HISPASAT, Red Eléctrica Group’s Spanish telecommunications satellite operator, has renewed its agreement with Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales (TSA), a company belonging to the Telefónica group that specialises in audiovisual services and solutions, to broadcast the contents of the AMC Networks International channels for Spain and Portugal. The three-year agreement will offer subscribers in these countries 14 channels that belong to AMC Networks International Southern Europe, the largest independent thematic TV channel producer in Spain and Portugal.
HISPASAT currently distributes audiovisual contents from its 30º West orbital position to more than 10,000 cable headends, which means that more than 65 million homes receive content thanks to HISPASAT’s fleet.
José Antonio Guerra, Commercial Office and EMEA Sales Director at HISPASAT, stated that “we are very proud that both TSA and AMC Networks have once again placed their trust in HISPASAT. Our extensive experience in the audiovisual distribution business and the ideal position of HISPASAT’s satellites to provide these types of services in Spanish and Portuguese always guarantees optimal performance for operators and platforms that want to distribute their contents”.
For Francisco Panduro, EMEA Sales Manager at TSA, “relying on the coverage and performance of HISPASAT’s satellites in the 30º West position was the natural option to continue distributing the AMC Networks channels in Spain and Portugal with the highest level of quality and reliability”.
José Nabais CTO of AMC Networks International Southern Europe, stated that “thanks to this agreement renewal, the distribution service for 14 of our channels in Spain and Portugal will continue to count on the backing of two market leaders, TSA and HISPASAT, to keep offering the same great results as in previous years”.
