MX1 to Transmit YOL TV Via SES Satellite

MX1 has been selected as the distribution service provider for YOL TV, a Turkish-language channel based in Germany, that began on June 1.

MX1 is delivering the channel via an SES satellite and is providing the satellite uplink. YOL TV broadcasts from their studio in Cologne and transfers the transmission signal via an IP connection directly to MX1. The free-to-air broadcaster's programs are now accessible to a much larger audience through the partnership with SES and MX1. YOL TV content is available via satellite only at Astra 19.2 degrees East and can be received in Turkish-speaking households across Europe.

YOL TV broadcasts predominantly Turkish-language programming, which is also distributed online, focusing on popular political and cultural topics in Turkey, Germany, and the world.

Christoph Mühleib, Managing Director Astra Deutschland, responsible for marketing and sales of Astra and MX1 in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, stated that YOL TV is welcomed as a new partner and the company is pleased that MX1 can help the channel reach a more expansive range of 118 million TV households across Germany and Europe.

Veli Aydin, managing director at YOL TV, added that this new partnership with MX1 optimizes the way the company delivers content to audiences. Through satellite broadcasting with MX1, the YOL TV program reaches more viewers than ever before, including those in the core target audience.
