SES Video's agreement will be providing All Media Baltics' several transponders of satellite capacity on ASTRA 4A to distribute its five original channels and its pay TV channel package to the Baltics, which includes movies, entertainment, and sports.
All Media Baltics' Pay TV subscribers will be able to enjoy the broadcaster’s channel package in HD quality, including its original premium TV channels, at 5 degrees East, following a multi-year capacity agreement announced by SES.
All Media Baltics was created in October 2017 after Providence Equity Partners acquired all of the media and Pay TV companies of Modern Times Group in the Baltics, which was using SES for delivery of its TV package at 5 degrees East. With this agreement, All Media Baltics ensures continuity for audiences and leverages the reach of SES’s prime orbital position over the Nordic and Baltic region: SES reaches 1.73 million TV homes in the Baltics at that slot, representing 65 percent of all TV homes in the market.
Håkan Sjödin, Vice President, Sales Nordic, Baltic and Eastern Europe at SES Video said that not only do they provide premium DTH services, but they are also in the best position to bring high definition content to TV households in the Baltics, as they serve 78 percent of HDTV homes in the region via their satellites. He added that they are very pleased to support All Media Baltics with its DTH needs in high definition and they look forward to helping them continue to grow.
Arvils Kupris, COO All Media Baltics commented that TV entertainment requires high quality content and also reliable broadcasting services in order to satisfy their viewers. He continued that SES has a track record of providing top-quality broadcasting services. They are confident that the company will help them continue entertaining their audience in the best possible way and to ensure premium quality services.
