GlobeCast announced the launch of CTC-International on Eutelsat’s Hot Bird 8 satellite, the largest broadcast neighborhood in the world.

This move increases the channel’s broadcast footprint, giving it the potential to reach more than 120 million homes in Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East.

CTC-International is a 24/7 Russian-language family entertainment channel, whose programming grid consists of a combination of parent CTC Media's channels: CTC (80%), Domashny, and Peretz (formerly DTV). The channel's content is distinguished by its high quality, relevance, and focus on family values.

GlobeCast is providing CTC-International all the technical services required for end-to-end delivery, including Free to Air transmission service on its MCPC distribution platform, signal processing, multiplexing, uplink, and space capacity on Eutelsat’s Hot Bird 8. The CTC-International channel targets Russian-speaking audiences in Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and the Middle East.
