With DirecTV-14 confirmed to be going into the 99° orbital slot, now is the time to speculate on what orbital slot DirecTV-15 will go into. DirecTV-15 is currently scheduled to be launched in late 2014, and will be DirecTV's first satellite of the Astrium Eurostar E3000 model. I remember hearing that it would be at 101° as a replacement for an existing satellite, however, I don't know if that is the case or not. DirecTV currently has the 9S satellite as a spare for 4S, and I would think once 4S reaches the end of its useful lifespan, 9S will replace it. Perhaps it could be a replacement for DirecTV-5 and would be positioned at 110° for Puerto Rico. What does anyone here think?
