Media services provider GlobeCast is to provide Abu Dhabi-based satellite TV platform operator YahLive with a monitoring and reporting service for the latter’s satellite signals across the MENA region.
Local monitoring and reporting initiatives will be done by GlobeCast at Jordan Media City (JMC), in Amman, Jordan.
YahLive has created an HD bouquet of more than 40 channels including GEM Sports TV, Russia Al Youm, Abu Dhabi TV, MBC, Cartoon Network Arabic, and Saudi TV. By year-end 2012, YahLive’s bouquet comprised 50 channels.
The agreement was signed by Georges Baroud, CEO of GlobeCast Middle East, and Mohamed Youssif, CEO of YahLive.
“As the region’s HD television satellite platform, YahLive has become synonymous with ‘pure HD’ and the company that is spearheading MENA’s SD-to-HD conversion in response to the accelerated demand for premium-quality HD television – partnering with global leaders like GlobeCast ensures that we deliver on our number one commitment to television viewers and broadcast partners – to provide the best in service reliability, quality, and customer service,” said Youssif.
