Pacific Television moves to SES World Skies

July 15, 2011

SES World Skies, a division of SES, has confirmed a new capacity deal on two SES satellites with transmission and live production provider Pacific Television Center aimed at expanding and enhancing the delivery of Trinity Broadcasting Networks’s Christian-based programming around the world. Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) is the world’s largest religious network and America’s most watched and requested faith channel.

As part of the five-year agreement, Pacific Television Center is utilising MPEG-4 technology and capacity on a global C-band transponder aboard SES’ NSS-9 satellite to distribute Trinity’s 4 channels of network programming to audiences across the Pacific Ocean Region. Pacific Television Center is also leveraging C-band capacity aboard the NSS-5 spacecraft, enabling Trinity to reach viewers in the Americas, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Pacific Television Center is using 24MHz of capacity aboard the two advanced satellites.
