Capacity on four satellites operated by Eutelsat Communications is mobilised by German and international media to cover the German federal election on Sunday September 24, which will see up to 62 million voters go to the polls.
The equivalent of 300 hours is already booked on Eutelsat 12 West B, Eutelsat 10A, Eutelsat 16A and Eutelsat 7B by customers that include Telenor Satellite and Luxembourg’s ENEX,an association of world-leading commercial broadcasters. ENEX will draw on Eutelsat capacity to deliver to its members content produced by Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland, its local German partner.
Eutelsat’s Booking Centre coordinates allocation of occasional-use capacity across Eutelsat’s global fleet from minimum periods of 15 minutes, enabling media to report on sports, cultural, political and breaking news around the world.
