Posted 15 February 2017 · Add Comment

Arabsat and ONT has announced the signing an agreement to launch a Tunisian broadcast platform on Arabsat Badr-4 at 26°E.

This platform operation will start by end of Q2, 2017 and will allow Tunisian and regional broadcasters to have a direct access from Tunis  to the growing 26°E neighborhood with a coverage encompassing MENA and Western Europe.

"This platform is the result of the long term cooperation between Arabsat and the Office National de la Telediffusion Tunisien (ONT) which had started several years ago,” said Khalid Balkheyour, CEO of Arabsat. "It will enhance  our relationship with Tunisia where Arabsat is already present through our Satellite Control Station as well as the HQ of our strategic partner ASBU. 

CEO of ONT Dhaker Baccouch added: "Expanding our cooperation with Arabsat will enable us to meet our customers needs and position ONT as a true one stop shop. We believe the 26°E neighborhood will continue its growth through the addition of  exclusive TV channels respecting the traditions of the region.”
