Occasional Use

Bringing Your Content to the World

With events like the Olympics or the FIFA World Cup, it’s like the whole world is watching. Broadcasters around the world trust us to provide seamless point-to-point satellite links for contributing and distributing content from one location to audiences around the globe.

Whether you’re sending content back to the studio for integration into your programming, or contributing complete content to a teleport for broadcast via satellite or other infrastructures, we can help.

Our services ensure your signals are distributed according to an optimised transmission scheme for both occasional use and full-time contribution. Share your view of breaking news or planned events with capacity to cover the latest news, live sports or entertainment (like concerts, reality shows) via an occasional use satellite capacity.

You will benefit from:

  • Short term capacity to broadcast from minutes to months
  • The ability to transmit high-bandwidth content, such as HD and Ultra HD
  • Extremely reliable services from ground to satellite
  • Full package solutions including technical consulting services
  • Easy bundling with our teleport services
  • Flexible online booking that offers segments from 15 minutes to 3 months
  • Worldwide coverage
  • Global, 24/7 customer support
  • Allow booking of capacity up to 90 days in advance
