IKO Media Group, a global end-to-end service provider for broadcasters and international content producer, has joined forces with Blue Ant Media, a distributor and channel operator, to expand distribution for four channels via Intelsat 11 providing satellite coverage across Latin America (LATAM). This expansion comes after the successful launch of iKO’s services to distribute the same channels via Eutelsat across Europe a few months ago.

IKO Media Group is already distributing four channels – ZooMoo HD LATAM, Love Nature HD LATAM, Love Nature 4K LATAM, and Love Nature HD Brazil – to millions of users using Intelsat 11 satellite capacity. In addition, iKO is also providing other services to Blue Ant Media such as encryption done with the Viaccess 6.0 system and Zoomoo Latam playout operated from iKO’s Rome teleport.

“Distributing these high quality channels to LATAM over Intelsat 11 is a huge stepping stone for our ongoing partnership with renowned channel operator Blue Ant Media. This is the second distribution agreement with Blue Ant Media, the first being distribution to Europe over Eutelsat satellite, and we look forward to growing this partnership,” said iKO Board Chairman David Treadway.
