The Bulgarian provider Satellite BG will cease its packages and therefore its transmission on the Astra 3 (23.5° E) position from 1 June 2013. The company filed for bankruptcy.

Is planeta carried on the Czech or Slovak services? If so an alternative transmission arrangement will be put in place.

The channels that are used by Skylink will remain on Astra 3.
