M7 Group Extends SES Deal to Deliver German TV Content
M7 Group has extended its agreement with SES to deliver its TV channels from the 19.2 degrees east orbital position. Under the agreement, M7 Group will continue to use one full transponder on an Astra satellite to deliver its TV package to subscribers in the Benelux and across German-speaking countries for the next three years.
M7 Group will also benefit from SES’ content neighborhood via this orbital position, said Bill Wijdeveld, M7 Group’s vice president of business development.
M7 relies on SES to deliver content from 23.5 degrees east as well, in order to reach viewers in Central Eastern Europe, according to Martin Ornass-Kubacki, SES Video’s vice president of sales for the region.
