SPI Selects Eutelsat to Pursue Expansion Across the Americas
SPI International/FILMBOX Channels Group has signed a multi-year multi-satellite agreement with Eutelsat Americas, a subsidiary of Eutelsat Communications, to distribute 10 High-Definition (HD) channels and one Ultra-HD channel to homes across the Americas.
Starting on March 1, SPI International will leverage two Eutelsat satellites to take its channels to a broad audience across the region. Eutelsat 113 West A will be used to distribute channels in the United States and Spanish-speaking Latin America, while the new Eutelsat 65 West A satellite will enable SPI to serve regionalized content to operators in Brazil. United Teleports in Miami will provide play-out and uplink services along with the technical management of the platform.
