A deal inked with GlobeCast will see Cartoon Network HD become the first High Definition (HD) children’s channel to become available in Southeast Asia. The channel will be broadcast through GlobeCast’s MEASAT-3 satellite.
“GlobeCast is proud to be the service provider for Cartoon Network HD, the first-of-its-kind HD programming for kids in Southeast Asia," commented Yew Weng Soo, Senior Vice President of Sales for GlobeCast Asia.
