Media & Broadcast
Orange TV is a broadcaster offering triple play services to the French market. When a customer signs up for telephony and ADSL from Orange, they also receive a free package of TV channels. Orange also offers subscriptions via satellites so its subscribers can receive telephony, ADSL, free TV channels, Canal+ and CanalSat, as well as gaining exclusive access to its own pay-TV offerings.
Orange TV wanted to offer television to all their Internet subscribers throughout France, requiring satellite delivery with 100% coverage of the French territory to reach subscribers with limited ADSL speeds.
The overwhelming majority of French satellite TV homes have their dishes aimed at SES satellites, which helped Orange choose to broadcast their exclusive content via SES.
SES was uniquely positioned to help, since the overwhelming majority of French satellite TV homes have their dishes aimed at our satellites. This helped Orange choose to broadcast their exclusive content via SES, and enabled Orange TV subscribers to receive TV channels via satellite at no additional charge, even when they are in slow or no-ADSL areas.
