What if the maybe 3 were in HD would you sign up then? What if there were TWO? Or what if you could only get the one in HD that was in your Region, would you sign up for only $1.50 more a month.
The point is if they were in HD people would sign up for some, Dish would make more money, and it would give a reason to have Dish over Cable or Directv which means more money from more customers and more pofit. Dish needs to be different to compete other wise they just have the same old channels as everyone else.
Its called Ala Carte- everyone wants options.
Superstations are a dinosaur of the sat TV business.
They provide a service that is not needed by the vast majority of subs because the programming options have so greatly expanded since they were created.
Superstations were a good option when there were many many fewer satellite TV channels available.
There are only maybe 3 superstations left and their programming is all redundant and SD.
