Reaching more than 33 million TV homes, the C-band platform will be hosted at a new video position for the Americas at 47.5 degrees West and was developed by and services provider Sersat which has a teleport in Buenos Aires. In addition, channels are being picked up by other direct-to-home platforms which serve another 29.3 million homes, bringing the total number of TV households it serves to 62.6 million. SES was a strategic partner to Sersat when broadcasting the Rally Dakar Peru 2019 using the SES-10 and SES-14 satellites.

“Having worked with SES in the past, we are confident that they can provide us with high-quality services for our operators in the region,” said Sersat president Verónica Martinez. “From our teleport in Buenos Aires, we manage the end-to-end transmission signals for local and international channels, enabling pay-TV providers in Latin America to build differentiated content networks and provide more channels across the region.

“Across Latin America, the demand for content has never been greater. Through our assets and partnerships, we are pleased to be able to leverage the power of satellite to deliver content to mass audiences,” added Jurandir Pitsch, vice president sales, Latin America and Caribbean of SES Video. “The latest agreement with Sersat is an extension of our long-term partnership to offer more and better video solutions to satisfy the demand of content distributors and owners that want to deliver more content across Latin America.”
