Intelsat S.A. [I] -0.07 (-1.67%) recently confirmed that they will be providing Australian communities with satellite service through an agreement with TV Plus. Intelsat S.A. operates the world’s first Globalized Network and is a pioneer in integrated satellite communications, and the deal is a multi-year arrangement. TV Plus will employ Ku-band satellite services on Intelsat 19, and viewers in Australia and New Zealand will receive global content that was otherwise inaccessible. Intelsat reaches more than 37 million pay-tv subscribers and is also a leading DTH provider in the Asia-Pacific region.

“Intelsat’s satellite services give us the foundation we need to innovate and stay ahead of our competitors by using the latest technologies to deliver the best viewing experience for our customers,” said John Jeremic, Director at TV Plus. “We have worked with Intelsat for more than 10 years and have seen firsthand how its world-class video neighborhood has helped expand our audience reach. We’re able to cost-efficiently add more channels to the platform and deliver more programming to our viewers while maintaining the same amount of satellite bandwidth.”

Intelsat’s Managing Director of Asia-Pacific sales Terry Bleakley shares Jeremic’s enthusiasm for the endeavor. “There is a lot of opportunity for diverse programming in the Asia-Pacific region, and consumers are demanding quicker access and more viewing options. Working with TV Plus and building upon the strong relationship we’ve established over the past several years has given us a greater understanding of the demand and the type of cost-effective satellite services it needs to reach a broader audience, with more high-quality programming options,” said Bleakley.0
