Kiwisat Subscribers get augmented channel bouquet via SES

Aiming to enhance the variety of its TV package with Spanish-speaking content and new English-speaking channels, satellite TV provider Kiwisat is delivering 60 new channels to Caribbean audiences, of which 50 are in HD (High Definition), using SES´s satellite SES-10, the company said.

Under the long-term extension agreement announced by SES, Kiwisat is leasing additional capacity to transmit the 60 additional channels via SES-10, which is already delivering Kiwisat´s current TV package of about 130 channels. This brings the new Kiwisat content line-up to about 190 channels, of which about 140 are in HD, with a mix of content in three languages: English, French, and now Spanish.

Launched in April this year on SES-10, Kiwisat offers the largest HD bouquet in the Caribbean region. By extending its channel line-up, Kiwisat will be able to offer different targeted TV packages adapted to the islands´ population and main language. With the support of resellers across the Caribbean, this will allow the platform to cater to various consumers´ needs in the region and reach a wider audience.

SES is the world´s satellite operator with over 70 satellites in two different orbits, Geostationary Orbit (GEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). It provides a diverse range of customers with global video distribution and data connectivity services through two business units: SES Video and SES Networks.
