SRG SSR Renews Commitment To Eutelsat Hot Bird Position
Eutelsat Communications announced that SRG SSR, Switzerland’s public TV and radio broadcaster, has confirmed its long-term commitment to the Hot Bird neighborhood with the multi-year renewal of one transponder that complements a second transponder already booked on a long-term basis.
SRG SSR occupies the two Hot Bird transponders to broadcast seven channels exclusively in HD quality to Swiss homes beyond range of quality terrestrial reception and for Swiss citizens living abroad. The capacity is also used for Hybrid Broadcast Broadband (HBB) TV services and 26 public service radio stations.
The upgrade to an all-HD satellite offer at the Hot Bird neighborhood was completed in February 2016 with a focus on delivering high signal quality.
