PanAmSat launches Galaxy 14

PanAmSat successfully launched its new Galaxy 14 satellite Aug. 13 aboard a Soyuz-Fregat rocket, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The satellite, to be co-located with Galaxy 12 at 125 degrees west longitude, will enable PanAmSat to have two in-orbit spares for its U.S. fleet. Although designated a back-up satellite, the C-band spacecraft is designed to deliver digital video programming, HDTV, VOD and IPTV service throughout the continental United States.
