Eutelsat project appeared in the late 70s through the European ambition to develop a new industry, able to build, launch and operate satellites.
1990-2010 – To conquer Europe
In the 90s, the satellite television market developed with the transition of analogic television to digital providing the starting point for the launch of television packages within Europe.
