They just recently launched a new birds 33 and 34 into orbit.

33 Galaxy bird has a Ku band and Ka band and will be located at 133 W* location.

Any chance they will be using videos feeds on Ku and possibly Ka bands? :hungry

Don't want to see other data feeds junk.:p

Happy satellite TV DXing everyone's!!:hatsoff

Just Google it:

"Galaxy 33 will be the replacement satellite at 133 degrees west once it is in service in early November. The satellite will provide service continuity for distribution to cable headends throughout the United States."

"Galaxy 34 will replace Galaxy 12 at 129 degrees west once it is in service in late 2022. This satellite will serve as the new restoration payload for Intelsat’s Galaxy cable distribution customers, allowing the previous restoration role at 121 degrees west to be converted to a core cable distribution satellite."
