Dish Mexico selected SES’s Online Video Platform (OVP) solution for its ability to seamlessly integrate linear channels, third-party and on-demand content from multiple sources, eliminating the need to switch between applications and enhancing the viewing experience.

Additionally, SES and Dish Mexico have extended their decade-long DTH partnership. Dish Mexico will continue leveraging its dedicated SES satellite capacity via the QuetzSat-1 satellite to further disrupt the local TV market with affordable pay-TV services throughout the region.

“Dish Mexico and SES first introduced an affordable DTH service to the region nearly a decade ago, and today we’re leveraging SES’s trusted technical expertise to offer a powerful DTH-OTT combination bound to redefine the viewing experience for our two-million-plus subscribers,” said Roger Quintin, GM / Director at Dish Mexico. “While the OVP arena is crowded with solutions, what set SES’s OVP solution apart is SES’s proven track record and unmatched experience in global video delivery that will enable Dish Mexico to offer unprecedented content capabilities and choices to our customers.”

“We are delighted to be a one-stop shop to Dish Mexico as they look into providing the best TV experience for their subscribers. Our OVP solution seamlessly combines linear channels and on-demand content with third-party content providers over the SES gateway, providing Dish Mexico with a powerful channel line-up and unrivalled competitive edge across the market,” said Steve Collar, CEO of SES. “This combination of DTH-OVP services is the result of a longstanding collaborative relationship between two companies who firmly believe in delivering tailored content and services to growing TV viewers.”

SES’s OVP platform allows for a diverse bouquet of linear channels and thousands of hours of on-demand content to be ingested and managed using the SES 360 unified media platform. Dish Mexico will leverage the highly scalable service to tailor its channel line-up and dynamic ad content as needed to meet viewer profiles and preferences on the fly.
