Satellite is alive and kicking and the new launch of the Eutelsat Hotbird 13G proves

The second of two new telecommunications satellites designed to provide access over a thousand TV and radio services across Europe and beyond was successfully launched in the early hours.

Eutelsat Hotbird 13G launched at 5:22am GMT, 3rd November, from Cape Canaveral, Florida by Space X. It will join its twin Hotbird 13F, which was launched last month. Together they will replace the aging satellites currently orbiting at 13 degrees East.

The two satellites will reinforce and enhance the broadcast of more than a thousand television channels into homes across Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East. Moreover, the two satellites will offer advanced features in terms of uplink signal protection and resilience.

There won’t be any immediate changes to services broadcast from Hotbird satellites until well into 2023.

The all-electric satellites will take at least five months to get into their orbital slot, with testing to ensure they are working as expected.

This is of course good news for Sky (Italy & Deutschland), but also for BIS Télévisions (France), NOVA (Greece), Polsat (Poland), SSR/SRG (Switzerland), TV Vlaanderen/TeleSat (Belgium), CGTN (China) RTP (Portugal), RTVE (Spain) and the BBC World Service.
