SES Secures Contract with Major Indonesian Media Company
SES has entered into a contract agreement with Indonesian media group Surya Citra Media (SCM), and its satellite direct-to-home TV provider Nex Parabola to provide exclusive HD coverage of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League soccer tournaments this season. This will be done via SES’s SES 9 satellite.
The two European football channels will be packaged together with exclusive content from SCM Group. These new channels include Citra Cinema, Citra Drama Plus, Citra Muslim and Citra Dangdut, providing a variety of lifestyle, entertainment and religious content for Nex Parabola customers.
SES-9 is co-located at 108.2 degrees East orbital position with SES-7 and provides prime coverage over all 17,000 islands in Indonesia, as well as locations in South Asia, Northeast Asia, Australia and the Middle East. The 108.2 degrees East neighbourhood is targeted for video services and ensures extensive coverage over all corners of the country for SES-9. This, coupled with SES-9’s high-powered wide beam design, makes the satellite ideal for local broadcast services.
