Skylink is a satellite service that offers Czech and Slovak TV and radio stations to residents of Slovakia and the Czech Republic. The package includes channels received without subscription and pay-TV channels.

A number of HDTV channels were introduced into the package in 2009, and Skylink claimed to have 500,000 subscribers from Slovakia and the Czech Republic,[1] but by the end of the 2009, Skylink had 900,000 subscribers.[2] Furhermore by April 2010, Skylink has reached 1,000,000 subscribers. Initially, all channels were scrambled in the Cryptoworks System. However, this system will only be supported until 2012. Currently, Skylink scrambles all channels in the new Irdeto System. Therefore all new channels are now scrambled only in the Irdeto System, and each customer has the possibility to buy a new card Skylink Výměna (Skylink exchange), which is able to decode both new Irdeto as well as old Cryptoworks codes simultaneously, and can work in old Cryptoworks decoders - customers do not have to change their receivers for new Irdeto decoders.

The Skylink package is broadcast from Astra 3A at 23.5° east.
