So they will move all the MPEG-4s to the new Sat right away?
Any HD that gets added will be on the new sat and the RSNs will also move to the new sat so they can go on the CONUS beams. Locals will stay where they are on the spotbeams.

Will you actually need the BBC though at this point?
They are simply attempting to get everyone upto date, during these next 2 months...
So you don't have to wait for any type of backlog, or shortages in September

The message says you need the B-Band on "all high definition equipment", but I assume that doesn't include the HD-Tivo? I know it will never get the new channels, but this recording makes it sound like it will lose the current HD channels without a B-Band connected.
You only need them for the HR20 and H20.

What does B-Band mean
BBC=Broad Band Converter. They are the little gray boxes you connect in between the SAT line and the HR20/H20. They will allow you to receive the new MPEG4 HD channels when they launch.
