T-HT Croatia boosts pay-TV with Eutelsat
January 17, 2011
T-HT, Croatia’s leading telecom operator has selected the 16 degrees East satellite neighbourhood operated by Eutelsat to extend the reach of its MAXtv pay-TV platform to all homes across Croatia.
The two companies have concluded a 10-year contract for three satellite transponders, enabling MAXtv, which launched as an IP platform in September 2006, to consolidate its position in Croatia’s digital television market.
For T-HT, the new satellite service will optimise the footprint of MAXtv to viewers beyond range of its ADSL network, particularly to semi-urban, rural communities and Croatian islands in the Adriatic. In addition, for T-HT’s ADSL subscribers, a new hybrid box will enable users to benefit from interactive services through the DSL network and a broad range of digital and High-Definition television delivered by satellite.
