Globecast Extends Partnership with SES for Distribution Services to Orange Romania

January 8, 2018 - Globecast, the global solutions provider for media, has extended its partnership with SES for the premium TV distribution services it provides to Orange Romania using SES’s satellite capacity. Under the multi-year extension announced by SES, Globecast will lease several transponders on ASTRA 5B at 31.5 degrees East to serve Orange Romania, which uses the capacity to broadcast 112 channels, of which 52 are in HD, using the DVB-S2 and MPEG-4 technical standards. Globecast manages the contribution, encryption and encoding for the entire TV package, as well as signal transport to the uplink facilities for ASTRA 5B. Orange Romania’s premium TV offer was launched in June 2013 with the support of SES, leveraging the high power and wide coverage of the ASTRA 5B satellite to deliver HD channels via the smallest dish in the Romanian market. In a highly competitive TV market, with 98 percent pay-TV coverage and five operating DTH platforms, Orange TV’s satellite platform has grown exponentially since its launch.
