Satellites

SES SIRIUS AB owns and operates the SIRIUS satellites in 5°E: SIRIUS 2 and SIRIUS 3.

Both SIRIUS 2 and SIRIUS 3 are used for digital Direct-To-Home (DTH) TV and radio transmissions, as well as broadband services.

SIRIUS 2 is also used for VSAT Services and occasional transmissions.

The SIRIUS system covers the Nordic, Baltic and Central and Eastern European regions with direct-to-home (DTH) power levels. SIRIUS offers pan-European direct-to-home coverage through the European beam of SIRIUS 2. The signals can be received with small dishes, 60-70 cm in most parts of Europe. In the Nordic and Baltic regions the dishes can be as small as 45-60 cm.
