The transition is being delivered in partnership with Globecast – beIN Sports’ solutions provider for media and content management. After 31 October 2022, all 3 pan-regional channels of beIN Sports content covering the Asia-Pacific region will be based on the new satellite, Measat’s most advanced to date.

“Live sports broadcast and interactive content is a key area of demand and growth, and we are proud to offer unrivalled expansion capacity and in-orbit redundancy following the launch of Measat-3d,” said Ganendra Selvaraj, chief commercial officer, Measat. “For Measat, the video segment continues to be a core focus and we are committed to providing reliable services for this segment.”

Shakunt Malhotra, managing director of Globecast in Asia, said: “Satellite remains a key means for linear TV distribution to a wider area for established markets, and we are pleased to strengthen our collaboration with Measat for further expansion in the coming years, providing compelling content for Asia-Pacific audiences.”

Globecast hosts beIN Sports’ OTT platform for Asia-Pacific and provides the ability to create and distribute pop-up channels when required. beIN Sports offers a wide line-up of live sporting coverage in English, Thai and Cantonese, through 15 channel feeds available on pay-TV platforms in the region and its live streaming app.
