Bosnian news channel goes FTA with Yahlive

Middle East satellite bouquet provider Yahlive has added Face TV, the leading news service in Bosnia-Herzegovina, to its free-to-air programming line-up.

Yahlive teamed up with Alpha One RTV Network owner Adriatic Tours to take the channel, which has hitherto only been available on pay TV packages, free-to-air.

Face TV is joining Yahsat’s Europe beam with a line-up of channels aimed at communities in the Balkan region. In total, the beam offers 17 channels including A1 Balkan, A1 Sports and Zdrava TV.

Ammar Baranbo, Yahlive chief operating officer said: “Our aim is to provide content diversity to a wide range of audiences and communities within our footprint and we are thrilled that Face TV joins the existing bouquet channels for Balkan viewers of the region. The increased channel offering is testament to Yahlive’s commitment to connecting with the different viewer segments across our coverage areas and to providing our audience with high quality news and entertainment channels that they can all relate to.”

Zisko Mahir, general manager, Adriatic Tours, said: “We are happy to be working closely with Yahlive. Since our first signed agreement in September 2015, this continued partnership allows us to share content that really resonates with Balkan viewers, giving them access to the channels they want.”
