Canal Digitaal to launch new HD channels on Astra 23.5 degrees East

SES Astra has signed a long term contract extension for one transponder with for its digital services and the launch of new HD channels at Astras orbital position 23.5 degrees East. Canal Digitaal thus increases its already large HDTV offering for the Dutch and Flemish Direct-to-Home (DTH) market.

Canal Digitaal has a total of six transponders on the Astra Satellite System providing services to over 900,000 DTH subscribers in the Dutch and Flemish market: four transponders on 19.2 degrees East and two transponders on 23.5 degrees East, which are being used for the existing and future HD channels.

Since the introduction of 23.5 degrees East in 2007 as a new DTH position for the Benelux market, almost 50 percent of DTH households in the Netherlands and Belgium are able to receive services via 23.5 degrees East in combination with the existing 19.2 degrees East position. For this purpose, a so-called Astra Duo LNB was developed, allowing the reception from both orbital positions via a single 60 cm dish.
