Du, the Integrated Telecommunications Company, is launching its new HD DTH platform in the Middle East and North Africa region. The company will be using the DVB-S2 transponder which has been leased recently on Eutelsat’s 7W satellite. The new development has been optimized for the rapid growth of the region’s markets.
Fahad AlHassawi, chief commercial officer at du, said: “Our customer is at the core of all our operations, and we are wholly committed to innovating and working with various partners to create and deliver solutions that optimize the end-user experience”.
“Through our New HD DTH Platform, we aim to enhance broadcast services for over 56 million homes across the Middle East and North Africa Region”, he also added.
On the other hand, in an interview by Rapid TV News, Ghassan Murat, VP of business development & strategy at Eutelsat Dubai, said: “Eutelsat is dedicated to accompanying the uptake of HD and a diversity of free-to-air channels on our satellites. Our 2016 survey in MENA confirmed the pole position of the 7/8° West neighbourhood we share with Nilesat, which serves 52.3 million homes, up from 49.7 million in 2014”.
