      Joyne, a new multi-channel TV venture for Dutch viewers and the country’s recreational market, has selected the Eutelsat 9B satellite as its platform to reach viewers in the Netherlands and across Europe. Joyne has signed a multi-year, multi-transponder contract with Eutelsat Communications and is preparing to officially launch on July 24, using Eutelsat’s Paris-Rambouillet teleport for uplink services.

      The new platform will begin with a mix of pay and Free-to-Air (FTA) channels with a strong accent on sport. It will feature 30 well-known Dutch and international channel brands including Fox Sports HD channels and Discovery Networks Benelux.

      The monthly subscription option, which gives subscribers access to the full suite of Joyne programming, will be available from 13 euros ($14.93) per month. According to Joyne, its proposition is also based on flexible short-term subscriptions, from one month, for Dutch viewers with second homes and mobile homes as well as special offers for public spaces in camping sites and bars.
