The Indonesia Channel Launches with Globecast

Indonesia’s first English language entertainment and lifestyle channel is set to make its debut across the globe via Globecast after the channel’s launch earlier this month.

From the premises of Globecast Asia’s digital media facility at Mediapolis in Singapore, Globecast is providing its playout and media management services for The Indonesia Channel, localising its content and ensuring that proper formats are available to suit to each region’s needs.

The channel can be viewed from homes across Asia Pacific via the MEASAT-3 satellite, it is also available across Europe via Globecast’s fibre delivery, and online via Globecast’s Over-The-Top model.

“Globecast is privileged to be participating in this milestone for The Indonesia Channel. We hope to bring all the features of our digital media facility to bear in providing the quality of service and operational standards that are on par with the expectations of international broadcasters,” said Darby Sanchez, Chief Executive Officer of Globecast Asia.

Dalton Tanonaka, Chief Executive Officer of The Indonesia Channel, said, “We seek to inform and entertain viewers around the world with cool and informative shows. We chose Globecast to deliver our content because of its international reputation for quality service.”

The Indonesia Channel is a privately-funded, English channel that has a programming mix of news and general entertainment including music, movies, health, lifestyle and fashion.
