NPR Satellite Services offers uplinking services on a temporary or full-time basis.

Full-Time Uplinking

Over 50 system and independent uplink sites are available coast to coast. Transmissions from the uplinks are monitored by our Network Operations Center (NOC) 24 hours a day, every day.

Occasional Satellite Use

If you need on-demand satellite time for breaking news, corporate meetings, video conferences or sporting events, without a long-term commitment, NPR Satellite Services has got you covered. We offer reliable, cost-effective occasional satellite space segment for distributing audio or video across the country.


A full uplink and distribution capability for networks with the necessary equipment, 24x7x365 operational support and redundancy for reliability. Stations send their programming to the Hub, and NPRSS uplinks it to our satellite, providing tremendous cost and resource savings without burdensome licensing costs and requirements.
