Eutelsat Communications has signed a multi-year, multi-transponder contract with Media Group Ukraine for broadcasting services on its Eutelsat 9B satellite.
Leveraging the Eutelsat 9B satellite’s dedicated coverage over Ukraine, Media Group Ukraine will broadcast Xtra TV, one of the country’s leading pay-TV platforms, with an enhanced offer of over 60 channels including 19 in HD, in eight thematic packages for all audiences.
Xtra TV is the only Ukrainian pay-TV platform to broadcast two TV channels dedicated to football, holding exclusive rights for the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Premier League and Serie A.
