    The way they move is to raise/lower orbit and allow the Earth to revolve slower/faster underneath it. If it is only partway to the desired altitude it won't "move" as fast, and a bigger altitude...

    I always wondered how much of a discount a chain like BW3 or in this case AMC gets for NFLST when they are buying for dozens of locations. If they have 300 seat theaters, there's no way they are...

    I remember when they placed the other 7 in service a month ago or whenever it was wondering why they only had done 7. Maybe they just screwed up, and when getting ready to plan how to allocate those...

    The first ND game on NBC is this weekend, and the schedule would overlap with the FS1 game. Have they ever had two 4K live sporting events at the same time before? If they are only showing one, at...

    Isn't the 'box' much smaller than .1 degree? I would imagine they'd want to size the big dishes so they are large enough to hit only one satellite, but small enough that they can aim them in the...

    I doubt that's a big problem. When spacing antennas you are supposed to maintain horizontal separation of 1/2 the wavelength (and avoid exact multiples of the wavelength up to 3-4x or so) That's a...

    Ah I was thinking Mexico for some reason, where people are losing ability to see 101 tpns due to the tighter CONUS pattern for T15 (and presumably T16) than the older satellites.

    Why would they carry everything else Fox has in 4K and not the NFL games? That theory makes no sense. I really doubt there is any marketing win announcing it in advance. Who is going to switch...

    Might want to check out TLEs for T15 next week as it is scheduled to begin drifting to 103 "as early as Sept. 16th" per their FCC filing, and is expected to take 8 days. So we'll probably see 103ca...

    Good catch, that's interesting. I suppose taking them down one transponder at a time is one way to go, though the benefit of shutting down transponders one at a time escapes me. Maybe I'm missing...

    Right on schedule, they said it would reach 101 on Sept 4th. I wonder how quickly they can/will cut over the 101 CONUS tpns from T15 to T16? If they are looking to move quickly they could have T15...

    Yes, the ones on 99/103 spot beams will be MPEG4 SD. There are already a lot of such dupes and AFAIK fully covered the spot beams on 119, guess they are doing the spot beams on 101 now. Maybe this is...

    I imagine they are tweaking the FEC ratio on spot beams occasionally, as markets add new channels or in this case need to add dupe some MPEG2 SD locals. They have some that are 8PSK 2/3 so those spot...

    Ah OK yes I expect reference to it will be deleted from receivers, though they may not bother and just wait until 119 goes away and then eliminate the references to SL5 LNBs entirely.
