Intelsat has announced that Brazilian regional television broadcaster, TV Catarina, is the latest television programmer to join Intelsat 14, the company’s new video neighbourhood covering the Latin America region.
Under the previously announced multi-year agreement, TV Catarina will use C-band satellite services on Intelsat 14 in Santa Catarina, a state in southern Brazil, to support the distribution of television programming to UHF retransmission sites. TV Catarina is a TV Bandeirantes affiliate, and one of the main regional broadcasters in Brazil.
“When our customers watch programming on TV Catarina, they receive content that is informative and entertaining, with a signal quality that is clear and reliable,” said Renato Frassetto, TV Catarina’s Technical Coordinator. “Intelsat’s satellite services have a long history in the Latin America region, which means the company truly understands our market. As the latest television programmer to join Intelsat 14, we are benefitting from the reach and high performance of this video neighborhood optimized for high-definition programming which delivers broad coverage in Brazil and reaches millions of viewers in the region.”
