RRsat Partners with DOGTV - a Dedicated Channel Just For Dogs
First network specifically for dogs selects RRsat as media services partner to enable channel to focus on core content creation

Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey – July 14, 2014 – RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST), a leading provider of digital content management and global content distribution services to the broadcasting industry, announced today the signing of a three-year contract with DOGTV, the first and only television network scientifically developed just for dogs. The partnership allows DOGTV to focus on its content creation, channel programming and marketing while RRsat provides the full range of extended media services, including content preparation, management, playout services and global distribution.

DOGTV is distributed through DirectTV via fiber in the U.S. and in Asia via Measat 3A satellite. This channel is a first for Asian viewers. While DOGTV will retain content creation in-house, RRsat will enable a vast array of media services by providing:
  • Content preparation and management
  • Channel distribution
  • Full playout services
“RRsat provides the best technical support and know-how to our team and creates a seamless solution for managing, playing out and distributing our content,” said Aviv Messa, DOGTV Chief Operating Officer. “This partnership will enable our team to expand distribution capabilities we otherwise could not accomplish.”

RRsat offers DOGTV HD and SD playout capability to multiple destinations. The ability to obtain all the needed technical support from one vendor, with the reliability RRsat’s team offers, reinforced DOGTV’s decision to partner with the provider.

“We are pleased to partner with a niche channel such as DOGTV and broaden our service offerings, while enabling DOGTV to focus on its core business functions,” stated Lior Rival, Chief Commercial Officer of RRsat. “RRsat’s global network capabilities offer DOGTV solutions beyond its current infrastructure and expand its distribution across the globe.” - Read More>>
