  New Zealand to get invite for Champions League?
Posted by: Sathish - 02-18-2009, 04:16 PM - Forum: Sports Zone - No Replies

Wellington: The organisers of the Champions League may invite New Zealand's domestic Twenty20 champions to participate in the cash-rich event, a media report said here on Wednesday.

"New Zealand Cricket hasn't yet been invited to the tournament but it is understood chief executive Justin Vaughan is hopeful of getting the green light before New Zealand's domestic Twenty20 final on March 1," a report in the Dominion Post said.

The top-two domestic Twenty20 teams from India, Australia, South Africa and England and one team from Pakistan are due to figure in the tournament, scheduled for October.

The newspaper has also started speculation on which team stumper-batsman Brendon McCullum will play if his home side -- Otago -- qualifies.

"Otago are at the top of the competition points table and are a leading contender to claim the State twenty20 title and progress to India in October. McCullum's Indian Premier League team, the Kolkata Knight Riders, are also strong contenders to make the Champions League."

"If Otago and Kolkata both book spots in the coming months it will provide McCullum with three options, after he qualified to play for New South Wales when he played in the Australian domestic twenty20 final last month," the newspaper wrote.

"McCullum's situation isn't unique, with other New Zealand players Jacob Oram, Scott Styris, Daniel Vettori, Ross Taylor, Kyle Mills and Jesse Ryder also facing the possibility of being torn between New Zealand and IPL teams."

The newspaper also claimed that the issue did figure in New Zealand Cricket's discussions in Christchurch on Monday "but it was decided not to make a firm call on the matter, or at least release their thoughts publicly, until the possible headache did actually arise."

Otago chief Ross Dykes also chose not to dwell on the issue unless they see an invitation from the organisers.

"It is a matter of crossing that bridge if we come to it. We didn't want to go around in circles discussing something which might not eventuate," he said.

  Carriage, content flexbility for FM in offing
Posted by: Sathish - 02-18-2009, 02:35 PM - Forum: Cable TV and FM Radio Services - No Replies

MUMBAI: Following the success of the FM Phase II policy for expansion of FM radio services through private operators, the government is moving towards giving further flexibility to the operators with respect to carriage and content, and incentivising their extension to the state of the north eastern region, Jammu and Kashmir and island territories, I&B secretary Sushma Singh has said.

Speaking at the 10th edition of Ficci Frames in Mumbai, Singh said that the government was in the process of amending the FM Phase II policy for the launch of FM Phase III in about 275 cities with as many as 790 channels. The government has also allowed political advertisements on FM radio with a view to mitigating the effects of falling advertising spend due to the economic slowdown, she added.

"We are also trying to resolve the issues with respect to music royalties. We are hopeful that these initiatives would enhance the growth rate further," Singh said, referring to the ongoing tussle between the FM radio players and the music industry over royalty payments.

Earlier, the minister released the Ficci-KPMG Report 2009 on the Indian Entertainment Industry and the FICCI-Amarchand Mangaldas Entertainment Lawbook.

The inaugural session of Ficci Frames 2009 was also addressed by Intel Corporation Vice President, Legal & Corporate Affairs & Director, Global Public Policy Donald M Whiteside who is leading a US delegation to the convention on behalf of the institutional partner US India Business Council (USIBC). Special addresses were given by Ficci Entertainment Committee chairman Yash Chopra; Ficci Entertainment Committee Kunal Dasgupta, and Ficci Convergence Committee chairman Amit Khanna.

On the occasion, Yash Chopra announced the appointment of noted film director, Karan Johar as co-Chairman of the Ficci Entertainment Committee.

Commenting on the tie-up, Viacom 18 Media Group CEO Haresh Chawla says: "With MTV, Nick and Vh1 being a part of TheOneAlliance bouquet as pay channels, we've enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with TheOneAlliance over the last few years. With the addition of Colors, we expect to strengthen this partnership even further."

The management says that the channel will be priced at Rs 21.40 a la carte for non-CAS areas. The bouquet price will be finalised over the next fortnight.

Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific India senior VP and GM Rahul Johri opines: "The addition of Colors to our existing portfolio is a reflection of MSM Discovery's robust distribution network and distinct competitive advantage."

Colors CEO Rajesh Kamat adds: "We are happy to partner with TheOneAlliance Bouquet as we embark on our next phase of growth, hereon. With this partnership, a critical part of Colors' business plan has been put in place."

"With the spotlight on the hugely successful IPL, the coveted acquisition of the New Zealand Cricket and other mega properties, this exciting collaboration between the Viacom18 channels sees 'TheOneAlliance' creating waves as a formidable bouquet," said Multi Screen Media Pvt. Ltd COO N P Singh.

Adds Viacom18 senior VP president –network development Sanjev Hiremath: "We are happy to renew our association of 5 years with MSM-D and to strengthen 'TheOneAlliance' brand with the inclusion of Colors.

  ICCI Frames: Reliance Entertainment to launch 4 TV channels
Posted by: Sathish - 02-18-2009, 12:30 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

Anil Ambani promoted Reliance Entertainment will not put its ambitious broadcasting foray on the backburner, even though the media and entertainment sector is hit hard by the global economic meltdown.

"Yes, we will launch the channels later this year. Our plans have not been deferred because of the current economic situation. We propose to launch four new TV channels very soon." Amit Khanna, chairman, Reliance Entertainment, said to Televisionpoint.com at the annual FICCI Frames conference in Mumbai.

Earlier, the company planned to launch and operate a bouquet of 20 channels under two new entities - Reliance Big TV Entertainment and Reliance Big TV News. However, the number of channels from the bouquet has reduced to only 4 from 20.

Reliance Entertainment will launch a Hindi general entertainment channel and three regional movie channels by the end of this fiscal year. The company may also consider acquiring sick broadcasters as most of them are in deep financial trouble.

Televisionpoint.com first reported in April last year that Reliance Entertainment's news broadcasting company will launch four channels, two general news and two business news, one each in Hindi and English in both genres.

The non-news broadcasting company was planning to launch music and movie channels, five general entertainment channels, and dedicated channels focused on children and lifestyle.

In 2008, George Soros, a leading investor, has invested Rs 395 crore for a 3 per cent stake in Reliance Entertainment, giving the valuation of the company at Rs 13,035 crore. Reliance ADAG, through several affiliates and group companies, holds substantial equity stakes in several media and entertainment firms.

  Big TV DTH deal: BCCI asks Sony to pay Rs 137 crore
Posted by: Sathish - 02-18-2009, 12:28 PM - Forum: Independent TV (Reliance Digital TV) - No Replies

The DTH sponsorship rights of Indian Premier League (IPL) is heading for a massive controversy, even before the advent of its second season. Faced with the prospect of a Rs 137-crore loss on account of the on-ground deal with Big TV being called off, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has demanded compensation from Sony Entertainment Television (SET), which holds the rights to broadcast the IPL.

BCCI has asked Sony to convert Bharti Airtel's exclusive on-air Rs 30 crore deal as a presenting sponsor to a consolidated ground and on-air deal. Sony officials are now under pressure to either ensure Airtel also comes on board as IPL's on-ground sponsor or pay IPL Rs 137 crore for the damage that IPL has suffered.

Sony had earlier inked an exclusive Rs 30 crore on-air deal with Bharti Airtel as a presenting sponsor for DTH broadcasts. Big TV, which had picked up ground rights sponsorship, had objected to the Sony-Bharti deal and later terminated the deal. Big TV wanted to be the presenting sponsor for DTH broadcasts as well.

BCCI is blaming Sony for this turn of events. The board has told Sony that it may terminate the broadcaster's IPL rights if the money is not paid up. This is because BCCI feels that it was after Sony's deal with Airtel that Reliance-ADAG walked out of the IPL deal.

Sony, in turn, has opened talks with Bharti Airtel for both on-air and on-ground sponsorship for a consolidated amount of Rs 70 crore. This number is not comparable to Rs 137 crore as the latter figure is for a period of four years.

Sources in Bharti Airtel say that they are not agreeable to the deal and would pick up both options only if the price is attractive. This latest development now places both Sony and BCCI on a sticky wicket on the issue of sponsorships.

All this casts a doubt on whether or not the IPL would be on any MSM India channel this year, a loss that Kunal Dasgupta, CEO, MSM India, said was not quantifiable. Speaking on the sidelines of the FICCI Frames 2009, Dasgupta said that the current market situation had taken a deep hit on IPL, and sponsors didn't have the right kind of monies to invest in the property.
