Switzerland’s SRG SSR renews Eutelsat capacity

February 23, 2017

Eutelsat Communications has announced that SRG SSR, Switzerland’s public TV and radio broadcaster, has confirmed its long-term commitment to the Hotbird neighbourhood with the multi-year renewal of one transponder that complements a second transponder already booked on a long-term basis.

SRG SSR occupies the two Hotbird transponders to broadcast seven channels (RTS Un, RTS Deux, SRF 1, SRF zwei, SRF info, RSI LA 1, RSI LA 2) exclusively in HD quality to Swiss homes beyond range of quality terrestrial reception and for Swiss citizens living abroad. The capacity is also used for Hbb TV services and 26 public service radio stations.

The upgrade to an all-HD satellite offer at the Hotbird neighbourhood was completed in February 2016 with a focus on delivering high signal quality.
