Satellite operator SES has announced a new multi-year agreement with MediaScape Inc in the Philippines to provide additional capacity on the SES-7 satellite at the prime orbital location of 108.2 degrees East.
MediaScape will use transponders on both SES-7 and NSS-11, satellites that are co-located at the same orbital location.
This additional satellite capacity will enable the operator to ramp up Cignal TV's Direct-to-Home (DTH) offering to 15 high definition (HD) channels and 51 standard definition (SD) channels, up from 9 HD channels and 37 SD channels in 2011.
Cignal currently serves over 250,000 subscribers across the country.
