WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-- Olympusat, Inc., one of the largest independent media companies specializing in the ownership, distribution, production and technical services of Spanish and English-language networks, announced the process of moving its network program services to satellite SES-1@101 Degrees West onNovember 30, 2017. 

At the moment Olympusat transmits 35 HD and SD Television networks over Transponders 19 and 20 on the Intelsat Galaxy 23 @ 121 Degrees West (G-23). Intelsat which operates G-23 will over time be changing that satellite to a "Back-Up" satellite, thus making it no longer available for Olympusat's transponders.

Olympusat started a "Dual Illumination" period to both G-23 & SES-1 transponders in earlySeptember 2017. This Dual Illumination period will end onNovember 30th, 2017. Therefore, all downlink sites must make this satellite change beforeNovember 30, 2017in order to receive the Olympusat's network program services. 

There will be no changes necessary with respect to the equipment/IRD/satellite receivers that operators are currently utilizing to downlink Olympusat's network program services. The operations team will only need to adjust the satellite and transponder/frequency and for some specific "Transcoding IRDs" you may need to be re-authorized.

The following network are effected by the transition from G23 to SES-1: TOKU HD, SONLIFE HD, COWBOY CHANNEL HD, RFD HD,CUBAPLAY SD, ONTV 4 U (National Sat Feed), CRTV (DIRECTV feed), LIQUIDATION CHANNEL SD, CRTV/WOW (VERIZON & FRONTIER FIOS ONLY),LOVE WORLD, GRAN CINE SD, SORPRESA SD, ULTRA FAMILIA SD, ENLACE SD, TVCHILESD, ALTAVISION SD, CINE MEXICANO SD, TELE N SD, TOKU SD, UPLIFTV, BYU (BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY), G04IT SHOPPING (VERIZON & FRONTIER FIOS ONLY), DAYSTAR TELEVISION NETWORK, COWBOY CHANNEL SD, TBN SD, HILLSONG CHANNEL SD, JUCE, SMILE OF A CHILD, SONLIFE SD, UPLIFTV (DIRECTV ONLY), GOD TV, EWTN and UNTAMED SPORTS.
