QVC Signs Capacity Renewal With SES

SES S.A. (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG) and QVC have renewed a key, multi-year capacity deal and moved a significant block of the latter's regional shopping channel content to the center of the orbital arc, which is quickly becoming the premier content distribution platform over North America.

As part of the agreement, QVC, a world leading video and eCommerce retailer, has signed a capacity extension to deliver a major portion of their regional 24/7 shopping shows and exclusive product showcase lineup via the SES-3 satellite. The deal represents QVC’s steady migration to one of three SES satellites (SES-1, SES-3, AMC-18) hosting the nexgen centre of the arc cable neighborhood. SES-3 is also home to QVC Plus, the multi-channel retailer’s newest US broadcast. QVC has delivered much of its growing and increasingly tailored lineup of specialized shopping channels in North America and Europe over SES satellites for nearly 30 years.
