RRsat Global Communications Network, a provider of digital content management and global content distribution services to the broadcasting industry, has announced its expansion of broadcast solutions for ETTV America, the subsidiary of leading Taiwanese cable TV network, Eastern Broadcasting Company (also known as ETTV). The three-year contract is a continuation of the initial solution that began in 2012.
RRsat’s initial contract delivers six ETTV channels plus 3 affiliate channels from RRsat’s Los Angeles Point-of-Presence (POP) to Dish Network’s media hubs in the US via dedicated fibre connectivity. The second phase of the contract began in February 2014 and expands broadcast distribution by adding three additional ETTV channels; delivered from the RRsat Hawley broadcast and teleport facility. Distribution of these channels will be through uplink to the Galaxy 23 satellite to major cable headends including Comcast, AT&T, Cablevision and others.
“We were extremely pleased and impressed with RRsat’s ability to provide top notch infrastructure and excellent performance; factors driving our decision to expand their fiber and satellite distribution,” said David Chang, ETTV America Distribution Manager. “We look forward to expanding our relationship with RRsat and enjoying the benefits of having the full range of media services under one roof.”
