Neterra Communications Ltd. and SpaceCom Enter in Strategic Partnership for Satellite TV Services

Bulgarian telecommunication company Neterra Communications and  SpaceCom, operators of the AMOS brand communication satellites, announced today the start of a strategic partnership between the two companies regarding satellite  Direct-to-home (DTH) TV services, as well as video distribution to cable head-ends, VSAT communications, broadband Internet services via AMOS-2 satellite (and after its end of activity - via AMOS-6).

The white-label DTH platform for TV services is called "W4" and enables operators to offer DTH services to end-users. More than 60 TV channels will be offered via "W4" and soon Neterra Communications will expand the list with HD channels. The service will be distributed on  AMOS-2 satellite, located at 4? West.

"White-label" is a model that enables a DTH service, provided and supported by one company to be distributed by other TV operators under their own brand.

Launched in 2003 to Spacecom's 4°W orbital "hot spot," the  AMOS-2 satellite operates in Ku-band and offers customers a wide range of communications and broadcasting services to Europe and the Middle East. Plus, the AMOS-2 satellite is co-located with the  AMOS-3 satellite for complete in-orbit redundancy to ensure backup capabilities and total service reliability.
