The Tennis Channel has renewed and expanded its commitment with BT Media and Broadcast for transmission services.
The commitment was renewed for an additional two years, and was expanded to include an increase in the volume of produced events and use of BT's fleet of mobile trucks, fly-aways and extensive global fiber and satellite network.
BT will take primary responsibility for providing end-to-end domestic and international services. That includes advising The Tennis Channel on the most suitable transmission solution for each event, booking and deploying the required resources on BT's global network and those of any third parties, and overseeing all aspects of the transmission on the actual day of each event.
BT will provide The Tennis Channel with the ability to gather content for distribution from worldwide tennis venues to BT's media center in Los Angeles using BTM&B's global satellite and fiber infrastructure, including domestic and international space, fiber and mobile transmission solutions.
