SES & CWG Launches New Digital Tv Platform For West Africa by donaremu(m): 2:56pm On Aug 18, 2014
SES & CWG announced on the 13th of August, 2014, the launch of a new digital TV platform for West Africa on SES's ASTRA 2F satellite at 28.2 degrees East. This independent and neutral TV platform in Nigeria will be the country's first free-to-air (FTA) DTH digital TV platform and provide the opportunity for broadcasters to reach millions of satellite homes in West Africa which are pointing their dishes to 28.2 degrees East. Besides providing additional growth opportunities for local and international broadcasters, the platform could be used to quicken the pace of digital migration. The platform provides end-to-end contribution, ground and space services to local, regional, national and international TV broadcasters across West Africa. SES will be providing the space segment and specific ground services, while CWG will be managing the teleport services as an SES partner teleport operator, providing high operational standards.
The service will start in September 2014. The 28.2 degrees East orbital position is SES's prime orbital position for West Africa and its FTA reach is one of the highest in the region. Today, SES already transmits 28 FTA channels at the 28.2 degrees East neighbourhood.

The SES Television platform will be the country’s first free-to-air (FTA) DTH digital TV platform.
According to Theodore Asampong, SES sales Director, Africa, “All that the subscriber is required to pay for is the cost of acquiring a decoder and installing a dish to receive broadcast signals. After this, they will have access to all channels available on the platform, without subscription
fees”.
