DirecTV Satellite Launch Delayed

6/01/2007 09:43:00 AM Eastern

El Segundo, Calif. – The planned June 20th launch of DirecTV’s DirecTV-10 satellite has been delayed to July 6th, due to complications in the delivery of the satellite to the launch facility in Kazakhstan, according to a report in Kazakhstan Today.

DirecTV said the delay resulted from "some late processing issues in the Boeing factory but they've been resolved and we are moving forward."

DirecTV-10 is planned to give the DirecTV service up to 100 national HD channels and expanded local HD services when it begins regular transmissions. That date is still expected in September, a DirecTV spokesman told TWICE.

Next year, DirecTV is to launch a second HD satellite, DirecTV-11, which will enable DirecTV to deliver a total of 1,500 local and 150 national HD channels.
