SES, Media Networks Latin America sign DTH capacity pact

MUMBAI: Media Networks Latin America (MNLA) has signed a long-term capacity deal with Satellite operator SES to expand its pay-TV service across Central America and the Caribbean.

As part of the deal, MNLA, a unit of Telefonica Digital, has secured multiple transponders on SES‘ AMC-4 satellite in order to launch a new DTH wholesale pay-TV service reaching new audiences with a combined lineup of international and regional SD and HD channels.

The SES spacecraft AMC-4, located at 67 degrees West, allows MNLA to meet the DTH demand in Central America and the Caribbean as well as other future growth markets with its existing ground infrastructure, including its teleport in Lima, Peru.

AMC-4 was deployed at 67 degrees West in 2010 and provides expansion capacity in Latin America for a broad range of applications, such as rural telecommunications, VSAT networks, e-learning, pay-TV and mobile broadband. With the relocation of AMC-3 to 67 degrees West at the end of February, SES is further strengthening and complementing its coverage and offering from this orbital position.

“SES has the ideal coverage, spectrum and unmatched DTH experience to expand into new markets throughout Latin America,” said MNLA CTO Pedro Planas. “Our long-term agreement with SES represents a strategic partnership aimed at meeting the increasing demand from our customers, the existing and new pay-TV operators in the region, and will allow us to continue offering a growing lineup of content.”

“Teaming up with MNLA is of high strategic importance for us," said SES chief commercial officer Ferdinand Kayser. “It is further proof that satellite can ideally complement and strengthen the offer of telecommunications companies. As a leader in DTH broadcasting with large geographical coverage and high quality linear video delivery, SES sees itself as a perfect partner for telecommunications companies, connecting interactive and television services. SES is committed to the long-term success, growth and innovation of such services throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. We look forward to playing an important role in the expansion and future growth of Media Networks Latin America‘s DTH business in Central America, the Caribbean and beyond."
