Spacecom extends deal with Nepalese DTH player

AMOS-uplink1Israel-based satellite operator Spacecom has signed a new deal with existing customer Dish Media Network of Nepal that will see the Tibetan country’s only DTH operator take additional capacity on the Amos-4 satellite.

Dish Media Network’s Dishhome service will take additional capacity at the 65° East orbital slot to expand its line-up of standard and high-definition channels.

Amos-4 has eight Ku-band transponders of 108 MHz and four high-power Ka-band transponders of 216MHz, each with steerable beams, enabling it to serve the Asian, African and Middle Eastern markets for DTH, video distribution, VSAT and broadband internet applications.

Dish Media Network CEO Sudeep Acharya said: “This agreement will keep our growth trajectory moving forward and upwards. Our deep association with Spacecom’s AMOS-4 enables us to build out and expand our brand, further our strategic goals and strengthen our operations throughout Nepal.”

David Pollack, president and CEO of Spacecom, said: “This agreement with Dish Media Network adds strength to our position in Asia. Amos-4’s power and focus on Asia makes it a prime choice for providing a range of satellite services in the region, as well as in East Africa.”
