Satellites are ideal for transmitting content to cable and terrestrial networks on every continent. At SES, we provide the lease of dedicated space segment services for your content distribution. Our satellites are the main distributor of cable programming, with neighbourhoods that reach almost every cable household, in Europe and the US, bringing the world’s most informative and entertaining programming to your audiences.
You will benefit from:
- Reaching 100% of the network head-ends in the covered regions (both cable and terrestrial)
- Prime video content neighbourhood on DTH orbital slots
- The ability to transmit high-bandwidth content, such as HD and Ultra HD
- Optimised link for distribution
- Extremely reliable service from ground to satellite, with three levels of back-up
Whether you’re uplinking your content to our satellites from your own broadcast centre or from our teleports, we use MPEG-4 DVB-S2 and HEVC technologies so you can be sure of a smooth transition to HD when you’re ready.
With cable distribution, our satellites feed media content to cable head-ends, or integrated together with DTH. As the satellite feed is made available, it can be dimensioned to make the best possible use of the satellite capacity, often achieving a higher throughput than is achieved with DTH.
The way consumers enjoy content is changing as more content is watched on demand. Audiences that live in remote regions that may not be well connected to the internet backbone have been left behind. Yet they still want to binge-watch their new favourite show at a time that suits them best.Read more about Network Offloading

Creating content is just the start – you also need to get the content out to your audience. Many content providers contribute their video content via satellite, yet in some regions this can be cost prohibitive. If you’re a content provider or content aggregator in the emerging markets, in regions with good terrestrial connectivity, we can help contribute your content in a cost-effective alternative to satellite.Read more about Advanced IP Contribution
