Retailer BAS Group is failliet verklaard. Dit is het moederbedrijf van de winkelketens Dixons, MyCom en iCentre. Enkele weken geleden werd bekend dat BAS Group de rekeningen niet meer kon betalen.

Curator Jan Padberg heeft het personeel van de winkelketens die onder de BAS Group vallen van het faillissement op de hoogte gebracht. De curator stelt dat het een noodzakelijke stap was om BAS Group failliet te verklaren. Hierdoor wordt voorkomen dat schulden nog verder oplopen.

Dixons blijft voorlopig open

Ondanks dat de winkelketens Dixons, MyCom en iCentre failliet zijn, blijven de winkels gewoon open. De curator heeft goede hoop dat voor een deel van de activiteiten van BAS Group een doorstart mogelijk is. "U kunt daaraan bijdragen door uw werkzaamheden te blijven uitvoeren”, laat curator Padberg in een schrijven aan het personeel weten.

The Russian DTH platform Raduga TV, which was backed by Modern Times Group (MTG) and officially ceased operations at the end of last year, may now be operating in a different form.

Known as TeRus (Television in Russian), it can be received in Southern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa and offers viewers 19 TV channels, three of which are in HD, with the total number soon set to rise to 23-24.

Employing Ird*t* 2 encryption, TeRus can be viewed with a card that costs $20 to buy.

The European Commission has opened an investigation into the takeover of telco Base by Liberty Global’s Telenet.

Plans to acquire the third-largest mobile operator in Belgium from KPN at a cost of €1.35 billion were announced in April.

The Commission is concerned the acquisition would lead to a reduction in competition in the Belgian market.

Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, in charge of competition policy, commented: “Consumers increasingly depend on reliable and competitive telecoms services to keep in touch and to access information. We want to make sure that consumers in Belgium do not suffer higher prices and less choice as a result of this proposed takeover”.

Telenet does not operate its own mobile network; instead it has an MVNO arrangement with the Mobistar network.

The Commission has concerns that the transaction would remove an important competitive force and that the merged entity would have limited incentives to exercise significant competitive pressure on the two main remaining competitors in the retail mobile market (Proximus and Mobistar).

It’s also concerned the agreement would increase Telenet’s ability to sell its own fixed line services to Base customers.

Orange Digital Ventures is participating in the funding of Afrostream, a subscription video on demand service (SVOD) of African, African-American and African-Caribbean films and television series, alongside TheFamily, Cross Culture Ventures I L.P. and ACE & Company.

Through its corporate fund, Orange will enable Afrostream to accelerate the development of its original and innovative service in Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and South America.

Afrostream’s unlimited SVOD streaming service is already available on all connected screens in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire. It features programming for the entire family and includes cartoons, concerts and documentaries, in addition to films and TV series.

Taking advantage of its presence in Africa as well as in European countries with large African diaspora populations, Orange wishes to collaborate with the start-up to facilitate Afrostream’s development by providing its expertise in networks, distribution and payment.

Afrostream has been supported by Orange Fab France and Y Combinator, a seed accelerator based in Silicon Valley. The investment illustrates Orange’s support to talented entrepreneurs through a combination of measures made available to start-ups, from the acceleration program to early stage financing.

Pierre Louette, Deputy CEO of Orange and President of Orange Digital Ventures, said “This investment is part of ODV’s ambition to finance services that are able to address different geographical areas in which Orange is present. It will enable us to develop the video-on-demand market, particularly in Africa. It will also enable us to enrich the content we already offer to our customers in France, as Afrostream should be launched on Orange TV by next summer.”

Tonjé Bakang, CEO of Afrostream, commented that “The future of television is mobile. With this strategic investment by Orange, Afrostream now brings together the best of the mobile internet and the best of African content. This new alliance will enable us to revolutionize the entertainment industry and to reach all audiences.”
