Luxembourg’s SES is reportedly investing in a slew of reception antennas throughout Latin America. The move, scheduled to be ready in time for the launch of its SES-6 satellite early next year, will make it easier for cable operators and IPTV head-ends to receive SES-6’s programming, and appeal to both FTA and pay-TV operators.

The plan was unveiled by SES’ VP/Sales for Latin America, Dolores Martos, who said they were targeting some 4000 head-ends throughout his region, but of which only about 300 were capable of handling HDTV signals.
