Monday 20 November 2017 | 11:17 CET | News
SFR could soon be launching its TV offering via satellite after its channel line-up was spotted on the listings for Eutelsat 5 West A, reports Telesatellite.com. Transmitting from the five degrees west orbital position would enable the operator to reach the French direct-to-home market, which already includes DTT free-to-air and pay-TV channels, such as OCS and BeIN Sport.
