Israel’s Spacecom, operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, has announced that Nepal’s Dish Media Network has furthered its long-term association with AMOS-4. Located at the 65°E prime orbital position, AMOS-4 provides Dish Media Network’s Dishhome service with substantial satellite capacity enabling the DTH provider to expand its SD and HD channel services.
Founded in 2009, Dish Media Network is the only DTH operator with distribution covering all of Nepal. One of the country’s fastest-growing operators in the broadcast and transmission services industry for digital television channels, Dishhome’s capacity on AMOS-4 is contracted for the satellite’s lifetime.
Dish Media Network CEO Sudeep Acharya commented: “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.”
According to David Pollack, President & CEO of Spacecom: “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.”
AMOS-4 has eight Ku-band transponders of 108MHz and four high-power Ka-band transponders of 216MHz, each with steerable beams. The Ku and Ka transponders create a powerful platform, enabling a wide range of connectivity options to reach throughout the region’s vast geography.
