RTI has launched its first satellite service for Europe giving the station access to 8.1 million homes in the UK with an EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) number following shortly.
Eric Wiltsher, Director of RTI UK told us; ?Being on the same satellite as BSkyB gives RTI a fantastic opportunity to access the ever growing digital platform in the UK. However, the way RTI is configured within the satellite means that anyone, with or without a viewing card, can enjoy the programming from RTI”.
Eric Continues: ?For Slovakia; RTI on satellite will be a unique 24/7 digital platform that will share information about the great tourist areas of Slovakia, the beauty of the High Tatras and more ? whilst retaining it?s on-going commitment to it?s local FM listeners in the High Tatras. This is why we retain the balanced mix of English and Slovak. In 2006 RTI is exploring additional digital services as radio matures into the digital platform it will be worldwide in the future?.
RTI is broadcasting Free to Air on the Eurobird satellite at 28.5 East. Sky Digital owners will find the station on 12.523H 27500 2/3. RTI broadcasts on 1350AM to central/northern Europe and on 94.2 FM in Poprad and 94.8 FM in Kosice, Slovakia.
