GlobeCast has signed a contract with broadcaster Trace to broadcast its new high-definition channel, Trace Sports HD, on the NSS-806 satellite. Thanks to this new coverage, Trace Sports HD will enter the region with strong growth in the pay-TV sector and have access to a potential audience of 18 million DTH and cable homes in North, Central, and South America.
The service provided by GlobeCast for Trace includes reception of its European signal in Paris, as well as turnaround uplink and space capacity on the NSS-806 satellite. This satellite offers ideal coverage to every country in the Americas.
Trace is a multimedia group and an international brand that specialises in the production and distribution of channels dedicated to urban music and sports celebrities. Trace and GlobeCast have a longstanding working relationship going back several years.
Trace Sports HD will further diversify the neighbourhood of channels present on NSS-806, as well as the HD offerings of pay-TV bouquets on cable, DTH satellite, IPTV, and mobile services. Several operators in Latin America have already decided to include Trace Sports HD in their lineups.
