I wonder if DISH would be so bold to add BBC AMerica by 7/08/09? It would be so nice to see Dr. Who in true hd . Since Torchwood won't be back on HDNET, I would really like to add BBC America to the hd list.

NO link but i seem to remember that somewhere it was said that HDNET only had the contract to show Torchwood for one season. IF not, then it will run after its original run on BBC America.
