Spacecom expands Nepal deal
January 2, 2018
Spacecom, the operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, has announced that Nepal’s Dish Media Network has furthered its long-term connection on the AMOS-4 satellite with a contract for more capacity. AMOS-4, from its 65°E prime orbital position, provides a wide array of satellite services to customers from South Asia to East Africa.
Dish Media Network owns Nepal’s fast growing DTH operator, Dishhome, whose distribution network covers all of Nepal. With substantial satellite capacity on AMOS-4, Dishhome will expand service offerings, adding more HD channels and bringing UHD to viewers. Dishhome’s capacity on AMOS-4 is contracted for the satellite’s lifetime.
Dish Media Network CEO Sudeep Acharya commented, “The significant growth of our broadcast operations is directly related to our long-term partnership with Spacecom and the capabilities of its AMOS-4 satellite. Dishhome is now able to offer better quality content as well as higher quality broadcast to improve our customers’ viewing experience and propel us to substantial growth.”
David Pollack, Spacecom president & CEO, added, “Our continuing and growing relationship with Dishhome is a testament to the satellite’s technical prowess and our team’s service-oriented approach. From AMOS-4’s 65°E position, Spacecom is able to meet their current and future needs for powerful and clear satellite signals upon which they can increase their services and subscriber base.”
