Satellite operator SES (Euronext Paris:SESG) has announced that 4KUNIVERSE, a general entertainment UltraHD video channel, is the latest network to join its UltraHD lineup for cable operators and other TV platforms across North America.

A mix of documentaries, sports, movies, and TV shows aimed at Millennials and Generation-X viewers, 4KUNIVERSE will make its debut in January on the SES-1 satellite, one of three satellites (SES-1, SES-3, AMC-18) at the center of the orbital arc. 4KUNIVERSE, licensed to multiple video program distributors (MVPDs) by Vivicast Media, is the fourth UltraHD channel in less than two months to join SES's regional UltraHD platform, home to eight linear UltraHD channels as of January. SES has now inked distribution deals with more than 30 UltraHD channels globally.

"4KUNIVERSE represents a tremendous addition to the expanding UltraHD content choices offered over the SES UltraHD distribution platform serving North America," said Matthew Mancinelli, founder and CEO of 4KUNIVERSE. "We have been collaborating with the SES team for months, by testing with block programming on their promotional channel - all leading up to this exciting launch of our 24/7 UltraHD channel with cable and telecom companies across the U.S. Our first carriage deals will be announced shortly."
