[Satellite TODAY 06-11-12] GlobeCast
has signed a contract with Phoenix Chinese News & Entertainment
to broadcast content to Europe via the Eutelsat
9A satellite, the company announced June 8.
Phoenix programming is already present in Asia and the United States. GlobeCast will bring the content to the European market for the first time, providing the network access to a potential 5 million homes in Eutelsat 9A’s footprint.
The Eutelsat 9A satellite is located at the 9 degrees East orbital slot, providing satellite TV homes across continental Europe with a range of channels that includes a growing offer for Asian communities.
“Eutelsat 9A’s proximity to Eutelsat’s popular Hot Bird satellites also enables Info News to tap into the significant direct-to-home audience at Eutelsat's popular Hot Bird video neighborhood. The channel will propose reception from both neighborhoods using the Eutelsat-developed ClipSat add-on to a satellite dish,” GlobeCast said.
