SES Delivering Capacity for BVN TV

Public broadcaster BVN TV has signed a long-term worldwide distribution agreement with SES for the use of its satellite capacity and services.

SES is delivering BVN TV via the company’s premium neighborhood at ASTRA 19.2 degrees East across Europe and on the SES-5 satellite at 5 degrees East across Africa. In order to ensure seamless global distribution of BVN’s content from a single signal source, SES is also leveraging non-SES satellite capacity, as appropriate.

BVN (Stichting Beste van Vlaanderen en Nederland) is a public, Free-To-Air (FTA) channel that provides Dutch-speaking viewers around the world with TV programming in their native language.

Access to BVN TV through ASTRA 19.2 degrees East was made available from April 1, 2020, via the frequency 11.778 V, SR 29500, FEC 9/10 (SVB-S2 - QPSK) in H.264 (MPEG4). This requires a manual transponder search with the new reception data.
