Televisa and Fox Sports Mexico sign new deals with Eutelsat

Satellite operator Eutelsat has struck a couple of new agreements with Latin American content providers, including a deal to bring Televisa content to Europe.

Grupo Televisa has chosen Eutelsat to further expand the reach of its video services in Europe.

The Mexican media giant will tap Eutelsat’s  coverage over the European continent via the Eutelsat 9B satellite to further strengthen its footprint over Europe with a new multi-year agreement.

“Televisa is committed to continuing the distribution of Televisa Networks Programming to all our affiliates and consumers in Europe. Eutelsat’s satellite gives us the ability to do so with high-quality coverage,” said Williams Aguirre, general director of satellite operations at Grupo Televisa.

José Ignacio González-Núñez, Eutelsat Americas video SVP, said: “We are pleased that Televisa, one of our most important partners, has selected Eutelsat to further expand its footprint in Europe, leveraging one of our prime video neighborhoods in the region. This is the result of a truly valuable commercial relationship between the two companies.”

Eutelsat has also struck a multi-year agreement with Fox Sports Mexico to distribute channels across Mexico via Eutelsat 117 West A.

Fox Sports Mexico delivers channels Fox Sports, Fox Sports 2, Fox Sports 3, and Fox Sports Premium to more than 15 million Mexican households. Building upon an existing partnership between parent Entity Grupo Lauman and Eutelsat, this new contract enables Fox Sports Mexico to further its growth strategy in Mexico, as well as develop other projects, according to Eutelsat.

Israel Gómez, VP Production and Operations at Fox Sports, said: “We are thrilled to have access to the technologies that Eutelsat provides. Our partnership will allow us to reach a wider audience, which creates new and exciting opportunities to continue our sustained growth. This will not only give Fox Sports the possibility to maintain its broadcasting quality but also to extend the presence of the brand throughout multiple households.”
