Eutelsat Quantum, the partnership with Facebook, the first all-electric satellite, SmartLNB technology, the first live worldwide UHD broadcast… these are some of the major announcements we made in 2015 in response to client and user expectations for a wider satellite experience. 2016 has just started and is set to follow the same trend as the upcoming highlights show.
Aiming high : three launches in three months
Three satellites will follow one other into space in quick succession in the coming weeks to provide continuity and expansion capacity across Europe with EUTELSAT 9B and across Latin America with EUTELSAT 65 West A and EUTELSAT 117 West B. Ready to support broadcast delivery of key sporting events, including Euro 2016 and the Rio Olympic Games, these new satellites will enable communities around the world to enjoy highly-awaited TV moments.
