IBC 2010 AMSTERDAM. Greeces Hellas Sat hopes to secure additional capacity from another satellite operator to meet demand from Romania and Bulgaria, where it provides services to the DTH platforms Dolce and Bulsatcom respectively.

Speaking to Broadband TV News, Christos Papachristos, sales manager, SE &E Europe, Hellas Sat, said that the companys single satellite Hellas-2, which is located at 39 degrees East, is the only part of the OTE group that made a profit last year and could easily fill a second satellite. However, it has no plans to launch one of its own for some time.

He added that Bulsatcom, which is interested in expanding its activities into Serbia, may also co-operate with Romtelecoms Dolce to make more efficient use of existing capacity.

Commenting on the market in Greece, Papachristos said that the planned launch date of OTEs DTH platform has been put back from this month to December.

The service will compete with Multichoices Nova, which is distributed by Hot Bird and currently has around 500,000 subscribers.

OTE also began building a FTTH network before the onset of the economic crisis that it has yet to complete.

The telco, which is backed by Deutsche Telekom, is planning a number of cost-cutting measures.
