Despite fears that North American viewers would have their cable-television service disrupted from a rogue satellite, the communications device has come and gone without any major disruptions, reports Multichannel News

Intelsat’s Galaxy 15, which stopped responding to controllers in April, passed SES World Skies’ AMC-11 satellite between May 30 to May 31, but efforts to eliminate a signal disruption were apparently successful.

SES had moved AMC-11 away from the zombie satellite and had temporarily adjusted it to make it more sensitive than Galaxy 15. AMC-11 transmits more than 11 cable networks to the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean, ranging from A&E to Spike TV.
