NBC has signed a multi-year, multiple Ku-band transponder renewal agreement with SES Americom for satellite service on its AMC-1 spacecraft.

NBC will use the transponders to distribute a wide range of network programming to more than 200 affiliated stations across the United States. Under the agreement, NBC News Channel has begun program delivery aboard AMC-9.

NBC was the first television network to use Ku-band satellite services 15 years ago.
