MEASAT Satellite Systems has signed an agreement with PT Central Tivi Digital (Centrin TV) to support Centrin TV’s direct-to-home (DTH) service in Indonesia.

Under the agreement, which includes PT Patra Telekomunikasi Indonesia as a local partner, MEASAT will provide Ku-band capacity on the MEASAT-3a satellite for the platform.

Centrin TV is a new DTH operator serving the Indonesian pay TV market. It focuses on family orientated entertainment and includes channels like Disney, Nickelodeon, Universal, HBO, CNN International and Discovery.

“MEASAT is delighted to have Centrin TV as a core customer on our MEASAT-3/3a DTH platform,” said Yau Chyong Lim, senior director of sales and marketing at MEASAT.

“Centrin TV is the second Indonesian pay TV provider to join our 91.5°E DTH neighbourhood.”

The MEASAT-3 and 3a satellites currently support five DTH platforms across Malaysia, Brunei, India and Indonesia.
