Badr Al Nile Hotspot at 7/8° West Orbital position
NOORSAT 7 (E7WA) provides high power and full coverage of the entire Arab World. The satellite became operational in 2011, with an expected lifetime of 15 years.
We were proud to expand our DTH TV satellite capacities with NOORSAT 7B (E8WB). The satellite was launched in August 2015 to meet burgeoning demand across the Arab region. The satellite began operations on the 1st of October 2015 and services were transferred from the NOORSAT 7B (E8WC) gap filler satellite. Located at the most watched Hotspot, the satellite also features an anti-jamming feature to protect TV channels rom possible jamming and interference.
Badr Al Arab Hotspot at 25.5°- 26° East Orbital position
With its unique, extensive coverage and high power, NOORSAT 1 (E25B) ensures the reach of TV channels to the entire Arab World.
All receiving satellite dishes currently pointed at the vicinity of orbital locations 7/8° West and/or 25.5°- 26° East, can receive the TV channels broadcasted by NOORSAT 7, NOORSAT 7B and NOORSAT 1 satellites, respectively, without the need to re-point or make any modifications or additions.
