Azam TV shifts services to Eutelsat 7C
African pay TV operator Azam TV has migrated its video platform from the Eutelsat 7B satellite to Eutelsat 7C, alongside agreeing a multi-year extension of its existing contract and entering an incremental capacity commitment.
Azam TV will utilise Eutelsat 7C to distribute some 120 channels in a mix of standard and high definition across its footprint covering Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, Kenya and Rwanda.
Patrice Paquot, Eutelsat’s deputy regional VP of sub-Saharan Africa, said: “We are honoured to continue to partner with Azam, one of our anchor customers at the 7° East position, as it successfully expands its broadcast offer. 7° East has become a new DTH hotspot for Sub-Saharan Africa and a key pay-TV neighbourhood for Eastern Africa with some of the fastest growth rates in the region.”
Jacob Joseph, deputy CEO of Azam, added: “Every Azam TV household will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of local and international programmes with excellent signal quality. We are delighted to rely on Eutelsat to leverage the unparalleled reach of its 7° East position.”
