4,000 channels for Eutelsat
January 30, 2012
Eutelsat Communications has revealed that the number of channels broadcasting through its satellites hit the milestone of 4,000 at the end of 2011. This new landmark reflects almost 30 years of uninterrupted channel growth since the first TV signals broadcast in Europe from Eutelsat’s pioneering communications satellites. The threshold was crossed with the launch at Eutelsat’s 7° West video neighbourhood of Rotana Cinema, devoted to classic and contemporary films in Arabic and part of the Rotana entertainment group.
