RRsat, ETTV America + DISH—A DISH POP (SatBroadcasting™—Content Distribution)

[SatNews] RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST) has expanded their broadcast solutions for ETTV America, the subsidiary of leading Taiwanese cable TV network, Eastern Broadcasting Company (also known as ETTV)—the three-year contract is a continuation of the initial solution that began in 2012.  

RRsat’s initial contract delivers six ETTV channels plus three affiliate channels from RRsat’s Los Angeles Point-of-Presence (POP) to Dish Network’s media hubs in the U.S. via dedicated fiber connectivity. The second phase of the contract began in February 2014 and expands broadcast distribution by adding three additional ETTV channels; delivered from the RRsat Hawley broadcast and teleport facility. Distribution of these channels will be through uplink to the Galaxy 23 satellite to major cable headends including Comcast, AT&T, Cablevision and others.
RRsat is delivering dozens of channels to DISH, with an existing fiber pipe to DISH hubs in North America. It enables RRsat to provide an efficient delivery solution to DISH from any content provider, or a company that needs flexible content delivery based on its destination. RRsat’s extensive teleport services offer a robust global distribution platform while providing customers with significant opportunities to monetize their content.
