Is it Bandwidth?
Is it Cost?
Anybody knows?

Well the coined response is that there is a lack of compelling content there. But there is also a lack of bandwidth, and the other cost issues etc...

Dish has been testing putting 3 HD channels per transponder for a while but nothing has seem to come of that yet.

With programming negotions and the locals push, HD has been put on the back burner for a while...

I think the HD stuff won't come up until May when TNT comes live, then some stuff may start to happen.

I have a feeling some of those channels would be up is 80% of their content was in HD, but with only 1 moive a day (if your lucky) in HD, its not worth it yet.
