Globecast and Arabsat have extended their relationship for the distribution of the Global Arabic Bouquet (GAB) for a further five years.

This grouping of premium Arabic channels from the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU) has been made available across the world since the establishment of this partnership in 2004.

Since the very beginning, the partners have expanded the Global Arabic Bouquet's potential viewership and footprint, offering a single global coverage to ASBU members.

Arabic language channels are now able to join the bouquet and reach viewers on all five continents free-to-air as Globecast is providing all the technical services required for end-to-end delivery.
