More Cable Operators Using SES Backbone

08 августа 2007
No matter how badly they'd like, cable companies just can't operate without the help of a few satellites. Case in point, the most recent news from SES Americom where two more major cable providers have joined the commercial satellite company's triple-feed antenna program for high-def offerings. SES Americom said that CableOne and Cox Communications are among the latest U.S. cable operators to join its triple-feed antenna program, which enables operators to access new high-definition programming via the company's HD-PRIME service. These cable companies are just the latest members of SES' list of operators that already includes Comcast, Bresnan, Brighthouse, RCN and many other independents, the company said.

According to SES, the triple-feed program provides qualified cable ops with free satellite antennas and equipment at each of their headends to receive programming from three Americom satellites. The satellites being utilized for the program include SES' newest AMC-18, and are all key elements of the HD-PRIME service.

Qualified operators who join the program receive antennas manufactured by Patriot Antenna Systems. Depending on the location of their headends, operators will be equipped with a 3.8, 4.5 or 5.0 meter Patriot antenna fitted with the triple-feed receiving assembly, the company said.
