Brazil's TV Record network selects SES for satellite distribution

Brazil's longest running television network -- TV Record -- has just announced that it is selecting SES NEW SKIES for satellite distribution of its international and domestic content. The multi-year agreement will also enable the network to launch its first HDTV channel for broadcasting in Brazil, while the Record Internacional channel will be beamed to North America via the NSS-806 bird. There's no mention of a go-live date for the aforementioned HD channel, but we're hoping it won't keep eager Brazilians waiting for too long here -- the teasing is the worst part, you know.
