The benefits of distributing your live content via AsiaSat 5

AsiaSat 5 is the most established Occasional Use (OU) neighbourhood in Australasia used by international broadcasters and sports rights holders. A single satellite feed enables you to access all major receive sites in Asia: you can widen your audience reach with a C-band footprint that covers more than 53 countries - spanning from Russia to New Zealand and from Japan to the Middle East. The high powered satellite can be received with smaller antennas than other satellites with equivalent reach.

Service Description

We provide satellite capacity on Asia’s prime orbital location for sports and news. This includes space only, or a full end to end service uplinked from our Hong Kong teleport and monitored 24/7 by our dedicated Occasional Use Master Control Room in the UK. We can add encryption and frame rate conversion as required and this comes with full monitoring, technical support and a dedicated account manager.
