Thaicom satellites serve the programming distribution needs of some of the leading broadcasters in Asia and MEA — cable head end, DTH, and global TV operators alike.
Our contribution services ensure signals reach a particular uplink station or a multiplexing platform for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint transmissions for digital and analogue signals.
