However every TV/Data uplink/downlink has been out at the same time on 11096Ian,
The point I was trying to make is that T-Systems not Eutelsat provide the encoding and multiplexing of the signal, the uplink service and the provision of a digital satellite slot within the multiplex transmitted on HotBird. All the TV, data and radio channels on the 11096 tp are multiplexed on the 14.37516 uplink, so a problem within T-Systems on that uplink would affect all the channels on that tp be it TV, data or radio.
T-Systems customers include ARD, ZDF, RTL, RTL 2, CNN, NBC, Deutsche Welle, Kurdsat, Super RTL, VIVA Polska, VOX, Spiegel TV, DeeJay TV and Sailing Channel among others. They operate three earth stations, Usingen, Raisting and Milan.
