The deal, facilitated by the channel’s worldwide distributor Globecast, will see the channel added to the AsiaSat 7 platform, which offers C-band coverage of Asia, the Middle East, Australasia and Central Asia and Ku beams serving East and South Asia. Globecast is providing DTH distribution of TRT World, including worldwide connectivity and uplink distribution services.
