Box Brazil launches six channels on Intelsat 14

Integrated satellite and terrestrial network Intelsat has signed a deal with Box Brazil to distribute six channels on one of its satellites.

Box Brazil, the country’s largest independent group of pay TV channels and streaming platforms, will distribute the channels including Prime Box Brazil, Music Box Brazil, Travel Box Brazil, Fashion TV, Box, and Market on Intelsat 14 (IS-14) at 45°WL. 

The distributor is the latest in a group of programmers and broadcasters to launch linear channels on the recently announced Brazil cable neighbourhood.

The news comes after Intelsat announced an antenna seeding installation programme to increase access to cable headends across Brazil. Once complete, the programme will reach more than 99% (14.4 million) cable subscribers in the country. 

Ricardo La Guardia, Intelsat regional vice president, LATAM Sales, said: “The addition of Box Brazil Media Group to IS-14 shows how our antenna program is attracting high-value regional content to a new cable distribution neighbourhood. The content from Box Brazil further strengthens IS-14 and our position in Brazil.”

Cícero Aragon, CEO of Box Brazil Media Group, said: “IS-14 provides us with the reliable, quality solution we need for distributing content to our viewers across Brazil. With a 99% reach into Brazilian Pay-TV subscribers, we are able to maximise our reach and provide high-performance channels and entertainment content to our viewers both in Brazil and in LATAM.”
