Turkish international channel takes capacity on Astra

Turkish public broadcaster Türkiye Radyo ve Televizyon Kurumu (TRT) has signed a multi-year contract with SES for the carriage of international channel TRT Turk on the Astra platform at 19.2° East.

TRT will use former analogue capacity on Astra that became available when broadcasters in Germany switched off the analogue satellite signals on April 30.
