SatLink extends Nigerian TV market reach for Direct-to-Home African content distribution
October 17, 2012
SatLink has been selected by six Nigerian TV Channels to provide end-to-end broadcast services and content distribution to Central and Pan-Africa on the AMOS 5 satellite Ku-band and C-Band platforms.
The broadcasters will also be using SatLink’s end to end broadcast solutions including the company HD Playout Centre services to enable the distribution of the customer’s TV channel to suit African market demands.
The selection of the AMOS 5 Ku- and C-band will extend the channels’ reach to many of the emerging broadcast markets within Africa including Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique. The provisioning of these services from one provider was one of the requirements for all channels as they looked for fully professional, reliable and redundant solutions that enabled them to directly access the African viewers.
