Es’hail-2, a high-performance satellite with sophisticated anti-jamming capabilities, is located at the 26 degrees East hotspot position for TV broadcasting and significantly adds to the company’s ability to provide high quality, premium DTH television content across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
