The first direct to home (DTH) satellite TV platform could be established in Pakistan with Russian investment and know-how utilised to modernise the country’s broadcast infrastructure, according to a local report.
The Business Recorder says a joint venture initiative has been discussed at the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI), during a visit yesterday by Sergey L. Dolgopolsky of Russia’s General Satellite Company, and Andrey Demidov, Consol General of Russia in Pakistan.
As part of his visit, Mr Dolgopolsky has also reportedly met with various television channels in Pakistan, to whom he also extolled the virtues of introducing a domestic DTH platform. The General Satellite Company would be willing to invest 50% of the project’s costs to realise, according to the report, which would further strengthen bilateral ties between Russia and Pakistan.
The FPCCI, headed by Muhammad Mansha Churra, was also told during the meeting that DTH technology could also bring an information portal, providing opportunities in e-commerce, e-education and telemedicine, to the entire population of Pakistan.
Mr Dolgopolsky requested the FPCCI introduce his company to any interested parties, and also to help a resultant joint venture obtain a license to realise the domestic DTH broadcasting scheme.

They also have a project in Cambodia... just read about it on their homepage.

General Satellite Has Signed a Letter of Intent with a Cambodian Partner
Today, August 19, 2011, the General Satellite Corporation signed a Letter of Intent on establishing a broadcasting joint project in the Kingdom of Cambodia with a group of companies named Royal Group. The signing was preceded by quite a few months of negotiations and marketing research. The Project involves establishing a pay TV Operator to carry out the DVB-T format broadcasting in Cambodia by means of the General Satellite Company’s technology.

The General Satellite Company’s Partner in this Project - the “Royal Group” group of companies - is the best-known conglomerate in Cambodia, whose business scope includes banking and telecommunications (mobile operator and internet provider), and media industry (2 TV channels of the Royal Group own production).

Oh, and also in Africa... they are working everywhere
Quote: AFRICA-WORLD: The promise of new age satellite and digial broadcasting.
Russian-owned General Satellite Corporation threw its hat into the ring to become a contender in the race to provide a credible DTH Free-To-Air satellite service across the continent. Others are in the wings and so this will be a race to watch over the next 12-18 months.

The back-drop to the interest in DTH Free-To-Air broadcasting is the shift to digital amongst Africa's terrestrial broadcasters. The deadline for this shift has been agreed as 2015. DTH Free-To-Air delivery offers two potential benefits for the digital transition process. It can offer another national channel for delivery as satellite signals can cover the whole of a country. However, you trade cheaper capital investment (CAPEX) against the need to buy satellite signal on an on-going basis (OPEX). Thus far, none of the early adopters on the continent have really discussed this option.
