      Intelsat and Lamhas announced a multi-year agreement for satellite services supporting media distribution in India via the Intelsat 20 satellite. Lamhas is using a C-band, multiple channels per carrier broadcast platform on Intelsat 20, located at 68.5 degrees east, to deliver broadcast services to new and emerging TV channels. Under the agreement, Lamhas increased its services commitment on Intelsat 20, while also renewing its previous agreement for an extended term.

      Intelsat 20 distributes video, voice and broadband services in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Russia. The Intelsat 20 C-band video neighborhood provides programming carried by Indian cable multi-system and Direct-to-Home (DTH) operators, reaching more than 100 million pay-TV subscribers across India. Intelsat’s video distribution service delivers programming to homes in India and across the Indian sub-continent, extending across Asia and Africa. Intelsat 20 and Intelsat 17 combined deliver content from more than 400 TV channels.
