Eurovision Services to offer European sport in LatAm via Hispasat

April 19, 2023

Hispasat has reached an agreement with Eurovision Services to distribute the best European sport via satellite in Latin America for one year, including the main continental football competitions. In this way, Eurovision Services will deliver the signal of these events to the Hispasat teleport in Lurin (Peru) and, from there, it will be sent to the Hispasat 30W-6 satellite for subsequent distribution to television operators in the region. As part of this service, Hispasat is responsible for the monitoring and supervision of this transmission.

The Lurin teleport is one of the largest in the region and offers satellite reception and transmission services (in standard and extended Ku-band, C-band and DBS). As a result, Hispasat customers can deploy their own direct-to-home (DTH) television services, contribution and distribution of satellite channels to cable operators, telecommunications operators and service providers, as well as the transmission of occasional events, among others.

Hispasat’s satellites located at 30º West and 61º West are in a privileged position for the deployment of services of this type in Latin America. In particular, the Amazonas fleet, at position 61º West, is the benchmark in the region, offering direct-to-home TV to almost two million subscribers.
