Eutelsat selected by AfricaXP for DTH satellite services across Sub-Saharan Africa

13/02/2020

Paris, 13 February 2020 - Channel network and content distributor AfricaXP has signed multi-year agreements with Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) 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.

Craig Kelly, AfricaXP's CEO, said: Premium.Free has been entertaining viewers in Anglophone West Africa for the past year by providing a pay-TV quality experience to the public free-of-charge as an unencrypted satellite service. Eutelsat's 7 East and 16 East positions offer us comprehensive geographic reach in Africa's key Western, Eastern and Southern markets where they serve large audiences. This has ignited a strong interest from our advertising partners.

Nicolas Baravalle, Director of the Sub-Saharan Africa region at Eutelsat, added: Eutelsat is delighted to be supporting AfricaXP in rolling out this multichannel Free-to-Air model across Sub-Saharan Africa.Moreover, this partnership reinforces the strength and desirability of these two orbital hotspots for the Sub-Saharan region, which are becoming increasingly sought after by broadcasters.
