Sky and SES renew deal to 2027

Sky has extended its contract with SES for satellite capacity through to 2027.

The deal will add over €90 million in secured backlog, with SES delivering Sky UK’s channels in a mix of SD, HD and UHD from the 28.2/28.5 degrees East orbital slots to the operator’s subscribers across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.

28.2/28.5 degrees East reaches 12 million homes in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.

By the end of the contract, Sky UK will have been an SES customer continuously for almost four decades.

Patrick Behar, Chief Business Officer at Sky UK, said: “We’re pleased to continue working with SES, a world leader in satellite provision. SES has been a valued partner to Sky for decades and this agreement represents the latest step in a long and successful relationship.”

Steve Collar, CEO at SES, said: “This is a significant, multi-transponder, multi-year renewal founded on SES’s decades of delivering a flawless and immersive TV viewing experience to Sky UK customers. It also underlines the continued and rising importance of satellites in delivering a premium content-viewing experience to end customers virtually everywhere.”
