Eutelsat passed the milestone at the end of last year following the launch of Arabic film channel Rotana Cinema at the satellite operator’s 7° West position. Eutelsat said that satellites serving the Middle East, Africa, Russia and central Europe had seen particularly strong growth, boosted by 2011 launches of Atlantic Bird 7 to 7° West, W3C to 16° East and W7 to 36° East.
Eutelsat ceased analogue broadcasts at the end of 2011. Some 7% of channels on the platform are now HD services. Pay TV services account for 60% of channels on Eutelsat.
