Kuala Lumpur — Globecast announced that it has been selected by Bright Lights Media to provide a comprehensive suite of services for the launch of ‘Simply Money’, a new High Definition pay-TV channel in Southeast Asia. Producing locally relevant high-quality personal finance-lifestyle content, Simply Money will also acquire premium world class programming from around the world, carefully selected for viewers in Southeast Asia.

Globecast is supplying Simply Money with an end-to-end media management solution from its media centre in Mediapolis, Singapore. The solution includes fully managed playout, content preparation and quality control. Globecast is also providing regulatory compliance review and editing to ensure that content is compliant with regulatory requirements for distribution across Southeast Asia.

The HD channel is being carried on the MEASAT-3 satellite, the premier satellite for HD channel distribution across the wider Asia Pacific region. MEASAT-3 is co-located with MEASAT-3a and MEASAT-3b at 91.5°E, creating Asia’s most vibrant and robust video hotslot.

Simply Money launches first in the Philippines with plans to roll out more widely across Southeast Asia in the coming months.
