OlympuSAT has signed a multi-year, multi-transponder deal for Intelsat to continue to distribute its bouquet of programming to millions of U.S. cable, satellite and other video providers, officials said Wednesday.

Under the terms of the contract, OlympuSAT has renewed and expanded its capacity on Intelsat’s Galaxy 23 satellite located at 121 degrees West. Strategically positioned in the middle of the North American Cable Arc, Galaxy 23 is part of Intelsat’s Galaxy Neighborhood, which serves nearly 8,000 cable headends.

The three areas of programming available from OlympuSAT include: Spanish language, faith and families and top independent networks like FUNimation, the nation’s leading anime service.

OlympuSAT is a distributor of independently owned and operated digital networks on individual transponder platforms and currently represents more than two dozen diverse channels through their Hispanic, Digital I and Faith & Families Packs.
