7° EAST SATELLITES

The 7° East neighbourhood is a key orbital position for regional TV channels and one of Eutelsat’s fastest-growing video neighbourhoods. Over 500 TV channels already broadcast from 7° East, which serves anchor clients including Turkish pay-TV platform Digiturk, and Azam TV and Muvi TV platforms in Sub-Saharan Africa.

It has seen important growth in Turkey and the Middle East with over 8 million homes, and is a growing neighbourhood for Farsi-speaking audiences. Located just 6° from EMEA's premium HOTBIRD neighbourhood at 13° East, a simple dual-feed antenna provides a cost-effective solution for viewers to receive programmes from both 7° East and 13° East.

7° East has also become a new DTH hotspot for Sub-Saharan Africa and a key pay-TV neighbourhood for Eastern Africa with some of the fastest growth rates in the region.

EUTELSAT 7B

LAUNCHED: 14/05/2013

CONSTRUCTOR: Thales Alenia Space

LAUNCHER: Proton Breeze M

EUTELSAT 7B is co-located with the EUTELSAT 7A satellite at this new orbital hotspot for customers in South-East Europe, Turkey, the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean.

These additional resources at 7° East have increased in-orbit security, while the very high power available on EUTELSAT 7B makes it particularly suitable for Direct-to-Home (DTH) applications.

EUTELSAT 7B features five coverage zones: one high-power beam over Europe; two beams serving Europe, North Africa and the Middle East; and two beams covering Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean.
