Spacecom's AMOS-3 communications satellite, from its 4 degrees West prime orbital position, is supporting the Tournament by carrying live broadcasts, behind the scenes content, special interviews and more from France to Budapest.

Spacecom's newest satellite, AMOS-6, is scheduled to launch to the AMOS 4 degrees West 'hot spot' later in 2016. This satellite's 39 Ku-band segments and 24 Ka-band beams will provide a wide array of services. The new satellite will incorporate new technologies such as High Throughput Ka-band spot beams for improved broadband internet access. The Ka-band spot beams will cover Europe and Africa as well as Ku-band technologies for new and existing clients. Its Ka-band beams have been selected by Facebook to be the satellite backbone of an initiative to bring broadband Internet to Sub Sahara Africa.
