Eutelsat Communications and MultiChoice Africa, one of Africa’s most prominent video entertainment companies has announced a nine-year contract for the expansion of the MultiChoice DStv platform at Eutelsat’s 36° East video neighbourhood.

We look forward to strengthening our cooperation with our longstanding satellite partner.”

Chief Commercial and Development Officer at Eutelsat, Michel Azibert said,  “This contract further anchors our cluster of high-power satellites at 36° East as a point of reference for broadcasting in Sub-Saharan Africa and our longstanding relationship with MultiChoice Africa, a video company that is a hallmark for quality and creativity.”
