EUTELSAT 9B significantly expands and diversifies resources at our 9° East location for high-growth video markets across Europe. Capacity is spread across five footprints, with frequency reuse significantly increasing overall bandwidth.
A pan-European footprint delivers a wide coverage for channels seeking maximum reach into satellite homes and to terrestrial head-ends, providing connectivity to cable networks across the whole of Europe. Five regional footprints address high-growth digital TV markets in Germany, Greece, Italy, and the Nordics with the Baltics and Ukraine.
Pay-TV platforms and national DTT programmes appreciate this regional footprint model which enables them to efficiently address linguistic markets, while in parallel, leverage reception from the HOTBIRD neighbourhood with off-the-shelf dual-feed dishes.
