Euronews renews carriage deal with SatLink Communications

MUMBAI: SatLink Communications, a leading teleport delivering content to every corner of the world, has renewed deal with Euronews to transmit the 24-hour news channel on SatLink‘s AsiaSat 5 C-band Multiple Channels Per Carrier (MCPC) digital platform.

Euronews will use AsiaSat 5 as a gateway to extend its channel coverage in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East regions. Euronews will continue to broadcast in ten languages alongside SatLink and AsiaSat 5‘s growing list of leading international news broadcasters such as France 24, NTV-MIR and Al Jazeera and leading news agencies including Thomson Reuters and APTN.

Euronews Deputy Director Worldwide Distribution Arnaud Verlhac said, "SatLink‘s state-of-the-art infrastructure, teleport facilities and strategic location has enabled us to distribute our content from Europe in one seamless hop to the Asia Pacific mass markets. As a multi-lingual news organisation that is working to connect the west to the east, we needed a partner and premium satellite that was not only able to connect us with all of the major terrestrial, satellite, cable, IPTV platforms, but that would also be able to give us immediate access to the growing pay TV market across Asia. By renewing this commitment we have the added benefit that most Asian hotels downlink from AsiaSat 5, further expanding our audience reach."

He continued: "In renewing this agreement we know we are alongside other reputable news organisations taking advantage of the benefits AsiaSat 5 can provide; it is, reliable and well established, helping us directly reach almost two thirds of the world‘s broadcast population via one satellite. SatLink‘s ability to provide the full end-to-end broadcast solution that we required for our distribution from Europe validated our decision to continue using its unrivalled services on AsiaSat 5."

SatLink CEO David Hochner added, "We are delighted and honoured that Euronews has renewed its agreement with SatLink to distribute its content from Europe to the Asian market. The region has seen exponential growth in recent years and broadcasters across the globe are now looking for ways to provide content to this vast audience. Working with many Tier One international broadcasters, such as Euronews, SatLink continues to provide the gateway both in and out of Asia on the region‘s premium satellite platform, meaning that news organisations can be confident that its content is available and distributed reliably and to the required high quality 24/7."
