Bulgarian DTH provider Satellite BG has said it will cease broadcasting as of June 1.
In a statement on its website, the operator blamed the economic crisis for its closure.
The owners of the platform have agreed with Bulgarian telco Vivacom a deal whereby Satellite BG subscribers will be given the option to sign up for Vivacom’s pay TV service. Subscribers that have prepaid for a period after the end of May have been advised to contact Satellite BG’s call centre for details on reimbursement.
Satellite BG launched in February 2011 using capacity on the Astra position at 23.5° East, with an offering of about 70 channels, including HD services.
