GEO Systems – Growth and Competition

DirecTV recently announced the company would no longer be buying geosynchronous satellites. Worldwide video services have relied heavily on satellites for more than 30 years. Broadcasters and content producers have been able to relay real-time events to a global audience via satellite but now the internet is providing an inexpensive alternative. GEO systems are seeing competion from LEO and MEO systems but the vast majority of traffic worldwide is still GEO – what is the future?
