Reported as having "improved coverage of western Europe & Poland" It would be a shame if 13E went down the route of specific beams after being widebeam for so many years

It is almost certain that specific beams will be designed for Poland.
Can you elaborate on your reply are you referring to “Eutelsat Quantum" or Hotbird's 13F & 13G ?

Eutelsat Quantum may move to 33.1 east west where there is a Polish transponder then allow Eutelsat 33E to maybe move to 12.5 west ?

But the New HotBirds 13F & 13G will almost certainly stay on the wide beam as mentioned in the above post.

We have no way of knowning at the moment what the new 13E beams will be like. The only definite information released has been "improved coverage to western Europe & Poland." My own belief for that statement is that there will be increased power over that geographic area so smaller dishes can be used.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Hmmm, 'dynamic reconfiguration'. Sounds like the broadcasters will be dictating where the signals end up.

Bigger dishes all round then, unless they move into a rollout of the same technology as 9E Ka band stuff.
