    Numericable STB embedded in Loewe TVs

    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 03-10-2012


    The Mini-STB by Numericable will be embedded in German manufactured TV sets from Loewe as of the beginning of November.



    This exclusive six-month partnership will allow Numericable’s subs to access, from all Loewe’s new TV sets, the same TV bouquet as with an at-home STB, including HD and 3DTVchannels, radio stations, and EPG.

    Balky Briz M Gyro Unit Delays Astra-2G Launch On Proton

    A Nov. 28 launch of the Astra-2G satellite atop a Russian Proton rocket has been postponed due to a problem with a gyro unit in the rocket’s Briz M upper stage, according to International Launch Services (ILS), the Reston, Va.-based company that markets commercial Proton missions.

    The company says the launch was postponed "due to the off-nominal operation of the Briz M upper stage gyro unit during planned preflight testing," according to a Nov. 26 statement.

    Prelaunch tests were halted on the pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and both the rocket and spacecraft were returned to their assembly building, Russian space agency Roscosmos said Nov. 26.

    ILS, which manages commercial missions for Proton prime contractor Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center of Moscow, says the vehicle was destacked and the satellite removed from the fairing and stored in a safe configuration. There are no plans to defuel the spacecraft.

    "The additional time is needed due to the required destacking and replacement of the affected gyro unit and to ensure complete flight readiness of the vehicle," ILS said.

    The Nov. 28 launch was to be the first ILS Proton mission after a May 15 launch failure grounded the Russian rocket. Since returning to flight in September, Proton has conducted two missions for the Russian federal government, though the May mishap has already delayed Astra-2G for several months. Other commercial missions still waiting in the ILS queue include the second and third Global Xpress mobile communications satellites for London-based Inmarsat, which were expected to lift off atop Proton this year.

    Astra 2G successfully launched

    SES’s Astra 2G satellite has been successfully launched on an ILS Proton Breeze M booster at 03:37:49 Baikonur time (22:37:49 CET and 16:37:49 EST on December 27th). After a nine-hour, 12-minute mission, the Breeze M upper stage of the Proton rocket successfully released the Astra 2G satellite into geostationary transfer orbit.

    Astra 2G will be deployed at the 28.2/28.5 degrees orbital arc. The satellite was built for SES by Airbus Defence and Space. Based on the Eurostar E3000 platform, the spacecraft carries 62 Ku-band transponders, as well as four Ka-band transponders. The craft, which has a 15-year design lifetime, will enable the delivery of next generation broadcast and broadband services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

    Martin Halliwell, Chief Technology Officer of SES congratulated Airbus Defence and Space and ILS for the successful Astra 2G mission, a launch that marked the 24th SES satellite to be launched by ILS Proton, and the ninth Eurostar satellite in the SES fleet. “The Astra 2G satellite completes our significant replacement investments at a strategic orbital neighbourhood over Europe and provides 10 incremental transponders for expansion while cementing our unique co-positioning satellite back-up-scheme,” he advised.

    According to Halliwell, the spacecraft includes the capability to connect West Africa to Europe via Ka-band. “In combination with Astra 2E and Astra 2F which were launched in September 2012 and 2013 respectively, Astra 2G is the culmination of our fleet renewal programme at the 28.2/28.5 degrees orbital arc. The new state-of-the-art SES satellites provide more focused and higher power to our broadcast customers, while the Ka-band on board supports the delivery of next-generation satellite broadband services as well as intercontinental connectivity between Africa and Europe,” he explained.

    nc+ to compensate customers

    nc+ to compensate customers

    Some former and current subscribers of the Polish DTH platform nc+ will either be compensated or receive services for free.

    This follows a ruling by the country’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK), which launched an investigation into the activities of ITI Neovision, the platform’s operator, in December 2015 following complaints from some subscribers.

    The UOKiK concluded that there had been irregularities in the termination or extension of contracts, mainly over the phone.

    ITI Neovision’s actions were particularly disadvantagoeus for consumers who could not withdraw from contracts despite having the right to do so.

    The company has now made a commitment to change its disputed practices and compensate consumers, providing the latter with specific benefits within the next six months.
