Dubai, Paris– The Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU) has recognised Eutelsat as a driving force behind the massive expansion in the number of television channels available to homes throughout the Middle East and North Africa region.

Eutelsat was named Satellite Operator of the Year at the ASBU Broadcast Pro Middle East awards. This follows the successful launch and deployment of the EUTELSAT 8 West B satellite, which is already leased at full capacity to broadcasters. Broadcasters will benefit from increased power, more coverage options, higher in-orbit security and industry-leading signal resilience.
