Luxembourg’s SES To Deliver Brazilian Free-To-Air TV Content On Ku-Band Solution

SES Headquarters, Luxembourg

TV viewers across Brazil can now receive some of the country’s most popular channels such as TV Cultura via SES’s new Ku-band free-to-air solution on the SES-10 satellite located at 67 degrees West.

To ensure that TV viewers can easily access these channels, broadcasters can send their content to SES’s teleport in the city of Hortolândia and uplink to the satellite’s Ku-band capacity. Regional channel affiliates and TV viewers will only need to buy an easily available DVB-S2 compatible set top box to receive the signals from SES-10 and can use more affordable and easier-to-install 60cm to 75cm antennas.

TV Cultura, among other channels and content owners, have been testing SES’s newest Ku-band uplink and are reaping the benefits of getting to market faster and being able to broadcast to millions of viewers at a lower investment cost. Broadcasters and radio operators will also be able to leverage the Ku-band distribution solution.

SES is participating at the Church Expo and will be showcasing its free-to-air Ku-band solution on SES-10 as well as its new over-the-top (OTT) platform at booth #1. By reaching broadband connected viewers via IP and all other users via satellite, SES’s hybrid distribution networks help customers seamlessly deliver content to their largest possible audience.
