Eutelsat’s glittering Hot Bird prizes were awarded to a slew of channels in Venice, some well-established and some fairly new to the world of satellite transmission. Founded in 1998, this event was the 13th in the series “and is now a healthy teenager,” said Eutelsat chairman Giuliano Berretta.
“We congratulate the men and women generating the remarkable content awarded by the jury of this year’s Hot Bird TV Awards,” said Michel de Rosen, Eutelsat CEO. “Over 150 thematic channels from Europe, the Middle East and Africa entered this year’s event. This makes it the most significant and diverse to date, and underscores the extraordinary vitality of the satellite broadcasting market and its capacity to innovate.”
