Neterra Communications Ltd. and SpaceCom Enter in Strategic Partnership for Satellite TV Services29.11.2013
Sofia, 29 November, 2013: Bulgarian telecommunication company Neterra Communications and SpaceCom, operators of the AMOS brand communication satellites, announced today the start of a strategic partnership between the two companies regarding satellite Direct-to-home (DTH) TV services, as well as video distribution to cable head-ends, VSAT communications, broadband Internet services via AMOS-2 satellite (and after its end of activity – via AMOS-6).
The white-label DTH platform for TV services is called “W4” and enables operators to offer DTH services to end-users. More than 60 TV channels will be offered via “W4” and soon Neterra Communications will expand the list with HD channels. The service will be distributed on AMOS-2 satellite, located at 4º West. White-label is a model that enables a DTH service, provided and supported by one company to be distributed by other TV operators under their own brand.
Launched in 2003 to Spacecom’s 4ºW orbital hot spot, the AMOS-2 satellite operates in Ku-band and offers customers a wide range of communications and broadcasting services to Europe and the Middle East. Plus, the AMOS-2 satellite is co-located with the AMOS-3 satellite for complete in-orbit redundancy to ensure backup capabilities and total service reliability.
