Mezzo is changing the parameters at 13°E
Music channel Mezzo,a classic, Opera, ballet, jazz, appeared on the new transponder in position 13°E.
Broadcasting in SD is running at capacity operator MX1 (former RR Media/RRsat). In Poland Mezzo-known to subscribers of the platform nc+ and are available as additional options for the price 5 zl/month, the station is also present in the proposal of some cable networks. Currently, the channel Mezzo broadcast from the transponder of the operator GlobeCast. Broadcasting capacity MX1 has not yet set a conditional access system, so it is not available for spectators, who paid for access to nc+. This is only short-term tests in the future will include other systems of the CA and the channel will be moved. Despite the tendency of transition to MPEG-4, new stream is in MPEG-2.

Classical music lovers, using the range nc+, quite a long time raise the question about the absence of Mezzo channel in HD – about 6 years a child station Mezzo Live HD (program different).She is available to offer certain cable networks (eg, UPC), but in nc+ no. The direct cause is the lack of broadcasting on Mezzo Live HD 13°E. Perhaps, if Mezzo decide to change provider, it will be seen,as a separate stream Mezzo Live HD on 13°E and can greatly help in acceding to the offer of nc+.

Intelsat 33E will arrive on orbit testing in December 2016 year
Intelsat have updated the date of service of the satellite Intelsat 33E, successfully put into orbit 24 August 2016 year.
Date of service is adjusted from the fourth quarter of 2016 year to the first quarter of 2017 year. Due to a malfunction in the engine of small thrust, used to increase the orbit, the raising of the orbit will take more time, than planned and the satellites will arrive in orbit testing in December 2016 year. Solar panels and antennas of the satellite were successfully deployed and once testing is complete the satellite will be ready to work somewhere in the first quarter 2017 year. Boeing, the manufacturer of the satellite, currently working with the company, to determine the cause of the malfunction of a thruster.

ATTENTION! Perhaps a temporary deterioration in the reception quality
In connection with solar interference autumn 2016 year possible deterioration of the reception quality of the satellite signal.
For subscriber antenna with a diameter of 55 cm in the area of broadcasting satellites "Express–АМУ1 and Eutelsat 36B may result in poor reception in the period from 04 on 20 October 2016 years in the time interval 12:20 before 12:40 (Moscow time), the maximum duration 20 minutes.

The theme of both stations is the main entertainment. Gumor TV focuses on programs humorystycznych, comedies and cartoons. In turn Babaj TV offers thrillers, also erotic horror movies. Both stations share an antenna time. The other station, which is addressed to an adult audience, emitted from 23:00

The sender explained the decision large financial losses, suffered from Mar 2014 year. Was informed in a special letter to cable operators. The channels on the satellite back in June 2015 year, but not long prophesied . A short episode of the presence of the satellite took place in half of February 2016 year. According to, owned by mediasat appearance and rapid disappearance of both channels on the satellite has an ordinal character – the goal is to get under the monitoring of the Ukrainian media regulator and witness, the license beware. Ukrainian legislation in this case is a little outdated and requires updating. The sender, who wants to imagine a TV channel among operators, has a choice of two conditions: to obtain a satellite license or be licensed in cities and operators as a cable channel. In the best times, when the market was money, senders would choose a companion. When the situation changed, live satellite, which absorbed about a month 300-400 th. hryvnia, he was motionless. Along with the development of technologies of data transfer and coverage of Ukraine, distribution channels became easier and a lot cheaper using the Internet.

20-anniversary of the "NTV-Plus", or about the company, never miss a chance to miss the chance
1 September 1996 year began analog broadcasting channel "Nashe Kino" channel "NTV-Plus", thus was laid the launch of this first Russian satellite platform for direct TV. Now, in September 2016 year, celebrated the 20th anniversary of the mentioned platforms. In connection with round date in the following subjective notes view, how much "NTV-Plus" has reached.
Such number of subscribers (on 2016 g.) it is a shame for "NTV-Plus"
On the eve of the anniversary, namely 31 August 2016 g., media has published quite a boastful interview, the current Director General, Mikhail Demin about imaginary success (value judgment) company, in which he said in particular: "By the middle of 2015 year we have topped 1 million subscribers and continue to grow. This number of existing contracts, including both private, and legal entities". End quote. And this is the most recent official data on the number of subscribers "NTV-Plus". But, as everyone knows, to have this number of subscribers after, as of this satellite platform has worked for twenty years in a country with a population of almost 150 million, while the first ten years had no competitors — it's just a shame. Recall, the first competitor is "NTV-Plus", "Tricolor TV" has started work in November 2005 g, now scored, at least, 12 million subscribers. The second main entelechy competitor – "Orion Express" appeared only in 2007 g., and he now has three times more subscribers, than the "NTV-Plus".
Having looked through the obvious
It is well known, what the above historical failure to develop a subscriber base satellite platform "NTV-Plus" has occurred solely because of her stupid policy of attracting subscribers, lasted, at least, first 15 years of this platform, when she missed a chance to score truly massive and nationwide, if I may say so, subscribers. For the first fifteen years of the existence of "NTV-Plus" top-managers ranted about, that satellite television is "elite product", exposing a wild tariffs viewers. As a result: in 2004 g. (ie. shortly before the arrival of the first competitor of "NTV-Plus" – the aforementioned "Tricolor TV") "NTV-Plus" was only 360 th. Subscribers. (A), it would seem, then just reduce the price "NTV-Plus", and the caller would in this platform "shaft cut". Because at that time many in Russia (between, the way, huge country) suffered with essential technique, even the basic channels. And not only in the villages, but in the other cities. And not only that there are some remote areas — it was enough to drive off from Moscow in kilometers 70, and already air signal UHF channels started to "crumble" — Ostankino tower simply could not cover all the suburbs – the situation was similar in the regions (because the problem was system — start after the collapse of the USSR many terrestrial channels, in particular, tn. UHF, the country was not created by efficient branching network for their airtime distribution, normal carrier network, remained only the first and second state TV channels, other channels develop a network of transmitters, that is called, "through the stump deck", not paying attention (Perhaps, only NTV under Gusinsky has made any meaningful effort, to cover its broadcasting signal through terrestrial transmitters do the whole country – the rest appeared at the channels were only interested in big cities).
Blockhead (value judgment) management "NTV-Plus" for the entire period of the company is evident not only in the General questions (eg, in many years of misunderstanding lying on the surface of the need to create offers an inexpensive package of basic TV channels), but in the particulars. For example, private miscalculation was, as for the radio experts believe, that "NTV-Plus" in the 1990s. was a great opportunity to engage audiences in a relatively inexpensive way — looking up at the moon radiopaque – it occurred shortly before music FM station in Russia has experienced a real boom, and broadcasting of different countries in Russian were looking for an alternative to the short waves (now the trick with RadioButton, probably, does not work – music FM stations all tired, and the international service politically undesirable in today's Russia, Yes, and have already found their niche, broadcasting via the Internet).
Social irresponsibility "NTV-Plus" the first 15 years of its existence
"NTV-Plus" for many years has shown the social irresponsibility of the country's population. Recall, "NTV-Plus" from 2001 g. actually belonged to the state via state-controlled Gazprom-Media holding", despite the fact that the leadership of the satellite platform were well aware of, in deplorable condition essential distribution channels in the country. Some believe, "NTV-Plus" for its inaction in creating affordable satellite TV channel packs in the first 15 years of its existence, brought suffering resident of the country, belonged to this organization (note, "NTV-Plus" usually dumps the responsibility for their inaction on the creation of social. package of TV channels in the state enterprise "Space communications", which supposedly should have been in the past to attend to the social stream satellite packages direct TV broadcast; FSUE "Space communications", in turn, said, what government she prescribed it deals only with technical computer repair and service, but not direct TV). Anyway, "NTV-Plus" is not distinguished, corporate social responsibility in this aspect.
Technical "invention" from "NTV-Plus", creates inconvenience to the viewer
Some time after its launch, the technical service "NTV-Plus" has decided to broadcast via tn. circular polarization. Once for the old RBC, the author of these lines studied the issue. Here is a small quote from my notes on this topic, published a few years ago:
"When 1999 year, the Russian pioneer of direct satellite broadcasting "NTV-Plus" has launched a digital package, in contrast to global practice, the linear polarization, from the very beginning used (and continues to use to this day) circular polarization. According to one version, this was done in order, to distinguish the channels package "NTV-Plus" from foreign channels, also broadcast from the satellite Eutelsat W4/W7 at position 36 grad. in d..
Manager for external relations "NTV-Plus" Maria Dolgov expressed to the author of these lines my personal opinion, or rather the lack thereof, on this subject some time ago as follows: "I have been working in the company, but I never thought, why we use circular polarization. (A), true, Why? Probably, historically".
To make the package "NTV-Plus", on a satellite dish antenna require a Converter with circular polarization. In the end the receiver, connected to such antenna,, automatically searches for the satellite only channels with this polarization. You can manually try to register the channels with linear polarization, but their signal is so attenuated, they usually are not prescribed.
In other words, "NTV-Plus" from the first days of work looped subscribers only on their channels. Although from the outset on Eutelsat W4/W7 in unencrypted form is present channels from Azerbaijan, Armenia, Italy, Iraq and several other countries. Later appeared other Russian satellite operators "Tricolor TV" and New Media Legend was forced to adopt a standard circular polarization, starting to work through the same satellite.
In addition to circular polarization, there is another reason for the isolation of the Russian audience of satellite television in Europe. When in the middle of 1990-ies "NTV-Plus" was looking for a companion to work (and Russian satellites, focused on direct broadcasting, then there was), the company opted for little-known isolated Eutelsat SESAT (now Eutelsat W4/W7).
"NTV-Plus" could rent transponders and popular already then the Hotbird satellite group (owned by Eutelsat), a signal which in Russia is almost as powerful, as with the spacecraft in the orbital point 36 grad. V. D., but prefer to save on rent of satellite capacity. In the end, the Russian audience for many years accustomed to the idea, that satellite TV is something paid and insulated, like cable pack, only through the "plate" (after all, in the position 36 grad. it was available only on "NTV-Plus").
Informally, the technical service "NTV-Plus has always confirmed, the company originally chose the satellite SESAT, as it was much cheaper, than already promoted by the time other Western-European satellites. In those days in Russia, few people have heard about the possibility of receiving satellite TV signal on a small homemade antenna, and it was necessary to make it as simple as possible the process of finding channels. Based on this, the technical service company was tasked to do so, to the user when the automatic search can find all TV channels "NTV-Plus", to other channels "do not interfere". This circular polarization was perfect.
One of the regional Directors of Eutelsat, who is the owner of the eponymous satellites, Karen Badalov once said in a conversation with me CSTB, that circular polarization for the Russian platforms on Eutelsat W4/W7 was "historically accepted", so how to be confirmed, there are no technological reasons to begin broadcasting in this polarization of the first Russian provider of direct satellite TV did not exist.
Technical Director of "Orion Express" Konstantin Saltykov expressed the view that, why "NTV-Plus" at the time, chose circular polarization, and why the "Orion Express" is broadcasting in linear polarization: "When "NTV-Plus" was launched, his Department just moved to Ku-diapason, which now, mainly, and works (Russian) direct satellite broadcasting, circular polarization satellites of the previous generation. It was a very interesting interesting solution, from the point of view of "NTV-Plus". In Europe, then have all the new satellites worked, using linear polarization, which is believed to be slightly more economical from the point of view of energy. But the "NTV-Plus" wanted to bind and satellites, and viewers to your project, Therefore,, when Gusinsky ordered the manufacture of the satellite "Bonum", and when he began cooperation with the European satellite Eutelsat W4, everywhere for "NTV-Plus" was chosen circular polarization. Then there are, in Europe, no commercial operators in this polarization did not work, so the audience, and the manufacturer of the satellite, starting cooperation, it was harder to get away from "NTV-Plus". Tricolor Tv», arriving at the satellite used "NTV-Plus" simply by inertia began to use the same polarization — circular. As for the "Orion Express", we started with the Russian satellite Express AM2, which is now out of order. We didn't have much choice of satellite tanks, so we took the polarization, used Express AM2. Then we moved on to other satellites, everywhere keeping continuity in polarization, previously selected — linear, t.. we have already had a client base of audience, has appropriate equipment for linear polarization", said Konstantin Saltykov in the interview to the author of this term a few years ago.
And on channels "NTV-Plus"
Currently (2016 g.) the user "NTV-Plus" no longer considers satellite TV "elitist product". On the satellite platform there are channel packages at very affordable prices. However,, as many believe, it is not necessary to remove all of these economy packages all the fun, So, what these packages at affordable prices I would not like to see the gift and. It seems, "NTV-Plus" would, given the financial safety net behind it all known gas giant, to collect their packages in a more balanced way. Though, on the other hand, I think, what the presence behind the "NTV-Plus" gas giant, plays with NTV-Plus" is often a cruel joke. Management NTV-Plus" feels, as far as can be judged, part of a huge bureaucratic machine does not want to think quickly and creatively, and here, considered, the aforementioned blockhead (value judgment) in decision-making, leading to strategic blunders. The main of which, what we talked about at the beginning of this review, it was not imposed at the time of channel packages at prices, acceptable to a mass audience.
Not much now can flash "NTV-Plus". Everything else, from the beginning 2016 g. it does not produce its own TV channels. But private TV channels – this was a big plus to the satellite platform. Now the same "NTV-Plus" is just the technical relay. True, considered, the old memory, first among equals. As they say, the composition of the broadcast "NTV-Plus" claim in the Kremlin administration. "NTV-Plus" not a bad show isn't it? The platform has demonstrated it again, when quick, much faster than his competitor, the "Tricolor", on orders from above in 2014 g. thrown from its membership a landmark TV channel "Rain". Say, after that, the platform has lost some of their subscribers. But it is no wonder that some say, "NTV-Plus" company, never miss a chance to miss the chance. Large and small. Maybe, took a chance then and would have left the satellite platform sole this channel in its composition and would save and subscribers, and at least some respect from them.
But in General, now (2016 g.) "NTV-Plus" has all the chances to turn into a run, an unremarkable satellite platform-repeater third tier, of which there are many in different countries. The only thing that remains from "NTV-Plus" in any case – her story, the fact that she started the first direct satellite TV in this part of the world.

MTS TV ": flown, hurry — buy and...
For satellite operators there comes a time of hopes and expectations. The summer season gradually nearing completion. Ahead is autumn and time, which used to be called the "season of sales". There is still a certain percentage of unreached satellite digital TV audience, who wants to install it. Therefore, the whole struggle for this book boils down to, to get it. In connection with the above reported, that satellite DTH operator "MTS TV" 1 September began the unusual action called "Easy start".
The final subscriber acquires a satellite television package "MTS TV" almost "penny". 2500 rubles is the cost of the full kit and just 1500 rubles — the cost is small.
The large set includes a satellite dish and universal LNB. In small they are not. Why such a low price? The point is that, that it the caller is prompted to purchase a satellite receiver, a CAM module with card access for monthly fee. Monthly rate too promotional, but he's not 499 or 599 rubles per month (the action is "Connect 0"). The subscriber of "Easy start" is proposed to further connect 7 children's television, which are not included in the basic paid package and three adult channels. Thus, the cost of the subscription fee increases with 140 before 250 rubles per month. We have no information about that, will it be possible later to switch to a cheaper rate.
Thus, "MTS TV" makes the cheapest offer in the market of satellite equipment. True, the buyer of this kit should already have either a HD satellite receiver with a slot for a conditional access module, or TV with integrated satellite receiver.
The deadline for completion of action is unknown.

Media Broadcast will turn off one transponder at 13°E
German satellite operator Media Broadcast may release in the near future one transponder on the satellite Eutelsat Hot Bird 13B (13°E) and use it for new services.
Transponder No. 155 frequency 11,604 GHz, Pol. (H) (SR: 27500, FEC: 5/6; DVB-S/QPSK) almost free – it left a three-channel SD. The operator 1 September began broadcasting the English-language Deutsche Welle channel (DW) the accompanying radio DW on Eutelsat Hot Bird 13E (13°E), TP. 127 (11,054 GHz, Pol. (H), SR: 27500, FEC: 5/6; DVB-S/QPSK). On the same day they were joined by Italian channel TV Juwelo, Which one, most likely, will be moved again, since the stream of this station began on tp. 133 (11,179 GHz, Pol. (H), SR: 27500, FEC: 3/4; DVB-S/QPSK) operators and Harmonic Telespazio. Currently tp. 155 are the channels TV Rus, Iran E Aryaee TV and Lalish TV, which Media Broadcast has not started alternative broadcasting. The reason for the release of tp. 155 not officially known. Note we can take three options: the transponder is turned off, or goes on the need for distribution of content in HD or UHD of the same operator, or be acquired by another client. It is worth noting, what tp. 155 used Media Brodcast on the need for a satellite digital television for more than ten years.
