Dish Mexico turns to SES for DTH and OTT channel integration

Dish Mexico has announced a partnership with SES to leverage the satellite operator’s direct-to-home (DTH) and over-the-top (OTT) offerings.

The pay TV operator said that it has selected SES’s Online Video Platform (OVP) solution due to its ability to integrate linear channels, third-party and on-demand content from multiple sources. 

SES said that the new multi-year agreements will add over US$85 million in secured backlog for its video business.

SES and Dish Mexico have also extended their decade-long DTH partnership. Dish Mexico will continue leveraging its dedicated SES satellite capacity via the QuetzSat-1 satellite.

Roger Quintin, GM / Director at Dish Mexico, said: “Dish Mexico and SES first introduced an affordable DTH service to the region nearly a decade ago, and today we’re leveraging SES’s trusted technical expertise to offer a powerful DTH-OTT combination bound to redefine the viewing experience for our two-million-plus subscribers. While the OVP arena is crowded with solutions, what set SES’s OVP solution apart is SES’s proven track record and unmatched experience in global video delivery that will enable Dish Mexico to offer unprecedented content capabilities and choices to our customers.”

Steve Collar, CEO of SES, said: “We are delighted to be a one-stop shop to Dish Mexico as they look into providing the best TV experience for their subscribers. Our OVP solution seamlessly combines linear channels and on-demand content with third-party content providers over the SES gateway, providing Dish Mexico with a powerful channel line-up and unrivalled competitive edge across the market. This combination of DTH-OVP services is the result of a longstanding collaborative relationship between two companies who firmly believe in delivering tailored content and services to growing TV viewers.”
