Sun Direct doubling satellite capacity on MEASAT

Sun Direct is one of six private DTH platforms serving India, and currently registers around 5.13 million subscribers from a total base of about 29 million DTH homes.

Sun Direct, the Indian direct to home (DTH) satellite TV platform, has leased an additional two Ku-band transponders on Malaysia’s MEASAT-3 satellite, doubling its existing capacity.
“We are delighted to be able to support Sun Direct with additional capacity,” said Paul Brown-Kenyon, chief operating officer, MEASAT. “Supporting five DTH platforms in three markets across two satellites, 91.5 degrees east is one of the strongest DTH orbital slots in Asia.”

MEASAT has a fleet of four communications satellites, which cover about 145 countries across the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Africa and Europe and reach about 80% of the world’s population.
