Home2US renews capacity agreement with SES

MUMBAI: Home2US has renewed its long-term capacity agreement on SES-1 and expanded its international DTH platform serving ethnic audiences across the US.

In conjunction with a new multi-year, multi-transponder deal on SES-1, Home2US has added six new television networks and five new radio channels from Greece and Cyprus to its DTH lineup featuring top programming from around the world.

Home2US is broadcasting over the SES platform utilising MPEG-4 DVB-S and S2 compression technologies, which enable efficient channel growth, HD and hybrid TV delivery, and a strategic expansion into markets throughout EMEA. 
???The Greek and Cypriot channels are important new channels on the Home2US lineup in North America, which is expected to add at least another two dozen networks by early next year," said Home2US CMO Nancy Dube. "Our renewed agreement will take us well into the second decade of our partnership with SES, setting the stage for advancements in HD and interactive TV delivery as well as an exciting extension of our DTH platform into Europe, the Middle East and Africa."

"The Home2US lineup of the best international programming has really struck a chord with a broad range of diverse, multi-cultural audiences living and working throughout the US," said SES Sr VP Global Sales Scott Sprague Scott Sprague. "The next chapter of our alliance with Home2US should see many exciting developments in how and where Home2US DTH programming is delivered."

Many of Greece‘s popular TV networks have been added to the Home2US lineup, including Mega Cosmos, the channel that features everything from reality and news shows to movies and documentaries. Alter Globe, Star International, RikSat and GMTV are among the other Greek channels exclusive to Home2US DTH audiences.
