STRONG boost for African pay-TV services

SMO (Strong Media SAL-Off-Shore) has leased capacity on the EUTELSAT 16A satellite to deploy a diversified range of English, French and Arabic-speaking television services over Sub-Saharan Africa.

“Ma TELE” and “Shashatee”, SMO’s new French and Arabic-speaking pay-TV services are gearing up for launch in April, joining the established “My TV” service that has been resized and rebranded as “My TV Smart” on EUTELSAT 16A, taking advantage of the satellite’s powerful African footprint.

“We are excited to announce the launch of our new services for Sub-Saharan Africa,” says Samer Mourad, Chief Operating Officer of SMO. “We selected EUTELSAT 16A for its solid video neighbourhood and significant audience penetration in our target markets. We are more than confident that our cooperation with Eutelsat will bring the desired added value to the services we intend to deploy over the region.”
