The first commercial direct to home satellite broadcasting of a linear
1080p television channel will commence in Africa later this year, as
the result of the agreement by Sahara Media of Tanzania to broadcast
the Landscape Channel in full HD, commencing this autumn. This is a
first for technology and for Africa.

LandscapeHD will be available throughout Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda,
Rwanda, Malawi, Mozambique and Burundi with a satellite footprint
covering East and Central Africa. LandscapeHD is a languagelesss
instrumental music channel showing the beauty of the natural world in
the highest technical quality available to satellite broadcasters. 

LandscapeHD is a free to air music channel funded by national
government tourism advertising, as well as global and local brand
advertising, in a new languageless format only seen on the Landscape
Channel. It takes global languagless tourism and destination
advertising, previously used on the internet, and delivers it into
traditional television broadcast homes using its new proprietary
mini-server IP distribution system. This is connected to normal
in-home television services (such as cable, satellite and now the fast
developing connected tv market).

This unique distribution system is expected to deliver a raft of new
specialist music channels into traditional television distribution
over the coming twelve months, as distributors discover how this new
technology can deliver specialist music channels anywhere in the
world, without the traditional costs associated with broadcast servers
and rights societies determined to squeeze the life out of minority
music channels by the charges they levy for specialist music at the
same rate as pop music.

Editors note: LandscapeHD delivers its television signal globally
from one source into any television distribution system anywhere in
the world using a broadcast television server that costs less than the
cost of an iphone and is about the same size. This technology delivers
a 24 hour music television channel into any country anywhere in the
world and into any format (adroid, smartphone, tablet, operating
system or television system) without any cost to the user. Nick Austin
was the co-founder of the Beggars Banquet music label (now often
referred to as the fifth major) and is committed to the concept of
delivering specialist msuic channels into television as the new store
for music.
