GlobeCast to provide satellite distribution of Turner Broadcasting cartoon channel

September 4, 2003

World satellite transmission provider GlobeCast has begun providing network backhaul and satellite distribution of Boomerang, Turner Broadcasting’s classic cartoon channel, to viewers in France via the company’s digital Hot Bird direct-to-home satellite platform.

Transmission for the classic cartoon channel originates in London. GlobeCast’s digital media center at Gray’s Inn Road in London delivers the signal via the company’s ATM fiber network to Paris where GlobeCast provides digital encoding, monitoring and uplink to proprietary capacity on Hot Bird.

Delivery of the children’s channel on the Eutelsat Hot Bird platform extends GlobeCast and Turner Broadcasting’s long-term partnership. GlobeCast already provides channel distribution services for other major Turner Broadcasting channels including CNN and Cartoon Network Poland.
