Australian media company Inverleigh has chosen Arqiva to distribute its premium sports content internationally, representing a first win for Arqiva’s new Australasian office.
As part of a three year, six-figure contract, Arqiva will use its international leases on AsiaSat, Eutelsat and Intelsat, along with its teleports to distribute Inverleigh’s programmes throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.
The programmes will initially be delivered from Inverleigh’s Melbourne base to Arqiva’s Sydney Teleport Services (Sydney PoP) via FTP.
Peter Wraith, CEO at Inverleigh commented: “More than 260 international broadcasters already love our high-value content solutions and we have no intention of stopping there. The focus for Inverleigh is to continue our international growth, and by working with an experienced partner like Arqiva we believe we can deliver a reliable, high quality programming solution to a growing broadcaster base to meet our clients demands.
David Crawford, managing director of satellite AMD media at Arqiva added: “This is a great milestone for our Australasian office and we are very excited to be working with one of the most progressive, and ambitious global media companies.”
