South African pay TV operator MultiChoice is to increase its broadcast capacity over sub-Saharan Africa thanks to a new agreement with Spanish telco TelefÃ³nica.
MultiChoice already uses TelefÃ³nicaÂs infrastructure to provide coverage across Africa, but the new 15-year agreement will provide the pay TV operator with additional capacity to launch HD services. TelefÃ³nica uplinks MultiChoiceÂs services from its Guadalajara facility to the Eutelsat W7 satellite. TelefÃ³nica has set aside space to expand MultiChoiceÂs operations at the centre and has installed a new 13-meter uplink antenna.
