7.tifPan-regional pay TV operator M7 Group has tapped satellite provider SES for additional capacity to offer additional HD channels in central and eastern Europe.

The operator’s new deal with SES, which gives it additional capacity on the Astra 3B satellite at 23.5° East, will enable it to host all HD channels of the Czech public broadcaster Ceská Televize, as well as new HD channels for Skylink, M7’s DTH pay TV platform for the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

“This recent agreement with SES will enable us to satisfy the existing and growing consumer demand for better picture quality and innovative new programs in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, as well as allow us to further reinforce our positions in these highly competitive markets. SES has been our reliable partner in delivering a quality TV experience to our viewers, and we are looking forward to continuing this fruitful relationship,” said Hans Troelstra, CEO of M7 Group.

“M7 Group has been a long-standing partner, and we are pleased that our collaboration continues to grow,” said Ferdinand Kayser, chief commercial officer at SES.

“M7 has a leading position in the high definition broadcasting segment of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and we are happy to continue contributing to this success by providing our reliable satellite services.”
