Spacecom, the AMOS satellites operator, has claimed that during the last months of 2007 it improved its position as the satellite of choice for broadcasters all over Central and Eastern Europe.
In Slovenia, Spacecom signed up privately owned music channel ?arli TV, while in Romania, Trinitas TV, owned by the Bucovina and Moldavia Church, joined the flock. Carli TV’s music videos and programming will be transmitted over AMOS for five years, whereas Trinitas TV’s inspirational channel will be on AMOS for a three-year period.
Hungary saw two contract extensions with Halozat, a public TV station supported by the country’s local governments, and with HDT, a VSAT provider for private networks. Halozat has signed on for an additional seven years, and HDT is increasing its usage of AMOS to provide broadband Internet access via satellite for its expanding network.
In the Ukraine, Spacecom’s Russian-language and international music mix is dancing ahead. Music Box, a broadcaster focusing on local music, is making AMOS’ music footprint in the country – alongside MTV Ukraine, M1, M2 and OTV Music Channel – even stronger with a three-year deal.
