SES Platform Services has won an international tender by Turner Broadcasting System. Starting November 2013, SES Platform Services will provide playout for Boomerang, Cartoon Network, glitz, TNT Film and TNT Serie for the German-speaking market. The channels will be broadcast in SD and HD quality from playout centres in Europe. The two companies have also agreed to cooperate in the Benelux region, beginning with SES Platform Services broadcasting the Cartoon Network from February 2014.
The second core aspect of the agreement will see SES Platform Services providing playout for Turner content on the on-demand and catch-up services of Turner’s distribution partners in the Benelux region and in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. From November 2013, SES Platform Services will also begin digitising Turner content and converting it into the necessary formats for digital distribution.
