Launched only 15 months ago, Belgian Satellite platform TV Vlaanderen has announced that it has reached 50,000 subscribers.
“Nobody thought it could be done” said Kurt Pauwels, MD. “Launching a DTH platform in a region with near complete cable coverage is quite a challenge.”
TV Vlaanderen is a subsidiary of Dutch Canal Digitaal Satelliet. The operator will also start to offer an additional thematic bouquet if channels later in the year as well as a number of HD channels early next year. The offer will include a new Philips HD satellite receiver, in two versions, one as a zapper box, the other with PVR.
