Director General of the NAO “National satellite company” (“Tricolor Tv”) Alexei Kholodov remembered all the key events for the company last year, He told about the plans for 2017 year and shared the forecasts of market development in the Russian pay-TV
- What are the preliminary results 2016 year for "Tricolor Tv"? - The growth of the subscriber base as a whole was at a slower pace, than in 2015 year, however our active subscriber base grew by 340 thousand., which is one of the best performance on the market. New subscribers we hooked 760 th. For us, it is crucial, that in the past year significantly increased database HD-subscribers: to top 2017 year there were already 8,5 million (more than 12 million households, connected to the platform "Tricolor Tv"), whereas in the beginning 2016 , there were 6,6 million. Nice to know, we have more than HD-subscribers, than many subscribers operators generally. Good performance in 2016 he was, and the growing number of subscribers, host of the program with the latest compression technology HEVC-today there are about 1,5 million. Daylight HEVC creates for us an opportunity to optimize the use of satellite capacity: From this point of view twice as effective HEVC, than MPEG-4, and four-fold compared to the MPEG-2. Literally at the end of 2016 , we launched "TNT HD"-perhaps, the first in Russia. "TNT HD" we broadcast in HEVC, so subscribers, receiving a signal from the compression of MPEG-2 or MPEG-4, can not see. But, Of course, we have maintained and TNT version of the standard quality. In the future we plan to add new channels, primarily in HEVC, This will allow more efficient use of satellite capacity. The more efficient use of the capacity of the operator, the greater the opportunities, and a strategic reserve, which will soon be felt and subscribers. We are sure, Ultra HD technology that will grow no slower, than HD, and for the ultra-high definition broadcast free capacity is an important aspect. I think, subscribers will also appreciate such a policy, because for them it is even more interesting channels and the development of the product line operator. - "Tricolor Tv" first Russian DTH operators started broadcasting in standard Ultra HD. What are the prospects of this service? - In 2016 year "Tricolor Tv" I began commercial broadcasting Ultra HD package, which included three TV channels. In 2017 year we plan to increase their number. Unfortunately, Russian air channels (included in the first and second multiplexes) is not broadcast in Ultra HD, but the water wears away the stone: broadcasting in HD, they started later, and some are just now preparing to launch its. While we do not disclose the number of subscribers to channels Ultra HD-absolute value compared to our subscriber base is small, but in terms of the rate of growth of subscriber base is the fastest growing package "Tricolor Tv". - Who do you call the subscriber? - Of people, having a contract with "National satellite company" and an active subscription to the service "Tricolor Tv" on a specific date. If allocate HD and UHD-subscribers, this internal division, which is determined by the ability of the receiving subscriber equipment to support one or the other format. - The growth of the satellite TV market in Russia virtually stopped. In the mobile sector, where saturation has been achieved several years ago, in 2016 year statements for the first time faced with the fall of the ruble revenue. Do you expect a similar scenario in the market of satellite TV? - It would be interesting to compare the cost of cell phones Russian and foreign households in relation to GDP per capita. Similar data on the market pay-TV show, that household spending to pay for pay-TV services in Russia is significantly lower, than in many world markets. And, in my opinion, Russia's Pay TV market does not give grounds to make such predictions. In addition, mobile and TV market is significantly different, so I would not have tied their tendencies. In the mobile communications market operates MNP service (transfer mobile numbers), which is also partly spurred competition and forced operators to cut prices. However, prior to the introduction of this service in a cellular shift from one operator to another required a minimum cost to the subscriber. In the pay-TV sector is technically almost impossible to connect the equipment one operator to another network, which hampers the flow of subscribers. And in the satellite TV to switch to another operator in most cases, you also need to reconfigure the antenna. This situation greatly reduces the risk of price wars, so, and the threat of falling ARPU. Also it should be noted, that mobile penetration in Russia has long exceeded 100%, while the penetration of all kinds of pay-TV in Russia is approximately 70%. Therefore, the horizon for the growth of the market is still large even without luring subscribers. And still need to take into account the shutdown of analog terrestrial television, to be held in 2018 year. This process can also lead to an increase in the subscriber base Pay TV. - Many telecommunications companies began international expansion, taking advantage of uniformity of services and global standardization. considering whether "Tricolor Tv" opportunity to work abroad, in particular, broadcasting in Russian-speaking audience? - No. "Tricolor Tv"-operator, which provides Pay TV in Russia and nowhere else. If you speculate in theory, foreign-run project extremely difficult process, This invasion of the markets with fundamentally different competitive environment. In addition, there is a question of rights clearance for broadcast outside Russia: from domestic channels, which broadcast sporting events, or foreign films, usually, no rights to display this content abroad. By 13 movie, which produces "Tricolor Tv", we could, probably, clear rights to foreign broadcasts, but the question of content relevance to foreign viewers, because their reality may differ materially. TV Market, Unlike communication market, rather it is local. In telecom possible with one and the same technology to run in two different countries provided solutions regulatory issues. On TV it does not work: in each country need to show and local channels, and localized content, and it does not control requirement, and market demand (including the Russian-speaking population). The result has different content, other rights, probably, and also other satellite. And no synergy practically not formed. - Most TV viewing is possible to have programs in their websites, and almost all the movies you can see for free in an online cinema. What in this situation can offer pay-TV operators, to increase or at least keep the subscriber base? - I think, to the fore here comes the question the user's convenience. We can buy milk from farmers, a bread-u pekarej, but still go to the supermarket. So it is here. Such content consumption substantially less convenient, than linear TV viewing: you need to get out of the application of one channel, find another application, run. Or even more difficult: find a movie, Now that you have looked. And people used to zapping-fast switching from channel to channel, eg, during commercials or mood. One channel, Of course, can not fully cover all the needs of a huge audience, her mood and preferences, so will always live aggregators and recommendation services. You can look at the issue more widely. Many people, and often regardless of their level of income, still resort to torrent, Downloading pirated content. The secret is simple: perfect for the person VoD-library is the one, where you can find absolutely any movie or TV show, without limitation and without having to switch from one service to another in search of the desired. Of course, Most legal services are inferior torrents in stock. The situation is similar with the archive program of a TV channel: it is limited, because the archive is only this particular TV channel. I'd venture, that at least until, until there is a linear TV viewing, will live such content aggregators and operators of Pay TV, as "Tricolor Tv". However, this situation must be taken into account for further development and integration of a linear model to look content with a nonlinear, develop multiplatform and recommendation services. - Broadcast a single channel Ultra HD standard requires the equivalent of a satellite transponder, while in the HD-through as a transponder bandwidth 36 MHz can be transmitted six TV channels. Obviously, that subscribers do not pay six times more for Ultra-HD-content. How do you in this regard sees the development of Ultra HD? - When broadcasting Ultra HD to MPEG 4 one TV channel really will require a transponder (and HD-format transponder can be placed in the six channels). But with HEVC compression in a single transponder is placed two or three UHD-channel (Three of our TV ultra-high definition just occupy one transponder), and HD-channels fit 12-13. And, as I already said, One of our long-term strategic objectives, the transition to broadcasting in HEVC, which will significantly reduce the amount of use of satellite capacity, freeing it to broadcast TV Ultra HD, as well as the, Perhaps, for other services. - Can you predict the timing of full transition "Tricolor Tv" broadcasting in HEVC? - In our experience,, on a complete change of equipment fleet takes five to seven years. Respectively, hardware MPEG-4, which we will begin to massively change in HEVC 2018 year, lasts about 2022-2023 years. - How many channels on the platform "Tricolor Tv" transmitted in standard definition, as well as in HD? - We have a total of nearly 50 channels in HD and about 200 SD-quality channel. - What capacity and on what spacecraft now rents the company? - In 2016 year we have increased the capacity of the rented four transponders with coverage of the European territory of the Russian Federation. Now "Tricolor Tv" uses 22 transponders on the satellites Eutelsat 36C ("Express?AMU1") and Eutelsat 36B in position 36 ° E. and 16 transponders on the spacecraft "Express AT1" at position 56 ° E. - In September 2016 year "Tricolor Tv" launched the service two-way satellite internet access via spacecraft Eutelsat 36C ("Express AMU1"). How many subscribers to connect it? - This service is fully up to our expectations. launch services, we understood, it is aimed at a narrow audience, this is not a story, which will attract more 12 million subscribers. During the first quarter of operation of satellite Internet service, we connect more 100 Subscribers. However, this requires a diversification of business, the more that the question "When you have satellite Internet will?" always ranked in the top-5 subscriber questions. While this is a joint service with Eutelsat: legally "Tricolor Tv" an agent Eutelsat. But if everything will continue to go as well, we do not exclude, that in the future in our relationship with Eutelsat's move to a model of the virtual operator (VNO). - Can we say, each broadcast service subscriber "Tricolor Tv" It is a potential user of satellite Internet access services? - No, this is not true. price "admission ticket" (including the cost of equipment and installation) and the average payment is about three times higher, than the cost of digital TV services "Tricolor Tv". Internet service is addressed to those, who can not wired and mobile Internet. Achieve success HughesNet network, to which the United States joined more 1 million subscribers, Russian reality is extremely difficult. First, Russia's population is almost two times less. Second, while the satellite and equipment, as global products, in both countries are the same, ie comparable costs for operators, income levels radically different. Internet Usage Fee $50 monthly rate for the United States, but in reality it is about Russian 3 th. Br, that much more, than people are used to pay for the connection or TV services. - From November 2016 year you launched online cinema "Tricolor TV Movie". Is cannibalization paying subscriber base is not afraid or is it a necessary step under pressure from OTT services? - In November, there was a rebirth of the resource "Tricolor TV Movie". Previously, he existed as a reference system, in which you can find information about movies, and now "Tricolor TV Movie"is a full-fledged online cinema. It presents movies AVoD model (monetized) and TVoD (Pay-per-view), in future, Perhaps, appears and the subscription model (eg, with monthly billing) or even packaging with satellite tariffs. As for OTT, seven years ago at the telecom conferences talked about, that voice services will soon be completely free, and will be charged only the data. But, as often happens with such predictions, they do not come true immediately, nor in a year, or two, or three, and began to appear skeptics, who declared, that voice services will continue to generate revenues to operators. However, they are processes such as a bulldozer, which moves slowly, but it is impossible to stop it. In my opinion, now many cellular subscribers choose a tariff plan based on the amount of data included: the number of voice minutes and SMS in a package the average user more than enough. With OTT History repeated: many predicted the rapid growth of such services, but this does not happen. I suppose, that one of the key drivers will be the change of OTT users generations, so, and the rate of OTT services users will be comparable to the growth rate of maturation of the current generation of young people, correction in a big way at the expense of the innovators of the older generations, are also switched to the new technology. Mass distribution of OTT inevitable, It is a logical continuation of the direction of development of the society, in which we live. But this development is not so much displacing, completely replacing one technology to another, as it penetrates largely. I mean hybrid technology. And if you can not stop the bulldozer, then you need to sit at the helm of it-this is the idea of a resource "Tricolor TV Movie". Although if the rejection of unlimited tariff plans for internet access services will continue to cover the cellular networks and fixed access, the OTT prospects can be a big question. Bereft of ideology over the top, it will simply be an analogue of IPTV services, limited network of one operator (Which one, Perhaps, it will not be tariff), and before the party will be a question: it is cheaper, to pay your carrier for internet traffic and OTT services to the content? - In December 2016 the company "Ntv-Plus" introduced an interactive (hybrid) prefix, which is also connected to a satellite dish and the Internet and allows in addition to linear TV viewing use OTT services. whether plans "Tricolor Tv" concluded a similar decision? - Our subscribers more 4,5 million consoles with Ethernet-port, which can be connected to the Internet. Technologically, we are supplier partners preparing for this for a long time, the only question features, to be connected to the Internet. Now we are finalizing the applications and 2017 year plan to release them to the market. And today is available to subscribers of the service PushVoD, which we launched at the end 2016 year and for which the subscriber did not need access to the Internet. It allows you to connect the receiver to a portable hard drive or flash-drive, which is injected daily for two films. After seven days the content overwrites, that is, each time the viewer has the option of 14 movies. Subscribers "Tricolor Tv" available 38 linear movie channels, 12 kïnozalov, and now 14 movies. In other words, at any time the subscriber may view 64 film! - What other plans does the company 2017 year? - Much has been said. In addition, in the coming year we intend to ten times increase the user base of satellite Internet services. Also, we will develop the delivery of TV signal on tablets and smartphones, and if now it is possible only within the household, in 2017 year we will reach beyond. We plan to overcome the mark of 10 HD-million subscribers. We will include new channels in the package Ultra HD, as well as adding HD-channels in HEVC-broadcasting.
