Eutelsat 8WB

Satellite Coverage
Middle East, North Africa
 
E8WB satellite that is collocated with existing Nilesat satellites is having whole purpose to provide additional frequencies to already fully booked 7.8°west space segments for Middle East distribution. End viewers with their home antennas to 7.8°west orbital position do not notice any difference in reception and see the broadcasted channels as part of Nilesat fleet. There is no need to adjust any antennas or anything else as due to higher satellite power over the region all channels are automatically received by any dish appointed to 7.8°west.
