I agree with Ray S, once the 4 HD channels that are going to 110 are turned off of 61.5/148, this will make room for 4 new HD channels on the wings, which would be enough capacity to add Starz-HD, TMC-HD, Cinamax-HD and Bravo-HD. Only subs who want those channels would need to add the 2nd dish, however many subs already have that 2nd dish for their locals. If E* can find enough room to squeeze another TP worth of channels from 61.5, this would provide room for 2 or 3 more HD channels, which may be enough to carry them through until E10 is launched to 110 in 2005. Since all new E* HD channels are using 8psk modulation, they may find a way of getting 3 HD channels per TP, if so they may be able to put a couple more HD channels on 110 too.
Back when E* first placed a satellite on 110 and most of us subs had a Dish300 that could only see 119 and it was full, E* added new premium channels and the extra channels that made up the new AT150 package on 110 and all of us current subs at the time that wanted any of these additional channels upgraded to a Dish500, those that did not care kept their Dish300. I think the same will happen here, for a couple of months all HD except CBS-HD will be on 110, then as E* adds additional HD channels, those that are happy with their current HD channels will keep their current setup, those that want the new channels and do not already have a 2nd dish will add it and E* will have some Free upgrade deals for those that need it.
