Paris (euro adhoc) - Motion Network Holding (MNH) heads South.

MNH and TV4YOU will be partners for Southern Europe: Spain and Portugal.  TV4YOU is ready to operate as MNH representative in the Iberian Peninsula.  It  already represents Chello media, MGM, Al   Jazeera  international,  Vodafone,  Cabovisao, Portugal telecom. Thanks to this wide experience, TV4YOU  is  fully  operational and ready to go.

Ninety-eight percent of Spanish households have a television  set,   86%  have  a color receiver (in contrast, 76% have a  radio).  On   average,  Spaniards  watch about three and a half hours of television a day, mostly in  the  afternoon  and late evening hours. Five national channels now serve  a  Spanish  population  of 39.4 million and a television audience of 29.2 million. Of these five, two, TVE- I and TVE-2 are state-owned, financed by subsidy and advertising. Antena -3  and Telecinco are private channels, financed by advertising  ;  Canal+  is  private, financed by subscription.    3   million  TV  households  were  connected  with  1 million subscribing to cable television in the year 2000. In  the  1990s,  TVE's subsidy has not helped it overcome the growing debt of the company, despite   its stable position in  the  market.  In  contrast,  the  private   firms  have  been profitable.

Ninety-six percent of Portuguese households  have  a  television.  In Portugal, satellite is only proposed as a substitute for cable in some rural region,  thus in comparison with cable the number of subscribers is very small. In the  fourth quarter of 2007 Portugal   had  1.96  million  subscribers  to  the  services  of subscription TV supported by cable distribution networks or  satellite  (DTH)  - around 2% more than the number recorded in the previous quarter. As of  the  end of December 2007, the total number of cabled households for all operators  stood at around four million,  63  thousand  more households  than  in  the  previous quarter, an increase of 1.6%. For the same period the number of  subscribers  to the cable television services, 1.49 million subscribers, grew by around  1%,  an addition of  20  thousand  customers.  Meanwhile,  year-on-year,  there  was   an increase of around 5%, representing the  addition  of  around  69 thousand  new subscribers.  At  the  end  of  2007,  Cable   television    service    subscribers represented around 27% of all Portuguese households. At the  end  of  2007,  the television distribution service using Direct To Home (DTH)  technology  had  476 thousand subscribers, 3.9% more than in the previous quarter and 9.3% more  than in the same quarter of 2006. In absolute terms, this translates to  18  thousand more subscribers during the quarter. The Telecine channels, the cinema  channels produced by joint venture Premium  TV,  are  actually  packaged  in  Brazil  and beamed to Portugal. This results often in an erratic picture quality and in   the fact that subtitles are  in  Brazilian  and  not  in  Portuguese. There  is  no Portuguese cinema channel.
