Leveraging all the advantages of satellite broadcast, SmartBEAM brings rich video content and a high-quality user experience to IP-native screens, whether in homes or public venues, such as hotels or shopping malls.

CONNECTED TV

Direct-to-Home connected TV

Eutelsat’s SmartLNB for Direct-to-Home antenna opens the door for broadcasters to operate linear television and connected TV services directly by satellite.

The SmartLNB is a new-generation electronic feed connected to an antenna with an embedded transmitter for interactive applications such as HbbTV, pay-per-view, social networking, personal subscription management and live show participation (voting, comments …).

It will transform mass market Direct-to-Home satellite services by enabling broadcasters and platform operators to bolt interactive value-added services onto broadcast platforms, circumventing viewer dependency on terrestrial fixed and mobile networks.
