WASHINGTON WorldSpace has launched satellite-delivered digital radio service to Asia with its AsiaStar satellite. AsiaStar is the second of 3 satellites to be employed by WorldSpace. It will soon supply more than 40 programming channels, which can be received on certain receivers produced by Hitachi, JVC, Panasonic, and Sanyo. The first WorldSpace satellite, AfriStar, began commercial service to that continent in October, 1999. The satellite serving Latin America is set to launch in 2001.
