SatLink Communications has announced that it is adding services in Sub-Saharan Africa with new Ku-band capacity on the soon to be launched AMOS-5 satellite. The new Ku-band will take advantage of SatLink’s strategic location, added value broadcast services and Playout solutions to maximize the company’s position as a Gateway to Africa for international and local broadcasters.

“As a provider of global TV distribution services, SatLink offers a variety of solutions to access Africa. We are excited to add more C-band and Ku-band platforms on AMOS-5 at 17°E that complement our African distribution via other satellites. Africa is a growing market and we look forward to enabling more broadcasters to reach their audiences,” commented SatLink’s CEO David Hochner.
