somebody said that will be new channels and programming in the Spring - too much, it seems, for available channel capacity. I can only guess that they are planning on increasing capacity at such point.

Any educated speculation out there?

I thought 100 channels is the limit.

I would guess the limit is when customers complain that the sound quality is nolonger worth paying for...

We really don't need a "We have more channels than the competition" mindset.
