[Via Satellite 12-09-2015] U.K.-based Arqiva has entered a multi-year commitment with Eutelsat Communications for a 15th transponder at the 28 degrees east video neighborhood to serve the country’s Direct-to-Home (DTH) broadcasting market.

The additional transponder will support the significant growth in HD channels operating on the Sky and Freesat platforms in the U.K. So far three channels, including Record TV HD and Daystar Television, have signed up for a new all-HD platform.
