Avg transponder lease is 1M/yr.
Irrelevant when you own the satellite. They are not leasing transponders (except on 61.5º which is a long story and on 105º which isn't the issue here).JL

If they own it, does that mean its free? The cost to build, launch and maintain a bird is expensive. Just having bigger guide there will waste bandwidth, that was the point I was trying to make. Heck, these satellites have limited life and they need to be replaced.

No, but it does mean that they don't have to worry about "per transponder" rentals. ALL of their satellites have excess capacity enough for a bigger program guide. It isn't like they have to rent the space.
