The Sirius 4 satellite has been renamed ASTRA 4A, following the change of its owner SES Sirius to SES ASTRA. ASTRA 4A is located in the Astra 5°E orbital position and will continue to provide digital television and radio broadcasts, data, and interactive services to Nordic and Baltic countries, eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa using both Ku and Ka bands.

ASTRA 4A brings the number of satellites called ASTRA currently in operation to 15. The ASTRA 4B satellite is in construction and is expected to be launched to join ASTRA 4A at ASTRA 5.0°E at the end of next year.
