GlobeCast has launched its second MCPC platform on the AsiaSat 3S satellite with European broadcaster Deutsche Welle as the new transponder’s first client.
The new C-band platform on AsiaSat 3S, located at 105.5° E with a footprint covering the Middle East to East Asia, Australia and New Zealand, is a premium broadcast platform for the Asia-Pacific region reaching a potential audience of over 95 million households.
DW-TV ASIA+, Deutsche Welle’s new second free-to-air Asian channel, broadcasts a variety of lifestyle, cultural, arts and in-depth business and politics programs around-the-clock with 18 hours of programming in English. The new channel complements DW-TV’s feed on GlobeCast’s existing AsiaSat 3S MCPC platform.
From GlobeCast’s point of presence in Frankfurt, DW-TV ASIA+ is delivered via GlobeCast’s international RIBU fiber network to the company’s Hong Kong teleport for uplink to AsiaSat 3 and distribution to the entire Asian-Pacific region.
