Letter: American satellite coverage of Gerry Adams

Sir: Niall Meeban objected in your columns (letter, 5 February) to the 'censoring' of Gerry Adams by NBC Super Channel, and invited us to clarify our position.

NBC Super Channel uplinks from the UK to the Eutelsat 2 F1 satellite, and is licensed to this effect by the ITC as a 'non-domestic satellite service'.
