SES Delivers FTA Channels Across Brazil via the SES-10 Satellite

TV viewers across Brazil can now receive some of the country’s most popular channels, such as TV Cultura, via SES’s new, Ku-band, free-to-air (FTA) solution on the SES-10 satellite located at 67 degrees West.

To ensure that TV viewers can easily access these channels, broadcasters can send their content to SES’s teleport in the city of Hortolândia and uplink to the satellite’s Ku-band capacity. Regional channel affiliates and TV viewers will only need to purchase an available DVB-S2 compatible Set Top Box (STB) to receive the signals from SES-10 which allows them to use more affordable and easier-to-install 60cm to 75 cm. antennas.

TV Cultura, among other channels and content owners, have been testing SES’s newest Ku-band uplink and are reaping the benefits of getting to market faster and being able to broadcast to millions of viewers at a lower investment cost. Broadcasters and radio operators will also be able to leverage the Ku-band distribution solution. 

SES is participating at the Church Expo and will be showcasing this FTA solution on SES-10 as well as the company's new Over-The-Top (OTT) platform on stand #1. By reaching broadband connected viewers via IP and all other users via satellite, SES’s hybrid distribution networks help customers seamlessly deliver content to their largest possible audience.
