GlobeCast has signed a long term agreement with Dolphin TV to deliver its new Wrestling Channel direct-to-home via Sky Digital from March 2004.

As the first channel in the world entirely dedicated to wrestling, the Wrestling Channel will offer its audience a vast selection of pro-wrestling action including weekly shows from Japan, South America, the UK and the US independent series, as well as classic and memorable wrestling from the 70's, 80's & 90's. The channel's daytime programming is expected to attract a wide range of viewers, while the evening programming will focus on the 16-24 year old demographic. Dolphin TV's Dublin based production partner, Maxtron Media Group, will be editing all the wrestling content specifically for the UK audience.

The Wrestling Channel is London-based Dolphin TV's first media ownership venture and GlobeCast's role will be to provide an end-to-end, managed satellite distribution service, which includes encryption, uplink and space capacity. GlobeCast will receive The Wrestling Channel via terrestrial fibre and deliver the feed to GlobeCast's UK-based Brookmans Park teleport for uplink to Eurobird 28.5°E. The Wrestling Channel will then be broadcast DTH to over 7 million Sky Digital viewers across the UK.
