Winners Announced Of The Eutelsat TV Awards 2012!

VENICE, November 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

"Creative programming, engagement with viewers and a feel for new trends are core to great TV," said Michel de Rosen, Eutelsat CEO, at tonight's Eutelsat TV Awards ceremony in Venice.

The Eutelsat TV Awards is a unique international event recognising the quality of thematic satellite TV channels. Over 120 channels from 19 countries participated in this year's competition, their programming formats, innovation and audience relationship judged by an independent panel of media experts representing the world's most dynamic broadcasting markets.

Simon Albury, former Chief Executive of the Royal Television Society and patron of this year's jury added: "It's no understatement to say that 2012 has been an historic year for TV. Audience records were broken around the world for mega events like the Olympics and broadcasters showed their boundless capacity to create innovative programming ideas and to turn the arrival of new platforms and changing viewing habits to their advantage. At the end of the day great viewing is about great content and this is what we have celebrated tonight at the Eutelsat TV Awards. Congratulations to all participants!"
