Spacecom vice-president for sales Amir Carmeli said, “The AMOS-5 Ku-band is perfectly placed for delivering OFIVE TV to all of French speaking Africa. Our solution is bringing the network’s exciting content to an emerging generation of young music, fashion and lifestyle leaders.

“The AMOS-5 neighborhood at 17°E is growing fast and this is an excellent addition to the content of our French speaking bouquet.”
