Media Fibre

Media Fibre

Our rapidly expanding fibre network connects our headquarters in MediaCityUK and Milton Keynes with major UK broadcasters, sporting venues, network operators and studio facilities plus international teleports and global connectivity providers.

SIS LIVE’s fibre network connects our headquarters in MediaCityUK and Milton Keynes with resilient connectivity into key broadcast locations. These include major UK broadcasters, sports venues, network operators and studio facilities plus international teleports and global connectivity providers. Our core network is fully diverse and separate. In addition, diversity can be provided at any of our venue fibre locations. Signals can be routed directly to you from either of our teleport sites or to national and international customers via a combination of satellite and fibre paths.

Our facilities are designed to offer a full range of broadcast services from Ultra HD to low bit rate streaming, with data and audio services also available. 

SNG and ‘ad-hoc’ event coverage

SNG and ad-hoc

SIS LIVE is Europe’s largest supplier of satellite uplinks.  In the UK, we provide contracted digital satellite services to all the major broadcasters — BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five, Good Morning Britain, Sky News and Sky Sports.

SIS LIVE is also the only company with multiple regional bases throughout the UK.   Since our first live non-sport broadcast of the fall of the Berlin wall back in 1989, we have become a major force in the uplink and satellite news gathering (SNG) markets. From a handful of vehicles our fleet has grown and now numbers approximately 128 uplink trucks and additional flyaway units. 

We cover over 100,000 hours of satellite links each year for worldwide events.  As well as our contracted services we also supply connectivity service for major events on an ad-hoc basis, and our credits include:

London Marathon
European Tour Golf
Glastonbury Festival
UEFA Champions League Football
Premiership Football

Teleport and distribution services
