Noticed a whole slew of Voice of America (VOA) channels just lit up on Galaxy-19, a few days ago.
I haven't seen any actual programming on them yet, just several different "barker" channels.

They are gone now.
Doing some sleuthing, it turns out that it was an experiment, to see how much (or, little) bandwidth could be used for a video channels with "news-tickers", while linking to multiple audio channels.
Not being done to provide any USA domestic service.
