Combining local distribution with Europe-wide signal delivery

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.

Thus, in addition to being distributed directly to millions of end-users via our various TV platforms, M7 Platform Services provides broadcasters with a high-quality full service satellite distribution solution, allowing you to use the same satellite signal for delivering your channel to third-party operators throughout Europe.

Full service solution: from uplink to head-end

M7 Platform Services takes care of the whole distribution chain: from satellite uplink to head-end reception by operators around Europe. First and foremost, we ensure that your program signal is safely encoded, encrypted, uplinked and transmitted via our pan-European satellite platform. Once your signal is on air, our highly skilled engineering team constantly monitors the quality of all satellite transmissions via our Network Operation Centre.

Additionally we provide service support for cable, telco and IPTV operators with whom you have concluded distribution agreements to ensure that they can receive, decode and decrypt your programs. This includes the provision of professional cards and modules, while our first level help desk support team remains available to assist operators so you can be assured of a continued high quality of service.

Distribution solutions tailored to your needs

Depending on your specific needs and requirements, we offer third party distribution solutions via various satellite positions (or a combination), combining Europe-wide third party delivery with carrying your channel via one or more of our local TV platforms:

The ASTRA satellites at 19.2 and 23.5 East providing you with full European reach, while also allowing you to be part of the M7 content offering in the Benelux (Canal Digitaal, TéléSAT and TV Vlaanderen), Czech Republic and Slovakia (Skylink) and Austria (HD Austria).

Eutelsat at 9 East: offering the widest European footprint, even stretching into Russia and parts of the Middle East and Africa. Furthermore, we operate our German B2B platform via this satellite position, offering you the chance to instantly reach millions of German-speaking TV homes at the same time.

Thor at 1 degree West, our prime satellite position for serving the Hungarian and Romanian DTH markets, and simultaneously providing excellent opportunities for delivering your TV channel to European operators.
