Kabelio, a new TV package for Swiss DTH satellite households, will launch on Eutelsat Hotbird (13° East) on October 15, 2020, featuring both domestic and international channels such as ARD, ZDF, ORF, TF1, BBC and ITV.
Dutch IPTV provider KPN will drop TV5Monde as of July 1, 2018, and replace it with public service channel France 2.
The seven main French legacy broadcasters have agreed to a simultaneous switch-off of their analogue satellite DTH transmissions. All channels will switch off in November 2011, when the last French region will turn all digital.
In France, the “new channels” reached a 28.8% audience share during the month of November, mainly thanks to the expansion of the digital terrestrial network. According to figures of Mediametrie, YTF1 now dips to 25.8%.
