Tunisia’s Office National de la Telediffusion Tunisien (ONT) has been working with Arabsat for some years, but that relationship is now being greatly expanded with ONT using Arabsat to transmit a bundle of channels to Arab viewers.
ONT will use Arabsat’s Badr-4 satellite (26 degrees East) to carry the channels. Transmission will start towards the end of the second quarter this year.
Dhaker Baccouch CEO of ONT stated that by expanding their cooperation with Arabsat it will enable them to meet their customers’ needs and position ONT as a true one stop shop. Baccouch added that he believes the 26 degrees E neighbourhood will continue its growth through the addition of exclusive TV channels respecting the traditions of the region.
