Showtime Arabia has extended its three-year relationship with GlobeCast to include playout as well as transport.
GlobeCastís recently upgraded London Technical Operations Centre will handle content management and delivery services for 13 of the pay-TV platformís international channels.
The feeds for 13 of Showtime Arabiaís international channels, including Discovery World, Cartoon Network and VH1, are received via satellite and fibre at the Technical Operations Centre for aggregation and multiplexing followed by fibre delivery to GlobeCastís Brookmans Park facility. From here the channels are uplinked to Nilesat 102 at 7 degrees West.
