GlobeCast adds French-African channels to MyGlobeTV
June 4, 2013
GlobeCast has announced the addition of 14 French-African channels to MyGlobeTV, the company’s broadband-delivered consumer platform for international broadcasters.
“There is a growing community of French-African immigrants in the US, and now MyGlobeTV is bringing a taste of home to these viewers, giving them easy access to content that they can’t get from any other US provider,” said Emma Brackett, vice president of consumer products and services at GlobeCast. “Since the launch of MyGlobeTV last year, we’ve been committed to rapidly expanding our channel lineup to include a wide variety of African, Asian, Australian, and European content.”
Thema supplies the feeds for Le Bouquet Africain via IP to GlobeCast’s facility in Valifornia where the channels are encoded and integrated into the MyGlobeTV platform. The basic package for MyGlobeTV’s new Le Bouquet Africain includes eight channels dedicated to the French-speaking African community; the premium package includes 14 channels.
