Eutelsat renews Elettronica Industriale capacity deal

Satellite operator Eutelsat has renewed its deal with Italy’s Elettronica Industriale, the network operator of the Mediaset Group, for capacity on the Atlantic Bird 3 satellite for channel distribution to DTT transmitters.

Elettronica Industriale has leased capacity on Atlantic Bird 3 since March 2006 as the primary distribution platform to ensure nationwide delivery of channels to DTT towers. The two transponders leased by Elettronica Industriale host four multiplexes, which include free-to-air and pay-TV content, and which are uplinked from its teleport in Milan.
