PRINCETON. N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SES S.A. (NYSE Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG), a world-leading satellite operator announced today the addition of 4KUniverse Ultra HD programming on UHD1, a collaborative SES Ultra HD channel for North American cable operators, telcos and their audiences, unveiled earlier this year.
Mance Media’s 4KUniverse content includes documentaries, theatrical movies, experimental films, feature films and television series. The Ultra HD content will be featured on UHD1 and is delivered over SES-3, one of three SES satellites (SES-1, SES-3, and AMC-18) that comprise SES’s Ultra HD distribution neighborhood at the center of the orbital arc over North America.

In total, SES currently delivers eight Ultra HD channels globally, four of them for the North American markets (NASA TV UHD, Fashion One 4K, High 4K TV, along with UHD1).
“Mance Media and 4KUniverse bring exciting new content to the fast-growing lineup on UHD1, our collaborative 4K Ultra HD channel that serves as a venue for content owners, producers and future networks to showcase their programming as they build out their 4K Ultra HD offerings,” said Steve Corda, Vice President, Business Development North America for SES. “SES has by far the largest Ultra HD offering in North America and around the world.
