WorldSpace offers satellite capacity to broadcasters, print media companies

Satellite radio network WorldSpace is in talks with a host of Indian broadcasters and print media companies for leasing of satellite capacity. Talks in this regard are currently on with several broadcasters.

WorldSpace has been leasing capacity to broadcasters and even to pharmaceutical companies worldwide. While broadcasters have been using the satellite capacity for channels of all kinds, pharmaceutical companies use it for spreading health awareness messages.

WorldSpace Foundation, a unit of the company, also has a learning channel in Africa, which is part of a community learning project. In India, WorldSpace is in talks with Indira Gandhi Open University (Ignou) for a radio project. With FM broadcasting having been opened to private players, radio is being seen as big business potential.

The WorldSpace satellite network consists of three geostationary satellites—AfriStar, AsiaStar and AmeriStar. Each satellite has three beams for delivering audio service, Web content and data directly to portable receivers.
