Intelsat and Telenor have expanded their partnership at 1° West to offer 4K/Ultra High Definition (UHD) channel distribution to Nordic and Central Eastern European (CEE) countries.
The two companies will now deliver 4K UHD content into nearly 18 million pay-TV homes in the region.
Among the new channels on offer are NASA TV and WOW 4K, with more expected to be added.
“We know that viewers’ expectations are growing when it comes to user experience. They are looking for a high-quality, high-resolution image, and they also want access to more diversified content,” said Olivier Herson, managing sales director at Intelsat.
“Working with Telenor Satellite, we are making it possible for broadcasters to meet their viewers’ needs in the Nordics, the CEE regions and neighbourhoods that we are already addressing through 1° West.”
