It may sit where it is for years .Wonder why so long to get Canadian approval?

Or be dropped after E23 co-locates and the transition is completed?
The Canadians are rather protective in ensuring their home based companies reap the financial benefits of their assigned slots. So I'm guessing Nimiq 5 will continue to have the business.Or be dropped after E23 co-locates and the transition is completed?
That may be the reason Dish's co-location request hasn't been approved yet...
Just answered my question by upgrading to a Wally from a ViP211k. Did not know a Wally is also called a HEVC211.If Dish goes to HEVC, they won’t need Nimiq 5 anymore.
Can Hoppers and Wallys decode HEVC?
E23 would make a great satellite for new HEVC encoded signals.
