Orange leans on Hellas Sat for combined DTH offering in Romania

Hellas Sat, Orange Romania and Orange Romania Communications – the former Telekom Romania that was acquired by Orange – have signed a multi-year agreement to complete the DTH merger of the Orange Romania and Orange Romania Communications TV package and offers.

This merger is designed to enable Orange Romania Group to offer an integrated technical solution with similar services, as well as a unified customer experience for both Orange Romania and Orange Romania Communications customers.

Hellas Sat said that the performance and availability of two Hellas Sat satellites at the same orbital position, together with its technical and commercial approach, played an important role in winning the tender procedure.

The satellite outfit said the agreement made it the first-choice orbital position for DTH and TV channels distribution in Romania, and that it reinforced its leading position in South East Europe.

Christodoulos Protopapas, CEO of Hellas Sat, said: “It is our honour to collaborate with Orange Romania and Orange Romania Communications, continuing and expanding our services in Romania. We are proud to partner with Orange Romania to offer its subscribers the best user experience in DTH, with enhanced services and technology. This new agreement clearly demonstrates Hellas Sat long-term commitment to operators and broadcasters, to serve Romania – and South-Eastern Europe countries in general – with one of the most powerful satellite systems in the region, reaching more than 1.5 million antennas pointing at 39 degrees East.”
