The multi-transponder contract renewal extends SES and CANAL+ relationship to the end of the decade. It enables SES to support the French pay-TV operator in broadcasting its high-quality bouquets to millions of households around the world via 19.2 degrees East, 23.5 degrees East and 22 degrees West. The new contract represents additional secured backlog of over EUR 230 million and includes options for additional capacity and extensions.

Partners with SES since 1995, CANAL+ will continue to utilise satellite capacity to broadcast bouquets of channels in ultra high definition (UHD), high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) for its various businesses to reach over 10 million TV households via SES’s orbital positions:

  • ASTRA’s prime orbital position 19.2 degrees East for distribution of the CANAL+ premium pay-tv bouquet in France;
  • ASTRA’s prime orbital position 19.2 degrees East for distribution of TNTSAT, the free-to-view digital terrestrial television satellite television offering in France;
  • ASTRA’s prime orbital position 23.5 degrees East and 19.2 degrees East for CANAL+’s subsidiary, the Luxembourg-based M7 which operates a series of independent pay-TV platforms across the Benelux and Central European region;
  • SES-4 at 22 degrees West for distribution of the CANAL+ Afrique bouquet across Africa

“Extending our partnership with SES was a natural choice, since we have a long and successful partnership in delivering superior quality video experiences to diverse audiences around the world. This agreement across three orbital slots demonstrates that satellite is at heart of our pay-tv operations throughout the world. We look forward to many more years of working together to ensure we reach the widest possible TV audiences,” said Jacques du Puy, CEO, CANAL+ International.

“CANAL+ is an iconic global company and brand that evokes quality, innovation and outstanding content and is among our longest standing and most valued customers. We are incredibly proud of the trust that CANAL+ has placed in SES and it underscores our mutual belief in the power of satellite to broadcast the best content, in the highest definition to the broadest base of subscribers on a global basis. This agreement ensures that we will continue to serve the neighbourhoods that we have built together for the next decade and beyond.” said Steve Collar, CEO at SES.

New Report From Arthur D. Little Highlights Full Potential of Artificial Intelligence for Business2.12.2021 13:03:00 CET | Press release

Arthur D. Little (ADL) has launched a new report which examines how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to its full potential in the context of business decision making. The report – ‘From Insight to Impact’ looks at how companies can use AI more holistically rather than to just perform discrete functions and includes real world use cases where AI has demonstrated its ability to powerfully augment and improve business processes. In a survey conducted for the report, only 16% of respondents believed that their organizations were benefitting from the full potential of AI technology. For the great majority, AI applications remain stuck at the pilot stage or are limited to just specific applications such as online customer interaction. The survey also showed that concerns still exist around the more widespread use of AI, with loss of control, lack of transparency, and the perceived threat of job losses all flagged as potential issues. ADL’s report has been produced to cut through both
