LN24 entrusts BCE for the distribution of its news channel

LN24, the first 24×7 news channel in Belgium, has selected BCE for the distribution and monitoring of its channel.

LN24 covers political and economic news, both in its national and international aspects, decodes social movements and embraces sporting and cultural events. LN24 verifies the information it publishes and offers a positive approach of current events. With a newsroom and studios based in Brussels (Belgium) LN24 distribute its channel, via an extended partner network, on a 24×7 basis via linear and non-linear platforms.

During the latest IBC trade show in Amsterdam (Netherlands), BCE, a European leader in media services, system integration and software development in the areas of television, radio, production and postproduction, telecommunication, and IT, signed a major contract with LN24.

Services encompass the distribution of the news channel to its partner network, including Orange, Proximus, RTBF (Auvio), Telenet, and VOO, as well as the 24×7 monitoring via BCE’s Network Operations Centre and the compliance recording. While BCE’s connectivity, technology and expertise were essential for the realization of this project, it is BCE’s environmental responsibility which triggered its fulfillment.

As a matter of fact, BCE’s headquarters, and therefore its distribution and monitoring infrastructure, are supplied since 2020 by a 100% renewable energy based on hydroelectric production. In and beyond compliance with existing environmental laws and in recognition of the importance of environmental issues, BCE aims at continually reviewing and improving its environmental impact and commits to become carbon neutral by 2030.

In line with this commitment, BCE’s services for LN24 are operated remotely from its headquarters in Luxembourg.

“Aware that electricity consumption is responsible for most of BCE’s carbon emissions, it was paramount for us to take this major step towards a more responsible use of technology. We are glad to welcome LN24, who’s environmental views match our commitments and are looking forward to strengthens our relationships with the news channel in a near future.” Explains Christophe Goossens, CEO at BCE.

“LN24 intends to work with the most efficient and up-to-date technologies in order to build a best practice for media in Belgium. We are proud to work with BCE’s expertise and know-how.” Emmanuel Tourpe, General Manager of LN24.
