    MultiChoice Secures Pre-launch Satellite Capacity on Intelsat 20

    Contract a Significant Milestone in Intelsat’s 45-year History

    Pembroke, Bermuda, 11 September 2009

    Intelsat, Ltd., the world’s leading provider of fixed satellite services, announced that South African direct-to-home (DTH) television operator, MultiChoice, signed a long-term, multi-transponder agreement for satellite capacity. The agreement extends and expands MultiChoice’s existing contract on the Intelsat 7 satellite at 68.5º E to the follow-on satellite, Intelsat 20 (IS-20), which is slated to be launched in early 2012. The contract, which spans the 15-year expected life of IS-20, also provides restoration capacity, resulting in a more robust network platform.

    MultiChoice and Intelsat collaborated on the design of the South African Ku-band payload for IS-20, which will optimize the signal reception power for MultiChoice’s more than 2.6 million DStv customers throughout South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland and Mozambique.

    “The growth our business is experiencing is fueled by new content combined with the best technology. For almost all of the past two decades, Intelsat has been one of the cornerstones of MultiChoice’s success,” said Nico Meyer, Chief Financial Officer, MultiChoice. “This contract provides us with the transmission services we require to grow our programming platform and expand our subscriber base, and gives us the business continuity we need to provide the highest quality service to our subscribers for years to come.”

    “Intelsat’s 68.5º E orbital location is the leading video neighborhood for Africa, and a high-value orbital location for DTH service providers like MultiChoice that require the ideal coverage, resilience and reliability the Intelsat network provides,” said Flavien Bachabi, Intelsat’s Regional Vice President, Africa. “This agreement demonstrates the partnerships we build with our customers in developing customized solutions that support their long-term business objectives.”

    The IS-20 satellite, which will also replace the Intelsat 10 satellite, will provide services to Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and India. The satellite's Ku-band payload is specifically designed to provide enterprise network and DTH services into Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The IS-20’s C-band payload will provide regional and international programmers with penetration into one of the most successful cable distribution neighborhoods serving the South Asian cable communities.

    Intelsat will be exhibiting in Hall 1, Stand C71 at IBC 2009, the international tradeshow for professionals involved in the creation, management and delivery of content for the broadcasting industry, which is being held at the RAI Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 11-15 September.

    Multichoice Africa Cements Longstanding Relationship With Eutelsat Through A 20 Transponder Lease on the W7 Satellite
    Bookmark and Share
    Posted on: Fri, 22 Jan 2010 06:38:00 EST



    PARIS, January 22, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

    Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) today announced the signature of an historic contract with MultiChoice Africa, the pioneer in multi-channel pay-TV across sub-Saharan Africa. MultiChoice has signed for a total 20 Ku-band transponders for 15 years on Eutelsat's new W7 satellite
    that is now fully operating at the 36 degrees East position. Ranking as one of the largest contracts concluded by Eutelsat, this new agreement extends to 2025 a relationship between the two companies that began in 2000 with the positioning of Eutelsat's W4 satellite at 36 degrees East to support MultiChoice's DStv platform which now reaches into more than 800,000 homes in sub-Saharan Africa, excluding Southern African subscribers.

    Since the beginning of January, MultiChoice has been carrying out the transfer of television channels onto the new satellite from the 14 transponders used until now on W4 and SESAT 1 at 36 degrees East. This majority of transponders were successfully migrated by 18 January, with the last transponder scheduled to move to W7 on 1 February 2010. The additional six transponders leased on W7 will be progressively activated by MultiChoice Africa to support new services, including High Definition channels.

    With the move to W7, MultiChoice Africa has consolidated all of its Ku-band pay-TV activity outside Southern Africa onto one Eutelsat satellite. In addition to benefiting from better signal levels and improved coverage for all the regions already served from Eutelsat's 36 degrees East neighbourhood, MultiChoice Africa has extended its Ku-band service to additional countries, notably Ethiopia, which has been receiving DStv in C-band, requiring large domestic antennas.

    In a further step to consolidate the relationship, Eutelsat will actively support the MultiChoice Resource Centre (MRC) programme which uses the digital satellite platform to enhance the learning and teaching experience in over 710 schools across Africa. Eutelsat will further support MultiChoice's objectives and will deliver additional educational content focused on building knowledge and understanding of satellite applications and engineering.

    Collins Khumalo, President of MultiChoice Africa said: "The launch of the W7 satellite will enable us to significantly improve our DStv services on the continent while remaining at the cutting edge of African pay television entertainment. This new satellite will deliver a better DStv signal, a greater selection of channels and allow us to introduce exciting new High Definition services."

    Michel de Rosen, Eutelsat's Chief Executive Officer, responded: "After ten years of strong collaboration at our 36 degrees East neighbourhood, the Eutelsat / MultiChoice Africa partnership can now move into a higher gear with W7. In terms of capacity, coverage and power, the long-term requirements of this leading player in Africa's buoyant pay-TV market were one of Eutelsat's core priorities when we initiated this new satellite programme. We are delighted to welcome MultiChoice Africa on board W7 and that this is their satellite of choice to deliver a compelling range of digital services to African homes in 38 countries."

    About MultiChoice Africa

    MultiChoice Africa Limited is a multi-channel pay television platform providing services to 47 countries and reaching into more than 1 Million homes across the African continent and adjacent Indian Ocean
    islands. Through a range of DStv bouquets, the company provides quality television entertainment to Africa's rich diversity of cultural and language requirements.

    in the East and the KU Band IS 7 satellite which covers Southern Africa.

    Through continuous innovation in technology and assembling an excellent range of DStv bouquets, built around compelling news, as well as premium movie and sports channels, MultiChoice Africa has succeeded in adding significant value to television consumers in Africa.

    NO Daeng you are incorrect. That information your posted only relates to Intelsat 7 KU BAND staying on the IS20 satellite.... not the Cband at Intelsat 10. Nowhere does it state IS10 Cband will be on IS20.


    IT is on W7 now so they can migrate customers off Cband. Multichoice have announced it on their own forum

    http://forum.dstv.com/showthread.php?p=38277#post38277

    Hi, Our new satellite (W7) does not cover the southern part of Madagascar. It can only be recieved from 50km south of Antana and towards the north. If I say not covered I am refering to recieving it on a 1.8 m (or smaller) dish. The tests I have done in the south showed that a 1.8m barely picked up anything. If you are realy desperate I suggest experimenting with a 3.7m and you most likely will pick it up. Unfortunately I am only on the engineering side, so I do not know if you will be re-imbursed for this.

    C-Band is not an option as it will be decommisioned by the 31st of May 2010.
    If Evolution works, why so many idiots?

    It is all correct and all the MCK customers are given upto 31st may to change to Ku band from C band.
    All running decoders plus smt.cards that are products of mck are being returned for exchange of new decoders and new kapa or zeta cards (married).
    After may 31 mck goes off C band and those that havent changed to do so at their own costs.
    There will be no world cup from mck on C band 68.5E.
    This is Local published information
