ViacomCBS Networks International has selected Intelsat to continue distributing its content in Central Europe, Eastern Europe and across the Asia Pacific region.
According to Intelsat, it was chosen for its ability to deliver managed media services, global coverage and integrated satellite distribution and terrestrial network.
In the Central and Eastern European market, VCNI employs Intelsat’s direct-to-home (DTH) platform on the 1 West video neighbourhood, which can reach more than 17. million viewers across the region, to deliver its premium programming.
In Southeast Asia, VCNI is leveraging the Intelsat 19 (IS-19) satellite to serve its distribution affiliates, including cable headends, throughout the region.
VCNI will also continue to utilise Intelsat’s terrestrial uplink services to distribute its video content across key Asian and Central and Eastern European markets.
“We are proud to once again be selected as the partner of choice by ViacomCBS Networks International in distributing their premium content,” said Intelsat regional vice president of North America Tim Schermerhorn. “Our managed services are underpinned by the integrated hybrid space and the IntelsatOne terrestrial fibre network, providing the highest quality access available to multiple platforms and teleports.”
