ASTRA 1G Moved to 23.5 Degrees East - 22-February-2009, 22:11

ASTRA 1G Moved to 23.5 Degrees East

SES ASTRA, an SES company (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG), announced today that it has moved its ASTRA 1G satellite from 19.2 degrees East to 23.5 degrees East, where it joined ASTRA 3A and ASTRA 1E to serve Central Europe, the Benelux countries and German cable networks, as well as offering the high-speed broadband service ASTRA2Connect.

The move follows the successful deployment of SES ASTRAs new satellite ASTRA 1M which replaces ASTRA 1G at 19.2 degrees East. ASTRA 1G adds 19 transponders to 23.5 degrees East increasing the number of available transponders on this orbital position to 56. Over the past years, SES ASTRA has successfully developed 23.5 degrees East into a new prime orbital position for Direct-to-Home (DTH) and broadband services in particular for Benelux, Czech Republic and Slovakia, which have generated strong demand on this orbital position.

By the end of the year, the orbital position at 23.5 degrees East will be further strengthened by the launch of ASTRA 3B. The satellite which is currently being built by EADS ASTRIUM in Toulouse is a state-of-the-art spacecraft with 52 transponders designed for the distribution of both Direct-to-Home (DTH) broadcast services and two-way broadband services across Europe. ASTRA 3B will provide more flexibility to 23.5 degrees East. Over time, the satellite will replace all existing capacity on 23.5 degrees East.
