South Africa’s new DTH broadcaster TopTV, established barely a year ago, has beaten off tough competition from well-established MultiChoice and others to win SatCom’s Star Award as ‘Best Satellite Broadcast Provider for Africa’.

The awards have run for 3 years and are designed to recognise exceptional performers within the industry.

TopTV‘s citation highlights the company’s move into TV’s new directions, namely its MPEG4 transmissions, and that TopTV has helped bring television entertainment and information to the previous “not haves” of society.
