Measat signs capacity deal with Rock Entertainment Holdings

Measat plans to add the Measat-3d satellite in 2022, which will replace Measat-3a and enhance the 91.5 degrees East video neighbourhood.

Measat Satellite Systems has signed a new capacity deal with Rock Entertainment Holdings for the distribution of Global Trekker HD via Measat-3a satellite.

The channel joins Measat’s HD video neighbourhood at 91.5 degrees East for viewers across the Asia Pacific region. The 91.5 degrees East video slot is home to the Measat-3a and Measat-3b satellites. From 91.5 degrees East, Measat supports broadcasters and DTH operators to distribute UHD, HD and SD channels to audiences across Asia, Australia, East Africa, and Eastern Europe. The Measat fleet will be further strengthened with the addition of Measat-3d in 2022.

Global Trekker is a premium channel that features a broad range of content.

Ganendra Selvaraj, Associate Vice President, Sales, Measat, said: “Since 2017, Measat has proudly served Rock Entertainment Holdings with its distribution of Rock Entertainment, Rock Extreme, ZooMoo and Smithsonian HD channels. The addition of Global Trekker HD on Measat’s platform will further enhance the variety of our HD channel bouquet – making us the preferred satellite operator for HD channel distribution in the region.”
