Mexican multimedia company Grupo Televisa extended their contract with Intelsat to utilize high-throughput (HTS) Ku-band beams on Intelsat 35e for European distribution needs.

The new multi-year agreement also allows Grupo Televisa to leverage Intelsat’s global hybrid network, including the IntelsatOne terrestrial network. Intelsat will transport the signals from Televisa’s master control in Mexico City via IntelsatOne’s terrestrial network to the company’s teleport in Fuchsstadt, Germany, for turnaround services of its content throughout Europe. Intelsat is also providing a fully managed service offering for Televisa’s European distribution, including monitoring the signal and providing immediate response to ensure efficient, reliable and high-quality content delivery at all times.

“In order to further expand Televisa’s international business and meet our global transmission needs, we need an end-to-end solution that is quick to scale and can reliably distribute high quality, secure content to our viewers,” said William Aguirre, director of satellite operations, Televisa. “Intelsat’s world-class global network and managed media solutions have enabled us to expand into new markets, cost efficiently distribute high quality content to viewers across Europe.”
