  1. Amatan ,

    Measat 3B has 4 Beams (Malaysia , Indonesia , India & Australia) and 48 Ku Band TPs.

    NewSat is new satellite company , operating in Australia. It leased 6 Ku band TP’s in Australian beam from Measat 3B and marketing with Brand name Jabiru-2.

    Same-way Measat booked few TP’s in Newsat’s Jabiru-1 (will be launched in 2015) and Measat will market it under Brand name Measat-3C


  2. Is this satellite available for use with Sun Direct and Reliance Digital TV? But Jabiru 2 doesn’t have coverage as per their site.

    “Highly targeted Ku-band
    Jabiru-2’s Ku-band payload will deliver 216 MHz of highly targeted “raw” capacity over high demand regions including the Pilbara, the Kimberley, Western Australia’s North West Shelf, Timor Gap, Timor Leste and Papua New Guinea. These high intensity “hot zones” will provide more efficient solutions to support large bandwidth applications, employee productivity and operational efficiency.”

    Jabiru 2’s coverage as per their site:

  3. Good news for sundirect and RDTV users.
