Directv 9S is scheduled for sometime in 2006, as a backup for Directv 4S or Directv 7S. Spaceway 3 and Directv 10S are scheduled for early 2007 according to LyngSat.

Will these new satellites benefit us 3 LNB, H10 users? Or is it just for the new MPEG 4 end user?

I don't care about the next ones until after D* has Spaceway 2 operational. It has been 4 months since the launch and it still has not been turned over for D*'s use.
