European film channel Eurochannel has selected Eutelsat’s 16A satellite to support a pan-European expansion strategy.
The channel has signed a five-year contract with Eutelsat for capacity and services that will enable it to deliver a number of new language versions, starting with a Serbian version offered by telco Telekom Srbija.
Eurochannel broadcasts to 30 countries, including France and Portugal.
Eurochannel chairman and CEO Gustavo Vainstein said: “When we looked at distribution across Europe the Eutelsat 16A satellite quickly emerged as the obvious choice for its high-power coverage and established audience, in particular in central Europe. Working with Eutelsat represents a major asset for Eurochannel because we can confidently pursue our mission to distribute European audiovisual production throughout the world, and in every language.”
