June 19, 2012 07.33 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

Bosnia & Herzegovina is likely to see the launch of its first locally operated DTH platform in early September.

Quoting unofficial sources, Teve says that it will be known as Team Sat and distributed by Eutelsat at 16 degrees East.

The new platform will initially offer viewers seven Bosnian channels, including BN Televizja, FACE tv, Al Jazeera Balkans and three from Hayat TV, among them Hayat Folk TV.

They will be joined by two channels from Serbia, along with several other services from the region.

Team Sat is expected to use Viaccess conditional access from its launch and further details about the platform should become available by the end of this month.

Although Team Sat will be the first locally operated DTH platform in Bosnia & Herzegovina, satellite services in the country are already provided by Serbia Broadband’s pan-regional operation Total TV.

The Mid Europa Partners (MEP)-backed company is also a leading player the country’s cable industry.
