    December lauch for SES and Hispasat
    October 2, 2013 07.09 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    The Ariane 5 for Arianespace’s next dual-payload heavy-lift mission has begun its assembly at the Spaceport for a mid-December launch with satellites from SES and Hispasat.
    As with the 71 Ariane 5s previously launched from French Guiana, this vehicle’s build-up employed a well-established integration flow, with the core cryogenic stage being positioned over one of two operational launch tables, followed by rollout and mating of the two solid propellant boosters.
    These steps will be followed by positioning of the cryogenic upper stage and vehicle equipment bay as a single unit atop the core stage, completing the initial assembly process in the Spaceport’s Launcher Integration Building. The Ariane 5 then will be transferred to the Final Assembly Building for installation of both satellite passengers.
    The December mission is designated Flight VA216 in Arianespace’s launcher family numbering system, representing the 216th liftoff of an Ariane since this series of vehicles began operation in 1979.
    Riding in the upper position of Ariane 5′s payload “stack” will be Astra 5B, which is to extend SES’ transponder capacity and geographical reach over Eastern European and neighboring markets for direct-to-home, direct-to-cable and contribution feeds to digital terrestrial television networks.
    Built by Astrium, Astra 5B also carries a hosted L-band payload for the European Commission’s European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS). With a design lifetime of 15 years, Astra 5B will have an estimated liftoff mass of 5,800 kg. and is to be positioned at an orbital location of 31.5 degrees East.
    The lower passenger on Arianespace’s Flight VA216 is Hispasat’s Amazonas 4A, to be located at an orbital position 61 deg. West after its deployment by the Ariane 5. This Orbital Sciences Corporation-produced telecommunications platform will enhance Hispasat’s relay capacity over Latin America to provide an extended range of communications and television services. With a launch mass of 3,000 kg., Amazonas 4A has a design lifespan of 15 years.

    Bulgarian pay-TV: the way forward
    October 2, 2013 09.30 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    BlizooConsolidation in the Bulgarian pay-TV market is a foregone conclusion, with the market likely to reach West European levels in terms of business models and competition within the next 3-5 years.
    The assessment, offered in a personal rather than institutional capacity, was given by Dimitar Radev, president of the Bulgarian Association of Cable Communication Operators (BACCO).
    Speaking at the Sofia Business Briefly, jointly organised by Broadband TV News and Telenor Satellite Broadcasting, he added that despite challenges in the pay-TV and broadband sectors, including having some of the richest content offers/fastest broadband speeds despite the lowest ARPUs in the EU, there were significant opportunities to explore in Bulgaria.
    ASO, for instance, is fuelling further adoption of digital pay-TV.
    The digital switchover, which was completed on September 30, was nevertheless one of the more controversial subjects discussed at the briefing.
    It has reportedly left hundreds of thousands of households with blank screens and is likely to benefit the take-up of DTH, cable and IPTV services in the country.
    Also speaking at the briefing, Didier Stoessel, vice chairman of Nova TV’s board of directors, said the MTG-backed broadcaster is now the leading internet and online provider in Bulgaria.
    Leiv Svenning, head of CEE, Telenor Satellite Broadcasting, meanwhile provided insights into his company’s strategy in the region, including Bulgaria, and Neven Dilkov, MD Neterra, spoke about its white-label platform, operated in partnership with Telenor.
    Boyko Vassilev Petrov, chief editor, current affairs at BTN, described the financially-challenged public broadcaster’s strategy, which includes multimedia and a migration to HD, while Stefan Lager, general manager of Zentario and VP sales of Zentario Group, described his company’s activities.
    Bulgaria’s digital TV market is dominated by the DTH platform Bulsatcom; cable operator Blizoo, which some reports say is up for sale; and DTH platform Vivacom TV, operated by the incumbent telco Vivacom (BTC).
    Together, they have around 1.5 million subscribers.
    Also present in the marketplace is M-Tel, which is backed by Telekom Austria and has an IPTV service.
    Representing Telekom Austria at the briefing, Stanislav Georgiev, said that satellite TV represents the next level of convergence.

    Eutelsat and Astra switch 28 East frequencies
    October 4, 2013 08.09 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    Astra uplinkEutelsat has ceased transmissions on the disputed German-controlled frequencies at 28.5 degrees East. They have now been adopted by SES.
    The move follows last months decision by the Arbitral Tribunal constituted under the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce of Paris.
    It a statement, SES said the two satellite operators had collaborated in the best interests of customers to ensure a smooth transition of operations. As of October 4, SES is operating and Eutelsat has ceased operating on these frequencies. The transfer was successfully completed in the night of 3-4 October.
    The frequencies, held through the German operator Media Broadcast, are used to broadcast to the UK, largely for the BSkyB and Freesat platforms.
    Eutelsat said revenues from the disputed frequencies are expected to be in the region of approximately €25m for each of the two following years.
    SES and Eutelsat are in continuing discussions to find a solution following the arbitration.
