Commercial SES-1 Satellite Enters Operational Use

SES World Skies
: 23 June, 2010  (Application Story)
Launched in April this year, the SES-1 Satellite from SES World Skies is now delivering TV programming to US cable networks
SES World Skies has announced that its SES-1 satellite has entered commercial service at the orbital location of 101 degrees West.

Built by Orbital Sciences, SES-1 was successfully launched onboard an ILS-Proton Breeze M Rocket on April 24, 2010. The spacecraft replaces AMC-2 and AMC-4 at the key orbital location of 101 degrees West over North America, and is used to feed TV programming into virtually every cable network in the US.

Rob Bednarek, President and CEO of SES World Skies, stated: “The successful bringing into use of SES-1 is the stepping stone of our fleet renewal programme over North America. The smooth transition of our customers’ traffic to the brand-new SES-1 satellite frees up the AMC-2 and AMC-4 spacecraft for new missions at new orbital slots.”
