Benie TV and Ouest TV, two recently launched African channels, have chosen Globecast to distribute their programming via satellite to new audiences in West Africa. Via the Globecast service, Benie TV and Ouest TV are now part of the Canalsat bouquet available on the SES-4 platform.

“Viewers in French-speaking African countries are hungry for news programming and specialized content, so joining SES-4 platform is a tremendous opportunity for Benie TV and Ouest TV,” said Lionel Antoine, Sales Manager Africa for Globecast. “The diversity of Canalsat offer and our leadership position in the African market, enable us to provide the service levels these channels need to achieve a maximum visibility with their target audiences.”
