Eutelsat hits five as broadcasters book up Euro 2012 capacity

Joseph O'Halloran RapidTVNews | 03-06-2012


A week before the big kick off for the Euro 2012 football tournament in Poland and the Ukraine, Eutelsat has revealed that capacity on five of its craft has been booked by broadcasters around the world.

Namely, the leading satellite provider will be covering Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia with its Eutelsat 3A, Eutelsat 3C, Eutelsat 10A, Eutelsat 16A and Eutelsat 33A satellites. The coverage forms part of the infrastructure put in place by rights holders to enable viewers to watch the 31 matches in eight stadiums.

Two longstanding Eutelsat customers have also inked deals for extra capacity. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has concluded a contract for five additional transponders on Eutelsat 3A, Eutelsat 3C and Eutelsat 10A for live transmissions of matches as well as interviews and highlights to the EBUs 85 members in 56 countries in and around Europe. Meanwhile the increasingly influential Al Jazeera Sports has booked two extra transponders on Eutelsat 3C for the duration of the event to deliver signals to its studios in Europe and the Middle East.

Eutelsats Booking Centre will also co-ordinate allocation of capacity for minimum periods of 15 minutes in advance and throughout the championship.
