Es’hailSat has announced that Al-Jazeera Media Network (AJMN) is now using the Es’hail 1 satellite located at the 25.5-degree East hotspot neighborhood to broadcast content to the full Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
Following one year of successful dual illumination using Es’hail 1 satellite capacity and uplink facilities, Es’hailSat and AJMN said the formal switch over of broadcast services to Es’hail 1 took place on January 1 2015. All existing channels and potential new channel bundles will be available from this date on Es’hail 1.
Es’hailSat’s CEO, Ali Ahmed Al Kuwari said: “We believe that we have the optimum solution for AJMN not only in terms of technical capabilities and performance, but also in terms of independence and security of the content we broadcast. We have designed Es’hail 1 and our second satellite Es’hail 2 with advanced anti-jamming capabilities. Selecting Es’hailSat further demonstrates the value of our broadcasting independence, quality of service, and our market penetration.”
AJMN is available on Es’hail 1 on Frequency 11604.
