Intelsat 9 (IS-9) (formerly PAS-9) is a Intelsat Atlantic Ocean region satellite which delivers communications services throughout the Americas, the Caribbean and Western Europe. Following its launch from a floating platform in the Pacific Ocean (Sea Launch), Intelsat 9 succeeded the PAS-5 Atlantic Ocean Region satellite at 58 degrees west longitude, serving as the video neighborhood in the region as well as providing Internet and data services.

Intelsat 9 also serves as the transmission platform for SKY México's direct-to-home (DTH) service. The service employs a dozen Ku-band transponders on Intelsat 9 for the digital delivery of more than 160 channels directly to consumers' homes.

On 11 September 2001, the Al Jazeera network used the PAS 9 to broadcast the tragedies occurring in New York into Qatar.
