And I would go the opposite way. Cut down on the shopping channels and keep the channels in SD, and make the RSN's HD. I don't need 4 or 5 or however many shopping channels that Dish carries. I don't need all of the religious channels either. But I would love to see the RSN's in HD. It's a fairly inexpensive package, but would gladly pay more to see this happen.
I would too if you, not me, pay Dish for the RSN's in HD. Right now the shopping channel folks are a source of revenue for Dish which helps to keep the price down for all of us. Sports channels drive the price up for all of us, a fact I truly resent since I have to pay for HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, etc. - channels I want - and pay for your sports channels.
