Paris, 7 November 2013 - Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) and Télédiffusion d’Algérie (TDA) today announced the signature of a capacity agreement on the EUTELSAT 7 West A satellite. The long-term contract for one 72 MHz transponder opens access for TDA to Eutelsat’s flagship 7/8 degrees West video neighbourhood that broadcasts the largest line-up of television channels across the Arab world to homes equipped for Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite reception.
The free-to-air platform launched by TDA will assemble Algeria’s existing public channels in addition to channels expected to be licensed within the framework of the country’s strategy to open its broadcasting landscape.
The channels will be available via EUTELSAT 7 West A to viewers across the Maghreb and North-West Africa. Reach will be extended to the whole of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf with the launch in 2015 of the EUTELSAT 8 West B satellite.
