Optimised for high growth broadcast markets
TV channels broadcast
EUTELSAT 7 WEST A has two beams giving superior coverage across the Middle East, including the Gulf States, as well as North Africa and North-West Africa.
The satellite broadcasts television and radio programmes in the Middle East and North Africa, consolidating Eutelsat's leadership at 7° West within the 7° West/8° West neighbourhood. The attractiveness of the 7° West orbital position is reinforced by the satellites of Eutelsat’s partner, the Egyptian operator, Nilesat.
7° West is the number one broadcasting position in the Middle East and North Africa with nearly 900 TV channels on Eutelsat and Nilesat satellites as of 30 June 2012 broadcast to more than 40 million households (source: Nilesat).
