Mola expands SES partnership as operator grows OTT business

Indonesian entertainment network operator Mola has announced a partnership with satellite operator SES. 

The deal will see Mola engage SES 360 Unified Media Platform to bolster its over-the-top (OTT) content services across Indonesia and the wider Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. 

Mola will leverage the web-based SES 360 for an end-to-end fully customised orchestration of content management and distribution services which includes formatting, processing and delivering Video-on-Demand (VOD) content to a wide variety of platforms with the required metadata. 

Mola will also use the SES 360 platform to manage, deliver, and monetise content for multiple linear and online platforms. SES 360 promises to reduce time and resource expenditure. 

This new agreement builds on a pre-existing relationship with Mola that was first established in 2017 to support the surging demand in Indonesia. Since January 2020, SES has supported Mola in broadcasting nearly 6,000 events, totalling more than 17,350 hours of signal acquisition and close to 3,000 hours inserted live into Mola’s channels. 

Ching Ping Lee, chief technology and operations officer at Mola, said: “We are excited to be strengthening our partnership with SES, especially as demand for OTT content peaks. SES has proven to be a reliable partner, with its expansive technology infrastructure and dedicated support team. By working directly with them now, we can better look into jointly delivering enhanced viewing experiences for our audiences on a pan-regional level.”

Deepak Mathur, executive vice president of Video Global Sales at SES, said: “The Asian market is certainly one to watch, and we are proud to support one of the biggest sports events providers in the region. This partnership reinforces our commitment to supporting our customers to deliver premium quality content at industry-best levels, regardless of the platform or device of choice, so they can reach millions of their audiences reliably and sustainably.”
