Hot Bird installation and support in Surrey, Sussex and Kent

Hot Bird is a group of satellites operated by Eutelsat, located at 13°E over the Equator (orbital position) and with a transmitting footprint over Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.


Only digital radio and television channels are transmitted by the Hot Bird constellation, both free-to-air and encrypted. In addition, there are a few interactive and IP services. The satellites currently operate at 13° East and are numbered 13B, 13C and 13D. Up to 1000 television and radio channels are available Free-to-air.

ASTRA is the common name given to both the SES ASTRA Company and the satellites it operates. ASTRA owns and operates a fleet of communications satellites in geostationary orbit, primarily used for broadcasting digital TV, radio and multimedia services to cable networks and direct to homes in Europe and surrounding areas. Digital satellite TV uses a completely different format to the old analogue broadcasts, providing a better picture and sound for the viewer and the capacity for more channels for the broadcaster.
