    Default China launches satellite to take TV signal nationwide

    China launches satellite to take TV signal nationwide
    Friday, June 1st, 2007

    China launched a telecommunications satellite today that aims to bring television signals to every home in the nation, state press said. The satellite was launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Centre in southwest China’s Sichuan province just after midnight Friday morning, China News Service reported.

    The Sino-Sat III satellite will provide telecommunications, television broadcasting and digital transmission services to commercial and state enterprise clients, the report said. The satellite had been originally slated to work with the Sino-Sat II telecommunications satellite that was launched in October last year but was rendered inoperable after its solar panels failed to deploy, it said.

    A replacement for Sino-Sat II will take another three years to build, the report said, at which time China hopes to be able to send television signals to every home in the nation, including those in remote mountainous regions.
