 Intelsat 20 satellite was successfully launched by an Ariane 5 rocket from Kourou, French Guiana.

 Built by Space Systems/Loral, Intelsat 20 will provide C-band and Ku-band for DTH television, cellular backhaul and VSAT services. The Intelsat 20 video neighborhood provides premium programming that is carried by the top Indian cable MSOs and DTH operators, reaching more than an estimated 90 million Pay-TV subscribers across India. Intelsat 20 also hosts the largest DTH platform in Africa.

Intelsat 20 will replace Intelsat 7 and Intelsat 10 at 68.5° East, and is expected to have a service life of more than 18 years.
