Intelsat, the worlds leading provider of fixed satellite services, announced it signed a contract with Telefnica Servicios Audiovisuales (TSA), the broadcast unit of Spains Telefonica S.A., for capacity on the Intelsat 905 satellite (IS-905), located at 335.5?

The IS-905 satellite currently transmits some of the most in-demand, Spanish-language programming from leading broadcasters to thousands of cable headends throughout this region. Under the terms of the agreement, Teuve will use the IS-905 capacity to distribute its 11 channels to its affiliates; six movie channels (CINESTAR, EXTREME, MGM, SOMOS, CINEMATK and CANAL 18); and five entertainment channels (NATURA, BUZZ, BUZZ ROJO, PACHA and KIDSCO). All of its programming will be distributed through different cable networks in Spain and reach 2 million homes.
