Insight TV joins SES ultra HD platform in North America

Tuesday 25 October 2016 | 11:05 CET | News
SES entered into a strategic capacity and playout agreement with Netherlands-based company Tern to deliver the interactive ultra HD (UHD) channel, Insight TV, to television platforms and audiences across North America. Insight TV is the latest in a series of channels to join SES's 4K ultra HD distribution neighbourhood aboard a trio of advanced satellites (SES-1, SES-3 and AMC-18) located at the centre of the orbital arc over the region. Tern launched its Insight TV Ultra HD and HD channels a year ago across Europe on SES satellites.
