SES will continue to provide capacity for Canal Plus across Western and Central Europe until the end of the decade after the two companies signed a new long-term deal.
The multi-transponder contract renewal will see SES continue to support the French pay-TV operator’s channels broadcasting in SD, HD and UHD and includes options for additional capacity and extensions.
“Extending our partnership with SES was a natural choice, since we have a long and successful partnership in delivering superior quality video experiences to diverse audiences around the world. This agreement across three orbital slots demonstrates that satellite is at heart of our pay-tv operations throughout the world. We look forward to many more years of working together to ensure we reach the widest possible TV audiences,” said Jacques du Puy, CEO, CANAL+ International.
