Under the multi-year agreement, Sonlife Broadcasting Network will utilise capacity on Astra 1L, leveraging the wide reach of the key orbital slot 19.2 degrees East. With four satellites at this orbital slot, SES Video broadcasts more than 900 channels to over 110 million TV households.
“We have been working with Sonlife Broadcasting Network for many years, and we are very pleased to continue to provide them with our services,” said Norbert Hölzle, SVP, Commercial Europe, at SES Video.
“This extension agreement reaffirms their confidence in our ability to deliver highly-reliable broadcasting services.”
The SonLife Broadcasting Network is operated by Jimmy Swaggart Ministries in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
“Our partnership with SES Video offers millions of viewers throughout Europe the opportunity to hear and receive the gospel through SBN, and we couldn’t be more pleased with these results,” said Rev. Jimmy Swaggart.
