Hellas-Sat Consortium Ltd. (Hellas-Sat) is the satellite operator from Greece and the owner and a wholesaler of capacity and services of the Greek/Cypriot Hellas-Sat 2 satellite which was launched successfully on 13 May 2003 to the 39° E orbital position in the Geostationary Satellite Orbit. The satellite was controlled via two proprietary TT&C stations located in Greece and Cyprus. Hellas-Sat has its headquarters on Cyprus. In 2013 Arabsat from Saudi Arabia acquired Hellas-Sat.
The company has developed a network of strategically located teleport partners with DVB platforms, carrying over 100 Arabic television channels, including MBC and Rotana DTH platforms and IP-based services through its two fixed beams over Europe, and two steerable beams over the Middle East and South Africa. It offers high-power, direct-to-home transmissions as well as occasional video feeds and Internet access services.
The Hellas-Sat satellite fleet reportedly caters to an audience of almost three million DTH subscribers in Central and Eastern Europe, who watch premium satellite TV services from three DTH platforms, namely Dolce in Romania, Bulsatcom and others.
