  • Global earth stations

    Reaching new global audiences beyond the boundaries of fibre networks is possible through satellite broadcasting. With BT’s Madley Earth Station, which provides access to satellites covering one third of the globe, we can help you transmit and receive everything from major news events to corporate networks, disaster relief or internet gateway services. And our global partnerships mean we can offer services from multiple teleport locations to reach any major broadcast satellite around the world.

  • Satellite services

    Using our experience and relationships within the broadcast community, we can also offer managed space segment uplinks to provide a simple solution to getting your channels onto many DTH platforms.

    Through BT’s teleports, combined with partner teleports around the world, we can also downlink channels from a range of satellites and use our Global Media Network to distribute these to places where satellites can’t reach.

    In the media industry, connectivity is the lifeblood of content production, facilitating sharing, collaborating and connecting.  For those in remote locations where fixed connectivity is unavailable or prohibitively expensive, we can offer satellite-based data connectivity.

  • Global headends

    We provide connectivity to our media network through our global headends. They offer connectivity for real-time media content, such as rights-holding sports broadcasters, news channels and production companies.

    Once we’ve delivered channels for you, you’ll have a permanent connection, so we’ll be able to deliver content connections for you even quicker in the future. We’re also constantly expanding our service, by growing the number of headends we have around the world. And, as an on-net customer, you’ll automatically benefit from this investment.
