November 18, 2009

Canal 3 Benin has joined the GlobeCast platform on Astra 4A (Sirius 4) at 5 degrees East, GlobeCast announced Nov. 16.
GlobeCast receives Canal 3ís signal via satellite in C-band at its Paris technical operations center.

The feed is then uplinked to GlobeCastís sub-Saharan Africa distribution platform on the Astra 4A satellite. Once on the satellite, the channel can be received in Ku-band direct to millions of homes in over 30 countries, with antennas as small as 90cm.

This privately-owned channel joins other key regional and international broadcasters on GlobeCastís platform, such as Vox Africa, Canal 2 International, LMTV and Waladjiri.
