Trinity Broadcasting Network Recommits to the Intelsat Galaxy Fleet, Extending Long-Term Distribution Agreement for Another Decade

Leveraging Intelsat’s distribution platform, TBN programming reaches
more than 100 million U.S. viewers

LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intelsat S.A. (NYSE: I), operator of the world’s first Globalized
Network and leader in integrated satellite communications, and longtime
customer Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) signed a multi-year
agreement to distribute high definition (HD) and standard definition
programming to cable head-ends throughout North America.

Under the previously announced agreement, TBN, America’s most-watched
faith channel, will reach more than 100 million households in the United
States through Intelsat’s highly penetrated Galaxy 14 video
neighborhood. Galaxy 14 distributes more than 200 channels in North
America, with close to 100 channels in HD. TBN’s programming will
seamlessly transition to a next-generation Galaxy satellite at the same
orbital location over the span of the long-term contract.

“Intelsat sets the industry standard for delivering reliable media
services that allow broadcasters to deliver programming that attracts
more viewers,” said Robert Fopma, TBN’s COO. “The resiliency and high
penetration rate of Intelsat’s Galaxy 14 neighborhood has been vital to
our growth strategy and expanded our audience base to reach our audience
with our faith-based, high-quality programs.”

“As the world’s largest religious network, Trinity Broadcasting Network
relies on the ubiquity of our Globalized Network to expand to new
markets and cost-effectively deliver programming to millions of
viewers,” said Randy Anders, Intelsat’s Managing Director, North America
Sales. “Our collaboration with TBN and its eagerness to continue
services well into the next decade is a great example of the quality,
reliability, and efficiency of our Galaxy 14 satellite, which reaches
more subscribers than any other satellite in the United States.”
