So this is Echostar XVII,
ECHOSTAR XVII Launch Thursday!

The EchoStar XVII satellite will launch on Thursday, July 5 from the Guiana Space Center European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, and you can watch it LIVE, online on any device at www.echostar.com/launch as well as live on DISH Network channel 101!

The live broadcast will begin at 3 p.m. MT, with the actual launch window scheduled for 3:36 – 4:05 PM (launch window is subject to change).

Once the satellite, built for Hughes Network Systems by Space Systems/Loral, successfully achieves orbit and completes in-orbit testing, it will provide HughesNet Gen4 high-speed Internet service to consumers and small businesses throughout North America using EchoStar’s Emmy-winning spot beam technology. EchoStar XVII weighs more than 7,000 pounds, was assembled using more than 50,000 screws and has a wingspan of 130 feet when fully deployed.
