NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, has selected SES to provide 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) satellite distribution for its production of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games. SES will use the satellite platform to distribute the NBC Olympics HDR feed to its affiliates throughout the US, using the SES-1 satellite located at 101 degrees West. 

As part of the implementation, SES has provided preconfigured satellite receivers to the affiliates that will be receiving the HDR feed. SES’s 4K platform provides multichannel video program distributors (MVPDs) in the US access to its bouquet of linear 4K programming. NBC Olympics will distribute 4K HDR coverage, provided by Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) and Japan’s NHK, to US distribution partners. The 4K coverage will also be available on delay.
