The satellite operator SES announced that it has signed a multi-year capacity agreement with SPI International/Filmbox Channels Group to support the company’s expansion in Latin America and distribute its HD channels in the region through satellite NSS-806.
SPI will extend its reach in Latin America thanks to the C-band capacity of the satellite, which covers the entire region in one single beam and is capable of reaching about 90% of all pay TV subscribers in South America.
SPI’s HD channel offer for Latin America includes FightBox HD, FashionBox HD, DocuBox HD, Fast&FunBox HD, 360TuneBox HD, FilmBox Art House, Gametoon, NatureVision TV, Erox HD and Eroxxx HD.
NSS-806 is located at 47.5 degrees West. The SPI channels are eventually expected to move to SES-14, which is scheduled for launch this year and will replace NSS-806.
