NTDTV takes Eutelsat to court over broadcast termination

Judges in Paris will decide on 17 November whether one of the world’s largest satellite operators should be investigated for politically-motivated meddling with a client’s broadcast in a case that has taken over a year to get to court. The Paris Commerce Court held a hearing on 5 November to look at the France-based satellite company Eutelsat’s actions last year that resulted in the termination of the signal of one of their clients, New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV), which broadcasts over mainland China.
