    Astra 2N 28E

    Has anyone else heard that Astra 2N is due to go into service in the 2nd quarter of 2011 with, apparently, a very tight footprint over the UK which will probably result in loss of Sky, BBC, ITV, etc in Spain.

    Re: Astra 2N 28E

    I understand that 1N WAS being deployed there to provide EXTRA capacity there - and to supply additional frequencies for more HD channels, as the current satellites are very very full...and as more HD channels come online then more capacity will be required - not as a replacement.

    BUT, until a week or so ago, it was now going to be deployed to help out at 19 east instead (Astra website)

    But now the location for 1N is no longer available, and so where it it going is anyones guess (maybe 23.5, maybe 19, yes maybe even 28...who knows!)

    There is no Astra 2N in the pipeline at the moment.

    The new Astra 1N satellite is now back to going to 19 east, according to the Astra website.
