SKY Mexico Uses Aldea Network to Increase Subscriber Base in Central America

SKY Mexico selects Aldea's fiber transmission facilities to connect various Panamanian television networks.

MONTREAL, Aug. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Aldea Solutions, Inc. and SKY Mexico, the largest direct to home TV operator in Mexico and Central-America, announced today that they have expanded their existing commercial relationship.  SKY Mexico has selected Aldea for the transport of two of their live-to-air channels from Panama to its distribution center in Mexico City.

As part of a strategy to increase its Central-American subscriber base, channels produced by Televisora Nacional de Panama will be transported from Panama to Sky Mexico via Aldea's global video fiber network, for inclusion in the Sky Mexico distribution platform.

Aldea has provided Sky Mexico quality delivery of several sports events both in HD and SD from USA, Europe and South America for a number of years.  For this project, Aldea provided Sky Mexico with a completely managed 24/7 end to end solution.
