Paris, 26 March 2007
Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) and RBC-TV, the Russian business television
channel, today announced the signature of a five year contract for lease of capacity on the HOT
BIRD 6 television satellite for free-to-air broadcasting over Europe, the Middle East and North
Africa.
This new agreement illustrates RBC-TVs objective to initiate international expansion beyond its
core markets of Russia and neighbouring countries in order to reach Russian-speaking
audiences further afield who follow economic, financial, business and political events in Russia
and are interested in a Russian perspective on international business. Three years since its
launch on Eutelsats W4 satellite, RBC-TV has built strong coverage in Russia's main cities, as
well as the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus and the Baltic countries. Over these regions, the
channel is available via the leading television platforms on Eutelsat's W4 satellite, as well as via
cable networks and the Internet, and has built an estimated audience of almost 53 million
viewers, who are mainly corporate and financial executives, state officials and business opinion
leaders.
We regard boosting the channels target viewership as a priority task in terms of RBC TVs
development, General Director of RBC TV Artyom Inutin said. Until recently, our technical
opportunities have been restricted to transmitting the TV signal throughout Russia, the CIS and
Baltic states. We have launched transmission through two additional satellites, including HOT
BIRD 6, which gives us the opportunity to reach the whole of Russia, Europe, the Middle East
and North Africa.
By joining the line-up of close to 500 free-to-air channels broadcasting from the HOT BIRD
neighbourhood, Russias first business channel RBC-TV will be able to reach new target
audiences including Russian-speaking residents of foreign countries and foreign citizens who
speak Russian and have business ties with Russia, said Olivier Milliès-Lacroix, Eutelsats
Commercial Director. The launch of RBC-TV on HOT BIRD 6 will also enable Russian
tourists keep abreast with the latest news in Russian business and economics when travelling
abroad. We are delighted to have been selected to support their international expansion on
HOT BIRD 6, three years after their launch on our W4 satellite over Russia and neighbouring
countries.
