up and coverage statistics in Norway track slightly ahead of the UK .
In Norway DAB coverage is 99.5% and 56% of radio listeners use digital radio every day. In the UK BBC national coverage will reach 97% by the end of this year and 44% of listeners listen via a digital platform each day. In Norway 55% of households have DAB radios, while in the UK 48% of households have access to at least one DAB radio. In Norway, 20% of private cars have DAB digital radio #8211; in the UK this is currently estimated to be around 15%. In Norway 29% of new cars have digital radio fitted as standard, while in the UK 61% of new cars have digital radio fitted as standard.
The announcement from Norway comes at a time when Denmark, Sweden , Switzerland and German are reviewing the time frame for development of digital radio and a potential switchover. In the UK the Government and broadcasters are planning for a digital future for radio and investing in expanding National and Local DAB coverage towards FM equivalence and launching new digital radio stations. Government has established switchover listening criteria of 50% and will review the decision and timeframe for a future UK radio switchover when that is achieved 鈥 which is expected in the next 2 years.
Welcoming the news, Ford Ennals, CEO of Digital Radio UK says: 鈥淣orway was the first country to switchover to digital TV and we expect their announcement of a 2017 radio switchover to signal the start of a transition to digital radio across a number of European markets. In the UK the Government believes the future of radio is digital, and we are making good progress on achieving the agreed switchover coverage and listening criteria.鈥
Patrick Hannon, President of WorldDMB, says: 鈥淭his announcement is a key milestone in the development of digital radio. It sends a clear signal to Europe and the rest of the world that digital radio is the platform of the future. Norway鈥檚 success has been based on a clear plan and strong commitment from broadcasters, policy makers and manufacturers.鈥
Paul Smith, Pure鈥檚 General Manager, says: 鈥淎s one of the original digital radio pioneers, this announcement is music to our ears and gives clarity to consumers and the radio industry in Norway allowing us to push ahead our digital radio plans with certainty. We look forward to working closely with radio industry stakeholders in Norway to ensure a smooth transition by continuing to stimulate the market with new and innovative products.鈥
