The Australian DTH service provider will continue distributing its content using Ku-band satellite services on Intelsat 19
TV Plus, a direct-to-home (DTH) TV provider servicing diverse communities in Australia, has renewed a multi-year satellite services agreement with Intelsat.
Having worked with Intelsat for more than 10 years, TV Plus has seen how Intelsat’s video neighbourhood has helped expand its audience reach, said John Jeremic, director at TV Plus. He continued: “We are able to cost-efficiently add more channels to the platform, and deliver more programming to our viewers while maintaining the same amount of satellite bandwidth.”
Under the previously referenced renewal agreement, TV Plus will use Ku-band satellite services on Intelsat 19 to deliver content to local viewers in Australia and New Zealand. Positioned at 166° East orbital location, Intelsat 19 has been reaching out to more than 37 million pay-TV subscribers.
Terry Bleakley, managing director, sales, Asia-Pacific, Intelsat, concluded: “There is a lot of opportunity for diverse programming in the Asia-Pacific region, and consumers are demanding quicker access and more viewing options.
“Working with TV Plus and building upon the strong relationship we’ve established over the past several years has given us a greater understanding of the demand, and the type of cost-effective satellite service it needs to reach to a broader audience, with more programming options.”
