satellite usenet does not appear to be very profitable...
Tis a shame. Satellite data broadcast of common content is an economical way to share common data. AS378 was getting 20Mb/sec of prefetched web content and Usenet news for all of $800/month before Cidera/Skycache shut down its service in Europe a year ago.

I could only find one company still advertising satellite newsfeed service:
