TRT World Reach to Expand Global Distribution via Globecast, SES
International Turkish news platform TRT World is expanding its global distribution with Globecast on the SES fleet. TRT World started broadcasting in January from Astra 19.2 degrees east, Astra 28.2 degrees east, and SES-5 at 5 degrees east. These orbital positions were selected to reach viewers in continental Europe, U.K. and Sub-Saharan Africa.
As part of a global program and a multi-year agreement with TRT World, Globecast is extending satellite distribution of the channel around the world. Globecast is providing the technical broadcast solutions needed to achieve this expanded global delivery including worldwide connectivity and uplink distribution services using its access to 10 satellites.
TRT World is owned by Turkish national public broadcaster TRT and provides news coverage in English 24/7 from Istanbul.
