Cyfrowy Polsat extends capacity deal with Eutelsat

Satellite operator Eutelsat Communications and Cyfrowy Polsat have signed a new contract for additional capacity at Eutelsat’s Hot Bird video position. The addition of 18MHz will support the continued expansion of digital entertainment services by the Polish pay TV platform.

The contract takes to six the total number of transponders leased on the Hot Bird position by Cyfrowy Polsat and Telewizja Polsat, the commercial broadcaster owned by Polsat.

“New capacity at Eutelsat’s Hot Bird video position confirms our regular growth. The development of existing services and the introduction of new products require additional resources. Having a solid and reliable partner is really important for conducting successfully long-term business,” said Dariusz Dzialkowski, CTO of Cyfrowy Polsat.
