Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSBc) has confirmed the signing of a satellite transmission agreement with Neterra, a new DTH white-label, shared platform, called “the W1”, that offers pay-tv services in Bulgaria.
Neterra has contracted two transponders on TSBc’s THOR 6 satellite, located at 1˚West, one of the fastest-growing orbital positions for Central and Eastern Europe. The capacity will be utilised for video distribution in Bulgaria, where Neterra plans to offer other operators a premium pay-tv platform.
The arrival of Neterra gives another boost to the local and international channel line-up available at 1˚West, which distributes more than 700 TV and radio channels.
Neterra expects the first operators that will utilise the new DTH platform to launch within the next few months, carrying more than 60 of the Bulgarian market’s most popular local and international channels. Neterra plans to expand this channel line-up rapidly to include local and international HD channels.
