Dedicated broadcast


Full-time broadcast services from our prime 1°West orbital location

We provide a comprehensive service that covers the entire distribution process from encoding, multiplexing and uplinking satellite capacity to monitoring during transmission.

1° West offers one of the fastest growing platforms for video distribution, serving close to 18 million households in the Nordic region and throughout Central and Eastern Europe. In a fast-changing communications environment, satellite continues to play an important role in the distribution of content. Satellite is a first class platform for delivering new bandwidth-hungry TV applications including HDTV, SDTV, Mobile TV, pay per view and NVOD.

Following the successful launch of THOR 7 on April 26, 2015, the Ku-band payload, dedicated to DTH services, is now ready for commercial operation. The Ku-band payload is equipped with 11 transponders and will provide much needed growth capacity for broadcast and TV services throughout Europe, specifically in Central and Eastern Europe.

From transmitting content via one of our satellites to point-to-point distribution services via our terrestrial fibre network, Telenor Satellite is the choice provider for broadcast services in Europe.
