Globecast, the global solutions provider for media, has been chosen by Russian broadcaster Bestseller Channel, distributed by Signal Media International, to extend its reach to the European market via HotBird,. Globecast has also been selected by Soyuz TV, which celebrates the Russian Orthodox Church, to provide distribution services via HotBird.
Working with Globecast brings Bestseller Channel’s original dramas, long-running bestselling series and award-winning made-for-TV movies to the Russian diaspora across the region.
Soyuz TV, a channel that celebrates and explores the values of the Russian Orthodox Church, is also now being distributed by Globecast Moskva. It’s being uplinked from Globecast’s Paris headquarters after the signal has been received by fibre from Moscow.
Biliana Pumpalovic, General Director at Globecast Moskva in Russia, said, “We are delighted to have signed new customers Bestseller Channel and Soyuz TV and that they recognise our unrivalled ability to provide a high-quality service that helps them reach new viewers, expanding their customer base.”
