Intelsat Expands Distribution for Spanish Broadcasting System


Intelsat, the world's leading provider of commercial satellite services, signed a new multi-year contract with Spanish Broadcasting System of Miami, officials said Thursday.

 Under the agreement, Spanish Broadcasting System will use Intelsat’s complete network of satellite, teleport and fiber for distribution of its Mega TV network programming to cable operators, direct-to-home providers, and free-to-air affiliates throughout the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

SBS will transport its Mega TV content via fiber to one of Intelsat’s Miami video points-of-presence, from which the content will be backhauled via fiber to Intelsat’s Ellenwood, Georgia Teleport for encoding, multiplexing and transmission on Intelsat’s Galaxy 13 satellite at 127.0° W.
