The channel joins MEASAT’s High Definition (“HD”) video neighborhood at 91.5°E for viewers across Asia Pacific.
Global Trekker is a premium channel that features a broad range of content where viewers get to explore the world, bringing them closer to nature and giving them insights to business success and how technology improves everyday lives.
The 91.5°E prime video hot slot is home to the MEASAT-3a and MEASAT-3b satellites, forming the region’s strongest video neighborhood. From 91.5°E, 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.
“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”, said Ganendra Selvaraj, Associate Vice President, Sales, MEASAT.
