World Skies extends SSVC deal

SES World Skies has announced that the Services Sound and Vision Corporation (SSVC) has extended agreements to deliver TV and radio programming to British troops around the world.

The non-profit organisation will use two World Skies satellites, taking 30MHz on NSS-12 and 27MHz on NSS-806, to distribute a mix of news, sports and entertainment channels from The British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS) to remote military installations. British Forces across Africa and the Atlantic Ocean region, including forces in The Falkland Islands, Belize and British Navy ships in international waters are within reach of the SSVC’s satellite-delivered content, according to World Skies.
