Hi-Impact added to Eutelsat
Nigerian HD cablenet Hi-Impact TV has begun broadcasting on European satellite platform Eutelsat.
Hi-Impact, which launched in June, will broaden its reach with its presence on Eutelsat, which is the third largest satellite operator in the world and currently broadcasts in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the US.
Victoria Odimba, assistant general manager at Hi-Impact TV, said: “Eutelsat is one of the biggest and oldest satellite operators in the world and is used for broadcasting 6,800 television stations to over 274 million homes throughout the world.”
Hi-Impact prides itself as being the first full HD channel in Nigeria. Upon its launch, it promised more educational entertainment targeted at West African Examinations Council and National Examinations Council students.
“Its HD transmission and edutainment give something different in your home. TV experience mustn’t only be about music and movies, but something educational, with high-quality teachers in your subject areas,” said Odimba.
