Sponsored by SES, the first virtual fair to be held through a 100% digital platform, where you can have an interactive experience with us and learn about our solutions that can boost the distribution of your content.

SES position as the world's leading distributor of video content for satellite shows the important role that satellite continues to play in reaching the widest possible audience globally. In LATAM, SES has captured an audience of 42 million households, a significant increase from the 34 million households reported in 2018, thanks in part to the launch of a new satellite, SES 14, which is driving the growth of cable and IPTV in the region.

We hope you enjoy this opportunity to connect with us and learn about our services that can improve coverage in the Americas, providing enriching viewing experiences, either through direct transmission of satellite television or indirectly through cable television headends.

SES-6 C-Band CoverageSES’ premier video neighborhood in Latin America and the Caribbean. The C-band payload will offer incremental capacity to support channel growth at this key cable neighborhood. SES-6 at 40.5° West provides dedicated secure delivery to every Pay TV headend across Latin America, making it ideal for content owners to distribute their content. The channels are of mixed genres including entertainment, news, sports, and business.



SES-14 C-Band CoverageThe wide C-band signal coverage of SES-14 was designed as a second video distribution position for cable and DTH operators in Latin America, while the capacity of high-throughput spot beams on the Ku band will serve the dynamic aeronautical market and other applications of intense traffic such as maritime, mobile transmission and broadband services. Broad Ku-band coverage bundles will also serve the growing market for VSAT network operations and DTH operations throughout Latin America.

SES-14 differentiates itself by the use of its wide coverage beams in combination with spot beams. This enables the optimization of entertainment and connectivity applications by delivering live TV content and internet capability simultaneously, thereby increasing the market that SES can meet with this launch.

Canal Antigua

Grupo A, a media consortium based in Guatemala City, has partnered with SES, the leader in global content connectivity solutions, and Trabroadcast SA, a local integrator for several TV stations in Guatemala and Honduras, to provide a full suite of managed services to broadcast two local free-to-air channels, Canal Antigua and Conectados con Dios TV, to viewers across Guatemala via the SES-6 satellite.

Under the agreement, Trabroadcast SA will be broadcasting the TV channels through their teleport in Guatemala and using a multiplex turnkey service on the SES-6 satellite. Instead of having SES uplink the signal from its teleport to the free-to-air satellite platform on SES-6, Trabroadcast SA will do its own uplinking, ensuring high quality and availability of image and sound, without added investment in infrastructure.
