SES extends capacity deal with K-Net

SES uplink antennaSatellite operator SES has signed a multi-year renewal contract with Ghana-based communications technology provider, K-NET.

With the extended deal, SES and K-NET will continue to support the rollout of Ghana DTH and DTT services and bring data services for corporate and GSM networks via SES’s prime orbital position at 28.2° East.

SES said the extended deal will ensure 100% coverage for direct-to-home (DTH) and digital terrestrial television (DTT) deployment in the region, allowing the Ghanaian population to receive content via a unified bouquet of free channels.

The deal comes a week after SES’s media services arm, SES Platform Services, formed a joint venture with K-Net to bring content to Ghanaian homes via DTH satellite TV and digital-terrestrial TV.
