Paris, 16 April 2015 – AREWA24, the first-of-its-kind 24-hour free-to-air Hausa-language entertainment and lifestyle channel, announces a multi-year capacity lease with Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) on the EUTELSAT 16A satellite. Leveraging the satellite’s Ku-band footprint that sweeps across sub-Saharan Africa, the channel is shifting towards a new and higher quality of broadcasting service to solidify its position as Northern Nigeria’s premiere Hausa language channel. The powerful footprint of EUTELSAT 16A enables AREWA24 to extend its reach to Hausa-speaking communities throughout Nigeria and the region, including Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Cameroon.
