Wednesday 4 April 2018 | 15:26 CET | News
Satellite operator SES announced that the number of video households it serves topped 351 million in 2017, up from 325 million in 2016, meaning that it now delivers audiovisual content to more than 1 billion viewers worldwide. The company said its increased technical reach meant it added new countries such as Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda and Turkey last year, while expanding its coverage in the Maghreb. SES said it directly reaches 145 million TV homes plus another 147 million cable homes indirectly, while also serving 40 million IPTV homes and 18 million terrestrial homes.
