Vista Extends Deal With Intelsat

VISTA Satellite Communications has signed a multi-year extension with Intelsat, which will provide domestic and international satellite capacity through its Galaxy and IS satellite fleet. VISTA distributes syndicated programming for the broadcast community in North America and offers customers long-term flexibility with expanded occasional-use services.
“Our contract extension will help us provide our customers with the capacity they require to deliver high-value content and immediate coverage of events as they happen,” says Roy Liemer, president and CEO of VISTA Satellite Communications. “Intelsat’s Galaxy satellites penetrate the cable and broadcasting neighborhoods demanded most by our customers.”
Adds Ronald Rosenthal, Intelsat regional VP, Broadcast Solutions, “Customers such as VISTA rely on Intelsat’s robust satellite network and dedicated occasional-use-services transponder pool, featuring 24/7 single-point-of-contact customer support. Cable programmers, broadcasters, and media companies seeking occasional-use services have convenient, cost-effective access to our network through numerous video-switching facilities and teleports around the world.”
