Spacecom's AMOS-4 Satellite Furthers Dish Media Network's DTH Operations in Nepal

Spacecom (Tel Aviv Stock Exchange: SCC), the operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, has announced that Nepal's Dish Media Network has furthered their long-term association with AMOS-4 — located at the 65 degrees E prime orbital position, AMOS-4 provides Dishhome with substantial satellite capacity enabling the DTH provider to expand its SD and HD channel services.

Founded in 2009, Dish Media Network Pvt. Ltd. is the only DTH operator with distribution covering all of Nepal. One of Nepal’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.

AMOS-4 has eight Ku-band transponders of 108 MHz and four high-power Ka-band transponders of 216 MHz, 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. Offering extensive broadcast and broadband reach for satellite services including DTH, video distribution, VSAT communications and broadband Internet, the satellite's geographic position meets broadcast and broadband needs within the Asian, African and Middle Eastern markets.

Dish Media Network CEO Sudeep Acharya commented that this agreement will keep his firm's growth trajectory moving forward and upwards. The deep association with Spacecom’s AMOS-4 enables the company to build out and expand the firm's brand, further the strategic goals and strengthening operations throughout Nepal.

According to David Pollack, president & CEO of Spacecom,  this agreement with Dish Media Network adds strength to Spacecom's 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.
