Eurobird 9A (formerly Hot Bird 7A) is a European geostationary communications satellite. The 4.1 tonne (with fuel) satellite will provide video and internet services to Europe through its 38 Ku-band transponders after parking over 13°E longitude. Update Feb 24, 2009: Eutelsat announced the entry into commercial service of its Eurobird 9A satellite at 9 degrees East. Redeployment of the satellite was made possible with the entry into service at 13 degrees East of Hot Bird 9, which released Eurobird 9A (formerly HOT BIRD 7A) for its new commercial mission to support the rapid pace of growth at Eutelsat’s 9 degrees East broadcast neighbourhood. It will replace EUROBIRD 9 at this position, doubling operational resources from 20 to 38 transponders.
