Romanian channels select Eutelsat
January 28, 2014
Eutelsat Communications has confirmed the signature of long-term capacity agreements on the Eutelsat 16A satellite with three of Romania’s flagship channels, Kanal D, B1 TV and Trinitas TV.
By joining Eutelsat 16A, the three channels can benefit from immediate and privileged access to hundreds of regional cable networks and all DTH satellite operators serving Romanian television homes. The satellite’s established position in the country’s media market has already attracted more than 30 Romanian channels that together reach 80 per cent of homes.
The three channels have also joined the Freesat DTH platform launched in May 2013 that enables viewers in Romania equipped with the appropriate box to gain free access to the country’s most popular channels.
