In a statement, Eutelsat’s chief commercial & development officer Michel Azibert said the move was aimed at accelerating migration to digital broadcasting in the region.

“iSAT and Eutelsat will use the high-power African service area of the EUTELSAT 70B satellite to broadcast a platform of channels to digital head-ends(cable) and on a direct-to-home basis beyond range of terrestrial reception,” it said.

Zuku is the second organization to offer FTA channels after Star Times Media launched theirs.
