February 1, 2019
TRT has announced the launch of the new HD variant of its Arabic language channel, TRT Arabi in HD. This has been made possible via a multi‐year agreement with Globecast, the global solutions provider for media, and TRT strategic partner Turksat, Turkey’s first and unique satellite operator.
TRT Arabi can to be viewed in HD across Europe and the MENA region via three major satellites: Hotbird, Badr 4 and Eutelsat 7 West A. TRT Arabi HD is part of the Turkish Broadcasting Corporation (TRT) and is an Arabic language news and documentary channel broadcasting to Arabic speakers.
Murat Akgüç, Deputy Director General Of TRT, said, “We have a very strong relationship with both Globecast and Turksat, including the very successful launch of TRT World globally in 2017. Expanding our relationship with them for the launch of the HD variant of TV Arabi was an obvious choice as we trust their technical expertise, customer service and their relationships with satellite operators. It has, as always, been a pleasure to work with them and we’re excited to bring HD quality to our audience.”
