Es’hailSat has renewed a deal with one of the largest sports and entertainment broadcasters in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region – beIN MEDIA GROUP (beIN). The Qatari satellite operator will provide satellite capacity, uplink, connectivity and operational support on Es’hail-2 satellite located at the 26 degrees East hotspot covering the MENA region. Es’hailSat announced the contract renewal on March 10.

Es’hailSat’s infrastructure includes two satellites Es’hail-1 and Es’hail-2 co-located at 25.5/26 East together with a 50,000 square meter teleport facility that provides broadcasting, playout and connectivity services across all of MENA.

“Es’hailSat is delighted to renew and build upon our long-standing partnership with beIN and expand upon the various services already provided to beIN as a prestigious anchor broadcaster at our satellite hotspot. We believe that the growing needs of beIN, on the back of world class events in Qatar and across the Middle East are best served by the expanding list of products and services that Es’hailSat continues to provide as a satellite operator and service provider,” Ali Ahmed Al-Kuwari, president and CEO of Es’hailSat said in a statement.
