    That is correct Aransay. That footprint at the link above is for echo4, after the move the footprint of echo 8 will probably be a lot better for US. Current echo is better oriented for service to mexico.

    As it is now I could not get all 4 working tps. Just 2

    Echo 8 at 77° will be for US service, not Mexico service. Relevant for other threads (Eastern Arc, etc) but not really for this odd Mexico service thread.

    "Additionally ECHOSTAR-8 may be used to provide DBS service to Mexico by using
    up to 8 transponders."

    per the attached narrative, so I guess it's relevant in both threads :)

    The load from Echostar 8 (at 110) will start to be transfered to Echostar XI this week and should be completed by Sept 1st according to an email that I got from an "insider". Once that is complete Echostar 8 will be moved to 77 degrees west. That move is suppose to take "about" two weeks (again, according to the "insider").

    If all that happens in the time frame mentioned we should start seeing U.S. channels shortly after the middle of September on the 77 degree bird. The 77 (and 72.2) slots (for U.S. service) will require the purple G3 card and, as mentioned before, all U.S. channels will be MPEG-4 from these slots. 61.5 will still work with the old cards until the card update is complete (early next year). The "insider" did not know what cards the Mexican service would need but he suspected that it will go with the G3 (Nagra3) cards from the start.

    Not exactly Echo 8 would serve both markets,according to my source 13 transponders would be used for the mexican service .
    Echo 4 has 4 active transponders,working 6 or 7,rumours are floating that 75 channels would be the initial offer extending after.

    Bill R thxs for the info

    If you can find more info about mexican Dish/Mastv Satelital/Quetzsat/Telmex Tv any info that you can find about the mexican service is gratly apreciated.

    *Personal question do you have any clue about what kind of receivers will be used in the mexican service MPEG-2 or MPEG4?

    I have heard that the Mexican service will initially be MPEG-2. I'm guessing that MPEG-4 will be used sometime in the future (but I haven't heard any rumors about that or a possible time frame).

    Is it that much cheaper to have MPEG 2 service? I mean this is a brand new market, with the way things are going today if I were starting from scratch I would start with MPEG 4. Just seems like the smart thing to do.

    Thanks Bill R for the quick reply,to me is a bad decision that they plan to use MPEG-2,they should use MPEG-4 to have more channels per tp.

    I agree with both of you about going with MPEG-4 right from the start. It could be because of the receivers that they plan on providing for the service (NO one seems to know that information) or it could be that my source is wrong :nono2: (it would not be the first time).
