LUXEMBOURG AND LONDON, 15 June 2016 -- SES S.A. (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG), the world-leading satellite operator, and XTreme Video announced today their collaboration to broadcast new content on SES's Ultra HD demonstration channel at ASTRA 19.2 degrees East and ASTRA 28.2 degrees East. The Ultra HD content will be available in June 2016 and will include XTreme Video's most exciting extreme sports content, such as mountain biking and Freeskiing.


SES launched its first Ultra HD demo channel in April 2013 on ASTRA 19.2 degrees East, and brought it to the UK and Ireland in February 2015 via ASTRA 28.2 degrees East. The channel features a mix of colourful, detailed content – sports, art, city and landscape scenes - that demonstrates how Ultra HD offers a more compelling viewing experience.

“As video content is king, we are delighted to add new scenes to our Ultra HD demo channel,” said Norbert Hölzle, Senior Vice President, Commercial Europe at SES. “Our goal for this channel is to promote the Ultra HD experience to the largest audience. We encourage our trade partners to show our Ultra HD demo channel at their points of sale for demonstration purposes."

Gregg Bywalski, newly-appointed General Manager of XTreme Video added, “We truly believe that the beauty and spectacle of extreme and outdoor programming are complemented by Ultra HD quality broadcasting in a unique way. This offers the viewer an unparalleled experience.”
