SES's Ultra HD platform was selected by two US multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) to launch commercial linear Ultra HD services to cable and IPTV subscriber homes using SES's satellite-delivered, pre-packaged, Ultra HD platform. Marquette-Adams of Oxford, Wisconsin and Highlands Cable Group of Highlands, North Carolina licensed the SES-provided Ultra HD programming through Vivicast Media and released Ultra HD offerings after testing the SES platform. Additional cable and IPTV operators are also close to launching their own milestone Ultra HD services on SES's system.
