Real Madrid TV launched by satellite into Asia

Real Madrid TV has been launched on Asiasat 2 by satellite operator Asiasat and its partner, Satlink Communications, which handles content transmissions. This digital platform brings television and radio services from Europe to Asia through Asiasat 2's huge C-band coverage beam and Satlink's turnaround and transmission facilities in Israel.

The launch of the new channel to Asia makes Real Madrid TV "the first soccer channel to be available globally" and enables Real Madrid to reach an avid soccer viewer market which is developing very rapidly in the region, Indian Television in Mumbai reported.
