SES EXTENDS CAPACITY CONTRACT WITH K-NET IN WEST AFRICA
Multi-year contract renewal will build the strongest video neighbourhood in the region and continue to support the Ghana digital switchover process
SES (Euronext Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG), a world-leading satellite operator, announced today that it has signed a multi-year renewal contract with K-NET, an ICT and Telecoms platform services company based in Ghana. This new extension agreement will continue to support the rollout of Ghana direct-to-home (DTH) and digital terrestrial television (DTT) services and, in addition, bring data services for corporate and GSM networks via SES’s prime orbital position at 28.2 degrees East.
K-Net is SES’s partner and teleport service provider in Ghana (see press release from 24 May 2016 ). This renewal will ensure 100% coverage for DTH and DTT deployment in the region, which will allow the Ghanaian population to receive local and international content via a unified bouquet of high quality free-to-air (FTA) and free-to-view (FTV) channels.
"SES is proud to be K-NET's partner of choice over the years and at the forefront of the digital switchover process of one of the fastest developing nations in Africa. The service will provide 100% coverage for Ghana’s digitalisation through DTH and DTT and gives viewers the opportunity to receive high quality TV throughout the country, regardless of their locations. It will also give them access to multiple local, regional and national channels," said Ibrahima Guimba-Saidou, Senior Vice President, SES Commercial in Africa.
