SES Reaches 355 Million Homes
According to SES‘ annual market research, SES increased the households it served by more than 4 million to over 355 million in 2018. The results showed an increase in SES’ technical reach in Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, and Africa. In Africa, this included the addition of Kenya to the survey where more than 2 million TV homes across the country rely on SES for their TV content. In Europe, satellite broadcasting, and especially Direct-to-Home (DTH), remains the leading distribution technology, with SES serving 167 million TV homes across the continent.
The SES fleet is also delivering video content to 72 million households across North America, mainly via the important U.S. cable neighbourhoods. Across other markets, SES continues to expand its technical reach, which now totals 102.6 million TV homes served by key video neighborhoods in Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Africa.
“At SES, we invest in tools and services to help our customers gather information about markets they operate in so that they can be even more successful in their business. The Satellite Monitor is one such tool that demonstrates the long-term value of SES’s core video neighborhoods and extensive reach to our customers,” said SES Video CEO Ferdinand Kayser. “Regardless of the shift in consumption habits, it is clear that our business remains an essential tool in delivering a high-quality viewing experience to the world’s leading broadcasters and content owners. Through the differentiation of our services, we will continue to support their development and future success.”
