SES Launches Satellite for North American TV, Broadband Service

July 16 (Bloomberg) -- SES SA, the world’s largest publicly-traded satellite operator, said its SES-3 satellite took off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to help serve U.S. television networks and broadband services.

SES-3, which has a 15-year design life, will replace another SES satellite above North America in providing coverage for the region and the Caribbean, Luxembourg-based SES said today in an e-mailed statement.

SES’s next launch is scheduled for the end of this month from the European Space Port in French Guiana.
