AMOS launches DTH service in Ukraine
August 2, 2011
Spacecom, the operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, has signed an agreement with a European company to provide satellite services to a new DTH platform for the Ukrainian market under the ‘Xtra TV’ Brand. Spacecom’s AMOS-3 satellite at 4°W will provide the services. The multi-year deal is valued up to $19 million.
Xtra TV, the new Ukrainian multi-channel platform, will broadcast close to 100 channels (including Free to Air) to the market, which is one of the last major European countries without a large and successful DTH provider. Currently, AMOS’ Ukrainian TV neighbourhood has close to 30 of the Ukraine’s most highly rated channels, among them: Inter, 1+1, ICTV, STB, New Channel, K1 and NTN, making AMOS a strong player in the local satellite market.
