Eutelsat Signs Latin America Broadcast Deal with Fox Sports Mexico
Eutelsat has won a new broadcasting contract in Latin America. The company announced April 18 that it has signed a multi-year agreement with FOX Sports Mexico, a sports broadcaster, to distribute channels across Mexico via the Eutelsat 117 West A satellite.
FOX Sports Mexico is one of Mexico’s leading multi-platform pay TV sports broadcasters. It includes the channels FOX Sports, FOX Sports 2, FOX Sports 3, and FOX Sports Premium, reaching more than 15 million Mexican households. Building upon an existing partnership between parent entity Grupo Lauman and Eutelsat, this new contract enables Fox Sports Mexico to further its growth strategy in Mexico, as well as develop other projects.
“We are thrilled to have access to the technologies that Eutelsat provides. Our partnership will allow us to reach a wider audience, which creates new and exciting opportunities to continue our sustained growth. This will not only give FOX Sports the possibility to maintain its broadcasting quality but also to extend the presence of the brand throughout multiple households,” Israel Gómez, vice president of Production and Operations at FOX Sports, said in a statement.
