What ever your definition of European skies...
from 45.1 West, Echostar 15 will only beam to the Americas.

Well maybe 40W is pushing it a bit, but its above the horizon for most of Europe even if the beams arent firing our way :D

Yes the UK has opportunities even up to 80 West to maybe get some spill over signals.

Think Echo-15 is the first newish American satellite thats been punted round this way - launched in 2010

(Discounting AMC-14 which was allocated a new role after a partial launch failure and is very heavily inclined at 30E)
