NEWS: LUXEMBOURG & FRANCE JOINT VENTURE TO BROADCAST PAN-EUROPEAN SATELLITE RADIO & TV SERVICES TO MOBILES by GRANT GODDARD

www.grantgoddard.co.uk November 2006

Two of Europe’s largest satellite operators, Luxembourg’s SES and France’s Eutelsat, have joined forces to launch a pan-European satellite-delivered radio and TV capability that can deliver content to mobile devices. The 50:50 joint venture, requiring an initial investment of €130m, intends to launch a six-ton Alcatel satellite in early 2009 that will deliver subscription broadcast services to owners of mobile phones, car radios and handheld devices in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain. The announcement is intended to spur European equipment manufacturers and governmental agencies to provide the hardware and regulatory framework for direct mobile reception from satellite.
