Satellite operator Eutelsat has renewed its contract with Polish pay TV operator nc+ for nine transponders at the Hot Bird position at 13° East.
According to Eutelsat, the latest deal will enable nc+ to pursue the expansion of its platform of digital services. Nc+ currently has about 2.2 million DTH customer in Poland and broadcasts over 160 channels, of which close ot 50% are in HD.
“Poland is a very important satellite-driven broadcasting market. Thanks to satellite transmission we are able to provide exceptional image quality with today’s best HD quality and in the future with the 4K standard. nc+ is at the forefront of technological changes and we are proud to cooperate with such a strong and reliable partner as Eutelsat. We look forward to strengthening this cooperation,” said nc+ CEO Julien Verley.
“Almost 25 years since the launch of multi-channel broadcasting in Poland through Eutelsat satellites, that was followed by the transition to digital and the launch of High Definition, we are proud that nc+ has today renewed its trust in us. This new agreement further consolidates and confirms Eutelsat’s Hot Bird position as Poland’s neighbourhood of choice for free-to-air and pay-TV broadcast,” said Michel Azibert, chief commercial and development officer at Eutelsat.
