Digiturk is a Turkish satellite television provider founded in 1999, with services starting in mid-2000. They offer both national cable television channels and their own channels, national radio, and music streams of different genres. Digiturk is also the current owner of the broadcasting rights of Turkish Super League. In addition to Turkey, they offer service throughout Europe, mainly for members of the Turkish diaspora. Reportedly, they have over 3.5 million subscribers worldwide.[1] Their service is provided from Eutelsat W3A, positioned some 35 degrees west of the more traditionally used Türksat; and is encrypted via Cryptoworks and Irdeto conditional access systems.

Digiturk made its major breakthrough when it acquired the rights to broadcast Turkish football league, which are subject to quite high prices, since the country has a great interest in football. Service eventually grew larger, and they added special channels for movies and series and such. It became HBO-like, since it had the resources to buy movies as well as many running/ended TV series earlier than cable channels.
