Star One C2 is a Brazilian communications satellite. It was launched on 18 April 2008 22:17 UTC by an Ariane 5ECA carrier rocket, as part of a dual-payload launch with Vinasat-1. It was built by Thales Alenia Space, based on the Spacebus-3000B3 satellite bus.[1] It will be operated by Star One, a subsidiary of Embratel, and Bolivarsat.


On June 2, 2008, Star One C2 replaced BrasilSat B4 in the task of broadcasting the main Brazilian TV network channels. This position, at 70,0° W, had been once occupied by Brasilsat B1.

Since December 2008, Star One C2 transmits the Claro TV pay TV package. The service is supplied by Embratel and Claro companies and operates in Ku band.
