Why doesn't DirecTV carry BBCA in HD?

I'd tried to scan that thread, but it's 51 pages long... Is the reason bandwidth, DirectTV not wanting to pay BBC more for the HD feed, or both? I've now read in a few places that DirectTV doesn't have another bird going up until 2013 or 2014...
Regardless of whether they add it soon or not, I'm still switching to DirectTV if Dish doesn't resolve the AMC dispute. I'll miss Doctor Who in HD, but no way am I missing "Breaking Bad".

its the most request channel in HD on Directv, but their no sign of it coming to Directv
It's a top request on here, not necessarily out "in the world."
As for the OP, we honestly don't know. We do know that they are doing some work to increase the number of channels that can be on the satellites. We also have been told by an extremely trusted source on the inside, SatelliteRacer, that more HD is coming this year. He never gives details until the ink is dry and he can publicly say what it is, a few days before going live.

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth. That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.
