Making its international debut beyond North America, and expanding its Ultra HD offering, 24/7 general entertainment channel 4KUNIVERSE has arrived to customers of leading Swiss telco Swisscom via SES satellites.

4kuniverse 12Dec20174KUNIVERSE is available as linear television via cable/satellite and as streaming subscription video on demand (SVOD) across over-the-top (OTT) apps. Swisscom already boasts a 4KTV channel line-up, VOD and live sports events, and has now added 4KUNIVERSE which itself was first introduced earlier in 2017 on the SES Ultra HD platform in North America. It now features ten channels offering a range of content including adventure and travel television to space exploration, sports and documentaries.

“The SES Ultra HD platform has played a tremendous role in the overall acceleration of Ultra HD and the rapid development of 4KUNIVERSE, which has grown quickly from a strategic idea to a 24-hour 4K cable TV channel in little more than a year,” said 4KUNIVERSE CEO Matthew Mancinelli.

“We look forward to 4KUNIVERSE being enjoyed in TV households across North America in what promises to be a breakout year in 2018 for the SES Ultra HD solution, and we are very excited about our international growth starting with Swisscom in Switzerland.”
