Israel February 8, 2011
In addition to distributing content globally via satellite, fiber, and hybrid networks and providing comprehensive playout services for the broadcast industry, RRsat’s media division is aggregating, packaging and licensing international content for global distribution. This allows multichannel platform operators, such as DISH Network, to deliver a vast array of ethnic and genre based programming to their subscribers. RRsat’s global presence enables it to bring together programming packages that can meet the needs of a large variety of viewer demographics.
The new package delivered to the DISH Network by RRsat includes three Israeli channels:
- The Israeli Network - news, sport and prime-time entrainment programs from leading Israeli commercial broadcasting channels. For the first time in its 9 years of operation, "The Israeli Network" will add English subtitles to its prime-time show, making it accessible to English speaking audiences in the United States. - IsraKids - the first 24/7 all original children programming channel from Israel featuring popular original Israeli children shows from NOGA Communications - a leading provider of Israeli children programming and the producer of a long running Israeli kids channel. - Good Life Israel - lifestyle, travel, food and health programs from a leading provider of lifestyle channels in Israel - Ananey Communications. Good Life Israel brings to its viewers the sights and cuisine of Israel.
