Astra boosts presence in Ukraine

Satellite operator SES Astra has revealed it now broadcasts to over 7.6 million of the 17.8 million households in Ukraine.

Last year the operator delivered digital satellite services to an additional 1.8 million households, meaning it now broadcasts to 2.2 million of the country’s 2.3 million digital satellite homes.
Astra operates in Ukraine through its affiliate SES Sirius, broadcasting from Sirius 4 located at the 5° East orbital position. Astra is planning to move its Astra 2C satellite to the new orbital position at 31.5° East next month in order to strengthen its presence in the region.
