A new distribution contract between Telekom Srbija and SES Video has launched a new TV package across Europe via the orbital position 23.5 degrees East.
Under the new multi-year agreement announced by SES today, Telekom Srbija is leasing satellite capacity on ASTRA 3B to distribute the new TV bouquet to cable and IPTV networks across Europe, with a focus on Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Macedonia and Montenegro. The new TV package will initially comprise seven TV channels including Agro TV, Film Klub, Kitchen TV, Star TV and Zenska TV. Three additional channels will be added by this summer.
“This is a significant step for us as we are now delivering our local and regional content to Europe via our partners’ networks,” said Marijana Vukasinovic, Head of Content Management at Telekom Srbija. “This TV package will offer a variety of Serbian and regional TV programmes to viewers across Europe. We have worked with SES on many different projects over the years, and we could not think of a better partner to rely on.”
“We are very pleased to work together with Telekom Srbija on the expansion of their video business by providing high-quality broadcasting services,” said Martin Ornass-Kubacki, Vice President, Central Eastern Europe, Sales at SES Video. “This deal is yet another exciting step that strengthens the cooperation with our long-standing partner in Serbia as we work together to launch a brand new TV bouquet to Europe.”
