Eitan Mesika, Spacecom’s VP sales West Africa, added: “The Nigerian TV market, pay-TV and free to air, is one of the most dynamic and exhilarating markets in Africa. DTH is particularly popular and Amos-5 at 17 degrees East truly reaches every corner of Nigeria with its strong signal and smooth reception.
