The multi-year, multi-transponder contract strengthening the longstanding relationship between Televisa and Eutelsat was announced at the NAB show in Las Vegas, Nev.
The new contract, which includes distribution of HD content, increases capacity on the Eutelsat 117 West A satellite and extends leases on Eutelsat 113 West A and Eutelsat 115 West A for distribution of some of Televisa Networks’ key channels to cable headends across the Americas. The capacity will also serve Televisa Networks’ requirements for capacity for contribution and occasional use.
