Yep, same thoughts here. Not sure if this is great news, or something with D10.
Very interesting indeed. The only thing I worry about is that they long ago said that they may have toss d10 early. So the question could be made is this move to eliminated some of its workload for power or other reasons. Hopefully it's just prep work. Do we know if d10 and d12 get their channels from the same earth stations?
Hopefully this is prep for all the encore and other rainbow media channels, and way early work in anticipation of all the new RSNs coming online in the next 9 months.
They may have upgraded D12 TP9 and TP10 first and just decided to pick D10 channels, or maybe there's more to it relative to the D10 issues. It's hard to tell until we see what they do with the D10 opened slots, if anything.
