mlive Launches on Badr3

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Arabsat, the leading satellite operator in the Middle East and North Africa region, has added the digital broadcaster, Mlive and its Bouquet of channels to its list of users on the BADR-3 satellite at 26East.

Uplinked from Arabsat's strategic partner Jordan Media City, the digital distribution platform in Ku-band will allow Mlive to directly access the extensive Middle Eastern and North African audiences via Arabsat’s constellation of BADR satellites @ 26°East.

Furthermore, thanks to its dual-broadcasting on Arabsat's "SEE- DIGITAL" C-band platform on its BADR-C satellite, Mlive will also dramatically extend its reach towards the numerous sub-Saharan viewers tuned to 26°E already watching a C-band bouquet of 37 digital plus 18 analog channels.

Khalid Balkhyour, Arabsat President & CEO says of Mlive, that it is an innovative and attractive new style of channels now able to reach an audience of 130 Million individuals in the MENA region alone, and much more beyond.

Frederic Giaccardo, CEO of Mlive says his Bouquet is a multilingual host of Music, Fashion and Dance, along with Interactive services and applications such as voting, chat, song dedications and quizzes.

Mlive is served up on transponder frequencies 11,747MHz KU band/3760 C Band MHz, Vertical/ Horizontal polarization, at FEC 3/4 and 27,500 MS/s.
