started a test transmission in Australia. It uses the Optus B3 at  156,0E
and is currently shows a test card . The frequency is 12,564 H ( Optus
Vision digital package), transmission is digital with the following : SR

Up to now only one Greek channel is transmitting in Australia, Ant1
Pacific. Another Greek network, State owned ERT is seeking a satellite to
carry its signal to that region, in which thousands of Greek Immigrants
live.

* Rumors have it that Multichoice Greece is planning to launch a Pay Per
View (PPV) Sports Channel , mainly for Greek Soccer Games. The company
holds the broadcast rights for the A and B league. This would be of great
interest to Greeks in Europe who wish to view specific soccer games. The
question of the cost and the payment method remains to be answered

* Other rumors say that the long awaited subscription cards for Multichoice
Hellas Digital Package will start to be distributed in March, some even set
the date for March 6th. Meanwhile there have been a lot of changes in the
channel lineup on both frequencies ( Hotbird 2&3 )The latest are : FilmNet
Hellas, SuperSport - K.TV, Mega Channel, 
ANT-1, ET-1, Star Channel, New Channel, CCTV 4, Animal Planet, Travel, BBC
World, ERT 
International, Future Channel, CCTV 4, MAD TV, SKAI, Kanali 5, Promo, Test
B. 
Main changes are : instead of Star Channel shown twice now CCTV 4 is shown
twice . Eurotica Rendes-Vous was removed and New Channel was added.

* Channel changes were completed between Astra 1D and Astra 1E . The later
took all the channels previously shown by Astra 1D and Astra 1D will start
to move for its new position at  28,2Å , which will be completed in 3
weeks. Astra 1D is expected to be in service by mid - March.
Reception in Greece is slightly better with the new Astra1E, since its
coverage extends more towards Greece than its older brother, Astra1D
Latest info says that Astra 2A is to be launched in May using a Proton
launch vehicle.
