Paris-based Eutelsat Communications, the holding company of Eutelsat SA and the leading satellite operator in Europe for video and data services, is heading to this year's leading telecommunications event fresh from winning major new deals in the MENA region and with its eye on agreeing yet more.

The company, which claims a place in the top three global providers of fixed satellite services, only recently signed a five-year contract for capacity on its W3A satellite with Gateway Broadcast Services, which is preparing to launch a new pay-TV platform for sub-Saharan Africa.

Weeks before, in early June, the firm agreed a deal with Digiturk for capacity on Eutelsat's W3A satellite to support the continued expansion of Turkey's leading pay-TV platform. The new contract, concluded for four years, was the third signed between Eutelsat and Digiturk since November 2006 and takes the total number of transponders leased for broadcasting services by Digiturk on Eutelsat's satellites to 11.
