International TV network Fashion One has launched demo broadcast services to Asia and Europe on Asia Broadcast Satellite via the ABS-1 satellite C-band and Ku-band video platforms.
Local feed of Fashion One is received in Europe and uplinked from Munich and Hong Kong respectively to C- and Ku-band transponders of ABS-1. With its orbital location at 75°E above the Indian Ocean Region, the two video feeds will be delivered to key Asian and European TV markets.
Fashion One broadcasts fashion, entertainment and lifestyle news, plus celebrity profiles and coverage of red carpet events. Its original programming includes reality shows, documentaries, beauty tips and street styling.
Ashley Jordan, CEO of Fashion One, said: “Fashion One is distributed to over 120 countries worldwide, reaching over 100 million viewers. This collaboration with ABS is a strategic move to solidify our distribution in the important Asian and European markets, by meeting the rapidly growing demand of our channel in these regions. We are confident that the ABS one-stop service will help us achieve our business objective."
Mohamed Youssif, COO of ABS, added: “ABS is thrilled to partner with Fashion One, in supporting their business plan and growth in more key TV markets. The addition of Fashion One adds to our strong line-up of international broadcasters taking advantages of our wide market coverage and strategic locations of our teleports in Europe and Asia."
