SES Platform Services will continue to provide content management and playout services for the pay-tv channels of Fox Networks Group Germany.
The German technical services subsidiary of satellite operator SES and the broadcast group have extended their collaboration through a new multi-year contract.
SES Platform Services already provided playout services for Fox and Nat Geo People. Under the new agreement, the company will also handle playout services for National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild. SES Platform Services will continue to provide content management services for all four channels.
Fox Networks Group Germany is using SES Platform Services’ cloud-based Fluid MAM to supply linear and non-linear platforms with its channels and content. The media management and logistics solution allows the broadcast group to monitor and control the processes via an interactive dashboard.
“We have worked with SES Platform Services since 2009 and are pleased to be able to extend our partnership,” said Mauro Panella, vice president broadcast operations at Fox Networks Group Italy, Germany and UK. “This agreement is significant not only for our German speaking market, but also for the whole of Europe, and marks the beginning of what we are confident will be a long and fruitful relationship.”
