C-SPAN Joins Intelsat’s Highly Penetrated Galaxy 14 Video Distribution Neighborhood

Galaxy 14 distributes more than 200 channels in North America, with over 100 channels in HD.

Satellite communications provider Intelsat has announced that C-SPAN, the Washington D.C. based suite of public affairs networks, has signed a new, long-term contract for C-band satellite services on Intelsat’s Galaxy 14 satellite.

C-SPAN will join a select group of top tier programmers on Intelsat’s highly penetrated Galaxy 14 neighborhood located at 125° West. Galaxy 14 distributes more than 200 channels in North America, with over 100 channels in HD. Intelsat will transport the signals from C-SPAN’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. via IntelsatOne fiber and provide an uplink to Galaxy 14 for distribution to cable head-ends via the Intelsat teleport in Ellenwood, Ga. Intelsat’s Riverside teleport in California will provide an additional disaster recovery uplink. C-SPAN is expected to transition its programming to Galaxy 30, a next-generation Intelsat satellite, after Galaxy 30’s planned launch in 2020.
