Luxembourg – SES announced that a renewal of its contract with Sony Entertainment Television (SET) Asia has been signed. The new agreement will enable SET Asia to serve its subscribers in the UK and Ireland at SES’ prime orbital arc of 28.2/ 28.5 degrees East, as well as distribute its platform to affiliates across Europe.
SES serves almost 13 million satellite households across the UK and Ireland from its constellation of four satellites positioned at the orbital arc of 28.2/ 28.5.
