satellite 13 oct 2017Media services provider Globecast will continue distribution of two France 24 channels and also broadcast a new Spanish-language high-definition (HD) channel via Intelsat 21 to operators across the Americas.

Globecast will use Intelsat 21 – a premier video neighbourhood in the Latin America region – for fibre backhaul, and will use the IntelsatOne Multi Channel per Carrier (MCPC) platform to support content distribution and global expansion. The MCPC platform is fully integrated with IntelsatOne fibre and teleport services.

“To increase our global footprint and reach new viewers with a higher quality of content, we need a reliable, expansive distribution network that can effectively tap into different regions of the world,” said Philippe Bernard, Globecast CEO. “Continuing our partnership with Intelsat and leveraging the highly penetrated Intelsat 21 video neighbourhood will enable us to deliver France 24 optimal coverage and access to more viewers in the Americas and Canada.”
