WRN Broadcast is working with Television Jamaica (TVJ), Jamaica’s number one television station, throughout the duration of the Olympic Games.
Hosted in WRN Broadcast’s Media Village in Vauxhall, London, TVJ is being provided studio facilities for live programme recording and the ad hoc transatlantic delivery of non-Olympic rights holder content from WRN Broadcast’s Media Village to its primary audience in Jamaica.
In addition to this uplink service, WRN Broadcast is also responsible for the downlink and on-pass of TVJ programming from Jamaica to London-based OHTV, Sky channel 199. This enables the broadcasters to conduct a content-sharing partnership over a three week period – taking in the summer games and special broadcasts to celebrate the 50th Year of Jamaican Independence later in August. Whilst in the Media Village, TVJ will have production support from OHTV, who already operate from WRN Broadcast’s Media Village.
