SES in Canal 3 distribution deal
SES has signed a multi-year deal to distribute Canal 3 TV services across West Africa.
SES will be providing broadcast capacity to deliver a Canal 3 pay-TV bouquet in Hausa, Savanna, Wolof and French languages across West Africa. Canal Holdings will be delivering its TV offerings to its direct-to-home subscribers via SES’s Astra 2G satellite at 28.2 degrees East, and distributing the same channels to Benin and Niger via the SES-5 satellite located at 5 degrees East.
This agreement provides Canal Holdings with extensive West Africa coverage and the optimal technical solution.
