Brazil's Rede Novo Tempo de Comunicacao, a popular full-time religious network, has renewed and expanded a long-term capacity agreement with SES .

The multi-year, multi-million dollar deal involves the distribution of its video and radio channels to audiences throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, North America and Western Europe. Under its terms, the global broadcaster will continue to rely on SES' NSS-806 satellite to reach viewers until early 2013, when the SES-6 satellite will take over.
The NSS-806 provides high-powered coverage of Latin America and access to North America and Western Europe. SES-6 meanwhile will occupy a prime orbital position at 319.5 degrees east, and is one of seven new satellites to be launched during an extensive fleet investment programme primarily aimed at meeting increasing demand for capacity over emerging markets.
"Over the past nine years Rede Novo Tempo has dramatically increased its audience reach with SES and the NSS-806 satellite," said Antonio Oliveira Tostes, Rede Novo Tempo networks director. "We continue to rely on SES' satellites and expertise, as our Rede Novo Tempo network grows and becomes part of Latin America's leading religious broadcasting community. SES-6 provides our strategic platform for future growth."
