Orby TV Uses Eutelsat Satellite for New US DTH Service
Orby TV selected Eutelsat for capacity on the the EUTELSAT 117 West A satellite. The multi-year, multi-transponder agreement between the companies was revealed following Orby TV’s recent launch of its new and satellite service across the lower 48 continental United States.
Orby TV is leveraging EUTELSAT 117 West A’s Ku-band coverage of the U.S. to distribute its satellite television service, featuring pay-as-you-go flexibility, dozens of popular networks, free local channels, with no credit checks or contractual commitments.
Michael Thornton, CEO of Orby TV, said: “Orby TV is very pleased to enter into a multi-year agreement with Eutelsat to help us reliably deliver a quality, best in-class pay-TV experience that is affordable with no internet streaming required. With Orby TV prices starting at just $40 per month and the flexibility of the prepaid model to turn the service on/off, while always enjoying free local programming and use of the interactive guide, Orby TV is filling a void in the U.S. marketplace.”
