We help you to reach your audience


As a broadcaster, you want to reach the widest possible audience in the best quality and the most cost-effective manner. Especially for pan-European distribution, satellite is the ultimate way to do so. However, being on a satellite does not automatically mean people are able to watch your channel. Signals needs to be decoded, reception equipment must be tuned in and last-not-but-least: people should be aware that your channel is there and worth watching…!


That is why we offer more than just satellite capacity. Our aim is to provide you with a full service solution, allowing you to reach your target audience, either via cable or Direct-to-Home(DTH) reception. This includes both technical excellence in the sky and professional support on the ground. In short: we take care of the whole distribution chain, from uplink to living room.You just need to deliver us your signal - or we pick it up at your premises - and we will ensure your audience will be able to receive it in crystal clear quality.
