[Via Satellite 04-01-2014] RRsat Global Communications Network has been selected as the key delivery partner of DFH Network for North American distribution. This will be the first package to be distributed via RRsat’s fourth platform of the Galaxy 19 (G19) satellite, with revenues expected to exceed $6 million.

DFH Network is the premier producer and provider of Turkish programing in North America, providing entertainment, news and sports programming to Turkish speaking residents. RRsat’s package will include uplinking DFH’s packaged offering to the G19 satellite to allow for Direct-to-Home (DTH) distribution across North America.

“RRsat is pleased to welcome DFH Network as the first package on our new Galaxy 19 platform,” said Ohad Har-Lev, president of RRsat America. “With our new G19 platform we are able to provide broadcasters with a simple, high-quality delivery solution that will continue to grow and improve. This, coupled with our track record and full range of media services we offer, is proving to be very compelling for customers who are looking for the best solution for domestic as well as global content distribution.”
