TRT WORLD now available on Arabsat

Arabsat, the communications satellite operator in Saudi Arabia is linking up with Globecast, the global solutions provider, to launch TRT World in high definition on Arabsat’s Badr-6 satellite at 26o E.

Globecast will provide connectivity through its seamless fibre network and Paris NOC to enable the uplink of the TRT news platform (from Turkey) to the Badr-6 satellite of Arabsat. This will further contribute to the distribution of the channel over the Middle east and Northern African countries.

Khalid Balkheyour, President  & CEO of Arabsat, said that: “This new HD channel will further grow our HD neighborhood and reinforce our HD dominance in MENA. We are grateful to once again be working with our long-term partner Globecast for the distribution of a premium channel, which will undoubtedly attract a wide range of viewers”.

On the other side, Philippe Bernard, CEO from Globecast Group, is positive about the tie up: “We’re delighted to once again be teaming with Arabsat, our trusted partner in the Arab region, for this important project. We’re seeing a lot of growth in the 26° neighborhood lately, especially in terms of exclusive content. This region is perfectly suited to our customer, TRT World”.
