Sweden’s public broadcaster SVT (Sveriges Television) service has chosen RRsat to expand its coverage all over Europe. The operator will distribute the SVT channel to Europe, Northern Africa & the Middle East over the Eurobird-9 satellite.
Over the past three years RRsat has been distributing the SVT Europa channel over its Global Network to Asia through the Thaicom-5 Satellite.
“After using RRsat´s turnaround services since 2005 for SVT Europa´s Direct-To-Home distribution to Asia, Australia and Africa, we are very pleased to expand our cooperation with RRsat to include Direct-To-Home services through Eurobird-9 satellite to Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East”, said Riffa Hänninen, Head of SVT Europa, in a prepared statement.
SVT Europa moved from its previous berth on Sirius at 5 degrees East in December, but the role of RRSat has only just be revealed.
