The company’s innovative collaboration with the Andean Community of Nations (CAN) has spurred the implementation of new networks on the AMC-4 satellite in the coveted 67° West orbital slot. Increased regional demand is being met through the timely deployment of Ku band on AMC-4.
It’s no surprise that SES WORLD SKIES is a top platform choice in Latin America and around the world. The operator’s aggressive launch strategy is keenly focused on providing the capacity needed to fuel DTH, broadband, cable TV and business growth around the world.
Unmatched DTH Success
The success of Claro TV in Puerto Rico is a great example of the unmatched technology and expertise SES WORLD SKIES brings to the region. The premium DTH offering, launched by Puerto Rico Telephone on the AMC-21 satellite, has subscribers tuning in across the island.
“We have the most reliable distribution partner in the business in SES WORLD SKIES and a state-of-the-art facility in place to deliver the very best entertainment option in the market that combines our superior voice offering with top-notch programming,” said Mario Barrera, chief operating officer for Puerto Rico Telephone. “We are investing in new satellites and the global infrastructure to support the Latin America and Caribbean region, and we’re proud to enable market innovators like Puerto Rico Telephone realize their exciting plans,” added Dolores Martos, vice president of sales in Latin America and the Caribbean for SES WORLD SKIES.
SES WORLD SKIES is also enabling much of India’s unparalleled DTH growth. India has seven DTH providers already serving a market of more than 25 million subscribers. Projections call for that number to leap past 40 million by 2015. The country’s largest DTH operator, DISH TV, has 8.6 million customers on SES WORLD SKIES’ NSS-6 satellite.
“Collaborating closely with ISRO (India Space Research Organization) and its commercial arm ANTRIX, SES WORLD SKIES is aggressively expanding strategic satellite capacity over the region,” said Deepak Mathur, SES WORLD SKIES’ vice president of sales for South Asia and the Middle East. DTH is gaining significant momentum across places like Vietnam and Africa as well.
An Vien Group (AVG) recently launched Vietnam’s latest DTH offering on the NSS-6 spacecraft. “The development is exciting for new entrants, our business, and consumers who ultimately have more choice and channels,” explained Elias Zaccack, vice president of Asia-Pacific sales for SES WORLD SKIES. “We selected SES WORLD SKIES high-powered NSS-6 satellite because of its optimal DTH coverage of our target market,” said Pham Nhat Vu, CEO of An Vien Group.
