SES Secures €75 Million of Multi-Year Video Contract Extensions
SES announced today that it has signed multi-year capacity agreements totalling more than €75 million in backlog with multiple German private and public broadcasters. The majority of renewals span several years and will enable millions of satellite TV households across Germany to continue watching SD and HD content, reinforcing SES’s position as the leading global content connectivity provider.
The renewal deals include both private and public broadcasters who are looking to maintain the broadest reach, highest quality and maximum reliability for their video content delivery, including:
- QVC Germany – the live shopping broadcaster is renewing both SD and HD channels
- Seven.One Entertainment Group – the broadcaster’s channel offering continues to be available in SD
- Media Broadcast Satellite GmbH (MBS) – the provider of global satellite and terrestrial communications services is renewing capacity for SD channels
- Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF) – the public broadcaster is renewing its HD offering
- HIGH VIEW – recently signed an extension with SES and has just launched additional channels
SES’s latest video contract extensions illustrate how both private and public broadcasters across Germany are leveraging SES’s satellites at the prime 19.2 degrees East orbital slot to directly reach more than 17 million satellite TV homes, surpassing other satellite or terrestrial operators in the country.
“Whether for news, entertainment, live sports, shopping or public service, audiences continue to demand access to a wide range of high-quality video content,” said Norbert Hölzle, Global Head of Media at SES. “The size of these deals and length of the contracts highlight that for both private and public broadcasters the most efficient way to reach millions of households and build the biggest audience is through satellite – today and well into the future.”

Inotrem Announces Publication of Two Key Articles on Nangibotide Phase II Programs in Peer-reviewed Medical Journals1.6.2023 09:00:00 EEST | Press release
Inotrem, an advanced clinical stage biotech company specializing in immunotherapies for acute and chronic inflammatory conditions, announced today the publication of the results of two phase 2 clinical studies in the The Lancet Respiratory Medicine and in eClinicalMedicine. The first article presents the ASTONISH Phase 2b trial in septic shock patients and the second one the ESSENTIAL Phase 2 trial for the treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients. Both studies reveal that the TREM-1 pathway plays a central role in major life-threatening immune dysregulations caused by severe infections, whether it is septic shock or severe forms of COVID-19.
