Intelsat, GlobeCast to launch new European DTH platform
Intelsat and GlobeCast are expanding the reach of international broadcasters across Europe through the joint launch of a new Ku-Band direct-to-home (DTH) television platform on Intelsat 905.
The new offering presents international programmers — particularly programmers from Africa and Asia — with the opportunity to reach foreign nationals who reside in Europe.
The platform will initially support 12 or more digital channels, and will grow as the expected international TV community develops. Intelsat will host the DTH platform on its Intelsat 905 satellite located at 335.5 degrees E, while GlobeCast will provide uplink, multiplex and conditional access services from Europe.
