The IS-17 satellite was launched in November 2010 and entered service in January 2011. It provides C- and Ku-band capacity across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia from the 66º E orbital location, with an expected service life through 2026.

Intelsat S.A., the world's leading provider of fixed satellite services, today announced that Sun TV Network Ltd. (Sun TV) has signed a multi-year, multi-transponder contract for C-band capacity on the recently launched Intelsat 17 satellite (IS-17) at the 66º E orbital location. The agreement marks the second major programmer to join the line-up at Intelsat's newly expanded video neighborhood in the Indian Ocean region

Kurt Riegelman, Intelsat’s SVP of Global Sales, said, “The addition of Sun TV further enhances IS-17 as the Indian Ocean region’s new programming neighborhood. We are grateful for the opportunity to support Sun TV’s regional content distribution requirements and HD expansion plans.”

ISRO got only 7 slots from ITU & in near future they will put at least 2 satellites in each slot for IRNS & ARMY. So it is better to switche to foreign satellite co. & Antrix work hard for this.
