If quoted accurately by Swanni, Philip Goswitz must have meant "CONUS" Ka band capacity, not "local into local."
.... Does anyone else think it's weird that they're implying the KU signals will be used for 4K and the KA birds will be used for HD?
Yes, particularly when transponder bandwidth for the DBS Ku band has long been established by international agreement at only 24 MHz for our region (ITU's AP 30/30A Region 2 Plan).
Unless they plan on changing the rules or something, they're contemplating to try and squeeze 4k TV through that?
Won't get many channels ...
