Share Article

Daystar Television Network, the fastest growing and second largest Christian television network in the world, has called on SatLink Communications, the fastest growing teleport in 2007, to launch the TV channel to SatLink's AsiaSat 2 MCPC (Multiple Channels Per Carrier) digital platform, allowing millions of viewers across Asia to watch this leading faith-based channel.

Our AsiaSat 2 platform draws a range of acclaimed channels, offering them the ideal entry to all of Asia, and we're honored to facilitate Daystar's free-to-air distribution to this region.

Daystar, a family friendly and ministry oriented channel, comes to join Satlink's rapidly growing bouquet of spiritual channels focused on delivering their message to the Asian market. Broadcasters around the world are choosing SatLink's transmission facilities & Satellite Services to extend their coverage to the Asia Pacific region. SatLink provides these broadcasters with a comprehensive transmission solution including downlinking the signal to SatLink's teleport near Jerusalem, uplink and capacity on its full transponder for distribution to cable head-ends, re-broadcasters and individual home viewers in the region.

Daystar provides an extensive blend of interdenominational and multi-cultural programming with a line up including contemporary music videos, children's animation, original programs such as Celebration and the award winning Joni Show, and is available in virtually every city in America and every country in the world via multiple Satellites, TV Stations, and Cable Systems.

Steve Wilhite, Daystar's Senior Vice President of Affiliate Relations said, "I personally traveled across Asia meeting with Cable and DTH providers and discovered first hand that AsiaSat 2 is the best platform choice for Daystar, delivering an excellent signal that is unmatched by some other satellites covering this area of the World. Daystar wants to reach as many people as possible and AsiaSat 2 helps us to do that. We are proud to accomplish this with SatLink directly from Jerusalem."    

Commenting on the launch of Daystar to SatLink's platform, David Hochner, Satlink's CEO said, "Our AsiaSat 2 platform draws a range of acclaimed channels, offering them the ideal entry to all of Asia, and we're honored to facilitate Daystar's free-to-air distribution to this region."

Located at 100.5 degrees East, AsiaSat 2 provides unprecedented regional power and coverage. The C-band beam covers China, India, Indonesia and other mass markets, altogether reaching 53 countries and regions in Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, CIS and Australasia. AsiaSat 2's excellent ground penetration guarantees instantaneous access to numerous cable operators, rebroadcasters, embassies, hotels and individual home viewers and listeners in the region. AsiaSat 2 also includes the largest number of foreign channels authorized by the Chinese government, and many of these are transmitted directly from SatLink's teleport.
