There's a joint venture of Dish TV in Taiwan, called EchoStar, offering a HD package called DishHD Asia, is there any one knows more about this EchStar business, and it's future business plans? who are people behind it?

How are they handling the news blackouts? The Chinese government will block some news stories, although they do let channels like CNN and MSNBC be broadcast there. But occasional stories will be blacked out.

seems to me it's for Taiwan only http://www.dishhdasia.com/en/faq.html, 211t and 612t boxes, using Conax cards and DVB-S2 tuners - nice SR = 40700 and 8PSK and FEC 2/3, would be interesting to see real bitrate of these muxes http://www.lyngsat.com/AsiaSat-5.html
by calculation http://www.satellite...te/bitrates.htm it could be 80+ Mbps ! double vs our 8PSK tpns
