Intelsat announced an agreement with TV Clube, the Brazilian broadcaster from Pernambuco, an affiliate of the national network Rede Record, to move their high definition channel distribution to the satellite Intelsat 14. It is a multi-year deal, though it wasn’t specified an amount of time yet.
“By moving to Intelsat 14, TV Clube will be able to expand the distribution of its regional programming in the State of Pernambuco and deliver cost-effective, reliable, high definition television programming to millions of new viewers”, explained Fernando Eugenio, Superintendent Director at Opinião Sistema de Comunicação, TV Clube’s parent company. The broadcaster will also use the satellite for the distribution in UHF.
Intelsat 14 is located 45° west. It expands the company’s audiovisual content distribution in Latin America together with Intelsat 11, Intelsat 21 and Intelsat 34.
