June 14, 2012

Eutelsat Communications and Gulfsat, a service provider and satellite specialist in the Middle East and North Africa, have announced the signature of a new contract for capacity on Eutelsat’s 8 West A satellite at 8 degrees West. With this new multi-year lease, Gulfsat’s fourth transponder with Eutelsat, the Kuwaiti operator is securing long-term access to satellite resources with premium reach over the Middle East.

Gulfsat already broadcasts more than 40 flagship TV channels from Eutelsat 8 West A, including MBC Group’s Al Arabiya news channel and Al Arabiya Al Hadath. The additional resources will support further growth at a key reference for DTH broadcasting across the Middle East.
