LUXEMBOURG — TVMonaco, the state-owned public broadcaster of the Principality of Monaco, signed a multi-year agreement with SES S.A. to launch and distribute its new HD channel to millions of homes across Europe from SES’s prime TV neighbourhood at 19.2 degrees East as well as to Middle East and North Africa from MonacoSat-1 at 52 degrees East.

TVMonaco delivers high-quality news, sports, talk shows, documentaries and other programming. The channel is designed to be a global broadcast platform with news and information promoting tourism and innovations in Monaco as well as to showcase Monégasque culture.
