Eutelsat has announced the finalists for its 2014 TV Awards.

Chosen by a cross-industry jury, chaired by Duilio Giammaria, the award-winning RAI journalist, that included Robert Briel from Broadband TV News, they were chosen from over 100 channels from over 20 countries, including some from Latin America for the first time.

Now in its 17th year, the Eutelsat TV Awards is a unique international event identifying and rewarding excellence in satellite broadcasting. The winning channels in nine thematic categories will be honoured at a ceremony in Rome on November 28 presented by UK television journalist, Kate Silverton.
