Panamsat, JSAT deliver satellite services in Asia Pacific

CONNECTICUT: Panamsat and JSat have announced the formation of a strategic alliance for the distribution of digital video, data and Internet services across the Asia Pacific market.

This alliance complements the original Panamsat and JSat joint venture called "Horizons," which supports the construction and operation of a Ku-band satellite over the US. Through this new agreement, PanAmSat and JSAT customers will be able to leverage the strength and expertise of each operator in the Asia Pacific region to deliver enhanced digital video, data and Internet delivery solutions to their own customers.

An official release informs that through this expanded relationship with JSat, Panamsat will be able to provide customers with an even greater level of power and service in the Asia Pacific market. Both the BT and JSat agreements are perfect examples of how Panamsat is using joint ventures and alliances in developing markets as a primary strategy for growth. Rather than launching new satellites as a means of expansion in new markets Panamsat is looking for opportunities to expand through collaboration and development with a trusted partner. This strategy results in a wide range of solutions for customers and expanded market access at reduced capital costs.

A leading satellite operator in the Asia Pacific region, JSat owns and operates a network of eight satellites and two ground facilities. Both companies will be able to provide customers with the best combined satellite distribution solutions available.

Through the expansion of the relationship, Panamsat customers will be able to distribute video programming and data in the Asia-Pacific market, via JSat's C-band payload on its JCSAT 2A and JCSAT 3 satellites and related ground facilities. Panamsat customers will also have access to JSAT's extensive range of communications and broadcasting services, as well as to its expertise in broadcasting to the Asian market. JSAT's customers will be able to take advantage of PanAmSat's PAS 2 and PAS 8 satellites, as well as PanAmSat's strong broadcasting capabilities, satellite neighborhoods, and ground facilities in the Asia Pacific region.

PanAmSat Corporation is the premier provider of global video and data broadcasting services via satellite. Operating a global network of 22 in-orbit spacecraft, the company claims to reach 98 per cent of the world's population through cable television systems, broadcast affiliates, direct-to-home operators, Internet service providers and telecommunications companies. Panamsat is 81 per cent owned by Hughes Electronics Corporation.

JSat is a leading satellite operator in the Asia-Pacific region. The company owns and operates eight satellites in seven orbital slots. JSat provides communications and broadcasting services that offer a range of unique features made possible by satellite communications which is well suited to support the high-volume, wide-distribution, high-speed networks.
