SES has announced that German and Austrian pay-TV provider Sky Deutschland has secured additional capacity for Ultra HD broadcasts on ASTRA at 19.2 degrees East.
Ultra HD delivers four times the resolution of today’s HD TV, providing more dramatic action for sporting events and a more compelling experience for premium movies and documentaries.
“At Sky Deutschland, we believe in being innovative with our offerings and providing our customers with the best television experience, and have therefore been investing in Ultra HD. The agreement with SES gives us planning security in terms of capacity so that we can continue to develop Ultra HD and get it ready for the market,” says Holger Ensslin, Chief Officer of Legal, Regulatory Affairs and Distribution at Sky Deutschland.
