TeleSat set for December launch

TeleSat, the fledgling Belgian French language DTH platform, has announced it is now set for an official December launch. The operator is part of the Airfield Media Group, which also operates TV Vlaanderen and Canal Digitaal Satelliet.

In the past few months, TeleSat has secured distribution deals with the Belgian French language public broadcaster RTBF and the RTL Group for the distribution of the most important channels in Wallonia.

TV Vlaanderen, which targets the Dutch speaking population Belgium, recently announced it had reached 70,000 DTH homes.
