Hispasat & Media Broadcast Satellite Sign Agreement

Hispasat and Media Broadcast

Spanish satellite operator Hispasat and German service provider Media Broadcast Satellite have signed an agreement at IBC to provide 4K content distribution services in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Thanks to the agreement, the companies will launch a new platform combining the capacities of Media Broadcast Satellite’s teleport in Usingen (Germany) with the high output of the Hispasat satellites on the 30° West position.

The platform will incorporate a business model specifically dedicated to 4K content providers for which a flexible risk sharing has been developed in order to avoid the entry barriers of content providers in terms of distribution costs. Commenting on the new platform, Christian Fleischhauer, Managing Direcor of Media Broadcast Satellite, said: “This cooperation provides the perfect opportunity for broadcasters to grow their audience and distribute their content in a superb 4K quality.”
