EuropeStar in talks with three cos for DTH venture

Global satellite major, Europestar is negotiating with three companies in India for leasing out up to six transponders of its satellite for direct-to-home operations. The company would lease out four to six transponders for DTH in India, for which it would tie-up with one of the three companies that it is currently negotiating with.

The company launched Europestar satellite on October 29 from an Arian rocket, from Kourou.

The satellite is expected to transmit television programmes and Internet communications across Europe, South Africa, the Middle-East, India and Southeast Asia during its 15 year life. Europestar is expected to start its commercial operations in January.
