After three decades of service, the AMC-8 satellite is nearing end of life and will not be replaced. Skyview Networks, along with four other major U.S. radio networks, will be repointing their satellite dishes to AMC-18, which will then be replaced by a newer satellite, SES-11, in the same location later in the year. February 1 through June 30 will serve as an overlap period, which will allow Skyview to provide service on both AMC-8 and AMC-18 while its stations re-point their downlink antennas in the new direction. Once SES-11 is implemented, users will have over a decade of service to their networks.
