Spacecom, operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, has signed a long term agreement with Ukraine’s 1+1 Media, a leading media company, for the broadcast of its channels on the AMOS-6 satellite. From the 4°W prime orbital position, AMOS-6 will provide satellite broadcast services for 1+1 Media’s entire network over its Ku-band pan-European transponders.
1+1 Media is a leading Ukrainian multi-channel platform. AMOS-6, after its scheduled launch in 2015, will broadcast all the network’s channels throughout the Ukraine and Europe. The AMOS satellite fleet currently has a robust Ukrainian neighborhood including channels from the Inter Media Group, MTV Ukraine, STB and Xtra TV, the DTH operator.
“Utilising the AMOS-6 platform will enable us to enlarge our business operations and open more business opportunities for our growing network,” said Yaroslav Pakholchuk, COO of 1+1 Media. “We are looking towards 2015 as a year of expansion and AMOS-6 will be an important part of our long term future.”
