Arabsat has just announced that Canal Algerie is available on Arabsat-5C, the Arabic satellite platform for Direct-To-Home services over Africa. The Arabsat-5C at 20º east will serve the African market. It is equipped with a C-band beam that covers 100 per cent of African satellite TV households.

Globecast will provide the technical broadcast solutions needed to deliver Canal Algerie across Africa. The Algerian French-speaking public television channel is owned by EPTV (Algerian Public Television), who also owns A3 (available on BADR-6), Terrestrial TV, Tamazight TV and Coran TV.

Giorgio Giacomini, MD of Globecast in the Middle East, said, “We have a longstanding and very successful relationship with Arabsat.  We are perfectly positioned to both launch new channels and expand the reach of existing channels, providing cost-effective end-to-end services to do so.”

“The launch of Canal Algerie on Arabsat-5C comes as part of our core mission to connect Arabic societies across the world; we provide African, Arab and Islamic communities with the largest possible choice of Free-To-Air TV channels in Africa,” added Khalid Balkheyour, Arabsat president & CEO. Furthermore, the broadcasting of Canal Algerie via Arabsat-5C, highlights the continued successful Arabsat and Globecast partnership. This is expanding across additional territories beyond MENA, helping grow the reach of the existing Direct-to-Home portfolio of channels active on Arabsat-5C, and supporting the addition of more leading channels on Arabsat-5C in the very near future.”
