We greatly appreciate iN DEMAND for entrusting SES and our Ultra HD platform to distribute this first-ever 4K live sporting event to Pay TV homes and systems in the US.”

“The SES Ultra HD platform has enabled iN DEMAND to take our immersive PPV sports offerings to a whole new level of stunning, realistic sports action television,” said John Schultz, Vice President of Broadcast Operations at iN DEMAND. “The Bellator-produced MMA event in 4K was a first step in bringing the latest generation of video to our affiliates.”
