Unique Broadcasting Service S.A. (UNBROSSA) has signed a multiyear, multi-transponder agreement with Eutelsat for capacity on the Eutelsat 117 West B satellite to launch its new low-cost Direct-to-Home (DTH) platform for the Caribbean, called Play.

With an offer of more than 125 channels, including 25 High Definition (HD) channels, Play is scheduled to launch in spring 2018. According to UNBROSSA, the platform will be available as a solar-powered solution to reach areas in regions not covered by the electric grid.

“This project is a major milestone as it will bring television to many for the first time, creating a significant impact on their access to information and quality of life,” sad Didier Alerte, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of UNBROSSA.
