September 30, 2015
AsiaSat, Asia’s leading satellite operator, has announced that TV5Monde, the French-language network, has entered into a long-term service agreement to broadcast both ‘TV5Monde Asie HD’ and ‘TV5Monde Style HD’ across the Asia-Pacific via AsiaSat 5.
This new agreement also marks the service extension of TV5Monde’s new lifestyle channel TV5Monde Style HD’, which was successfully launched on AsiaSat 5 earlier this year. In addition to these HD services, TV5Monde also broadcasts its ‘TV5Monde Asie’ SD channel via AsiaSat 7 in the Asia-Pacific.
“Over the past two decades, AsiaSat has proven to be our most preferred satellite partner as it offers Asia’s most popular broadcast platforms for ubiquitous audience access across the region,” said Yves Bigot, Chief Executive Officer of TV5Monde. “We are delighted to expand our strong partnership with AsiaSat to broadcast more compelling and high-quality HD French programming in Asia.”
