Asia-Pacific Media Companies Turn To Intelsat For Regional Expansion

Stocks in this article: I

Intelsat S.A. (NYSE: I), the world’s leading provider of satellite services, announced today agreements with leading media customers in the Asia-Pacific region.

Hong Kong-based TVBI Company Limited (TVBI), the worldwide operating arm of Television Broadcasts Limited, one of the world’s largest producers and distributors of Chinese-language programming, recently renewed a multi-year agreement on Intelsat 19. TVBI will use the capacity to deliver its premier content to customers in the Asia-Pacific region.

In addition, KDDI, a Japan-based global telecommunications company, recently signed an agreement with Intelsat to deliver managed media services via the IntelsatOne network. With an IntelsatOne edge node at the company’s New York City location, the IP network will connect KDDI’s customer’s four U.S. bureaus, as well as a European bureau, with the customer’s Tokyo headquarters over KDDI’s fiber network, delivering multiple video, file transfer and voice services.

The scalable network connects seamlessly with legacy services, such as on-net video contribution for Japanese broadcasters, via Intelsat’s owned and operated teleports and customer affiliates in the United States.

Intelsat offers the premier video neighborhoods in Asia-Pacific, with excellent penetration throughout the region. Media providers continue to take advantage of Intelsat’s satellite fleet and IntelsatOne network to reach customers in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

“These agreements exemplify the aggressive growth in media distribution services across Asia-Pacific,” said Intelsat RVP of Asia-Pacific Sales Terry Bleakley. “Major programmers in the region continue to turn to Intelsat’s premier video neighborhoods for the flexible delivery of unique content on multiple platforms, reinforcing our critical role in the global infrastructure.”
