​TiVi5MONDE Launches On ARABSAT With Globecast

TiVi5MONDE, owned by French network TV5MONDE, is a 24/7 French language children’s network, featuring cartoons, educational shows, and teen series.

The channel is launching on the Badr satellite at 26°E, which already hosts a strong DTH neighbourhood. Arabsat already provides satellite distribution services over MENA for TV5MONDE Maghreb Orient HD and TV5MONDE Style HD, which are on the same transponder as the new service. For TiVi5MONDE, Globecast is supplying the channel, with full redundancy and channel monitoring, to Arabsat’s European teleport from where the channel is uplinked.

Dr. Badr bin Nasser AlSuwaidan, Arabsat Acting CEO, said, “Working with Globecast, we’re very pleased to have been selected as the exclusive satellite distributor of the new kid's channel for our viewers in the Arab world. Arabsat has always been proudly classified by our viewers as the preferred satellite video neighbourhood of the Arab family.”

Philippe Bernard, Globecast CEO and Chairman, said, “Satellite channel distribution is very powerful across the MENA region and our partnership with Arabsat has proved invaluable for many customers. The technical and business confidence shown is reflected in the cost-effective, reliable and premium quality service we are providing.”
