The EchoStar VIII satellite is set to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Tuesday, Aug. 20, aboard a Proton launch vehicle.

The satellite was originally scheduled to fly on June 22. Just prior to launch, anomalous readings from a command receiver on the satellite were observed, resulting in the delay, the company said. The problem was identified and has since been corrected, EchoStar added.

OTHER NOTES: It now looks like Time Warner Cable in Texas won't charge subscribers with set-top boxes damaged by recent flooding as much as $300 or more for the wrecked equipment.

On Friday, a local Time Warner Cable executive told the San Antonio Express-News that a "miscommunication" caused some employees to wrongly tell customers they would be charged for boxes damaged or destroyed by the floods. Earlier last week, a Time Warner spokesperson said customers would be assessed for any equipment damaged or destroyed by the flooding.
