Turkish public broadcaster Türkiye Radyo ve Televizyon Kurumu (TRT) has chosen satellite operator SES to provide the platform to enable it to reach audiences in sub-Saharan Africa.
TRT will use capacity on SES-5 located at 5° East to broadcast its free-to-air digital channel TRT Turk and its radio channel Turkiyenin Sesi Radyosu to the region using the satellite’s unique Ka-band uplink capabilities.
Ibrahim Sahin, general manager of TRT, said: “We rely on SES’ expertise and global satellite fleet to reach important audiences and markets outside of Turkey. We already rely on SES’ prime orbital position 19.2° East to reach our audiences in western Europe. The use of SES-5 will give us immediate access to sub-Saharan Africa and provide our target audience with premium news, culture and entertainment programmes made in Turkey.”
