Fashion One TV signs GlobeCast for playout in Asia

MUMBAI: GlobeCast has signed a multi-year agreement with Fashion One TV, a new fashion entertainment channel owned by Bigfoot Entertainment.

The agreement involves the playout of the channel in Asia and satellite delivery in Asia and the US. 
GlobeCast is providing playout and origination of Fashion One TV from its Parkview Square digital hub in Singapore. The channel’s signal is then delivered from Singapore via GlobeCast’s global fiber network to its Hong Kong teleport in Chaiwan for uplink to the Asiasat3S satellite, which offers coverage of East Asia and South Asia.

FashionOne brings the latest news from the US entertainment industry as well as Fashion Weeks from around the world. The channel produces its own original content such as reality shows and movies in its facilities both in the US and in Asia.

GlobeCast also brings Fashion One TV to audiences in North America. GlobeCast’s Singapore playout facility is well connected via multiple ring connections to GlobeCast’s teleports worldwide. 
Taking advantage of this fiber network, Fashion One TV’s signal is delivered from Singapore direct to GlobeCast’s Culver City teleport in Los Angeles for uplink on the Galaxy19 satellite for distribution on GlobeCast’s World TV DTH platform. The channel’s programming is ‘time shifted’ for the US audience.

Finally, Fashion One TV and GlobeCast have entered into an exclusive channel distribution partnership for territories in Asia. As its sole distributor, GlobeCast’s Content Aggregation and Acquisition (CAD) team will represent Fashion One TV’s content on various pay-TV platforms including DTH, IPTV, cable, SMATV, MMDS, hotels, online and mobile.
