HI there,

There are several options:
1. Send the channel by IP (you will need a dedicated link) to a teleport that already broadcasts over those satellites.
2. Find a provider who has free capacity on those satellites and then you can broadcast from studio.
3. If the content does not require live content and can be prepared weeks or days before actually being broadcast, you can actually make copies of the content and send it by DHL to the broadcasting teleport.

You will need to consider as well who will do the playout (the studio or the teleport), you will need to consider if the feeds and broadcast will be free or encrypted, you will need to consider the encodings and schemes and also if there will be only one source (single studio) or several feeds, such as SNG's etc.

Good luck,
