GlobeCast Renews Capacity Deal with SES in the Americas

SES (Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) and GlobeCast announced today they have renewed their agreement for use of transponders on SES' NSS-806 and AMC-1 satellites.

To enable international broadcasters to reach cable headends in both Latin America and North America, GlobeCast will continue to utilise two transponders of 36 MHz on the NSS-806 satellite at 319.5 degrees East and one transponder of 36 MHz on the AMC-1 satellite at 103 degrees West.

"North America remains the largest broadcast market in the world, and Latin America is a critically important element in our international broadcast strategy," said Philippe Rouxel, Chief Marketing Officer of GlobeCast. “For this reason, GlobeCast is pleased to continue its partnership with SES to provide our broadcast clients with optimal coverage of the Americas at a prime orbital location.”

“We are honoured that GlobeCast has decided to renew our ongoing partnership. The latest capacity agreements illustrate GlobeCast's and SES' shared commitment to deliver best-in-class broadcasting services across Latin America and North America," said Ferdinand Kayser, Chief Commercial Officer of SES.
