TVGE International adds satellite and online distribution via SES and MX1

TVGE International, Equatorial Guinea´s governmental channel, is partnering with SES and MX1 to deliver its content worldwide on both linear and non-linear platforms, the company said.

TVGE International is a free-to-air, Spanish-speaking channel that offers local news, entertainment and cultural programmes.

Under the agreement announced by SES/MX1, TVGE International will use satellite capacity to broadcast its 24/7 channel across Africa, Europe and the Americas.

In addition, SES´s wholly owned subsidiary MX1 will provide video-on-demand (VOD) services and web applications for the channel. The non-linear distribution service, which will be the first of its kind in Equatorial Guinea, will enable viewers across the world to stream the channel live on the TVGE website or watch its programmes on their phones via a dedicated application.
