Blake Broadcasting/CBNN Signs A Major Satellite Television Distribution Deal Throughout Europe, Asia and North America


October 02, 2019

BBN (Blake Broadcasting) has executed a 3-year+ deal with SES as its exclusive broadcast Satellite Network Provider for CBNN Networks in Europe, Asia and North America. CBNN is a growing network of cable (linear television) properties and OTT Networks reaching over 400 million homes. SES is the largest satellite operator in the world, representing the most significant reach in the broadcast industry. SES also works with the world’s largest live sports, news and event organizations, and takes care of the distribution networks, playout workflows, content management and monetization services and all backend services, so that CBNN can focus on delivering the highest quality content to their audiences worldwide.

“We are very pleased to work with SES as they are the premiere broadcast satellite provider in the world. We are especially honored to be a selected broadcaster on the Astra 1M or 19.2 E Satellite, as that is the most exclusive and most watched satellite platform in Europe. Our broadcast operations in Europe will be proudly based out of Luxembourg. SES will also manage our satellite broadcasts throughout Asia and North America and our linear television expansion plans throughout 2020. In addition, MX1 (now merged into SES) will manage overall channel content distribution, management, playout and monetization integration. Their exceptional level of service will allow us to primarily concentrate on providing the highest quality news, sports, Esports and entertainment content for our channels. We look forward to SES playing a key part in our rapid global growth,” said Bob Blake, CEO of Blake Broadcasting and a founder of CBNN, Oak Park Capital and several news networks.
