Televisa uses Intelsat’s Managed Media Services during the 2022 Qatar World Cup
MCLEAN, Va. – Intelsat, operator of one of the world’s largest integrated satellite and terrestrial networks and leading provider of inflight connectivity (IFC), and GrupoTelevisa, a Mexican major content and telecommunications corporation, are bringing viewers in Mexico live action games from the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
For the past several months, engineers from Intelsat and Televisa have worked together planning, optimizing, and implementing a robust managed media solution that handles the high-quality standards required when distributing one of the most-watched sporting events in the world.
“For more than 20 years, we have relied on Intelsat to provide customized service offerings for high-profile events such as past World Cups, Olympics, Pan-American Games, and elections. Televisa partners with Intelsat because of their ability to provide us with robust and reliable services that are designed specifically to meet our broadcast needs,” said Williams Aguirre, Televisa’s director of Satellite Operations.
Intelsat 20 (IS-20), located at 68.5E, has a C-band global beam that provides Televisa with unsurpassed flexibility and reach in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
