The Global Broadcasting Company and Eutelsat VisAvision GmbH have signed a contract for the launch of a seven channel English-language bouquet on the KabelKiosk platform in early 2009. Programming will be drawn from independent producers in the US.

The seven new thematic channels are America Unleashed, Total Hip Hop Television, News and Finance, Indie Pix and Classics, Faith Lifestyle, Indie Sports Games and Comedy and Travel Home and Garden.

The bouquet will broadcast via the Eutelsat Eurobird 9 satellite at 9 degrees East.
