TVGE International Extends Via SES And MX1


GNQ / FRA / LUX: TVGE International, Equatorial Guinea's governmental channel, is partnering with SES and MX1 to deliver its content worldwide on both linear and nonlinear platforms.

TVGE International is a free-to-air, Spanish-speaking channel that offers local news, entertainment, and cultural programmes.

TVGE International will use satellite capacity to broadcast its 24/7 channel across Africa, Europe, and the Americas. In addition, MX1, an SES-owned subsidiary, will provide video-on-demand (VOD) services and web applications for the channel. The nonlinear distribution service, which will be the first of its kind in Equatorial Guinea, will enable viewers across the world to stream the channel live on the TVGE website or watch programmes on their phones via a dedicated application.

"This agreement with TVGE International perfectly illustrates how SES's global satellite reach combined with MX1 services is the ideal package for delivering television programming to viewers across the world, on any device, anytime, anywhere," said Clint Brown, Vice President, Sales and Market Development for Africa, SES Video. "We are proud to be part of this partnership, which confirms SES's leading role as a provider of TV broadcasting infrastructure in Africa and driver of global digitisation."

"We are very pleased to rely on SES and MX1 to distribute our channel across the world," said His Excellency Eugenio Nse Obiang, Equatorial Guinea Minister of Information Press and Radio. "We are entering the new phase in video delivery, as our content will now be distributed not only on linear TV but also on nonlinear platforms, which for us is key to ensuring we continue to reach our audience and meet evolving viewing habits. SES and MX1 are the ideal partners to achieve that goal in an efficient manner."
