German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 has chosen US service provider Globecast for the distribution of its international TV channel ProSiebenSat.1 Welt to platform operators.
The agreement covers the exclusive licensing for MVPD, cable operator, OTT platform and IPTV distribution in the US and non-exclusively in Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand. Technical delivery of the signal is being managed from Globecast’s media centre in Culver City, CA.
ProSiebenSat.1 Welt offers current German-language television programming. Content is sourced by ProSiebenSat.1’s six domestic free-TV channels.
“We’re ideally positioned to help ProSiebenSat.1 Welt to expand its audience base through our extensive partnerships with distributors. International channels like ProSiebenSat.1 Welt are increasingly important to provide for our progressively diverse markets,” said Berto Guzman, VP, head of content acquisition, aggregation and distribution for Globecast Americas.
