Canal Satellite RÃ©union boosts pay platform
November 28, 2007
Eutelsat has clinched a multi-year contract with Canal Satellite RÃ©union, which is a subsidiary of Canal Overseas (Canal + Group). The capacity on Eutelsat’s W2 satellite will support the expansion of the Canal Satellite RÃ©union 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 RÃ©union to the W2 satellite from its teleport in Rambouillet, near Paris.
Olivier MilliÃ¨s-Lacroix, Eutelsat’s Commercial Director said the agreement further anchored W2 as a key video neighbourhood in the region.”
