Orbit Rock features classic rock and roll from the late 1960s, 70s and 80s from artists like Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and The Who. Orbit Rock will also highlight music from more recent times. The Hop highlights great hits from the 1950s and 60s, the era when rock and roll was born. Oyeme! is the WorldSpace tropical music channel offering beats of Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cumbia, and the latest in Latino Dance Mixes. It features top 40 Latin music with emphasis on the Tropical music genre and will be hosted in English.

The channels are exclusive to the WorldSpace system and can only be heard by using a WorldSpace satellite audio receiver. The three new services are the latest additions to an existing line-up of a variety of WorldSpace music channels that range from jazz to classical music and pop to country. They complement a diverse group of brand name broadcast partners such as Swiss Radio and Leman Telecommunications that have recently signed on with WorldSpace to broadcast via the AfriStar and AsiaStar satellites.
