Tunisia: TV 7 Resumes Broadcasts On Hotbird Satellite

Tunis — The Tunisian TV7 channel has resumed its broadcasting to Europe via the Hotbird satellite without any change of frequency.

TV 7 services via Hotbird were interrupted on Wednesday January 27, following a technical malfunction of the W2 satellite which led to the interruption of 430 TV channels and some 60 radio channels.

Lanched in 1997, W2 belongs to Eutelsat which also owns the Hotbird satellite. Eutelsat owns 26 satellites and ensures the broadcasting of 3180 TV channels. On Thursday it announced on its website that it has "taken immediate measures to propose alternative solutions to all its customers".
