About the Departing Channels:

  • Mezzo (12265 V 28000 7/8): Established in 1989, Mezzo is a renowned channel dedicated to classical music, opera, jazz, and dance. Its absence from Thor 5 might be due to a contract expiration or a change in broadcasting strategy.
  • Extreme Sports Channel (12265 V 28000 7/8): This channel likely focused on extreme sports like skateboarding, snowboarding, and motocross. Its departure could be due to channel closure or a move to a different satellite.
