beIN adds TRT World to its network

beIN, the Middle East pay-TV network, has recently added TRT World, the English international news channel from Turkey. It is an HD channel which will be available in 190 countries across ten satellites. The news platform is one from the Turkish radio and Television Corporation.

The channel will as well be accessible free-to-air on other pay and digital platforms. This new development follows the pact signed between TRT and Globecast, the global distributor, prior to the recent broadcast of the channel in the Middle East North African (MENA) regions on Arabsat’s satellite.

Roch Pellerin, marcom and distribution director at TRT World, commented about the addition: “TRT World is very pleased to be available to all beIN subscribers”.

“TRT World international news content produced from our broadcast centres in Istanbul, London and Washington DC will have a unique perspective on news and will be the channel where news inspires change”, he added.
