GlobeCast signs deal with Showtime

GlobeCast has signed a new five-year deal with Showtime Arabia to provide content management and delivery services for 13 of its global channels, with services provided ranging from multiplexing, uplink and aggregation to playout from GlobeCast’s central London operations center.

Dubai-based, pay-TV network Showtime Arabia has a three-year working relationship with GlobeCast and has now expanded that relationship to include playout services in addition to transport. The feeds for 13 of Showtime Arabia’s international channels are received via satellite and fiber at GlobeCast’s operations center in central London for aggregation and multiplexing followed by fiber delivery to GlobeCast’s Brookmans Park facility north of London, where it is uplinked to the Nilesat 102 satellite located at 7 degrees west.

GlobeCast’s upgraded Content Management Suite in central London offers playout and signal transport under the same roof. GlobeCast’s playout services, including opt-out, time delay and cover-up, will be used by up to seven of Showtime’s channels.
