Georgian media company JSC Global Contact Consulting has selected Eutelsat Communications for a new satellite broadcasting platform called Global TV.
The company has signed a multi-year lease for capacity on the Eutelsat 36B satellite, using the widebeam footprint that provides premium coverage of Georgia, surrounding regions and as far as Western Europe.
JSC Global Contact Consulting will initiate satellite broadcasting this month, starting with four FTA channels and expanding to include both Georgian and international channels.
It plans to install several thousand dishes across Georgia over the next two years, which will be pointed to Eutelsat 36B at 36° East.
