The company is showcasing Es’hail-1, currently transmitting high-quality, premium DTH television content from the 25.5°/26° E neighbourhood for leading channels such as
Al Jazeera and beIN Sports.  
In addition to providing transmission and expansion opportunities for news and sports channels, a growing number of new Arabic channels are choosing Es’hailSat to launch in the Mena region, according to a statement.
Qatari cultural channel Al Rayyan 2 and Al Araby Television Network, a London-based channel that aims to be a platform for Arab youth, talent, energy and aspirations, both recently launched HD channels exclusively on Es’hail-1.  
“Es’hailSat is also pushing ahead with plans to expand its satellite fleet, with the planned launch of its second satellite in 2016. Es’hail-2, a new high-performance satellite with sophisticated anti-jamming capabilities, will be positioned at the 26° E hotspot position for TV broadcasting, significantly adding to the company’s ability to provide high- quality, premium DTH television content across the Middle East and North
Africa,” the statement notes.
Es’hail-2 is expected to be launched at the end of 2016, while discussions are already going on with customers and stakeholders to define the requirements for a further
satellite - Es’hail-3.
With a commitment to providing broadcasters with secure and independent satellite transmission, Es’hailSat has also commissioned its own teleport, which will be completed in 2H 2017.
Ali al-Kuwari, president and CEO, Es’hailSat, said: “CABSAT is an important occasion where Es’hailSat can confirm its position as a key player for satellite communications in the region.”
