SES WORLD SKIES, a division of SES S.A., announced that iN DEMAND has renewed a long-term capacity deal, tapping two satellites to deliver much of its Video On Demand, Pay-Per-View and HD content to cable systems across North America.
As part of the renewal agreement, iN DEMAND will continue to utilize two transponders aboard SES WORLD SKIES' AMC-1 and AMC-10 satellites to support its innovative transactional platforms featuring sports, movies, events and entertainment programming. In all, iN DEMAND relies on five transponders and three of SES WORLD SKIES' HD-PRIME satellites (AMC-1, AMC-10, AMC-11) to reach more than 52 million households in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
"SES WORLD SKIES' advanced satellites and its HD-PRIME neighborhood have played an important role in the exciting growth of iN DEMAND," said John Vartanian, Chief Technology Officer for iN DEMAND. "We will continue to depend on the advanced infrastructure of SES WORLD SKIES to extend our reach and meet the evolving needs of our cable affiliates."
