Frontier is the latest multichannel video programming distributor (MVPD) to join SES’s milestone trials aimed at accelerating Ultra HD delivery to homes across North America. SES has a growing number of cable and television system operators currently evaluating the satellite-based Ultra HD solution in an effort to provide the Ultra HD programming to their subscribers this year.
SES’s managed Ultra HD platform is delivered over dedicated satellite bandwidth, which provides a much higher quality viewer experience compared to current Internet-delivered 4K offerings susceptible to bottlenecks, buffering and network congestion. Currently home to nine linear Ultra HD channels, the platform provides the largest bundle of Ultra HD programming in North America.
“We are optimistic that SES’s innovative, pre-packaged Ultra HD solution will allow for a smooth transition of Ultra HD delivery to Frontier subscriber homes nationwide,” said Steve Ward, SVP of Video Technology & Content for Frontier Communications.
“MVPDs across the country have been extremely impressed with our Ultra HD channel lineup and how satellite is enabling them to leap frog to the latest transmission technologies in order to accelerate the delivery of Ultra HD to their subscriber homes,” explained Steve Corda, Vice President of Business Development for SES in North America.
