SES WORLD SKIES... Wanting More, Receiving More (SatBroadcasting™—Content)

[SatNews] VoD + HD — broadcasting technologies that are requiring more and more capacity to deliver outstanding content to consumers.

SES WORLD SKIES, a division of SES S.A. (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG), has revealed that iN DEMAND has renewed a long-term capacity deal, tapping two satellites to deliver much of its Video On Demand (VoD), Pay-Per-View and HD content to cable systems across North America. As part of the renewal agreement, iN DEMAND will continue to use two transponders aboard SES WORLD SKIES’ AMC-1 and AMC-10 satellites to support its innovative transactional platforms featuring sports, movies, events and entertainment programming. In all, iN DEMAND relies on five transponders and three of SES WORLD SKIES’ HD-PRIME satellites (AMC-1, AMC-10, AMC-11) to reach more than 52 million households in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
