Satellite TV operator SES recently launched a free-to-air TV channel dedicated to delivering reliable and informative content about Covid-19.
A large majority of satellite TV households were very satisfied with their TV service (76%), in comparison with cable TV (70%), digital terrestrial (69%), analogue terrestrial (59%), and IPTV (54%) respectively.
If broadcasters could easily report on the devastation outside the area of terrestrial networks, can satellite technologies be used by the government to better coordinate rescue efforts during a natural disaster and bridge the digital divide? The answer is yes.
Interested space tech-savvy Filipinos will be able to test the waters, so to speak, as the satellite telecommunications company will be conducting the Inmarsat World Conference (IWC) on Nov. 6-8, 2017 at the Lisbon Congress Center, Lisbon, Portugal.
