800,000 receivers for TNTSat, the French digital terrestrial offer via satellite, were sold during 2010. Launched in 2007, TNTSat provides access to 18 free-to-air channels, France O, the 24 regional France 3 channels, plus Arte, France 2, M6 and TF1 in HD, and is available to all French households with a satellite dish aimed at ASTRA 19.2°E and a TNTSat receiver. A total of 2.65 million TNTSat receivers have now been sold.

“The continued strong growth of TNTSAT is driven by digitalisation and the analogue switch-off in more and more French regions,” said SES ASTRA President and CEO, Ferdinand Kayser. “With 14 French regions shifting to purely digital reception in 2011, we expect the growth of TNTSAT to continue with strong momentum.”
