Eutelsat FY18/19: “Challenged operating environment”

Paris-based Eutelsat says it is still suffering from a challenged operating environment which continues to weigh on the revenues of its core businesses.

At June 30th 2019, the total number of channels broadcast by Eutelsat satellites stood at 7,092, up 2.4 per cent year-on-year (+3.9 per cent excluding the disposal of EUTELSAT 25B). HD penetration continued to increase, standing at 1,551 channels versus 1,455 a year earlier (+6.6 per cent), implying a penetration rate of 21.9 per cent compared to 21.0 per cent a year earlier.
