Hispasat signs capacity deals for 30º West

Spanish satellite operator Hispasat has extended its capacity agreement with RRSat, RTVE and FORTA for distribution of content from 30º West.

The Hispasat 1E satellite, situated at this orbital slot, distributes TV and radio channels from the RRSat platform for Europe and America. Hispasat said it is launching a joint program with RRSat, aimed at deploying antennas in Europe, to provide quality content and an increased number of channels in the 30º West position covering Europe.

The Hispasat 1E satellite will also distribute content from Spanish public service broadcaster RTVE to America from the same European position, and will broadcast the respective regional Galician and Basque channels TVG and ETB, to America, thanks to its deal with Spanish broadcast federation FORTA.

“The capacity of the Hispasat satellites to transmit powerfully to the American continent makes it the transatlantic satellite operator with the biggest and best coverage for providing European programming to America,” the firm claimed.
