Sky Group has signed a new direct, multi-year contract for satellite bandwidth with Eutelsat to support news-gathering requirements for Sky's UK, German and Italian operations. The contract covers the equivalent of three transponders on the Eutelsat 16A satellite, whose reach includes the core news-gathering footprint of Sky Group in Europe and the Middle East.

Separately, Eutelsat has signed a framework agreement with Globecast to renew and increase transponder use across the Hotbird broadcast satellites. Eutelsat is Globecast's largest supplier of satellite capacity and, in turn, Globecast is a leading reseller of the Hotbird satellites.
