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.

EUTELSAT 7C

New high-power satellite at a fast-growing video and data hotspot

 

LAUNCH: 20/06/2019

CONSTRUCTION: Maxar Technologies

LAUNCHER: Ariane 5

EUTELSAT 7C is a high-power broadcast satellite for markets in Africa, Europe, Middle East and Turkey. It is co-positioned with EUTELSAT 7B at 7° East. This improved two-satellite constellation with enhanced coverage flexibility and connectivity will take the 7° East neighbourhood to a new level.

By significantly increasing capacity over Sub-Saharan Africa, EUTELSAT 7C can accomodate several hundred additional digital channels, to support the region’s fast expanding TV market. It is also equipped with a beam providing enhanced capacity for government services over Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia, as well as a steerable beam that can cover any region visible from 7° East.

Manufactured by Maxar Technologies, and launched on 20 June 2019, EUTELSAT 7C is equipped with 49 36 MHz-equivalent Ku-band transponders.

The EUTELSAT 7A satellite, previously operating at 7° East, will be redeployed at another orbital location.
