Globecast and Arabsat begin GAB broadcast

Broadcast services provider GlobeCast and satellite operator Arabsat have announced that the Global Arabic Bouquet (GAB), which includes premium Arabic channels from the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU), is now being broadcast from Arabsat’s 5C satellite over Africa. This satellite, Arabsat’s newest, was launched in September 2011.

GlobeCast, Arabsat and ASBU’s partner for the worldwide distribution of the GAB are providing the technical services required for end-to-end delivery. The terrestrial delivery is done from Amman by Jordan Media City. This service via Arabsat replaces the bouquet’s previous distribution.
