23 May 2019
Canal Algerie is now available on Arabsat-5C, making the channel available on the satellite’s Direct-To-Home platform over Africa.
Canal Algerie is an Algerian French-speaking public television channel, owned by EPTV (Algerian Public Television), who also owns A3 (available on BADR-6), Terrestrial TV, Tamazight TV and Coran TV. Canal Algerie broadcasts its programmes 24/7 via different platforms all over the world.
Globecast is expanding its longstanding relationship with Arabsat, providing the technical broadcast solutions needed to deliver Canal Algerie across Africa.
Arabsat-5C at 20 degrees East is designed to serve the African market, matching the specific technical requirements with the growing demand across the continent. Arabsat -5C has a huge footprint, equipped with a powerful C-band beam which covers 100 per cent of African satellite TV households and needs only the minimum required dish size to receive its channels.
This new broadcast of Canal Algérie is part of the commercial contract between Télédiffusion d’Algérie, the Algerian public TV and radio broadcasting operator and Globecast.
