Asiasat was at Broadcast Asia this year to announce the imminent launch of two satellites in 2014.

Fred Ho, director, technical operations, Asiasat said: “We are showing our Asiasat coverage and all our content providers that are on-board on our Asiasat satellite fleet. We are also going to launch two more satellites in 2014, so we are letting the customer industry know about this and explaining our services to them.”

Ho said Broadcast Asia is a good time to see customers, vendors and friendly competitors. He also mentioned that Asiasat has been supporting Broadcast Asia for many years and he think the show is fantastic, and is one of the major must-be-at exhibitions in Asia.

Ho said: “We are telling the industry that we are still in the game and we explain to our customers here, high-level information about the direction we are going in. Asiasat is very dynamic and always has some projects that it is involved in. The rest of the year, our main focus will be the completion of building our Asiasat 6 and Asiasat 8 satellites. We are upgrading the teleport in Hong Kong for our new satellites.”
