Nov. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Press Release:

On September 22, 2012, ARABSAT took EBS (ETHIOPIAN BROADCASTING SERVICE) off the air without any warning or notice due to alleged deliberate jamming of satellite signals from Eritrea.

Eritrea’s Ministry of Information reached out to ARABSAT and requested EBS to be removed from the platform, alleging “EBS’s destructive content consciously targets Eritrea and attempts to instigate conflict.”

Apart from these groundless and generalized allegations cited herein, it did not point to a specific instance of any wrongdoing by EBS. EBS worked vigorously to address any and all concerns raised by ARABSAT to no avail.

Since EBS is purely an entertainment channel, which does not foray into politics, EBS believed the allegations in the letter lacked credibility and advised ARABSAT as such. Despite EBS’s best efforts, ARABSAT unilaterally took EBS off the air a second time in late October, again without notice. EBS has begun plans for re-launch on a different satellite platform.
