Cheyenne, Wyoming, 1 June 2018 – Sports fans across the US will be able to watch the first Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship since 1889 in Ultra HD, which will be delivered to Cable Pay TV providers and their 4K subscribers through iNDEMAND Pay-Per-View (PPV) via the SES Ultra HD platform.

SES announced today that the event, produced by Multivision Media, will be broadcast live from the Cheyenne Ice and Events Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming on 2 June at 9 pm ET. The 4K event will be available nationally to cable and IPTV providers signed on to SES’s pre-packaged 4K solution.

The 4K event will be delivered on the SES Events channel, which is part of the UHD line-up hosted on the SES Ultra HD platform. This channel is dedicated to live events and is readily available for Pay TV operators in North America who would like to broadcast in 4K. Past sporting events that were delivered in UHD on the SES Events channel include Bellator: Sonnen vs. Silva Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

The all-in-one Ultra HD offering, currently serving close to 40 Pay TV systems with a collective audience of more than 40 million subscribers, combines a growing channel line-up, satellite distribution, and reception gear. In addition to the SES channel dedicated to events, the line-up features Fashion One 4K, NASA TV UHD, 4K UNIVERSE, INSIGHT TV, C4K360, Funbox UHD, Travelxp 4K, Nature Relaxation 4K, The Country Network, UHD1, and the SES 4K channel, a developmental incubator for emerging content producers. With this bouquet of channels, SES hosts the largest single source of linear 4K content in the world.

“Events like the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship are immersive building blocks toward an exciting future in Ultra HD television,” said John Schultz, Vice President of Broadcast Operations for iNDEMAND. “The partnership between iNDEMAND and SES has been a tremendous driver behind the emergence of 4K pay-per-view sporting events, which offer up a compelling Ultra HD television viewing experience.”  

“Live sports are accelerating demand for Ultra HD content like never before, as millions of consumers want to see 4K sports action on their new Ultra HD TV screens. The SES Ultra HD platform has broadcast the Olympics in 4K HDR to Pay TV providers and subscribers and now, together with iNDEMAND, SES is delivering yet another immersive event, in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, which is bound to drive demand for 4K TV and the SES Ultra HD platform,” said Steve Corda, Vice President of Media Platforms, SES Video in North America. “The SES Events channel is readily available for live events to virtually every Pay TV operator across North America.”

  • New Direct-to-home Satellite TV Bouquet for the Former Yugoslavian Countries from Telekom Srbija and SES

    Viewers in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro will be able to receive compelling content from SES’ orbital location at 23.5 degrees East

    Luxembourg, 15 November 2018 -- Viewers in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro will soon have access to new content delivered by Telekom Srbija from SES’ key orbital location at 23.5 degrees East. SES announced today that the main telecommunication operator in Serbia has signed a multi-year and multi-transponder contract for service on its Astra satellite to launch Telekom Srbija’s new Direct-to-Home (DTH) platform which will start broadcasting in all three countries simultaneously mid-December.

    The new DTH platform will enable Telekom Srbija to broadcast more than 150 channels, including up to 30 in High Definition (HD). All Serbian public television channels will also be available on the platform, bringing a complete selection of content to viewers in the market. Additional channels will be offered as Free-to-Air for viewers.  

    Viewers will also benefit from technology improvements in their home. Telekom Srbija has chosen cardless set-top boxes for this service, and for those that don’t have reception equipment already this platform will be accessible using a small 60cm dish.

    Telekom Srbija, a long-term partner of SES, began working with SES in 2011 and earlier this year moved their complete channel bouquet to SES satellites at SES’ 23.5 degrees East orbital location, ensuring the largest possible audience reach. SES serves nearly 2.9 million DTH homes in Europe from 23.5 degrees East.

    “We are pleased to be launching such an important DTH platform with SES,” said Marijana Vukasinovic, Head of Content Management at Telekom Srbija. “As we embark on our most ambitious project yet, we have complete confidence thanks to the quality of service and experience SES brings to the table. We look forward to fostering growth in the local broadcasting landscape by bringing a powerful new platform to viewers.”

    “The former Yugoslavian countries are a dynamic growth market that SES has been focused on for several years, and we are glad to be strengthening our relationship with Telekom Srbija,” said Martin Ornass-Kubacki, Vice President, Central Eastern Europe, Sales at SES Video. “Our orbital location at 23.5 degrees East is SES' fastest-growing orbital position for central and eastern Europe and the Benelux countries, with many pan-European operators broadcasting their content from there.”
