Launched throughout the lower 48 US states in spring 2019, Orby TV claims to offer a high-quality and affordable service directly to consumers at a low cost with no contract and no Internet service required.

Globecast is handling Orby TV’s full broadcast operations on a 24/7 basis at its Media Center in Culver City, California. Using its fibre and satellite network, Globecast is managing Orby TV’s channel aggregation, providing co-location services, handling technical operations and the uplinking of the channels to the Ku-band capacity on Eutelsat’s EUTELSAT 117 West A satellite at 117° West. Along with DTH delivery services, Orby TV will have access to disaster recovery services from a geographically diverse third-party uplink site.

“Globecast is providing to Orby TV complete and comprehensive broadcast operations,” commented Orby TV CEO Michael Thornton. “Globecast has vast experience in media management, with extensive programmer relationships and excellent fibre and satellite connectivity. Its expertise and strong operational performance was vital to the successful early days for Orby TV, as our satellite service gains a foothold across the US with consumers looking for a combination of quality lean-back television, low prices, and flexibility in managing their pay-TV services from month-to-month.”
