    SKY Digital Restored, Customers Credited

    SKY TV has confirmed that the Optus B1 satellite that failed at around 7pm Thursday night became operational again at 8.05am Friday morning.


    Earlier SKY had indicated that the re-pointing of the satellite would be carried out at around mid-night but subscribers awoke this morning to find their beloved service still giving only error messages.

    The text of the Sky media release follows:

    "Friday, 31 March 2006

    SKY SATELLITE SERVICE RESTORED

    SKY’s satellite signal was lost at 6.50p.m. last night (NZ time Thursday 30 March), after a routine positioning procedure to the satellite by Optus. This effectively meant that the SKY transmission signal was lost to its customers (except UHF subscribers). Optus immediately acknowledged the problem and undertook restoration procedures. SKY’s satellite signal was re-established at 8.05a.m. today (NZ time) and the services are in the process of being restored.

    SKY will credit customer accounts for the loss of one day’s service."
