Reliability of service


ASTRA is always there for you


All machines can sometimes go wrong, but we have deployed our satellites in a unique way to minimise the chance of a mishap affecting your viewing. At each of our orbital positions we have stationed several satellites.

Not only does this "co-location" of satellites enable us to broadcast more channels to you from each orbital position, but each ASTRA satellite has spare transmission capacity that can be brought into operation in an instant should a fault develop with another transmitter or even a complete satellite.

In effect, our satellites are looking out for each other, so you can enjoy uninterrupted reception of all the channels, all of the time.

It gives peace of mind all round, and it's another reason to receive your satellite television from ASTRA, where you can be sure that you will never miss that key match from your home team or an episode of your favourite drama.
