Arabsat has announced that Canal Algerie is now available on Arabsat-5C, the Arabic satellite platform for Direct-To-Home services, over Africa. Globecast is expanding its relationship with Arabsat, providing the technical broadcast solutions needed to deliver Canal Algerie across Africa. Arabsat-5C at 20° east is designed to serve the African market, matching the specific technical requirements with the growing demand across the continent. Arabsat -5C is equipped with a powerful C-band beam which covers 100 per cent of African satellite TV households, and needs only the minimum required dish size to receive its channels.

Giorgio Giacomini, MD - Middle East, Globecast, said, “We have a longstanding and successful relationship with Arabsat. We are positioned to launch new channels and expand the reach of existing channels, providing cost-effective end-to-end services to do so.”

“The launch of Canal Algerie on Arabsat-5C comes as part of our core mission to connect Arabic societies across the world. Furthermore, the broadcasting of Canal Algerie via Arabsat-5C, highlights the continued successful Arabsat and Globecast partnership. This is expanding across additional territories beyond MENA, helping grow the reach of the existing DTH portfolio of channels active on Arabsat-5C, and supporting the addition of more leading channels on Arabsat-5C in the very near future,” said Khalid Balkheyour, president and CEO, Arabsat.
