Globecomm Goes for Smithsonian Channel


by Fahim Farook

Globecomm Network Services Corporation, which provides global communications, media and entertainment services via satellite, has been awarded a multi-year contract by Showtime Networks Inc. to broadcast the Smithsonian Channel, a new high-definition channel, as part of the Showtime family of channels.

Globecomm has also upgraded Showtime 2, an existing standard-definition channel, to high-definition as part of their continuous process of evolving and upgrading their existing content platform.

As part of the agreement with Showtime, Globecomm will provide origination, monitoring, and uplink services for the former. Additionally, Globecomm has designed and constructed a  state-of-the-art network operations centre and dedicated uplink facility at its headquarters in Hauppauged, NY, to broadcast Showtime content to authorized sites all over the United States.

According to Keith Hall, Vice President and General Manager for GNSC, "Globecomm’s customers continue to rely on us as they upgrade and expand their broadcast capabilities. Our Hauppauge facility is evolving into a major point-of-presence for next generation broadcasting."
