Russian satellite operator Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) and Germany-based satellite capacity reseller Romantis are set to provide new video services in the African region.

The pair are creating a new DTH TV-platform for Africa that will let current and new broadcasters launch and promote national and regional TV programs across the continent.

This project will use the new Russian telecoms satellite Express-AM6, which launched last month, and the German teleport VicusLuxLink.

“In accordance with our target, when the satellite is commissioned and put into the commercial operation, we are planning to deliver the TV broadcasting services on the African market which presents a very attractive business platform,” said RSCC Director General, Yuri Prokhorov.

“The launch of the new RSCC satellite with the capacity related engagements in Europe, the Middle East and Africa will boost the business cooperation between RSCC and Romantis to a new level,” said Romantis CEO Harald Stange.
