AMC-7 is a commercial broadcast communications satellite owned by SES S.A., originally from the GE Americom fleet. Launched on September 14, 2000, from the Guiana Space Centre in Kourou, AMC-7 provides C band coverage to North America, Hawaii, the Caribbean islands and most of Mexico, and is located in a geostationary orbit over the Pacific Ocean east of Hawaii. The satellite is primarily used for cable television programming distribution.[6][3]

In 2015 the satellite was taken out of commercial service and moved from 137° West to 135° West longitude, where it now serves as a backup to AMC-10.[3]
