TeleSat selects Hot Bird for Belgian DTH platform




In a surprise move, the Airfield Media Group has signed a long-term contract with Eutelsat for capacity on the Hot Bird neighbourhood and associated ground services for the distribution of its new French language TlSat DTH platform for Belgium. Until now, Airfield only used the Astra platform for its existing services.

The new capacity will be used to broadcast the five Belgian French-language channels, RTBF La Une and La Deux, RTL-TVi, Club RTL and Plug TV. The new distribution contract follows the news that the Belgian French language broadcaster RTBF is switching the distribution of its free-to-air international RTBFSat channel from Astra at 19 degrees East to the Eutelsat Hot Bird position.

The service is scheduled to launch in December. Direct-to-home satellite reception will be available throughout Belgium with MPEG 4 decoders (MPEG 2 compatible) using Nagravisions Mediaguard 3 encryption system.
The contract also covers provision of contribution links, multiplexing and uplinking of the five TlSat channels from Eutelsats Rambouillet teleport in France.

Airfield currently has two DTH platforms, Canal Digitaal Satelliet for The Netherlands and TV Vlaanderen for Dutch speaking Belgium, using the dual Astra positions of 19 and 23.5 degrees East.
