      [Via Satellite 12-16-2014] Eutelsat Communications has received a contract renewal from Poland’s nc+ for nine transponders at the Hot Bird video neighborhood. Through this renewal, nc+ plans to expand the digital services it broadcasts Direct to Home (DTH) for 2.2 million subscribers.

      Today nc+ broadcasts more than 160 channels through Hot Bird satellites, along with more than 400 Free-to-Air (FTA) channels. Nearly half of these channels are in HD, and the broadcaster has plans to pursue Ultra-HD in the future.

      “Thanks to satellite transmission we are able to provide exceptional image quality with today’s best HD quality and, in the future, with the 4K standard,” said nc+ CEO Julien Verley.
