Spacecom agrees deal with PanAccess for Nigerian broadcasting

Israeli satellite firm Spacecom has announced that it is providing Ku-band capacity from its AMOS-17 communication satellite to German broadcast services PanAccess for broadcasting to Nigeria. 

PanAccess specialises in providing one-way or two-way CAS and DRM security solutions around the globe. It offers a seamless service portfolio for consumers using any device.

PanAccess currently broadcasts dozens of free-to-air channels from the satellite located at the 17°E orbital position over Africa.

Roland Schlichting, PanAccess CEO, said: “We are thrilled with Spacecom’s response speed that enabled us to be on-air quickly and efficiently. PanAccess views the growth of our broadcast base in Nigeria as an important market and we will continue to add more channels for these customers.”

Spacecom VP sales, Eyal Altshuler said: “Working in tandem with PanAccess, we succeeded in bringing their bouquet onto the air in less than 48 hours after we began designing their solution. AMOS-17 is an exciting satellite with its Ku, Ka and HTS C-Band capabilities. The Nigerian market is now experiencing services and communications from the most powerful, technically advanced satellite serving the region. Since the beginning of commercial operations in late 2019, the satellite is already boosting our business around the continent.”
