Satellites are nice - and they are needed to provide service - but DISH has already put all of their licensed transponders into service. Any expansion would require new licenses and new dishes to get those signals to customers.
 
DISH is already doing 9 feeds per transponder ... 10 in some cases, a couple less in some cases. DirecTV's move from five to six feeds per transponder is practically a baby step compared to the way DISH shoehorns in HD.

I remember when DISH first put 12 SD channels on a transponder (MPEG2 QPSK). Now 9 HD channels is typical. It would take a really good encoder to do more channels than what DISH is doing and still call it HD.

 

Yeah that is a lot, maybe.  I thought they used wider transponders with more bandwidth, no?  if not, then they have to be hurting pq to do that if they are using the same delivery method and bandwidth space Directv is.

I do not know the bandwidth of DirecTV's transponders. DISH does have the benefit of using high powered Ku DBS for most of their service (all except internationals on 118 and business TV channels on 121).

DISH's transponders are narrower (24MHz vs 36MHz). The saving grace is that because they use Ku band, they can use the latest multiplexing schemes and relatively low forward error correction. These technologies aren't as useful with Ka.

How about cramming 11 "HD" channels on each transponder? That is what it would take to add everything. :)

Smithsonian wanted more money than Dish thought it was worth... and I don't think there have been any real complaints since either of those channels were dropped.  It'll likely be a cold day before we see those again.

Have they upped the rate at which they bring new content to bear? Smithsonian was adding less than five days of content per year to fill 365 days of programming.

Does adding HBOs actually add to the play list or are they just juggling the same tired content into different time slots?

HBO isn't alone as Epix can't seem to stop playing Star Trek: Edge of Darkness for more than a few hours at a time.

Are we ever going to getTvland in HD? Every other provider has the HD feed . They also produce new content in HD like "Hot inCleveland".
