Georgia’s first domestic DTH platform will launch in January.
Telco MagtiCom will use SES Astra satellite capacity at 31.5° East to launch a pay TV service offering SD and HD channels on January 1 2012.
David Lee, general director of MagtiCom said: “Together with SES we will accelerate the digitalisation in Georgia. With the excellent satellite fleet and technical know-how of our partner, we will provide Georgian TV viewers with the highest quality of digital television services. Moreover, the launch of this DTH platform represents a unique opportunity and a major step forward for the region, as it will allow Georgian TV viewers for the first time to receive a Georgian pay TV offer from satellite.”
MagtiCom will broadcast in the DVB-S2 standard and will use MPEG-4 encoding.
