Direct-to-Home for Broadcasters

Reach more viewers worldwide

Myth: television is dead

Direct To Home (DTH) broadcast remains the simplest and cheapest way to bring high-quality linear content to millions of households worldwide.

Its future lies as a partner and alternative to OTT services:

  • DTH broadcast brings global reach, economy of scale, high signal reliability, and access to live content.
  • It is the only option for many parts of the world where there is limited access to streaming services or cable TV.

Our global network reaches 361 million homes via prime video neighbourhoods in Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific.

How DTH works in four steps

Delivered anywhere in the world


SES, or a partner teleport, receives the channel or content via satellite or terrestrial means.


At the teleport, the channel is re-encoded to the correct bandwidth rate.


It’s then multiplexed into a single stream which is modulated and uplinked to the satellite.


The signal is broadcast to all households simultaneously.

Why SES?
