Space Segment

NPR Distribution Services offers transponder space segment from prime orbital locations of 99 and 91 degrees west longitude. Our transmission footprint covers the entire US, and much of the Caribbean and Mexico. Through the combination of a favorable look angle and C-band service, we can provide reliable service to the most challenging geographical locations—even in inclement weather. Additionally, our transmissions can be non-preemptible and protected by our multi-tiered approach to system backup, if you elect that level of service.
