Switzerland’s Kabelio AG has selected Eutelsat’s Hotbird satellite neighborhood to launch a new Swiss direct-to-home HD platform.
The pair have signed a multi-year contract that will allow Kabelio to leverage the reach of the satellite to target Swiss audiences at home and throughout Europe.
The new Kabelio channel line-up was launched in mid-October and features both domestic and international channels, including 34 premium TV channels in HD. These premium channels span across entertainment, sport, news and documentaries, and are supplemented by a range of free-to-air channels in a number of European languages.
Eutelsat’s Vice President of Sales, DACH, CE & SE Europe Apostolos Triantafyllou said: “We are delighted to welcome Kabelio aboard HOTBIRD and to support the launch of a new HD platform in Europe. This agreement highlights the unmatched reach of Eutelsat Hotbird, as well as the resilience of the European broadcast landscape.”
Kabelio Chief Executive Officer, Damir Krilcic added: “Kabelio’s new platform aims to address Swiss DTH satellite households offering them a range of premium channels many of which have not previously been offered by satellite. We are excited to partner with Eutelsat to launch this new service offering.” https://www.digitaltveurope.com
