NBC Signs For Hot Bird 5
  PARIS, France, 96/08/06 (TS) -- NBC and Eutelsat have signed a contract
that gives NBC Super Channel a 12 year home on the yet-to-be-launched
Eutelsat Hot Bird 5 satellite. The bird is scheduled to enter service in 1999.

  The deal will mean NBC Super Channel will remain at the 13 degrees East
position in the European skies, a place it now can be found with carriage on
Eutelsat II-F1. The new satellite will offer a stronger signal over more of
Europe ensuring the station can get into as many homes as possible, said the
London based broadcaster.

  NBC also announced the launch of pages on the World Wide Web to support
its international TV operations.
