Aiming to maximise viewership with the operator’s suite of managed media services, direct-to-home platform, video neighbourhoods, terrestrial fibre and ground-to-satellite uplinks, ViacomCBS Networks International (VCNI) has selected Intelsat to continue distributing content in Central Europe, Eastern Europe and across the Asia Pacific region.

VCNI delivers premium content through notable brands such as BET, MTV and Nickelodeon to a worldwide audience said to be in the billions across both traditional and emerging platforms. Intelsat says that it was chosen for its unique ability to deliver managed media services, global coverage and integrated satellite distribution and terrestrial network.

In the Central and Eastern European market, VCNI uses the reach of Intelsat’s direct-to-home (DTH) platform on the 1 West video neighbourhood to deliver its premium programming to more than 17.8 million viewers across the region. In Southeast Asia, VCNI uses the Intelsat 19 (IS-19) satellite to serve its distribution affiliates, including cable head-ends, throughout the region. The IS-19 video neighbourhood can reach up to 70 million viewers in Asia Pacific.

VCNI will also continue to utilise Intelsat’s terrestrial uplink services to distribute its video content across key Asian and Central and Eastern European markets, including remote and hard-to-reach areas.

“We are proud to once again be selected as the partner of choice by ViacomCBS Networks International in distributing their premium content,” said Intelsat Regional Vice President of North America Tim Schermerhorn commenting on the deal.

Intelsat is the first choice for major media companies requiring global distribution and managed media services. We are honoured that VCNI values the expertise and reliability inherent in Intelsat’s managed services that enable us to expertly deliver content anywhere in the world. Our managed services are underpinned by the integrated hybrid space and the IntelsatOne terrestrial fibre network, providing the highest quality access available to multiple platforms and teleports.”
