Orbital Media Takes Up Where CCSS Left Off

A new company has acquired the former Clear Channel Satellite Services and is continuing support of its clients.
Radio World reported in November that CCSS parent iHeartMedia planned to stop services to non-iHeartMedia users. Business observers speculated at the time that the big company preferred not to be in the business of providing backbone transport capacity to competitors of its own stations and other holdings. At the time a spokeswoman told RW only that its move to cease programming distribution to outside clients was a strategic business decision.
The move set off a scramble among some users to find alternate providers.
Now the CCSS satellite and distribution business (which, very briefly, bore the name iHeartMedia Satellite Services) has been acquired and its name changed to Orbital Media Networks. Its owner and president is Sam Dibrell Jr.
“Orbital Media Networks Inc. will continue to operate from the Englewood, Colo., facility previously occupied by CCSS with no interruption in satellite service or customer support,” Dibrell told clients in a letter.
“The previous notification made by CCSS regarding discontinuation of satellite services is officially rescinded, and we are honoring all existing customer contracts under their original terms.”
