Trace HD channels on Eurobird 9A

September 8, 2011

Trace, the media brand specialised in music and sports celebrities content, is strengthening its relationship with Eutelsat via a five-year contract for capacity and uplinking services on the Eurobird 9A satellite.

The new deal gives Trace a large footprint to broadcast across Europe and the Middle East its three HD thematic networks, Trace Urban HD, Trace Tropical HD and the recently-launched Trace Sports HD. As part of the agreement with Eutelsat, its Skylogic affiliate is uplinking the three channels from its teleport in Turin (Italy).

Satellite delivery of the three channels via Eurbird 9A will enable Trace to reach multiple European and Middle East cable, DSL, mobile and DTH platforms, including Eutelsat’s KabelKiosk digital cable platform which last month enriched its HD portfolio of channels with Trace’s HD content.
