Optus, Seven Network extend satellite contract

By

Optus Satellite has extended its services contract for a further four years with the Seven television network for transponder capacity on the Optus D1 satellite.

Under the extension, the contract will run to 2021 and capacity requirements have been expanded from 18MHz to 27MHz.

Optus Satellite has provided satellite broadcast support to Seven Network since 1986 and the financial terms of the contract re-signing have not been disclosed.

Optus supports Seven with the ability to flexibly move television content between sites, deliver outside broadcast services and network resilience and continuity in the event of a terrestrial failure.

Paul Sheridan, Optus Satellite vice-president, said, “The Optus-Seven Network satellite partnership has been one of our most enduring and trusted relationships. Our role to deliver critical broadcast support has been built over three decades of conviction and collaboration.

“We are thrilled to expand on our commitment to provide service quality excellence to the Seven Network.”

David Watts, Seven Network Head of Telecommunications and Infrastructure, said, “This capacity not only provides critical back-up to our terrestrial services, it also enables quick and effective outside broadcasts for our 7news and 7sport teams.  We are once again delighted to partner with the leading satellite provider in this region.”
