QVC UK Ensures Continuity of its Retail Channels Across the British Isles with SES

13/09/2018

Written on 13 Sep 2018

QVC audiences in the UK and Ireland to benefit from the extension of direct-to-home (DTH) broadcast of its retail channels provided by SES and MX1

Luxembourg, 13 September 2018 -- British and Irish viewers will continue to receive QVC's range of retail channels as the result of a multi-year renewal agreement signed with SES, including services from MX1.

The new agreement covers QVC's continued lease of capacity from SES' ASTRA 2G satellite and complementary ground services such as encoding, fibre, backup services, and uplinking from SES and SES' wholly-owned video subsidiary, MX1. This one-stop shop combination of video distribution and services enables QVC to ease its operational processes.

This important renewal is a continuation of the service SES has been delivering to QVC in UK and Ireland since the 1990s. Today this relationship is global with QVC relying on SES to deliver their retail channel range in multiple markets around the world.

We have relied on SES' services for over 20 years and are pleased to extend our partnership further, said Brian Farrelly, VP Content & UK Commerce Platforms of QVC UK. Using a full service package is an important element in our strategy to enable us to reach our customers in the UK and Ireland reliably and efficiently.

We are pleased to have concluded this renewal with QVC which benefits from the comprehensive mix of services that SES and MX1 provide, much of which is performed at our Betzdorf and Munich facilities, said Ferdinand Kayser, Chief Executive Officer of SES Video. The orbital position of 28.2 / 28.5 degrees East is our prime neighbourhood to serve this key market area, where we distribute video to over 19 million TV homes in the UK and Ireland.

About SES SES is the world's leading satellite operator with over 70 satellites in two different orbits, Geostationary Orbit (GEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). It provides a diverse range of customers with global video distribution and data connectivity services through two business units: SES Video and SES Networks. SES Video reaches over 351 million TV homes, through Direct-to-Home (DTH) platforms and cable, terrestrial, and IPTV networks globally. The SES Video portfolio includes MX1, a leading media service provider offering a full suite of innovative services for both linear and digital distribution, and the ASTRA satellite system, which has the largest DTH television reach in Europe. SES Networks provides global managed data services, connecting people in a variety of sectors including telecommunications, maritime, aeronautical, and energy, as well as governments and institutions across the world. The SES Networks portfolio includes GovSat, a 50/50 public-private partnership between SES and the Luxembourg government, and O3b, the only non-geostationary system delivering fibre-like broadband services today.
