    No, from Gunter's: "SES-17 will cover North America, South America, Central America, the Caribbean and the Atlantic ocean."
    For such coverage, location will be much more to the West, say 50°W or so.

    Yeah, even more to the West I'd say looking at that graphic.
    67°W comes to mind, that is above the southern tip of Venezuela.
    The recently launched Ku-band satellite SES-10 is suspiciously stotted at 66.9°W, as if already waiting for the next one at 67.1°W. :D
