Azam TV migrates services to Eutelsat 7C, extends contract with additional capacity

Tuesday 22 September 2020 | 08:39 CET | News
Satellite operator Azam TV has agreed a multi-year extension of its contract with Eutelsat, committing to buy incremental bandwidth following the migration of its video platform from the Eutelsat 7B to the Eutelsat 7C satellite. The latter, co-located with 7B at 7 degrees East, has increased Eutelsat's capacity for this neighbourhood to support growth in the sub-Saharan African broadcast market. From the 7-degree position, Azam TV will distribute around 120 channels in SD and HD quality across Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, Kenya and Rwanda.
