Es’hailSat partnered with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) football club for the Qatar Winter Game vs Real Madrid, which took place in Doha on January 2. The game between two world-class football teams coincided with the effective start of operations of the Qatar Satellite Company’s first satellite, Es’hail 1, at the 26-degrees-East hotspot.
Es’hail 1 also broadcast the game live and in HD from Doha throughout the satellite’s footprint, which spans the Middle East and North Africa region.
“We are very pleased to be a partner of PSG for the Qatar Winter Game vs Real Madrid. The undisputed popularity of the sport of football in our region is a great asset for Es’hailSat to build on to reach our core viewership base throughout the coverage of our satellite Es’hail 1,” says Ali Ahmed Al Kuwari, CEO of Es’hailSat.
“The game is also the right premium content we seek to broadcast through our existing and planned satellites from the 26 degrees East broadcast hotspot.”
