Sun Direct Gains Satellite Capacity To Boost DTH Service

Sun Direct uses 13 transponders. Nine of these are with Malaysian satellite operator, Measat and four with Indian satellite, GSAT; in total eight of these transponders were added in 2018. The DTH operator now offers around 300 standard definition channels (up from 256 channels) and 69 high definition channels.

Sun Direct is also working with Harmonic to upgrade its encoding system to HEVC from MPEG 4, to broadcast a higher number of channels within its existing bandwidth.
