SES Selected by TRT Turk to Reach Audiences in Sub-Saharan Africa
Betzdorf, Luxembourg (PRWEB UK) 7 December 2012
SES has announced it has been selected by Turkish public broadcaster, Türkiye Radyo ve Televizyon Kurumu (TRT), to reach audiences in sub-Saharan Africa.
TRT will use capacity on SES-5 located at 5 degrees east to broadcast its free-to-air digital channel TRT Turk and its radio channel Turkiyenin Sesi Radyosu (TRS) to the region using the satellite's unique Ka-band uplink capabilities, allowing for flexible operations between Europe and Africa.
With a line-up of almost 500 TV channels and access to nearly 25 million homes across Europe and Africa, SES' 5 degrees East orbital position provides growth opportunities for broadcasters and offers a wider choice of TV programmes for viewers. SES-5 was launched in July 2012 and complements SES' successful ASTRA 4A satellite at this orbital position providing additional and extended coverage over South Africa, North Africa, Europe and the Atlantic Ocean.
