SPI International chooses Amos-3

AMOS-uplink1Pay TV channel provider SPI International has contracted Israel-based satellite operator Spacecom to provide capacity for distribution of SPI’s channels to Europe via the Amos-3 satellite at 4° West. 

Spacecom will provide SPI with uplink, encryption and capacity in a multi-year deal. The satellite operator is working with TTComm, its Polish partner, to provide the service.

SPI International is using Amos-3 to provide six HD and five SD channels to Poland’s cable companies and DTH operators. The company’s services in Poland include Kino Polska, the country’s number one movie/TV series channel.

“By working with Spacecom’s Amos-3, we are able to expand our presence in Poland and enlarge the audiences we want to reach. Kino Polska is a highly important element of our international business and we look forward to strengthening its core,” reported Loni Farhi president of SPI International.

Jacob Keret, Spacecom senior vice president sales Europe, North America and Middle East, remarked, “Amos-3 provides high quality service on powerful platforms around Europe and the addition of SPI International in Poland is an important element for our growth in Eastern Europe. We are also proud to provide more than just capacity to SPI International by bringing them a full service uplink plus encryption.”
