UK satellite broadband customers could soon have the option of bundling their internet service with high definition TV.

Avanti Communications – which launched that HYLAS 1 satellite into orbit in autumn 2010 – has teamed up with Hughes Europe to develop a new satellite dual-feed antenna solution.

This combines broadband and HDTV data signals, meaning the service provider could soon launch television and satellite broadband packages.

Matthew O'Connor, Chief Operating Officer at Avanti, said the new offering will help position the firm to meet the continuing large demand for consumer broadband in underserved regions of Europe.

"It's a giant step forward to tap this huge market," he commented.

"[This] is evidence of our strong and growing partnership - combining Hughes global leadership in providing high-speed satellite internet service, with Avanti’s launch of more HYLAS satellites in the coming years."

Satellite broadband services are available to businesses and households in any location, meaning they are particularly suited to customers in remote rural areas.
