The number of video households served by SES has continued to increase, reaching 351 million TV homes in 2017 according to SES´s annual market research, Satellite Monitor, the company said.
This substantial technical reach compared with 325 million households in 2016 means that SES is now delivering video content to more than 1 billion global viewers.
SES´s increased technical reach reflects the expansion of the survey with the addition of new countries (Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda and Turkey) and the wider reach of Yahlive, namely in the Maghreb countries, together accounting for 17 million more SES TV homes. The company provides satellite communications services to broadcasters, content and Internet service providers, mobile and fixed network operators, governments and institutions. SES´s portfolio includes ASTRA, O3b and MX1, a media service provider that offers a full suite of innovative digital video and media services.
