PanAmSat PAS-8 Satellite Covering New Zealand, New Caledonia and Fiji
Posted on 18-Apr-2006 10:04. | Tags Filed under: News.



PanAmSat had repointed a beam on the PAS-8 Pacific Ocean Region satellite to cover every corner of New Zealand, New Caledonia and Fiji.

The Company recently received authorization from the FCC to redirect the Ku-band South East Asia beam of the PAS-8 Satellite to cover the southwest Pacific, thus opening up these markets for additional PanAmSat services.

PanAmSat will commence providing service on this beam from 15 April 2006. Broadcast television, VSAT services, broadband, emergency response, disaster recovery and satellite news gathering will all be available through the satellite service.

PAS-8 is also home to some of the best-known broadcasting and cable television networks including: TVB, ABS-CBN, Turner Broadcasting, ESPN, CCTV, CNBC Asia, Discovery Networks and NHK.

The PAS-8 provides video, telecommunications and Internet access throughout the Asia-Pacific region, including a high-power C-band beam that stretches from Bangladesh to the western United States. The satellite contains high-power Ku-band spot beams that cover Australian, Northeast Asia and now the Southwest Pacific.

C-band and Ku-band customers are both able to use the PanAmSat teleport in Napa, Calif. to send signals directly to Asia or to receive PAS-8 signals in the United States for onward transmission over other PanAmSat satellites worldwide.
