The new Georgian DTH platform Global TV, which is distributed by Eutelsat 36B from the 36 degrees East slot, has made its debut.

According to Satkurier, it is initially showing just four channels 1TV and 2TV, which belong Georgian Public Broadcasting, Maestro and Maestro 24 but will in due course add other Georgian, and international, services to its offer.

Global TV is operated by JSC Global Contact Limited and may in due course become the main competitor to Black Sea Sat, a platform distributed by Turksat from the 42 degrees East position.

Global TV was first announced by Eutelsat in March this year.
