Hungary’s Magyar Telekom (MTel) has signed a USD7 million long-term agreement with Spacecom, the operator of the Amos satellite fleet, for the supply of its T-Home SatTV DTH (direct-to-home) service, Telecompaper reports without citing its sources. The deal will provide MTel with more bandwidth enabling it to expand the number of channels it broadcasts and create new bouquets of packages to help drive the growth of its customer base. Deutsche Telekom-backed MTel currently broadcasts over 100 channels throughout Hungary and Slovakia, including offering seven HD channels and one in 3D. Taken together, the T-Home SatTV in Hungary and its MagioTV counterpart in Slovakia use a total of 216MHz on the Amos fleet at the 4°W orbital position.
