SES Americom, NESN extend distribution pact
SES Americom has secured a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal to distribute the New England Sports Networks (NESN) in standard- and high-definition format.
Under the deal, NESN will tap the new AMC-11 satellite, one of two birds supporting SES Americom's HD-Prime platform. The other is AMC-10. Both are C-band satellites.
NESN provides coverage of the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins, as well as minor league baseball and hockey games, as well as local college football and basketball events.
