Marine satellite Television and IPTV services
Since a few years now, TECHfirm Canarias has provided Maritime TV services to thousands of seafarers worldwide.
One of our latest TVRO installation in Las Palmas (Marine TV services) was onboard the TEMIS MV, accommodation barge (presently operating on the Alen Gas Field development, offshore Equatorial Guinea).

The Scope of work of the Marine TV service included a maintenance of the existing TVRO Seatel 5004 antenna and a configuration to have it tracking the right satellite when in the footprint.
Then and relying on a partner based in Nigeria, TECHfirm Canarias supplied a bunch of DSTV Explora receivers onboard to allow the 500 Oil&Gas workers to watch TV at sea.
Considering the pandemic context, we have noticed that seafarers were away from home and family for months,… it is our paramount to offer reliable Marine TV services and reliable communications to the Maritime industry (4G and VSAT).
Since a few months now, french channels (Canal+ package) are available in West Africa through DSTV add-on. Get in touch for more details!
