And now the news:


---------- MORE UPDATES
As exptected, the National Geopgraphic Channel did replace Sky Two on
11,303 (tp 7) on Astra 1A. The teletext service has changed from SKY TWO
to Sky Text.
On Thor yesterday, CNN International left its old transponder of 11,785
R, and promos for Sky News and Geographic Channel have started on 11,773
R.

On Intelsat 707 TODAY, DR 2 has been replaced by a test card, entitled
"NSkyB 2". This will be the future transponder of Sky Entertainment. DR
2 is scheduled to move to Thor on 11,667 R.

CORRECTION: Yesterday I stated that LCI could now only be received from
Astra at 19,2 east. It can also be received from Eutelsat at 13 east,
as is listed in the charts. Thanx to a subscriber for pointing this out.

Eutelsat HotBird 3 is scheduled to launch tonight. Same launch window.
