Australia telco and satellite provider Optus has seen its newest bird, the D3, launch successfully from Arianespaces French Guiana spaceport.

D3 will expand Optus satellite fleet capacity by over 30%, provide an in-orbit redundancy capability and marks the first use of the Broadcast Satellite Service spectrum in Australia. The BSS band will allow Optus broadcast customers, in particular Foxtel and Sky New Zealand, to increase thir delivery of the next generation of digital and HD television to the homes.

Kim Williams, CEO of Foxtel said: Foxtel is delighted Optus D3 satellite has successfully launched. Once successful testing is complete over the coming months, the new satellite will empower us to offer our customers even more choice, new services, increased flexibility and even greater value.

The next generation of Foxtel digital will offer customers 30 additional channels, including 10 additional HD channels, enhanced navigation features, and significantly more interactive and on-demand features, Mr Williams added.

Paul OSullivan, Optus CEO, said: Todays launch demonstrates Optus commitment to keeping Australia and New Zealand at the forefront of satellite technology as we continue to invest in bringing communications capability, such as high definition television, to more households.
