Under the terms of the agreement, Telered will utilise MEASAT-3a for the distribution of the Viva TV and Pinoy Box Office (PBO) channels across the Philippines. The agreement also contains an option for additional capacity to support Telered’s planned future expansion of video distribution services in the Philippines market.
“Telered is excited to embark upon the next stage of its growth plans. With this capacity, we will be able to serve local and regional programmers for their local distribution requirements,” says Redentor Laset, President of Telered. “Our decision to enter into partnership with MEASAT was also on account of its ability to provide a flexible working approach customised to our requirement.”
Raj Malik, MEASAT’s Senior Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, adds: “MEASAT is pleased to support Telered’s plans to provide new distribution channels and playout services to the Philippines market. We look forward to continue supporting Telered’s expansion plans and carry exciting new content to audiences across the Philippines.”
