S. cable industry. Before this merger, the top four commercial satellite operators ran nearly half the world’s satellites; this concentration of control will now increase. In all these instances, satellite technology has called into question conventional notions of the nation-state. Geographic borders may be insufﬁcient deﬁnitions of culture and nationality in an era of electronic information, beamed from multiple sources into the sky and down again into almost any location. International TV journalists, for example, no longer needed the permission of local authorities to transmit television news stories to the world—by 2003, briefcase-size satellite uplinks and laptop computer video editing had made such transmissions common from an embattled Iraq and from the remotest conﬂict zones in Africa.
Overuse of the C and Ku bandwidths and the desire for even greater signal strength is leading to new satellites that use other areas of the radio spectrum. Television news has also made some use of another satellite technology, remote sensing, using pictures taken by satellites to illustrate or verify news stories. S. government purchased all the best commercially available satellite imagery to prevent the media from using it. Encryption, or scrambling, of satellite television signals has become common to ensure that only customers who have bought or rented a decoder can receive transmissions.
