The entire country.

Spot beamed would be to perhaps a 400 mile diameter circle.
I live in a spotbeam for Dish Network, supplying Los Angeles, California.

Most FTA satellite signals would be aimed to conform to the boundaries of one or more countries.
example: Galaxy 25 @ 97º, on Ku band.

edit: oops, and a tip of the hat to Lak7
I was just too slow looking up a sample map - :)
Galaxy 27 @ 129º does have a Ku spotbeam for Hawaii.
... and one for C-band, too.

yes those are scrambled channels so you cant get them

There are only 2 types of spotbeams we worry about in FTA
-the Atlantic satellites where there are "europe" footprint and "us" footrpint
-one C-Band satellite has spotbeams for Alaska and British Columbia
