MenaMedia UK has launched its Nilesat transponder 7 degrees West position, with full footprint coverage over the Middle East and North Africa region.

Earlier in the year MenaMedia UK launched Eutelsat 7º East transponder earlier as one of its hotspots, providing TV and radio channels with broadcasting service into and out of the MENA region.

MenaMedia UK, which offers satellite distribution, playout facilities and has three live studios, has grown rapidly since it launched two years ago.

“MenaMedia UK is going through an exciting period of expansion by consolidation its footprint in MENA region via Europe,” said Saman Baban, CEO MenaMedia UK.

Recently, MenaMedia UK has also launched its teleport facility in Sofia (Bulgaria).

MenaMedia Sofia Teleport is a regional satellite service provider offering play out and turnaround services.

Saman added: “Today, connecting the Middle East and North Africa to the world is more necessary than ever. Our vison is to combine the global and the local, giving the MENA region a safe and reliable option via direct access to the global satellite market and vice versa.”

We want to deliver your content to your audiences - wherever they may be, even if they live in areas that are isolated and beyond the reach of terrestrial networks. That's a big responsibility that we take seriously.
This is the centre that never sleeps; the centre that relays signals between broadcasters, production companies, advertisers, international satellite services and uplink companies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We have three live studios with global fibre connectivity. We probably shouldn't say this, but we're going to anyway. Our studios are one of the very best things about Mena Media. They're just so grown-up and professional.
