Eurochannel Upgrades to HD at Eutelsat’s Video Neighborhood
Eurochannel, an international channel dedicated to European films and series, announced it is upgrading from standard to High Definition (HD) with Eutelsat. Already a direct customer of Eutelsat for the last five years, the channel is now expanding its capacity on the Eutelsat 16A satellite to launch its HD version for European viewers.
Eurochannel will leverage Eutelsat 16A’s reach to reinforce its European distribution that recently extended to Russia, Lithuania and Croatia. The upgraded HD channel will be uplinked from Bosnia via Eutelsat’s partner teleport Team:Media.
Eutelsat 16A is positioned at Eutelsat’s 16 degrees east neighborhood, a preferred location for TV distribution to terrestrial networks across Europe, from Reykjavik to Moscow and Tenerife to Tbilisi. More than 70 cable and IP operators in 17 countries across Europe currently receive Eurochannel content.
