By fourth quarter 1998, the system was deliving over 320 analogue and digital television channels, as well as radio and multimedia services, to more than 70 million homes connected to a cable network or equipped for satellite (direct-to-home or community) reception. The Hot Bird satellites provided full coverage of Europe and also took in parts of Africa and Asia, including the entire Middle East. In addition to the basic Widebeam and Superbeam, Hot Bird 3 and 4 were equipped with a Steerable Beam which could be oriented anywhere visible from 13 degrees E, either northern or southern hemisphere.
