EBU extends Eutelsat deal

The EBU has extended its deal with Eutelsat with a new multiple-transponder contract on two satellites.

The renewal of four transponders on Eutelsat 7A up to 2016 and the further renewal of four more transponders on Eutelsat 10A will support the association’s network that serves 85 national media organisations in 56 countries in and around Europe.

Graham Warren, director of network at the EBU, said: “The EBU and Eutelsat have agreed the renewal of a long-lasting relationship. The EBU was the first customer of Eutelsat in broadcast services in the eighties, developing a relationship which has brought success for both parties over so many years. In the fast and ever-changing broadcast technologies world, this renewal is the premise of further successes for the EBU.”
