Virgin Media picks Globecast to provide international channels

WorldboxMedia services provider Globecast has partnered with Virgin Media to supply seven channels for the platform’s expanded international TV content.

The new channels are being added to Virgin Media’s Worldbox service, a new app that offers live streams of international channels via Virgin Media’s TiVo set-top boxes.

The channels will be launched in two stages, with four launching now and the rest to be added to the app in early 2015. Globecast is supplying the channels: 1+1 International from the Ukraine; BFM from France; Canal 24 Horas from Spain; CTC from Russia; Eurochannel from France; Nessma from Tunisia; and SIC International from Portugal.

Virgin Media announced earlier this week that it is adding a total of 10 new international channels to its platform.
