TNTSAT reaches 1 million
The French free to air satellite platform TNTSAT was available in 1 million homes by the end of 2008 according to SES Astra. This comes 16 months after the launch of TNTSAT which was made available as an alternative source of Terrestrial DTT programmes for those who would not be able to receive the terrestrial network or weren’t yet covered by it.
Services will be further extended on the 15th February 2009 when the high definition channels TF1 HD, France 2 HD and Arte HD are added to the satellite platforms services.
