Fox International Channels renews French playout deal

Fox International Channels (FIC) has renewed a broadcast services contract with TDF Group-owned Arkena for the playout of Voyage HD and Nat Geo Wild HD in the French market. 

Arkena has been providing playout services to FIC France since June 2000. In addition to playout, the contract consolidates the operation and maintenance of the channels’ post-production platform as well as content management services.

“Our long-term relationship with Arkena has been a key parameter to this renewal. We have been working closely together for more than a decade, and they know our needs as much as we know their ability to deliver the quality of service we expect,” said Stephanie Holm, director of operations at FIC.

“Our understanding of Fox International Channels France’s expectations in terms of agility, proximity and quality of service illustrates Arkena’s objective to become our customers’ favourite media services partner. Our teams have a strong service-oriented attitude which, combined with our technical expertise, has convinced Fox to remain a trustful Arkena’s partner,” said Ricardo Moreira, senior sales account manager at Arkena.
