1-2-3.tv Extends SD And HD Broadcasting Over SES ASTRA

German omnichannel auction platform 1-2-3.tv has extended a long-term partnership with Luxembourg based SES Astra to continue broadcasting its SD and HD live auction programme on SES satellites.

1-2-3.tv is Germany's leading omnichannel auction platform that reaches over 2 million viewers via TV, online and mobile apps. Its HD channel is available on the 10.803 MHz frequency, and its SD channel is received in the MPEG-2 format on the 12.460 MHz frequency.

In addition to satellite transmission, 1-2-3.tv is relying on SES’s satellite and OTT in sync platform to minimize delays for online viewers. This synchronizes OTT and satellite TV, ensuring that consumers who watch 1-2-3 TV online now have the same opportunity to participate in live auctions as consumers watching via satellite TV.

“It is important for us to be able to deliver attractive auction offerings to customers, quickly and easily,” said Jörg Simon, Managing Director of 1-2-3.tv. “SES helps us reach a large audience via satellite, enabling revenue growth of over 20% this year.
