Telefónica and Hispasat renew the agreement to distribute RTVE channels in Latin America

The operator will contribute spatial capacity to distribute eleven television channels and radio stations through its satellites located in 30º West

Hispasat, the Spanish satellite telecommunications operator, has closed a multiyear renewal agreement to distribute RTVE channels in Latin America with Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales (TSA).

The range of contents that RTVE broadcasts in America through Hispasat’s satellites includes an entire range of programs dedicated to information and entertainment which are transmitted through the TVE América SD and HD, 24 Horas HD, Star TVE HD and Clan HD television channels, as well as the RNE, RNE-3, RNE-5, Radio Clásica and RNE Radio Exterior radio stations.

This renewal also includes increased capacity contracted compared to the previous agreement, as it has incorporated the new TVE Internacional HD channel, which requires greater bandwidth. These channels can be received in all the countries throughout the region thanks to the coverage provided by Hispasat’s satellites in the 30º West position.

From this location, Hispasat broadcasts numerous multimedia contents to around 10,000 TV headends and more than 50 million users in Latin America, which makes it one of the leading orbital positions to distribute contents in the Ku band in the region.
