Canal Satellite Réunion boosts pay platform

November 28, 2007

Eutelsat has clinched a multi-year contract with Canal Satellite Réunion, which is a subsidiary of Canal Overseas (Canal + Group). The capacity on Eutelsat’s W2 satellite will support the expansion of the Canal Satellite Réunion pay-TV platform which broadcasts channels and services to satellite homes in Reunion Island and surrounding islands in the Indian Ocean.

In addition to providing additional capacity, Eutelsat will also uplink channels joining Canal Satellite Réunion to the W2 satellite from its teleport in Rambouillet, near Paris.

Olivier Milliès-Lacroix, Eutelsat’s Commercial Director said the agreement further anchored W2 as a key video neighbourhood in the region.”
