Your partner for a digital world

Satellites are the most efficient platform for delivering channel multiplexes to cable and IPTV head-ends, Digital Terrestrial transmitters, as well as directly serving homes which remain beyond the range of DTT reception.

With proven experience of DTT broadcasting in France, Greece, Italy and Ireland in Europe, and in Africa, in Algeria, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Kenya and Zimbabwe, among many others, you can rely on our experience and expertise to deliver on your promises.

Eutelsat's end-to-end turnkey solution includes satellite and ground segment, providing you with powerful regional coverage, flexibility and scalability.

Alongside our technical expertise we can help you break into the DTT market with Eutelsat's marketing team and take advantage of extensive TV market knowledge in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Reinventing the FTA satellite TV user experience

Logo_Sat-tv.jpg (Web)

Eutelsat has revolutionised the free-to-air (FTA) TV experience with Sat.tv, a new generation of satellite receivers including an enriched electronic programme guide (EPG) and TV bouquets.

With its local-first philosophy and easy-to-use navigation, Sat.tv enables greater channel discovery, for the benefit of broadcasters and audiences alike.

Channels are referenced in low-cost FTA set-top boxes, with prominent channel numbering for each relevant market, comprehensive programme information, and content discovery functionalities, maximising the conversion of massive satellite reach into real TV audience.

Available at Eutelsat’s 7/8° West and HOTBIRD 13° East orbital positions, the leading TV neighbourhoods for Europe, the Middle East and North Africa reaching over 200 million homes, Sat.tv is being progressively deployed at other Eutelsat video neighbourhoods.

7 Day+ programme guide instantly displayed on TV screens

The EPG gives viewers visibility to the entire channel line-up, with a preview of all programmes to be aired, including programme thumbnails in several languages – a first for the FTA market. 


Automatic installation and up-to-date channel list per country

All channels are automatically installed on the satellite receivers, with a fixed channel numbering. As receivers are updated automatically overnight, new channels can be accessed by viewers immediately, with no complex reinstallation or re-scanning to be done by the end-user.


Enhanced channel recognition with logos

An easy-to-use, graphic-based navigation presents viewers with the channel name, logo, and channel genre, written in the local language (including Arabic script). Referenced with a single channel number, they can be discovered by filtering on a specific channel theme. This makes relevant channels easier to find by audiences who are interested in specific genres. 


Increased ad revenues through regional channel referencing

National broadcasters can be found more easily by their target audience. Broadcasters can also drive different audiences to different video feeds and customise advertising to specific audiences. By combining the massive audience of satellite broadcast, with targeted engagement, Sat.tv helps boost advertising revenues. 


Strengthening your linear TV audience

Sat.tv improves your end-user experience, attracting more viewers to a channel's content, which means more value for advertisers and more revenue for the channel.


Available on a new generation of free satellite receivers

Sat.tv runs on low-cost set-top boxes and is being rapidly implemented by a wide range of set-top box manufacturers. It is free-of-charge for set-top box vendors, as well as for broadcasters operating at Eutelsat’s video hotspots. 


Deliver a multiscreen experience with video streaming over satellite





Satellite Multiscreen increases a broadcaster’s reach to mobile screens in areas where internet is not sufficient. Content multicast over satellite can be watched on IP devices, irrespective of the quality of the internet connection, enabling broadcasters to distribute content to all screens and regions, no matter how remote their audience.

As we increasingly use our mobile devices to access video content and stream live events, we want to enjoy the same content experience we have at home, wherever we are. However, at public venues visitors often cannot reliably stream video content on their mobile devices without suffering buffering issues when demand is high. 

By leveraging the power of satellite broadcasting, broadcasters and public venue owners can address this untapped audience and provide a high-quality, cost-effective viewing experience for visitors. They can deliver high quality video streaming services to mobile devices, irrespective of local internet connection speeds or network congestion.

Combining Eutelsat’s extensive satellite fleet with local Wi-Fi distribution, linear TV and video distribution to mobile devices has never been more reliable or better quality, even in areas where there is limited terrestrial coverage - no matter how many simultaneous viewers, and without consuming any mobile data allowance.

Thanks to the inherent strength of linear multicast over satellite, the superior quality of video distribution extends access to video content on mobile devices beyond terrestrial networks, and helps broadcasters maximize both reach and content monetization.


Get your content where you need it

We provide broadcasters and news programmers with contribution links for original, post-produced and fully contributed news, sports and entertainment segments for finished programme integration.

Whatever your signal type, whether it’s for DTH broadcasting, DTT rebroadcasting, radio or data, our contribution services ensure signals reach the right uplink station or multiplexing platform for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint transmissions.

We also offer a cost-effective service for contribution links to digital TV platforms on Eutelsat satellites and in particular for Eutelsat’s Digital Platforms. By minimising the overall costs of digital platform services, we make platform access attractive to smaller broadcasters.




High-quality video distribution

To ensure high-quality video distribution, four primary elements must all be in place before a channel can focus on creating quality content: hosting, service quality, resilience and recovery.

Eutelsat operates a full range of ground services for cost-effective access to our satellite fleet, to ensure channels deliver the highest standards of quality to audiences.
