95W is Ku but is not DBS band.

Yes, it is the FSS frequencies immediately below (and at lower power than) DBS band.

From the recent DIRECTV 10-K

 

 


We have contracted for the construction and launch of two new satellites: D14, which we expect to launch in the fourth quarter of 2014, and D15, which we

expect to launch in the first half of 2015. D14 and D15 are expected to provide additional HD, replacement and backup capacity

 

Boy, it's going to be a long year.

I think they're being overly optimistic about launching DIRECTV 15 this year. There are eight or nine launches that appear to be ahead of it (the first of which is scheduled for March 21st) and only 10 months left.

Of course launching and going into service are two decidedly different dates as well but being a near equatorial launch should help shorten the span.

White said DIRECTV 15 in 2015, not 2014, please reread the statement.

I'm speaking of Salo's calendar which still lists DIRECTV as EOY 2014 (or 2015).

Salo has updated his calendar to include the information from the investor's presentation (D14 in Q4 2014 and D15 "first half" 2015.

The year's third launch is scheduled for the end of May and the fourth is scheduled for the end of July. That leaves 2-3 dates at the current rate to cover five or so launches.

Look at Directv's 10 K Report dated 2/24/14 under "Investor Relations"

 

We have contracted for the construction and launch of two new satellites: D14, which we expect to launch in the fourth quarter of 2014, and D15, which we

expect to launch in the first half of 2015. D14 and D15 are expected to provide additional HD, replacement and backup capacity

April 3rd is a Soyuz rocket. The launch after that is a Vega rocket.

What we're concerned with is the Ariane 5 rocket launches from Kourou ELA-3 as that is what DIRECTV has contracted for.
