Los Angeles — 19 Feb 2015 — Globecast has helped existing customer Daystar to extend its reach and better monetise its content offering by launching the channel in Australia. Australian audiences can now access its range of faith-based programming via the Foxtel DTH platform as well as free-to-air.
