France 24 chooses Spacecom for Africa delivery

Satellite operator Spacecom is delivering news channel France 24 to Africa via its Amos-5 satellite.

France 24 is using teleport company SatLink’s content distribution capabilities and Amos-5’s Ku-band platform to enable the broadcaster to distribute its English-language channel to DTH homes in east and central Africa and its French-language channels to homes in central Africa.

“Our Amos-5 broadcast neighbourhood is growing and the addition of France 24 is an excellent step forward,” said Amir Carmeli, Spacecom vice-president for sales, west Europe. “As a premier multi-regional satellite operator, we are looking forward to bringing more channels to our extremely powerful TV platform in Africa.”
