The National Institute of Radio and Television of Peru (TV Peru), a Peruvian TV broadcaster, has signed a new and expanded contract with Intelsat S.A. The contract aims to enhance TV Peru’s Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) offering in Peru, and to strongly position the company to distribute its programming internationally.

Under the multi-year agreement, TV Peru renewed C- and Ku-band services on Intelsat 14, the company’s latest video neighborhood in Latin America.  TV Peru will rely on Intelsat 14 to distribute High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) content to its television stations and affiliates in Peru, as well as to provide contribution services for sports and news-gathering.

In addition, TV Peru will utilize C-band satellite solutions on Intelsat 11 to launch a new, international HD channel in Peru. Intelsat 11 distributes more than 200 channels, with over 95 channels in HD. The reach of Intelsat 11 will help TV Peru cost effectively expand its content distribution to other parts of South America, North America, and Europe.
