German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle has signed an agreement with SES Americom-New Skies for capacity aboard their Digital C platform.

Deutsche Welle will use 4.5 Mbps of capacity on AMC-1 to deliver programming to American cable headends for its German, Spanish and English-speaking television programmes and its radio services.

“SES satellites have the reach and reliability we need to deliver our television and radio content virtually anywhere, anytime,” said Guido Baumhauer, Deutsche Welle’s managing director of strategy, marketing and distribution, in a statement.
