LUXEMBOURG, 20 November 2015 -- SES S.A. (NYSE Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG) announced today that it will test broadcast Saturday’s Real Madrid vs. Barcelona football match in Ultra High Definition (Ultra HD) via SES’s ASTRA 1L satellite at 19.2 degrees East. The transmission is part of the Ultra HD technical tests being conducted by SES, Movistar+ and other industry partners. 

“A test live broadcast of a football match in Ultra High Definition marks another milestone in the introduction of this new technology in Spain, as well as in Europe, and shows the readiness of the Ultra HD ecosystem,” said Luis Sahún, General Manager of Spain at SES. “Thanks to satellite and its ability to cost-effectively deliver the best quality content to a large audience, it is only a matter of time before the live broadcast of Ultra HD content becomes part of our daily TV viewing experience.”
