Polish Broadcast TVN Contracts Additional Capacity from Eutelsat
Leading Polish broadcaster TVN has contracted additional capacity from Eutelsat Communications in its HOTBIRD video neighborhood. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the companies said Wednesday that it is a multi-year agreement.
TVN is a long-standing customer of Eutelsat, and the broadcaster is an anchor HOTBIRD customer. HOTBIRD is one of Europe’s most comprehensive satellite broadcasting systems. Next year, two next-generation satellites will enter into service and replace the current spacecraft at 13 degrees East.
“We are delighted to reinforce our longstanding relationship with TVN, as it expands its premium broadcast service in Europe. This agreement showcases the relevance of satellite as a broadcast infrastructure capable of reaching the largest audience in Europe, both today and in the years to come,” commented Eutelsat’s Chief Commercial Officer Philippe Oliva.
