As the demand for content in Latin America grows, this agreement with
Intelsat positions Turner Broadcasting perfectly to deliver the programming.
Turner Broadcasting will continue to provide standard-definition content
on Intelsat 9, and will offer high-definition programming on Intelsat 11 to its
customers in Latin America. Turner has historically used Intelsat’s fleet
exclusively for its Latin American distribution platforms. Together with

platforms for television in the region.

premier distributor of standard- and high-definition programming in this
quickly growing region,” said Kurt Riegelman, Intelsat’s SVP of Global Sales.
