And now the news:


---------- Astra 1D set to move

 All channels on Astra 1D have finally been transferred to Astra 1E. The
charts have been accordingly changed: the digital channels once on 1E
are now on the 1G chart, and the analogue channels once on 1D are now on
the 1E chart. A transponder layout has also been created for Astra 1D's
digital layout at 28.2 east. Astra 1D will start moving east any time
now and should be ready for service in mid-March.
 While on the subject of Astra, French channel CSN - Canal Satellite
Numérique, which uses the Astra 1F and 1G satellites, has started
transmitting in both Mediaguard, as before, and Viaccess. This may be
due to the recent proposed merger between CSN and TPS - Télévision par
Satellite, which itself uses Viaccess.
