As Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze emphasized at the Tbilisi International Conference organized by the McCain Institute and the Economic Policy Research Center, democracy is, above all else, about engagement, the engagement of the government, civil society, and media. Everyone has a role in supporting our young democracy.

Chief Columnist for Financial Time Edward Luce inquired whether the ongoing processes in Europe affect Georgia's choice because European democracy, according to him, is not the same as it used to be. In this context, the panel discussion's moderator cited the events in Poland and Slovakia, and named Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and the US president's policy.

According to Mamuka Bakhtadze, political processes do change, but values remain the same.

"Yes. It is a political process and there are some changes but values are still on the table, and these are the values that created this civilization. We are absolutely committed and optimistic about a very bright future of the European family," the Prime Minister underlined.

Channel 4 extends satellite capacity agreement with SES for Direct-to-Home broadcast services in the UK and Ireland

Luxembourg, 11 September 2018 -- British and Irish viewers will continue to enjoy reliable Channel 4 programmes on direct-to-home (DTH) platforms following a multi-year extension agreement at 28.2/28.5 degrees East with SES.

Under the agreement, Channel 4 will renew capacity on SES’s ASTRA 2E and 2G satellites to transmit a full line-up of services for the British and Irish markets.

DTH is a key technology ensuring high quality video for viewers in the British Isles, and the long-term renewal with SES of the transponders on the ASTRA fleet highlights the value both companies place on their relationship.

“We have been relying on SES’s services for 20 years and are very pleased to extend our partnership,” said Keith Underwood, Chief Operating Officer of Channel 4. “This is an important element in our strategy to enable high quality, reliable broadcast entertainment for our viewers across the UK and Ireland.”

"We are committed to supporting Channel 4’s DTH strategy and business in the UK and Ireland for the long term,” said Ferdinand Kayser, Chief Executive Officer of SES Video. “The orbital position of 28.2/28.5 degrees East is our prime neighbourhood to provide programming to this key market area, where we serve over 19 million TV homes in the UK and Ireland. We are delighted to continue delivering Channel 4’s content from this location.”
