[Via Satellite 10-28-2015] Lifestyle content producer Scripps Networks Interactive has signed a strategic agreement with SES to expand and migrate its North American distribution platform to a pair of SES satellites at the center of the North American orbital arc. Scripps Networks Interactive is using a full transponder of C-band capacity on SES 1 to deliver HD content, while another C-band transponder aboard SES 3 is facilitating the distribution of SD feeds.
SES’ North America cable distribution network uses the satellites SES 1 at 101 degrees west, SES 3 at 103 degrees west, and AMC 18 at 105 degrees west to reach more than 100 million U.S. television homes. Scripps Networks Interactive is among the early movers to relocate to the platform.
