LAGOS, (CAJ News) – A Nigerian satellite firm has selected an Israeli service provider to transmit top international premium channels to its viewers throughout the West African country.

In a statement, Spacecom announced the AMOS-5 satellite at the 17°E prime orbital position has been chosen to transmit ConSat TV (Continental Satellite), a leading direct-to-home provider in Nigeria.

ConSat TV, owned by Continental Satellite, offers its digital Pay TV platform with over 50 channels to Nigerian viewers.

Mayo Okunola, CEO of ConSat TV said as a growing presence in Nigeria’s market, ConSat TV is a leading DTH provider competing with other market leaders.

“With AMOS-5 at 17°E, we are utilizing an excellent satellite that covers all of Nigeria with a powerful signal. Our vision is to provide exciting television with a mix of international, premium and local channels that can be enjoyed by all Nigerians,” said Okunola.

The Nigerian TV market, Pay TV and free to air, is one of the most dynamic and exhilarating markets in Africa, said Eitan Mesika, Spacecom’s VP Sales West Africa.

Mesika added DTH is particularly popular and AMOS-5 at 17°E reached every corner of Nigeria with its strong signal and smooth reception.

“We are proud to be supplying ConSat TV with the highest quality satellite services and working with them will take the market forward into a great future,” said Mesika.
