Ukraine’s public broadcaster is to switch is ‘foreign’ channel, UA|TV, from its current transmission aboard Spacecom’s Amos-2 satellite to Eutelsat’s ‘Hot Bird’ which broadcasts from 13 degrees East.

The news, from the country’s UNIAN news agency, quotes the Ukrainian Information Ministry, saying: “Hot Bird 13 is three powerful satellites in one, whose signal ideally covers entire Europe – from Portugal to Great Britain to western Siberia in Russia, from Scandinavia to South Africa and the Middle East,” the state secretary of the Information Policy Ministry, Artem Bidenko, said.

Until February 28th, UA|TV will also continue broadcasting from the Amos 2 satellite.

The channel’s signal is also available in Asia via Azerspace 1 and in North America via Galaxy 19.
