DIRECTV 15 is designed to broadcast ultra-clear 4K Ultra HD television signals to DirecTV's subscribers across the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Based on the Eurostar E3000 satellite bus built by Airbus Defense and Space, DirecTV 15 will drift to an operational slot in geostationary orbit at 102.8 degrees west longitude, where it will provide direct-to-home services to DirecTV's 20 million subscribers in the United States. The craft is packed with more than 150 high-power amplifiers, Ku-band transponders, Ka-band transponders, and transponders in the the so-called 'reverse band' normally used to send signals from Earth into space.
