PBS is a private, nonprofit corporation, founded in 1969, whose members are America’s public TV stations. It is a multi-platform media organization that serves America through television, mobile and connected devices and in the classroom. Starting earlier this year, Intelsat’s Galaxy 16 Ku-band satellite started delivering iconic PBS content to 156 broadcast affiliates reaching an audience of nearly 50 million primetime viewers. Located at 99W, the performance and reach of Galaxy 16 into North America were key factors in PBS’s selection of Intelsat to meet its distribution needs.
