BT & PacTV strike network sharing deal

BT Media and Broadcast, the global media services division of BT Plc, and PacTV, the transmission and live production provider to the global broadcast industry, today announced that each would be offering the world-wide reach and services of the other to their customers in a new network collaboration arrangement.

The agreement will see both organisations drawing on the network assets and resources of the other to provide truly end to end content distribution solutions for global TV and film companies.  For BT, this will mean the ability to extend the existing reach of its Global Media Network (GMN) further into the America’s. Meanwhile, PacTV will be able to extend its capability into Europe and Asia using BT’s GMN footprint.

“With 65 years’ experience of moving live, and more recently, file-based, content around the world, BT Media and Broadcast has a fantastic global footprint for any media organisation that wants to trade globally,” comments Mark Wilson-Dunn, Global Vice President of BT Media and Broadcast. “PacTV brings a great new dimension to that with their footprint and coverage.”
