Spacecom is providing broadcast services on its Amos 5 satellite for the Nedbank Golf Challenge, Africa’s premier international golf tournament. The sporting event is running from December 5 to 8, 2013 at Sun City, a luxury resort in South Africa’s North West Province.
Amos 5, which was designed and built specifically to cover Africa, is broadcasting the golf tournament, often dubbed “Africa’s Major,” on its C-band beam. The satellite also has three Ku bands that cover the continent, in addition to providing connectivity to Europe and the Middle East. The satellite’s 17 degrees-East location allows it to cover every region in Sub-Saharan Africa.
