Telekom Srbija will offer viewers from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro access to the latest content to be broadcast from a key orbital position of 23.5 degrees east of SES. Today, SES announced it has signed a multi-year contract with Telekom Srbija, Serbia's largest telecom operator, which means Astra's multiple transponder service to launch Telekom's latest DTH (Direct-to-Home) platform Srbija, The three countries are starting simultaneously in mid-December.

We are very pleased to be in a position to strengthen our partnership with Telekom Srbija in this way, said Martin Ornass-Kubacki, vice president of sales for Central and Eastern Europe at SES Video. "The orbital position of 23.5 degrees East is the fastest orbital in Central and Eastern Europe and the territory of the Benelux countries and is therefore a position where many operators across Europe disseminate their content."
