Intelsat announced that Orion Express signed a multi-year extension with Intelsat for satellite services supporting Direct-to-Home (DTH) and media distribution services in Russia via the Intelsat 15 satellite.

Orion Express uses multiple Ku-band transponders on Intelsat 15 and Horizons 2, co-located at 85 degrees east, to deliver DTH services to customers and TV content to cable and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) head ends. Under the new agreement, Orion Express extended its use of Intelsat 15 well into the next decade and expanded its operations by consolidating services with Intelsat that had been with another satellite operator.
