TDA renews business with Eutelsat

Eutelsat Communications and TDA (Télédiffusion d’Algérie), Algeria’s national broadcasting company, have announced a five-year extension of a contract for capacity on the Eutelsat 5 West A satellite in order to pursue the roll-out of DTT across Algeria.

The renewal concerns a 36 MHz transponder on Eutelsat 5 West A which is connected to a high-power footprint centred over Algeria to feed the terrestrial transmitter network and to enable Direct-to-Home reception with 60 cm dishes.

The capacity is deployed by TDA to ensure that DTT in Algeria can be available nationwide, either on a DTH basis or via the terrestrial network which is being progressively deployed. TV channels broadcast include Canal Algérie, A3, Programme National, TV4 Coran and TV5 Tamazight.
