KabelKiosk moves to 9° East
KabelKiosk, the channel and service platform operated by Eutelsat for cable operators, will transfer its entire offer to the orbital position 9° East, terminating its previous distribution via 8° West.
Through the new satellite Eurobird 9A, considerably more capacity will soon be available at 9° East. With the move, Eutelsat is laying the cornerstone for the further expansion of KabelKiosk this year, including new free-to-air and pay-TV channels, HDTV services and a digital video library.
On March 1 Eutelsat will offer all KabelKiosk channels which until now have been distributed on 8° West in parallel on Eurobird 9A. The dual distribution will end on May 31 when the signal on 8° West is switched off.
In order to inform cable operators and installers of cable networks about the technical parameters of the new satellite position and the expansion plans, KabelKiosk is conducting a nationwide seminar tour in March.
