[Via Satellite 3-17-2015] Intelsat and The Space Connection, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telesat Canada, announced a new, multi-year capacity agreement. Under the deal, The Space Connection expanded its capacity commitment on Intelsat’s Galaxy 17 satellite located at 91 degrees west and renewed services on Intelsat’s Galaxy 3C satellite located at 95 degrees west.
Galaxy 17 is a sports neighborhood within Intelsat’s Galaxy fleet, with marquee sports programming transmitted to cable head-ends throughout North America. By renewing and expanding its agreement with Intelsat, The Space Connection will continue to provide existing customers with regional and national sports content, as well as leverage the additional capacity to expand its distribution reach in a cable distribution neighborhood that has a 98 percent penetration of cable head-ends. The agreement also secures continuity of service for The Space Connection’s current customers at Galaxy 3C.
