Unbrossa selects Eutelsat to launch DTH in the Caribbean

Unbrossa (Unique Broadcasting Service) has signed a multiyear, multi-transponder agreement with Eutelsat Americas for the launch of its new low-cost DTH platform for the Caribbean, called Play. The company booked capacity on the Eutelsat 117 West B satellite.
Play will offer over 125 channels, including 25 in HD. It is scheduled to launch in spring 2018, with a broad range of affordable packages. The service is designed to empower communities in less-developed parts of the Caribbean. According to Eutelsat, the platform will also be available as a solar-powered solution to reach viewers in regions not covered by the electric grid.
“This project is a major milestone as it will bring television to many for the first time, creating a significant impact on their access to information and quality of life. Play is truly the first real DTH platform tailored and built for the region”, commented Didier Alerte, CEO of Unbrossa.
