Satellite and Internet combine for new TV experience

Belgian telecom provider Mobistar has launched a hybrid satellite/internet TV offer to provide phone customers with extended television flexibility and choice. Mobistar TV combines DTH satellite TV with DSL Internet to provide over 500 television and radio by satellite and interactive services, catch-up TV and content-on-demand via the Internet, along with programme recording management via a smart phone.

Satellite television, including Flemish national channels, HD and 3D channels, and a wide range of European free-to-air channels, is delivered to Mobistar TV users direct from the ASTRA satellites. President and CEO of SES ASTRA, Ferdinand Kayser said: "The combination of DSL and DTH reception brings together two excellent infrastructures, with satellite as the ideal broadcast infrastructure for high quality TV and DSL as the most suitable means for providing interactivity and on-demand services. We expect this trend towards hybrid solutions to increase."
