Eutelsat selected by AfricaXP for DTH satellite services

It will transmit through the Eutelsat 16A and Eutelsat 7C satellites

Channel network and content distributor AfricaXP has signed multi-year agreements with Eutelsat Communications for Ku-band capacity on two Eutelsat satellites, positioned at 16° East and 7° East.

This capacity will enable AfricaXP to extend the reach of its DTH free-to-air TV platform, Premium.Free. Currently broadcast in West Africa, the platform will leverage the unparalleled coverage of Eutelsat’s 7° East hotspot to roll out a regionally customized offer of 23 channels across Eastern and Southern Africa from mid-February.

In addition, AfricaXP will launch an inaugural, 10 channel French language bouquet from Eutelsat’s 16° East position with its powerful footprint over French-speaking African countries.
