Eutelsat Communications and the African Telecommunications Union (ATU) are combining their knowledge and experience to propose a conference in Abidjan on 15-16 December on the transition to digital broadcasting and telecommunications services across West Africa.
Eutelsat Communications and Spacecom has announced the signature of a partnership agreement that will drive expansion of digital entertainment services at one of Africa’s fastest-growing video neighbourhoods.
On the occasion of AfricaCom 2014, Eutelsat Communications and Isocel Telecom, one of Benin’s leading Internet Service Providers, announced the conclusion of a multi-year lease for C-band capacity on the EUTELSAT 3B satellite to support the country’s tax collection system.
Eutelsat Communications has sealed a ten-year contract with Crystal TV, Ghana's leading commercial broadcaster, for capacity connected to the African service area of the EUTELSAT 16A satellite. The capacity enables Crystal TV to benefit from countrywide coverage of Ghana for its digital platform of pay-TV and free-to-air channels.
Muvi TV, Zambia’s leading commercial broadcaster and one of Africa’s fastest-growing satellite TV platforms, is poised for a new phase of expansion. The company has renewed and expanded its satellite capacity requirements from Stellar, a leading German play-out centre and satellite uplink facility, that leases high-power capacity on the EUTELSAT 7B satellite operated by Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) to broadcast Muvi TV to Zambia and neighbouring countries.
Eutelsat America Corporation has been selected by SES Government Solutions to provide satellite capacity to support communications for U.S. Africa Command.
