Bangladesh has its first direct-to-home (DTH) satellite TV service after the launch of RealVU by operator Beximco Communications at outlets in Dhaka, Sylhet and Chittagong.

Reception equipment for the DTH service, which is a joint venture between Beximco and the Russian investment and industry holding company GS Group, will be available in authorised partner outlets in every other division in Bangladesh from August 2016. The pay-TV service’s signal is already available across the South Asian country.

“RealVU customers will be able to watch 105 channels with our package and enjoy digital quality picture and clear sound. The package will involve the most popular TV channels including five in HD format. Moreover, the RealVU subscribers will enjoy other advantages such as recording function and smart electronic programme guide,” said Dmitry Lapitskiy, CEO, Beximco Communications Limited.

A set-top box and dish antenna from an authorised partner are required to receive RealVU, at a cost of BDT 4,499 (US$57.37) + VAT. RealVU will provide its customers with a two-year warranty for the set-top box along with 24/7 customer service, while the partner will install the reception equipment.

Beximco was awarded a DTH licence by the Bangladesh Government in December 2013.
