Peter Jackson, CEO, AsiaSat, said, “INX is one of the fastest growing television networks in India and has enjoyed tremendous success shortly after launch by providing world-class and quality content to their targeted viewers. Once again, AsiaSat’s unsurpassed viewership access across the Asia-Pacific and our capability in providing quality one-stop broadcast solution enable us to meet INX’s aggressive distribution plan in the region.”
