Arqiva has launched student channel MCE TV onto French DTH platform CanalSat (Astra, 19 degrees East). Arqiva is providing encoding, encryption, multiplexing and uplink services, as well as the connectivity between each of these elements.
Malcolm Campbell, Commercial Director at Arqiva Satellite & Media, said: “New customers are the lifeblood of any business and we are delighted that MCE TV has chosen Arqiva to launch their channel onto the CanalSat platform. A speedy launch was made possible by our provision of a robust temporary solution which has now been replaced by a range of permanent teleport services.”
MCE launched last October and is already available on cable and ADSL throughout France.
