I would agree with you, but I have a hard time reconciling the lack of Canadian HD when compared with D*'s ability to:
A) show 125 Super 15 Rugby games from the southern hemisphere in pristene HD and
show all the non-Fox Champions League / Europa League matches
And both are included in your subscription at no additional charge.
I know it's apples / oranges and the transmissions / costs are different, but it should not be that hard to add more HD to CI.
And I'll ask the reverse of your question...
If D* charged $10 or $15 more for CI, and ALL Canadian games were HD, would they lose any subscribers? I know I'd pay.
Never thought of that, thanks. Been watching Canadian HD through GC on a 46" Panasonic plasma and it looks pretty dang good. TSN feed of the Oilers last night and Sportsnet west feed a few nights prior with no D* SD fuzziness in sight.
