RRSat increases African DTH presence with Spacecom deal

Content management and global distribution company RR Sat has launched two new Ku-Band MCPC platforms on Spacecom’s AMOS-5 Satellite at 17° East.

RRsat said the two MCPC platforms, Ku-1 for west central Africa and Ku-3 for east west Africa, will complement its DTH business in sub-Saharan Africa.

“The African market for broadcast television is growing rapidly,” said Lior Rival, vice-president sales and marketing at RRsat. “Together with AMOS, we believe that with these platforms we will be able to provide leading TV and radio channels the opportunity to reach a continent demanding new television viewing.
