[Via Satellite 07-16-2015] Sky Deutschland, a leading German and Austrian pay TV-provider, has secured additional capacity from SES for Ultra-HD broadcasts on Astra at 19.2 degrees east. Ultra-HD delivers four times the resolution of today’s HD TV, along with other improvements in visual quality. Europe is a frontrunner for Ultra-HD, along with North America and parts of Asia.
“The agreement with SES gives us planning security in terms of capacity so that we can continue to develop Ultra-HD and get it ready for the market,” said Holger Ensslin, chief officer of legal, regulatory affairs and distribution at Sky Deutschland.
