Insight TV in LatAm via SES UHD platform
September 17, 2018
Insight TV, a broadcaster and producer of native UHD HDR content, has announced its foray into Latin America through SES’ Latin American Ultra HD platform. Insight TV’s unique 4K content is now available on a 24/7 basis in English, Spanish and Portuguese to all cable, IPTV and DTH providers who are working with SES in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and South America.
Launched in April, SES’s new Ultra HD platform is an all-in-one package of pre-configured Ultra HD content, reception equipment, and satellite distribution hosted on SES-14 that enables Ultra HD deployments throughout Latin America.
“We have been partners with Insight TV since 2015. From launching Ultra HD channels in Europe via SES satellites, to joining SES’ North American Ultra HD platform to grow its audience beyond Europe in 2016, we are delighted to have the Ultra HD channel on our Latin American UHD platform so it can expand further,” said Steve Corda, Vice President, Media Platform North America at SES Video. “In Latin America, demand for Ultra HD content doesn’t cease and has reached a critical mass since the World Cup. We are dedicated to helping industry players satisfy this demand as our satellites are the optimal way to deliver Ultra HD content to large audiences, and our platform the ideal solution for pay-TV operators and channels to get started in the region.”
“Insight TV is excited to bring its immersive and exciting action sports, entertainment and lifestyle specials and series to viewers across Latin America and South America via SES’ Ultra HD platform,” added Robert Gold, VP for Americas of Insight TV. “Building on the incredible growth we have experienced in Europe, North America and Asia, this new distribution platform gives Insight TV a strong foothold in all of Latin America and enables us to deliver award-winning programming to millions of new 4K viewers.”
