Israel’s YES pay-TV operation has extended its access to Spacecom’s Amos 7 satellite for an period from September 2024 to February 2025.

The lease extension represents another $7 million of revenue for satellite operator Spacecom.

Telco Bezeq owns YES but is in the process of switching away from satellite to an all-OTT service.

Amos-7 operates (with Amos-3) from 4 degrees West.

Spacecom in a regulatory filing stated: “YES received notice from Spacecom whereby following the Ministry of Communications’ approval to extend Spacecom’s use of the Amos 7 satellite, Spacecom exercised its option to extend its lease for the Amos 7 satellite until February 2025. Accordingly, YES received an extension of the lease for the Amos 7 satellite from September 2024 to February 2025.”
