SES has made a significant new move in the broadcast arena. It has launched a new dedicated satellite distribution platform for sports and events content. SES announced the platform, Oct. 18. The new platform will be able to successfully aggregate and deliver sports and live events to screens across Europe and the MENA region on SES’s new satellite platform.

The new dedicated sports and events distribution platform offers powerful wide beam coverage over Europe, the Middle East and North Africa and uses the latest DVBS2x modulation, enabling media rights holders and authorized feed takers to enjoy high throughput, boosted network efficiency, flexibility and security. The platform will support various customers, including broadcasters, professional sports leagues, national and international sports associations, and sports rights holders transmitting major sporting events taking place globally, including winter sports and motor sports content later this year.

“This is the first time SES has launched a platform dedicated for sports and events content over Europe and the MENA region and affirms our commitment to our sports and events customers and partners. This, coupled with our entire geostationary fleet, fiber and IP infrastructure, will enable us to continue to reach the widest audiences possible,” Michele Gosetti, Head of Sales, Sports & Events at SES, said in a statement
