ION Media Networks Debuts on HD-Prime

Thanks to an agreement between SES Americom and ION Media Networks, the latter will now be seen on HD-Prime. ION Media Networks has signed a multiyear distribution agreement to launch its full suite of television networks in HD.

ION Television HD debuts this week over HD-PRIME satellite AMC-1, with ION’s qubo, a multilingual kid’s network, and ION Life, a digital network devoted to active lifestyles, set to follow later this year. ION Television HD viewers can enjoy a mix of compelling television series, theatrical and made-for-television movies and specials.

For more than 13 years, ION Media Networks has leveraged the expanding reach and expertise of SES AMERICOM to grow its penetration levels across cable, broadcast and DTH markets. “ION Media Networks is making the move to HD with absolute confidence in our distribution platform and partner,” said David Goosey, Senior System Engineer at ION Media Networks. “HD-PRIME offers the advanced technology, the know-how, and the top-of-the-arc orbital slot we need to serve our affiliates and audiences from Honolulu to Boston.”
