AfricaXP broadens reach via Eutelsat
Channel and content distributor AfricaXP has secured a deal giving it capacity on two Eutelsat Communications satellites.
The new capacity will allow the AfricaXP platform, currently available in West Africa, to roll out 23 channels across Eastern and Southern Africa later this month.
AfricaXP CEO Craig Kelly said: “These two Eutelsat positions offer geographic reach in Africa’s key Western, Eastern and Southern markets where they serve large audiences.”
Nicolas Baravalle, Eutelsat director of sub-Saharan Africa, said: “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.”
