GlobeCast goes after African DTH

Satellite distribution specialist GlobeCast will use next months Dubai CabSat to launch a new African DTH platform.

Hot on the heels of the failure of Gateways DTH bouquet, GlobeCast is attempting something a little different in the shape of a wholesale service. The new platform is the first (free) Ku-band DTH platform with coverage over sub-Saharan Africa, providing broadcasters with the opportunity to reach households across the continent, says GlobeCast.

GlobeCast is starting modestly and has one dedicated transponder on a satellite that facilitates uplink from Europe and is compliant to distribute services to IPTV or terrestrial network head-ends.

The new platform, which is an alternative to the pay TV bouquets in sub-Saharan Africa, responds to a strong demand for free-to-air Ku-band coverage of this crucial region. Several African broadcasters are already in contact with GlobeCast to secure positions in this coveted space and extend their audience to 56 African countries, says the operator.
