Middle eastern satellite services operator Gulfsat has signed a new deal for capacity on Eutelsat’s Eutelsat 8 West A satellite, located at 8° East.
Gulfsat currently broadcasts more than 40 TV channels from Eutelsat 8 West A, including MBC Group’s Al Arabiya news channel and Al Arabiya Al Hadath. This will be the fourth transponder Gulfsat leases from Eutelsat and the additional capacity will support further growth in DTH broadcasting across the Middle East.
Mustafa Mourad chief operating officer of Gulfsat said, “We are delighted to pursue our longstanding relationship with Eutelsat that over our five years of collaboration has shown its total commitment to helping Gulfsat grow our broadcast business through high-quality satellite resources. We look forward to further strengthening of viewer choice from Eutelsat 8 West A”.
