SatLink Communications has launched a new DVB-S2 platform on Eutelsat’s Hot Bird satellite. The platform offers wide beam coverage to the Middle East and Europe, and will support the delivery of HD and SD channels to European cable, satellite and pay TV platforms.

The Hotbird DVB-S2 platform, which will be located at 13.0 degrees East, supports the Italian TV platform’s conditional access system.

“The launch of the new Hot Bird DVB-S2 platform is another step in our continued development of SatLink’s services and offerings as we look to address the needs of both broadcasters and Pay TV platforms. The continuing growth of the HD market is the future for broadcasting across the regions as broadcasters look to enrich the viewer’s experience,” says David Hochner, CEO of SatLink Communications.
