Controversial Iran-backed news channel Press TV has been removed from Intelsat’s Galaxy-19 satellite (97 degrees West), meaning that cable headends in the US and Canada can no longer pick up the channel.

The channel has, one way or another, been banned over Europe and taken off the air by satellite operators as varied as Eutelsat, Hispasat, AsiaSat, Intelsat and Hispasat.
