No. Quoting from the cover article in the new (September/October 2000)
issue of the AMSAT Journal:

"About two or three days before launch Arianespace will publish the
satellite coordinates for the launch broadcast. Arianespace purchases
spot-time on commercial communications satellites and the exact
transponder which will be available isn't known until the launch
date is firm. Expect a special AMSAT News Service bulletin with this
information. In the United States all Arianespace launches are
broadcast on commercial C-Band unscrambled transponders."
