SES has so far UHD trial agreements in place with Cable America in Missouri, Golden West Telecommunications in South Dakota, MTC Cable in New York, Sjoberg’s Cable TV in Minnesota and ATMC in North Carolina. As part of the programme aimed at accelerating 4K delivery to homes across America, SES is shipping 4K/HEVC set top boxes to cable operators participating in the trials.
SES is currently carrying four UHD channels on satellites serving cable, reaching nearly 100 million homes across North America – Fashion One 4K, NASA TV UHD, High 4K TV and its own UHD1 channel.
“As millions of cable subscribers increasingly press for 4K content on their new Ultra HD TVs, some of the smallest cable operators in the US are now leading the way to bringing Ultra HD to homes across the country,” said Steve Corda, vice-president of business development in North America at SES.
“SES’s breakthrough, fully-managed Ultra HD platform is enabling us to conduct the first-ever trials, which are bound to play a key role in the national and global rollout of Ultra HD.”
