Hispasat will responsible for the monitoring and supervision of this transmission.

The Lurin teleport is one of the largest in the region and offers satellite reception and transmission services in standard and extended Ku-band, C-band and DBS. As a result, Hispasat customers can deploy their own direct-to-home (DTH) television services, contribution and distribution of satellite channels to cable operators, telecommunications operators and service providers, as well as the transmission of occasional events, among others.
