BBC Prime uses GlobeCast for Eurobird capacity

Broadcast services provider GlobeCast has announced that BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the UK public broadcaster, is using capacity leased by GlobeCast on Eutelsat’s Eurobird 9A satellite for international channel BBC Prime.

BBC Worldwide is using capacity from a transponder located at 9° East for DTH coverage of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. GlobeCast receives the BBC Prime feed via fibre at its London technical operations centre. From there the signal is sent via fibre to its Brookmans Park facility where it is uplinked to the Eurobird 9A satellite.
